That was just plain bad and ponderous
A solid hour and 45 minutes’ worth of classic Cheap Trick. You’re there for a good time; to be entertained and to hear a great band who still rocks with as much explosiveness as they did when the first burst on to the scene
Say what you will; three-plus decades since Weller started his ascent on stage, with a band and three-plus decades later and he’s still finding new ways to make us all young and driven again. A stellar night
Consensus – a phenomenal performance. I have no hesitation in saying that because I know so little, I enjoyed them to no end. And hearing all those hits, which irritated me so many years ago, was a joy – and the musicianship left my head turned completely
The last people to be on the stage would be the four members of The Bongos, Glenn Mercer, Ira Kaplan and Georgia Hubley of Yo La Tengo, Nick Celeste, once again, and well, me. Rob Ross, ex-guitarist/singer of The Punch Line
The words that spring to mind are: powerful, exhilarating, uplifting, emotional. In a word, a joyous occasion – something truly special.
Had the sound been better, I would have liked them even more, but for certain, Pissed Jeans were a great way to begin the night.
