RE: My Most Recent Concert
Nick Cave last night at Nottingham Arena. I was a little apprehensive over what to expect when the delicate "Skeleton Tree" hit the soul-less concrete mass that is Nottingham's Arena but needn't have worried - Nick Cave turned it into an intimate club!

Emotionally draining but wouldn't have missed it for the world!

RE: My Most Recent Concert
Tori Amos at the Philharmonie in Munich on Saturday, September 30th, 2017.

Support Act Bell X1 from Ireland. They made a very good impression on me.

Tori played about 1:35 hour. Just her with piano and keyboards. She played some tracks from her new album but most songs from the set were from her older recordings. One of her better concerts i visited.

Nick Cave at the 02, but the stars of the show were The Bad Seeds. Well-seasoned,talented musicians who masterfully wove sonic textures that went from pin-drop to apocalypse.
Anyone looking to equate listening at home to a live concert like that seriously needs their head examining.

Sondek, Hammond, Leslie, Rhodes and Moog.

Couldn't agree more - with both your observations - the Bad Seeds were exceptional in Nottingham too.

You haven't gone out and added "Korg" to your sig yet?!!! That little beast was being used to produce some amazing layers of sound.

Gary Numan at the O2 Academy in Leeds. Played quite a few songs from his new Savage album which sounded great - Numan's best album since Telekon in my opinion.

Guano Apes at the Backstage in Munich on Sunday, October 8th, 2017.

Played most of their Debut Album 'Proud like Gods' from 1997. Sandra Nasić still has an incredible voice. Even live on stage.

RE: My Most Recent Concert
Sigur Rós at the Palladium in Cologne on October 13th, 2017. Wonderful concert at a really nice venue. For sure one of the best and most impressive concerts I ever visited.

They played two 1 hour sets separated by a 25 minute intermission. Extraordinary clear and crisp sound from Jónsi's voice and the instruments played.

Set 1:
  • Á
  • Ekki Múkk
  • Glósóli
  • [E-Bow]
  • [Dauðalagið]
  • Fljótavík
  • Niður
  • Varða

Set 2:
  • Óveður
  • Sæglópur
  • Ný Batterí
  • [Vaka]
  • Festival
  • Kveikur
  • [Popplagið]

Unbelievable dynamic range from the quieter to the louder parts of the music. When they are playing loud they can take it up with any Heavy Metal band out there. The sound from the bowed guitar is simply insane. Everything garnished with some excellent video footage and animations.

RE: My Most Recent Concert
London Grammar. Tonight Smile

Hannah's voice was stellar - I've seen a few live gigs on TV where she's struggled with pitch due to monitor issues, but tonight she walked on stage, started to sing un accompanied until the guys joined in an her voice was amazing from start to finish.

I hope, if they ever do any covers, that she'll sing Great Gig In The Sky one day.

Good support band too - Lo Moon.
