I talked to a person who works at the hotel in which Chris and his band stayed at. This person also attended the gig and shot many photos and videos but of a very poor quality.
As I understood, Chris's performance lasted ca. 1.5 hrs, so it was almost the same as Montreux gig and the setlist also seems to be the same. And the band was the same - Neil, Sylvin, Anto and Kirt.
Chris was ordinnary himself and seemed not to care much of his image as usual - unshaved, wearing an old simple T-shirt, etc., he looked healthy and is told to have been dancing on stage. He was very warmly welcomed by the audience of about 1000 people.
The person who told me this also had a short chat with Sylvin, who was also very cheerful and is told to be drinking and laughing out loud a lot at the hotel's bar after the show.
There were cameramen at the show to project the image onto the big screens by the stage, so there is a change that there was a recording of the show; the person who I talked to has asked the organizers if the shooting was recorded.
Hope to bring more news soon,
