2019-12-07 Wembley Arena - London, UK
Another great night from the boys

Really enjoyed Rick's preshow - managed to shake the great man's hand afterwards

I thought the Drift stuff was a bit hit & miss to be honest - although Border Country for me, was the highlight of the evening. Will be glad when TMO is dropped from the set - although an obvious crowd pleaser, I am so tired of it

Generally a good crowd & surprised to see near all seating taken up - loved the woman dancing in the front row seats to the left of the stage - apart from the amount of weed being smoked , only other negative was the (mostly) woman standing and TALKING the whole night - just f**k off down the pub if you just want to gossip all evening!!

Overall a thoroughly enjoyable night

Re: DRIFT Live - London, Amsterdam, Antwerp
We must have been near each other, I said thanks to Rick and shook his hand after the Drift set!
The woman dancing to the left of the stage is a friend of mine, seeing her dancing put a smile on my face whenever I looked up there!
Still deciding how I felt about last night compared to Antwerp and Amsterdam...

Re: DRIFT Live - London, Amsterdam, Antwerp
I too got me a quick Rick handshake, haha. I love the cube of lights hanging above the sound desk. We got there around 6:01pm and it was fun wondering around while the place was nearly empty, having a good nosy at all the tech. First proper UW gig for me since the Roundhouse in 2010 and first time seeing them since Bestival in 2015. Great night, wife (who is a poerty/folk person) was thoroughly impressed too. Spent first half of the proper set near the front/middle, then we went to the bar (13 quid for two pints?!??!) and spent the last half near the desk again, sound wasn't great there (all bass and treble and no mid) but plenty of space to jump around like loonies. Tried not to get annoyed at the number of people trying to film entire songs, I took a handful of photos myself but geez, put your phone away and try enjoying the moment -

edit: STAR went down really well, especially for a new tune, and Karl appeared to remember all the words, which was itself quite impressive

Re: DRIFT Live - London, Amsterdam, Antwerp
gonna sound like a crank beyond my 33 years but I get irritated about that too. not only b/c the phones can be bright and they block your view but also I get worried about knocking into someone and accidentally breaking their phone. besides I am pretty sure that nobody ever really watches those videos after the show, like come on you just cannot capture the vibe of a show with a cell phone, what you get is a bunch of flashing lights and blown out bass sounds and if you want that you can just watch a zillion other concert videos on YouTube
