THE FEELING PLAY THEIR FIRST CANADIAN CONCERT - AMAZING!:
I had the great pleasure of seeing The Feeling live in Toronto last night. They put on an amazing energy filled live set that proved they should have been the headliners (instead of The Fray). In the lineup to get into the gig I did mention to some teenage girls that they will really like the opening band and that I thought they were better than the headliners. If they didn't agree with me after seeing the concert they don't know their music.
I was also lucky enough the meet all the guys in The Feeling after their set as they came out in the entrance area of the Kool Haus to meet their fans. I heard Dan talking about how much he enjoyed visiting Las Vegas, and they all seemed eager to break into the North American market once the album is released here. They were all very nice and I even managed to get my picture taken with them before heading in to give The Fray a listen (they didn't impress me, somewhat boring and the songs tend to all sound the same).
The good news is The Feeling will be on tour in North America in March 2007 when Interscope finally releases 'Twelve Stops And Home'. I picked up a cool 2 disc promo package of the Sewn cd single and a DVD of the Sewn music video at a shop in the U.S. and on it the label says the album will be out in September 2006 but I guess the record company decided to delay the release. I just hope that the label over here gives the disc the proper promotion it deserves as it is definitely one of the best records of 2006. A great band that deserves to be huge around the world.
