Richard has been with the tour since conception. Ellie joined recently after finishing with 1D. Other regular members of the team are on the tour too (Gabs and Andy J to name but two) Last night they were in Paris, possibly the first major gig to take place since the horrific events of Friday 13th. I think this tour is looking very good. Definitely worth all the effort and time Richard and Pryd (LD) put in over the summer….
So this week Richard is in rehearsal with Simply Red.
Beki spent Tuesday doing on-site management and show calling at the BFI Luminous Gala at the Guildhall for the lovely ladies at Fisher Productions. During rehearsals she gave one of the presenters some speaker training before realising it was a very famous actor (Sorry, Tom Hiddleston!) Luckily the other presenters were household names (Jonathan Ross and Steve Coogan) so were spared the ordeal.
Beki and the LB’s (Richards name for the kids, don’t ask…) got to dance on stage in Hyde Park with Chic and the legendary Nile Rodgers. Richard was directing cameras for Star Turn Kylie at The British Summer Time festival so the rest of the family were unashamed liggers. We had a great time, sharing the stage with Sam Smith and some bloke from Strictly Come Dancing (OK, he was a bit better than us)
