Hello! Can only come on briefly here as despite being home I've got lots going on this weekend (which is why I had to come back rather than stay in Dublin last night
Show was FANTASTIC - great atmosphere, loads of banter and crowd interaction. I was further back so didn't get decent photos/film but I assure you there are some great shots coming your way from the others
Set list as far as I can remember (but I may have the order wrong so someone may have to correct me)
Too Many Dicks
New song (Woo a Lady?)
Think About It
Iâ€™m Not Crying
Bowieâ€™s In Space
If Youâ€™re Into It
Bus Driver Song
Encore: Hiphopapotamus vs the Rhymenoceros
Among the many, many high points: the new song about wooing a lady is hystericalâ€¦. there was a singalong of â€œWaltzing Matidaâ€ (in response to a dig about Oscar Wilde earlier in the show)... â€œDicksâ€ was the opener, featuring Bretâ€™s dancingâ€¦ Jemaineâ€™s, very, ahem... enthusiastic, performance at the crucial moment of Business Timeâ€¦ and Nigel's cello harmonics were great on â€œIâ€™m Not Cryingâ€. The costume change was priceless. Nigel got a great reception, as ever, and deservedly so. Some great segments where they regaled us with their badass antics on tour. Man, those guys know how to rock 'n' roll.
I did think that Jemaine seemed to be â€œleadingâ€ things â€“hadnâ€™t noticed that before, and am not sure how much they vary that between performances.
No M&G either, but we saw Jemaine as he was going in the stage door before the show. He was a real gentleman â€“ posed agreeably for photos, despite obviously wanting/needing to get going, and did the Crazy Horses thing with kipples . I didn't want to ask for a photo as he did seem to be in a hurry, but he was kind enough to sign my FTW cover
And I met some lovely WTF ladies! Canâ€™t wait to see their photos.
I'm so glad that everyone made it to Dublin in the end. Guys... on behalf of the Fair City, thank you for a great show
