Steven Wilson @ The Vogue Theatre – November 15th 2018

British prog rock band Steven Wilson started off their second North American tour of the latest album ‘To The Bone’ at the Vogue Theatre. The crowd were seated for a 3-hour rocking bonanza with extremely talented musicians.

An announcement on the PA was made for the audience to view several images with words associated to see how they would react before the band came on stage. Five silhouettes appeared and ‘Nowhere Now’ started off with keyboard player Adam Holzman playing the opening notes as Steven Wilson was lit up at the front of the stage singing. As the first song came to a close, the lights went out and Steven was handed an acoustic guitar before the LED screen projected the face of Ninet Tayeb for her part on their track ‘Pariah’.

Steven then addressed the audience and cracked jokes about the fact his shows are seated but will request a few minutes to stand and dance for his more “pop” style song, ‘Permanating’. The lights shined rainbow colours as if it were a 70’s disco. At the end of the second set the crowd were far from ready to go home. They cheered as Steven came back on stage on his own with a strat guitar. He proceeded to turn on the amp behind him and did a “busker” style rendition of Porcupine Tree’s ‘Even Less’.

The show ended with his infamous ‘The Raven That Refused to Sing‘ song with the emotional animated video displayed on the screen leaving everyone captivated.
