Well, what can I say?
A Siouxsie sandwich really.
I'm back (oh no, I hear you cry).
A short summary of my Siouxsie experience last weekend........
Opening with Isreal & Arabian nights was a big surprise, but a welcome one.
Although not the banshees, the band were really tight, as if they had been playing these songs for years.
The new songs could have easily been off Tinderbox really & when Night Shift started up, all I could think of was hairy armpits (watch Nocturn to see what I mean) ;) 
As for the encores, I was blown away with Hello I love You & Happy house, but to get a rendition of HK Garden & finish with Spellbound was more than I could have wished for.
Stumbling through the London night back to Leicester Sq station past celebrating south africans & disappointed English fans was irrelavant. I had just seen the queen & she was spot on!
Long live the queen.
Cheers
Steve
I know tomorrow's going to taste like cake

Must've been awesome. Welcome back.
Who am I? Who are you? Is this world what we percieve it to be? Do we even exist?

WOW!
I'M SURPRISED SHE PLAYED (SO MUCH) SATB MATERIAL
LAST FEW DAYS I WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION THAT SHE'S TRYING TO BREAK SOME TIES WITH THE PAST


WERE THERE ANY YOUNG KIDS?

Fatter than Bob, balder than Porl, as sober as Simon, as amusing as Jason

I'm astonished that she played so many Siouxsie and the Banshees songs.
It seems you've enjoyed the concert very much.

Welcome back Steve  :)

Here Comes That Day
Loveless
