Is this Live or was Johnny just talking to himself? It sounded like there were only 20 people in the audience and most of the time they didn’t respond to his tries to get them excited. I think at one time some guy was answering him and it sounded like the two of them were the only two there. Terrible show! But don’t get me wrong, i love Hardline, but get their studio CDs. Besides Johnny writes better lyrics than he speaks.

This has to be one of THE worst live performances I have ever heard. The background singers in particular are just ghastly….oversinging and WAY off key!!! Plus there is just way too much use of the F word. Audience even seems disgusted or bored. Worst live recording ever.
The two reviewers below me don’t know anything about the problems during this show.
Once you get to know about the problems this is still a good show. Hardline headlined “The Gods Festival” in Bradford, England in 2002 at 1AM. They were very tired.
They were also suffering Sound Problems with the microphones.
The back up singer’s microphones were broken that’s why they don’t sound good. They are trying to hear Johnny’s voice but they can’t well since the other instruments are too loud. If you get the DVD version, we see Johnny Gioeli angrily walking off the stage during Face the Night because the Audio Equipment isn’t fixed yet. However during Takin’ Me Down things start sounding better.
The audience is very nice and they applaud during each song (I think they understand that Hardline were very tired!) and the audience were very tired too, that’s why they sound a bit quiet. If you also get the DVD you’ll notice that there are lots of people in the audience. It’s the way it’s recorded that makes the audience sound quiet but you see a lot of people getting into the show. It’s only for Must Have hardline fans. Especially the CD version that contain 3 bonus tracks originally for Hardline II, “Hypnotized”, “Only a Night (acoustic Version)” and “Mercy”.
