Brilliant show yesterday night! Quite short because they played for about 80 minutes. Shane didn't forget the lyrics and the band was as great as usual. Shane's new teeths haven't been exposed so I can't say nothing about that. It follows the setlist, but I've to warn you that I haven't written it down during the show. I just removed the songs that haven't been played from the setlist of an american spring show, so my setlist may be not accurate.

Streams of Whiskey
If I Should Fall From Grace With God
Broad Majestic Shannon
Turkish Song of the Damned
Greenland Whale Fisheries
Sayonara
Tuesday Morning
Kitty
Sunny Side of the Street
Body of an American
Thousands Are Sailing
Dirty Old Town
Bottle of Smoke
Sickbed of Cuchullain

Encore:
Sally MacLennane
A Rainy Night In Soho
Fiesta

We had to reduce our show to 80 minutes at the promoter's request, as unfortunately the supporting bill had over-run. It was great to be back in Italy and to meet some old and new friends. Thanks for the welcome back. Viva Verdi!

Summer 2009 - Europe

Hi All!

I was in Milan for the Rick in Idro, so I can tell you something about this european tour.

The location moved from a park to a close area (palasharp) so consider that also today in Milan there are 34 degrees!!!

The festival started with some unknows bands in Italy (subways - all american rejects) but everything changes with the flogging molly (fantastic!), gogol bordello, social distortion and babyshambles.
The bands are not very famous in Italy that's why the festival was not sold out but I guess that the attendance was around 3.5/4 thousands.

The Pogues were the headliner of the festival and they played for an hour and half, the concert was fantastic.

Shane was completely drunk, he took a break every three songs and when he every time he came back with a beer and a cigarette!Sometime he sat on a chair in front of the drum but his voice was very good.
They played several songs as Tuesday Morning, Rainy Night in Soho, Sally, Turkish Song for Damned, Dirty old Town and the end with Fiesta.I don't know why they didn't play the wild rover and fairytale of new york.

Sorry for my poor English!

Il vostro inglese e buono. Come il mio italiano?

I don' think the Wild Rover has been played for a while, shame really. Either way it sounds like a good gig with some really great bands on the list. The Subways are always worth a listen
