Transformation was awesome. I agree with everyone saying that it is the best of the three new ones. Drip Drip was good. I have a recording of it that I'll have to see if it's worth posting. Nautical Disaster was unbelievable as usual, especially in the middle of NOIS.
Crowd wasn't great and Gord barely spoke to the crowd but it was still an awesome show. The Hip is always a safe bet for a great show!
wow. i am glad i didn't pay $70+ to go.... yet another standard hip setlist. seriously... it is time to retire at least half of those songs.
Tickets were $85 taxes & fees in and they were still selling them at the door. 14 hours later and I'm not sure it was worth it. I'm sad to say that. It was my 25th show and was lacking something. As mentioned before, that room at Casino NB couldn't possibly have better sound - I was dead center right in front of the soundboard and, at times, I closed my eyes and couldn't believe how crisp & perfect it was. They are & will continue to attract big artists. I saw Billy Ray on the far left of the stage just before the show so I yelled: "Billy Ray, same set list as Ontario?" He heard me and emphatically shook his head no. He must have misunderstood the question.
Anyhoo, Gord didn't say anything to the crowd at all but my eyes were mostly on Robbie & Gord S. - they were fucking on fire last night. The setlist was, again, meh. Transformation WAS awesome. Streets & Drip were meh in my opinion. I REALLY liked Lonely End of the Rink being thrown in as the encore opener. The end of Fully was really good & extended. In View needs to be retired.
On a scale of 1 to 10 I'd give the show a 6 but because of the sound I'll bump it up to 7.
