Re: The Tour 2017

Hello MRB, me waiting for St Petersburg gig on Nov the 15th, been promised to get 2 free tickets by the gig promoter in return for my help in promotion which is actually very scarce and ticket sales are pretty poor. Tried to contact promotion authorities for radio or TV interviews or meet & gre...

Re: The Tour 2017

The performance gave me goosebumps several times. I liked the changes and I like the new Album. Julia is a good song, but I liked Money Live better. The time between the launch of his new album and the start of his tour last Saturday is too short for me to 'judge' the new songs, I always need some ...

Re: The Tour 2017

I went to see the gig in Amsterdam and I really liked it. You can argue about his clothing style and his (lack of) contact with the audience (I heard more complaints about the latter in the row to the wardrobe), but hey, this is Chris Rea we are talking about! In the past 3 shows I visited, he never...

Yes, indeed, I found the audience also dull :-) We were swinging on our seats on the balcony row, but our neighbours were not so enthusiastic. :shock:

Yes, now I read Andrey's posting about the vocoals. 8)

Re: A new Tour "last open Road

Was there too, I liked the rock in the whole gig, some less blues. Yes, but I found Josephine very bluezy! This theater was better for his stuff on stage. Paradiso was cool, but to small really. And I did enjoy the visual stuff behind him. True, Carre is built for this kind of concerts, Paradiso is...

Re: A new Tour "last open Road

Hi guys, Thought it would be nice to share you my CR concert review :D I visited the CR show last Monday in Carre Amsterdam. Although the setlist was the same as the previous one(s), I really liked it. Two years ago, in Paradiso Amsterdam, I stood in the front row and could almost touch his guitar w...

Re: A new Tour "last open Road

Thanks to Russian fans who bought the memory stick right after the gig (presale is at the entrance and you get the stick with the 1st part of the recording after the gig along with the code to download the 2nd part), I have already got the first half of the concert recording and will get the second...

I would rather agree, but where did you get the info that there were backing vocals at the gig?
They were present in London, but absent in Montreux and Sochi.

And here's the change of set Chris was telling about to the German magazine/newspaper! :-)

Re: A new Tour "last open Road

You are pointing out an amazing issue - indeed, if the setlist all the same and you only buy recording from one show (in most cases), how can you tell one show from another? Thus is becomes possible to record far less shows than 34 announced ) Sounds foolish but logical )) best regards Andrey There...

Re: A new Tour "last open Road

[quote="MRB"]i´m afraid you are too optimistic, there would have been changes already yesterday if there is gonna be them. but time will tell as they say. OK, let's see then what happens tonight in CZ. But, if the show will be an (exact) copy of the one in AUS yesterday, how do we know tha...

Re: A new Tour "last open Road

Hi guys,

Why should one tell in an interview about X and do Y a few days later? Maybe he IS changing his set list in every country, but we only can tell this after a few gigs. Or am I too optimistic now? 8)

Regards,

Re: A new Tour "last open Road

A 'new' gig, what a sudden & nice surprise! I have immediately bought my tickets for Carre (NL). For those of you who want to be there as well, there are still some seats available!
