Was it a private party? Sounds intriguing.

Thanks for the reply!

I think so. A friend he made a promise to or something. I nearly wept when I saw the setlist.

Gianluca invited about 30 friends from Germany, Ireland, England, Netherlands and Austria - gig buds & friends who I got know because of many shows he went to. I came in totally late, missed the first three songs and paid more than I will pay for my trip to the UK in November, but it was totally worth it. Pretty nice atmosphere, a lot of talking between the songs (like storys behind the songs) and after every song, Frank asked us, what we wanted to hear next. We have all seen him many times, so nobody was sad there were not many "normal set songs" like The Road or Peggy etc.
Ben Morse was with Frank, took a lot of pictures and videos... so I guess there is a chance there will be something online at some point.
65 gigs in 16 countries...
moving, keep moving - the tour never stops.

Thanks for the report!!!

Setlist looked awesome and a photo watergirl posted on fb showed how small the audience was! Show of a lifetime, for sure!

It was an absolute privilege to be there and, yes, it was a dream setlist. At one point Frank said, "I am sure none of you want to hear me sing 'The road', right?", so it was a fantastic request set. It did not get messy. People kind of took turns requesting. Mine were 'Cowboy chords' and 'Sailor's boots'. A few songs had to be abandoned because Frank did not remember the words well enough. He jokingly called it "The B-sides set".

Thank you for this report, too! What a cool night to be a part of.

Loved the photos!

Perry and I (well I haven't really checked with Perry;)) would like to invite Frank to do a house party in Sarasota, Florida and you are all invited.;)
