Resident Gets Surprise Off Her Favourite Band
Welsh rock band Those Damn Crows took time out of their recent tour to do something special for a tenant of the Trust.
Amii (pictured) is a huge fan of the band and had previously seen them supporting the million-selling US band The Goo Dolls (famed for their song “Iris,” featured in the 1998 film City Of Angels starring Nicholas Cage and Meg Ryan) over the summer. She was left disappointed, however, when she was unable to secure a ticket for a show on the sold-out tour that the Bridgend-based outfit had played last month.
However, when the kind-hearted Crows – whose most recent album “Inhale/Exhale” landed at number three on the UK album charts – heard that one of their biggest fans couldn’t see them on stage, they decided to do something special for her. They signed the official setlist that was used by singer Shane Greenhall at their gig at London’s famed 2300-capacity Kentish Town Forum in October.
Amii (who is holding the unique memento above) was thrilled by the gesture and vowed to “treasure it.”
Amii’s trip to the concert back in June was just one of many outings the residents of Lisieux Trust have undertaken this year. Shows such as The Lion King, Calendar Girls, and The Full Monty, as well as Premier League and WSL games, WWE wrestling, and many more, have all been attended. It is a vital part of the Trust ethos to ensure that the residents and tenants get to enjoy as much of what they love as possible.
