That Helmet is mad. Like you say, really thought inducing about who the wearer was and what actually happened (apart from having a blade shoved I his head!).

Previously posted that i'm going to the PlayStation concert and I spotted thisabout it today...

Classic FM, the UK's specialist classical music radio station, is teaming up with PlayStation to bring to life an orchestral concert in celebration of video game music.

According to GamesIndustry.biz, the event, known as PlayStation in Concert, will feature music from across PlayStation's history, including PS1, PS2, PS3, and PS4 titles. Performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the City of London Choir, the concert is set to include music from the Uncharted series, The Last of Us, The Last Guardian, Horizon: Zero Dawn, LittleBigPlanet, and many more.

Jessica Curry, the Everybody's Gone to the Rapture composer, will host PlayStation in concert. She's one of the UK's most famed game composers, and presents a show on Classic FM entitled High Score, featuring the best orchestral game music.

Classic FM's Managing Director, Sam Jackson, is very excited about the concert, as well as the increased interest in classical music from young people: "The success of our two series of High Score, and the fact that over half a million under-25-year-olds now listen to Classic FM every week, is proof of a growing younger audience for classical music in the UK. We're really pleased to be partnering with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and PlayStation on this, the first event of its kind, which promises to be an exciting night of world-class music."

PlayStation in Concert takes place at the Royal Albert Hall on 30th May 2018

:| feck me £80 to renew a passport, still i'll save more than that flying down over the cost of a train.

Also decided not to bother taking my laptop down as i'm just there for two days to see the concert.

Do you need a passport for an internal flight now?

They use to take your driving licence photocard as proof of identity, but guess it might vary by airline.

A domestic flight you mean? Somewhere within the UK?

I've just asked the wife as she's had to do it a few times recently and she said a driving licence is fine.

Jeem probably has an old school paper license like my old man has :lol:

Got one of those lovely burgundy passports before the Brexit apocalypse next year anyway so win-win I’d say, the nasty new blue one gets you into 0 countries in Europe visa free 8)

It'd be cheaper than £80 to get a photo driving licence, even though they are lifed for 10 yrs too.

I can’t drive either, you can still get a provisional photo card license for £16 odd.

Ok

English pooonds : check.

Passport : check.

Tickets : check.

Laptop : nope.

I've decided as its just two days that I wont bother with a laptop, but I will take my camera (wonder if they stop me at the concert).

Tomorrow afternoon i'll just go to the Science museum or something, and on Wednesday morning maybe HMS Belfast haven't decided.

But Wednesday night I get to go to my first Orchestral concert and my first visit to the Albert Hall.

:!: ohh hope there a program to buy cause i'll never remember all the games featured.

Meh, small minds, small amusements.


London 2018

Tus.

:oops: bad start when the bus I was on to the airport got held up, first time I've ever been one of "those" last call fekkers.

Left blazing sunshine in Ayr to be met with torrential rain and lightning in London, stayed dry on the underground until I had just a 5 min walk to my Hotel....I got droukit.

The lass at the hotel took one look at me an said she would get my room ready early for me, so had an early lunch at the hotel restaurant.

:shock: 13 quid for a sandwich....6...6quid for a bottle of cider, but I was to wet to care.

:lol: one thing that did stand out was the lad serving me (Welsh by the accent) presented the cider like it was a bottle of wine, tipped him a tenner for making me laugh.


Hotel room.

Nice enough I suppose, but what is it with grubby carpets, every hotel is the same.

Image

Also the first time I've seen this system...

Image

They give you two keycards, one for the door and one to activate the room, kinda neat I thought.

Still soaked I contemplated some room service....

Image


:shock: a fiver for chips....feck off.


So squelched back out and hit a bakery I passed earlier....

Image
Image

:D ahh sugar the Late Lunch of Jeems.

Just stayed in and used the towel warmer to dry everything, vegged out and watched TV.....till a knock at the door...I answered to a maid and she said "Turn Down Sir ?"

:lol: it took a second but fortunately I have seen Dara O'Briain talk on this very thing : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipXfMJALwAg I said no thank you and on she went.

Wed.

Better start, with a nice enough view of Kensington Gardens...

Image

Went off to find the Albert hall for the concert...

Image
Image

Just across the road was the Albert Memorial.

Image
Image

Lovely work on the marbles, i'm guessing the four are supposed to represent the four corners of the Victorian British Empire.

Image


The Concert.

Image

At I guess i'd say the place was 90% full.

:? I assume these things are some sort of sound baffle...pretty though.

Image
Image

:| Have to say I thought that there was going to be a screen showing game footage to compliment the orchestra, but if i'm honest I spent most of the show with my eyes closed just listening.

Line up.

Image

The stand out moment has to have been Journey : Apotheosis : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QqNOrfoXWVc

:D Live it was just stunning.

Not listed but preformed as an Encore was an Uncharted montage :lol: that at least a dozen people missed as they had already left.

Overall a good night.


:| Would I spring for something like this again.....maybe but I would only want to make a one nighter of it as the guts of £300 for a concert is a lot.
