Frontman David Bayley dominated the stage with tremendous reserves of energy and exuberance and offered the right amount of sincerity and showmanship, the rest of the band offered equally strong chemistry as well showcasing their musical diversity effectively. Their setlist as well managed to breathtakingly bring to life many of Dreamland’s standout cuts such as “Tangerine”, “Hot Sugar” and “Toyoko Drifting” while also seamlessly fitting in established classics in their catalog like “The Other Side of Paradise”, “Life Itself” and “Pork Soda.” Each song built off the other effortlessly and the band expertly managed to deliver grand anthems alongside their more personal material with artistry and flair.
