The Vogue Theatre, Vancouver played host to one of the pioneers of electronic music on Monday night, when Gary Numan brought the Second Savage tour to the city.
For the second time in less than a year Gary Numan was back in Vancouver. Having played at the Rickshaw Theatre in November 2017, Numan was returning, this time to the Vogue Theatre, with an experience that was very different, with a bigger stage and more drama.
Los Angeles rockers Nightmare Air opened the show for Gary Numan at the Vogue Theatre on Monday.

After an absence of five years, Wintersun were back in Vancouver this week, along with Ne Obliviscaris and Sarah Longfield.
The Vogue Theatre Vancouver, was the latest stop on Wintersun’s Forest Seasons Tour. I was excited for this show as I had not seen either Wintersun, or the other two acts in the bill, Ne Obliviscaris, or Sarah Longfield previously. It was five years since Wintersun had been to Vancouver, last time playing at the smaller Rickshaw Theatre. The size of the crowd, and also, as it turned out, the size of the stage backdrops for both Ne Obliviscaris and Wintersun made the Vogue a great choice this time around.
If you like your blues served heavy with driving guitars, then Jonny Lang’s performance at the Orpheum in Vancouver last night was right up your alley.
It barely seems 5 minutes since he was last here at the Commodore back in November. This time around the setting was a little bigger and a little more refined, but the set was just as hard hitting, and an interesting compliment to Mavis Staples who opened the evening. Continue reading “Jonny Lang – Orpheum Theatre, Vancouver – September 24th, 2018”
Mavis Staples is a tour de force. Her show at the Orpheum Theatre on Monday night sometimes resembled a revival meeting, with Staples rousing her converts to ever more vigorous cheering and applause.
Staples held the audience in her hands right from the start, and didn’t let them go until she had actually shaken the hands of a good number of them
