I recently attended the Worcester, MA date of the Community Service Tour of the US. Ok, the venue was really very old. It was the Worcester Palladium, an old theatre that really was not designed for this type of show. I sat in the center of the first row of the balcony so that I could get the full effect of the sound and visuals. Ok, when they first came out, Paul and Phil were smiling very very much for some reason. I had seen Paul earlier in the day, and he was beaming then too. They put out a great performance. Phil was really very animated. I'd seen them before at Lollapolooza in Boston, and he didn't move that much then. They played the same songs at the European dates, except they didn't play the F.A. Mix of Open Mind. The sound was great, except for half of Way Out when the bass was just way too much. The visuals were tight, and as good as ever. I really had good seats, so I could see exactly what they both were doing the whole time. They did a lot of scurrying around amongst their gear, and Phil was really very into it. They were so grateful of the crowd. The highpoint for me was Dr Who, because I'd had never heard the song before, but I think the high points for the crowd were Halcyon and Chime. It was a great version of Chime, it was really fast, and long. Halcyon was as good as ever, and continues to be one of my favorite live tracks. The only complaint I have is that they didn't play some of my favorites: Are We Here?(they didn't play anything from Sniv), Out There Somewhere?(only The Box was played from In Sides!), and The Girl With The Sun In Her Head. I knew what they were going to perform anyway though, because of the xmission list people. Ok, thanks for the opportunity to speak! I can't wait to see them at some Spanish festivals in a couple years!

Just thought I'd let you know - traveled down from Montreal with my brother (who was over from Scotland) to see the Community Service Tour held in Worcester (an hour outside of Boston). In a word - absolutely awesome ! The venue was a fantastic size, completely packed with a brilliant and eclectic crowd.

I was so surprised that Orbital were headlining, with CM being the 'home band', but they were and I was delighted. They played for a total of about 90 minutes and it was just incredible - awesome, especially the encore where they played Satan and the Dr. Who one ! I've been waiting years to see Orbital live, and they lived up to expectations and much more. Brilliant show. The only thing I would say is they end on a slightly downbeat note before encore - it would be horrible if they didn't get cheered back on as, as I mentioned, the last slot was absolutely stunning - musically and visually. This has to be the best concert I've attended, period. Can't wait to see them again...
