Nice to see Fish's "report" on FB about last night's gig in Nice.
The location of the theater is a rough one indeed and I was quite happy to find my car in one piece afterwards or to not have been mugged
Superb gig, we were right at the front and to me the sound was very very good.
Fish seemed to be in good shape, he gave us a brilliant performance and the High Wood suite was a real treat, took a real dimension thanks to a great introduction by Fish and a crystal clear sound,( fantastic guitar and drumming btw) plus superb projection work (thumbs up Angus) on a massive screen behind the stage. After the gig Shaun actually told us it was the second venue in this tour where the screen was actually so big.
Interesting to see a French audience for the first time at a Fish gig, they were very responsive and full of energy, and very shy compared to the British audience Different ambiance but all in all a really great one. You could tell it was a real treat for all as last time Fish came in Nice it was 25 years ago.
Vigil as always had us transported in another dimension (always reminds me of you Arcade, I can remember you were so taken by this at the Caves in EDB)
Then Incubus and the Company made some of us go absolutely wild and at that point I just did not want the song to end. As always two very powerful songs that send shivers through and make you cry and recalled unforgettable memories for me and couldn't help but think of JimB and my other Forum friends that I met in previous gigs.
How I miss not to be able to meet up with you all.
It was so great that Ulli and Silke flew all the way from Berlin to meet up with me, we had a great time together, these two are ace people.
Love the way Music brings people together
