The sound techies were on form, for sure, and the instrument swap-overs were very smooth, with very very little time between songs, unless they were interacting with the crowd.

Sound: We arrived late and only caught 1 song from the support act, but from this we gathered they were quite poor! There was a cheer when they finished! Feeder came on in amazing form. Guitars were all perfectly leveled with the bass and drums, and the vocals were perfect too. This was a proper album quality gig. The sound techies were on form, for sure, and the instrument swap-overs were very smooth, with very very little time between songs, unless they were interacting with the crowd. // 10

Perfomance: I was standing (as per usual! ), and as far as the Manchester Apollo goes, it was packed with fans. As soon as Feeder came on, the crowd went mad, and the seated people, rose to their feet, and stayed their for the whole act. Set list (I got their set list which the roadies handed out): 01. Feeling A Moment - great opener, played flawlessly. 02. Comfort In Sound 03. Pushing The Senses 04. Tender 05. Turn 06. Just The Way I'm Feeling 07. Tumble And Fall 08. Frequency 09. Bitter Glass 10. Pilgrim Soul 11. Come Back Around 12. Descend 13. Rewind 14. Insomnia 15. Buck Rogers 16. Dove Grey Sands 17. High 18. Forget About Tomorrow 19. Just A Day - played the bass notes for 1 bar alone, and the whole crowd were going "do do dodo, do do dodo" which was emmense! The playing of the song was amazing too! I won't leave a comment on each song, because they were all played and performed extremely well. The only really weird part of the show was when a bunch of 3 girls came over and started groaping me and trying to undress me. The visual effects were fantastic, there were cameras and a projector projecting the band onto a massive screen on the back. The lighting was great too. // 10

Overall Impression: Manchester Apollo, 26th March 2005. Tickets cost 17, which in my opinion was a bargain for this standard of show. The overall feel to the gig was great, and the band put on a very good act. Seeing the security guys infront of the stage actually do something was quite a surprise, they jumped in and grabbed 2 guys out in headlocks which was quite novel! The visual effects were great, the sound quality was amazing, and overall, the gig rocked! I will definatly be going to see Feeder again! // 10
