I wrote it in Zagreb and Salzburg threads, most of chatter is the same, but the kid is gone since more than a year (as he's on tour since 2008), blessing is now gone, and Tower of Song the ordinary song, without the talk in the end. "World plunged in darkness and chaos" is there before Anthem.

For detailed report, you'd simply have to read both threads and find my post from Wednesday.

From these there was only that "don't catch a summer cold" in Salzburg (and even that was omitted in Zagreb and Graz) - and it was already too late for me :( I blame the air-condition on the train and I hope I'll be better in a few days and recover fully for the Krakow event :)
Not in between talk but I noticed that "the judgements are severe" was replaced with "critics are severe" in Waiting For The Miracle. I thing there were other differences like this but I can't recall more at the moment.
One more small difference: in the Partisan there is the "I've many friends and some of them are with me" part. He changed that for the French version in Zagreb and Salzburg (no reaction at all) but used the English version in Graz so I waited for the cries.... but they didn't come.
Eva
Oh, and one more interesting detail: the audience reacted with an ovation in Salzburg for the "There's a concert hall in Vienna" part like everywhere when there are local references, but absolutely nothing in Graz.

I have a feeling that Juraj's brilliant audio recording of Salzburg is going to be the definitive recording for this tour...

Thanks for the pictures Susy! :D

You are so lucky - you were there for a world premiere of a Leonard Cohen song - and a very beautiful one!
