St. David's Cathedral in Hobart to see Seeker Lover Keeper play a sold out show. This Heavenly Sounds tour is taking place in churches and cathedrals around the country. Not only are the venues and acoustics amazing, but the crowd is silent and attentive during the songs. What a luxury these days for an Australian show.
The opening act was Henry Wagons of the band Wagons. He was great and played a set of country tinged music solo on acoustic guitar. Henry was very entertaining with his stage banter and had a song about "Willie Nelson," his own version of "The Gambler," and requested that guys don't date his sister on "Keep Your Eyes Off My Sister."
Seeker Lover Keeper started the evening with "Bring You Back." Sarah, Sally and Holly were in a relaxed and fun mood throughout the night, and their voices and harmonies in that cathedral sounded fantastic. They played the entire Seeker Lover Keeper album and highlights included "Light All My Lights," "Everytime," "We Will Know What It Is" and the always moving "If The Night Is Dark" (with my favorite lyric "This is my home, this is where I belong"). We even got their They Will Have Their Way contribution of Neil Finn's "Sinner," which was an interesting cover choice considering the venues on this tour. They also each played one of their own songs, with Sarah doing "Bird On A Wire," Sally playing New Buffalo's "Emotional Champ," and Holly doing "What I Thought Of You." The main set ended with "Rest Your Head On My Shoulder" and for the encore they played a cover of Stevie Nick's "Wild Heart" and then finished with "Even Though I'm A Woman." It was exciting to see these three ladies play together live again before they head back to their respective solo careers.
