To London to Visit the Queen

After a restful day on Tuesday for Del, Al had made her way back to Derwent6 managing to get back in daylight...  but tomorrow, another hectic day was ahead..
We were up early as we had another train to get. We caught the 10.30am train down to London and met up with Bernie and Erica at Victoria station.
From there we went over to Covent Garden where we used our Taste Card in Fire and Stone where we all had lovely pizza's for half price..
Del and Bernie then went in the pub while Al and Erica did some window shopping and we met up again at Tottenham Court road. From there we got the tube to Shepherd Bush and we went into O'Neill's for another couple of pints.. here we were joined by Steve and then we all got in the queue for The Queen Extravaganza, a Queen tribute band picked by the Queen band themselves..
They came on at 8.45pm and started with We will Rock you (we can hear you stamping your feet)
The lead vocalist was just brilliant and sounded just like Freddie in fact when he sung Somebody to Love you couldn't tell the difference when you shut your eyes..
We were sitting close to the real drummer in Queen, Roger Taylor, checking to see if they were getting it right...
So if you ever get the chance to see them you won't be disappointed, you can see them on YouTube. We were clock watching a bit at the end as the last train back to Derwent6 was at 11.30pm but we belted out and made it in good time in the end.. we all had a fantastic time.. and got back to Derwent6 at 1.45am, knackered!

We went to the same Fire and Stone with Adam and Adrian a couple of weeks ago! Hope all is well with you both x

Hi both, love Fire & Stone. Was a bit worried after the Oxford one was closed last time we were there, but good to see still going strong in London x (and great value with the taste card!)
