|Alice's String Quartet|
Right at the front this time, courtesy of getting a row A seat, I think this was the show where I had a friend take my camera in for me, but then the security people wouldn't let me use it grrr. Another great show, got some dollars this time, but still no beads. There Is Still Time.......... Can't remember if this was where the link between Feed my Frankenstein and the covers changed, instead of voice over man, Alice came on stage and actually talked to us about the Hollywood Vampires, and how he was the only one left. Or maybe that was Wembley :)
Afterwards we all went off to Steve's gaff down the road a bit, to catch some ZZZZ's ready for Wembley the next day.
Met up with Sunila, and Sarah Stacey (great to see you again, my friends!!) as we waited in the queue - no seats on the floor here, standing room only. Although I did actually buy a seated ticket accidentally - off to the side of the stage, about 4 rows up (just about the same place I was when I saw the Floyd, incidentally). So I was just hanging around to meet up with friends. And zombies, of course, a lot of them appeared a couple of hours before the show :). They were great, what a fabulous gig that must be, would love to do that!!! One of them got very close to me and went Grrrroooooowwwwwwwwwwww(or something) into my face, and then totally spoilt the effect buy stepping on my toe, and saying, 'oo sorry', LOLOLOLOL.
Luckily for me, Sunila's friend Rob had a standing tic, and was prepared to swap with me - so I got to go in with my friends.....
Steve went round to the other side as there were 2 entrances (jeez, I HATE that) and between us we managed to get pretty near the front...Being Wembley, the stage was much higher than usual, so being right at the front didn't neccesarily guarantee the best view.. . . . . . . .Still pretty good tho :)
More changes tonight, instead of original Voice Over man, or Alice, we had a different scenario. Apparently, Alice was supposed to have 'died' onstage during the 'Feed My Frankenstein' transition, and come back to pay tribute to his drinking buddies, but, as nobody actually got it, they made the voice over a bit more obvious, whilst Alice was seemingly trapped in the graveyard.
Same four covers, Break On Through, Revolution, (with Lennon Glasses), Foxy Lady, My Generation, but the set list order changed, with I'm Eighteen / Under My Wheels / Poison / School's Out, at the end, rather than just finishing with Schools Out.
Excellent show, the band just get better and better. Alice threw the Caffiene cup out towards the German twins, Andrea and Claudia, but it didn't quite go far enough and smashed on the ground between the stage and the barrier. Bloody security guys wouldn't give us any of it, meh. Still no beads....but I have enough dollars to paper my room :) And so to Nottingham.
