A nice concert was the last evening in Bremen. The audience rose from their seats very early. Time for dancing. Bryan, who has left a good physical and vocal impression, has visibly enjoyed it. There was an unscheduled addition with editions of you. The band was great, too. Thank you Mr. Ferry for this nice evening.

Cher J.O'B,
Going forward it might just be more efficient if you just advise us if there is ever a change !
Can you throw any light on the strange case of the never changing set list ?
Salutations,
W2

I had no input or discussions regarding the set list, therefore I cannot make a comment regarding this.

I would have liked to have seen more changes and tap in to the canon of work and play some more rarely performed material. I would imagine a lot to do with the live set now is to pace the voice throughout the show hence numbers like If There Is Something, Dreamhome etc.

There are a few hit singles that have either never been played live or not for a long time:

All I Want Is You
This Is Tomorrow (perfect for Spedding)
Angel Eyes
Over You
Is Your Love Strong Enough?
The Right Stuff.

......to name a few.

J.O'B.

Cher J.O'B.,

W2 has never known the forum be so quite during a tour and the set list has to have something to do with this.

Coming out of the Apollo, two of your fellow countryman were heard to comment; "Yes it was good but it was the same as last year."

Sadly that sums it up and Windswept can't for the life of him understand why he would visit the same countries as last year with a near identical set list. It's not like he's short of material.

Frankly W2 would take your suggestions (minus IYLSE) rather than sit through 'The Same Old Scene' again.

Maybe the touring days are coming to an end and this really is the last fandango ?

Nobody wants the party to end and our hero can never be faulted. He's given us over fifty years of fabulous music and nobody would blame him for a nano second if, at 72, he wants to hang up his mike. Better that than tread the boards with the never changing set list.

Windswept wants to remember 'Peak Ferry'.

Salutations a tous,

W2

Sign of the Times, Wow. I have always wanted to hear him perform that live, one of my favorite solo tracks, great energy.I am so jealous !
never seems to make it into a USA setlist.
Casanova another great addition, but one that I have heard numerous times in the past, still a nice add.

Uninspired, of little consolation to UK audiences and very much a case of too little, too late.

If he'd included Is your love strong enough? then undoubtedly , yes.

I attended the concert in Roskilde,Denmark on Sunday the 17th of June,and I was quite pleased to experience many of the less known songs for the very first time:
Bête Noire,Zamba and Stronger Through The Years to mention a few.
Highlight of the evening for me was Mamouna,beautiful and majestyc in it's own way.
Mr Ferry's voice was sensational good and The Great Man and his band members seemed to enjoy themselves.
The band played well,especially hats off to Jorjja Chalmers for her superb playing,it's funny how her sax skills reminds me of Andy MacKay.
Oh,and Chris Spedding celebrated his 74th Birthday on this evening.
I consider this concert as one of the most memorable,and I've been to quite a lot of BF/RM concerts.
Take care out there!

Best regards,
Henrik.
