The Southampton gig and more

Peter played a very long show last night at the Southampton Guildhall. "WOW that was amazing" says Blue Eyes "Peter was on great form".
"Wasn't a memorable night" says Lookandy "but he did play some old Libs rarities like 'Hooray for the 21st Century', 'Gang of Gin', 'Bucket Stop', 'All At Sea' and a couple more I can't remember now which was nice but nobody knew what they were. Then there were the predictable singalongs. It wasn't really shit but it wasn't that good at all. Loads of songs tripping over each other with Pete stopping halfway through, missing key lines, not playing guitar sometimes and incoherently playing his harmonica. Did a nice rendition of 'For Lovers' though".
Setlist (not in the right order): Can't stand me now, Gang of gin, She is far, Music when the lights go out, Arcadie, All at sea, East of edan, Salome, New love grows on trees, The Ha Ha wall, The blinding, Death on the stairs, Lust of the libertines, Hooray for the 21st century, The delaney, The man who would be king, Bucket shop, Don't look back into the sun, Fuck forever, Sheepskin tearaway, Tell the king, Time for heroes, For lovers, Albion, Campaign of hate, I wish.
