Echo & the Bunnymen formed in Liverpool in 1978 making them a whopping thirty years old this year, and as always reminding me of my own state of aging!
Their original lineup included vocalist Ian McCulloch and guitarist Will Sergeant, who both continue to be, the main stays of the band.
The band are scheduled to play a sell out show in September this year at London's Royal Albert Hall, complete with an orchestra to perform the album 'Ocean Rain'.
A little removed from their 'post punk' beginnings in Liverpool three full decades ago.
Anyhow, this is from just one decade ago and features Echo and The Bunnymen live at The Kilburn National, in London on the 17th October 1997.
This concert was broadcast by the BBC, and this is a good quality FM stereo recording of the gig.
Set list is:
2. I want to be there when you come.
3. Baseball Bill.
4. The Cutter.
5. Just a touch away.
8. I'll fly tonight.
9. Seven seas.
10. Villiers Terrace.
12. Lips like sugar.
13. Ocean rain.
14. Nothing lasts forever.

Lets hope the London gig later this year is made available, for those of us just a little curious to here the band complete with orchestra!
