What a wonderful concert last night... The second best of Mogwai I've seen in Rome. The top-list one is still the "mystical" gig at Ancient Roman Amphiteater of Ostia Antica (Mr. Beast Tour).
But the last night concert was powerful and yet intimate. I liked the setlist and the boys seemed to be very happy to play in Rome again: they were joyful and communicative with the warm audience. Majestic versions of "I'm Jim Morrison, I'm Dead", "We're No Here" and "How To Be a Werewolf". They love their new songs, it is clear enough. "You're Lionel Richie" is now different from the studio version: it doesn't include the Italian dialogue anymore.
Only the encores let me down, apart from "Auto Rock", no big "epic" one. I can do without "Batcat", believe me. I hoped for "My Father, My King" until the end.
