It’s 2008 and FIREFLIGHT had just released their “new record” UNBREAKABLE!
I’m pretty fond of the FIREFLIGHT DVD: Front Row Live (2008) cable concert – I watch clips of it frequently.
This concert is visually great, and it also has some raw instrument and singing moments I enjoy a lot. Dawn, of course, is gorgeous with beautiful hair, the “Unbreakable era” look, and providing some nice hair-whipping & headbanging she’s well known for. Justin looks WILD and has such a fantastic backing voice, tonally fitting perfectly against Dawn’s lead vocals. There’s a cool moment when Glenn and Wendy play an intro face to face, Glenn is beaming – it’s pretty awesome. There’s no strong Phee spotlight on this one, no big drum solos, but he rocks it well as he usually does.
Okay back to the DVD itself… Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find it for purchase anywhere in a 2017 search (still looking!). In the meantime, there are quite a few cut up sets online of the concert – some are quite low quality, others are higher viewing quality, but are not synced well, so… the only thing to do is pick a few good ones and leave the rest of the search to you! For now, we’ve got a couple of attractive screenshots, as well as a couple of the videos that worked pretty well. Enjoy!
