Positives first

Looked like nearly a sell out in a large hall.

Thunder good solid performance but sound was not particularly good.

Whitesnake easily won the battle of the bands. Other than the solos which I could personally do without, the band were immense. Forevermore and Still of the Night were just sensational and they left the stage with the large crowd on a high.

Now the negatives.

In a word Journey.

I really don't know where to start but will start by saying I love this bands music and have seen them before when they have been excellent.

They just wandered onto the stage with no noticeable intro and launched straight into Separate Ways. The sound was awful and to me it sounded like everything was muffled and lifeless.
They were just bad on all levels. The sound : the lack of rapport with the audience : the bands demeanour on stage : when you could hear the guitar it seemed to me he was soloing over everything : people everywhere were sitting down or worse actually leaving in large numbers.

Don't get me wrong, they got a reasonable reception and we all did our best by singing along from time to time but I was bored senseless. The man next to me told me that Journey are his wife's favourite band but she was pleading with him to leave and go home half way into the set.

In summary I thought Journey were just awful from start to finish and I will never go and see them again. Oh and we all agreed, why particularly here in the UK, were Whitesnake not the headline band. If they had been we would all have gone home happy.
