I have mixed feelings about audience cameras and videos, especially close to, if it becomes intrusive, or annoyingly in the way for people there, but as I've already had my turn this tour Crying or Very sad , have followed the dates since by checking in on youtube. Especially the 'Weather to Fly' ones Smile and favouriting my favourites.

I like

Rum and Dwarfs at Leicester

that I found today

There's the back end of a yarn during the 'huddle' and the song itself from Manchester's here as well.

Well, I've been refusing to watch any of the live 'Weather to Fly' videos as I still want it to be a surprise!
Can't wait till tomorrow!!!

Just back from 3 glorious Elbow concerts and oh boy, was this worth waiting for!
Absolutely mind blowing! This is now my fave part of the gig and I hope they NEVER drop it.
Sigh...

Well, as I've said before, I'd deliberately avoided watching Weather to Fly clips on You Tube because I wanted to be surprised.
I knew though that there was some sort of 'huddle' beforehand, so when I saw that I kinda knew what was coming and my heart just skipped a beat.
They do one verse 'acoustically' if you like and then the huddle breaks up. I thought that was it and I'm not ashamed to say that a small tear was shed by this sad (as in pathetic) person...
However, (and this is where I'm glad I kept the surprise element) Guy then starts singing: "Are we having the time of our lives?" and they lash into a full electric version. It's astonishing!!!
I really have no other word for it. I could have died a very, very happy woman there and then!

I was expecting the small huddle version to be as well, and was rather disappointed. So I had the same rush of excitement as you, Jones, when the blasted into it. Very Happy

Oh, oh, oh... Isn't it something else?
Hard to believe it took them so long before they felt it was finally right to do live.
It is absolutely flawless...

The difficulty of choosing a set list to suit everybody, is the sign of a plethora of quality material.

A plethora, El Guapo?
(Sorry, couldn't resist!)

I agree that there is just sooo much to choose from, but surely 'Weather to Fly' has become a favourite part of the show?

Well, I vote for it to stay but you just don't know do you?
I mean, Fugitive Motel? Where did that go? scratch

Fugitive Motel was nearly always played on tour since 2003, so with more of TSSK and LOTFW being played there wasn't enough room.
This tour has been TSSK and about the most successful singles/hits.

When the next album is released and toured in the future, I like to think that the songs that were played live for a while but not nearly as much as Fugitive Motel, Red and Switching off have been, got a turn. Hoping that some other songs from COTH come back in favour.

Back to 'Weather to Fly'....I love the depth and substance of it. Don't get tired of it like I do with 'One Day Like This'
I thought when the streamers came down at Cambridge the first time it was played was magical :-)
So as it wasn't in the April tour of TSSK...do hope it stays for a while.

i think that they should weave back in some COT. where did grace under pressure go!! and they NEVER play fallen angel...

i think though if any of the mentioned songs come back, weather to fly would definitely stay, especially because its a crowd favourite... and Mr potter himself might see this humble little thread...

I love Fallen Angel! (It's my ringtone! Razz ) and I would love for it to come back.
But not at the expense of 'Weather'...
