    LEEDS 2013

    Good as that opening was, the Once Upon a Time In The West into Badlands, then No surrender in Madrid 2012 was even better IMO.

    Elton John

    I see the UK arena dates have just been announced. You pay a huge amount next week and the shows are over 2 years later in November 2020!

    Eagles Make SOB look a bargain....

    Maybe but with shows in Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham too there's a choice to be had whereas Glasgow has no tickets currently available. It's interesting too that ticket sales for Glasgow on Viagogo have been brisk for a show that only went onsale last week.

    Still Missing Him

    What an amazing collection An American Treasure is, even if tinged with sadness. Straight Into Darkness, an acoustic I Won't Back Down and a live Southern Accents are just some of so many highlights. My favourite release of the year by some distance.

    The "Eagles" on Tour

    The £600 plus tickets are a very tiny % of the total made available and of course there are £96 tickets for sale at Leeds.

    Still Missing Him

    An American Treasure Deluxe arrived an hour ago. really nice CD sized all bound together book package with great liner notes although the CDs are tight in their sleeves. And the music, so far - fantastic! I still can't believe he's gone though.

    They had a unique style which appealed UK wide (which might have seemed unlikely). Always enjoyable and entertaining. R.I.P. Chas.

    ABBA Gets the Cher Treatment

    I'm not a fan of anyone covering ABBA songs nor of these movies. If I did have to listen to an ABBA cover it would be Erasure's Abba-esque EP, they did the songs pretty well.

    Guide(s): The Best of The River Tour 2016 - 17

    Love all the work you've done on this. I was at both Paris shows and although I was (at the time) desperate for the full album, night 1 was better although the power cut and alarms were a bit scary at the time. Just my view though and thanks again for all your time spent.

    The British are Coming!

    I thought of these two as well but the US charts don't really support the claim. http://www.musicvf.com/

    Show Closers

    He's only closed a show with it once ever. One of the shows we took our daughter to and she said I hope he plays that. I told her that was unlikely as it wasn't being played much. Lo and behold he called the band back on and played it as the last number. Knowing look from daughter! Now you're wondering what the song was, well it was BITUSA and the show was in Spain. List to 2009 http://brucebase.wikidot.com/stats:set-openers-and-closers
  24. Lots of artists all over Europe. What's not to like, see the show and have a little holiday at the same time. I love going to shows in different countries, the audiences are usually better (far less drinking before and during).
