Manchester date

Review by Ian Leese (Switch to

Given the lack of gigs for Todd fans in the UK, I felt very fortunate to get another chance to see the great man in a small venue with an album to show off his guitar skills in full. The night didnít disappoint! The set list was the same as in the States ,opening with a pulsating version of LOVE IN ACTION. The early highlight was BLACK MARIA, as good as Iíve ever heard it played. I SAW THE LIGHT got an airing prior to the new album in full and was played as true to the original as Iíve heard him play.

ARENA is a fantastic listen, and grows with every play,Highlights for me include MAD,AFRAID,MERCENARY and MOUNTAINTOP, with STRIKE being the audience participation number.

COULDNíT I JUST TELL YOU and JUST ONE VICTORY round out the night. Pity about the 11pm curfew though.

I took along a friend for their first Todd concert [ a metal fan mainly] and took great joy in watching his jaw hit the floor on watching the guitar work on show.

Kasim, Rachel, Jesse and Prairie ;I salute you all!!

Please come back soon as my wife missed tonightís performance and I wonít hear the end of it till the next time she can see her favourite Todd tracks live again.

TODD still does the best show on the planet!!!!!
