From: Kieron Perry

Bob's last electric show in London also turned out to be Michael Cerveris's
last with the band. Bob has asked him to leave as he wants to finish as he
started it - a three piece. Bit late in the day to decide that?

Anyway, show was okay and was recorded by the B.B.C. for boradcast on Radio
1. High point of the show was Bob nearly falling over after leaping off of
the drum riser during Art Crisis.


From: Eoin McCarthy

Nothing much to add to this, except to say I thought Mercury Rev were 
great.  As for Bob, well, I couldn't really ask for a much better 
setlist, the band was unbelievably tight, Hanging Tree was spectacular.  
Only problem was the vocal mix, which was pretty poor for all three 
bands. Probably something to do with me standing in front of the left 
guitar monitor.


From: Liesbeth Rijnierse

The gig was awesome.
I will never again complain about too loud, because this gig was at a
bearable volume level.
The only thing I could wish for was that I could compile the setlist,
because my taste is somewhat different from Bob's and I missed a lot of
my faves. But hell, he closed with Man On The Moon so that was good
enough for me.


From: Paul Holmes

Not perhaps the synapse-shredding, ear-exploding barrage I had hoped for 
but pretty durn good nonetheless.

The Forum show was marred by a muddy sound but the songs and the 
atmosphere transcended this.

Indeed Bob was obviously moved by the crowd's reaction and at the end he 
just stood there, blinking in the spotlight, drinking in the emotion.

Highlights were an achingly beautiful Anymore Time Between; the 
tumbleweed lament of Eternally Fried and a hypercharged Moving Trucks.


From: Vasilis Kilikoglou

The gig was excellent and Bob was in perfect form and definately
better mood than the SUGAR gig 4 years ago in Portsmouth(FUEL tour).
Only complaint the not so clear sound of the venue, at least in the 
front rows. Only regret I didn't go to Paris 2 days later to see the 
Paris show too.

Highlights:Anymore Time Between was emotionally tensed, Disappointed
(personal favorite some years ago), I Hate Alternative Rock, Man on the 
Moon, See a little light.
