A good night was had by all those who attended the live concert at the Littleport Showground.
Local DJ Tim Lee, as smooth as ever, held the ear of the audience between tribute bands while the Feathers School of Dance performed some eye-catching dance moves both on and in front of the stage, entertaining and pleasing the many parents and audience alike.
Of the tributes, 'Mark Knopfler' was the first to perform, and perform he did. His guitar playing was unmistakably true to the Knopfler style and many comments of praise were attributed to this opening act.
Knopfler had set the scene and the standard he had set was high; then out came local group Blurred Vision with a performance that left most of the audience considerably privileged to have been there.
The hour-long array of hits from the last 20 years and the up-to-date cover tracks were of a quality that should not have been missed. Let's hope Blurred Vision come back for another year.
Two hard acts to follow didn't faze either 'Tina Turner' or 'Status Quo' and the audience were left in do doubt that the evening was better than any one had ever imagined or expected; the mass were treated to classic hit after hit from both Ms Turner and 'Status Quo' both performing an incredible and believable tribute, not only to their idols but very much to their look-a-likes.
Fake-That were the last act on stage and they held the hearts of the many younger members of the audience as well as many of the not so younger.
Those that had not been dancing the night away suddenly found their feet and joined the mass in front of the stage to rock and sway with the many magical songs made popular by the young group of five; including some truly entertaining solos by their very own 'Robbie Williams'.
Mark Kerridge, the Littleport Show vice-chairman, thanked everyone for attending and supporting the Highfield Open Air Evening. He thanked the many sponsors of the evening of which the show would not have happened without and he thanked J H Martin and Sons for their continued support of the event by allowing their grounds as the venue.
Next year we will be back with another Highfield Open Air Concert on July 28. This will take place one week after the Littleport Show, which returns next year on July 21.
