I stuck around lucky enough to catch return of The Verve, opening their set with “This Is Music” and subsequently swelling the dusky desert with loud and resonant Brit-pop electric guitar. After a much needed break for beers, brats and an incredible showing from The Swell Season (Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova of Once), I got the ethereal experience and privilege of hearing “Lucky Man” and “Bittersweet Symphony” performed live. I’ll always remember lead singer Richard Ashcroft holding the microphone against his chest to amplify his beating heart as he finished singing the song and the controversial Rolling Stones sampled strings resonated over the excited crowd.

The Verve are also playing Las Vegas and 2 NYC shows while they’re in our country.
