What people are saying about Swans

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome, awesome band. Swans did what they do best - amazing, artistic noise. This is supposed to be the last tour as the current incarnation. I hope not, because they managed to play a 3-hour set without stopping. Perfect acoustics, excellent set, superb live presence. Need I say more?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much more than just a concert, this was a spiritual experience. Can't believe Swans are planning to retire after this tour. As the title suggests they transcended mere music to produce something of a spiritual experience. Over 2 and a half hours of genius. Support from Anna Von Hausswolf was excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Catharsis Seeing the Swans was possibly one of the most extreme and cathartic musical experiences, maybe even life experiences, I have ever had. It took me through a whole world of darkness and then out the other side feeling purged. Incredible. The Assembly rooms is a great venue - intimate, but big enough for a huge sound, and the best sound quality I've heard for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not a gig but an experience!! Saw Swans more than 30 years ago when they sounded very different; haven't seen them since until this evening. Possibly the best thing I've ever seen on a stage .... quite astonishing!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ambivalence Loved it and hated it at the same time. Girl I went with left halfway through, she couldn't bear the volume. Screen Shot was incredible, and I really enjoyed bits of the Knot and The Glowing Man, but for large portions of the concert they were playing songs I just couldn't really get in to. Repetitiveness really was pushed a bit beyond the bearable limit, and a lot of the time the build-ups just weren't as effective as on record. In particular the two 'Cloud' songs just didn't really do much for me. I wish they'd played a bit more stuff from To Be Kind. I would have loved to hear stuff like A Little God In My Hands, Just A Little Boy or Oxygen (and also Lunacy obviously). Many of the songs I like from their other albums (including The Glowing Man) have female vocals so naturally they couldn't have played those, but yeah, frustrating, lots of potential, but a poor set selection, reminded me of when I saw Animal Collective on the Painting With tour. Nevertheless Michael Gira's stage presence alone made it worthwhile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unexplainable The opening act set the standard high for performance. But as soon as swans came on with blistering noise and an energy not before seen my mind was blown. Bordering on a religious experience, they are not a live band to miss.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The most expected show for me It was my first time at O2 Ritz. The venue is indeed lovely and the first concert by Anna von Hausswolf was quite amazing. Swans in concert was something I was expecting for a long time but the problems started as soon as Anna's concert ended. I was petrified when I saw Mr. Gira carrying his own bottles of water to the stage and even more petrified when we all had to watch Christoph Hahn "upholstering" his seat in order to make it more comfortable. This defined everything as really unprofessional. It looked like the concert was being organized by a bunch of amateurs. In the meanwhile the room was getting fuller and fuller but it was never at the "packed" stage. Even so the heat inside the room ultimately became unbearable and no aircon to be seen. It is outrageous that a room like O2 Ritz, charging as much as they did for a show like this fails to provide for the most basic conditions. The worst part about this concert was the sound system. It has been a while since I assisted a concert with such a poor sound system and Swans should have been respected by being provided with the coolest system around. I really don't understand how such an amateur image was conveyed throughout the night and how does O2 Ritz fails to provide for the basic. It was a dream come true to see Swans on a stage live but this could have been an unforgettable concert if it wasn't for the conditions in which the concert was held.
