Tangerine Dream at Best Buy Theater – 7/7/12
Tangerine Dream

Tangerine Dream are currently on a tour which brought them to their first NYC show in about two decades on Saturday (7/7) at Best Buy Theater. They took the stage about a half hour later than planned, but then graced the audience with a 2 hour and 45 minute set. Since 1988, the only original member who remains in the lineup is Edgar Froese, who leads the band from his keys. The NY Times offered their thoughts on the show, giving it a bit of a mixed reaction, and mentioning that the show-offy guitar playing of Bernhard Beibl was at times reminiscent of ’80s pop hits:

On Saturday Tangerine Dream’s two generous sets wandered between the hypnotic and the cheesy. Pieces like “One Night in Space” stacked rhythms — metronomic programmed beats, a throbbing bass undertow, crosscurrents of percussion, percolating arpeggios from keyboards and guitar — that promised ceaseless, dizzying motion, the kind of rush through abstract voids that was shown on a video screen above the musicians.

Regardless of any lower points, it was a great opportunity to see the band back in a city they hadn’t visited in so long. If you made it out to the show, what did you think?
