Gilbert O'Sullivan Life in Amsterdam
I just came home from a Gilbert O'Sullivan concert. A couple of months ago, when I saw the announcement that he would perform in Amsterdam, I was very surprised as I hadn't heard about him for ages. I grew up with his songs that were my older brother's favourites around 1970, so when I heard about this concert I called my brother and he was immediately interested to go. So tonight we went and were not disappointed. Aged 61, Gilbert is still a great singer and performer and we enjoyed listening to all our old favourites (Nothing Rhymed, Matrimony, Claire, Get Down, Alone Again (naturally)) and some new songs.
