Good show, not the best but seated gigs always ruin the vibe, imho. Happy to hear Beautiful Occupation. Love that song but doubt it will get played much, if at all, in the States. So glad I made it up North!
It was such a joy to get to see my favourite band in concert (from the third row)!! I am still suffering from Travis-withdrawal as I'm writing this:( It was my first time seeing them live and I think it was unforgettable. I hope they come back to Vancouver really soon (and play Big Chair). I stayed behind for an hour and a half and met Fran, Dougie, and Andy; unfortunately I was tongue-tied but at least I got a few pictures and autographs! I love Dougie's smile!!
My 8 yr old daughter (likely the youngest audience member) came with me and just adored the mega-hits but sat down for brief moments during the songs she was less familiar with. Understandable...
I've been to so many rock shows but this one seemed so engaging and, well, HUMAN. Great group of guys playing music that, unfortunately, too few of us North Americans have had a chance to love. On the flip side, a chance to see one of my all time fav bands play without them appearing like wee ants on a wee stage with horrible ice arena acoustic properties.
> The bombastic, pugilistic entrance
> Set list containing most of my favs (I have a lot, eh...)
> The truly unplugged "20" (cheers, Fran, for reminding us that musicians do not always need massive overhead P.A. clusters in order to communicate to the audience)
> Fran's chats with the audience (incl. the shout out his mum's old friend, Dot)
> Andy's mic stand holding the mic at about 3.5' high
> The classic Orange amp and cab
> Dougie's grinning
> Solid drumming by Neil
> "Klaus! Klaus! Klaus!" (ad infinitum)
Please come back soon! I will bring my 5 yr old next time - he'll be a fan by them!
