CONCERT REPORT: Lille, France, September 25, 2010

Postby sue7 » Sat Sep 25, 2010 5:34 pm

It's time for a Lille concert report. Linda, where are you? I'll have to do my best with just the first couple of pics.
Joey posted this morning that he had taken Sharon Robinson to the airport in Paris and then taken a train back to Lille.

This doesn't sound good. I wonder if Sharon is heading back home. :(

Bands running through That Don’t Make It Junk, audio is dialed in out front. The ushers are arriving and the food venders are icing the beer. It’s almost time for doors.

Another wonderful performance from Leonard and the band.
It seems like a lot of us Brits made the trip over to France - It was worth it.

Just back from Lille. Very intense performance from LC, positively growling out the lines, maybe not as sonorous though as at Marseille. He stopped completely in Hallelujah for quite some time after 1 or 2 verses! Slightly alarming moment but it passed. Webb Sisters were very excellent I thought on their own tonight.

I would not say the audience were loud! Well maybe loud for France yes, but compared to Ireland or Lisbon or Barcelona they were pretty restrained till the encores.

I got a setlist, hooray, never thought I would get one of those :D

http://www.flickr.com/photos/poppypan/5024420412/ - they ended with Hey that's no way to say goodbye, did not sing Heart with no companion

After (during) "Closing Time", Leonard recited a part of the lyrics of "Never Got To Love You" from "Blue Alert" by Anjani...:

They ought to hand the night a ticket
For speeding: it’s a crime
I had so much to tell you
But now it’s closing time


I don't know if he has done this before, haven't read all the other concert reports yet...
I'll upload some pictures later and put the link here.

Maarten (just back home)

EDIT: couldn't resist uploading them right away, so here we go:
