The hit show Glee, which started over a year ago in the US, finally arrived in the UK at the end of June at the London O2 Arena in Greenwich.
I was very lucky to get Glee tickets thanks to my husband, and yesterday, the day finally came to see the cast live!! Yeah!
To get with the spirit, we went for Glee t-shirts and the foam hands…yes, we got sucked into buying the merchandise! Well, everyone else was!
We got to our seats around 7:15 p.m., nothing happened until 8 p.m. where we had dancers come on stage. Glee has two brilliant dancers, Britney and Mike, and I thought it was them. Instead, it was their supporting act.
After they left the stage, the curtain came down and we had to wait again along with all the other screaming fans!
Just about 9 p.m., the Glee cast finally arrived on stage! Yippee!
The guys opened up with Don’t Stop Believing, a brilliant song.
