Mike Masse and Jeff Hall were returning to the UK for a one-night show on Friday 29 June so we decided we would extend the weekend and also find a musical to see. The Masse/Hall concert was very good and was held at "Under the Bridge" (Chelsea Stadium). We met at the local Pizza Express before the performance. Fortunately the venue was only a walk-away from where we were staying. Saturday we had breakfast al fresco (pancakes and strawberries and blueberries with maple syrup and coffee mascarpone) at a local eatery before using our bus passes and travelling into the city centre. We hunted down Leadenhall Market - recommended to us, and I must admit it was historically a lovely place, but there is little of it left as many gigantic structures overpower it in the business quarter. We had lunch at Wetherspoons and then made our way to the Aldwych to see "Tina". It was rather expensive but worth it - a fantastic musical giving the story of the awful life Tina Turner had as a child and early in her adult life with Ike. The temperature in the city was overwhelming and we eventually got back to our accommodation to rest and freshen up before walking down to Cote Brasserie for a meal al fresco again. We returned home on Sunday via the Cotswolds (don't like motorways).
