14-Sep-2004

I keep meaning to write in this thing, and I keep getting caught up in other stuff. The last two weeks have been extremely eventful, so I’ll have to break it down piece by piece.

Phil Collins was fan-fucking-tastic. Seriously. It was a greatest hits show, and that got no complaints from me whatsoever. My favourite bit was when he sang “In The Air Tonight”. It was his first solo hit, back in the early 80s, and still one of his best songs. Anyway, the song is structured unusually, with its “oddly droning intro, tension-filled vocals, and liberating percussion bursts”. During the initial slow portion, he was pacing around the stage, wearing a headset mic (odd, because he had a handheld mic before this). As the song neared the climactic percussion sequence, he was walking closer to a drum set, and people realised what was gonna happen, and boy did we scream. And when he got to that part of the song, he grabbed the sticks, sat down, and started banging away, and I screamed like a little girl. Best concert ever!! And Yanni is in November!! (Yes, I said Yanni. )
