#81 Hothouse Flowers @ Dublin Olympia Theatre (November 7th 2002)

Hothouse Flowers @ Dublin Olympia Theatre November 7th 2002

Support: Ricky Warwick / Special Guest: Colin Devlin

Ricky Warwick supported tonight (he of Almighty fame) and showed off a more mellow, acoustic side to himself. Have to say he was very good.

This was the second time seeing the Flowers live but the first as headliners. This was a cracking gig. The band was on great form, maybe because it was Liam O'Maonlaí's birthday or maybe because it was their first time playing Dublin in a while. Whatever the reason they really took my breath away this night.

Since this gig I have seen them many times over the years. Although always good I don't think any has topped this one. They became one of my favourite bands.

A hard working band that always gives their all. Highly recommended.

Ticket: November 7th 2002
