Went to see them last night in Luxemburg. The venue wasn't sold out at all, and the crowd was kind of dull, kind of sad for the band... only a handful were singing along & dancing to the songs. The band were on top form though. Liam sounded really good. I'm just saying & Start Anew sounded amazing. Liam sometimes made a sleeping face when he wasn't singing, annoyed with the dull crowd I guess.
Seeing them again in Brussels on monday, let's hope for a more lively crowd then !

So the European tour has just finished in Paris last night. Where have you seen them? and what's your opinion about their gigs?
I've seen them twice on DGSS tour in 2011 and once on BE tour (3 days ago). I personally found Liam didn't sound bad at Paradiso. Gem looked not very fit, which was a shame. Andy and Jay were doing their job in their way and Chris' drums was quite powerful.

I went to Paris gig yesterday. It was great (not as crazy as Camden last year, but greater than the Apollo in november imho).
No soundcheck for Liam, he was in town with Debbie and Gene apparently. The band rehearsed Champagne Supernova, Live Forever...
Jay was happy to be here (as always...), Gem seemed tired, and Andy was... Andy ^^ Chris was on fire. He threw and always missed his drumsticks and punched the drum with the fist instead.
Good audience, good voice from Liam. He always seem to have some problems with his microphone/earphone, but not as much as at the Apollo. He didn't "destroy" his roadie like he does sometimes. At the beginning of the encore, he did a sign like "2 more songs" but in fact we only got Gimme Shelter. Don't know why...
Nobody seems to care to talk about their European tour anymore since a big news has been announced.
I did enjoy the gig except some scary moments. There was less beer shower and less flying plastic cups than Oasis gigs I've been to, but more super-knobhead-idiots (sorry for my language). Especially the guy who said F-word to us and "If you say one more word to me, I'll smash your face" to the girl behind me.
Idiot like that ruins whole pleasure. Don't ever come to the gig again, idiot. You're not deserved to call yourself Gallagher "fan", cos you're not. You're nothing, but scum.
Yeah, some idiots as always, but overall a very good night in Paris. We have done a "Mad Fer It" party after the show with about 25 people. That was really cool to talk about our memories, our feelings toward BE / Noel and Oasis. A mutual respect between fans, even when they disagree, that's what I love. I should have done more gigs (5 of my friends have follow the group for the last 6 gigs, amazing memories and photos !). Now I regret...
