Thanks, One-Eye, for the listing and the comments

Robert's Box with new additional Hammond solo
Wall Street Blues Sensational solo from Geoff Whitehorn
A Rum Tale New effect from Josh during solo like a fluttering heart
A Dream in Ev'ry Home Nice extended Hammond solo at end
One Eye on the Future  
Simple Sister 'Well, Geoff : time to give us some of that heavy metal stuff move some air!'
Whaling Stories  
The VIP Room  
Kaleidoscope With its new 'spacecraft' beginning
The Blink of an Eye We'd like to dedicate this song about 9/11 to the emergency services here and in London
Pandora's Box A big pirate laugh after the word 'main'
Broken Barricades 'We're going up to Edmonton tomorrow to play again with the orchestra and choir. It's been about forty years this coming month.  And while this is a concert, we'd like to take advantage of you and rehearse some of these songs we might be doing'

Amazing ending structure

An Old English Dream Gary sang the ending,  '... an old English dream'. Then Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1 (Elgar) [just a bit 'cause they are homesick]
A Salty Dog Gary talking about the sign for 'The Pep Boys', who sell tyres ... 'That was the last number in our set but we forgot to go off.' By popular request, dedicated to 'The Pep Boys and anyone else who watches from above.' Geoff Dunn now making this song his own much like BJ did,  but still honouring Procol past
Toujours l'Amour  
A Whiter Shade of Pale 'This is for anyone who might have never seen us before; we wouldn't want you to walk away having not heard it ...'

Two verses, traditional ending; two times around instrumentally after verse one, the second time being a very lovely guitar solo with crowd approval
