Newcastle Academy, Newcastle, United Kingdom (2006)
Live - Newcastle Carling Academy
What a gig!!!!
To see the boys in this kind of intimate venue is just amazing. Opening with Crystal and then into Regret the floor was honestly like a trampoline. Sumner sang and played as well as i have ever seen him and Hooky lorded it over the audience, playing it up as only he can (until one of his strings broke halfway through the set - but i'll forgive him that)
Other highlights were undoubtedly These days and Transmission. But the climax to the gig was spectacular.
BLT, Temptation, Perfect Kiss (with Bernard maybe purposely - although i doubt it, missing out the last verse) and into Blue Monday.
Then an Encore of Shadowplay which i havnt heard them do live before and then total Mayhem broke loose as the lads went in to LWTUA.
Only real dissapointment was the poor sound quality during the verses of Krafty (the bass on the keyboard drowning out the Lyrics). Never mind, other than that was absolutely fantastic.

Hope you enjoy them as much as i did
