It was fantastic to have the ladies talk to the crowd for a long period of time, the ladies talked about how sunny London was and how we should have bigger visors. They also asked for our cafe recommendations, to with people responded with Nandos, well you can buy coffee there i suppose ! Also nice to know they have never tried Pret a Manger before but absolutely love it. I have never seen such interaction with the audience before and welcome more - hopefully with a translator however Mr Mida from the crowd did a sufficient job of explaining what Nandos was to the ladies.

People also had the option of standing or sitting with a good view of the stage and there were a few screens to see the ladies in full view and the animations. The actual  light show and animations worked well with the more technological theme the ladies went with this year. With four dress changes and only a break to talk to the crowd they put on a great entertaining show keeping the crowd on their tip toes with enjoyment jumping up and down to classics such as CLING CLING and Game.

Worth the money and would love to see them again ! Thank you to Malcolm Critchell for the wonderful photos from the concert ~Aisha Anime~
