James Morrison concert hits the high notes

Friday 26th June 2009

“Whatever the weather, you“re getting an experience and we“ll be doing everything we can to make it a great one you“ll remember.”

JAMES Morrison talked things up prior to his arrival and he certainly lived up to all expectations. He played a set lasting more than one-and-a-half hours; belting out all the classics in front of a passionate crowd. More than nine thousand spectators enjoyed the experience as Kent County Cricket Club“s St Lawrence Ground once again outlined its ability to successfully stage high profile concerts.

The hallowed Canterbury turf, more famed for fielding top cricketers, was full of a range of enthusiastic concert goers, all with one thing in common; music and a love of James Morrison. With the music in full swing, and the drink flowing, it was a pleasure to see so many happy, smiling faces – dancing to all the classics, such as Broken Strings, You Give me Something and You Make it Real.

Without doubt, this guy is here to stay and it wasgood to see him play live in Kent in front of such a passionate and enthusiastic crowd. The night was a total success with support acts Vagabond and Lisa Mitchell also proving popular.

Kent and England wicketkeeper Geraint Jones was there to witness the event, along with former world Featherweight champion Barry McGuigan, and many other celebrities too. Putting on two concerts in as many nights proved challenging but with more than 15,000 spectators enjoying the two gigs it was clearly worth all the effort.

We all enjoyed it and so too did James. It was reported to those involved in organising the event that the James Morrison team felt that it was one of the best gigs that he has ever played. When you consider that he is currently supporting Take That, and playing in front of sold-out arenas, that is some testament.
