Re: The Tour 2017

Re: Chris Rea crooner cover album

well, the idea was about cover album, not album of his own songs......

"Before I go" would be perfect too. Next too what was played on Radio 2 and live on stage.

Re: The Tour 2017

it could be worse if he played only one new song and then the same old setlist. wish he had changed some of the old songs for example to Windy Town or Curse of the traveller (which would fit to theme of road songs) The songs from RFL I like the least - and the well known songs since many years :( My...

Re: The Tour 2017

well, I would not say anything about the phone recordings, sounds bad always :)

Wonder which song was cut out from the set to make space for Road Ahead and was there other new songs??

Hey people who were there, give us the setlist already :D

Re: The Tour 2017

few things: - I knew setlist would follow the past tours - He has said he ain't the rock star type of guy who makes the audience eat out of his hand, that includes the fact he ain't taking contact that much and he surely won't wear clothes he would feel uncomfortable. He just plays the songs and tha...

Re: NEW RELEASE 2017 - ROAD SONGS FOR LOVERS!!!

Listened album once yesterday from CD in my car, sounds of course better than from Spotify.

Looking for listening more, but there's these few things stopping me, life, family and work, so more during weekend!

Chris Rea crooner cover album

Recent BBC2 "Ain't No Sunshine" cover brought to my mind all the other covers he has done such as Moon River and "Left My Heart in San Francisco". Also thought came up to my mind that what if Chris would do album of cover songs? Would you like it? I know Chris himself is still shy about his vocals a...

Re: NEW RELEASE 2017 - ROAD SONGS FOR LOVERS!!!

ok, setlist must have some of the old songs, but I guess those contracts don't say setlist must be the same in each gig of the tour? man with hundreds songs and he can only play the exact 20 songs or so, it is really like saying to rally driver you can only use one gear and not the others? really fo...

Re: NEW RELEASE 2017 - ROAD SONGS FOR LOVERS!!!

same goes on all of album, not just "Beautiful". Funny, time to time it feels like Chris is starting to sing "You Are So Beautiful To Me" by Joe Cocker. Oh yes, that makes things clearer. Great cover on BBC, I too wish that Chris would do an entire album like this. Thanks a lot for the links!! I fin...
