STJL was great to see, Squirm finished BW for me - sadly it's the only album I've completed...! The encore was so special, with Dave soloing Little Thing and Dodo. Was an emotional Space Between for me too. Some other really strong performances in there, but the crowd wasn't massively into the gig, being part of the Blues Fest. Two Step I'm not a fan of (current format) which was the only part of the set I wasn't into. Also the weird man who introduced the band was slightly disconcerting! Gave it 5* because of the first three songs of the encore, the solid performance throughout, and the very decent set list.

A good, good show! Thank you!!!!! May not be able to compete with those nominated for a Live trax release, but still, I could enjoy every single moment of it. Well 5 years, it has been a long time indeed. I think the band has got the point now with focusing mostly on older songs on this tour. On the 2007, 2009 and 2010 tours they were introducing their new albums and played just some of the old songs. I know these are the songs US fans might have heard most of the times, but I think Europeans have been missing those like a bite of bread. Just mentioning some of those, which I have heard here the first time (after four shows): Warehouse, What Would You Say, Proudest Monkey, Lie In Our Graves, The Song That Jane Likes, though most of these are not rarely plaid songs at all. Still a lot to go with those missing iconic ones so I hope they will be back soon and continue help to make up Europe`s decades long leeway. Highlights: Very nice performance by Dave, particularly liked his new song with his piano playing and his very high pitched emotional voice. Mind blowing solo from Boyd in LIOG. It was unbelievable how he was gradually enhancing the tension in his playing. I felt three times like he would have reached the top then he could always add something more to it. Rashawn and Jeff were doing the same thing, only to each other as they were building up their solo duets in several songs, giving each other more and more boost when taking turns. It was the first time I heard WWYS with a flute solo. Jeff enjoyed playing so much that he forgot to switch back to sax and he played that heavy horn stuff at the end also on the flute, of course completely faded by Rashawn`s trumpet part. Both brass players could barely stand on their feet because of heavily laughing as they were playing the final notes (an easily won battle by Rashawn). It was amazing how Tim`s guitar solos have driven some of the songs and gave a new meaning to them in terms of the sound of the whole. He is just incredible in making different kind of musical interpretations of the same sounds. Not to mention the rhythm section Stefan and Carter, they were as much responsible for the incredible sound of the show as all the others. The show was so good that it felt just too short. As they finished with Jimi thing, the last song before the encore it felt like we would be somewhere in the middle of the show. Note, we won`t forget, their promise of coming back soon, hopefully much sooner than they meant last time.

I got a sister named Jane... Highlight of the show for me!! I'm not a big fan of the O2 as a music venue, but I have to say sound quality was spot on! Compared to the 2010 gig, it seemed to me that the crowd was more into it, which does help! Overall solid show.

First concert outside the US and it was good fun. A bunch of other Americans around us and we were all amazed the our UK fans don't dance. They sat for the entire show.
