They say that sometimes all the good things in life, in fact dreams, always have an ending, but this time the ending of this great ‘Kill To Get Crimson 2008 Tour’ was in Athens Greece. And this ending was so great, for all the fans and I have to say for Mark and the entire band. Lycabettus theatre was so small I think but it works really well for everyone who wants to communicate with the music, the band, the hall atmosphere, and the songs. I think Mark loved to play there.
It was the first time I saw live Mark, and it was a dream come true for me and all my friends. Although many days have passed I’m still thrilled with what I see and what I hear. It was this great guitar sound, so clear, in an open air concert, unbelievable.
Highlights of the show it was Cannibals, the opener, and I have to say that people gave me the idea that they knew the words and signing all night, then it was this emotional version of Romeo And Juliet, and then that powerful Sultans Of Swing, for a moment i saw the hall theatre singing, and then Speedway At Nazareth, made me mad, but without the circling sky, or the circling flower, came down from the ‘sky’, taking the position behind the band, (I think it was the stage so small….) and then the epic version of Telegraph Road. In the dark I still hear his shadow playing Brothers In Arms, and I still hear from Shangri-La the words ‘this is all the heaven we’ve got right here we are….’
It was the last European Concert, i said that from the begging, all the good things always comes to an end. It was the last concert even more for Lycabettus Theatre, because after the concert closed, for restructures. And now all i have is a small video and some photos in my mobile, and my memory, all the heaven I’ve got….. I think even Mark (who didn’t seem to be tired at all) expected this love….. It was a great night, a great tour so far……
