Wonderland show is weird and wonderful
This is a show where anything goes, where the boys have thrown whatever they feel like into a weird melting pot of ideas. Wonderland encompasses a lot of strange things, including a Mad Hatter. There’s a sitar player on a floating magic carpet, men dressed like Poldark on stilts, a flying swan and a Roman gladiator with a very funky helmet.
Because they do no fewer than six tracks from Wonderland. Fair enough, the tour is to promote that, though maybe a lot of fans would prefer to have more of the old tracks we know much better and can sing along to. There may not be a 70 foot robot or a mechanical elephant, but the lighting effects are clever, especially during The Flood, where glow in the dark rain makes its debut. The boys may go off after their traditional encore song, but that’s not quite the end, because they return for Rule the World. And you don’t want to miss that spine-tingling feeling when everyone waves their lit-up phones and sings along.
