Meliegree said:yes, but I don't think that Bruce is that kind of person. You know - I can imagine him in many situations on stage but sitting for 18 minutes is not one of them. But from the other hand - I'm sure that he can make this cool. Imagine him sitting and playing this in clothes from 1929, I'm quite sure that he would like this.
I haven't heard the track - but from what I've read in reviews and from what people have been telling then they could really blow all the special effects on this one. Imagine black and white photos of the airship/people on the backdrop...Huge pyro and explosion sounds during the "Crash" and think of all the light effects on the stage they could use to tell the story too...The arena going dark in the crash for example....I think for this reason, it could really be a spectacle and a truely cinematic thing. They've tried telling a story using the stage props before - Paschendale, Rime, etc - But with Empire of the Clouds they could really do it.
