Yeah, I heard it was the second time.

Put me off going there, which is a shame as it was only 20 minutes drive back to my adopted bed.





Oh, that doesn't sound too good, better rephrase that...

BJH gig was superb. Colin Bass and Jan Schelhass were the support band and they played a nice set including Drafted from the Camel 'Nude' album and also 'As far as I can see' from Colin's superb debut solo album. It was nice to see Jan again after 31 years (I last saw him on the Breathless tour in Germany 1978)

We got the very best of BJH but they did not do 'Suicide' which was strange when they played 1 or 2 less popular and not so good songs 'Cheap the bullet' which I dislike and cannot understand why they chose a sub-standard BJH song but at least it was really the only track I could live without. They also and one song I cannot recall ever hearing (must check out the really older albums) which was about 3 minutes too long. They main set list played:

Galadrial
She Said
The Poet/After the Day
Poor Man's Moody Blues
For No-one
Poor Wages
Harbour
The Iron Maiden
Cheap the Bullet
Nova Lepidotera
Mockingbird
Hymn
Child of the Universe

They only did one short encore (Hymn) but I think they were told to finish before 10pm which was a shame and they had to cut the whole thing short. So, we got 1 hour 30 minutes which is OK.

Woolly was his usual wonderful insane self, amazing on the keys and his mellotrons rang out superbly. John was a bit more animated than usual and even smiled a few times but what a guitarist he is. Vocally he was better than the Manchester gig earlier this year but in all honestly the whole sound was more vibrant than in April. Bass by Guy Fletcher was spot on and he did lead vocals on Cheap the Bullet (I wonder why that was as he also sang lead on Loving in Easy on a previous tour? Maybe John is finding it tough these days).

Highlights for me were the Woolly songs with The Poet/After the Day, Mockingbird and She Said making the hairs on my neck rise. I do like the classic John songs but perhaps he should do a couple of his other songs like Memory of the Martyrs, John Lennon's guitar or Love is like a violin.
Good to see James T and some old friends at the gig

Audience were very appreciative but I found I was really annoyed at the lack of respect from a section of the booze filled crowd who were talking and laughing during Galadriel and a lot of the other songs. Something that James T and my friends agreed was becoming a major problem at gigs today with so much booze being consumed. I was being pushed every 10 seconds by people going to the bar or toilet and then coming back. Spoiled the evening a bit. Strange thing is that at the Manchester gig it was all seated and you could hear a pin drop plus there was no alcohol consumed in the venue. No doubt where the problem lies. Why people pay a lot of money for a ticket and then treat the venue like a pub is beyond me. I give my full respect to musicians and wonder why others simply cannot refrain from making an arse of themselves by their troglodyte behaviour through excessive alcohol and complete ignorance for the musicians and those who paid money to watch a performance. I feel like giving up now and may begin to select gigs based on seated venues.

I will second your review. as a ''first timer '' BJH live were amazing soundwas great .only spoiled by idiots who have thirst and/ or bladder problems necessitating frequent trips through the audience. Maybe they could construct some kind of'' rat run at the side away from those who actually want to listen.

yes this is a huge problem, but not restricted to Scotland / UK.
The MMEB gigs in Norway were completely outstanding with the new singer Pete Cox (Go West) fitting in wonderfully. However, The crowds were full of drunk woman screaming and barging.

I do prefer these days to sit down at gigs for that very reason.

nearly forgot to mention that Mick Rogers told the crowd off (politely) for talking throughout the concert.

More artists should do that. I am not a fan of the Gallagher brothers but I recall reading that they told fans to "shut the f*ck up and stop being so f*cking ignorant or they would walk off stage"

Well done and perhaps we should have ushers to herd those sloathes out of the venue much like they would do if you were laughing and talking and getting pissed during the third act of the opera or ballet.
