Some days you want your cake and to eat it too (although : if you're getting a cake and NOT eating it, then what's the point?) . But there are other days when you get ambitious and want TWO cakes and to eat both.... and today was one of those days.
Bottom line : there was a premiere in one part of London (Mayfair) around 6:15pm, and there was a Hans Zimmer concert at 8pm in another part of London (Wembley) which I had tickets for. AND I had to stow my photography gear back at the office before I went there (not close to either Mayfair or Wembley) AND it was raining. So... two tube rides (5mins, 20mins), plus waiting time, plus 4x 10(ish) minutes walking time. How long could I stay? You do the maths!
Here's how it went down:
But I couldn't stay any longer. I zipped off to Bond Street, across to Tottenham Court Road, off to the office, then up to Euston Road and Wembley. Didn't find out about Gal Gadot until I got back home after midnight....
Whatever. It's still a premiere and I went and that's good enough for The Archive of Movie Premieres, and there are several premieres next week I'm not double booked for (yet) because Gal Gadot hasn't called me (yet).
The Hans Zimmer concert was AWESOME. Buy tickets and buy soundtracks - film scores and film scorers don't get enough love! (Even when they can sell out Wembley Arena twice in two days...)
Until next time!
