    Just posted this on the Forum
    A show well worth waiting for.

    Dying Crapshooter Blues (Blind Willie McTell)
    Despite What You've Been Told
    I'm So Depressed (Abner Jay)
    Steady Rollin'
    Hand That Held Me Down
    "Where Sweet Willie"
    Nothing to You (Puked over you)
    New Song
    Las Cruces Jail
    New Song 2
    Broken Eyes (acoustic guitar and Tyson on tambourine. both sang).

    Encore:
    "The Blacker the Berry"
    Long Summer Day
    Seems Like Home to Me

    From what I can recall.

    Adam said they'd play 5 news songs I'd counted to 4 when they'd finished and all ones the I'd heard had been played. So great to find out it wasn't a lie when the encore that we had to clap damn hard for started with an excellent song completely new to me with a lovely more sounding number came on, this might just have been due to the volume of the show though. It was loud. A ton to energy, as you can see for the set list the slow songs are on an hiatus. It all came across to me that they where a bit more confident with the crowd. I remember them seeming quite shy with some of the old shows (Apart from the home town show from what I can tell from the live recordings). So big sing-alongs on all the old favourites and no teasing of the crowd with the long wait for "Goodnight my Andalucia". Adam just kicked right in and they kept the temp going. They've had their rest and now they're back together and you can tell they've missed their pairing as it comes across in such a good way. I would even go as far to say they wrote Broken Eyes as a song about them playing together again. Great way to end close (before the encore of course)

    Fingers crossed they come back again soon (didn't have enough $ to buy a ticket for the second London show but man I wish I did).
