I will be at the London and New York gigs - one of my friends is going to all the UK gigs but I can't get the time off work.  I promise to post after the gigs.

Sheffield and Edinburgh gigs were great!!! Justin and the band are in top form and they sound so good!!!!! Played lots of the songs from the Great War and a few Del Amitri tracks... I promise to post a longer message after the London gig tomorrow!

Hi everybody? Somebody? Anybody?
Well, I made a promise so here you have a brief recount of the wonders of Justin's recent tour in the UK... In celebration of the US tour that starts today!!!!
First of all, the setlist from Edinburgh's concert on the 22nd of May. The previous day in Sheffield was almost the same but it was a shorter set because of a fire alarm that went off between the supporter (Tommy Reilly) and Justin's performance. The place had to be evacuated for an hour but the people at the O2 Sheffield Academy permitted to go on after the curfew, so I think, only two or 3 songs were missing. In the hour out on the street Justin had time to sign autographs to practically all the audience... So here's the setlist:
Ready To Be
Can't Let Go of Her Now
Just Like a Man
As Long As you don't Come Back
Anywhere I'm Away from You
When I want You
At Home Inside of Me
The Last To Know
You'll Always Walk Alone
Here & Now
A Man with Nothing to Do
Everyone I Love
Move Away Jimmy Blue
Not Where It's At
The Fight to Be Human
---
If I Ever Loved You
Driving With the Brakes On
---
Be My Downfall
No, Surrender

I think the choice of songs was great, starting with "Ready to Be", and the combination of old Del tracks with practically the whole new record was really compensated. The new songs sound great live ("Everyone I love" keeps getting better and better and "The Fight to Be Human" is completely overwhelming...). Justin played a beautiful red electric guitar (among other acoustics) and the band was really into it, more rockier than the last tour. They all seemed to enjoy a lot on stage! London's show was basically the same but with "In the Frame" (a request), "Nothing Ever Happens" and "Buttons on My Clothes"... I was told that he also played "Sleep Instead of Teardrops" in one of the other shows I didn't go to.... I'll try to post some pics in the next few days. I'm sure other fans also took photos and have videos so maybe we can put up some links here... Cheers! Cris

Funny, no one mentioned the change of guitar player in Wychwood festival... I was told that it's Mick Slaven instead of Stuart Nisbett...

Hi!
here you have some pics from Sheffield's concert in May... I know it took me a long time, but as no one comes here anymore, I don't think it really matters...  :'(
