My fifth Travis concert...And although still briljant, there was something missing. I think that there was something wrong with some equipment, roadies worked on it during the concert. I think Chinese blues would be a much better opening than blue flashing light...
A Travis gig is always Party Party.. Today it went Party Party halfway.. No Flowers in the window, allas. And allas allas not my favourite last words.
But still a great gig...All I wanna do is rock and many others made it a great evening, with a great support act...The Alexandria Quartet.
Thank you Travis! My third concert (one was a shorter festival show) and again it was just awesome. though they seemed to have some equipment problems at the beginning, the live feeling was just as fantastic as before. of course i'd have liked to hear a few more songs (u 16 girls, chinese blues) but i still hope to hear them live once and blue flashing light and the ballad of j. smith were really cool surprises as well. i also think the new songs are very awesome live, especially before you were young and j. smith which had some extra power. travis live are even better than on cd! more emotions, more power. and they are always very nice. doug for expample always waves and grins at people. he even cheered and pointed to me when they left the stage.
unfortunately, i couldn't get to meet them afterwards. we waited for a while but then a security guard sent us away and shut the gates. quite the same as last year, but i might have some more luck next time, which i hope is soon.
funny: i would have suggested doug to sing one of his songs live and at hamburg i heard he did. so if you read it: keep on doing that!
