“Oooh, what a great aeroplane. This A380 First Suite is awesome,” said Martin. “It’s like a huge private jet with lots of passengers. I’ll go to sleep now so that I can start working once we reach London,” he added with a big smile. About 21 hours later, the plane landed safely at the London’s Heathrow Airport. It was a great flight and everybody had a good rest after their adventure on the way to the Melbourne Airport. “I’ll go and discuss about our show at the Royal Albert Hall with the press,” said Martin and he added, “Paul, I’ll take the tube to London and I’ll meet you at your house later,”
Paul drove his friends to his home where his old Uncle Jack was waiting for them. Uncle Jack was their band manager and he had been working on their latest concert as soon as he received Paul’s call from Australia. “I’d say that the best date for the concert should be on the 2nd of July, perhaps,” said Paul’s uncle looking at his diary. “I had a meeting with my old friend who is the manager of the Royal Albert Hall and he suggested the date,” he added. “Then we only have about 2 months to go,”said Paul. He called Martin, “Marty, the concert will be on the 2nd of July at 21:00”.
After his meetings, Martin met them at Paul’s house. “Pretty cosy in here, Paul,” said Martin. “I’ve always like your home. It is really comfortable, with soft sofas and tasty hot drinks”. It was a very beautiful house indeed, and it is not far from London.
The next day they were very busy getting ready for the concert. Paul took out his purple glittering trousers with a matching jacket and a white shirt. Martin pulled out his blue shirt with white sleeves while Eve put out her long and glittering pink dress from her bag. Lin took out her beautiful red dress carefully out her bag while Peter searched for his shining black jacket and black trousers from his bag. They put on their clothes and started practicing. They practiced very hard and wanted to give their best for the concert.
A few days before the concert, the Caltex petrol station cashier arrived safely in England. Paul invited him to his house and to watch their rehearsals. He also invited his old friends, Jalil and Kamal to the concert. They arrived in London after a 10 hours flight from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
A day before the concert, they went to Gordon Ramsay restaurant for a tasty breakfast and off they went to the Royal Albert Hall for their rehearsals. There were fans waiting for them outside the hall and they were very happy to see them. The tickets were already sold out and lots of their fans were sad because there was no more tickets left.
Everybody was very excited about the concert, especially their special guest, the Caltex petrol station cashier from Australia. He sat happily at the VIP seats together with Jalil and Kamal. The Astolf Band’s fans were very excited to see Paul Tonnel, Martin Flangs, Eve Sara, Lin Bastain and Peter Hard singing together again in their glittering, colourful and shining shirts, jackets and dresses. They sang and sang, danced and danced happily as they used to do years before. The crowds were cheering, “More, more!” every time they finished their songs. The fans were all shouting loudly with excitement and Paul’s uncle kept saying, “Bravo! Bravo!” until the end of the concert. It was a marvelous night!Some of their fans even fainted because they were too excited watching the band on stage!
The Caltex petrol station cashier was so proud and happy to be able to watch the concert, he was a good man who liked to help others and never thought to be able to watch a concert by the Astolf Band in London. Paul Tonnel, Martin Flangs, Eve Sara, Lin Bastain and Peter Hard were good friends and they were always nice to their fans and everybody they met. They were very happy to sing together and to see their fans again.
