Marillion in Lille.
Arrival : It seems we had more trouble on the road than Anthony who arrive just before the rush hour. So, short time to meet Anthony and some people before the gig, and share a beer . Well, guys, we failed in taking a selfie of Anthony with his 3 Charlie’s Angels , sorry.
The venue : They abandonned the old fashionned Le Splendid where Marillion have always been playing, and played in l’Aeronef, which was full (capacity 1850). We should have listened to Anthony, and hurry up : no more place on the balcony, and a poor view. We ended in the stairs, good view, but poor sound, and the good point was we had some air to breathe: We saw several time emergency staff taking care of sick people…
John Wesley : I prefer to say nothing…
Marillion : no surprise about the setlist. It didn’t changed my mind about the last album. I had the feeling all tracks, even the old ones, were played on a slower mode. I repeated myself it was just me, but it appears after the show I was not the only one who noticed this, though none of us ate special mushrooms… So, not a bad concert at all, but not the best concert for me.
After the show : sad Anthony could not join us, he had to go back. We ended in the bar where we had been before the show, and so happy to meet again all the Marillion friends !!! Yesss, good !
Back at home at 2:00 !
Going at work now
