It looks like all Irish airports are open and operating normally again. Which is good for funny s, baker, AND of course B & J who have to be in Manchester tomorrow.

Irish authorities reopened all airports Friday after shutting them for several hours because of ash from an Icelandic volcano.

The airports in Dublin, Shannon, Cork and six other cities were open with no further plans to close them, the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) said.

I was at the gig last night - it was great!! Today I decided to walk around Dublin and ended up at the museum - who did I meet going in - Jemaine with David O'D!!!!! J was very nice. They mustn't have stayed long because 5 mins later I saw them both again cycling up the road on the free bikes you can supposedly use in Dublin!

Cool story, crazydog!

They guys seem to enjoy sightseeing when they have spare moments, don't they?

Kipples, so glad that you met Jemaine! Will try to remember to come back tomorrow and check out your pictures and vids.

Have we got a set list for this gig yet? I like to think I can be patient but I'm really not. :rock:

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 :roll: )

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 :supz:

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
Beautiful Girl
Hurt Feelings
New song (Woo a Lady?)
Demon Woman
Jenny
Think About It
I’m Not Crying
Bowie’s In Space
Epileptic Dogs
Mutha*uckas
If You’re Into It
Bus Driver Song
Albi
Business Time
Encore: Hiphopapotamus vs the Rhymenoceros

Among the many, many high points: the new song about wooing a lady is hysterical…. there was a singalong of “Waltzing Matida” (in response to a dig about Oscar Wilde earlier in the show)... “Dicks” was the opener, featuring Bret’s dancing… Jemaine’s, very, ahem... enthusiastic, performance at the crucial moment of Business Time… and Nigel's cello harmonics were great on “I’m Not Crying”. 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 “leading” things –hadn’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 – 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 :thumb:

And I met some lovely WTF ladies! Can’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 :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Actually there is a picture of Jemaine & Trefusis and it's probably one of my favourites! :lol:
On the bus home now. ETA of pictures is about 4pm local time. :D

:lol: Oh, yes! You can tell that we both soo much wanted to be in that picture...

Safe home, kipples. I just got my photos out and every single one is blurry , so probably best to hold out for the good stuff. :roll:

I'm posting the pics on my facebook now.

When I post them on the forum will I just post them here or is there a separate thread?
