Scissor Sisters - Odyssey Arena Belfast
Wow. The Scissor Sisters were fantastic! What a great evening. They certainly put on a good performance. When I've seen the music videos I've often wondered what that girl was doing in the band, but she was certainly quality entertainment on the night. She was running the show! They were great with the audience, always talking in between songs and interacting with everyone. Everyone seemed to enjoy it except the row in front of us who sat their looking bored and stiff throughout the entire performance.
Every band I've been to see at the Odyssey (Travis, Coldplay, Busted (er, with Sam)) have always commented on Belfast's reputation amongst bands for being one of the best places to play. And at the end of the concerts they always affirm that Belfast is definitely one of the best places to play. I don't know if they say that at every concert they go to, but I feel that the good people of Belfast really are an excellent audience. I think they are so pleased to have someone come here and perform at last, after years of nothing, that they really appreciate and enjoy it. Well, me and C certainly enjoyed ourselves :)
She took some photos of the show which I'll post on the blog once she emails them to me. Here is one of us all dressed up in our glad rags which Steve took before we left.
