  1. Love both songs too and like you I was at the Paris show. Just a correction though, the full River album was also played in Gothenburg and Oslo. Paris was indoors of course.
  2. Very true, must admit, I did a little jog on the spot myself.
  3. Best opening to a show I've been at was this one.
  4. Paris 2016 shows coming soon?

  6. I'm amused by Amanda Shires comment in the "thanks" part of the album sleeve notes, where she thanks Jason Isbell adding in brackets "mine btw".
  7. In Scotland there's many factors at play. Main losses for the SNP were in fishing/farming areas where Brexit was popular and it remains to be seen if their optimism on that will be borne out. I doubt it. There was also a coalescing of the unionist vote against the SNP with much tactical voting which of course in a FPTP system is very effective. Some SNP voters weren't enthused by the campaign and didn't turn out, some were enthused by the Corbyn factor although Labour's vote share hardly increased overall.
  8. I've never had a problem understanding geordie accents. There's a reason too, why it's regularly voted the most popular in surveys, it sounds great.

  10. Me too, been a member for more years than I care to remember. Only used them once for a foreign trip but (at a price) they take the strain out of arranging tickets/hotels. They'll get some tickets for these shows but not many I'd imagine.
  11. Brexit talks start on Monday and we have no idea what we're doing http://www.politics.co.uk/blogs/2017/06/15/brexit-talks-start-on-monday-and-we-have-no-idea-what-we-re
  12. Tom Peck is a journalist with the Independent.
  13. Don't really know. The Academy holds more. Jason's show isn't the only act that's been moved, maybe the O2ABC is being renovated or something. The Doobie Brothers are also scheduled for the Academy. I'm well pissed off because I'd have gone to see them again. They were great in Dublin in 2010.
  14. Yep. Presumably we get message from TM soon. A refund will be an option, one I'll probably take. I vowed never to return to the Academy after my last visit there.
