But strangely he didn’t wear tails…

Back now from watching Bill Bailey playing with an orchestra.  He clearly was enjoying performing in the Albert Hall and I don’t think anyone was surprised when he took the opportunity to have a go on it’s huge organ <ahem>.  The show was a nice mix between some of his old songs and new material exploring how some instruments are commonly used.  I never knew that bassoon players are all secret Bee-Gee’s fans for example.

The second half is probably the stronger of the two, and features a strong contribution by the internet’s instrument of choice, the cowbell, in a performance reminiscent of Morecambe and Wise at their best.  Watching Bill putting the excellent BBC Concert orchestra through their paces in a nail-biting cop-drama too is strangly mesmerising.  If he’s performing anywhere near you it’s well worth catching.
