Live is great, and I have been to many of their concerts, bought all their CDs, and met them a few times, but they have a HUGE problem, one that no one would have anticipated in back in 1989, in York.

It is IMPOSSIBLE to search for "Live" on the internet and find them! They have the absolute worst name in the music world. They are completely anonymous in cyberspace, Google, the iTunes Store, Ticketmaster, etc. Just try searching for "Live" and see how long it takes to find them.

I firmly believe that they would be MUCH more successful today, if they had chosen a name other than "Live". This was particularly true during the critical internet boom era of the late-1990s, when they were just trying to break out.

They should have just kept to their original name, Public Affection. Even searching for THAT long-abandoned name finds Live, but who would know to do that!

Think about it.

I was at the concert and it was a good concert. Only one complaint, the chairs are not auditorium in nature (step seating) so if you get one or two small groups in front of you standing, you now have to stand. While I know the music is cool and standing is often the way to go at concerts, I paid the same amount of money and if i want to sit, I should be able to sit and enjoy the concert. I couldn't see anything when people were standing, therefore I had to stand and block other peoples view.

Musikfest, get with the program! Either create step seating or seperate standing room only area and then a seating area! This is common practice at other venues. 25 years and you still haven't figured this out.

Good show though.

Well I wasn't able to sit in my seat for the whole show either - but it is because I didn't want to! How could you, with the way these guys rock? Another top-notch performance from the boys from York. I can't get enough of them.

How do you think the bands would feel if no one was standing? Their job is gettin you up off your a**. Loosen up and have a good time!
