I have a front row center seat, and I'll be posting phone cam pics during the set on my facebook page

(There's a few of Frost* too.. but please ignore the other oddball uploads!)

Let's ROCK!
Full marks to Sir Slug of the Land for sharing.  :D

Nick's vox was a bit low at times

This is an interesting tidbit of info. So, he not worked up the pretty tough drumparts BUT also helped on backing vocals? I already knew he was very talented (just listen to the early Spock's Beard records and I respect him very much for delivering the baby Kevin Gilbert couldn't i.e. Shaming Of The True) but man, this guy is just too talented.

You do know he's the lead singer of Spock's Beard now right?

Frostbeard.... now there's a supergroup.


Thanks to all so far for the news and photos: do keep them coming. It was a wrench to miss this one, and it all helps.

If talent were people, Nick would be China.  Actually that's one of the things I was thinking about watching that show - that could have been simply the most talented group I've ever seen!

As to the low vox thingie, it might have just been where I was, I wasn't knocking anything at all :)  I think he might have been going falsetto instead of belting some of the harmonies out, maybe that's what I heard.  I've probably just been listening to too much Rewiring Genesis  :)


...and I'm still cracking up thinking about those band member intros!

Yep, I know but to me every SB album from Feeling Euphoria has been quite dissappointing. Matter of fact, SB post V has been uninteresting to me.

Black Light Machine and Wonderland are up there as well!
Storming performances for all three. Lovely stuff!

Stunning work - thanks to all.

Seems the rear screen was used for a mix of close-up video of the band and some other material too. Looking forward to hearing all about it.

Marvellon!  :D

Hyperventilate!!! Have the boys ever played tighter?!!! fanbloomintastic.  :D

With due respect to Andy.... this is I'm sure all due to a bit more time for rehersal.

RAWK!

I just got home and am completely exhausted, so I'll have to save my full comments and photos for later, but for now I give you - The Set List:

Hyperventilate
The Forget You Song
Wonderland
Falling Down (omfg)
Black Light Machine
EIMA
Snowman 3.0 (or is it 4 by now?)
No Me No You
Pocket Sun
Saline
Band Intros  :mrgreen:
Dear Dead Days
Milliontown

Encore:
The Other Me

So, "Toys" was absent, but I'm pretty sure I can still hear Dec's sigh of relief and, honestly, I can't see anyone complaining about it with that brilliant 2 hour performance.

Hats off to Mr. Nick "Duh"Virgilio for taking just two days of full band practice and playing Frost* like a friggin' beast.  Be glad, oh so glad, that this was recorded for posterity.  Amazing.

More later.
...and I can feel the world is turning...turn around

Thanks, gr8gonzo.

I hardly dare ask - but the question that I think will be on everyone's lips is: did the drummer play the oboe solo in Milliontown?

That is indeed a question that needs answering....another is, how cool is it that there was new stuff - TFYS, FD, S(v3), DDD?
I wonder how much can we hope to see in the DT support slot?

Fantastic to see so many good reactions to the band. Frost have it all; great songs, great musicians and ten legs between then. Well done bruv and the chaps.
