If you follow me on Twitter, you may have noticed that I have been harping on about going to see The Overtones. You probably also wondered who they were, as they are fairly new. I bought their album in November and have been hooked ever since. They were the support act for Peter Andre, and as much as I wanted to see them, I didn’t feel the need to see Peter Andre.
So, when they announced they were doing their own tour, I was very excited and got my tickets ASAP. The gig was last night, and I went with my friend Amanda.
We were waiting for ages for them to come on, but it was so worth it when they finally did. They just seem like genuinely nice guys who just wanted to make sure the crowd were having a good time.
They called a couple up onto stage, and the guy ended up proposing to his girlfriend.
Later on in the show, they actually asked for me by name, and dedicated a song (a cover of Rihanna’s Only Girl in the World) to me. As Lachie said “We know you’ve had a bit of a tough year, so this one is for you!” Well, I just started shaking and was so pleased that they did that for me. We overheard the teenage girls stood next to us saying “Oh, I wish that was me!” I think I was the most envied girl in the room.
Once the gig was over, Amanda and I hung round with some others, and the lads came out and we got to meet them. When it was my turn, they actually recognised me and said “Hi Roz” and gave me hugs and kisses. I was so starstruck and swooning over them. They all asked after my health and again, they just seemed like genuinely nice guys.
To say it made my night is putting it mildly. I was a bit hyper afterwards to say the least.
If you haven’t already bought their album, then you should – now!
And boys? Thank you for a wonderful night x
