Hey All,

For those interested I noted down the set list of last nights awesome concert. It seems to be quite different to the previous night's one having 7 different songs in each set list. Quite a huge amount really. You could almost make a full concert of the orchestral ones he interchanges!

I have also taken some small video clips that I will add to youtube over the day and post and same with some photos too.

The set list was as follows and all songs were with orchestra unless indicated:

Zak & Sara
Alice Childress (One of my all time favourites and it was amazing!)
All U Can Eat
Jesusland
Carrying Cathy (Just stunning! Also, Ben forgot the words after the bridge and the words he came out with were "La la la la la la la la Folds’ forgotten the words" - classic!)
Fred Jones pt 2
Landed
Philosophy (inc. Misirlou)
Not the Same (+ audience as vocals but no teaching of the parts - spontaneous and beautiful with orchestra and choir, he just turned to us in the first Ahh bit and conducted... sing loud and proud we did!)
Army - Solo
Adelaide
Mess - (So good to hear the orchestral version of this)
Gracie
Evaporated
Steven's Last Night in Town
Brick
One Angry Dwarf and 200 Solemn Faces (Completely rocked the house!)
Narcolepsy
-------------
Rockin' The Suburbs - Solo
The Luckiest

All in all a fkn great concert. One of the best in fact. I thought it was so much more balanced and cohesive than the WASO DVD.... that and I got to meet Ben afterwards...  :) Will post vids and photos soon.

Alice Childress and Carrying Cathy. Mess and Adelaide for that matter.  Shoot. I need an orchestra date near my part of the world.

I was blown away by all the 'new' stuff. I was expecting a rehashed WASO set list.... it was something special... bring on the "With Orchestra" Album I say!

As promised, a handfull of small videos (not full songs) that I recorded at last nights concert. Repeat. They are not complete songs (as I didn't want to spend my whole night looking through my mobile phone) but a taste none the less.

Enjoy!

Nice work Nick! I was there too  ;D

How did you meet the folds himself?

I recorded the audio to this show but it came out all weird.. there's weird clicking noises and the audio levels fluctuate. Oh well.

Good stuff!

Nice. I can't get the videos to work. I love Ben's expression in your picture together.

Wish he'd played Mess at Thursday's show. Oh well... any chance you have a vid of that one, too?

No I didn't Mess... was too transfixed to record it. I wish someone had a recording of at least one full concert from this series.

ChudleyCannons: YouTube will have to verify them first I assume it'll take a few more hours first. And as for that expression... It's pretty funny, hey

Mightyb0y: Just was hanging around chatting to some mates (near stage door) and he came out afterwards. He signed my T-shirt from last concert and had a photo taken with me. He signed my brother's notebook and drew a piano... it's awesome. I'll get a scan up of it sometime. Are there any good parts of the recording you did??

Hey Everyone!
I'm new here, and boy am i glad I found this site
*big smiles*
Well I thought I'd post in this thread because I'm seeing Ben with the Queensland Orchestra on Friday night and reading this thread has made me even more uber-excited, and I just had to share that with someone who understands!

I'm so going to hang around the stage door. hehe!

Anyway, I look forward to getting to know all you awesome people!

Keep smiling,
Kate.
