[live review]Richard Ashcroft,Dubai,2011/10/14 - the verve - verve中文网
 
Review by Jes


Okay, I'm going to be honest. He was INCREDIBLE tonight, the best I've ever seen him play solo ... this was the Dickie I've always loved

first of all, the boring bit ... the setlist, and it's very predictable

Lucky Man
Space and Time
History
On your own
Sonnet
Drugs don't work
A song for the lovers
Break the night with colour
Bittersweet symphony

Yep, completely predictable but he played them with a passion I have not seen for a long time.

I was right at the front but I was surprised at how jammed it was. There was probably about 2,000 people at the party, but most of them surged to the stage to see him play. He was pretty nervous at first and being somewhat obnoxious, and I turned to a friend and pointed out it was that kind of crap that made me dislike him.

But after Space and Time (which was incredible - see below), he was about to do Sonnet when someone shouted for History and he smiled and said something like "that's what I'm talking about" and changed his set. After On Your Own (which was again requested) he mentioned that he had been pricking himself before the show but now he was happy that there were so many people that knew (in his own words) the Verve's greatest album

After that, his confidence was sky high and at the end of the set he promised to come back and do a full gig.

I had a camera with me but only took a couple of photos. There were a couple next to me who flmed every song and they told me they were putting them on YouTube so it will be there.

Some moments:

- During History, he didn't sing the line "i've got a skinful of dope" ... instead, he just smiled wryly to the audience
- also, he introduced one song with "before I play the following, I want to make it clear, and it must be very clear, absolutely clear to everyone, the drugs don't work"
- someone, and I swear it was not me, called for This Could Be My Moment ... he laughed and said whilst he would admit to writing that song, he would never sing it in public
- Space and Time was sublime ... catch it on YouTube

All in all, it was an amazing performance. My friends here know how big a Verve fan I am and were patient enough with me to stand at the front. But all of them admitted afterwards it was the best live performance they had ever seen in Dubai.
