ah Roman,
I was thinking it was that song which I remember very well ... but LC singing it now .... if it is the same one ...... must be a good reason for it which we will no doubt find out soon enough :razz:

You know, just thinking about this set list .... how exciting it would have been to be there on the first night not knowing what song was coming next!
A special treat for those who were fortunate enough to be there!!

EDIT: Thank you cohenadmirer - I can hardly wait for your welcomed videos :D

I'm completely blown away by this setlist.
It's 2am on a school night, so I'll read the mass of reports in the morning. But even now, it's already clear it was a stellar night.

Gnight!

This concert was absolutely amazing. The setlist was great (Some nice surprises (I never would have believed that Leonard would play "I can't forget") and all the Old Ideas songs sounded fantastic). Especially the ending was very exciting because I was convinced that after "I tried to Leave you" it would be over, but no, 3 more songs. Wow! Fantastic. Only thing missing was Whither Thou Goest as closer. :)

Leonard and the band were in great shape as usual.

The only thing I did not like, was the way Democracy sounded (I don't know how you call what Leonard played during the song, but in my opinion it did not fit the mood of the song and ruined it a bit by sounding too much like happy circus music. Also, he should have sung the chorus together with the Webb Sisters).

Look forward for the upcoming shows, you will not be disappointed! :D

PS: I had two dutch women sitting behind me who were smoking, talking and singing all the time with their horrible smoky voices. They just wouldn't stop and when I asked them to be quiet, they just kept going, ruining me the entire "Everybody knows" song by singing it so loud, I couldn't concentrate on Leonard anymore. I left during that song (They had already ruined me the opener, Bird on a wire and The Future) and went to some empty seats at the back, although I had payed 99 Euro for the Golden Circle seats. This makes me very angry. After the pause, a couple that was sitting right next to me joined me on the empty seats in the back, telling me that the two women just kept going, ruining them the entire first half. It's unbelievable that such people attend Leonard's concerts and seem to enjoy ruining other people the show. I doubt that these two women are members of the forum, but if they are and read this I just want to tell them what I wasn't able to at the concerts, because I did not want to make a scene, risking to disturb other people: F*ck off (Excuse my language).

And now, let's celebrate the first concert of the tour by many happy reports. :D

Thank you everyone for all your reports, photos and any videos coming up. I am looking forward to it all.
All day long I kept checking back and catching more almost live. Amazing this new technology isn't it?
Leonard seemed in top form and even better than ever. Oh 4 hours long..that is amazing.
and the set list is also bringing forth amazing songs. I don't know how I am going to wait until the fall
to see the concert live so for now depending on all of your posts.
Thank you Leonard for touring again! Have fun everybody...
