Carl & Co in Ancona

After the first gig in Milan, Carl, Anthony, Drew and the rest of the crew continued their Italian mini-tour in the town of Ancona, on the Adriatic sea.
Report by Martina:
"I really thought it was lovely, the sound was great, there was a bit of a problem with Carl’s acoustic at the beginning, so he took electric and played What a Waster first, so the usual order got mixed up a bit. He didn’t play France, which was a shame. And I suppose he didn’t intend to play Ballad of Grimaldi, either, because he already invited Anthony on the stage, but Anthony didn’t show, so Carl said he’d play something else for us, then.
I thought his voice sounded great. They all seemed to be having a great time, the crowd were great and Carl stage-dived at the end. The room was really hot and Drew even complained about it in Italian at one point. The gig was supposed to be outside but was moved inside because it looked like it would rain.
I got photos with Carl, Drew and Anthony afterwards and Carl and Anthony’s autographs. Drew seemed really surprised when I asked and was even more surprised when I said he’d been amazing. Carl and Anthony stayed outside for over half an hour afterwards, though, chatting with everyone, having photos taken and signing things, they were in a wonderful mood
This video shows Carlos singing his new song "So Long".
The last date of the tour is tonight in Rome.
