Stage setlist showed Conquistador & AWSoP swapped, also Nothng but the Truth which was skipped. No mid-show break (thanks, Bob, and Chris)

My last show for this tour: it was great fun. thanks to Procol, those who made the Convention possible, and of course all of my wonderful friends ... great to see you again. Hopefully "Still There'll Be More"! (thanks, Evan)

It was good to see Gary in fine voice, no strain even at the top notes of A Salty Dog. A bit dusty with age, but he had that in his 20s.(thanks, Chris)

The show was great, like the other ones. There was a support act - some guy with an acoustic guitar - who played for half an hour. Geoff and Matt nearly tangoed off stage during Grand Hotel's break. Wall Street Blues seemed to be the highlight of the show. Amazing guitar solo by Geoff W (and great drumming by Geoff D). As their final encore they played AWSoP with the real intro. (thanks, Marvin)

The venue was pretty much filled, including a balcony - a very enthusiastic crowd, giving standing ovation after standing ovation and a call for an encore that seemed to go on forever. The band was dazzling and Gary was in rare form with very funny - and sometimes perplexing - between-song patter (this included a discussion with Geoff W. about the difference between moose, caribou, reindeer, etc.)  Wall Street Blues included one of Geoff's most fiery solos ever - the audience went wild. After the show Gary seemed energised and ready for more. Very encouraging - I think they've got their second wind. (thanks, Bert)
