“Tentative, yet utterly emphatic”

The Independent heeft eveneens een recensie van het concert in Glasgow.

“This first show before 12,000 all-seated fans was a curious beast, tentative yet utterly emphatic all at once. Over the two-and-a-half hour running time, those who packed the hall would have surely heard everything they came for from that extensive catalogue – except there was no ‘My Generation’, its removal perhaps a concession to the dripping irony of its lyrical content being performed by a now-70-year-old and another who will reach that milestone before this tour ends”

“There was also the sense that things were being tried out in advance of the long road ahead, with quite a few unexpected choices on the setlist and a couple of songs which appeared to need tweaking (‘Squeeze Box’ required more banjo, for example). The appearance of rock mini-opera ‘A Quick One, While He’s Away’ excited enthusiasts, as did the early ‘80s vintage ‘Eminence Front’“.
