Well, what can I say ... !!

That was an amazing sold out concert in a great venue - really quite intimate.

I have a new genre to describe Porcupine Tree -
Heavy Psychedelia
. Big emphasis on the heavy too.

A great sound - loud but so clear !

The gig opened with a 30 minute set by The Engineers.
Porcupine Tree came on to rapturous applause and commenced the play the whole of The Incident (CD 1). This sounds so much better live & with the video graphics brings the whole thing to life in a way a CD just cannot.
This was a special concert for them as it's the end of the current tour and the last time they'd play The Incident for a while, said Steven.

A 10 minute break followed which was exactly 10 mins, with a count down timer on screen - nice touch !!

The remainder of the concert was a mixture of old & new tracks, with I think a change to the normal set list as a nod to their first appearance at Glasgow's King Tut's Wah Wah Hut, back in the mid 90's - they played Stars Die.

I think the set list was as follows (I've probably missed some out !):
Start of Something Beautiful
Russia on Ice / Anesthetize
Stars Die
Sound of Muzak
Trains
Normal
Bonnie the Cat

I you get a chance to see them - go for it - they're awesome !!!† Grin Grin Grin

Strangely I cannot modify my original post !!

I should add that The Incident tour still has a few dates to run & Steve's reference must have been relating to the last gig in the UK .. next stop India !!

Kneel and Disconnect
Drawing the Line
The Incident

Many thanks for the info., Jim. Sounds like a fantastic concert. I love the idea of a 'countdown clock' for the interval. Cool

PS Sorry to hear that you couldn't edit your original post. I'll take a look.

Ah .. it's a time limited thing !! Cheers !!

I forgot to add that Gavin Harrison was doing some outstanding drumming during the concert - the track that really stood out was Mother & Child Divided.

By "heavy", do you mean "dark"? I find the lyrics to be somewhat dark, and while I'm one who generally chooses music for the music instead of the lyrics, Porcupine Tree's lyrics go rather nice with their music.

Or do you mean "heavy" as in "metal"

I thought that site was a really good find - how many times does one go to a gig and never remember all the tracks played or in what order !!!  Grin Grin

Yeah I thought the attached vids were a brilliant idea - like being at the concert again (almost) !!

I really meant heavy as in metal.

But I can see what you mean about lyrics !!
As Steve has said - "He states music is a way for him to channel all his negative feelings, and "an exorcism of those elements within", finding it "easier to write songs about the negative side of the world than it is about the happy side of the world."
