A sour note

I went along to the Barry Manilow concert that was held at the O2 on Wednesday night in what was a Christmas present for two at a substantial cost, and we were so disappointed that we left after one hour.

It was quite oblivious that his voice was not what it was and he has not got the energy he once had. Why do these concert promoters insist on putting on these has-beens?

We had the same experience with Pavarotti a few years ago.
