Bournemouth 9th April 06
Just back from tonight’s gig and it was fantastic. Chris and the band are on top form with Chris’s playing sounding absolutely magical. Sound quality was superb so every nuance could be heard.
Paul Casey on support was highly impressive and its well worth making sure you get seated early to hear him. His CD is on sale in the foyer.
Chris is his usual talkative self. The set list appears to be the same as some of the European gigs so I won’t list them again, but watch out for “I can Hear Your Heartbeat” where they go off in all sorts of different directions, absolute brilliance.
Roberts playing come to the fore a couple of times, noticeably on Highway 61 & 49. and an incredible crunchy rhythm on Stainsby Girls.
All too soon it was over. I could have stayed all night, and I think even if I could attend every gig on this tour I would never stop wanting to hear Chris play guitar live, it is something special.
Please let their be a live album, so we can go on hearing this.
To everyone attending gigs later in the tour, all I can say is that you will have a fantastic evening you lucky lucky people.
