On the Other Side of the World? Wow.

Assuming Lost in the Harbor was done the same was as in Phoenix, Tom wasn't actually on piano, but some tiny organ thing. Don't know what it's called, but I think it was this:

Oh my God. Way Down in the Hole? Goin Out West? I could just die from excitement. I may just have to get a commerative tatoo in Columbus.

Bethany said...

...more like "commemorative" and "tattoo." Geez.

In Phoenix he performed Lost in the Harbor on a Harmonium.

Beautiful little instrument.

Other side of the world...

does that mean, "that feel", "pancho's lament" and "hope that I don't fall in love with you" are actually possible? lol

Ian said...

Wow On the Other Side of the World is one of my favorite songs by him, though I really don't care much for Trampled Rose or Metropolitan Glide but considering I live in NY and won't get to see any concerts I would be happy to attend any.

Scott said...

Did he play two encores in El Paso? Aw I'm so jealous. I loved the second night in Phoenix but he played some of my favorites opening night and in Texas. I wish I could go to all of the shows and just follow him around!

In the middle of his set, right before he started playing piano, a cop walked on stage…Tom sort of made fun of the cop for a while, and then government person came out and awarded him the key to the city- suprising to everyone. Strange- very exciting moment-
And it was actually a Estey Reed Organ painted black- very similar to a harmonium.

I'm praying for a "Christmas Card from a Hooker" performance in Dallas on Monday. It's my first favorite of his. Has it only been performed once so far?

Old Man Duggan said...

Yeah, Lost in the Harbor was on the reed organ, but Lucky Day and House Where Nobody Lives were on piano.

Baron Lane said...

Has there been any merch on sale at the shows? Thaks.

Went to both the 1st night in Phoenix and the El Paso show and am lucky enough to travel for work and just end up on the same route as Tom. Will be at the last U.S. show in Atlanta. Here are my reviews and a few videos.


El Paso

I loved it!

I flew down to El Paso from Canada, and we spent the day in Juarez before going to the concert.

'Lost in the Harbour' was incredible.

But that version of 'Dirt in the Ground' absolutely levelled me. The way they hesitated the groove before each line of the verse was beautiful. I almost cried.
