Hey I´ll be there too. I was wondering if there were any meet ups that you were aware of? I´d enjoy something like that! Let me know if you or anyone is interested.

As the door opens at 8 p.m. and there is no seats, I suppose we'll all meet there at the doors. See you there!!

Brian for the first half or so seemed ver animated and into it surprisingly. But towards the end he barely even moved or anything. I guess he just gets tired or I´m not sure. Looks like he has a tough time walking as well.  No video tribute to Carl and Dennis nor was there an intermission.  They just kept rolling along. It was  a nice night but more or less a meat and potatoes audience that seemed bewildered when they heard stuff like ¨All This is That¨

Al had a big part but Bruce mainly stayed back up vocals and getting the crowd into the show.  Wanted to hear ¨Disney Girls¨. . .

At the end the crowd shouted ¨Ole¨and Al came out to record it on his iphone.

Well actually it's surprisingly not too bad!
Am I blind or they didn't play "Isn't It Time"? Odd..
Good to see "Goot Timin'" and "All This Is That" but too bad for "Disney Girls", "California", "Pet Sounds", "Add Some Music" etc.

I guess we'll get something similiar at the Italian gigs.

That's crazy, they did (presumably) over two hours without a break!

Did they have the big "50" screen behind them with the videos and pictures? I'm guessing not - maybe it was too expensive to haul that stuff all across the world.

Yeah, I do hope they re-add at least I Just Wasn't Made For These Times. It's a decent enough set, but the songs they've dropped are, unsurprisingly, the ones I most want to hear.

Is it my imagination, or did they re-tool the encore songs so Brian could sit down for the last few songs?  Earlier in the tour, he ended the show on bass.  Now, it seems he does his bass bit, then when they come back for the encore, he sits down behind the keyboards until the end of the show.

That's a pretty conservative setlist.  I'm hoping that they do something more adventurous with the following European dates (and with the Japan dates!)

Just noticed "You're So Good To Me" is back - IIRC they haven't performed that in a while. I saw them do it in May and was impressed with Brian's vocal - sounded like '88!

Quite a few songs missing to my huge disappointment I have to say. Hardly anything from 1970 / 1973. I was really looking forward to Forever, This Whole World, California, or even Isn't it time. We DID get YSGTM, Dance dance dance and All summer long... but... mhhhhh.... Also no video screen, probably left behind in the US to cut on costs.

Brian and Jeff looked really tired during the second half. There were several mistakes by Cowsill who handled being yelled at by Scott T. very well Wink. Overall a very solid performance, lacking the extra songs for us fans who enjoy the deeper material. Great venue, nearly sold out I think. Mike was in great form, he's going to continue doing this for a long time I'd say. For me the first time seeing Al and David, very cool. Al's such a friendly guy.

(not sure if this was noted before, Mikey and Probyn both play bass on DDD)

*Really*?! I've never heard of Cowsill messing up. Between that and people talking about Brian and Jeff being tired, I wonder if there's some kind of problem behind the scenes? That would explain why they've dropped some of the more difficult songs, too.

(I'm not thinking here of major catastrophic problems, just maybe like there's a cold going round the band and they're all under the weather or something...)

I did not yell at John about any mistakes he may have made...Mike wanted to add ALL SUMMER LONG which wasn't on the setlist and I had to call out Cowsill and Darian on the mic to get their attention.

No video tributes to Carl and Dennis? Why might this be? I desperately hope they reinstate this for the Wembley, London show as I'd like to show my appreciation for them both.

I'd like to see some of the more rare songs played, but as long as GOK and Forever are done by the right people, I'll be happy.

It's easy to analyse every movement by the band, but as Scott has kindly said, normally there's just an innocent reason behind it all! It must be tough producing an amazing show night after night!

I'm just looking forward to what I know will be an amzing night in London and hope that all my faves and Carl/Dennis are played. Smiley

Could be any number of reasons -- could be that shipping the video screens across was too expensive, or that they've not arrived yet, or that union regulations mean they had to hire a different tour crew who haven't had a chance to learn the system yet, or some combination of those things.

Since they've not been seen at either Spanish show, I'd guess we probably won't see them on the main leg of the European tour, but since the London gigs are separated from the rest, who knows?

Also, since Scott's apparently reading this thread, I'd just like to say thanks for all his work both with this band and the Mike & Bruce band. It must be fairly thankless work in many ways, but he's always done a fantastic job.

Not just the 'co-musical-director' thing, but he also plays well each night and is awesome on Ballad of Ole' Betsy3D

He sat down with the bass during the encore? That's a new one.. Or do you mean he stayed put at his piano, without any bass? Then he probably wasn't in the mood for it.

There are two videos of BA from Avila and Barcelona, and in both videos Brian is at his piano. The Barcelona video is clearer and he was just playing the piano, so you may be right: he was not in the mood to play bass. Hope he'll do in Rome.

hope they delve a bit deeper with the setlist by the time they get to Germany, seem to be dropping the songs I most wanna hear. I would have thought they would be adding more deep curts for Europe not dropping em.

I hope they add some of them back for the Italian or UK shows (Pet Sounds, This Whole World, Disney Girls and I Just Wasn't Made For These Times especially), but I don't think we can complain too much at a 45-song set.

Correct, Brian didn´t play bass at all.  Al when introducing ¨Come Go¨talked about its being a doo wop song and how it worked. The crowd ate up all the doo wop covers and originals.  I think they have a fairly good grasp on what works and doesn´t which is unfortunate because I was dying to hear ¨Marcella¨and such.  Oddly enough, Carl was only mentioned once.  It was after ¨Darlin´¨ when Mike said he himself and Brian had written the song and was sung by Carl. I was surprised that before or after ¨GOK¨no one mentioned Carl. Dennis I don´t think was ever mentioned. On the big screen note, correct. There was no video screen at all so no tributes. I guess it is expensive to ship, I´m not sure. Or it could simply be a simple adjustment to the audience. In the USA when I went they had a good mixture of deep cuts and all. This time they stuck to R and B doo wop stuff. I liked the show and was awesome seeing the Spanish audience. A lot of young people in their twenties and lots of pot smoke haha.   Smokin

Jeff sang well but towards the end I think he got tired or something. Normally he sings falsetto the whole time but during GV I don´t think he did and some other times towards the end.  Jeff really seemed worried about Brian a bit. He kept on looking over in his direction while Brian kept his eyes closed and barely moving.
