On the not so good side I can only say that the sound in the Palladium was awful. The sound guys forgot to turn on the microphone for Win a number of times. Apart from that they had a big problem with songs that had just a little bit more bass in them. Due to the fact that volumes were already at max the extra basses turned the Palladium into a big bowl of acoustic soup. That way at least three songs, including “Black Mirror”, got completely ruined. Thanks guys.
