This really was a once in a lifetime opportunity for SuperBreak’s Carole. Read on to find out about her night at The O2 with David Essex, The Osmonds plus many more…


The music starts, the lights went down, the droning sound of bagpipes echoed around the auditorium, the audience started screaming with excitement and out of the mist on the stage appeared the amazing Bay City Rollers. Les McKeown wearing the same outfit he wore in 1974, burst into song with a medley of top hits which everyone new the words to and sang along. Their voices exactly as they were all those years ago, a pleasure to listen too.

The next act was the energetic and entertaining Showaddywaddy, they were lively, exciting and had the audience leaping with joy. Their bright “teddy boy” jackets, drain pipe jeans and beetle crusher footwear was a great flashback – what memories! Their Rock ‘n’ Roll songs in perfect tone, once again had their fans joining in word perfect to many of their top hits.

On a quieter note, David Essex appeared with his band, romancing the crowd with his slow smoochy hits. He treated his guests to his remix of “Oh What a Circus”, which was much more up tempo than the original version, this was from The West End Show, “Evita” in which he played Che.

The nights grand finale was The Osmonds, they blew the audiences minds away. The brothers sang in perfect harmony, with strong powerful voices, like nightingales. In the background were videos of their 70s & 80s tours, plus personal family photographs which were in sync with their songs. Girls were shouting proposals of marriage and screaming every time Donny’s image appeared. Songs such as, Crazy Horses, Love Me for a Reason, Let Me In and many more of their number one hits blasted out, overwhelming the awestruck fans. They asked for song requests and sang them. They were very entertaining, with their brotherly competitive sense of humour and banter.

Final verdict… thoroughly entertaining evening at The O2, leaving you filled with joy and happy memories!
