Gogol delivered, as expected.
Blinding weekend all in all that.

Opeth tomorrow for the Sorceress UK tour! Pretty pumped as I've glimpsed the setlist and have never heard Blackwater Park live.

I have :)

In fact, if you pause it at 18 seconds in, you can see me clear as day, right hand side of Mikael's elbow next to a rather tidy Welsh lassie who I met on the day.

Figures you'd show up Ian. You can't mention Opeth on this forum without you rubbing it in about that anniversary gig. :P

It was immense, by the way. Incredible set. The final three songs were Hessian Peel, Blackwater Park into Deliverance for encore. A ludicrously intense 30 minutes.

Yeah I missed them this time around sadly - the decision not to play in London was an odd one.

And sorry, can never help rubbing that one in :D

I assume they missed London because the big Wembley arena show they did last year was technically part of the Sorceress tour and that was their only UK date.

Could be - I missed that one too, I don't do big venues and make very few exceptions to that rule :)

Indeed it was. Russian Circles, Red Fang and Mastodon all played their fucking balls off.

The only fly in the ointment was London Underground's utter clusterfuck afterwards, making me get the 01:05 train back - bed was not reached until 02:30. Thankfully I took today off work in advance, but my gigging buddy is currently staggering through the day on 2 hours sleep.
