Have been looking forward to this greatly since it was announced and very happy to see the Berlin, Waldbühne show so well represented. It was a beautiful day at a stunning venue with Neil and POTR on searing form. Perfect concert. Shame Danger Bird from that day didn't make the cut, but Rockin' In The Free World and Fuckin' Up were also standouts for me. Overall its a refreshing change from the usual live setlists (no ATGR, HOG or OM) and the inclusion of On The Beach is pure gold. Wish I'd made that Antwerp show just for that. But after 7 attempts I finally got Cortez live in Amsterdam (another contender for this release IMHO). Also would have been perfect if he'd played Vampire Blues as he planned in Hyde Park to protest Barclays before dropping it from the setlist because he thought it would be a downer. All the more special that this was the last time we saw Neil in Europe, but I sincerely hope it will not be THE last time we see him here.

so what do we suppose Performance Series 17 through 20 will be? Alchemy, Polar Vortex, what else?

At 6/27/2022 10:48:00 AM, Blogger Phil said...

There is a lot of possibilities to fill the gap between n°16 and 21... Alchemy is obvious but I'm not sure for Polar Vortex. From 2007 to 2009 era, we have already the Tim Pope movie and Jonathan Demme's one. From Le Noise, Journeys is available. I agree it will be great to get vinyls or CD from these shows. Neil has already talked about a concert from the Honour The Treaties tour but it's really exciting for me. Overall, the european CH tour of 2014 will be a wonderful idea ! Very nice setlists and last tour with Poncho and Rick Rosas. It means a lot... And the Amsterdam show of 2016 with POTR will be fantastic. It's available on the timeline but it deserves an official release (even if it's a 3h30 recording...).

@ Greying Rider

Such good memories of POTR in Europe. So many great songs but they couldn't all make the cut. A good problem, as they say.

Definitely hoping for another Neil in Europe + everywhere. One more time for the Horse.

@ wardo - looks like an answer below.

btw, looks like some more reviews coming this summer??!!

@ Phil - seems reasonable. thanx.
