Those 2 days stolen from eternity
....It finally came out today. I think we just stole 2 days from eternity.
The two concerts in Taormina, Sicily were absolutely amazing as described by others above. When I viewed the venue that they would be playing I knew I had to go. It was to unique to pass up. How could it be anything less than amazing?. I managed to get 5 days of work covered at the last minute and off I went from Canada to Germany then finally landing in a small airport in Sicily.
My mother passed away in March of this year after 3 years of struggling with terminal cancer. These concerts were great therapy for me after a few very rough months. I was hoping to hear Ed sing Long Road and sure enough as luck would have it; it was the opening song of night 1. With that emotional moment out of the way I was set to enjoy the rest of the show.The beauty of old world Sicily combined with adventure and music filled my heart. The intimacy of the setting was the best. It was a great atmosphere. I also left a fan of glen's and am looking forward to discovering more of his music. My favourite moments were Ed and Glen singing falling slowly and the shooting stars overhead. Overall a beautiful experience that I will never forget.
