This post is about Joe’s reward for his operations in early 2009 ( see “Brave” ) I promised him that as soon as I could I would take him to see John Barrowman, his favourite actor/singer in concert for being so brave and putting up with it all !
Well it took a while waiting for the next tour to come round but as soon as it was announced I was down at The Brighton Centre to book tickets. Joe had not forgotten but I didn’t tell him and managed to keep it a secret. On the night of the performance we told him we were just going out to eat so he was confused when we got to the centre, as we went in there was a huge poster of John’s show and he was so excited, all through the show he sat mesmerized and was so quiet. He loved every bit of the show and got to here one he didn’t know “The Doctor and I” which was fantastic.
He and I got up for the last song and went down the front to sing along to John’s trade mark song “ I Am what I Am“. Which is Joe’s favourite. It was a great show and we waited by the stage door to see John come out which took about 20 mins but we where right at the front and Joe managed to shake his hand briefly as he moved towards the get away car.
Well it was a late night and Joe fell asleep in the back of the car hugging his souvenir programon the way home. He’s not going to forget that night 🙂
