Fantastic show, as ever. Really enjoyed "The Watcher", though for some odd reason I seemed to hear it in Lemmy's voice.

From the front row (right in front of Mr. Dibbs) the light show and sound were amazing, if a little bit head scrambling, though I don't suppose leaning against a speaker helped much :D

Well done to the whole crew, Band, Roadies, the lot......and Happy Anniversary to Kris and Dave.

I've had more than a few gigs down at the front, right near the speaker stacks. It might even be why I sometimes have a distant hissing in my ears at unexpected moments...

oh, well.

Anyway, let's have a set-list and a description, when attendees recover!

It wasn't the whole stack, just a small one bolted to the front of the stage........probably just as well.

Agreed! A fantastic show - good venue and great to see some familiar faces.

This tour just gets better and better. An hour and three quarters, no support just Hawkwind and the Machine Stops plus old favourites. I can't remember the whole set list but Orgone Accumulator and Shot Down in The Night would have been contenders for the best.

Haz just goes from strength to strength - I honestly thing he is the best bassist Hawkwind have had since Lemmy, the chemistry with DB is just...intuitive.

Finished with Hassan I Sabbah and a rip roaring Silver Machine but sprinkled in there was Utopia, Assault & Battery/Golden Void, The Watcher plus of course many from Machine Stops. Check out the projections for Synchronised Blue - seems to me it's Tree in the City revisited??

Gonna try and get to Rambling Man but hope there are more dates before the end of the year.
