3 stars This was a relatively short concert featuring Ray Thomas in one of his last performances and the concert is for the most part pedestrian and predictable. The large World Festival Orchestra does most of the work while the band go through the motions to the adoring middle-aged fans, some who are swinging in the aisles. However, everybody appears to be having a good time responding to the band's numerous hits like Nights In White Satin, Story In Her Eyes and English Sunset. The concert does come alive during the two John Lodge songs, Isn't Life Strange and I'm Just A Singer (in a rock and roll band) when Justin Hayward opens up on his strat electric guitar and you can detect an affinity between he and John as they swerve their guitars to the music. The encore is one of their best songs, Question, which really deserved better treatment than what they gave.
