Not bad, but I did expect more. Small bar area closed off.
I was up near front and it wasn't packed.

Maybe the fact of:
Tremonti last night( who were excellent)
Sons tonight
Myles Kennedy tomorrow night( I'm not going)

May have made punters pick and choose which nights to attend.

Not a massive crowd, comfortable though with it being a warm night. Outstanding gig. Soto has an amazing voice. Bumblefoot a bit low in the mix though. Downside the limelight with their usual shitty ideas of closing the bar early for their club night. Then getting into kds for a pint which is unusual, a good dose of customer service training anout that place wouldnt go a miss, they need to remember not everyone they are dealing with are dribbling students

Great gig but no need for a 10min keyboard solo. Unreal seeing these players do their thing. Hopefully they return

As others have said , great gig , amazing musicianship.they seemed to be really enjoying themselves.not a big crowd ,there were big empty spaces in front of me ( maybe I need a stronger deodorant).concerning the bar staff the one who served me could have been friendlier.walked passed me twice and then just looked at me.I guess that was my cue to order.

Does anyone really expect anything other than disgruntled begrudging service from these venues?

Over 400 at the Belfast gig.....
I think that's very good, no?
Despite the names, the band is new...but maybe that doesn't really mean anything??
Summer/festival season/gig saturation etc. I was expecting less to be there actually. Maybe I'm too pessimistic?
