My first visit to the Royal Albert Hall was also my first chance (I hope it won't be my last) to see my favourite film and television composer Michael Giacchino. I first noticed Michael's work whilst watching Lost and have then followed him since. I had seen that he had done some Lost Concerts in Hawaii but as someone who doesn't particularly enjoy travelling on planes and boats, I thought I would probably never get to see him live. So when I saw he was going to be performing at The Royal Albert Hall I knew I had to go, and the fact that it was at a venue I had always wanted to go to, that was a lovely bonus. My wife very kindly bought us two tickets for an early Christmas present for me. As soon as we finished work on the Friday, my wife and I jumped in my car and drove from Coventry to London (through crazy London traffic).
The concert was everything I hoped it would be and more. Lovely venue, amazing music, amazing guests (JJ Abrahms, Carlton Cuse, Gareth Edwards, Benedcit Wong, Matt Reeves, Brad Bird, Gonzo! and more). I would love to see Michael live again, but if I don't, then I will always be happy with this amazing night.
Then, afterwards, we jumped back in the car and drove back to Coventry.
What a night!
