My wife said Mike doesn't do much in this concert. She had the same harsh comments about Gimli the Dwarf of the Fellowship of the Ring. I think one of the X-Men was similarly criticized too. Well...

Orchestra and Choir were spot on, the woodwind section seemed to have a time delay as we were stood behind a pillar with restricted view. Mikes classical guitar was quite drowned out by the orchestra, but the mixer unit outside took care of that. There is a mention it could be released on i tunes or available from digital retailers, but the bum note towards the end will also need to be edited out. On completion of the concert Mike hastily packed his guitar waved at the crowd and left for bilbao sondika airport in a crazed rush!!! :/

In reply timshen the bum note was by Mike, it reminded me of the last one I can recall at the Millennium Concert when Mike was startled by a firework, on that occassion the conductor took his ear piece out, and glared at Mike... quite funny as i recall!!!!
