It was a perfect day for an outstanding performance by Lindsey Stirling, the celebrated violinist and dubstep artist, supported by Dia Frampton's new project Archis, comprising Dia, Meg and Carlo. The Great Saltair venue was soon packed to the doors with around 1,000 fans!
Those who arrived early enough managed to get prime spots close to the stage when the doors opened soon after 6 p.m. The music started at 7 sharp, when Dia Frampton and her band opened in the slightly cramped front of the stage, behind which was a floor to ceiling black veil. They performed for a full hour, after which the expectant audience waited patiently with house music playing until the moment when two red spotlights showed through the black veil, and Lindsey performed her first song from her latest album and the view of her became clearer. Then the veil was lifted out of the way and Lindsey's exceptional dancing with her violin against a backdrop of video screens, with keyboards and drummer either side of them at the rear of the stage. Lindsey needs a lot of room to perform her spectacular dancing, and the giant stage was far superior in this respect than her previous appearances at In The Venue.
