except the sisters don't use dry ice. dry ice is the solid form of carbon dioxide immersed in water which subliminates it into the fog effect. however dry ice is the heavy fog effect which stays swirling near the ground.
the sisters use smoke-macines which heats gaseous CO2 or water-glycol mix to form fast rising billowing clouds of fog. as Being645 says this could only be slippery if you spilled the fluid. the security guy was talking out if his arse.

Anyone know what Von was getting upset about? Think I remember him saying "we are not happy" quite a few times. Probably wasn't to do with the boobs 😳

One of the first videos, Lucretia and Vision Thing, looks and sounds good!

7:55 about Trump "as you will guess I'm not happy about this", but it sounds like you thought of something else.

Trump. And he looked fine when he got up. I could have misheard the security bloke, it certainly sounded like he said that he slipped!

Ah you're probably right. Valentine and Mother Russia seemed to have a particular resonance this time around.

Finding a confirmed setlist is proving somewhat impossible though :(

He pourred his drink (first bottle). A roadie came onto stage and tried to clean up the mess. Five minutes later, Andrew was lying on the ground. :)

Had a really good evening in Bristol yesterday. Hope someone captured the brief rendition of Moonage Daydream and that it'll appear on YouTube sometime soon. That was a great moment.

Enough random people took a photo of mine..

It was the same as Brum <apart from the improptu Bowie bit!>

I don't think i wrote about this one yet. Can't let that continue!

I had a good feel from Bristol itself instantly. Seems like the city attracts a thoughtful and engaged populace. The people around me in front were young and enthusiastic and we had meaningful conversations prior to the gig starting.

There was a turnout specifically for the membranes, or perhaps John Robb in general and it energized their set. One woman came over for a kiss, which he supplied.

The sisters sounded great and that familiar energy was flowing. Andrew missed a few lines here and there, yes, but it still flowed well. As far as the "fall" at the end, he slipped on something and recovered rather lithely and without breaking character much. I'll blame the fog. And likely the liquid in the water bottle.

I dove into smoke and mirrors afterward to do some work if all things, and I did see that Ben was in attendance.

Great show, good crowd, and the added bonus of a posh hotel room made it a good day.
