Great gig! Rated 6/6 from me. I stayed in the front and got squeezed between dedicated fans all the time. They promised to be back next year, and I hope they keep the promise. In the end I got the setlist.
I will write a longer experience description later, as for now I just feel the need to say that:
* The band was playing perfectly * Shane sang wonderfully * I'm still exhausted from the whole night * After 2 showers, I still smell like sweat and beer * My voice is gone * This was the best night of my life!
Simply put - it was all that I dreamed it would be, and more. Much, much more. Thanks to he whole band for making this night come true! I really do hope you'll be coming back next year, like Jem said at the end!
I waited a while to see if I could see any of you after the show, but to no avail. I managed to buy a tour shirt though, it looks awesome! I will live of this experience until I see you again. I have no better way of describing the whole evening than 'wow, best night of my life'. And I'm sure it will be the best until I see you again. Quite frankly I'm tempted to spend what little money I have to go see you in Ireland for the Christmas tour. Just when I thought it wouldn't be possible for me to like you anymore than I did, I see you live. And get blown away, again. Wow.
"So lie near the wall and cover your head. Good night and God bless, now fuck off to bed."
