Re: All unique songs CR has ever played on full time gigs

Hi Ace of Hearts,

do you know if there is a listenable recording of Driving Home played live?

And one more question - I found an info that Driving Home was played in December 1986 as well.
My record from Glasgow 1986-11-30 is not full gig and there is no Driving Home on it.
I know there is a 90 min. record from Edinburgh Playhouse taken the other day, maybe it has Driving Home (I do not know the tracklist)

Thanks again,
best regards

Hi all,

I am not a YouTube frequest user, maybe somebody could do a list all songs Chris has ever played LIVE at different TV shows? I mean short appearances, like 2 times at Letterman's, not the long performances like Montreux, Beat Club ans so on, which I counted as full-time gigs.

Thank you everyone,

best regards
Andrey

Hi all,

I'm searching online if "90 Blues" has ever been played live?
I found one setlist on FM, somewhere in the beginning of 1993 it should have been played live on the God's Great Banana Skin Tour in the UK. Otherwise I have not find a setlist with this song in it? And I saw only three gigs in this Tour, is that correct, because of his first illness in 1993 maybe?
I saw in this thread the same question from Andrey, did you ever get an aswer to it?

And I have found someone on FB who confirmed she saw 90 Blues being played in Germany, 1992!
So is there a fan somewhere or radio/tv programm who taped. Who knows....
Thanks.
Anneke

11.03.1993 Mannheim Maimarkthalle
12.03.1993 Stuttgart Schleyerhalle
14.03.1993 Zurich Hallenstadion
17.03.1993 Innsbruck Olympiahalle

31.03.1993 Grenoble Summen
01.04.1993 Toulon Zenith
03.04.1993 Paris Zenith
05.04.1993 Brussels Forest National

I know that at least one date (I believe in France) had to be postponed but most of the dates above should be correct.

I think I've read about a flu or something like that so he had to pospone a date - but his first illness was later and had no major influence on the '93 tour.

setlist.fm is often not accurate (especially regarding earlier dates) and i think that 90's Blues was not played live during that tour - but I'm not sure.

Cheers,
Tobi

Thanks for your list Toby. Quite a big Tour!
This person was almost sure it was played, but almost isn't fully!

Best wishes,
Anneke

Maybe he played 90's Blues at some gig - but I highly doubt he played it as the first song as setlist.fm claims.

During this tour he started the concerts with an improvised introduction (it has been recorded live and is available amongst other tracks on the Maxi-CD-Single of "Too Much Pride") and this solo then faded into the first bars of Auberge.

This was at least the case on all recordings I've listened to - and these were from different locations (Germany, France, Scotland...)

I don't think he changed this arrangement during the tour.

I found one of these bootlegs, bad video, good sound on YT(Saarbrücken). I know which introduction you mean .
And no 90 Blues there for sure. So I think it just a very small possibility.
I know there is a French site with all Tours and setlists, but can't find it back. I'll keep searching ;)
If I find anything, I'll share.
