Page 56 of Book of Longing has the verses used in the recitation, page 57 the verses used in the song.

Stavros,

Looks like your dream setlist will come through, because the list doesn't seem to change a lot down there. You can take a look here:

He sang Sisters of Mercy at the Melbourne concert on Thursday night, but I can't remember where exactly in the program or what song it replaced. Would have liked Closing Time to be included. Am going again on Tuesday, so will take more notice.

A minor correction to Andrew's posting of the setlist to the Feb 3 (Brisbane) show ... (and hi Andrew BTW, it was great to meet you on the night!)

The second set didn't include Democracy -- that came in the encore. So the actual playing order was:

Set 1
1. Dance Me to the End of Love
2. The Future
3. Ain't No Cure for Love
4. Bird on the Wire
5. Everybody Knows
6. In My Secret Life
7. Who By Fire
8. Chelsea Hotel #2
9. Hey That's No Way To Say Goodbye
10. Sisters Of Mercy
11. Anthem

Set 2
12. Tower of Song
13. Suzanne
14. The Gypsy's Wife
15. The Partisan
16. Boogie Street
17. Hallelujah
18. I'm Your Man
19. A Thousand Kisses Deep [recitation]
20. Take This Waltz

Encore 1
21. So Long Marianne
22. First We Take Manhattan

Encore 2
23. Famous Blue Raincoat
24. If It Be Your Will
25. Democracy

Encore 3
26. I Tried to Leave You
27. Whither Thou Goest

Thanks Dean - I was literally "working in the dark" when I did that setlist, using an old setlist for convenience! ;-)

It was also great to meet you - I love your enthusiasm, Dean: you're a legend in your own right! 8)

Cheers,
Andrew :)

I think Artur's setlist is incomplete... It's missing songs like "Hey, that's...", "The Partisan", "Whither thou goest", "So Long Marianne" etc...
I can't believe he left all of those out.

Can anyone else post the setlist please?

Although I wasn't there, by the look of what Arthur has posted I would assume that the Perth setlist was the same as Melbourne (5 Feb).
Melbourne 6 & 7 Mar 1980, Melbourne 25 May 1985, Wellington 20 Jan 2009, Auckland 22 Jan 2009, Melbourne 5 Feb 2009, Wellington 31 Oct 2010, Christchurch 3 Nov 2010, Christchurch 14 Dec 2013
