Getting away with it - live

#1 Post by Tom Angel »

Is there any footage of the PSB guesting with electronic? I know they played it at Cities in the park and when supporting Depeche Mode. I'd love to have seen it.

Neil and Chris also joined Electronic on stage in Manchester and London in the UK. Kicking myself for having missed it!

They joined electronic at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, during that tour I was there about 10th row center, electronic was pretty amazing.

Theres a bootleg or underground recording of this concert.

i was at the show at what was briefly known as "Wembley Hall One", not even the areana - actually a draughty barn round the back of the arena near where they used to set up the market etc. Overall it was a terrible experience. The Stereo MCs were the support and no body was interested and it was freezing.

As soon as electronic came on ( johnny, Bernard, Donald Johnson on percussion, some other bloke on keyboards there was a massive surge to the front and the first few rows ( it was all standing) became a moshpit.

PSBs came on mid way thru. Patrience of a Saint , then GAWI in the remix style, then the premiere of Disappointed. I think we left after that during Feel Every Beat.

Got a few photos somewhere.

hope this helps!

I wasn't even aware they had done these live dates until long afterwards else I might have tried to go. I was a little young and had no money at the time though...

There are MP3's of the London gig floating around out there, but the audio quality is very poor.

Was at the Depeche Mode concert in Dodgers Stadium and remember Electronic openning up for the DM. They put on a great show that night.
Stay the course or change it up?
