I had a seat at the tribune and felt a touch of vertigo. We're were squeezed very tight up there and luckily I brought my opera glasses, so Neil seemed a bit taller than a playmobil toy!
I've never seen Crowded House in a big venue and I had no idea what to hope for. Cherry Ghost (the support act) sounded very bad up there, so I feared for the worst ...
This wasn't a gig but a giant party! Best gig I've ever seen the boys doing and I've seen CH, Neil and Tim performing a lot over the past years!
The couple on my left took off before the encores, so I couldn't help myself and jumped up and danced until the end!
Best song: "Italian Plastic" dedicated to Paulie. I've never heard them play it live and it contains the loveliest romantic lyrics ever: "When I wake up with you - I'll be your glass of water"
I needed lots of water the next day, my voice was hoarse from singing and yelling!
Sorry I couldn't met up with any of you guys, but I had to sneak off during "Better be home soon" to catch the last tram and train home. Perhaps another time!
