I was at the gig as well...& indeed Totobob...believe I was the guy who you were talking to who said his wife wanted to leave (row D ?)
Anyway..Thunder were superb as always..They never miss a beat.....and should have been HUGE in their career.....Anytime I've seen them they ALWAYS deliver....Sound wasn't great but that didn't detract in any way shape or form.
Now Whitesnake..and DC....Probably the 16th time I've seen them, and have been critical of Old Cov in the past..but I have to say..he was at the very top of his game...sang as well as I've seen him in years....and the band were top notch.....Easily band/perfromance of the night..( and I never thought I'd say that with Thunder on the bill)
It's amazed me however some of the negative comments Ive seen on various websites saying he was poor (while many more say he was great)..trust me he was excellent..I actually said to my wife afterwards that anyone who criticises him after that performance can't have been listening to or watching the same gig as us..Now while most of the people at the gig I spoke to agreed with me..Surprise surprise there are the usual suspects on the net who just can't seem to give the man credit when it's due.
One criticism levelled at him was.."it was shocking that the other band members were doing harmony vocals at the chorus's?!!.....WTF is that about.?..Most bands do that...Most GOOD bands do that..it enhances the sound.....I sing in my own Rock band..and WE do it....not because I cant fuckin sing..but because it gives a better end product....The other criticism was that he gets the crowd to sing some parts..Well...Coverdale has ALWAYS done that..since I first saw him back on the Ready & Willing tour....and it's called involving the crowd......and was something Journey sadly lacked (but more of that later) As I say n the past I've criticised him when he hasn't delivered...but this time..he really is on fire...Anyone going to see Whitesnake won't be dissapointed.
Journey on the other hand.....HUGELY dissapointing...Ive seen them 5 times now...( and previously been excellent)..but this was very poor....Muffled sound...no guitar...Sounded as if you were at the end of a shopping mall listening to a cd player coming from inside a shop at the other end...No energy...completely lacklusture.. (apart from Arnel) and looked as if they just weren't up to the challenge after Whitesnake's blistering set..I actually felt sorry for Arnel..He was singing his heart out...never missing a note.....but those around him.....need to have a long hard look at themselves.....They're capable of so much more..which is what really irks me .
I love this band which makes it even worse....and my missus was gutted.
In the end..we left before the end.
However we did enjoy our night thanks to Thunder & Whitesnake..... who were excellent and worth the price of a ticket alone... Journey need to give themselves a shake and rise to the challenge of playing with two fantsatic acts..They ARE capable of it..but will they do it?....
