    Has to been The Divine Comedy. Such an extraordinary feat to perform so much different songs over the five songs with the tempo, energy and atmosphere staying at fever pitch from the first song to the final encore.

    The Divine Comedy’s residency at the Barbican was simply sublime. Over five days, the band and their accompanying seven-piece ensemble played c115 songs – amazing!

    These were the gigs of my life, never mind the year!
