Post subject: More Specials songs on tour Reply with quote

Hey, I've just recently returned from the excellent Munich gig.
I decided to drop out to the venue early to catch the band on the way in.
When they were doing the soundcheck they played "Pearl's Cafe" "Sock it to them JB" and one or two other "More Specials" songs but they didn't play them at the actual gig. Pity because Pearl and JB sounded great.

Have the band played any of these songs at other gigs yet? Just wondering if they were rehearsing them for future gigs or just toying around with the idea of playing them.

Cheers
Peter

It sounded like Neville doing Rhoda alright lol but I'm sure Roddy and Lynval will join in to get the crowd going. Sock it to them JB sounded incredible, even the staff in the car park/garden area of the arena where taking notice of the tune. Some how the new JB titles don't fit into the song. Try squeeze "Quantum of Solace" into one of the links Very Happy

I think this approach of treating the UK fans by saving up some tracks is not very fair towards fans outside the UK. In Cologne they played a 75 minute-short set, not even including Ghost Town and Terry didn't bother showing up for the encore.
Don't get me wrong, the concert was great. Full of power, fantastic sound and 5 out of 6 seemed to enjoy what they were doing.
I know that Terry has got issues to deal with. I heard that Neville said they were all sick. But Lynval's excuse that they have to stop "because the authorities will switch the lights on on them" sounded a little lame. They could easily have played longer, had they started on time.
The four gigs in Germany were the one and only chance to see the band over here in 30 years (if you don't count the two festival appearances last year). People have paid a lot of money and sold out every show.
They could at least try to show the same kind of respect to fans everywhere by not playing a shortened set over here.

I understand what you at saying and yes its probably not fair for the foreign fans but its just something they wanna do that way but they have been ill, Nev has been off it and Terry was suffering with his voice so although they arent excuses for them , its an inking into why saw what you did. Sorry to hear it didnt go to plan, but I just hope you enjoyed the shows.

I did, as I said. One of the best gigs ever, in many, many years.
Maybe they could make up for it by putting the songs missing from sets over here out for a bundle download. I have bought my CD - and it sounds absolutely gorgeous, better than most live albums that were remixed in a studio afterwards - but would like to have Ghost Town, Sock It, Pearl's Cafe, I Can't Stand It or Stupid Marriage as well.
Saying that, a live album compiling the best versions each of the songs played on the tour would do the trick, too.
