I don´t think this one has ever circulated but there are not so many shows from the 2002 tour around, so I thought I would give a go. I have some clear images about this show, the main one being asleep on the floor of the Palavobis towards the end of the show. And, before you can blame me, it was not because I was bored by the music but simply because I was tired after a week of almost no sleeping because of work.

Another thing I clearly remembered was that at the beginning of the show I had a seat at the back of the hall but pretty in front of the stage. The sound was good but unfortunately I had to deal with people talking during the music, which was even more disturbing during the first couple of tracks. During Phase Dance I decided to move down to the floor.

The concert started at about 9.15 PM and at one point it reached the 2,5 hours marks and the band had not exited yet for encores! I was really exhausted and during the last track I recorded I was asleep holding the microphone. It was almost midnight and I had to get up early the following morning so I decided to leave. I don´t know what else the band played, but normally they were closing the set with Minuano and Bilbao.

Of course I regret not being able to record the whole thing and among the 550+ shows I attended, it very rarely happened for me to leave before the end. Last time I was very close to quit was during this year´s Marillion appearance in Milano at the Alcatraz: I was sweating because of the fever and outside it was nearly snowing...I was sooo sick. Also I had to wake up the following day at 4.30 AM to catch my flight to Paris. But at the end I stayed. For GYBE in Paris a couple of years ago I was so pissed about the music that I left after 30 minutes. But these are only very few examples.
