Biggest gig of the tour so far, the biggest
crowd so far and the noisiest. It was such a contrast to Leeds. Tonight was
a very high stage and the audience were quite far away behind the barrier.
The gig exploded right from the start. I have to take my hat off to the band
tonight as they played superbly.
Read Mike's tour diary at
Alarm 2000 hit the stage and whooh – it took your breath away – brilliant set and I realised how much I
have missed Mike’s solo stuff including one of my favourite’s Breathe. But
then you get blasted by Majority, Strength, Absolute, Rescue Me etc and I was starting to think Christmas had come early – I could have both Mike’s solo and Alarm tunes too.
The crowd are up for it from the start and gave Spear a warm welcome.
This was a particularly good gig helped by the later start, longer set and nicer venue
Just wanted to say how impressed I was with the gig on Friday. No, it
wasn’t The Alarm, but it was fantastic to be part of a large crowd hearing
those songs again, with a band that have really worked on the arrangements.
Mike was brillant – but I also want to say how much I enjoyed James
Stevenson guitar playing. On High on the Hill and Strength in particular I think he added another level to the songs. GUITAR HERO!
