All movement has stopped in the venue as both house and local crew relish the rare opportunity to hear the band work out a brand new number.

I wonder what the brand new number is? Perhaps another rehearsal of "My Oh My?"

Just a few moments more and the curtains will come down, local crew will flood the stage and we’ll whisk away LC and the band to the hotel.
But until then, even the crew who have seen 200+ shows stop and give an ear when we get to If It Be Your Will.

Leonard cited a few verses right before "Born in Chains" (I think).

I think it was about kissing.

Anyone knows what that was? I don't think it was in the lyrics.

This is just superb! One of my top favourites. I have not heard it live yet. Maybe I'll get lucky at one of the concerts in the final leg.

Thank you for posting it.

It's funny you should say that. Avalanche is also one of my all time favs. I know he has not played it very often this tour, I believe somewhere around 13 times in 200+ concerts. So the Avalanche/total concerts ratio is way off balance haha. Nevertheless, I was VERY fortunate to have seen him play it three times this tour; twice in Brussels and yesterday in Dortmund!!

For you, I sincerely hope LC plays in the concert(s) you'll be attending, for it is truly a magic moment when LC stands there all alone in that eerie lighting and plays this dark and sinister song.

Wow, a first-row seat was a magical way to experience what will probably be my last concert of the year. Loved every minute of it. So great to hear Avalanche - right before my eyes! Even though Leonard fluffed his lines a few times, his performance was awesome as usual.
