Re: Tour Reports 2010

Re: Songs about cars and racing?

What else is there? A thread about Chris and racing, I couldn't resist! "Red" from the Auberge album I think is about the red cars and "Never Been Anyone Quite Like You" from "The Blue Cafe" is about a racing driver but I'm not sure if it is Schumacher or Senna. No doubt there are many more as well...

Re: Updated site to phpBB 3.0.7

Actually, got one problem here. When I enter to your frontpage it gives me this kind of note on white background: Language file ./community/language//common.php couldn't be opened. And then when I refresh page the site will open normally. Wonder what makes it work like this, has anyone else this pr...

Re: Tour Reports 2010

The ticket price! :evil: Chris Rea, even now, some will scream, now commercially plays in the second division. That's hard, but true! 58 euros for a place in the last third of the hall is simply not justified. For 70 euros you can see Springsteen (3 hour concerts, changing setlists every gig) at th...

Re: Tour Reports 2010

Hi Zeljko, I have to agree with Jim, I'm sure nationality doesn't come in to it. They probably have a policy of not accepting anything like that from fans anywhere. I can understand it, they would have to carry your painting around for the rest of the tour and if they accept lots of gifts they would...

Not a cursing word but disrespectful to religious people (which I am not particularly) when used in this context.

Re: Chris Rea "B Sides and Singles" recordings

Does anyone know anything about the tune played on Dancing Down The Stony Road DVD, when Gerry O'Connor plays banjo and Sylvin comes in dancing (and eventualy informing the guys that the dinner is ready) ? I could be wrong, (it happened once before :-) ) Isnt it from Blue Street (5 guitars)? Regard...

It's very close to what I've read about Chris' stay in Budapest. The promoter said CR asked for nothing in his changing room. :)
:-) I can't really imagine him being a Maria Carey when it comes to touring! Fruit and chocolate, great!!

Re: Videos

The style played on live hints back to earlier era of Chris Rea. Meaning it sounds more like the other hits played during the tour. Once again clue about throwing the blues era away, and going back closer to mainstream, which is doggone shame.... Hi Mr Blues, I know what you mean about the style, t...

Re: Videos

THanks Lily I agree I like Electric Guitar on Blue Guitars better ! This is nice but I don't think it translates live as well as most (which are better live). Jim Hi Jim, Yes I agree totally, usually the live versions are so much better than the studio ones but maybe you have to be there to appreci...
