I just got back home from tonights gig at the Royal Albert Hall ... and the man did not disappoint ... absolutely fantastic gig ... he even changed a few songs in the set from the previous few nights ... including "Three Little Girls" from the album he did with JJ Cale "Road to Escondido" ... set list was as follows:

Electric section 1:
01. Going Down Slow
02. Key To The Highway
03. Old Love
04. Anything For Your Love
05. I Shot The Sheriff

Acoustic section:
06. Three Little Girls
07. Layla
08. Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out
09. Not Dark Yet
10. Anytime For You
11. Somewhere Over The Rainbow

Electric section 2:
12. Badge
13. Little Queen of Spades
14. Before You Accuse Me
15. Wonderful Tonight
16. Cocaine
17. Crossroads (encore)

Excellent seats to the right of the stage half way down the auditorium ... probably one of the best positions for the sound ... and good company in the form of Mr Rudge ...

Sweet He just needs to substitute "Wonderful tonite" with "Whippin Post " and off he goes like a prom dress

Yes, but ............did the Allman Brothers show up?!!!!

Is "Three Little Girls" some oneupmanship on Rolf Harris?

Or is it from The Mikado?!!!!

Nice to hear a positive revue. The british press, unsurprisingly have been a bit sniffy about Mr Clapton's performance. Probably the lack of costume changes and dancing girls

Just a heads-up for anyone else planning on going to Brixton Academy next Sunday to see Lynyrd Skynyrd ... Victoria Line Underground is closed all weekend ... so the only way to get there is by (infrequent) train or bus ... unless you know somewhere safe in the area to park a car

Looks like a fortuitous decision by me to go and see Skynyrd in Manchester on Saturday then Colin. Meeting a crowd of fellow Geordies up there so things could get messy!
.......... No jokes about holding a wake for Newcastle United necessary thanks.

Train times from Victoria are 21 and 51 past each hour, 7 minute journey. Last train back is 23:06. Or there's the Tube repacement bus service, or Bus Route 2 to Marleybone which goes to Victoria and Marble Arch, or 3 which is Trafalgar Square, Picadilly and Oxford Circus. Barry has recommended Ivan's Retreat, which is turn right as if coming out of Tube Station and just across the road.

Thanks for the info ... Stockwell looks like a reasonable alternative ... last tube is at 23-16 though so I will still need to leave the venue by 11pm ... does anyone know if there is a curfew on Sunday night at the Brixton Academy? ... no info on their website.

Jim & Barry ... and anyone else for a pre-show drink ... I will aim to be at "Ivan's Retreat" by about 5pm or so ...

Curfew will be 11pm. At least it was for the Black Crowes.
On the travel front Brixton is served by numerous bus routes

Thanks for the info Al ... 11pm should just about do it ... as long as I am by the exit and ready to run ...

Buses are a last resort for me as I need to get back home to Reading and they take too long to get back into central London ... if I can make that last tube at 11:16 from Stockwell then I should gey home by about 12:45 whereas getting a Bus at the same time from Brixton will add half an hour to the journey ... guess it all depends on how long they jam on Freebird

Anybody going to make one of the Mott The Hoople gigs set for 1st, 2nd 3rd, 5th & 6th October at the Hammersmith Apollo. Going with a mate to the gig on the 5th.

Anyway, Philippa and I went to see Cat "Yusuf" Stevens at the Shepherds Bush O2 (yuk!)last night. Not my cup of tea but she had a schoolgirl crush on him and I'd rather see Yusuf than Davy Jones of The Monkees!

It was part of a week-long celebration of Island Records' 50th birthday so there was an early start and a few bands which we missed as O'Neill's beckoned. We got in in time to see Baba Maal - I'm partial to a bit of World Music. As an encore, he and his acoustic guitarist were doing a version of One by U2 (prefer Warren's!) when on from the wings strolls this small, scruffy man."It's Bono", I said. On from stage right comes The Edge with an acoustic.

When all the excitement subsides, I see that Larry Mullen Jr and Adam Clayton are onstage too playing hand drums and bass. They finished One with a loose coda of Bob Marley's One Love and then did another one which wasn't One, if you see what I mean!

It wasn't really a U2 type audience so there was rather less pandemonium than caused by Butch Trucks showing up at a DTB show or, say, Clapton at Joe Bonamassa. We're not U2 fans but agreed that it was quite exciting.

This is truly the year of the guest appearance and I will be seriously disappointed if Messrs Crosby, Hillman, Clark etc do not turn up at Roger McGuinn next month!

Hi Colin, First 3 nights sold out in a shot so had to take a ticket for the Monday show otherwise the meet up at the weekend gigs for a few drinks sounded like a nice idea. As you say, hopefully the Mule can drop into London via Finland.

Also posted this in the "New Album from Skynyrd" topic -
Show at London Brixton Academy last night was, for me, a night of nostalgia, not having seen them since Feb 1977, and the set played last night could have been played back then. Glad I went as I love their music, but would have liked to see the current members putting their own personalities into the songs. Medlock played Allen Collins' Freebird solo almost note for note. The 3rd guitarist was a posing waste of space, but the rest of the band kicks ass. Thought something with the backdrop saying "God and Guns World Tour" would have had some of the forthcoming album previewed. As Colin (Harvey) said last night "we've paid our tribute to them by being there", but neither of us will be going back.

On now to Band of Heathens at Bristol on Thursday.....

Pretty much sums it up Jim ... glad I went ... had a great evening ... and the company wasn't too shoddy either ...

Yep. Ditto. I thought their new bass player was a very worthy addition too. Just bothers me that they don't play any of the new stuff. I keep asking myself why release it if you're not going to play it? Smokestack Lightning, Last Rebel both great songs. They really are missing Billy Powell though.

On leaving I remarked "best Lynyrd Skynyrd cover band you're going to see". Don't know why they just don't call them selves "Skynyrd". It worked for The Dead.

Last time I'm going to the toilet before a gig though. You all bleeding abandoned me when I returned. Was it something I said? Only Mike was left.

For all you interested we tried out some electricity with the new bass player last night and it worked great. Gonna track down a drummer too, so soon The Snakeoil Rattlers are gonna be loud and nasty. Watch out Drive-bys we're chasing you.

Band of Heathens tomorrow.

Come on Jim get yourself a Susan Tadeschi ticket.
