Hopefully they've got nothing to do with Manchester United.
Nope, nothing at all! They're a Midlands band who do unusual covers.- ones you don't hear bands do very often if at all. Things such as Mr Blue Sky, I am the Walrus, Tears for Fears, all sorts of genres. We were treated to Comfortably Numb too last night!
They were absolutely fantastic. All for charity too. They even had a young comedian on at half time who also played the guitar!
I can honestly say I've never been to such a fun, party night at the Robin. The crowd were really up for it, so were the band! They came down onto the dance floor (that sticky bit! ) and got people limbo dancing under a piece of rope! An absolutely superb night and all for a fiver!
I'm interested how the show was too if you get chance Henry.
I saw her at Massey hall a few years ago and it was good.....just good. Found her a bit.....boring after a while.
Yeah, she has a kind of nervous energy when she performs, which can be exciting at first, but can wane after a little while.
I saw her for the first time on her last tour and really enjoyed it. She has a great voice and puts on a decent show. So I made a point of seeing her this time around. Her new album is excellent.
Overall, I enjoyed the concert. I was disappointed that she didn't play a certain song off of her new album that is a particular favorite of mine, despite doing it for other shows on this tour. Her band was O.K. Too much hopping around and head bobbing going on, but I guess that's the "cool" thing to do these days. I think her music deserves a better band. Nice acoustic set for the encore though.
Having said that, I absolutely hate the venue, and probably won't go back unless it's a MUST SEE artist (like PG doing acoustic Genesis in full costume). The sound was awful. It was muffled and screechy. Alanis has a kind of edge to her singing voice that the sound tended to emphasize, making it difficult to understand. That and other things I won't get into.
Anyway, to sum up: Very good concert, crap hole of a venue.
