    Epic and beautiful. My heart has been pounding since maters of war. Atmosphere rose up and down with the pace of the show. Really really lovely. Possibly the best solo show I've seen to date. 

    Only downside was the shortage of posters

  • drfoxdrfox Posts: 39
    Great gig, particularly enjoyed the Into the Wild songs. The songs with the string quartet were fabulous as well.  Only downsides were that there were quite a few people shouting when Eddie was trying to speak (probably had a few too many drinks getting there so early to wipe the venue dry of posters - frustratingly they all had gone when I had arrived and may need to now fork out over £100 on eBay.....)

    'I'm gonna borrow some chords from Stone Gossard' (or words to that effect). Wow, just wow!
    Those were the words. I know it had been played three times already at other shows, but with the quiet yet vibrant presence of the strings, Black sounded divine. Yes, divine. That's the word to use for performances like this. Even Stone would've had goosebumps.

    Night 1 was pretty raw and emotional. You could sense that EV needed to get some things off his chest.. I think that then allowed him to rip into night 2 when he seemed more 'playful' and relaxed. 
    I think the red limo quartet could have found a new employer!

    What an amazingly epic night! Masters of War, Parting Ways, EWBTCIAST, Black. Oh my God, Black was spine-tingling! 

    Loved every minute of it, apart from a couple of boozed up douchebags sat behind us who wouldn't shut up! Talking when EV was talking and throughout his songs. Why even bother coming? But hey ho, that's life! 

    You could really sense that Ed was feeling the Love. The guy got a standing ovation when he came on,  before he had even sung a word! 

    Thanks Eddie.

    Epic and beautiful. My heart has been pounding since maters of war. Atmosphere rose up and down with the pace of the show. Really really lovely. Possibly the best solo show I've seen to date. 

    Only downside was the shortage of posters

    I saw several people buying a load (half a dozen) at a time, so this might have been one of the reasons why. Perhaps it should be limited to just a one or two per person. I've seen night 1 poster on ebay for over $200. Not good.

    Epic show though. Black with the string quartet one of the highlights. Ed in a great mood. Still buzzing even after 3 hours sleep.

    Black with stings was stunning! Genuinely felt so more epic. As a first timer seeing Eddie solo... do his shows get recorded to buy like pear jam sets? As I need that version of black in my life! Stunning gig alround, other than some horrendous woman refusing to sit down and get off her phone 4/5 rows from the front on stage right. She had fun, those behind her not so much...

    Still buzzing from that show. First time seeing Ed solo and I absolutely loved it. The standing ovation when he came out was awesome and it was good to see him joking and laughing. Loved it all so i cant pick a favourite. Was also my first time hearing Glen's music - not sure where i have been but im definitely converted. Loved the string quartet- they should get a permanent touring job as they are awesome.

    Only dislikes were the idiots shouting out ed's name and those who cant possibly go 2 hours without documenting their life on camera. It was really disrespectful especially as this was a specific request. Other than that EPIC

    What a show!!  Completely agree with the comments regarding Black - Just magical.  

    As a huge Clash fan and whilst in London I had ensured my training route of the day went past the Joe Strummer Underpass and I paused for a moment or two to reflect and pay thanks. Holy shit - Should I Stay or Should I Go performed by another personal icon of mine, another of those moments when my world stops for a while and will never be forgotten.  Finally, Ed rocking the stage falling into the crowd during Hard Sun, where have all the years gone??

    It was the most beautiful version of Black I have ever heard

    I second that! It was so beautiful. The whole night wasamazing, Eddie seemed so happy & playful after the sadness of the night before.
