I think that The Good, The Bad and the Queen album is my favourite of the last decade but I thought my chance of seeing it performed may have passed so I was all over it when the tickets were released for this gig at the Coronet.
The concert was a one off show benefit gig for the launch of the new Greenpeace Rainbow Warrior ship.
It was pretty much what I expected, the album played in it’s entirety in order with a brief encore. It was a brilliant show as you might expect from such a stellar line up, the highlights for me being a musician playing the wistling part on Soldiers Tale with a bow and saw and a version of the Gorrilaz Melancholy Hill during the encore.
I think the Coronet may be officially have a new favourite music venue, nice size and only 20 minuites from my home.
