Paul Weller was in fine form in the Echo Areana last night. He banged out loads of his classic hits. Four Jam tunes, Eton Riffles, Malice, Butterfly collector and Entertainment and even the old Style council tune Shout to the Top for us old bas**rds! He even managed to squeeze in a bit of the Who's Magic Bus and a great rendition of All you need is Love (Originally by some Scouse group). With The Riffles as the support group it was a top gig and a top night!
It was the first time I have been to the Areana and I have to say its quite impressive. The acoustics in the place are great, the sound is clear as a bell! Its a very similar venue to the MEN but being smaller it gives an intimacy you don't get in the MEN and you really feel part of the occasion.
I'm still buzzin from last night and I'm totally gutted that I've got to go and do it all again next week for The Bunnymen's 30th Anniversary gig! What a blow that is!
