Playing for the Pope: June 24/09

On June 24th I played on the Fort William Gardens stage for the Pope before a crowd of a couple of thousand people: Pope John Paul II ...

...the school, that is. Along with the choir and some student instrumentalists (plus Noah Cain, the ringer bass player) for their Grade 8 grad ceremony.

My favourite part of this gig was the medley accompanying the slideshow, comprising "Be True to Your School", "Fun Fun Fun" and ... "School's Out"!!!

So to restate I have now played Alice Cooper for the Pope in a stadium concert!!

Noah tunes up.

That's my sound man.

The crowd.

I didn't actually get pix of the performance, plus I'm probably not really supposed to publish pix of the students themselves.
