I see London, I see Sam’s Town
My sister lives in London since five years back in time, and over the years I’ve been a frequent visitor. Coming from Hong Kong, the first thing that hit you is the vast majority of creativity and history; everywhere you look is something exciting to explore. London is to me the ultimate melting pot of cultures and lifestyles; where commerce and art succeeded to live in (relative) harmony with one another. More than anything, Londoners value the creative flair of its city, which is a refreshening contrast against Hong Kong. This time, my mom and I headed over for the purpose of Music. For THE KILLERS Battleborn concert to be precise. I’ve not mentioned that my family are major music fanatics, and I may be the only one the have been spared from the curse of playing music on the highest volume. In fact, my Mom is a serious Killers fan also known as The Victims. Ask me anything about their lyrics, band-members (mainly Brandon Flowers) or Las Vegas, and I promise that I know the answer to it. The concert was held Wembley and even myself – who is a moderate fan – became a victim of the spell of Brandon Flowers voice. The concert was in short simply amazing; Brandon’s voice and the music was much better live than the recordings; everyone was dancing, jumping and singing along. The Killers had written a special song attributed to London “Wembley song”, which made the public scream of joy. It was an experience I late will forget. My Mom is already dreaming about seeing the next concert in Las Vegas and as she had severe PGD (Post Gig Depression – apparently a common state among the fans after the concerts), I’m sure there will be more Killers concerts in the future. Our London visit was short this time; we only had time for the concert and the essential visit to my favorite Scones and Clotted cream place. I know I’ll be back soon though. In the meantime, I see London, I see Sam’s Town is pouring out of my headphones.
