ARENA LIVE NOVEMBER 5 QUEBEC CITY AT IMPERIAL
« on: Mon, 2005-11-07, 01:03:03 »
Yesterday, i saw Arena in quebec city, it was a great show like my first in 2003 at college st-charles garnier.The show during time i think 2 hours and half.Arena live is amazing, great persons, great music, great audiences,john mitchell amazing guitar player.After the show i talk little with the band and more with john. I asked what is his favorite album of arena, he answer to me pepper ghost. He talk about the visitor album , who he's dont like the singing of this album. I said is question of taste, for him rob is better. I dont understand why he dont like paul wrightson singing on the visitor album.For me Paul is excellent, i prefer him for crack in the ice, the hanging tree, state of grace, and the stuff on the first two albums like jericho, valley of the kings etc..I like rob too he's amazing on the last album, he's excellent for immortal,contagion, pepper's ghost. Rob is a nice guy, i shake his hand , we see is sincerity.

Thank you very much for the report and your impressions, mate!

While reading, I was constantly thinking that for the telegram style there were still missing the "STOP"s in  between sentences, hehe :P

How was Sense (the opening act)? I played with some guys in that band. It's a shame I could not attend the concert, I'm so sad... family emergency... :'(
Clive, how should I proceed to send you material from my own band for you to consider as an opening act or anything like distribution, production etc?
Thanks!

Bonjour a tous!

I saw Arena for the first time in Quebec and i can tell you that was a very great show from the first to the last minute.  After the show i talk (with my very bad english) with Rob, this guy is very very nice and the rest of the band too.  I tell her that he save my life because my job is very very...i don't know how to tell in english (plate, routinier, endormant), but i can listen to music all the day, it's a chance!  I never saw a band with as much generosity and availability with their fan than Arena.
