Oho, I understand all too well. You men always stick together..no, actually I don't want to have that mental picture...anyway, just because he's a drummer he doesn't have the right to behave like that. He could work out all his stress on the drum kit, like Bevey the Custard King. Speaking of whom..... *big hint, sharp elbow*
It's all good entertainment, it doesn't cost a penny
Genesis were great. Phil with Gensis was awesome. Phil by himself.......Hmmmm. "Think twice cause its another day for you and me in para...) blah!!!! He was a bit of a tw**. I think even he would own up to that! Now he was no Sting or Boner but still a pleb all the same. Sorry.
Edit: shame there's no Pandora's Box though, it's my absolute favourite and it was in all the trailers
I've never heard 'Pandora's Box' with an orchestra. It's hole in the set matches the hole left by 'Hold on Tight' in Jeff's Hyde Park set. Typical Procol, though, just as uncompliant with what's expected of them as Jeff is.
For unomusette who had hopes to see the concert on the Red Button - here is the encore, ‘Conquistador’, captured by someone with a better camera than mine:
Look out for David Firman, the conductor, Jeff should hire him for his future orchestral gigs!
The BBC stuck almost exactly to the live show. They virtually put it out “as live” apart from a little splicing with ‘A Salty Dog’ and even Gary didn’t think that needed doing. To go all Jeff Lynne and technical on you – apparently the live sound and the BBC sound were different mixes. The live audience mix going through the desk at the back of the auditorium and the BBC mix going out to the outside unit. No mixing whatsoever took place after the show, just a little trimming for time.
While we're on the subject of Genesis, at the Dominion I was sat three rows behind Mr Mike Rutherford - there was a lovely quietness about him. I also saw Jeff Lynne look-a-like Chas Hodges of Chas and Dave fame in the audience.
orioles70: lots of flooding in Washington today, but the forecast between now and Thursday's concert looks like drier weather is coming

BIuebird: orioles70 Oh dear, be careful! Hopefully the weather will clear up before your show! So far weather for Philly on Saturday looks sunny, so that's good. Last Saturday we flew into the Philly airport, and the weather was so bad that we were stranded on

BIuebird: the tarmac for 3 hours

orioles70: it would be nice if the airlines would give you 3 more hours of vacation instead of pushing back from the gate just to bake in an aluminum cylinder - keep the faith BIuebird, you'll be back to PA in time for the show

orioles70: meanwhile, the spaceship has been spotted flying low over Lake Okeechobee getting ready to touch down for a gig on the edge of the Everglades - no forum members in South Florida?

orioles70: thanks eloneen, To mash a few metaphors - we may be Standin' in the Rain amidst Summer and Lightning but neither clouds nor rain nor flash of light will keep us from completing our musical pilgrimage

Jul 13, 2019 18:02:33 GMT
BIuebird: Thanks, we had a great time! I posted in the tour thread. Although we did cut it a little close getting there because my dad didn't want to leave earlier, and we got stuck in traffic. I thought I was going to have a heart attack.

denny: Any Federer fans as gutted as I am?

Horacewimp: I did want him to win denny it was a shame he couldn’t convert the match points. Great weekend for sport tennis, F1 and the cricket final and all hosted in the U.K.

vlogdance: I wanted Roger to win Wimbledon as well, but what an epic final. Wore me out just watching!
Jul 15, 2019 11:19:01 GMT
orioles70: it was a great final, the crowd was clearly rooting for Roger and he had a couple of match point chances - don't know how many more chances he will get
