Hi Shirley, thank you for this exclusive interview especially about the CowBoys and Angels concert . First of all, I know that you wanted to make things clear and true about it. Tabloids did write false informations again ...
I understand that it is not an official event, what can you say about it ?
How and when came the idea of doing this special evening show with George's band ?
I wanted to get together with all the band because we hadn't had any chance to see each other since GM passed away.
So i was going to hire a venue for us and our families to come together for a night to remember our boss and friend. I was just going to hire some instruments incase we felt like playing some of GM's beautiful songs , then a friend of mine who is a booking agent said ' what a lovely idea but why not do it in a bigger music venue and share the evening with GM fans as well. Thats when i contacted GM's sisters to ask if they would mind if I put this show on for the fans. They very kindly are allowing us to go ahead with the show but want to be very clear that the evening is not an official event and is not supported by the estate however, We will be giving 10% of all ticket sales to childlike in GM's name.
What can lovelies expect ? Can you give a few (exclusive) details ? :)
Yes , All songs will be performed by , what we have become known as , The GM singers , No guest singers have been invited. We will try to recreate the MTV unplugged type show and will play songs throughout GM's career. George was an incredible songwriter and we want to play his music the way we know he would want us to.
4- Please share with us one of your precious memories of George
There were so many memories with him but one precious moment was at the Olympics rehearsal when we spent some time talking about our Mothers as my Mum had not long passed away , he had words of comfort and wisdom that helped me a lot.
5- Have you got a message for the Lovelies ?
Yes, I want to thank them for showing their support for the band and we will do our best to make an evening full of memories that we can all treasure. There are a few tickets still available so I hope everyone who wants to come gets their place;-)
Love and thanks
