    Great night, might post a review tomorrow

    Superb sound, even from first row. Crowd was not as rowdy as I thought they might be.. You could hear a pin drop at times..

    Great atmosphere in the band, lots of smiles..

    Speak soon, take care !

    Really enjoyed the show and as mentioned the sound was great. Loved last nights 'Mutineers','Coming Down' and of course 'Nemesis'.
    Because of a strict curfew it was a little rushed near the end, and though people thought he would have liked to have played for longer, he didn't have time to play all of his intended encore or even allow all the band to join him on stage at the end for the audience to show their appreciation.
    As in Liverpool the audience weren't rushing to get to their feet for the finale but David persuaded them in a similar manner to a lovely German lady in Liverpool!
    I was more scared of her than him!!!
    It would have been nice to have met everyone from the forum who were there, but faces don't correspond to posts, but so nice to say hi to those I met.
    See you all further down the road!!

    Sorry I didn't get a chance to see anyone at this show. By the time my train got in I just had enough time for a shower and dinner before the show. So glad everyone had such a wonderful time.

    Marcel you are absolutely right about being able to hear a pin drop at times. Really one of the most respectful crowds I have experienced. I was very impressed. I was surprised it took David coaxing to get everyone to their feet but once they did the room had a very lively and electric feel. So not really quite the crowd I was expecting but a very good one.

    My experience at this show was a unique for me as I was seated up in the circle (balcony) in the center of the first row. The view from there was spectacular and the sound, oh my gosh, the sound. It was so different from that very close up experience I have had recently and it allowed me see and hear the show from a completely different perspective. I sat there just taking it all in. Nemesis from that perspective just swallowed me whole. Hearing Gulls, a song which will forever be tied in my heart to Ireland after the Sounding Out tour last year, right after left me in tears. The solo section was beautiful with Shine eliciting a great crowd reaction. During Say Hello Wave Goodbye many near me were singing along quietly and it was so sweet. I just loved that. Lots of cheers for TYL and Sail. Once the crowd got into it PFM was a blast and I got such a kick out of looking down and seeing everyone jumping around, dancing and clapping. Most in the Circle were up on our feet too. So fun. The ending of Babylon was interesting because David did most of it solo but then near the end Keith, Tim and John came on stage to join in. It is a shame that the hard curfew meant no further encore songs but it was such a superb show I doubt anyone felt cheated. I certainly didn't. Lovely night.
