That's the best thing I have heard so far! :notworthy: :)

I was at the front so I had no security worries.

In the past people complain that its not loud enough or the vocal can't be heard. Well last night no-one could complain.

Another complaint is the set list never contains any surprises. The fact is they now have 25 to 30 songs they can play and the set list will come from that. So although you don't get Far Parade at least it means its not the same 20 songs each time.

So one or two songs went a little wrong. So what? If you go expecting each song to be played perfectly then you're a fool.

People should try enjoying what they see instead of picking faults with everything.

The morning after and I still loved it. :D

Amongst the t-shirts there appears to be a new A4-sized flyer promoting the Reptile House "online".

Perhaps the fact that they had to pay to renew the domain name back in August reminded Von that it exists and could be a nice little earner?

Of course if they do get www.the-reptile-house.com up-and-running with an ecommerce system to sell t-shirts etc then they could even - and I'm just throwing this out there for the lulz (as the kids say these days) - start directly selling little silvery round things with files digitally encoded on them.

Exactly. Still, bloody well excited about that.
Who knows, maybe it'll just be for the long awaited Autobiography....I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

That's a possibility - I can't zoom in enough on the flyer in the photo to read the small print. I'll see if it's displayed again tomorrow evening and get a close look.

Have a quick look at the new online store.

"JESUS LOVES THE SISTERS" is back.

But there don't seem to be any tour specific shirts. Time to stock on the dodgy ones outside?

From Dublin airport (waiting for the next one to arrive):

Very good concert yesterday night!! Very good setlist, the ambient was good, and the sound was clear. The Theatre was a little bit old but it was ok. It was a fantastic night!! One negative thing Von's wearing that terrible t/shirt ;-)
It was nice to meet many heartlanders!!!
See you in London!!
