Make a Wish!

Some may remember that quite recently, I've been able to make an old dream come true. And today, I prepare myself… to smash another one!

Indeed, and like a couple of other examples I couldn't have dreamt of (more on them in some future posts…), I'm gonna live something I thought impossible, and in some odd circumstances too!

Note to Florian: You may think I'm gonna reiterate the li'l teasing game I played with my readers in some previous posts; but you're wrong :) ! Here, I'm gonna tell you all in this very post!

OK. So let's be more specific…

Most (?) of you know I'm a die-hard fan of Tears for Fears. (Frankly, I'm not sure I still am; but I definitely was.) It consciously (*) started in 1989, with the single release of Sowing the Seeds of Love—and more precisely with the constant airing of its terrific video by the French TV channel MCM (new at this time). I won't go into much details now, but in no time, I was hooked.

(*) Actually, it subconsciously started in 1985, with my sister playing Shout and Everybody Wants to Rule the World in Repeat mode in her bedroom ;) !

Alas, the duet split soon thereafter, and I haven't had the opportunity to see them live… Until today :) !!! Indeed, I'm about to see both of them live, on the same stage, and IN MY OWN CITY!!! This is simply *A-MA-ZING*! So the date is saved 'cause on Tuesday, March 27, 2007, from 08:00 PM, if all goes well (gasp), I'm gonna tick another check box in my Dreams-to-do List ;) !

I can't wait…

Update: And of course, it was a blast, as Curt said on his blog:
We arrive in Marseilles around 6.30pm, just enough time for a quick shower and an early dinner with the family before we're back in the bus and on our way to the show.

The audience tonight were fantastic, all on their feet and joining in, it was fun.
