Majestic. Every bit as good as my quite-high expectations. Pretty much the perfect hour-long Orbital set. The tent wasn't fully packed out, but the crowd response was ecstatic.

Wow. Muse is every bit as good live as I've heard, and way better than their live record indicates. They remind me of 70s rock bands in that once you've seen them live, you will appreciate their studio material that much more. I like the Big Rock and it's good to see some of it coming back.
If I had to describe them live in one word it would be "Scaramouche"
Matthew Bellamy indeed is the love child of May and Mercury.
I've just made the jump from Fan to Real fan.

Has just opened w a cover of Peaches and Herb's "reunited". with Roddy Bottom singing the Peaches parts. This sets the theme of occasional MOR interludes mixed in with Bone Crushing FNM heaviness.
I'm really really pleased by this reunion - in a word (sorry - ):Epic. In addition to a near perfect setlist and top notch playing, surprises included Patton going out into the crowd to serenade, jumping in midway, and crowdsurfing about 50 yards back to stage with mike in mouth, as well as a shirtless Danny DeVito (we were pretty sure) rushing the stage on the last song.
Saw FNM on Real Thing and Angel Dust tours and they were every bit as good this time. Shaping up to be a great year for Reunions at Coachella.

PiL played a magnificent career-spanning set to a medium-sized yet very devoted crowd. Rotten was in shockingly fine voice. I am not sure of who all the players in this lineup are but they are top-knotch, especially the bass player, who more than filled heavy Wobble boots. The only *slightly* weak point in the set was "Tie Me To The Length of That" - every other track was well chosen and jammed out. And the inclusion of 2 songs off "Album" - one of my favorite records of the 80s - was more than welcome. The crowd seemed most responsive to those - I think that record did better in the US than any of their others.
Rotten even pulled a bit of Joe Elliot at one point asking for crowd participation without a trace of snideness.
I am slightly bummed that I missed the full theatre show, and will absolutely hit that if it comes back into town, but they certainly pulled the highlights out into a set that lasted slightly over an hour. This set was one of my "hope it's great but who knows" choices of the weekend, and it exceeded even my best expectations.
