Re: The Tour 2017

On the CD I skipped the version of "Money". couldn't listen to it. But his version in Amsterdam was GREAT. The new version of Stainsby Girls , the part vocal/piano,...

Re: New album andUK and European Tour

I'm very curious about the new album. But more... I'm curious if this means that we will finaly hear other songs during his concert. I've been to the last 3 concerts CR gave in Amsterdam 2010 Heineken Music Hall, 2012 Paradiso (by far the best i've seen) and in 2014 Carré. The set-list almost did no...

Re: Chris Rea song or album with special memories

It probably isn't the most well-known song from Chris. "Danielle's Breakfast" It's a instrumental number from his album Dancing With Strangers. My wife Ingrid and I played this album very often in 1988, when she was pregnant from our second son. After giving birth, she had to stay in bed for a few d...

Gr8 GIG Paradiso A'dam

The concert in Amsterdam Paradiso was fabulous.
I think, it was the best concert i ever saw of Chris. His playing was fantastic and he was in a very good mood.
I think Paradiso is the best venue for concerts like this. Image

Re: Berlin February4th 2012 ICC - SPOILER!!!

It's All Gone" gave me goose bumps - I've never had the opportunity to hear this song live since Chris played this song for the last time in 1989 (??? - please correct me).
Fabulous song...
Did he play it including the "finger-snap" in the middle ?? :) :)

Re: Did Chris ever record

Candy Dulfer (daughter of Hans Dulfer, who's still life and kicking) got world-famous with this hit.
She even played several times together with Prince on his concerts through the world.

Yes, that was the one. I think the Avatar of Bart is also a picture that was taken at that occasion ;-)
