Well, if Robert was coming from Germany....we could at least travel from Sydney to witness this historic event....coupled with their performances at the Livid Festival(the next day), it was always going to be worthwhile.
Arrived on Friday morning...26 degreees, beautiful sunshine, in their hometown and meeting lots of very friendly local fans in the queue to get in.
Here is the set Grant and Robert played, acoustic guitar each.....to a very appreciative audience at The Zoo in Brisbane....they too....were obviously enjoying it!!
Cattle and Cane Head Full Of Steam Baby Stones Suicide (guessing title...new one from Grant) Velvet Claws (again, guessing...new one of Grant's) Bow Down Right Here I'll Jump Dream About Tomorrow In The Core Of a Flame He Lives My Life (Robert's newie) Spring Rain Was There Anything I Could Do? Dive For Your Memory #1st Encore (Robert throws chocolates to the audience) One Plus One (duet!!) People Say #2nd Encore Streets Of Your Town Rock'n'Roll Friend Love Goes On #3rd Encore Clouds (Grant's guitar only...Robert singing)
It was all brilliant, the highlights for me were Robert's new one, "He
Lives My Life" ...Grant & Robert
in absolute harmony for the whole of "One Plus One" and
Grant's voice overall.
We chatted briefly with RF & GM after the show along with Adele and Glen from Robert's band on the "Warm Nights" Tour.
