Red Hot Chili Peppers L G Arena Birmingham 20th November 2011

Sunday 20th November 2011.

Busy day today the day did not start of very good with a lot of worry as my 4 year old son who has type 1 diabetes was being sick from 6.30 am until gone 9am was very worrying as after he had eaten his breakfast he was sick and then I had to give my son his insulin which meant his blood levels would reduce further and he had been sick so had no food inside his stomach. I managed to stablise Harry I think it was the excitement the day before that it was his birthday party even though he had the correct insulin the day before he ran around a bit more than usual which might have made the insulin work faster so on Sunday morning once he had his insulin and gave my beautiful brave boy a bath he was feeling better. I decided earlier on in the day that if he was still being sick that I would cancell driving to LG arena in Birmingham to photograph the Red Hot Chili Peppers as well even though I would really hate to miss photographing them I could not leave my boy.

Luckily my son gradually improved and so by 5pm I was ready to go to birmingham.Got to the arena for 7.30pm there was a great atmosphere and alot of people had gone to the gig from Wales. Recognised a few other photographers that had travelled to Wales to photograph at a U2 gig a few years back that I was at was good to catch up.

20.30 go escorted to the stage by security. Red Hot Chili Peppers on at 8.45pm.

3 Songs and then it is time for me to just watch them for a few minutes buy a t-shirt and wrist band and then head back to Wales as have a deadline for me to submit my photos by.

Upload and send photos.
