I spent last night in the company of my lovely husband, this man and thousands of other music fans against the picturesque background of Hanging Rock in country Victoria.
It was the last night of Bruce Springsteen's tour of Australia and let me tell you - he rocks! He's dynamic, energetic and boy did he put on a great show - a bit over three hours of Bruce singing, dancing and giving everything he's got (which is a lot).
My bloke and I have been fans for years so this was a dream come true; we couldn't quite believe we were seeing and hearing the Boss in real life (although for most of the time he was just this little figure on stage, with big screens bringing the show closer to the audience. Can you see him in the bottom right corner of this photo?)

Springsteen and the E Street Band were supported by the Rubens (a young band, hadn't heard of them before, they were great) and Jimmy Barnes (very loud and oh so good too). Adding to the atmosphere were the kangaroos , which were racing around as we made our way through the reserve to our seats, the starry night and Hanging Rock, which was intermittently lit up by the stage lights. What a great night out!
