Supporting Portishead, in a Roman amphitheatre. Mogwai on stage 8.15pm
In Nimes opening for Portishead. We're playing in an ancient Roman amphitheater. Probably the coolest place we've ever played. Martin has bought a helmet and a sword.
From Dominic, later the same evening:
Local crew guy unplugged the click track during the first song tonight. The minute of free jazz that followed was pretty sweet.
Beautiful sound, not loud enough anyway. Mogwai seemed to be very excited to play in this wonderful place and the audience got involved more and more during the show. Barry went on stage with a Roman legionary helmet :)
