My favourites are sticking! Whoop whoop! Was the intro music still there, though, Hotblack?

Can we please try and keep spoilers hidden?

It doesn't bother me but some people prefer to be suprised.

They played that song with Richard Hawley when we saw them in April. It was cool! Don't reckon they'll do GUP and ODLT this at the same gig too often though... hope not anyway, it's a bit of an overload.

Well, Jonny is only speculating, so that's OK.

I think I might give up anyway, and take the word HIDDEN out of the thread title.

They played Forget Myself, GUP and ODLT at Leeds! ... It was overload on the crowd roaring for me. But it was still awesome.

Here is a link of a review from the cambridge gig

http://www.bbc.co.uk/6music/news/20081007_elbow_review.shtml

not sure how to post links ; put that down to a general lack of interest in posting links or stupidity.

Just got in from the Truro gig.
Spectacular.

Only downside was not being allowed the setlist at the sound-desk because 'it had notes on it' (and is therefore unfit for my eyes, somehow?)

Set was immaculate - so glad they played Red. Started with Starlings, ended with Scattered.
Incredible stuff. Fingers crossed they're at Eden next year.

I like this bit

Elbow manage to command the audience's attention; no one talked during even the most tender moments of a song - and why would you when you might miss some of Garvey's beautifully crafted lyrics?

That's definitely how it was on Tuesday night as well. Smile

It was certainly being played on the spring tour. At least it was played at Oxford IIRC

Not every night - it wasn't played at the Manchester gig, or the Festival Hall, but that was a different gig all together

Forget Myself was played at Birmingham too. I'd be well happy with it in the setlist, but agree with either one or the other of ODLT/GUP.

Here's an, um, "interesting" review of the Cambridge gig. No-one here is like that, surely? Wink At least no spoilers, and glad to know she was converted.

The exictement is mounting - still a while to go till LIverpool, though...

...well, sad to say, thats not a million miles away from me I'm afraid, although thankfully that's only one side of me. There's far more to me than that.
