Dublin - 2nd Nov 1991- Olympia Theatre

Sean O'Brien ·
Long shot here....but this was the best show of any artist I have have ever been to, and I'm trying to gather some info on it. For instance, does anyone have: 1. Setlist from that show 2. Photos from that show I think "Left Hand" from that Olympia gig ended up on the "Ghost Cars" fanclub cd.....so the show was recorded. Does anyone know of any other recordings from that night out there? Any help would be really appreciated. Thank you!

Nick Seymour on stage in Dublin

Midnight Oil performed the second show of their European tour last night, 11th June, at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin, a mere 25 years after their only other performances in Ireland! Irish singer/songwriter Declan O’Rourke opened the show and for the final song of his well received set he had two guest musicians - Midnight Oil’s Jim Moginie on guitar/vocals and Nick Seymour on bass/vocals. Crowded House will be represented again in Dublin tomorrow when Neil performs with Fleetwood Mac at the...

https://www.irishtimes.com/culture/music/fleetwood-mac-in-dublin-we-re-a-bunch-of-crazy-people-with-a-crazy-history-1.3925169?mode=amp An Evening with Fleetwood Mac is a brave title for a tour, given that some members of the Fleetwood Mac family can’t even stand to be in the same room as the others. But for this tour and this their 60th gig of their tour, an evening with Fleetwood Mac is an evening with Stevie Nicks , Christine McVie, Mick Fleetwood , John McVie, Tom Petty guitarist Mike...

HotPress.com Fleetwood Mac roll back the years with RDS stunner Despite the Lindsey Buckingham-shaped hole on stage, the band were in serious crowd-pleasing mood, says Stuart Clark When they last played Dublin in 2015, it was obvious from the body language and the yawning space between them on stage that all was not well between Lindsey Buckingham and the rest of Fleetwood Mac. Even so, it was still one hell of a shock when his services were dispensed with before this latest lap of the...

From notes I scribbled on the night: Mean To Me There Goes God Tall Trees Into Temptation Weather With You Chocolate Cake Left Hand Hole In The River Don't Dream It's Over Fall At Your Feet ?? Fame Is Something So Strong When You Come -------- Kill Eye Italian Plastic Sister Madly ------- World Where You Live ?? Better Be Home Soon The first unknown song was noted as "Sweet.." Jimi Hendrix? So it either had "Sweet" prominent in the lyrics, sounded like Hendrix, or at a big stretch they...

According to my notes it was actually Love You Til The Day I Die that ended up on the Ghost Cars live fanclub compilation, and the only track I know of from this show that is even remotely available. Left Hand from Ghost Cars was apparently recorded at the Edinburgh Playhouse in Scotland on 19th June 1992, along with Better Be Home Soon and 20th Century Boy . I do stand to be corrected however, since there's always the possibility the linear notes on the fanclub release were mislabelled.

No, Sean was correct. On the Ghost Cars fan club disc "Left Hand" was recorded at the Olympia in Dublin. It's the sole performance to be released from the show, which is a pity because it was one of the best shows I've ever seen them do - and more than a little frustrating to know the entire show in on a DAT tape somewhere. However the majority of their return to Dublin nine months later at the National Stadium was released on the "Foreplay" fan club disc. Only two Ghost Cars tracks...

Thanks for the clarification @The Ligature , it was definitely my error. It looks like when I initially ripped the CD all those years ago I must have split Track 7 (Tail of a Comet) into two separate files, deciding that the song/jam that follows Tail was a cover of 20th Century Boy. This in turn threw my tracklisting out by one, which made me assume Love You 'til the Day I Die was played at the Olympic Theatre, being Track 9, not Left Hand , which was the official Track 9. I've since fixed...

To my ears it's purely a freeform jam that developed at the end of "Tail Of A Comet" which they were occasionally performing/road testing during the Woodface tour where the guitar riff at the end probably suggested the T-Rex song so Neil stuck a spontaneous vocal ad lib onto - it's literally the final seconds of the song, but it IS reminiscent of the T-Rex song. There's a few examples where the same thing has occurred with Beatles songs/lyrics because the song endings aren't yet etched in...

Nick received a nice acknowledgement from Neil last night during the Fleetwood Mac show in Dublin. He was at the show and Neil thanked him for helping him record “Don’t Dream It’s Over” before he performed it to it’s largest ever audience in Ireland.
