Went to see Il Divo last night. Cried like a baby. Did not give a monkey’s.
On another note, they are a lovely example of something I truly believe in. The audience in last night’s not-far-from-sold-out arena ranged from great-grandparents to young children - one little girl of probably no more than five danced with her glow stick through every song and Sebastian pointed her out to the cameras and applauded her.
Music and language are some of the greatest gifts afforded us as sentient beings. They are truly uniting in the passion they evoke in all of us, and that is something which for me cannot be celebrated enough.
