I've noticed that Lisa hasn't been at the last few Damo gigs in Europe because she's sick. Damo says she's back in Ireland.


I was thinking that was pretty convenient for her since her best friend has just released her second play in Galway this week. Lisa had a role in the first play "Mysterious World of Birds".


Don't get me wrong, I'd have nothing against Lisa taking some time off to support her friends aslong as everyone knew which gigsshewasn't going to be at.


I wouldn't be too happy if I'd travelled to Paris expecting to see Lisa and Damien (eh, should be Damien and Lisa) and she wasn't there.


Maybe she is sick tho, and I'm just trying to cause trouble. :-)

I wrote to info@damienrice to make sure she was going to be on the US tour and this is what they wrote back,



"Lisa has had to come home from the European tour last week for personal reasons but she will be rejoining the band for the US tour."

I was really disappointed not to see Lisa in Paris, but the band members can choose whether to play at gigs or not - I've read that in an interview, where Damien said the songs were "designed" in a way that permitted him to play them even alone - so I shouldn't have been that surprised and disappointed...


Musiciansstill have a life, they can be sick or have important things they don't want to miss sometimes.


And indeed, even if Lisa wasn't here at the Paris gig, it was an amazing concert and to be fair, she might ave add even more emotion to the songs, but her absence didn't diminish them at all.

All I'm really trying to say is that if Lisa knew in advance that she wasn't going to be at those gigs they should have made that clear on the website.


There are definitely a lot of people who want to see Lisa just as much as Damien. I know people who spent a lot of money going to Paris to see that gig and were really disappointed that Lisa wasn't there. If they had known that she was unavailable they could've gone to see one of the other european gigs.


But like I said, maybe she is sick, I'm only specultating. And if she is sick or has some unforseen 'personal reason' for dropping out of the tour then I hope it's nothing serious.Edited by: Banjaxed

Oh I hope too! And even if I only travelled from Nantes, I had somethg for her and I couldn't give it to her, so believe me I was really disappointed. I could't eat before the gig, even! But then the gig was so brilliant I forgot my grief [img]smileys/smiley17.gif[/img]

Reports from some of the gigs Lisa did participate in (the Brussels one in particular from what I recall) seemed to indicate that she wasn't singing to the best of her abilities, I doubt the band hatched an elaborate scheme to have her half-ass it for those gigs to create the impression that she was ill so she could sneak home. And even if she isn't bedridden by whatever is wrong with her if she can't go on stage then ofcourse she is going to go home.

I heard she'd read on this very forum that I was starting a tribute band and that 'tink' was a bit of competition, so she's gonna try and muscle in!!!

It's a bit coincidental that she'll be back on the US tour...the same US tour that Glen will be on! [img]smileys/smiley2.gif[/img]

Haven't we learned how wrong those rumours always are???

Fake is about Damien...
Damien is in hospital after being beaten up after a gig in London...
Glen said he and Lisa are an item...

Now Lisa has left the band? AGAIN?[img]smileys/smiley17.gif[/img]

~Smirks~

Personal reasons are personal... maybe she's ill, maybe there were family problems... who knows, who cares? As far as I see it, a Damien Rice gig needs only one person there - Damien Rice. Yeah, Lisa/Shane/Vivienne/Tomo add to it, but as long as there's him there you'll hear sweet music...


Saying that, I've only ever seen him when they've all been there... so I cannae really empathise too well

No, you're wrong sadfully. If Lisa or Vyvienne wouldn't be e.g. at the Berlin gig, it would have been a very, very crappy concert...

Like I said a few weeks ago: Damien would be NOTHING without Lisa (or Vyvienne). Even on gigs. Edited by: Hendrik

I totally disagree. The first time I saw Damo he was all by himself and it was just mesmerizing. And I wasn't even "into him" yet at that time. It took a song or two and he had the whole room in the palm of his hand.

He's put together a fantastic band, obviously they add a lot, but on his own he's still a better singer / songwriter than most, in my opinion.

I agree with Angela, I have only seen Damien without Lisa, and I was completely satisfied, I felt a little bad when I found out she wasn't going to be there. But he was so amazing, I didn't miss her.. He was enough!! [img]smileys/smiley2.gif[/img]
