    Anyone else heading to this? Unfortunate that it's a Monday night, but can't wait. They were my highlight of EP 2017 (albeit in lashing rain).

    Ah, a majestic memory. Epic stuff. Really getting into the latest offering now, can't wait to see them live again. Saw a pic somewhere of their stage set up, looks great.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,383 ✭✭✭Stillill42


    This is what I saw, actually, I'm not sure if it's this tour? Looks cool though. Like I say, really looking forward to it.

    Edit: it's mining, isn't it? I've got it wrong again. As you were.

    Ha, also one of my EP2017 highlights, seen them in the Olympia since and will also be there on 16th...

    I'm not mad on the newish album, its good but nowhere near the previous stuff which is possibly too good in a fked up sort of way!



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,210 ✭✭✭Le Bruise


    Looks like coal mining alright!😊 They don't start this tour until 5th May, so they'll be well fresh for us!

    I've been trying to get into the new album, a couple of decent tunes in there, but need a few more run throughs. Their tour that ended in December was very 'Bright Magic' heavy according to setlist.fm (obviously, being the 'Bright Magic Tour'). Still hoping they'll pull out a good few of the hits.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,210 ✭✭✭Le Bruise


    First Gig of this tour tonight in Wrexham as part of the 'Focus Wales Festival'. Be interesting to see what their set list is like.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,117 ✭✭✭fafy


    Only got into them in recent months, “Every Valley” is just amazing as a concept album, and going through the other albums.

    I am supposed to be going to Lindsey Buckingham the night of May 17th, but it’s possible it will be cancelled as he cancelled some of his US gigs re covid in the touring group, if it does, will definitely catch PSB,in the relatively intimate Cyprus Avenue on 17th.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,383 ✭✭✭Stillill42


    Nothing on Setlist for the Wrexham gig. Anyone have any idea what they're playing besides Bright Magic?

    I seen a picture of the word "go" on the background screen so I'm presuming they played that, no idea of what else was played, iv being checking setlist.fm too.

    They played 'The Other Side' and 'Go' one after another in Wrexham (saw it on youtube), so this would follow the pattern of their end of 2021 sets.

    I'd say it'll be close enough to this - https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/public-service-broadcasting/2021/helios-37-cologne-germany-b8b7d22.html

    The only caveat is that someone mentioned 'They Gave Me A Lamp' being played at Wrexham, which wouldn't have been on their recent set lists. They may have just gone a little more 'Every Valley' heavy for the location?!

    Looking forward to seeing them in Cyprus Avenue next week. I also think the Academy gig in 2018 was one of the best ever!



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,210 ✭✭✭Le Bruise


    Wrexham setlist up now - https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/public-service-broadcasting/2022/llwyn-isaf-wrexham-wales-7bb796e0.html

    Appears light on a few songs, possibly due to time constraints at the festival.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,383 ✭✭✭Stillill42


    A bit light alright but lot's of goodies there. Roll on Monday.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,383 ✭✭✭Stillill42


    Just watched that video for 'the other side'. Magnificent stuff. Appropriate that it was filmed in the pissings of rain, exactly as I remember them from Stradbally.



  • Registered Users Posts: 597 ✭✭✭one man clappin


    Heading to Cypress Avenue Tuesday night to see them.

    Looking forward to it now.

    I would love if they played "Lit Up". the live version from Live at Brixton is one my favourites



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,210 ✭✭✭Le Bruise


    Was listening to 'The Other Side' (among other PSB tunes) on the way to work this morning myself, chills down the spine every time!

    My abiding memory of the Stradbally gig was turning and grabbing the Welsh randomer behind me, each time there was a song from Every Valley. We were the best of friends by the end (I think...I may have had a few sherries).



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,383 ✭✭✭Stillill42


    Great idea to have a Welshman beside you. Must see if I can source one for Monday.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,210 ✭✭✭Le Bruise


    Anyone in attendance at Limelight last night? Listened to a lot of Bright Magic over the weekend, it's really grown on me and can't wait to hear some of the tunes live later!

    Set list from last night below for anyone interested. They seem to be sticking to the same structure and changing one song in the middle each gig. Last night it was Night Mail (previously EVA, Theme from PSB, Korolev...). Hoping for Theme from PSB myself!

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,383 ✭✭✭Stillill42


    That was truly spectacular. What a gig! What an atmosphere! 'All out' my favourite tonight but could have been 6 or 7 others. Absolutely loved it. These boys are geniuses.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,117 ✭✭✭fafy


    Good to hear, looking forward to seeing them tonight



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,383 ✭✭✭Stillill42


    Ah, enjoy it buddy. I'd go again if I could. Love their albums but they just transform those songs live. Took the roof off with Go! to finish the set and I wondered what the point of an encore was but they did the most joyful rendition of Gagarin you could imagine, complete with dancing brass section, finished off with a beautiful 'Everest'. You'll have a blast.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,210 ✭✭✭Le Bruise


    Unreal gig, so many highlights! Possibly Go my favourite, but All Out a close second. The brass lads were gas, looked like they were having so much craic.

    my only gripe was the constant chatter where we were standing, really noticeable during the quieter songs. Small thing though, great time had.



  • Registered Users Posts: 4,834 ✭✭✭RayCon


    The chatter was atrocious where I was standing .... I really fcuking despise inconsiderate arseholes who chat like they're in a pub or beer garden when at a gig. No respect for the artist or audience.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,117 ✭✭✭fafy


    Unreal gig, yes, noticed chatter, but kept on the gig at hand. I knew they would be good but this was astonishingly good, sound was outstanding, lighting was in another realm, 10/10




  • Registered Users Posts: 5,761 ✭✭✭Aglomerado


    Absolutely cracking gig last night...they just get better and better! I really noticed the chatter during the more ambient tunes, even though I was close to the front. I also agree, why go to a gig and pay €30+ to get in only to stand around chatting all night. You may as well go to the pub. It's disrespectful to the artists and annoying for the rest of the audience. Yer man who roared "Shut up" during the quieter bit had me in stitches!
