Highlight of the set for me was 'Nobody Wierd Like Me'. They've still got it when they want it!
After seeing the last half of Thundercat's set I was worried about the sound. From where I was sat the drummers kit sounded like it had several differing bass drums instead of toms.
Yes PA subs are amazing these days, but just because you can doesn't mean you should. Thunderous mush, and dull anyway, like being on hold to a call centre.
Then Anderson Paak came on. Blew me away. Sooo much energy from all performers and good sound too. Solid, crisp drum kit with every part distinguishable. Never heard of him/them but thoroughly enjoyed it. Top class entertainers.
Chilis, I thought, had found their way again. Anthony's voice was on form, probably more so than I've ever heard it live. John's BVs were good too, none of that shrieking that used to happen far too often.
The whole band just appeared to be having fun again.
The sound for the Chilis was great from where I was sat. It's a huge stadium so won't be like a small indoor venue but it was on the whole very good.
Yes at a big gig you need screens for everyone to see what's happening on stage, but they put on a fantastic show with special effects on the screens. The centre screen which flowed over the stage was brilliant. Whether their doing or the stadiums, I don't know, but it really added to the show.
I thoroughly enjoyed it.
