Spiritualized At the Apollo

Its been a long time since I last saw Spiritualized and it was well worth the wait. On Friday at the Apollo Theater, it was truly a magical experience to see the band stripped down with an orchestra and gospel singers.

Coming on stage with an acoustic guitar and a pair of sunglasses, Jason Pierce sounded and looked incredible. It was as if no one existed (especially the douchebag that kept saying "Jason take your sunnys off"...what an idiot) as Jason picked up his acoustic guitar and said "thank you" a total of 2 times during the night.

The crowd was a bit odd but respectful as they stayed seated throughout the entire show. I would have liked it to be a la PJ Harvey and been able to hear a pin drop...but you can't always get what you want

Here is the setlist:

Sitting On Fire
Lord Let It Rain On Me
True Love Will Find You
Cool Waves
Going Down Slow
Feel So Sad
Soul On Fire
Walking With Jesus
Stop Your Crying
All Of My Tears
Baby I'm Just A Fool
Anything More
Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space
Broken Heart
I Think I'm In Love...
Lord Can You Hear Me
Oh Happy Day

Absolutely brilliant show...and a once in a lifetime experience.
