Topic: Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds - Manchester
What a performance. Cave's never been better and he's got a mighty back catalogue to dip into.
Highlights were Stagger Lee, Red Right Hand and following an orchestrated and dignified stage invasion, Push the sky away.
...apart from the venue. First ever arena gig; hope it's my last. Lighting, sound, visuals, all spot on, but the setting was distracting. From the airport-style security access (I know, I know) to the cavernous arena and the loud-mouthed clown behind me, from whom there was no escape, it just felt wrong.
