Review

Graham Bonnet knows what the audience wants to hear when he´s out touring, and it´s not songs from Blackthorne, Taz Taylor Band or his latest project Ezoo.
 
But instead, the setlist is almost identical as the bonus disc of re-recorded songs on The Book album last year, with a selection of Bonnet´s most popuar songs from his time in bands like Rainbow, MSG, Alcatrazz, Impelliteri and his solo hits "S.O.S" and "Night Games".
 
The new live album "Here comes the night" is recorded at the Frontiers Rock Festival in April 2016 and I must say that the 69 year old singer sings just as good today as he did when he was younger and recorded all those original versions in the 70´s and 80´s.
 
His backing band does a good job on songs like "Night Games", "Eyes of the world", "Island in the sun" and "Since you been gone". But it´s not the best versions I´ve heard of "Stand in line", "God blessed video", "Assault attack" and "Desert song". Guitarist Conrado Pesinato is struggling to keep up with the axework on the original versions by Chris Impelliteri, Steve Vai and Michael Schenker.
 
The keyboards are too low in the mix and the use of backing tracks with the background vocals only feels like a black mark in the overall impression, because in it´s entirety, you can´t really argue with a live album that features so many classic songs from a rock legend.
