LIVE: The Treatment – Limelight, Belfast
Following a hectic week of rock n roll excess in London I found myself back on home turf with two UK bands playing in Belfast.
One local with retro rockers Maverick and Cambridge-based The Treatment still riding on the crest of a massive wave. Unfortunately the unusual hot summer sun appears to have distracted the rock punters of our shores to attend this evenings show. The last two appearances by The Treatment in Northern Ireland have been well attended but tonight’s audience figure at its peak probably represents only around fifty. This is very surprising for a band that had played a packed Pepsi Max stage at the Download Festival just a few days previously. Explanation of this, well I am not entirely sure but certainly the current rumour regarding the band using “backing tapes” in their live set may have played a small part.
