Amazing - apart from the sound
It was amazing to hear KC live for the second time - my first time was Shepherds Bush Empire in 1996. Everything was awe-inspiring, the venue, the staging with the 3 drum sets upfront, the lineup, the tracklist - I loved the version of Islands, Lizard and even Easy Money which is not normally my favourite track. But, unfortunately the sound left me frustrated. Maybe I was in a blackspot (I was almost directly in front of the band at the front of the middle tier level so would not have thought so) but it was as if every instrument, apart from Tony Levin's basses and Jakko Jakszyk's vocals, was competing with each other for volume and they all seemed to be saturated which meant that most of the nuances were completely lost in a wall of sound. And for me, worst of all were the snare drums which overpowered everything else everytime they were hit... and this applied to all 3 snare drums! This did not ruin the gig for me but it could have been so much more enjoyable.

Awesome
Thinking back to when I first saw KC in '68/69 and now again in 2018. So much has changed in the world, some for the better some for the worse. But rest assured we can rely on KC to clear away the dark and gloom with musical performance the like I have never experienced before. From the opening bars to the closing applause we experienced the best live and original music I've ever heard. I've been to over 2400 of live concerts in the last 50 years and for me this was the pinnacle. Simply the most awesome concert ever. Eight fantastic musicians at the top of their game playing as one. Thank you, Robert, Jakko, Bill, Tony, Mel, Pat, Jeremy and Gavin. A night I will never forget. It was joyous.
