  1. They had bad internet access out there last night so I wonder if it's even worse tonight?
  2. Woot, glad to see there may be some record of such a great night, appreciate the advice.
  3. I was at Melb 2 in the pit near the front. I don't think he was drunk or the performance was affected. It was Bruce in story telling mode. And the crowd loved it because you knew you were getting something special. He told the story beautifully. We laughed a lot with him, particularly around the section when he was telling young people that TV used to stop in the middle of the night. Keep in mind the whole night was a darker, more serious performance than Melb 1. The stories matched the story telling in the choice of songs for the night. He was more reflective and often seemed deep in the moment of a particular song. You got the sense there was something up which was driving the performance. So yeah, we wondered if it was to do with Jake and his Dad or making him think about Clarence more or just something going on in his life. None of it took away from the performance. It added. And it made the whole show more personal to watch and be a part of that night. After all, it's Bruce. We don't pay for the same scripted show night after night. We pay for whatever the hell he decides to share with us. And at Melb 2 he shared a lot. On a funny note though. I was at Sydney 2003 which is about the only boot that was never released either. I'm beginning to think it's me!! ;-)
