Michael is brilliant too.


Michael is great, isn't it ... I love the way it's been 'no.1-in-heaven-ified' in the first part of the song, before converting back to its more traditional sound ...

Hope (anyhow) they will play a bit longer next week in Amsterdam, this was just about 75 minutes (OK, longer than the Beatles ever did but last Paul McCartney's concert lasted for 3 hours) but this might have something to do with the ARTE broadcast/recording (I guess/hope).


Maybe they only had time to learn 18 songs so far?!?

It would be great if they could bring in things like King Of The Song, Look At Me and vary some of the FF and Sparks back catalogue selections in the future ...

I think it's wise to keep the old repertoire to a minimum as they're trying to establish a new band/sound.

They have been playing 18 songs from what I can gather.I would pay the ticket price if they just played the new album.The extra 3 Sparks and 3 FF tracks are a bonus for me.Two bands for the price of one.Boom boom

Freddie Dreamer is a nice old guy, sometimes he get`s a
bit confused with details, the way he talks is not very clear etc. but the way he`s built up this show is something special...
and after all he is very impressed by the album

I just watched the Paris show for the first time since the days immediately following the show. Has this been edited? I don't remember all the really close-up shots or the light tracer effects.

Thoughts?
