Yes, I'd like to hear Avalanche as well. Also Joan of Arc. I was playing a recording from 1993 recently and I really enjoyed hearing JofA again. Avalanche in Berlin and Joan in Manchester perhaps?

I might have asked for a longer concert to accommodate both these and more but Leonard is giving us a 2.5 hour + concert as it is. How many dates will there have been by Berlin?? I really don't know how he does it but I think it has a lot to do with the fact that he's enjoying himself as much as we are!

I'd love so much to see him do Memories! Also The Window and By The Rivers Dark. And a performance of Master Song would be a treat seeing as it's one of my all time favourites. But I'm happy with anything really, and it was unexpected to see him do The Gypsy's Wife on the tour.

Joan of Arc... Really don't know how this song's been missed with the amazing singers by his side...

I would so much like to hear The Partisan and Hunters Lullaby. Famous Blue Raincoat and The Captain would also be nice. My big problem is though, that there is absolutely nothing, I want to give up from last summer´s programme ;-) 8) Very greedy :oops: indeed - Maybe we just can´t get enough after 15 years of longing :oops: :roll: :razz:

My top three would be "A Bunch of Lonesome Heroes", "The Window" and "Stories of the Street".

All the best, John E

I'm with a lot of UrPal's choice and to manage the disappointment of it not happening I think I will sit this out.
