Was this an early start for a gig or has someone seen a copy of the setlist and updated setlist.fm before the gig ends?

(Third last song in the set seems to be the only change from the previous gig... with possibly the only less popular regular played song than Ocean Spray coming in...)

That looks like someone's assumed the set. Number 12 is down as unknown as it's probably James on his own

I hope SoS hasn't been completely dropped from the tour.

WELL that was incredible. AGAIN. Amazingly I got to the barrier - I think that’s the first time for me since 1997!

They were just in fantastic spirits. I was right in front of Nicky and he was so smiley. It was particularly lovely to see him smiling through Complicated Illusions, knowing how personal that song is for him.

We got Tristesse acoustic, it was a choice between that, Stay Beautiful and FDTW but Tristesse got the loudest cheer.

Before Sweet Child James did a sort of medley of classic guitar riffs, one was Rebel Rebel and I almost wished they’d play that instead!

Regarding the setlist, there was a guy in front of the barrier before the band came on, venue staff presumably, and I saw him take a surreptitious pic of the setlist before the gig started. I guess he must have put it up on setlist.fm then.

No Spectators - fingers crossed for Wembley as I really want to hear that!

Glad you enjoyed it and yay on getting the barrier ! Looks like the setlist won't change much next couple of dates. They usually do something extra for London ...maybe we'll get another duet. Is mark lanegan in town does anyone know ?

Oh - and there were no projections behind them this time, I guess that’s a venue limitation? I did miss those a bit.

A few pics upon the book of twit: https://twitter.com/scruffystorms/st...88286986702852

Fab to hear Enola Alone. Autocorrect tried to change that into Ebola Alone, which would be a very different kind of song.

And god Sapporo was magnificent!

Thank you! Yay indeed! Yes I’m wondering what will happen in London as there’s no supports announced yet, think they may have something special lined up! Exciting times

Disappointed we didn’t get Spectators or the cover of Dancing Horses I was hoping for - but after lockdown just seeing the guys again and the usual run of hits was more than enough.

Just coming out of recovery from an operation, so had to hang back a little from the front this time round - venue was nice and full, but thought the crowd were somewhat static, sadly. Went along to see Sea Girls the following night and the whole place was bouncing.

Great blog love the pics. I've loved this tour. Setlist may look boring to some on paper but it's so much fun when you're there and they had so much energy and chatter and smiles and

Thank you I agree completely, it's been a wonderful tour and I only wish I'd been to more shows. Can't believe the main tour is over already!
