    All the pre and after show joy and excitement can go in here.

    So - who is going to see David in Cork?

    Just arrived at the hotel, going to have a quick power snooze and then head in to Cork for some sight seeing. Can't wait for tonight's show!!!

    So there I was, having a pre concert sandwich at the Cork Opera House cafe, when a taxi pulls up. I watch a man get out and I think to myself "I know you". 2 Seconds later I realise that it's only bloody DAVID GRAY himself! He passes right by me & enters the building while I just sit there, with an undoubtedly stupid grin & unable to move and/or say anything.
    My "if I ever meet my idol" plan clearly did not take my own stupidity into account...

    Just loving David's picture from Cork. What a beautiful composure. You can see this is someone who has studied painting.

    Not long now. I so wish I was in Cork. Have a great time at the show everyone!

    Thank you so much for posting the setlist so quickly after the show. Aren't these performances amazing?!!!

    First of all let me say Wolfie, it was an absolute pleasure to meet you! So much fun meeting someone genuinely nice that also understands your love of music :)
    The show was amazing! Such raw energy, and I don't think I've ever seem him this fired up & excited before. They were having so much fun on stage, it was an absolute joy to watch.
    I'm useless for setlist details but I'll be posting some pics when I get home (it won't let me do it from my phone).

    Aaaaaaaaaand, YES! I did get to meet David, albeit briefly. Still didn't manage to say anything sensible but I did get a pic! Needless to say I'm still buzzing...

    Currently in the train to Dublin (listening to David of course) to catch my flight home, feeling utterly elated and a little sad all at the same time.

    Wishing everyone going to tonight's show an absolutely amazing time; if it's anything like last night's then you surely won't be disappointed!

    Oh Nat I am so happy for you that you met David and got a pic! To have witnessed such a terrific show and then get that bonus - thrilled for you. Well done! Safe trip home!

    I agree with you about the energy and excitement. So many smiles and so much joy from David last night. It was impressive musically but also it was great fun. Clapping, singing, swaying arms during Sail - so much fun. I loved standing. I loved all the solos David did. I love that they attempted LNR/FSN. Seeing The Light on the set list gives me some glimmer of hope that it will appear somewhere before the end of the tour. I could not have asked for a better show in Ireland. Cork will be hard to top!! Truly magical.

    [.../ edit Rena] As always I'm both a little jealous to read your thoughts on a show and at the same time very grateful. I hope you're right about The Light!
