Doha rocks!

We may live in the desert where not much happens, but when it rains it pours. Last week I went and saw two outdoor concerts. James Blunt was on Valentine's Day and Cat Stevens a couple of days later.

J.Blunt played in a tiny stage set on the beach of the Intercon hotel. Tickets were 250 each, so not cheap but we were standing 10 metres aways from the guy!

There were booze kiosks dotted on the beach so the men especially appreciated that. I went with two girlfriends but was surprised to see so many men there. I guess since it was V Day, most either were forced to or thought it was a romantic gesture.

It was a great night out.

Taken on my camera phone so quality sucked.

The Cat Stevens concert was also outdoors but the stage was massive and there must have been close to 3,000 spectators. We bought tickets early so had really good seats, just 2 rows behind the VIPS.

He sang alot of new songs but kept the crowd happy with the oldies and at 60, the man still has it. Even the emir gave him a standing ovation at the end of the performance.

Rumour has it that Elton will be gracing the Doha scene within weeks. Fingers crossed.
