They had a fantastic setlist (classic oldies and also the good ones from 2032), they were really nice when I got to meet them, and the animation in the background was really good too! One of the better show's I've been to.

Did they start later than announced, and how long was the show - depending on these two questions I can know whether I'll miss the last train back home or not. Thanks in advance! Big smile

I suppose there were no opening acts - that's good for me and my problem.

seen zem in Terville the 5th of November. North east of France. They were good, as usual. It was the first time i saw Steve Hillage. Very modest, great guitarist. I had already seen them at the Nancy Jazz Pulsation festival some ten years ago. And before that, i went to see Daevid Allen in a bar in Nilvange, playing with his band. I met him in the toilets, this day. I can't say if he has a big one.
