Great to see Neil at his “home away from home” again.

Neil & Liam performed the first five songs of the night as a duo with ”Back To Life” featuring Pablo Vasquez performing from one of the Olympia’s audience boxes. Most of the rest of the set had the full Finn family performing with occasional help from Jol Mulholland on bass and guitar.

A couple of well timed requests were performed - a fantastic solo piano rendition of “Fall At Your Feet” which was essentially a duet between Neil and the Dublin audience, plus what was initially a tease of “Better Be Home Soon” saw Neil decide they’d better play the whole song - and they did.

Plenty of good humored banter throughout and solid support from Pablo Vasquez and Pugwash’s Thomas Walsh.

The Ligature, thanks for the Pugwash reference!  Looked up that band and listened to some of the material a little bit ago based on your post and can't believe I'd never heard of it.  Perhaps Mr. Walsh can be considered for a future Seven Worlds Collide project!

Hi Romer,
Thomas has long had an appreciation of Neil's music - during his support set he spoke about attending the first Crowded House show in Ireland during the Woodface tour, which coincidentally was also at the Olympia Theatre. I've spotted him in the audience at other Neil/CH shows in Dublin.
If you liked the Pugwash material Thomas also had a cricket-themed side project with Neil Hannon - The Duckworth Lewis Method.
There's a thread here in the Forums which details the involvement of Nick Seymour and a Neil Finn cameo on the second Duckworth Lewis Method album "Sticky Wickets" six years ago:
