This review is from: Live Under Blackpool Lights [DVD] (DVD)
This is going to be one amazing dvd. I was at the gig on the saturday night (the dvd is filmed over 2 nights) and I saw a few people at the front with cameras. At the time i was hoping they were filming it to bring it out on dvd but so much time has passed since then (last january) I had completely forgot about it until a friend told me.
The set was brilliant, quite a lot of songs from the first album, which suits me because I think that is the best of the lot. But all the classics were played aswell so it will keep those happy that only know the singles. Jacks guitar playing is mesmirising, very Jimi Hendrix-esque. Ive never seen anyone play guitar like him. Even Meg strolled to the front of the stage aswell for a bit of a song or 2.
This is by far one of the best gigs ive been to, and to add a point from the last reviewer, that floor in Blackpool is like a trampoline, it really added to the atmosphere in the hall. If you never get chance to see them live then this will show you what their all about. (though i do highly recommend you do anything you can to get a ticket to see them, bearing in mind though that youve got more chance of plaitting fog than finding a spare ticket, so you'll really have to buy this dvd!) Watching this will sway anyone to become an instant fan with their blues/rock style and Jacks extremely catchy riffs.
This is a must for any stripes fan to remind you how good these guys actually are and a must for any non-fan to show you what your missing out on. I cant recomend thid dvd enough.
