    Fri 3 Aug – Prince

    A real mixed bag of a gig......Unlike any I've seen before in 25 years of gig going!

    The negatives...................................

    Awful sound - no separation in the instruments, Vocals at times inaudiable, too mushy overall!

    In the round? - Not from where I sat (Block 101)! The band all sit "fixed" at the back in the "O" of the symbol facing the wee man, who has his pedals & effects along with his mic stand facing forward too. Looking down the symbol so to speak. He played most of the gig to the front of the house occaisionally coming round to the other half of the set.

    Sort out the setlist! Tonights seemed to be made up "On the fly"! Dodgy start, then he worked the crowd up only to go off after 25 mins to change his outfit! Queue more horns, jazz soloing & a mass exodus to the Bar/Loo!
    This happened again - two more times.


    The positives.........................................

    The band were amazing! Sooooo tight!

    Boy can he play guitar!!!!

    Oh yeah and when he wanted to...........It was Really Funky!

    Bit gutted I'm only going to see him once. When they sort out the sound it should be great!
