Comments : After seeing two shows on the Push The Sky Away tour, I was not especially excited to go to Toronto tonight; very sad but true. However, we got something really special tonight: the band was accompanied on stage by strings (including Sophie from GY!BE) and a children's choir. I admit I was a bit sceptical at first, but it worked extremely well with the Bad Seeds. The new songs sounded great and I don't think I have ever enjoyed hearing the "The Ship Song" or "O Children" live this much. The show itself was much tighter than the others and really met our expectations. A very good one !
