Saw the show last night. Have been an ardent fan for over 49 years and have seen the band numerous times, but last night’s gig was something else! The best concert I have ever seen (and that includes Floyd, The Who, Yes, ELP and countless others). Took my wife along and she has never been into any form of rock but was utterly bowled over.
The venue helped as it is small and intimate, and band’s interaction with the audience made the event well worth waiting for. But the sheer professionalism and delivery was second to none and this, coupled with Caravan’s unique style, made the evening something to remember for many years to come.
Please pass on my thanks, admiration and best wishes to all the band who, after last night, now feel like personal acquaintances if not friends. Especially pass on my congratulations to Mark whose performance was superb. I have never seen a drummer enjoy himself so much!
Of course there were disappointments in that some of my favourite numbers weren’t included. But the show was none the worse for it and the new songs seem to hit the mark better than some previous “new material”.
Thanks again to all the band: it was an honour to be there. All that now remains is to buy Paradise Filter.
