Thought I might take a trip down memory lane and write the review of my first BRMC show. It's all a bit foggy 5 years later but one thing I can remember was the sheer nose bleed enducing volume of BRMC that night...I literally had ringing in my ears for 3 days afterwards.
Ty Cobb were the support band and were pretty damn interesting to listen to if memory serves me correctly.Good to see they're still going these days anyway.
The crowd was a little bit subdued for the whole night but it didnt really spoil it for me (The NME reading posers have now disappeared if the fantastic crowd at the recent gig in The Village is anything to go by), the BRMC performance itself was out of this world. From what I can remember the setlist was comprised of almost all of the tracks from 'B.R.M.C' and some fledgling 'Take Them on Stuff' (Generation, Six Barrell Shotgun were definitely played). Theres a great bootleg of this gig going around somewhere - I actually saw the guy bootlegging it behind me! They played a really great song at this which has not appeared since called 'Blown Away' - a really upbeat, almost dare i say it happy BRMC song.
Anyway, i ended up getting all 3 of the lads' autographs in 3 seperate locations,(Nick at the front of the stage, Robert at the stage door and then ran into peter when i was going home and our taxi was caught in traffic beside the tour bus. Got my ticket signed through the window ha ha. really sound blokes, no rockstar bullshit - class acts all the way.
So after a fantastic gig my 15 year old self became a lifetime fan of BRMC. Good times :)

I HAVE GREAT MEMORIES OF THIS NIGHT WHICH IS EASILY MY FAVOURITE BRMC GIG SO FAR.THE STANDOUT TRACKS OF THE NIGHT WERE LOVE BURNS AND AWAKE,ESPECIALLY DURING THE CHORUS OF THE LATTER WHICH NEARLY BLEW THE ROOF OFF THE OLYMPIA.GOOD TIMES
