2022-06-25 Metronome Festival Prague CZ
Hi friends, Im here with some Underworld related content for todays show in Prague at the Metronome Festival, Prague, Czech Republic. Nick Cave, Beck and Underworld are the headliners for each day. Underworld are closing the festival on the last day.

Yesterday it was very rainy and wet. Today is sunny-partly cloudy weather. Underworld will be headlining on the main stage in an hour or so 22:30 local time (CEST) This is to my knowledge the first gig after long break caused by the pandemic. People are very excited to see Underworld, many new fans, including my girlfriend, which will provide the setlist for us all. Thank you dear. Lets give a shout to Catherine. Me personally cant attend today show because of my health - back pain and vision problems - very annoying. You know Im hardcore Underworld fan and I never missed a show in the last 20 years.

Ok some info, the festival is located in Prague (to my knowlege first gig in Prague since 2011) near very nice park called Stromovka and its really very near (just around the corner) to the place where Underworld played gig in 2008 (Cherry Pie was played at the gig btw back then), you know the show was postponed from 2007, because of Rick being ill back then. So as this show, postponed from 2020 and again from 2021 because of Covid. This era is sad, Covid, Russian invasion in Ukraine, its not easy world.

Back to the festival. Its very nice location, I saw there Radiohead in 2010. My girlfriend knows Metronome festival inside out, she worked for them. She told me that this year more stages are being put in place and less space was used, as compared to the much bigger size of the festival before the pandemic and less stages. Its interesting info. You can see on a map very crowded place. Back in 2013 (Roudnice n. Labem) and 2016 (Ostrava) festivals here in CZ it was much bigger place.
Feels very crowded if you look at the official map, its city festival, music in the city, so the space cant be much bigger you know. Even the place (Kolbenova) from 2005 Prague legendary gig, it was bigger - Dark and Long was played, it was magical and legendary standalone Underworld show, many of you messaged me in the years to come what interresting the setlist was, it was pre RiverRun era.

Ok, you are all very curious like me what will be played. Its festival show, as you know, so fans know what to expect - well known tunes, maybe something from Drift, but you never know right? Juanita maybe? Dark Train (new version from last year vinyl)? I will Kiss hopefully? Im curious. Maybe new song? (Just as 2009/10 where Between the Stars was played. I was so amazed back then)

I saw Underworld numerous times 9 or so and every moment and instance was just magical, Im personally bit sad that I cannot attend, but its the way it is. I really wish you everybody to see Underworld gig.

You know Underworld are not doing a show, not only playing and singing, they are living it, I discovered that in 2016 during King of Snake) Its 20 years since Creamfields festival and 6 years from great Glastonbury set, it was 24th of June, now its just 25th, I remember this all my friends.

This is soundcheck:

I will be back with a setlist. Now its 5 minutes to the start of the show. Lets go.
