A decade has passed since the last time

I know it’s not just me because a popular discussion topic is how fast time seems to be going. Would anyone have guessed that our last tour of Poland was nearly ten years ago in December 2012 with the symphony orchestra? Combine that fact with the recent hiatus in entertainment, or even in leaving our own houses, and it’s clear to see why last night’s audience at Tauron Arena were so keen to get singing with Smokie again. The punters, eager to get to the edge of the stage, gradually took up position for the final dash, leaving security guards helpless to do anything other than let it happen and just enjoy the music and the atmosphere. The sizeable audience behaved impeccably, polite and considerate as always, and the show ended on an enormous high that left everyone feeling elated. Sometimes we just don’t want things to end, and last night was one of those nights. My guess is that it won’t be another ten years before we come back here.
