MANCHESTER , ENGLAND , SO-SO GIG

Post by exiled yorkie » Thu Sep 16, 2004 11:56 am

Well I flew back to england (i live in jersey) for the manchester gig (im from yorkshire so this was a good excuse to go home for a family holiday).

I have to say, I was a little disappointed the sound was off and the boys seemed to be going through the motions that night. I had great seats and enjoyed the pregig get together, but felt a little bit flat by the gig.

The Manchester Online reviewer didn't seem to think much of the show either.

It figures the critic wasn't a Rush fan. We need someone like us to ged into the music biz as a sleeper, and just give them a hundred star performance. I've seen all the concerts in my state since the Presto tour, and I haven't seen them put on too long of a show, too much music, or anything short of a fantastic show. Bloody Hell on them!

There are very few critics who are Rush fans. Oddly enough, the critic for Salt Lake City's largest newspaper is a Rush fan and gave the R30 concert a glowing rewiew.

I still stick to my theory that the majority of music critics are actually failed musicians themselves and their failure was due to lack of talent. Hence their criticism of Rush - they're jealous.

Neil made that claim to a Rolling Stone writer once. He retorted in his article that they weren't failed musicians... they were failed writers!
