Deja Vu - Quick & Dirty O2 Review


Set List

Bedlam
Fireball
Bludsucker
All I Got Is You
Uncommon Man
The Surprising
Lazy
Birds of Prey
Knockin'
Airy Solo
Perfect strangers
Space Truckin'
SOTW
Hush
Black Night

Just got back home folks. I took my brother-in-law who hasn't seen them before (and he loved it) and I sat next to a "Perfect Strangers" couple (the guy wore a Led Zep shirt) who were excited, Purp virgins.

I had low expectations and they didn't exceed them or miss them. In general, Airey, Paice & Glover drove it to their normal standards.

I really don't like the venue although seats were better than 2015. I was somewhat pissed off by being told to sit down when a group of us rose to SOTW!

The worst moment was IG failing on AIGIY, which is my ONE track from Infinity. NOT bad singing, just a total melt down on the lyrics and order of them.

I felt the set could have been a bit more old school given that it was their last shot and I was disappointed that there was no Highway Star. Nevertheless, I'm glad that I saw them but they didn't hit my personal heights; Knebworth 85, Brixton Academy 93, JL Farewell gigs, Tokyo 05, Astoria whenever, Brighton whenever & Costa Mesa 07.

To answer your question leelyt, they were audience members. I told them that we were at a rock concert and stood my ground...

What a strange thing to say to someone at a rock concert. In fairness there were a lot of times at Birmingham where everyone was seated, and then everyone stood at certain times.
Maybe these particular fans were the same age as the band and couldn't stand emoticon
