I loved it!
This was my first Gods/Firefest show and it was amazing!
That atmosphere was great, even though I didn't meet anyone off this here Noticeboard (next year!).
Biggest dissappointment: Jorn Lande. I've always wanted to see him too, but the posing and his attitude when the mic's went off, and the fact that he didn't perform some of his better material... I dunno, he just wasn't what I expected. I hope one day I can see him in the UK on his own headlining tour where he has more time and will play (hopefully) a better set.
Stars of the show for me were Valentine and Harem Scarem. Valentine were amazing and looked so appreciative of the audience reaction, and sounded great to boot!
Harem Scarem I had no expectations and apart from the lack of Honestly, played a mixed bag of rocking tunes, looked like they were enjoying themselves, and really tried to get some good crowd interaction! And they had me really impressed!
I missed most of Jaded Heart, but they seemed to really get the crowd going. I enjoyed Crunch, but agree with the image problems remarks. I couldn't stop thinking about the larger-than-life 30-something in a shirt and tie, with the aviators and 15 year old boys hair-cut... was a weird image! But it's the music that matters and I liked the old Adriangale and the new song, so that was good!
Tyketto I'm not really familiar with. Mainly because their stuff is so hard to find! I love Danny's solo stuff and did manage to get the first Tyketto off a mate, but hadn't listened to it enough before Firefest to sing along and get familiar! Danny was superb and the audience clearly loved every second of it! I was so knackered from standing all day with no food, that I started to whither while they were on, but they were deffinitely a great rock band with some excellent tunes! But considering they've been going for almost as long as i've been alive, and this was the original line-up, how did they end up with a 16 year-old on bass?! I was trying to work it out in my head and the guy has to be at the youngest 36 or 37?! He looked kinda out of place, and didn't seem to interact as much as Brooke and Danny, but on the whole, awesome set!
and finally... FM! I really hope this come back lasts! They were excellent, Steve sounds so good live (and usually singers with that throaty vocal seem to lose it after a few years), they put on a great show... Steve and Andy's guitar parts were great and the whole band just seemed overwhelmed! I look forward to the possibility of seeing them again, and the DVD they were clearly filming. I just also hope that the FM reunion doesn't kill off The Ladder, because their last album is a highlight of the year for me!
Next year? Maybe something like Andrew did for the melodicrockfest? With an All-Star Jam Set at the end... especially if this is to be the last one ever!
Also: Jimi Jamison, Pride Of Lions, Kevin Chalfant, Terry Brock (or Le Roux if he's tied to them now?), Newman, Lou Gramm band, Kane Roberts, the previously mentioned Damn Yankees reunion sounds good! In the new Fireworks Mag Steve Morris says that Heartland wish to tour next year... and how about an Unruly Child Reunion?!
Just a few ideas :-)
If I start crapping money, i'll let you know! lol!
Many thanks to Kieran, Bruce and all involved for a great night! (No thanks to Nationwide, Virgin Trains and the Strathdon Hotel, who all left a bitter taste! But balls with all that!... Oh and that bloke in front of me who farted all night! I would have saved his spot if he just went for a quick crap and came back!)
