Camel (28/10/13) - Triumphant return of a Prog legend
When Andy Latimer was diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, it really looked as if their last tour in 2003 was indeed going to be their last. But he seems to have made an excellent recovery, and returned to the stage to a tumultuous welcome from the packed-out hall. He has gathered together some excellent musicians for this tour, including long-term collaborator Colin bass, and all of them really did justice to the music. It was well-advertised in advance that they were going to play their album the Snowgoose in its entirety, which they did superbly. This formed the first half of the gig, and they then returned after the interval to perform highlights from most of their other albums, pretty much in chronological order. They returned for the inevitable encore (they definitely deserved it!), which featured Lady Fantasy and a new song (confusingly ALSO called Never Let Go), which he dedicated to the memory of Pete Bardens, in a poignant tribute.

Eric Johnson (15/04/13) - Like the curates egg
Sound balance was dreadful. There is no denying the guy can play like a virtuoso but the balance was wrong. The bass player was good but tried to hog the limelight too much and you couldnt really hear the drums that well. The quieter and acoustic numbers were good . the rockier numbers sounded fuzzy and confused. Im glad I went but came away a little disapointed
