Icon34 Trapeze night Robin 2 Bilston 7th June 2009

Hey everyone! Home from Sheffield - and boy how sad to come away form what really has been the most amazing weekend!

Saturdays show was awesome and the atmosphere in the crowd was something else, the groove was really going on in the crowd which was fantastic!

Glenn was in fine form as was he at Childlien Rocks earlier in the week! He never fails to blow me away and excels his previous performances each time, but then again you always get somethign that little bit iferent to make it so special!
Steve Stevens, well what cam I say, he really made me stand up and pay attention, complete power house and boy has he got soul!
Great to see Jeff back with Glenn again, he adds somethign extra to the songs and his sound is good!
And of course I love Anders to pieces! That guy is just the best!

I have to say this band line up is very special indeed!
Sundays Trapeze session was incredibly special. Setlist was:

1.) Way Back To The Bone
2.)Touch My Life
3.) Jury
4.) Keepin Time
5.) Coast To Coast (Glenn played Mels Black Beauty for the next three)
6.) Seaful
7.) Good Love
8.) Your Love is alright
9.) Medusa
10.) You are the Music
Encore Black Cloud

Jury was such an intense performance and was a high of te night for me, although it is so hard ot pick individual bits out that were the best bits as it was all so increbidly entertaining, funking, the vibe was so brilliant!

One thign I really enjoyed was the jamming that was happenign on stage, all 4 of the guys just gelled so well and went with it with a spectacualarly entertaining result that gave more funk and soul to shimmy the night away!

It as really great to see so many familiar faces too and meet some more GHPG people I haven't yet met! Nath, Jerome, Mike, Mick, Lee, Penny, Wolfy, Karen, Pete, Chris, David, Shirean, Paul J, Another Karen and her friends and everyone else who I've missed, it was just great hanging out with all of you!

Lovely to see Gabi again too, it's always good to see Glenn with Gabi, as individuals they are both such funny and great people and it is so lovely to see them together!

Thansk everyone for what really ahs been a brilliant weekend! See you all at the next one! xxx

Sounds great, thanks for the report guys, this must have been a wonderful show, but then, they all are. Those Trapeze songs must have smoked!!! I listened to Trapeze all day long yesterday since I couldn't be at the show

Icon34 Trapeze night Robin 2 Bilston 7th june 2009

As a new member to the forum this is my first post so here goes.

Have been a Trapeze and Glenn hughes fan for over thirty years and was lucky enough to see the trapeze gig at the old robin in 92 with mel galley playin guitar I was a little apprehensive about last nights gig as to whether it could live up to expectation. Well it did more than that it was an outstanding performance by Glenn and the band.

To hear those songs played again so well proves that Trapeze music is timeless any of the songs performed last night could appear on any modern recording and still feel fresh and new.

glenn showed what a versatile musician he is with his guitar playing on three songs using the black beauty les paul (mel galley's guitar)

The whole night was very informal from start to finish with Glenn in good humour even an appearance on stage by Ian Sludge Lees to say a joke!

We as fans should campaign to have this night as an annual event to keep the Trapeze music alive.

The whole show was filmed aswell lets hope a video is available soon.

Set list as far as I remember
Way back to bone
Touch my life
Jury
Coast to coast
Seaful
(song written for third album not sure of title)
keepin time
Madusa
Your love is alright
you are the music
Black cloud (encore)

That it end of report KEEP TRAPEZE MUSIC ALIVE

Trapeze Night

Well last night was absolutely stunning. The band were on fire, and Glenn was back in 1971 for 2 hours.

The best thing about last night was the fact that the music Trapeze wrote was and still is, way ahead of its time.
It was amazingly funky, powerful and soulful, and it really lept out of the speakers and off the stage last night.

For a while now, Glenn has concentrated on his recent material and tried to cast adrift aspects of his past. Us hardcore fans have really appreciated that, as it has given us the chance to hear newer material live.

But after last night, I feel Trapeze music should ALWAYS be given top billing in Glenns set.

I also like the idea of an annual Trapeze night....

Thanks Glenn, for a stunning performance and reminding me (as if i ever forgot) that what you wrote as a teenager was pure genius.

It was also a fitting tribute to Mel. I am sure he was fist pumping up there somewhere!

Ian

Sunday was indeed a great day and nice to chat with so many people. So good to hear all those Trapeze songs played live again. I'm looking forward to downloading the show when it becomes available.
Here's a photo i took of Wolfy and friends outside the Robin. I think I had about four cameras at one point!



Cheers

So awesome that everyone had a great time !!! I told Kenny next time Glenn plays in Europe, we have to go!!! (We have never even been there...)

Glenn really is on fire lately-- the NY shows were so good it was almost surreal....

Really hope to see you all in the States again soon...

Sunday Night was simply fantastic, a breathtaking performance from Glenn and the band, ranking among the best concerts I have ever been to (and I've been to many!)

It is really astonishing how fresh the songs still sound today.

Glenn pointed out how much he loved the improvised parts, and you could really feel the great vibes coming from the stage - and from the audience!

When I walked outside the venue in the afternoon, I thought I heard bits of Will Our Love End from the soundcheck, but it was obviously Good Love - a big surpise in the setlist. Wonderful song.

My favourites were Jury, Keeping Time and Medusa.
I loved the chit chat between the songs, and Glenn asking his old friend Sludge on stage to tell a joke was really something else.

I have already raved about the band in the Saturday thread, but I'd ike to point out Jeff's performance on Sunday especially. He gave the songs an excellent treatment in his own style, while staying true to the original.

Meeting Glenn after the show and hanging out with a couple of GHCP, Jeff, Steve Stephens and Anders at the bar was very enjoyble, and apart from chatting we took some nice pictures.

I couldn't sleep for a long time the following night and had to go to the Art Gallery Monday Morning to calm down for my return journey home...

WHAT A WEEKEND!!!

Cheers,
Christian

As there are 2 separate reports for each night ... forgive the repetition here But the pix and clips are different

First off, apologies for the slow reporting, Shirean and I are also on a mini-vacation, so have been takin' it relaxed and easy for a change!

Lots more when we return home, but meantime, here's a taster with a coupla' movie clips and pix to tide you over until then

It was a wonderful weekend, despite being over way too quickly. It was great to see everyone, old and new

Glenn and the band were on fire and delivered the goods big time! What an honour to have been able to attend this unique event. It was so good to hear some of the Trapeze songs that haven't had an airing before and same goes for the Hughes/Thrall numbers which were welcomed back by everyone

Good news for those who weren't able to make it, the shows were filmed and recorded and you'll soon be able to see them for yourself via the new Alive Drive offering. Even more good news... the drive will be on sale here on the site shortly, so you too will have the chance to pick one up!

More next week, until then...

Set list - June 7th, 2009

WOW, what a fantastic night and a fantastic weekend

Jeff Kollman absolutely nailed it as far as i am concerned. he put his own style onto all those classic songs but played them with a passion and style true to the originals Jeff told me after the show he felt honoured to be the guy to get to play all these great songs with Glenn.

Steve was just awesome. kept the power and groove going all night long and loved the interplay between himself, JK and GH

Anders didnt have so much to do due to it being songs for a 3 piece band but nevertheless he added his layers of sound with all the usual skill

As for Glenn, you could see, feel and hear just how much all these songs meant to him

An emotional night for a lot of people for a lot of reasons. im sure Mel would have approved.

i think this could be the best GH gig i have ever seen but that's a hard thing to decide due to it being all Trapeze songs, emotional for me, and therefore a different situation. the previous night runs it a close second and could really be the best overall solo show due to the setlist selection.

the only downer of the whole weekend was my camera going mad during Good Love. i could see the set list taped to the side cabinet by Jeff and got the video going before they started as its a big favourite of mine. Glenn tells the crowd about it then mentions me! wow, finally ive caught a namecheck on video! but then about a minute into the song my camera turns itself off even thought the batteries are fully charged then i turn it back on and it starts recording from the start of the memory card and overwrote everything already on it. what a ******* disaster

here's a few pics - check out my tshirt

oh, and i also met Raven Vandelle afterwards too.

You're welcome David and Christain. At least one good thing came from not being able to go

Here's a scan of my tickets to the Saturday show, if you're interested in that also.
