This Means Nothing To Me ...... OHHH Vienna !!!

The Pie Tribe headed to the Philharmonic in Liverpool to hear Ultravox in concert. Unfortunately friends Harry Barnet and Dave Rave were unable to go due to illness and we wish them both well soon. We arrived part way through the support act which was South African singer songwriter Arno Carstens. He was alright, worth a listen.

Ultravox came on and played for nearly two hours with four encores. They set contained an array of songs from their career and plenty of hits. They were excellent and were well received. Particular favourites of the night were the tracks from the Vienna album including Astradyne, Passing Strangers, New Europeans, All Stood Still, Vienna, the brilliant Sleepwalk and Mr X! 

The Vienna Album was one of the first albums the Pieman ever bought in Broadmead Shopping Centre, Bristol 1980/81.
Here's a fairly complete set list: New Europeans, Passing Strangers, We Stand Alone, Mr X, Visions in Blue, Thin Wall, Death in the Afternoon, Astradyne, Rage in Eden, Hymn, Lament, One Small Day, All stood still, White china, Vienna, Reap the wild wind (Piester In Law Theme), Dancing with tears in my eyes, Love's Great Adventure, Sleepwalk, The Voice

A great gig with some impressive dad dancing from Billy Currie, mean tub thumping from Warren Cann, powerful vocals from Mr Ure and pulsating bass notes from Mr Cross.
