The show itself From the start WAS amazing from the rumbling of subdivisions and the Only uk/European performance of Limelight. spectacular lighting effects and videos a Hooge amount of time and money spent on that ..JUST a shame that the same wasn't spent on a decent sound system. The secc hall 4 isn't good for music its a HOOGE empty barn of a hall (that's why there building the Hydro next door apparently) BUT having some Roof hung speakers pointed at the Floor level of the venue only caters slightly towards the HOT seats (those insane enough to have paid £240) so the rest have to get what they get. That said this is the best recording I could get from where I was sitting. the clockwork angels set of the show was amazing.. I love this album and despite reservations by my friends Live awesome
I was seated on the RAISED seats at the rear of the venue Origionally in Block Q ROW J WHEN I ARRIVED AT VENUE I was puzzled at the access to that block being BLOCKED off I entered thru the lane to Block N. to find that several sections were covered PQ AND R and without so much as a Sorry were having to move you I had my ticket taken and new seats written on it NOW in BLOCK N ROW K seat 3. no complaints there then moved to a slightly better View ,rather than side on now front side on. Now I never had any real complaints as the Tickets for this show ran around £75 POUNDS PLUS CHARGES for front FLOOR and £65 plus charges for other areas and it seemed like £ 60 plus charges for the raised seats. sadly for the guys I was sitting beside that had bought there 65 pound tickets the day before. I had paid just £35 for mine.. yes I would be a bit hacked off as well. Now the show I have NO doubts that most people that think the show was worth that money BUT there would be NO EMPTY seats at either side of the back of this 10000 seater arena if the BAND or indeed the promotor had scaled down the PRICES slightly Oh they did Cos in they had set up the £35 seats no doubt as they were struggling to sell..But didn't mention them unless the BUYER asked.
This isn't my Best recording but its Good enough to be a record of the event.
lastly of the secc it SUCKS as a venue for sound .In fact it kinda SUCKS as a venue rip off prices vending machines turned off to force people to buy from the In house Drink and food suppliers car parking rip offs.. But at the end of it alL we go see the bands we love..
