Loved this gig, loved the set list and felt like I was listening to a band at the top of their game. However, would also say that the sound quality was shit, and as I was standing close to the sound techs at one stage I can only assume they could hear it the same as me and there was nothing they could do about it. When Dweezil addressed the crowd, on several occasions, it was VERY difficult to pick up what he was saying. The contrast with the quality of Frank's HD video footage was remarkable. That was crystal clear, beautiful notes, and it made the (crap) sound quality of ZPZ all the more noticeable when it switched back.
And I don't know what it is about over 50's (do they not get out much?) but I didn't pay good money to listen to way-off-key verbatim renditions of 'Don't Eat The Yellow Snow' 'St Alfonsos Pankake Breakfast' etc. by oldies next to me. And even worse during the spoken dialogue (...That got me just about as evil as an eskimo boy can be. so I bent down. And I reached down, and I scooped down and I gathered up a generous...OMFG! STOP IT!!!)
The last time I had this many old codgers trying to sing was at Leonard Cohen (I suppose at least this time I only paid 30 quid to hear them, Cohen cost me 75). Please old people, just don't. I too know all the words, so what? They seemed to quieten down as the gig went on so maybe it was getting close to their bedtime or something, but I moved position 3 times to avoid listening to someone who quite rightly wasn't on stage...
Great gig though!
