Proxima, Warsaw, Poland - September 26th + news

The setlist (I hope I  haven't missed anything)

Bedlam Fayre
A Crack In The Ice
Midas Vision
Elea
The Hanging Tree
A State Of Grace
Don't Forget To Breathe
Smoke And Mirrors
Purgatory Road
Witch Hunt
Waiting For The Flood
Medusa
The Shattered Room
Chosen
Skin Game
Enemy Without
Friday's Dream
Crying for Help VII
Jericho

As you can see: No 'Solomon', no 'Butterfly Man', but an impressive setlist nevertheless. Surprisingly, Cry VII did not end the gig.
Unfortunately, the venue was far from packed.  However, the ones who came, were mostly Arena core fans so we were able to produce the appropriate amount of applause. The band definitely deserved it. All were in good form and Rob was 'the man of the match'. I enjoyed his singing and stage presence immensely. I had a chance to talk to band members afterwards and made sure to express my enthusiasm.
Great first-hand news: Clive is going to work on a new project: a large scale symphonic rock opera to be relesed by Metal Mind. This time with a full symphonic orchestra. Clive seems quite excited about it and so am I. The singers will include Bob Catley. No Tracy Hitchings this time, but there will be other names that Clive does not want to reveal now.
Apart from that, Clive and Oliver Wakeman have written some tunes for the next Nolan/Wakeman project. Unfortunately further work was postponed beacuse there are no money to release this album - the excellent 'The Hound of the Baskervilles' (my personal favourite Nolan-inside album) did not sell well enough. A shame. Perhaps we should buy more copies and distribute them among our friends?

Ah, i forget to mention at least two tunes that have been played:

An Angel Falls
The Painted Man

The gig lasted well over two hours, perhaps even two  and a half.

Yes, this sounds very good to me.  I have not been able to buy the Nolan-Wakeman albums yet but they are high on my list. :-[
