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.
elophile: OH, Yes! Will you take a little sip when no one is looking?

Grroosss: Well. I discovered r/ELOcirclejerk and the ELO Discord yesterday. Lots to offer (and fans my age!) but too much chaos to take in all at once... Feels good to be back home ::animated-smileys-hug-008::

Helmut83: Is there an ELO Discord? Good data, Grroosss! Gotta check it out, I've been a regular at discord since about two months ago when quarentine boredom drove me there.

Helmut83: I couldn't find it though. Maybe you got mixed up with Reddit?
