The band hadn't performed with Edwin in 18 years, so these shows were doubly special as the celebration of an album milestone along with getting to hear the songs sung live by the original vocalist after almost two decades.
They pulled out all the stops with amazing production. The lighting was incredible and varied through the show. The elaborate stage set included video screens that also changed things up during the night.
The band sounded and played with perfection, and Edwin's voice sounded so clear and strong. The audience was as excited as you'd expect, with everyone singing along, their voices filling The Phoenix. This was a show I never thought I would see since it had been so long since Edwin sang with the band and with Scenery and Fish being a desert island album for me. In short, it was incredible.
And so gently we go, into the night, our ears ringing after as close to a perfect concert as anyone could hope for. The performance of Scenery and Fish followed by an encore of the best tunes on Dig, all performed with Edwin back on the mic. Magical.
