This was a case of two concerts for the price of one, going to see Feeder at The Limelight, and then getting to listen to Liam Gallagher on my walk home, and then opening my window so I could listen to him belt out his hits from the comfort of my Living Room.
It was Liam Gallagher who had his gig in the diary first, rearranged from last year on medical advice after he fell out of a helicopter.
One normal day of Liam Gallagher, that is all I ask for.
Feeder acknowledged the competition and said they were glad to have people come out to see them. They would have loved to have supported him, but having supported Noel recently, he may not be keen on the idea as they will have been deemed to have taken sides.
Grant did state that Ash, who did support him, were brilliant.
If you’re wondering why I went to Feeder instead despite Liam being announced first, here’s why.
I’m finished with outdoor concerts in Belfast. Too many scumbags on the fags and vapes throughout. No matter where I move (and I shouldn’t have to) I find myself struggling to breathe. It’s just not worth the hassle.
I shouldn’t be letting them win but I have no choice, I have to look after myself.
It will be to my own detriment, as i’ll be missing out on Simple Minds, Madness and Stereophonics.
That will be around £120 that the Live Music Industry will be missing out on through their inability to tackle the problem. Something to bear in mind the next time they are on the news crying about how hard things are.
Don’t tell me they can’t do anything. They can confiscate chocolate bars when people are going into Belsonic and they can confiscate mobile phones at a Kevin Hart show.
You can do anything you want when you put your mind to it.
Not that The Limelight is much better, as people routinely vape right in front of Security Staff.
What is the fucking point of them being there if they’re not going to do their job?
We really do live in a society that has a culture of tolerance and appeasement towards it’s absolute worst.
Unsurprisingly, this was a show packed with hits, beginning with the most recent once, The Healing, lead single from their most recent album Torpedo.
If you haven’t heard it, it’s an epic footstomper that is best described as “Classic Feeder” and can stand up to any of their big hits.
Big hits, such as Feeling A Moment, Lost And Found, Just The Way I’m Feeling, Come Back Around, Just A Day and Insomnia.
One of the big hits that nearly didn’t make it was Buck Rodgers. I know, that is almost sacriligious.
Grant Nicholas was toying with the idea of not playing the song on this tour.
Toyed with it, but he was never going to get away with it. He acknowledged himself how many doors it opened for the band, and then they played it.
It went down a storm, the whole venue singing along.
As fans left the venue, The Limelight was now getting ready for it’s club night, with the DJ playing Mr Blue Sky by ELO.
An appropriate choice, considering how warm it had been all day.
The problem was, it was now pissing down.
At least I didn’t have far to walk home.
As I was walking home, I could hear the sound of live music.
I assumed that it was another band playing elsewhere in The Limelight.
As I got further away from The Limelight, it became obvious that it was the sound of Liam Gallagher.
I could still hear him as I arrived at my front door.
It would have been rude not to open my window and listen to him from the comfort of my Living Room.
He sounded great, especially as I had arrived perfectly at the point where he was belting out the big hits.
Hopefully, next time, will be at The Odyssey.
