Europe Live Shepherds Bush Empire 14.2.07.
Yes the perfect Valentine’s Day gig for Jet,
Europe back to Rock the night for us once more.
The place was packed but not quite sold out for
this show on their tour to promote the new Album
As expected this was good hard slick metal with
all the clichés intact they played a good safe
set including a good version of Got to Have faith
and one of the new songs Love Is Not the Enemy
was pretty good , Seven Doors Hotel got it’s
normal preamble but a cool version none the less,
Yes they Rock The Night and gave us the Girl From
the Lebanon a song I like more each time I hear
it, Secret Society isn’t quite as Heavy as Joey
would like to believe but a good rock song none
the less, yes we still had the Wings of Tomorrow
to fly off on and if we Start from the Dark who
knows what might happen.
Carrie was as monumental a Ballad as ever and the
version of Yesterdaze news they did with loads of
false endings and elongated solos seemed to go on
The encore as ever featured Cherokee and then one
of the new songs before they closed with the song
that will forever close there concerts yes indeed
time for the place to erupt for The Final
Countdown sounding as good and cheesy as ever.
Damn they make everyone smile even when Joey
comes out with the same stuff he always come out
