Good crowd/bad crowd: Crowd was rocking out to the vibes from The Vines. I saw people pretending to play the (air) guitar, doing those high jumps. They were just having the best time ever, as you would, I mean IT IS THE VINES we’re talking about…

My review:

  • Pretty awesome songs
  • Cool sound
  • Extremely energetic and crazy (in a good way of course)
  • Pure Aussie talent.

Craig Nicholls was as delightfully unhinged as ever, seesawing between moments of uncontrolled chaos and unmistakable brilliance. With those crazy unique notes or just gifted singing, everyone was hooked from the second they came on to the moment they left.

Right at the end of the last song, when Craig started smashing the amps and drums, with his guitar, everyone knew it was the same old Vines they had grown up with. Nothing new, the same ‘old’ brilliance, which I think is a very good thing.

This crazy energetic 4-piece are renowned to put on a show to please, and boy did they live up to that promise.  Good work boys, keep up the crazy antics. So glad you’re back touring and setting the stage alight! (not literally thank goodness!!!)
