Bluebirds Flying High - Official Launch Night
By Michael Morris
Updated Wednesday, 30th April 2008
James Fox played a 'secret' gig at Cardiff's Hard Rock Cafe this evening, in front of an audience of competition winners from the South Wales Echo, Real Radio, the official Cardiff City website and the Facebook Group.
Also in attendance were Peter Ridsdale, Peter Enkleman and a large press contingent - all taking photos, videos and interviews. I think we can expect the campaign to get the single to number one to gain even greater coverage over the next few days.
Chatting to James and the Cardiff City media team afterwards, everyone is really pleased with the exposure they are getting in the local media. The Echo has given the song 'Campaign Status', which basically means they have a reporter assigned to them almost full time. They've been touring local schools this week and next week signings have been arranged at HMV in Queen Street on Bank Holiday Monday and Wednesday afternoon. I don't think it's really sunk in yet, but there really is every chance that Bluebirds Flying High will be at number one by the time City play at Wembley.
You can pre-order the single now for just £2.99 at HMV online. The single is also now listed on Zavvi and Amazon and will also be available on iTunes for download from May 5th.
Loads of photos and videos from the evening have now been posted to the Bluebirds Flying High Facebook Group, which now has over 2,100 members:
More videos will also be posted shortly on YouTube:
