But what a gig. Tremendous. Flipping Insanely outstanding.

Highlight of the year I reckon.

Right, somehow I've got to put into words what I witnessed last night so please bear with me as a writer I ain't.

I reckon there was 80 - 100 there for the start of her set, more drifted in and stayed as the end of the tour party was happening afterwards.

As Patti walked onto the stage a few feet away it was kinda like seeing an old friend again but when she burst into Queens "Don't Stop Me Now" every thought just left your head to be replaced by "Damn she can sing", I know we already knew that but when she's inches away from you you really get an understanding of just how amazing her voice is. It takes about three seconds before you're away with her singing along, her stage presence and personality is infectious and you're along for the ride. Stories mingle with songs, interactions with the audience ride alongside pisstaking between the band and you've no choice but to really admit that this lady is as near as damn it perfect. I've remembered the jokes and forgotten the Italian swearing which is somewhat arse about face as the swearing was brilliant and a stand up career does not await Patti lol.

A few highlights, by no means all of them

Black Velvet - I love this song, blown four sets of speakers to it but never heard it like that, bloody amazing. Bible and a Beer - Probably the best known of her songs was sung to perfection, loved the story behind her bible copy (Are You Thirsty? - see pick below). One Door Opens - nearly had me in tears, the emotion Patti puts into this is mind blowing, ditto for Here We Are. Dead Ringer, brilliant, loved the Cher impression!!!!! And John Partridge came on stage, him and Patti just seemed to bounce off each other, excellent!!!! (And he phoned my babysitter afterwards).

It was over way too quickly but I'm taking so much away with from this show that the memories will stay with me for a long time, my biggest fear is that I'll not see her perform a show like this again because it truly was awesome. It has to be said that more than anything last night just reinforced my opinion of how much I will miss this lady if I see Meat perform again, irreplaceable.

A few pics..................

("Borrowed") Bible and a Beer

Perhaps Spike would consider having Patti as a permanent (and only) front woman for the SAS band. I don't see how you can top Patti in stage presence and singing ability. Competition closed. Star found in my opinion.

I heard several fans say Patti would be a brilliant opening act for the upcoming Queen tour.

She was magnificent! Monstro said it perfectly.

For me that would be like Keane supporting Travis in 2004 (which I saw). The support act is more interesting than the main one. If anything Patti should be on stage with Queen instead of Adam Lambert or Paul Rodgers in my opinion. But I'd still prefer just seeing her own 2 hour show and leave Queen itself in the history bag. I never understood why Brian May just didn't keep going on Solo, he was excellent when I saw him in 1998 (with Jamie Moses btw). That Kerri Ellis carry on doesn't seem very fitting but what the hell do I know.

Queen with Patti as lead vocalist would have been an absolutely amazing tour. Patti as opening act for Queen or any big selling artist would be a good way to get Patti's music out there for the massess.

I actually really regret not buying one.

I never really go for merch / t shirts but the 3 shows I went to really were some of the most memorable I've seen, especially after knowing how much effort and dedication Patti put into the shows in the light of uncertainty.

I wish I could do something to help her solo career sky rocket. I guess the only thing I can hope for is someone with some serious cash does the right thing here soon.

Hopefully the EPs and t-shirts will soon be available to buy through a website (or the songs on iTunes).

Default What are the chances

Today is my Birthday. So I had a few drinks after work and then went to Pizza Express with the girlfriend - and guess who is sitting on the table next to me. right there in Shepherds Bush Pizza Express was Patti Russo - I'm not one to usually approach people but this time I felt i had too - I waited until she had finished her meal and said a quick hello, she was lovely, She couldn't believe I knew who she was and even thought that the people she was with had set something up- she even briefly sang me happy Birthday- What a special moment for me. Magical. I wont go into the details of the little chat we had but i wish her all the luck, I get the feeling we wont see her on stage with Meat again which makes me sad indeed (i told her that) but you can never say never. She's so extremely talented and deserves all the success in the world.
