Thank you so much to , & for the setlist reports! And to the great for the scopes!

  1. Have a great time everyone!Should be a cracking show.

  2. Does anyone know of any bars right around the venue where people are meeting prior to the show?

  3. Echoing. IpinchU's request. This will be my last of 13 dates I made this year. Hopefully we will get some more obscurities tonight. Perhaps Snakepit Chain of Flowers and the one I saw in New Orleans on the second night Same Deep Water....

  4. Replies
    1. I'm off to Lisbon in the mornimg. Hopefully Twitter works better for me at the MEO

  5. Erm, if the cups are metal, can I buy one off of someone?

  6. Same setlist as Amsterdam till now. Maybe The Blood will make it's premiere?

  7. Simon's wearing t-shirt with a special print "vangie 16". his daughter has birthday today. for those who are wondering...

  8. Just back from the third gig of my personal cure tour 2026. Solid mainset with a beautiful surprise: The Blood, played for the first time in the tour. Despite the voice's problems, robert is in good mood.
    Personal higlights: the blood, 100 years, it can never be the same, from the edge of the deep green sea.
    Crowd was a little too quiet from my point of view: I was first raw, just under Roger and, with the exception of a few person, no one singed the songs.

    Last but not least: Twilight sad set was beautiful tonight.

    Next stop for me: London night 2.

    Cheers to everybody.

    1. Totally agree. The Blood was excellent. The crowd was definitely inconsistent in its applause throughout the show.

    2. Yes, it was a bit weird. First raws usally are more involved in the show. Yesterday it wasn't. Anyway, a lot of compliments to the spiderman in the crowd and to the guy with the sign request For Bilbao ;).

    3. The guy dressed as spiderman was awesome (we must have been standing right next to each other)

    4. I was under Roger, first raw...on the right I remember the guy with the sign For Bilbao Show :)...

  9. Wow...Kyoto song!! sooo sensuous, so real..Robbie looks great and I love the dip into the drink amid song...I love everything about watching this man perform to heights that few of this or any generation could do. it is simply mystical. :) always, d
