What a GREAT gig this was!!!!
Felt tired and low after a long hard week and this was the perfect antidote.
There weren't many in for Tara's Secret so it was a bit quiet but enjoyed the songs and the banter from the band - it was also cool to put some faces to names on here!!
Danny was simply superb - first saw him back in '91 (or was it '92?) at Nottingham Rock City when Tyketto came round for the first time and have seen him many times since then and I have to say this was the most enyjoyable time I've had at any Vaughn et al show.
He seemed really into the acoustic vibe and the songs worked really well. Superb mix of classics ('Burning Down Inside' was HUGE singalong) mixed with stuff never played before ('Damn').
Few things to note :
1. Tony cocking up the intro to 'Soldiers & Sailors on Riverside', much to amusement of all!!!! (was it that one?)
2. 'When You Walk Away' - always been a big fave of mine and played for the first time ever last night. Clearly a very personal song for Danny, spine tingling.
3. Decent sound at Jb's!!! Last few gigs I've seen there I haven't been impressed, so thanks, whoever that was.
4. The storytellers vibe really brought out a personal feel to the gig, much warmer and intimate then solely electric stuff.
5. The 'From the Inside' stuff transfered really well live - should be aired more often.
Thanks to all involved - loved it.
The only thing stopping you from coming back to me is that you don't want to come back to me.
