Phenomenal three hour set, with Neil in blistering form. In no particular order, Mr Soul, Love and Only Love, DBTR, Words, Alabama, Walk On, Vampire Blues, Roll Another Number, Mansion, Hank to Hendrix, Harvest Moon, Out on the Weekend, HoG, ATGR, Needle and loads more. Neil's first ever Belfast gig, and he really made his mark.

Unbelievable show in Belfast. Glasgow was amazing but this was off the scale.

Nice mix of songs, throwing in a lot of changes from Sunday.

The pacing felt better and in my opinion the momentum was greatly improved in the 2nd half of the show.

The band were outstanding and I love how they watch Neil during the longer workouts to see what direction he's going to take it next.

Every single person on stage seemed to be loving it, constant grins and singing along, with or without microphones. 3 hours of pure joy.

There will likely be even better shows as the tour progresses but right now this will be hard to top.

Re: last night's setlist and show length - Wow!

Mansion On The Hill from Scotland:

So wonderful to hear Neil playing lead guitar like this again.

Feeling the buzz for Dublin tonight after reading all those tweets above. Kind of sorry I didn't book a ticket for Belfast too.

I was thinking this might be the last European tour. Now I suspect Neil is only just getting started!

Every performance I've heard from these two shows so far (apart from a slightly dodgy version of F*!#in' Up) has been magical.

These videos from the first two nights are absolutely amazing. I thought the New Braunfels and New Orleans shows were mind blowing, but I feel like the band somehow went and raised it up another notch for Europe. Damn.

July 15th can't get here quick enough.
