I was at Manchester Apollo on Monday, and i thought it was a BRILLIANT gig :D I am just a PSBs *hits* fan, i don't klnow the albums as such, so this was ideal as it was hit-arama !!! I'd love to go to another show, but can't coz of work commitments :mad:

Chris played quite a few things live, but aye, most of it is just from the original multitracks. Previously they (i.e. Pete Gleadall) reprogrammed it for each tour, but they've gone down the Erasure route now ;)

I didn't think much of the dancers though!

I saw them last friday in Copenhagen and I thought they were brilliant :-) They had some sound problems in the beginning, but once that was sorted it was just fab. The show-side of things though seemed a little discount, compared to previous tours, but the music was great. Highpoint was Integral, who kicks some serious booty live and I thought it was cool how the spelling of Minimal was mixed into S h o p p i n g. Also nice to see Chris Lowe (unlike Vince Clarke) actually work for a living on stage.

You obviously didn't notice Vince a) playing guitar on a lot of the songs on the Nightbird tour (as well as the acoustic shows) and b) Rapping during...errr...Rapture :D

cs15 great song ruined by a terrible video.

Intergral is great live and i think it should have been a single.

Yes it would have made a great single far better than the NUMBingly boring track they released after Minimal!

Dubliners be advised that tickets go on sale this Friday for the Pets playing at the Irish Museum Of Modern Art in October. I'm supposed to be at a Christmas Market in Germany on that day :(

Have you seen the new PSB video for Integral? It's available to view on their website. Love the mix.

Woo Hoo!! Have fun - I saw them in a large venue but I reckon it works better in a smaller venue. Still a good show though.

O.M.G. - they were PHENOMENAL!!! The Cubist costumes and set, the songs (love the new album!), everything. Way better than last year's show.

Only mild bit of disappointment - they didn't perform "The Way It Used to Be." And, they don't seem to ever perform my longtime fave, "Love Comes Quickly."

@Panzermensch - I loved the overall design concept. Visually, it worked. And the music set was a full-on dance jam. Only 1 or 2 slow songs. Hardly any talking (which is good, since that meant no political rants).

Went to see PSB in Copenhagen last night and I can only agree with others, what a show! Absolutely brilliant stage set up and performance. Excellent set list, even if there was too many slow songs and no instrumental ending of Go West. But I loved the versions of Suburbia and West End Girls and they even threw in the x-mas song as 2nd encore, including dancing trees and fake snow :) Good to see Chris Lowe working hard for his money behind his bank of keyboards and drumpads. Also said a quick hello to the bands lightning director, no other than Rob Sinclair!

They are playing the SECC in Glasgow next Thursday night.
Cant wait!
About 10 friends and I are all going along to see them.
Should be a killer gig with a great atmosphere -Glasgow audiences are normally up for a good sing along.

Roll on Thursday.....

Hey, just wanted to put my oar in about the recent gig at the O2 on 21st December....Yes I know its late, but I am enjoying posting again.

Took my parthers Mother to this gig, as a surprise Christmas present and I wasn't sure whether she liked them or not!

Well she is 57 and she new all the old songs and the new songs, she loved. I have to say that this was a fantastic night the PSB did not disapoint and I look forward so much to a possible league date at this amazing arena.

PS.. The lighting rig on the steel city tour would have shamed the PSB at the O2.
