Ellie has already posted her review and a few photos from tonight's show in Cologne. Sound like a great show! Full review is below the jump. Photos are on her Facebook page. Thanks!
What a show! A tad disappointed as usual as Mr.H has left out my fave fave song Busy Being Fabulous, grrr! But a shorter show no intermission and I can name 10 songs missing of sorts, from the usual set list.
The negatives ish, out of the way FANTASTIC as ever! But Mr.H I do think the beard has to go, he does look like a hillbilly gold mining prospector with it, I hope I haven't offended anyone no offence meant.
So the set list,
As usual they started with Seven Bridges road and How Long. Then a surprise change to the line up (and some new jokes and choreography!)
(Btw not necessarily in the correct order except the beginning and the encore)
Take it to the limit
I can't tell you why
Long road out of eden
Lyin eyes (still doin the plaintiff joke! But said about writing it in london england of all places and sharing a room with Don, then adding in separate beds I might add!)
Peaceful easy feeling
Boys of summer (thud!)
Dirty laundry (triple thud!)
Life in the fastlane (Don didn't play drums on this came up front and played guitar which was thud worthy ;) )
The long run (Don took the mic tried a bit of German and then spoke had a laugh about something but his voice was really deep and rough sounding. Quadruple thud!)
Lifes been good (Joe Joe Joe, what can I say! He tried to get the crowd to repeat sounds after him, and they did while I was rotflmao! Brilliant!)
In the city
Take it easy
Rocky mountain way
I can name 10 songs we sometimes get, but 21 and no break, the sweat was pouring off me and Don! Bless him, the others seem to be ok! Must be us tubby ones who feel it.
Oh and what's with scott and his flat granddad cap! Should ditch it!
Did think the audience was a bit flat, didn't get up and dance as much but when they did they got going!
They have added some new pics in the dirty laundry and lifes been good video montage thingy. And glenn still did the 10 10 thing to someone on the front row, and Don handed out 3 sets of drumsticks and glenn a plectrum same with timmy and joe.
I have a croaky voice a headache and a dodgy ear that goes deaf during the really loud parts, I might try a banner for tomorrow, see if annett can help me with it as I'm second row tomorrow, I want Don's drumsticks!! Lol
So AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME!
