Originally posted by germcevoy:Dabbled in some Elevation shows and youtube recently. I'm surprised how often I do this as very few shows standout on my all time favourite recordings/shows list.
If Streets wasn't as godly as it was then I don't think I would revisit 2001 with any frequency whatsoever. The staging remains masterful. The houselights start, the warm lighting versus any real colour, lack of reliance on screens. They absolutely nailed the brief 100% in making big shows intimate in a way they haven't been able to replicate in 2005/15/18.
Elevation from this footage shows it best. Clearly an arena in the house lights but it's an out and out club gig as soon as the lights go out. Flick forward for a god tier Streets intro as well.
