What does it sound like?:
This 2cd/dvd set showcases the band’s 2019 residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. This is a show with a difference as the first half is mainly devoted to some of their less performed material, such as Die Hard The Hunter, Too Late for Love and Switch 625. Inevitably these days, there’s an acoustic segment on a separate stage, enabling the band to showcase power ballads like Two Steps Behind and Have Yoy Ever Needed Someone, before they move into greatest hits mode for the rest of the evening, finishing with a great run of half a dozen or so of their best known crowd pleasing songs. The vociferous crowd are intent on having a good time, and seem as familiar with the deeper cuts as they are with the obvious choices, while the production is spectacular, especially for a relatively small venue such as this one. A good time was had by all!
What does it all *mean*?
A really enjoyable couple of hours spent in the company of one of Sheffield’s finest exports. They know exactly what their audience want, and make sure they deliver the goods.
Goes well with…
Hot dogs and Bud.
Might suit people who like…
Good time rock with no pretence of any deep meaning.
