Review from Rowan:
I was also at Manchester and was lucky enough to get Dido's set list, the full set (which I presume will be the same for the rest of this tour) was:
My Lover's Gone
Here With Me
See The Sun (Brand New)
Then, as an encore:
Don't Leave Home (Newish)
Don't Think Of Me
As Dave said, it was a really good gig though, I'm afraid to say, not as
good as in London a couple of months ago. The people there (of which there
were many) were not as into the music. There was a lot of head bobbing but
not a lot else.
The two new songs, 'Don't Leave Home' and 'See The Sun' (the latter of which is about friendship apparently) are quickly becoming my favourite tracks. The vocals are mind-blowing on both. I really hope she manages to capture the sound when she records them.
I was talking to Vinny and the bassist after the gig. They were very friendly and genuinely interested in talking about the music and the tour. Dido didn't come out but I got a few autographs on my treasured song list!
I agree about Tom McRae - he was really good although I think he was a little annoyed at people talking right through his set. Still, he's doing a solo tour of sorts soon so that'll be worth going to.
