Temple.

But you knew that.

Sometimes this feels like going through the motions.
Tonight is good. Crowd is into it, as in Von.

Happy days.

Agreed- wasn’t keen on More, Jeep & detonation (but I generally am not)

Do you want to post the 4th encore @ruffers?

Really good show.

"Defender of the faith" eh? Sounds a bit like another well-known group's motto! This is presumably Von's ironic comments on the Brexit issue. It looks as if Trump got him thinking about making an album, but Boris has been the catalyst (no pun intended) to actually getting the ball rolling.

That wiki can’t be right!
I’m trying to find better reptile from all the feeds in random order. The wiki is off. No Marian... someone fix the wiki!

Guess this is what I get for skipping Europe.

Thoroughly enjoyed the gig, awhile since I’ve been down the front Not impressed with the setlist personally but we cannot everything. First time I’ve heard the new tracks and first hear I was impressed with them. Von in good voice and it sounded good to me, although some around me were shouting louder.

Great night. Sisters on Top form. Was pleased with the set list. And the new stuff sounded groovy. They're selling Walk Away shirts too for those that don't want to spend a fortune on ebay! Really great evening! :D

😄 thank you, but I meant that I couldn’t find it in my Facebook feeds of people posting live videos. It is the one song missing from the best feed, actually. I think it is catchy and want to hear it again. Soon, I’m sure.

Well that was fun! OK, sound seemed a bit ropey to me at the start, but by Susanne it had picked up and from there everything was in top form. I still buck the trend by calling Better Reptile my favourite of the new tracks. Fantastic Lucretia, fantastic Vision Thing, best Corrosion I've ever heard them do, I think.

It's slightly weird. 2 years ago we got Walk Away and Body & Soul, previous time I saw them Lisa Cuthbert was with them and it was something special. This time was different but also great, just in a different way.

Von does look like Eddie Hitler in that jacket, though.

You're breaking my heart. I'm not complaining, mind you. Just telling you the state of my heart.
The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.

Mine too, from my brief second-hand exposure to the new songs via YouTube.

Thanks to all who kept us up to date on this thread. Kicking myself for not making more of an effort to get to one of these shows.

Susanne, also Show Me and Better Reptile uploaded on the same account:

The vocals sound great but I'm a little frustrated with how Von seems to have forgotten the entire 2nd verse of Susanne ahead of this tour. :lol:

Loved every hot minute last night. Great crowd! The blackout drape getting caught on the mirror above the stage was pure Spinal Tap and very, very funny :lol: Alice was particularly mean and sinister & I achieved out-of-body during Marian. Show Me On The Doll (love that full dark title) still my favourite of the new tracks. Was trying to figure out what the “FID DEFâ€� on the t-shirt means... (EDIT: “Defender of the faithâ€� thanks!) The backprint says “National Treasureâ€� 😎

Bring on tonight’s encore :notworthy:
