I just secured tickets to the Cleveland show for this coming December. Not only do I get to see Goblin, but Zombi is also going to be there. I'm so happy they could bring this tour to a venue close to me. Tickets were very reasonably priced too.
Anyone here catch the New York City gigs? My wife & I were at the one at Webster Hall on Monday.
So now I can die a happy man.
They were fabulous! They did stuff from every phase of their four-decade career, included all the great numbers, left out nothing essential. They sounded great and they looked like they were having a great time as well. I guess they've never toured in the US because they thought that nobody really knew them here. But they sold out three NYC gigs really fast, and Marge & I both had the impression that they were truly touched at the raucous affection of the crowd. They have long been legends in their own little genre-drenched corner of the musical universe, and they may have been surprised to discover that the corner is bigger than they'd thought. I was a little surprised myself at how young the crowd was--lotsa people in their thirties, even though Goblin were hot for about five years in the 1970s.
Marge loved it too, very impressed by their totally original sound, excellent musicianship and their hard-driving energy.
With luck this tour will be so successful that they'll do it again soon. I'd be interested to hear what other people who've caught them on this tour think.
