Thanks for the setlist-scan, Hermann
Bringing Home the Bacon
The VIP Room
Shine on Brightly (Gary starts slightly differently, whole intro falls apart. Everybody stops; Gary claims 'How long have been playing and we don't even rehearse it. I know what the problem is we had wild boar for dinner.' Everyone laughs, and they start again)
Pandora's Box (the ending instrumental section becomes a Latin-style Sergio Mendez Brazil 66)
Learn to Fly (very up-tempo)
Magdalene (My Regal Zonophone) (not on official setlist: beautiful)
An Old English Dream ('We are good at games you can play with one hand, like darts, and drink with the other hand'. Nice new drum pattern in closing section)
Simple Sister (Dunn alters the drums again, and it is his song now, with some BJ flourishes. Very different from Mark Brzezicki)


One Eye on the Future (One-Eye name-checked for helping sell merchandise)
A Rum Tale
Grand Hotel (extended applause, and then band intros)
Hang on Rose
Missing Persons (wildly extended applause)
The Devil Came from Kansas (an astounding re emergence - fantastic)
A Salty Dog ('For all our friends who watch us from above'; new intro with seagulls and whale sounds. 'We would like to play this for all the humpback whales because we don't like the [***] who are going out to catch them'!).


The Miller's Tale (Glissando, very powerful finish)


Skip softly (My Moonbeams
) (with Also Sprach Zarathustra) instrumental only

Pandora's Box instrumental only

Typewriter Torment

(You Can't) Turn Back the Page

The Devil Came from Kansas

Dancing Underneath the Moon

Bringing Home the Bacon (part)

Gary tinkling with parts of Within our House

All trying to get the sound to project a humpback whale


(thanks, Monocular One)

The scanned setlist, as used on stage by the band, shows certain songs that were not played, and omits one that was. Note that A Whiter Shade of Pale is not listed, any more than The Miller's Tale is, but that song #10 of the second set is given no title at all.
