This was an awesome show. I have no idea what the setlists have been like for the other shows on this tour (and I'm not going to check) but there were loads of unexpected treats in there. Worth the wait!

Also, Matt Lucas singing with Bitter Ruin, not sure if that's a regular thing!

Tom and Mary is the only actual consistent surprise. Emaline's happening like every other night, but SCC and Walter are pretty much standard at this point. Walter came and went a few times on the US side, but the UK has gotten it each night, and I believe so did AUS.

Bit disappointed there was no One Angry Dwarf, and the banter was slightly lacking between Ben and the crowd, but they played A LOT of tunes, great value for money!

I will say in their defence that they're evidently a bit jetlagged at the minute.  It was evident in Bristol, especially at the start, but they were flying by the end.

I'm psyched about the return of Hava Nagila.
