What a sad week for the entertainment industry, losing two extraordinary talents within days of each other. It is tragic to think the world will never again put on their red shoes and dance at a Bowie concert or marvel as he unveils another incarnation of his genius; it is wretched that audiences will never again witness Alan Rickman grace a stage, quiver at his impossible, wickedly sinful voice that melts like chocolate, or cheer as he steals yet another movie scene. I doff my cap to these two supreme entertainers and give a belated sign of the horns heavy metal salute to Lemmy from Motorhead who took his final bow in December. In keeping with the showbiz mantra, the show must go on, let’s have entertainment as this week’s theme. First up, an impromptu cello performance along the High Line in Manhattan.
A fire-eater getting the crowds going in Antigua‘s Central Park.
A bevvy of lovely dancers celebrating Chinese New Year in Dublin with a traditional Royal Dance.
It’s a tough job clowning around at Seattle’s Pike Place Market.
Playing the piano as you bike along the streets of Edinburgh, now that’s what I call multi-tasking!
