The event was being filmed, which is perhaps why it took so long for them to get on stage, but when they go there, they did an excellent set of both new and 'classic' tracks. Most people stood up, but as this is the fourth gig in a week for us, we decided to sit, which is why occasionally the view gets obscured. I also had to hide the camera from the security who were taking an interest in people filming the gig... plus also the amount of ladies that got up and went past us...either then needed incontinence pants, or they should cut down on the alcohol intake...
They had quite an interesting feature, well two if you count the girders that had lights on them (for the filming???), they had several faces projected onto large plastic faces over the stage. Naturally it was the band, plus the lady singer who came in for some of the tracks. She had an amazing voice by the way. It was a nice touch, plus they also got the crowd involved by getting one girl to introduce Simon Le Bon and also another to start The Reflex (I think...). He also sported a very dodgy beard.
I haven't listened to the band since the '80's, in fact I didn't really listen to them then either, but of course I knew the songs pretty well. They did a great job of getting the audience up and moving, and it was a great evening out!
Oh, and we got out of the car park really quickly, which is good as the MEN is a pain...
