Nooooo, I'm actually an Ernie girl

Well, that will surely haunt me in my dreams
Speaking of which... I think I'll try to get some sleep now. Sweet dreams.

I got to Winterthur two days ago. I walked around the city yesterday but i wasnt as lucky as you to see him
The venue does look nice! Smaller than i thought it would be so that's great!
Cant believe the day is finally here!

Well, maybe you'll run into him today.
He's tiny and very low profile. I didn't see him at first. Really... I just heard an Irish accent, turned my head, and there he was.

So, did you enjoy the concert? Any surprises in terms of songs he played. Or even news on the album release?

The concert is tonight, Matt.
And like the others said: the venue is very petite... I'm so glad I'm here.

Oh, I see! (blush) So you actually got there a day early, as did the man himself? The venue being as small as you describe it makes me even more jealous. :-P Enjoy! And report back!

i know that feeling and i remember it well. i´m very happy for you guy, enjoy!

car, i know what you meant. i was literally one piano away from damien but i couldn´t say a word! not even "merry christmas" (it was xmas indeed!)... then, i went to see him in italy and he was there, enjoying himself and chatting around after the after-show and i said to myself "why not", so i approached, i said two or three common things and we exchage hugs, he... and he even winked at me. of course, it was a stupid thing and he certainly don´t remember me at all, but it meant a lot to me... so, try to enjoy yourself as well

I just didn't know I could still freeze like that.
It's like being 8 again and having to stand in front of the classroom or something. (Well not totally like that ) and it is so completely ridiculous, because he's probably the least intimidating person I've ever seen.

I'm going to have a look at the sound check now! (Okay seems I'm way to early )

Oh, and happy birthday, Cuuliem!

Well... I'll write a full report in a little while, but no news about the album, only that it's coming, and that he's not going to talk about it anymore. So we'll just have to be patient.

Let's see...
The regular festival set list with a few additions.
Opening with the professor>delicate>elephant>woman like a man> I remember (with girl from the audience)> older chests > cannonball (unplugged)>volcano > cheers darlin'
Oh, and rootless tree and 9 crimes as well of course, but I'm not sure about the sequence.

Encore: 'ain't no sunshine' cover, joined by the guys from other lives
Second encore: blower's daughter

(This is probably incomplete, but I'm too tired)
No after show (that I know of)
I have some pics, taken with my little back-up camera, I'll share the best ones. Here's a quick preview.
That's it for now... Too tired.

More will be added when I find the time.

As Encore he also did a cover of "aint no sunshine" with The Other Lives.
There was no aftershow in winterthur. Had a chat and hugs with his fans however.
Gonna upload a video of that when im back home later...

Thanks for tbe report and the wonderful pictures! You really made it close to the stage, then, didn't you? What seems discouraging to me is him not playing a single new song and not wanting to comment on the album any further.

Thanks carrroline and Chrysler!
Looks like he also said the album is coming "very soon" to a few fans after the show.
In Italy we have rumours about the imminent announcement of a gig or tour. I think it all will happen in the forthcoming weeks

Great pics!! I was on the right side of the stage.
This being the first time i see him live, i couldnt have asked for anything better! I was there during the sound check, got to actually meet him and get a hug from him , and got a good spot in the front.
He sounded great! Given that I Remember is one of my favorite songs i personally didnt like the girl's voice in it. It sort of ruined for me he was great! Wish he would have done it just himself

When i spoke with him and told him i was from Peru but living in the US, he told me he will be there in October, probably LA and NY; so maybe we will all get lucky and have more chances to see him

I took lots of pics (not as great as the ones above though ) n several videos that i will upload once i return home
I think i'm still on cloud 9 after last night
