I saw Michael Ball for the first time in Nottingham last night. I was with a friend who unexpectedly had a spare ticket .....on the front row. I had THE MOST WONDERFUL EVENING - he reduced me to tears (almost sobs!!) with his tender version of 'I will always love you' and I fell in love when he momentarily fixed me with his beautiful blue eyes. Electric. This guy is so loved by his audience whatever their age and most of them would just want Michael to be happy with his life whatever he chooses to do. I would guess that most, like me, are captivated by the voice and give little thought to his sexuality. Who cares? It is of no consequence at all. He needs only to know that he is loved and he brings great joy to so many people.
I remember the first time I saw him, that was back in the early 90s, couldn't wait to go again, used to go at least twice to every tour! Went last year but gave this tour a miss as wasn't keen on the latest album, wish had a ticket now!
