RAH Rocked!

Postby Gareth » 25 Mar 2010, 02:04

Wow what a night! Was a bit worried as the hall took ages to fill up but fill up it did and it turned out to be an absolute stormer. The band really looked like they'd never been away - everyone was on top form, Brett's voice was excellent throughout. Must single out Richard though, without taking anything away from the many great previous performances I'd seen he's managed to rise to a whole new level.

Setlist was very similar to Manchester, relentless first 45 minutes or so with only Pantomime Horse and Everything Will Flow giving the standees at the front a bit of breather. Even The Two of Us had been rocked up slightly for the encores. For me it was reminiscent of my first Suede experience at Leeds on the Coming Up tour in 96.

Anyway a great night and good to see some familiar faces. Still a big question mark over what, if anything, happens next. Brett again made that remark about doing it again in another seven years, but personally I'm hoping that the standing ovation the band received prior to Wild Ones might convince them not to leave it so long...

omg - yeah Brett looked truly amazed and overwhelmed during the standing ovation during the middle of the set as he looked up and all around the hall at everyone - that was a great moment and of course he couldn't help himself after it had eneded to add a bit of humour when he quipped "we haven't finished yet..!!!!" :D :D :D Mat had the biggest grin on his face during that ovation and they looked genuinely shocked at all the 'love in the room'!!!!! :D :D :D

thanx for that gareth - will add rest of my thoughts to sun's post...!!!!

Couldn't agree more with you Gareth. Richard was the true star of the evening, what playing! Brett had to work very hard to beat him.
