Just back from the Royal Albert Hall. It was another long show - 2hrs 20mins full of some rarely played gems. Some highlights:
Paper planes were encouraged - paper had been left on seats for this. The crowd needed little encouragement. Matt Sherrod left stage briefly and returned in a santa costume and proceeded to play guitar! (attempt to at least). He was rolling around all over the stage - completely mad! The band came on for the encores in santa hats.
Neil also commented during the set that one of his wishes was to be able to see themselves play. He then proceeded to invite the roadies onto stage and Neil, Matt, Nick and Mark watched from the audience as the roadies played the first half of it's only natural (very well I might add). The following were played from what I can remember:
Crowded House: Mean To Me, Don't Dream, Something So Strong, Hole In The River
Temple Of Low Men: Into Temptation, In The Lowlands, Better Be Home Soon
Woodface: Chocolate Cake, It's Only Natural, Four Seasons, Italian Plastic
Together Alone: Nails In My Feet, Pineapple Head, Private Universe, Distant Sun
Time On Earth: Don't Stop Now, Say That Again, Pour Le Monde, Transit Lounge (with Beth Rowley), You Are The One To Make Me Cry, A Sigh
Others: Recurring Dream, Message To My Girl
Was surprised that both weather with you and fall at your feet weren't played.
