From Antti: "Another epic night! Bumped into Alison from Cranes during the gig. She is so lovely. "
From Journey to the Center of My Record Collection: "Just got to the apollo. Could see the merch stall through the door and it's the same t shirt as last night so a fair bet that we get a similar set."
JC/Perfect.Murder will be providing the live setlist reports again tonight, but for the first time in ages, Olivier will be not be at the show. :( So if anyone would be willing to be backup tonight, I'd really appreciate it. Email me at craigatcof (at) gmail (dot) com or @CraigatCoF on Twitter. Thanks!
And don't get all mad and upset if the show is similar to last night. The t-shirts make it very clear (Top artwork, dates for all 3 nights on it) that these are Top 30th anniversary celebration shows, not Trilogy 3. Don't expect Head on the Door in full tonight. Unless you get there and see a HotD t-shirt for sale. :) Would love to be proven wrong, though! Just lower expectations a bit, and don't complain if they don't do HotD tonight, and Kiss Me tomorrow.
Have a wonderful time tonight!
