Title: Live in Bologna

Sunday 3th of April, in Bologna, Church of St.Agostino.
Fantastic live, really intense and moving. In the middle of altar of the church, Lloyd Cole seem...God, the God of music, of couse...
I stand in the third row in front of Mark Schwaber and i really enjoyed the acoustic show.
Compliments also to Mark Schwaber and Matt Cullen.
Thanks Lloyd for your music and for your cortesy after the show, signing autograph for your italian fans.
See you soon in Italy.

Title: Bologna

YES, great show in Bologna last Sunday, in front of an adoring audience...

I guess Mr. Cole was slightly moved by the love and affection pouring over him, as he joked "maybe we should play, in every Country, only 1 concert every 30 years"... ;-)
well, I *hope* he was joking..
see you soon indeed!

Title: Blue Lézard, Lausanne

A truly breathtaking set with both classic and new songs re-invented as classic (to be!) folk songs. The intimate venue was a perfect setting for these new arrangments. If anyone reading this is thinking of going then don't think just go! PS. thanks Lloyd for the chat and signing my CD's. And yes, the CD from "Live at The Hammersmith Apollo" is fantastic but then so was and is Rattlesnakes (a timeless classic). A+ en Suisse...until then I will keep thinking why I (now) love folk music :o)

Title: Bleu Lézard, Lausanne

Indeed it was a very good night at the Bleu Lézard. I found Lloyd radiant, relaxed and witty. And obviously there was a real complicity between the guys who shared the same pleasure to be on stage.
Among the many songs that were played to-night, I give a special mention to "So you'd like to save the world" and "Lost weekend", for their original rendition. A+++

Title: People's Place, Amsterdam

Dear Lloyd,

Thank you so much for a fantastic evening!!!

Ever since the release of "Rattlesnakes", I've been waiting to see you live. And guess what, you didn't disappoint me.
Now I know why you are such an important factor in my life. You can deliver the message of your songs!
You brought tears(of joy) to my eyes a few times.

Thank you for taking the time to sign and take a picture!

Hope to see you again real soon!

Kindest regards,

Posted by: Edwin van Welie @ 24/04/2011


Cheers to Mark and Matt!!!
Say hi to your brother!!!

Nice concert in Amsterdam. Next time would like to see you play with a drummer though. I tried to invite you to play on the evening radio show I work for but it turned out you were only in town that one day..

Title: People's Place

Thank you for a fantastic gig in Amsterdam! You hadn't been here for a while, but it was worth the wait. Nice venue (except for that airco blowing in your neck!).

You and Mark and Matt are a great team. I thoroughly enjoyed the two great long sets. Come back soon!

Enjoy the rest of the tour.

Cheerio, Mark

Hi Lloyd,
A big and warm thank you for a lovely concert in Copenhagen the other night.

Fantastic to hear the new songs from BR live - they blend in very well.

Best wishes

(I guess your Danish has grown a bit rusty since the Krasnapolsky-days, but in case you care, you got a very good review in the biggest Danish newspaper today (the text is much more positive than the 4/6 ranking - doesn't make sense - http://ibyen.dk/musik/koncert-beat/article1266696.ece
