Belfast, Ireland

An early departure from Dublin and a short flight to Belfast putting us at the venue earlier than usual for the viewing for the FA Cup final. It was a long afternoon for the the few that weren't interested in watching the match, which strangely seemed to be the Yanks, who busied themselves with on-line activities and the occasional stab at a musical instrument.

The show was sold out at about 4,000 and much like last nights show in Dublin, the security played a heavy hand with the audience until the last couple of songs when people were allowed to stand and come to the front. This was our first show in Belfast since 1996.

Another short flight to Edinburgh where we spend the night and play tomorrow. Guy brought along a martini shaker, Susi added the gin, vermouth, olives and ice and our airborne cocktail repertoire has been magically transformed.

So long,
