I spoke with Marianne before the concert, couldn't help myself, she was sitting a few seats away.
Wonderful woman, aged to perfection, like good wine...

I watched her several times during the concert, it was moving to see how they connected deeply, it was like the concert was a private conversation between just the two of them.
After the concert she quickly run backstage, to meet with her friend.

That was the first song of the encores, and the crowd went wild and stormed the front when that song came.
Was a bit chaos, that might be the reason.

it was beautiful, though. Trust me.

Anny - so glad you asked - I had meant to keep watching for such a video - :D I'm updating the list below - Leisha Camden recently uploaded more video - and that includes "So Long Marianne." It truly is wonderful. Seems like there is a great feeling in the hall - the audience that night. :D

Two very nice videos- uploaded by Geoffrey Wren -
Included - some closeups and good capture/great views of the massive audience - and some gusty "shoutouts." I'd love to know what they are saying. :lol:
Also - his "part 2" video captures "So Long Marianne" (Marianne was in the audience )
