JOHN FOGERTY  Royal Albert Hall, London 23 June 2008

What a disappointment - after his great performance at Wembley last year when he stormed through great songs non-stop I was expecting a lot at the Royal Albert Hall but it was an ersatz performance spoilt completely by the fact that it was recorded for a DVD.

The set was lame, the 'jokes' and comments incredibly showbiz and corny and too many songs for 'lets do something different for the DVD sales'.

There was a 30 minute break after 30 minutes so John could change his makeup for the DVD - any momentum building up was lost - the DVD film guys were prancing round the stage all night.

John, if you want to make money then don't do it by charging fans full price (it cost 85 for 2 tickets) so they can see you perform averagely and help you make a DVD for sale.

The DVD guys desperately went round inviting selected members of the audience to go to the front and act excited for 2 hours so the DVD looks good! - they even asked 'do you know the words to CCR songs/'!!)

There were lots of negative comments from the audience all saying the Wembley and Glastonbury performances were great but this was really poor. What a shame!
