Esplanade Theatre Staff Forms Two Lines for Jamie Cullen Autograph Signing (Ire)

Uploaded from Telegraph

There were two flashing red indicators that even though I had dutifully bought a Jamie Cullum CD and lined up in order for that same CD to be signed, there was a possibility that I would not have it autographed after The Pursuit Tour concert on 13 April 2010 at the Concert Hall.

First, the Esplanade Theatre staff had allowed a fork to form with what should have been a single line. Unfortunately, I was in one of the branches of that fork.

Second, a gentleman, presumably the manager of Jamie Cullum, agitatedly and repeatedly said, “No!” to a member of the ushering staff when he saw the long lines.

When the line started moving, the other branch was allowed to go first, so that even though some of its members had arrived later than I did, they “cut” in front of me. And, as the fates would have it, the manager came back and told the ushering staff to stop the line with me.

I comforted myself with the fact that the hands of Jamie Cullum, which had produced magic with piano keys and had orchestrated a wonderful night, need not be bothered with signing my CD.
