Always interesting how a different position in the hall/personal opinions differ.

I was there last night too. To me Thunder we very excellent - the majority of those in the hall engaged, and the applause seemed to reflect that.

I am a huge Whitesnake fan, albeit favouring pre ’87. My view (and that is all it is) was that they were poor. I liked the setlist which included Ready and Willing, Don't Break My Heart Again and Gambler (dedicated to Galley, Powell and Lord). However to my ears, the sound was harsh, with the vocals being shrill. Cov's voice is just not up to the rigours of what's needed now, although the band do a lot of the vocal work (harmonies were certainly off at times last night though).

I thought JRNY's sound was much cleaner on the night. Agree that they struggled to engage the crowd hugely and there were a good few leaving early (some may have been heading off for public transport of course as the show didn't finish until close to 11pm). Vocally Arnel was flawless,the lighting and video projections were great, although the album tracks they played were probably somewhat obscure for the casual fan.
