I saw Public Service Broadcasting last night in Leeds- great gig, really enjoyed it.

Regarding the other PSB- still love them too- their set at Glastonbury in 2010 is 1 of my favourite ever Glastonbury sets.

Too right. I've been to every Glasto since 1992 and the PSBs in 2010 is by far the best set I've ever seen on the farm. Everyone I speak to that was there says pretty much the same -  it was a phenomenal gig.

Neil and Chris have both said it's one of their favourite shows they've ever played too.

Anyone that's been to the PSB tour so far this week, what kind of stage times we looking at? Any support?

PSB were on from 21:00 to 22:30 last night, support was 20:00 to 20:30ish (apparently, I came in a bit late after only getting a ticket at 19:45 last night).

They were absolutely fantastic last night - best I've seen them. So glad I got my act together and got down there.

From memory, in Manchester we had:

20:00 - 20:30 Palace 
21:00- ??22:30?? - PSB

Cheers both! Good to hear. Palace any good for those that saw them?

Sounded pretty dull from the bar which was nowhere near having a view of the stage.  They're on Spotify, didn't take my fancy at all on record so I didn't bother listening to them at the gig.

Fair enough! Might give em a listen but inclined to turn up a bit later.

You enjoy PSB then? Sure you've already posted about it.

Yeah, they were pretty good.  I enjoyed the new album tracks more than on record, even if the real bangers were from the first two.

Cool! Did they mix it up a bit throughout the set then, rather than mainly doing the new album and then a few encores? Sorry for all the questions, could just go on setlist.fm... ;)

Very mixed up in Portsmouth last night - I'd imagine there set lists are quite stable sue to the production (which was incredible).

I agree about new song being even better than on record - the visuals add even more emotion to the audio. 

 

Edit: I wasn't really paying too much attention to the support when I did get in which I guess is kind of a review in itself. Very Coldplay inspired was all I can really say about it (in neither a particularly positive or negative way)

Yay! :) Really looking forward to this gig now. I've not seen them at one of their own shows since the first album (Blue Dot and some of Glastonbury only since then), so should be good.

Yeah, quite a mix.  The second album seemed to get short shrift, at least it was a while before anything from it was played.   Although it might have seemed that way, since that's my favourite.  But all the big guns came out.  That's the good thing about a 90 minute set and only three albums - you don't tend to go away disappointed, unless you really wanted to hear that one about catching yourself thinking you'll do better next time, but you've had your go. Fairly profound song, as far as pop music goes, but doesn't exactly get the party started.

If it's the same band, then you're selling Coldplay very short there.  And I don't like Coldplay much.

Haha, I actually find that song quite a difficult listen as such a downer. I've been known to skip it!

Race for Space is probably my favourite too, unless you count The War Room.

It's a real gut punch yeah, especially if you suddenly realise you're over halfway to death and wondering what on earth you've done with your life.

From the setlists I've seen it looks like a core of newer tracks and the big hitting songs is played every night with some rotating older stuff

Apparently I said I wanted a ticket to tonight's gig in the pub before LCD at Ally Pally (I have no recollection), so am off to the Apollo tonight it transpires.

 

I don't like the new album - but looks like I'll have to go along and enjoy myself anyway. It's a tough world sometimes!

Ha, you poor thing. Sure they'll play enough older stuff to keep you amused. And folks here seem to be saying the new stuff is better live.

The band have tweeted the stage times now - seems the same as the other gigs. Palace at 7:55, PSB at 9.

Saw them at the Warwick Arts Centre last week - brilliant stuff and I also agree that the visuals certainly added to the new songs and grounded them more in the mind.

However, Palace were crap, all the charisma of a wet teabag.

Yep, I haven't heard anyone that monotone since Kimi Raikonnen!

Fucking great gig. They really delivered. Choir and visuals were awesome too, as were the brass section. 

When I grow up I want to be that saxophonist
