Helloooo Wembley!

So it was time for our second Rock Choir performance of the week .... at WEMBLEY STADIUM! I've been soooo excited about this event - serious goosebumps! We were part of the pre-match entertainment, along with McFly, for the Saracens V Harlequins rugby match.


We arrived at 10.30am for the preparations for our 2.20pm appearance on the hallowed turf of Wembley. 1400 Rockies were taking part, many like me from the Hertfordshire Rock Choirs (I'm in Watford Rock Choir) so it required military like organisation.


Here's some of my lovely fellow Rockies on our walk up to the stadium on Saturday.


And here we all are huddled in the bowels of the Stadium waiting for McFly to finish their sound check. There was lots of hanging around - show business isn't all glamour you know!!



By the time we walked through the tunnel on to the pitch for our own sound check we were pretty damn excited as you can see from the video I took!

Finally it was for us to perform to the crowd. Though many spectators were still making their way to the stadium it was still an awesome experience walking out on to the pitch!



Literally minutes before we walked through the tunnel we were informed that the Stadium had insisted we would have to curb our usual nifty footwork for fear of damaging the turf before the game! Despite this it made for quite a spectacle.




It was a brilliant and memorable day. Not everybody can say they sang at Wembley can they?!
