Bernard Fanning @ Costa Hall, Geelong 10/8/13
With a Sold out show in Melbourne the night before, Bernard Fanning should not be disappointed with the “country Folk” from Geelong, they all turned out last night, and I didn’t see one Geelong Footy Jumper among the crowd. with amazing support acts, Vance Joy, and Big Scary the crowd got warmed up (the ones that where seated inside, and not boozing at the bar).
Alot of humor was shared on stage, Bernard pointing out Shane Warne and Olivia Newton John in the crowd (only look a likes folks), as well as some late come-ers proceeded to their seats in the front row, mid song, Bernard told them they missed the whole of his amazing back catalogue.
“Wish you well” was the request of the hour, with Bernard proceeding to tell the crowd “…your living in the past…but if you behave we might preform it later”.
the band told that they had not played that track all tour (white lie? I’m not sure) and sure enough the encore erupted with everyone in the venue on their feet.
The set included a mixture of both new material,and the wonderful back catalogue of tunes,preformed with a mixture of full band and solo sound.
