    Al Di Meola The Elegant Gypsy 40th Anniversary tour... saw him last night
    at a 928 seat hall, a beautiful venue with very nice acoustics. Here's how
    the show went down.

    The whole band came out just past starting time and and played a very intense
    first set of electric standards from Di Meola's solo masterpiece, Elegant Gypsy,
    his new Elysium (got him back into electric touring) and RTF's Romantic Warrior.
    Having listened to him for over 40 years, still unprepared for his viruosity, speed
    and and 'lick kill'. He has been awarded by Guitar Mag 9 times and is considered
    one of the best in the fusion genre. The band was without percussionist Ortiz,
    but the keyboard, fx-bassist-violionist extrordinaire and drummer were great
    to say the least. Without the percussionist they were more streamlined and their
    read on Romantic Warrior's Medieval Overture, a progressive-fusion jamjest was
    incredible. After the break he went into an acoustic set that showed another side
    of his immense talent, told a story about recording in Abbey Road studios a few
    yrs ago during some free time between gigs and performed some reworked
    Beatles tunes... an incredible 15 minutes this was. Back to the final electric set
    where they performed Black Dog with the violinist laying down stringed Plant vocals
    while dueling with guitarist Al Di Meola, moving on through some very heavy fusion
    and encoring with the classic Race With The Devil Down The Spanish Highway.

    Di Meola was one of the classiest musicians ever, charm, passion, and an ear
    for his audience, genuine guy. He is 62 going on 40. Most of the night he played
    his '59 Gibson ES blackie. We were very close to the stage and it was prob the
    most intense, electrifying 2 hr show I have seen since King Crimson in 2003.

    Thanks for reading and good listening...

    Tegan and Sara.

    It was pretty sweet. It was at a venue that was mostly just standing room, and I cannot stand general admission shows like that. But they have a balcony, and I guess since nobody wanted to be in the balcony, they were giving balcony upgrades away free for signing an email list. So I did that and I got to enjoy the show from exactly where I wanted to be. Good setlist, enough of the old stuff to satisfy me.

    Saw Delain and Sirenia a while back, but I've already talked about that in their respective band threads.

    So, last night: Blues Pills

    Phenomenal gig. I've seen them before and last time they were great, but their singer Elin felt a bit withdrawn and shy, yet still sung like a goddess, but last night she was on fire and felt totally confident - she even performed a ballad on her own with just a piano. It's great to follow a band from the start and see how their live performance evolve!

    My daughter obtained tickets for my wife and me to see Muse in Teignmouth 2009 as a birthday present. The concert was magical on many fronts, Teignmouth was Muse home town where they started playing in their college.
    I have seen many groups/ Rock concerts in my life time and personally for me it was one of my favourite top concerts. With Muse for me they get right to the 'business' with songs, which for me rock, have melody and it all can get very emotional. Nearly every song seems like a 'rock anthem' and the reaction of the audience seem to show this. Its hard not to be swayed by their music, there are no boring bits as I have experienced in past live concerts (the days when the guitarist did 20 min solo, organist does 20 min solo then finally drummer does 20 min solo - good time to buy drinks at the bar..!).

    John Coghlan's Quo - Reading Sub 89

    Band was on ridiculously early and we missed the first two songs, but was a great show anyway. They're back in February 2018 so i'll be there again.

    Managed to get a copy of the setlist after the show as well so well chuffed.
