Eddie Izzard at the O2
Went to see the divine Mr Izzard last night in the cosy, intimate surroundings of the O2 last night. Excellent show especially the giraffe mime. Who would have thought 10 years ago that a comedian could sell out a massive venue like this? I was musing if there were any classical stars who could sell a venue this size. Liz thought Renee Fleming might but I was doubtful. I thought probably only the 3 tenors which is no longer an option, of course. As we left the area someone tried to hand us a flyer for Katherine "Welsh Banshee" Jenkins! Hmmm. Not the sort of "classical" star I was talking about!
