2. The first song to always be FALAA or Kiss The Carpet.
The show opener is always a key part of a good gig for me. Kiss the Carpet and Crash and Burn have the right elements - a slow-burner with plenty of time for the tension to build until :von: emerges through the sodium haze. Comfortably Numb/SKOS was also perfect. For me FALAA
fits into the same category as Anaconda and TOL - too fast, and not enough build up before the vocals kick in.

Been to just two gigs this year (a lot for me): saw the girls back in March in Paris and in Utrecht on December first. Great gigs!

In 2012 -if they tour again- I would like to hear:

On the Wire
Emma
Valentine
Gimme Shelter
Jolene

What can I say? They are awesome classics!

Did both Leeds gigs and the Barcelona gig this year and have been really happy with the gigs. Not as many as I would've liked due to slackness mainly but on balance I'm pleased to have seen them at the start and near the end of the tour.

The Leeds gigs were great fun with a good selection of tunes over the two nights and Barcelona was ace. Whether my girlfriends getting in to them now and insisting we went down the front made a difference but it just seemed like such a top gig.

As for 2012 for my two pence I second both Sita and Husek for Driven Like The Snow and Nine While Nine plus would love to hear the following :-

Comfortably Numb / Some Kind Of Stranger
Emma
Jolene
ADRENACHROME ! ! ! ! (Please, please, please, grovel, grovel, beg, beg)
Sister Ray

Adrenochrome would be nice.
Beside Heartland, of course.

To the live stuff collectors: I really like Gift that shines. Which is the best recording of it (relating to sound quality)?

I suddenly noticed that (as well as being noticeably faster) the live version of Marian is now played in Gm rather than Em.

Certainly makes the twiddly guitar bit easier, as you can play it all on the top 3 strings, plus Eldritch obviously finds it easier to sing at volume in G than in E.

considering i went to two of the gigs in 2011, one in Belgium, one in Holland:

* Groeneputte ~ Stekene 02/09/2011
  • * it was hot, it was belgium, a friday & meet & drink with :von: & 3 others was definately the highlight of the year for me.
    * the audience was fabulous except for the elbowing men around me.
* Tivoli ~ Utrecht 02/12/2011
  • * it was intense, sound was brilliant but then again i was stood very near to the speakers. it also got hot but there was a spot to dance right up front which was awesome.
    * the audience, those around me HL members, were lovely, & the band seemed to be having fun on stage, always good.
so my humble vote goes to... best gig...*drum roll*...

Tivoli ~ Utrecht.


wish list for 2012, to do a quick gig near to me in the summer months & of course YCBTO to be sneaked in somewhere! :wink:
here we go again....

It's a pity they don't do it in Dm, which, as Nigel Tufnel could tell you, is the saddest of all keys.
advanced, forthright, signifficant
