Almost, but not quite

Favourite moment: The lead singer's dress. @
Opening act(s): n/a @
The tickets said 7pm...the gratuitous video started at 8:45 and after sitting through that we had to wait almost another hour before the band graced us with their presence (on a Monday night).
After getting over my irritation at the late start, I enjoyed some of the show. The singing and songs were good, but the addition of the choir, strings and brass was entirely too much for this venue. I would have preferred just the singers and guitar. There was good charisma and personality, along with the back story which gave the music some depth.
Cash only bar was also NOT a bonus. A drink or two might have helped.
