I went to see John and Danny in Glasgow last Tuesday, and I though it was absolutely fantastic. John was, eh ‘relaxed’, forgot a few words, wasn’t always quite in tune, and his jokes are getting worse, however the gig was one of the best I have ever seen – a real touch of magic ( I thought). I went a long with a friend, and my little sister – who is not a JM fan at all – and both of them raved about it. A few songs in particular gave me shivers down my spine – My Baby Girl at the beginning really touched me. Another nice bit was when John walked off, leaving Danny on his own to sing “Blue Monk” (and take the mickey out of John!) – does anyone know if he did this at any other shows? Other antics included tuning trouble (which everyone laughed at) and losing his capo (which was in his pocket all the time). Anyways, I certainly enjoyed the evening, it was just like having them in you living room! I hope other folks enjoy the tour as well – would like opinions from anyone who catches them.
