Astoria is a good location but does leave a little to be desired. Birmingham Symphony hall was good. Manchester Apollo is a good settiing. However:
Keeping in line with the wonderful Frankfurt venue last October - Manchester Opera House. Quite a cosy atmosphere - as found out last week when saw Mr Jarre doing Oxygene - concert was ok - but not a touch on the masters!

RAH or RFH in london are also fitting settings for the majesty of TD music.....because the venues fit the classical oeuvre running through tangmusic


while watching JMJ at RAH I couldnt help feeling it would have suited the 02 better :wink:

the best gigs I have seen have always been at the SBE, hopefully when TD come to London again they will go there

2000 flies can't be wrong ;) no the SBE is ok, only I wish they could put some glass in the bog windows (judging by last time, and the time before that ;))...can't say I've ever been to a gig with bad sound there

RFH? one of the worst live experiences for me....but then again I think TD PA was having the night off...sorry lads (the sound at the Kraftwerk gig a few weeks later was stunning, I've only ever heard one gig better and that was TD at the Dominion in 1982...don't get me started on that). What's worse about the RFH is the lack of leg room, terrible (the QEH is almost as bad). Apparently the new multi-million pound refit of the RFH added one inch more leg room...woohoo! They tried to improve the sound as well, but I hear that things haven't improved that much (whilst the sound at the QEH was quite good....don't ask about the music).

Perhaps TD should be thinking about the Brixton Accademy or another more unsual venue?

Billythefish would be happy. to be fair I have seen Foo Fighters and Massive Attack there(twice). not bad although I like intimate venues and the brixton accademy is so far away from being that. I dont think it would suit TD`s music.

looked pretty good, what do you prefer the bigger venues or small ones? One of the reasons I am not going to Loreley is I find festivals so cold, not sure how I would find TD playing there. I am not really a fan of festivals at all.

No I agree mate, smaller ones are far better, once you go beyond about 2000 then things aren't that good IMHO (sound quality wise and seeing the stage). The TUe was fantastic as a venue, I was really impressed with it (although it would have been nice to actually select what seat you got, rather than being man-handled into a seat in the rush getting into the hall). The best venue I've been to recently would be the Alte Oper, as you could see the stage really well (the bottom half of the TUe is flat, therefore it wasn't easy seeing the whole stage at times, but that's a small whinge nothing more). The seats at the AO were also very comfortable, ironic really as TD played a fairly short set.

as i have said before the refurbished rfh is an improvement over the previous...not by much, but enough to warrant a return by td, but with a bigger PA.



alter oper is an excellent venue. excellent :D

the refurb was in the main concert hall, they should have spent some cash on refreshment facilities in the foyer and better food etc.......and extend the bar by 600% :arrow:
