The Civil Wars charm the Phil from PrescotCID, 12/11/12
The Philharmonic in Liverpool is a legendary venue and acoustically perfect, so this acoustic performance was just sublime by the tremendous Civil Wars. It was just a shame they only played for a total of 66mins!! This was the shortest headline set I have witnessed by any band in 33 yrs of concert going,and believe me thats a lot. I suppose we shouldnt be too hard on them as they have only recorded one album, but surely they could have played some covers. Having said that the support band The Lumineers were superb and made the evening really special. Lets hope that The Civil Wars come back again after recording another album and treat us to some more spellbinding songs. Any band that plays for less than 90mins as headline is short changing the audience whos paid a lot to see them.Judging by the raptuous applause dont think many people realised as they probably dont attend many gigs.
