Echo and the Bunnymen, York Grand Opera House, 29 Sep 11

It had been a few years since we'd last spent an evening with the Bunnymen, so a chance to hear the whole of the classic "ocean rain" was too tempting to resist...

Cast in 80s shadow, Ian pulled off a great set, with a warm up section of songs including bedbugs and ballyhoo, never stop and rescue.

After a short intermission (toilet break for an aging audience?), ocean rain was performed... epic!

A couple of encores followed the album recital, with nothing lasts forever, lips like sugar and the cutter completing a fantastic evening.

Lighting was pretty much behind Ian McCulloch for the whole show, so photography was vitually impossible!
