13 songs altogether: 2 From Procol Harum 1 from Shine on Brightly

  From Grand Hotel 1 From Exotic Birds and Fruit   from Procol's Ninth
  From Something Magic   From The Prodigal Stranger 2 from The Well's on Fire
2 non-album tracks 1 Brooker solo item

The setlist specified New Lamps for Old after Whisky Train; Nothing But the Truth was scheduled after AWSoP, and Simple Sister didn't feature

Very good crowd in a nice venue: very appreciative and supportive. First band was Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy band ... loud, prodigiously accomplished, personable ... and gruellingly monotonous.

All Procols in good form, GB especially so: some terrific singing, and a baffling exposition of the position of sunset on 34th Street in Manhattanhenge, and how Stonehenge, in England, was built by Queen Elizabeth.
