bit of a disappointment to be honest: far too much reliance on the audience so it was really stop/start, full of annoying kids and GZA seemed like he didn't know he had a crowd in front of him half the time

The support act just shouted over lack lustre beats, the DJ was out of sync and all over the place with both acts and as for Gza, he had one hand in his pocket for the entire set, he really couldnt be a**ed or he was drunk, either way it was a piss poor gig.

20 to another hip hop legend roll out another call and answer snore fest, when will I learn? The sound system was crap as well.

The sounds quality was awful- terrible. The warm up act was terrible and looked it a failed Britain got talent act.
The dj continually cutting the music out at during ever tune was irritating and out of sync.

worst gig is a long time.

The GZA show was moved from the smaller St Lukes church to the larger cavernous SWG3 probably due to ticket demand. However this switch didnt really suit the music as alot of the detail was drowned out with a muddy sound. It was hard to tell what song was being played at times. The GZAs performance lacked energy. There was no real build up to his stage entrance or introduction to the playback of his best album. It just sort of started and he was on stage before the music kicked in. The warm up act were the watermen who are a current hip hop act which may not have been a good match for the show. Their own productions were much more high energy and sonically impactful than anything on liquid swords. Production has moved on from the 90s. One patron asked me if one was from the migos which says it all, Scottish rap fans are 90s rap fans and few are up on current trends. Any rapper with dreads to them must be a migos. The watermen were told in earshot of the audience to hurry up as they had a schedule to stick to. Never seen that at a gig before. The GZA basically dialed in a performance with lots of gaps in his flow to allow for fan sing a longs. Not much energy. Once the liquid swords tracks were done he followed it up with some wu tang stuff. All in all quite an average show. Looking forward to the Gods of Rap show so hope they bring more energy to that.

Where to start? Liquid swords is an all time classic, so this gig came with pretty high expectations.

The venue was completely overbooked, far too busy and didnt really suit the occasion.

The sound was terrible, you couldnt really make out what was being said. I did however get impression GZA was MWI!

He had no crew on stage with him, despite videos online showing a full crew rapping with him at other stops on the tour. He stood with his hands in his pockets for the whole time.

They cut arguably the best song (4th Chamber) short - maybe suggesting it would be kept for an encore.

In the end, the gig was cut off at ten PM just as a song was about to start.

Im not sure who is to blame, be it the venue or GZA, but ultimately both share a responsibility.

The atmosphere was pretty poor and the gig never seemed to get going.

All in all a total disappointment.

the support act on before him was terrible didn't belong at this venue. secondly the support act came back on stage and hung around on their phones treating the stage as a bar just as bored as I was. GZA was clearly uninterested doesn't have any passion for rapping. I couldn't make out anything as he wasnt singing/rapping or putting any kind of effort in. I go to alot of rap gigs. this has been the worst
