Just want to say what a fantastic night it was in Nottingham. From the start of King Kings set to the end of Countdown I was blown away. King King were a great choice of support their blues rock style going down well with as far as I could see a very near full house.
Europe came on full guns blazing with the mighty Walk the Earth which for me is already a classic looking like they would take no prisoners. I thought all the new tracks fitted in well with the old and was as good a set list as I`ve seen them play for a while even though as a typical fan would have loved one or two others (why never PIP in UK!!) but even so loved every second of the show.This was also my eldest daughters first Europe show (In absence of her mum who is fighting the big C) and she thought they were great (especially when they played New Love In Town which is her mum and mines song)and she was singing along top of her voice. Was good to see a lot of younger people there ( god I sound old) singing along Knowing all the words showing just how valid they are in todays rock scene.
Of course the place erupted as usual as the horns of the final countdown came through the speakers and then that was all. To me the greatest band ever and such a memorable night just hope its not 6 years till we get another proper headline tour with full set.
