    Thanks for the setlist, Wolfie ! Great that Dun Laoghaire was played -:)
    David Kitt was impressed by the audience:

    Yes, nevermind, I was pleasantly surprised to get Dun Laoghaire last night. Little touch of the Sounding Out tour. Interesting that David Kitt thought it was the best audience. There were a lot people shouting out for songs, asking questions, etc. all throughout the night and that was actually a bit tiresome. Of course, after New York anything would seem much better. So, so fortunate to get Ain't No Love. Last night's Sail Away and Nemesis were probably my favorite versions of the tour. David really loaded up the set list so not much time for an encore - just Nemesis. However, as I said, it was a terrific version of it so a nice way to end. All of the new stuff of course was fantastic. Because I am loving it so much I wouldn't mind a night of just the new stuff, no classics or anything. I just keep thinking about what special material David has in this new album and how I can't wait for the whole world to hear it!

    Watching those videos reminds of something I've been remiss to comment on and that is the production quality of this tour. Everything from the sound to the lights to the visual stuff has been so well done. Really, really impressive and a testament to the hard work of the people behind the scenes who make it all come together each night.

    Agreed, especially on the lighting. As much as I missed Tom, I made it a point to speak to both of the fellows on the lighting console to tell them how much I enjoyed the lighting show.

    So late to the draw here, but yeah... what Wolfie said! :) I, too, noticed improvement with the lighting and general production from the DTL tours. This, though a "warm-up," had a very finished quality to it.

    Regarding the audience, I would say that they were generally polite, save a few overenthusiastic nut jobs shouting unnecessary compliments and requests. DG seemed to take it in stride though, recognizing it for what it was: enthusiasm. He did, in his own way, let them know that they were not as funny/cute as they thought. Eventually, the audience turned on each other just enough to keep the hoodlums in check. Too many goons taking flash pictures too. :( But otherwise, very into the music and mostly polite during the parts that mattered.

    It really got me pumped for the album. I can't wait to dig in a dissect some new lyrics!
