"The church shimmer in historic performance"
"Textures. Beyond the brilliant songwriting, it’s the sonic textures that make The Church my favorite band on the planet. You can tell how much attention they pay to getting the right sound for every song. A dazzling blend of guitar tones from Peter Koppes and Marty Willson-Piper, astute drumming by Tim Powles and sharp bass playing from Steve Kilbey waxes and wanes from melodic to dissonant to ethereal and back again; it’s stunning ensemble work that frames Kilbey’s distinctive baritone voice as he intones a rush of imaginative lyrics that wander from wry to surreal: The Church sound like no other band, and create a memorable flow of music that resonates deep in my brain."
"a bold move that paid off as another great, unique moment in a tremendous thirty-year career"
"The roar of the crowd is still inside me, and I imagine will be for some days to come. I have said to everyone who has asked me about the show that it’s nights like this that you live for."
"the church transported me into another universe, just as Steve told me they would.
"After three hours of marvellous music, the church received a standing ovation as they bowed before walking offstage. The band delivered a once-in-a-lifetime performance. They truly provided each fan with an unforgettable night"
"the church remains a tight and magnetic union"
“.."Taking the safe path has never been the band’s shtick, however, so it was little surprise that the 2,000+ capacity gig sold out quickly, with fans flying in from far flung parts of the world to make it.".. ”
