Brilliant Event from Tal49, 17/11/14
What an absolutely amazing concert - Billy Idol was absolutely awesome and what a show he put on. A 2 hour extravaganza of all his old hits and fabulous new songs had an amazing time.

Band of Skulls
14/11/14
Awesome, just awesome! from Scoutman7, 17/11/14
DZ were fine, Bo Ningen - well, whatever lights your candle and overloud so distorted for their equipment, but that just made Band of Skulls sound even better. There was a really good vibe about the place from minute one - the sound really was well balanced and pretty clear - not over-amped (please take note other much better known bands), so you could actually hear the harmonies and Russells guitar really did cut through. Top marks sound crew. The Band were awesome - they just get on and play their socks off. Best gig Ive been to in years. Highlights? There are so many - I feel like 10 men, Diamonds and Pearls - they both crunched - everything just came together - thank you!

Awesome from Carly, 17/11/14
Like Midern Life is goodish but funnier. It was hilarious from start to finish. Nick Doody the support act was also brilliant.
Lykke Li

Super! from Gish, 17/11/14
I dont follow music of Lykke Li that much, just knew a few songs, but I was quite impressed with the performance, both visual and audible, I really loved how her voice sounded

True entertainment from Helen, 17/11/14
Excellent gig. Excellent musicians. My only criticism is White Wedding was not long enough! There is not enough security within the concert area though. The drunk people need controlling because they spoil it for others.

So so from Julia, 17/11/14
Expected much more, seems like the content was for mass produced fan base to make sure everyone got the humor (jokes were too obvious)
Billy Idol

simply fab from jbevans, 17/11/14
best looking 59 year old ever !!!! He has lost nothing of his voice and charisma either and him and Steve Stevens are almost like Jagger and Richards, great combination of songs new and old and really old (from Generation X days)
Yusuf Islam / Cat Stevens

fantastic night from steve, 14/11/14
After waiting 40 years to see the man live what a thrill! Yusuf/Cat gave the most wonderful show and retained all the magic and power of his fantastic creative work and performing abilities while connecting with his audience in the most positive and relaxing way. Congratulations to Alun too and the band who were superb !!! ok now for a couple of negatives ...understandably it was clearly stated that photography and recording was not allowed...pity many members of the audience could not respect this ..causing the ushers much work whizzing about (as discreetly as poss) . Also why do people need to leave their seats as early as 10 minutes into the performance {presumably for a refill) ...all very distracting and unfair to the artist and fellow concert goers. (Rant over :-)) ) Looking forward to seeing cat outside of London next time !

What Happened with the Acoustics? from Nadine, 12/11/14
My partner and I have between us seen a number of artists at the Apollo Hammersmith /eventim and it is one of our most favoured venues. However we came to see Mr Sam Smith on 7th November and were bitterly disappointed with the quality of the sound. We were only standing in the stalls fairly close to the back, in front of the bar and it may have been our location with the circles being directly above us but even still, the sound reverberated in our chests in an annoying and not pleasant manner. It truly felt that the sound/mics/speakers had not been adjusted to Sams vocal which was such a shame as we were actually pleased when his set had come to the end and we left swiftly. We stayed because we hoped that it would be adjusted but it never was. We only hope that when we return in February for Jason Mrazs return to Hammersmith that it is so completely different.
Video Games Live
02/11/14
Great music and funny too! from Bill, 11/11/14
Attended not knowing fully what to expect. Well put together show with a fair amount of throw back game music for those of us who were playing 30+ years ago. The filler group, Random Encounter, were a lot of fun. Rockin accordion, who knew?

Cat Stevens from Barans, 11/11/14
I had given up hope of ever seeing the great man live, but it was well worth all the travelling and lack of sleep! Spellbinding from start to finish. Three encores and then we did not want to leave! Pity I was not allowed to even get a quick snap on my phone though...(with no flash!) like I am going to sell that! I have my memories though...they cannot stop me storing those...yet! Curious to know what they are going to do with all the video they shot at the venue though.

Brilliant Yusuf! from Tim H, 11/11/14
Having been a fan of Cat Stevens/Yusuf Islam for more years than I can remember it was a joy to at last finally see and hear him for real. A wonderful show, wonderful voice and very tight band behind him; playing a superb selection of old and new songs. Great too to see one of his oldest collaborators Alun Davies there too. The Venue was very plush and easy to reach via the tube network for me. Acoustics were great. I hope he returns here again one day soon. So my sincere thanks to everyone involved and of course particularly to Yusuf, without whom....

Brilliant from 2211dee, 11/11/14
Cat Stevens was absolutely brilliant. Didnt want it to finish. Was a big fan in the 70s and had every album. Wasnt sure what to expect but he was brilliant. Would def see him again.

Great opportunity to see a legendar... from Rob R, 10/11/14
This was a well presented set combining old, familiar favourites with his new album. Nicely staged set with moody, subtle lighting rather than a dramatic, spectacular light show. It was a very laid back performance, which was well appreciated by the audience and I think deserved another encore song. If I have any criticism of the set it is that all of the new material was bunched together at the beginning of the 2nd half. I think it would have been better to have input some of this into the middle of the 1st half. I think some were disappointed about the duration of the new material in one lump and concerned that some of the favourites which he started with would be sacrificed. It was a shame that his new album wasnt released a little earlier to get a chance to familiarise oneself with his new material before the show. It wont stand the test of time of his classics, but is nevertheless very listenable. Yusuf/Cat Stevens - Thanks for the opportunity to see you perform some old favourites.
