It's my first gig of theirs so I have nothing to compare it to, I really enjoyed it but I was standing so maybe there was more of an atmosphere down the front? It went a bit mental at points and the singing of SOWK sounded like a football crowd.
I liked Tom and Tim's keyboard-off during A Bad Dream, the impromptu singing of Happy Birthday to May and the joke about Richard and the Antiques Roadshow.
The only complaint I would have is that I would have liked to have heard The Starting Line, maybe in place of Hamburg Song as it just bogs the show down and I think it is time it was put out to grass.
I did notice that there weren't songs with really high notes , and Tom stopped and winced during Bedshaped, so something obviously hurt. I think that there would have been a few more songs in the encore otherwise.
It was a shame that they didn't come out but it was understandable that they wanted to spend time with their families. I know people were disappointed that Tom went straight home afterwards but if he's still fighting this virus, it's best that he goes to bed, and it would be more unfair on all the people who are going to the rest of the tour if he lost his voice completely.
I'm sorry you didn't enjoy it though. I thought they put a lot of energy into it and there was a good atmosphere where I was standing.
