The Hammersmith Apollo had closed off the balcony and seated everyone in the lower section, which was virtually full. Although it took too long for them to get to their seats, the crowd was respectful and appreciative.
Todd's voice was again in great form, and there was an ease in the transitions and interactions among the 3 artists that wasn't there in DC.
Here is TR's set list, based on my scribblings in the dark:
on guitar: 1. Lysistrata 2. Beloved Infidel 3. I Saw the Light (calypso style) 4. Cliche 5. Love of the Common ManThe show seems to be getting better as it goes along. As I've said in previous reviews, I don't mind the occasional flub. I cherish every live performance from this brilliant and talented artist - warts and all.
on piano: 6. Viking Song 7. Hawking 8. Hello It's Me
on ukulele: 9. Bang on the Drum
on guitar: 10. Afterlife 11. Black & White
with Ethel: 12. Lord Chancellor's Nightmare (incredible!) 13. Pretending to Care (bring tissues)
all: 14. Stood Up
encore: While My Guitar Gently Weeps
