Title: Surprise in soundchecks...
Post by: Stewart on May 22, 2015, 12:56:10 pm
Not sure if you lot have heard this yet, but they've now soundchecked Losing It twice...

Thinking is they will do it a special shows if they can get a live violinist.

For those that doubt this, there is a video of the Austin soundcheck :-)

why is everyone excited about this?  Because it's a rarity I assume, as there's about 100 songs I'd rather hear before this...

Maybe, but its a virgin song, its a bit different, and there is every chance it might mean something to one or more of the band

They should definitely do it.  It's from the 80s.  End of.*



* Not the end of the 80s, obvs...

I'd personally spunk all over the stage if they played it live at a gig I was at... End of...

On the subject of Losing It - I stumbled across this last night:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pmYsvy3BtSc

They are playing RatCon East this weekend. Possibly the most authentic tribute I've seen. Xanadu gets the full double neck treatment!

Blech!

One of our friends over the pond stated 'if they don't play Losing It I'm going to kill myself'. Plonker. I'm with you Stew, would much prefer to watch Geddy ducking a jizz arrow.

Rumoured to be getting played tonight with Ben Mink, not long to wait then...
Title: Re: Surprise in soundchecks...
Post by: Thailand Express on June 20, 2015, 02:16:23 am
And play it they did!  Just sat up and witnessed it live, gotta love the internet 8)

Dropped the Wreckers and snuck it in just before Subdivisions.  Sounded like a storming version despite the ropey feed.

The chap who was tweeting the rumour yesterday was also saying they are definitely adding further shows, let's hope he's right twice!

I've always been pretty ardent that they shouldn't play that live because of how perfect the album version is, but my mind was completely changed after seeing the video of it. Unbefeckinglievable! Green with envy at the lucky few who got to witness that in the arena.

Really good

Makes me even more perplexed by the utter slop bucket that is most of set 1 when they can pull this little gem out of the vaults and do such a good job of it

Where is Afterimage, Cold Fire, Chemistry, The Weapon etc {insert your own mostly ignored favourites here}

Set 1 was pretty decent on the Friday ACC gig I thought seeing it was a retrospective... really pleasant surprise

Losing It just played again in Newark with Jonathan Dinklage from the Clockwork Angels Ensemble (I think I read an interview with him where he said he could play it, so maybe he's realised a long term ambition there 8) )...
