3 Colours Red came on stage at around 10pm, which not many people where happy
about because Cay left the stage at 9.15. and in Newcastle they get impatient
pretty quick, probablies coz no good bands play here that often. They kick
the set off with new song Song on the Radio the crowd goes mental
and many could mistake it for an old favourite rather than a newie. They
play a reasonable mix from both their first album and new revolt
album. A few songs in Pete complains its too fucking hot
and removes his shirt only to be greeted by a You fat bastard
chant. They play almost an hour set with crowd surfers including Danny McCormack
(ex-Wildhearts, now YoYos) who is of course Chriss brother. They
play an encore consisting of pure, this is my hollywood
before blasting away the crowd with paralyse.
The band bids the crowd goodnight, and as they are leaving, Chris runs back on stage, much to the others surprise. How about one more just for you?, he shouted, this is your last chance to go fucking mental! Before starting to play the intro to Marilyn Mansons favourite cover of Anarchy in the UK The crowd took his advice and went mental, the security were overridden by crowd surfers. This is the only gig on their UK tour (as far as I know) that they played Anarchy because Mr. Manson forbid them. But as Chris said, This isnt Glasgow, Wolverhampton or Sheffield, its fucking Newcastle!
Thanks to Kevin Morris for this review, nice one.
