Procol Harum in London 13 May 2017

Carrie and John Maun for BtP


Sunday Morning (Literally!) Thoughts from a Shepherd's Bush Hotel

Procol Harum put on a stupendous show on Saturday night. We had been at the Birmingham Concert on Thursday evening and although we had enjoyed it very much there was definitely magic in the air at the Empire.

Across both sets we had appreciated the choice of songs very much. Just the right mixture of new material with much-loved classics. The Novum choices sounded awesome live and all went down very well with both sets of appreciative audiences.

The ballads soared and the faster numbers powered along splendidly like a particularly well-oiled machine. All the musicians were on top of their game and Gary was in superb voice. A Salty Dog and The Only One were outstanding powerful vocals with a beautiful emotional resonance.

Procol are a band with awe-inspiring energy to their playing, and we are looking forward to seeing them play many more times in the future.

Well done Gary, Matt, Geoff, Josh and Geoff.

You are truly the best!

Thanks, Carrie and John!
