FAC51: THE HACIENDA Tickets
Sorry there are no shows for FAC51: THE HACIENDA right now.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Laura fortune from Anti climac My husband and i went regularly to the original hacienda so were very excited to have the opportunity to go to a revival night. We had been to sankeys over Christmas where graham park and mike Pickering were playing and they were outstanding and made us hungry for more so when the tickets came up for sale for the Albert hall we bought them instantly! We loved the venue,fantastic space,very dramatic and we were geared up to stay till the end. We tried to find timings for the playlist but to no avail and were rather confused when Mike Pickering played early on,he whipped us up to a frenzy and then left and the music went down hill from then on in,we thought that perhaps with him being such a legend and it being such a big night that he was going to come on again for the final set so we waited,the crowd thinned out dramatically and the incredible atmosphere that Pickering had created started to diminish,the regular hacienda goers started to leave and it became like a student night out with groups starting to sit down on the steps chatting rather than deciding. We went to find out what was going on,no one knew anything until I spoke to a lighting guy who told me Pickering was not going to return. Totally deflated we decided to leave. This was not the ending we had expected. We had looked forwards for this night since buying the tickets and we feel that we have been completely let down. All the ingredients were there to make it a Brilliant night to keep the memory of the legendary hacienda alive,instead they had been mixed up in the wrong order to leave a bitter taste in our mouth- A total anti-climax.
