    26th October. The Royal Albert Hall. Dead Can Dance.

    Playing together and touring for the first time in 20+ years, & this is the only UK gig.
    I somehow managed great seats (it sold out real quick)
    Surrounded by folks from all over Europe dressed somewhat 'Goth', but not as dark.. they were determined to enjoy the night.
    Pretty much the whole of the new album was presented, along with a fair smattering of those from the past.
    Brendan had some of his own solo tracks (of which most, at least for me, did not fit the gig at all, but ymmv) and Lisa had a couple of hers - and to be honest, they were just amazing. The track from Gladiator went down a storm.
    One item in particular will live with me forever, and was one I just never expected to experience live.
    'The Host Of Seraphim' was one of the most moving pieces of music I have ever seen / heard / experienced. Nobody wanted it to end. Everyone just sat transfixed until the very final note finally faded - then went wild.
    I have never seen anyone have so much (complete) confidence in a voice.
    I would dearly love to know what she 'sees' in her mind to 'sing' those lyrics?
    How do you memorise them?
    As the concert came to an end - the encore over, then another, and then one with Lisa & a keyboard player - possibly the most shambolic end to such an amazing concert ever?
    Wile it was not unwelcome to have 'another' track - it did feel like the ending was not particularly well thought through - especially as this was almost cetainly a one off.
    Happy to have attended, and I have another 'moment in life' to treasure.

    Just Luka Bloom. Alone with a guitar. A great evening, great songs, good singing and the best guitar sound in the universe.

    Friend of mine was at that too - he was raving about the percussion player.

    Friday - Wilko Johnson (with Dylan Howe on drums and Norman Watt-Roy on bass).

    Saturday - The John Otway Big Band.

    Both great.

    Efterklang and the Northern Sinfonia last night at The Barbican - just stunning.
    The rearrangements of the the new album were beautiful, and the encore of Modern Drift had me thinking it was a bit dusty in there.
    One of the the great live bands of the last few years.

    14th, 16th and 18th October in Toronto and Montreal, saw Rush on the Clockwork Angels tour, complete with string ensemble - they're playing as well as ever and even changing their setlists these days - really enjoyable!

    Tonight it's my first experience of Muse at the MEN, decent seats too.

    Malcolm Middleton, The Tunnels, Aberdeen. First half was with a band playing the Human Don't be Angry album. Second half was solo with acoustic guitar doing back catalogue songs. Pretty clear which part went down better - second half was a treasure.

    Also very impressed by how when he had finished his set he grabbed his coat and headed towards the exit with the rest of us, although perhaps he was hoping to flog a couple more CDs to the departing fans!

    The night before was the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra playing Duke Ellington at the Music Hall, bit of a contrast, almost as enjoyable.

    12th Oct Susanna Mälkki conducting the Helsinki Phil at their new music centre - Saariaho, Orion and MAhler Titan - with a front row seat just over the precussion - brilliant.

    14th Oct Organ concert in St Micheal's, Turku (Finland) followed by Handel's Jephta in the Cathedral.

    A great weekend away from home.

    Went to see Jack White at Alexandra palace last night. Brilliant performance and still the best rock performer I can think of right now. The sound was pretty good but the venue is a soulless toilet. I loathe it. Jacks band (the boys) were outstanding, esp drummer and keyboard player.

    Anyone thnking of going to the remaining gigs, dont think twice, just go.

    Roberto Fonseca at Ronnie Scott's last night. Stupendous - two show sellout. Drummer broke the bass drum pedal during his solo
