Crowded House – revisited

I went to see Crowded House last night at Newcastle City Hall – see here for the first post on this.

We all really enjoyed the gig, Crowded House were awesome not only did they perform well but they put on a good show and created a lot of crowd interaction making everyone feel a part of the gig.

Crowded HouseThe same couldn’t be said for the support band, Connan Mockasin, who just weren’t my cup of tea (as well as a lot of other people’s judging by the amount of people that got up and went back downstairs to the bar area). I’m sure they have a good following – otherwise they wouldn’t be touring with Crowded House, but they were just a bit too gimmicky for me. But don’t let my thoughts on the band put you off – have a listen to them and make your own mind up.

Hopefully Crowded House will be back again soon, though the last time they were up here in the north east was in ’94 at Whitley Bay Ice Rink so I’m not holding my breath for any time soon.

Crowded House

I’m going to Newcastle City Hall to see Crowded House tonight with my girlfriend and parents – should be good!

We’re going for a meal before the gig too, hope the support band is good.

It seems I’ve grown up listening to Crowded House, they were always on in the car when travelling down, or up, to my aunty’s house and I seem to know every song. They were on in the car that much that I used to complain about it.

I remember one day complaining about it, and my parents saying, “You’ll like them when you’re older.” and do you know what? They were right!

Really looking forward to the gig tonight – just hope the City Hall isn’t as warm as it has been the last few times I’ve been.
