Just watched the full show. I forgot how relentless the setlist was. Phew.
So many highlights - After the Love Has Gone, Something in Your Eyes, The Slightest Touch, Devil/Vogue, Summer of Love to name a few. The ever-so-slightly clubbier version of Scared of the Dark is also great.
You can tell it was Faye’s first
and last show back, she has an extra fire in her belly which is wonderful to see.
After the Love Has Gone, Last Thing on My Mind, Heartbeat were completely absent of Lee footage which is really unfortunate, especially on Heartbeat. I for one really missed him - Steps just isn’t the same without all 5.
Some of the editing was a choice, but the fact that we got this at all is a miracle.
Overall, the DVD/Blu-ray has captured the feeling at that time. Excitement, nervousness, panic, relief. It’s been a strange experience seeing it once again, and it’s an experience we’ll hopefully never have to deal with again in that way (as great as the show and Steps are).
