I don't like the setlist at all. I like most of the songs (although not including White Lies is a huge mistake and I miss Move On U and I Say OK too), but the order feels so weird...

Also, MHTO being the encore... Sorry but LOL, using a flop ballad as the encore? Yeah, right.

+1 to everything you said! MHTO and no White Lies - does this sound like the 'these songs are perfect for arenas' kind of tour they promised. I'm sure I'll love it in person, but it's a bit shite tbh. And as for only being able to get your programme signed, its probably what I would have got signed anyway, but I really hope that Vanessa will sign my poster aswell - she's the only one who I haven't met individually and got her to sign it!!

ETA: Winter Wonderland should not have been the encore - and especially Higher in those outfits isn't right! And why isn't All Fired Up the last song? It's a bit of a downer from AFU onwards!

No White Lies :(

Hopefully it gets added later, I recall Here Standing wasn't included at all the Headlines tour dates.

Kind of an odd order for the setlist, the 1st & 3rd sections look really good. Sad white lies wasn't in there, I think it should've been included. Hopefully its added later on. Do we have a rough estimate how "full" the arena was?

I'm so sad I'm missing this tour. I'm broke and Mel C came first, so I'll have to stick to YouTube and cross my fingers for a DVD.

Gutted 'White Lies' didn't make it to the setlist, though... What were they thinking? :despise:

Am I the only one who doesn't care about White Lies? I'm more upset that One Shot isn't there.

Not sure about the setlist... and so gutted that White Lies isn't on there! :(

I'm also disappointed that the poster is the album cover. I wish there was a different one, but from that picture it seems that's the only one.

+1 it seems so strange to think that i'm surprised an album track from the 2nd album isn't included in the tour for the fourth lol

How many people attended this date? Was the arena decently full?

I like what I've seen so far, but the atmosphere with 'Notorious' was a bit too quiet in some points. It sounded weird as an opener.

And I wish they acted a bit more during their performances (especially in slow songs). When one is singing the others don't keep a serious face and don't embrace the emotion of the song. One is constantly waving and smiling, the other one is doing heart signs. I expect one of them to send texts at some points.
I know they do it to connect with the audience, but doing it too much makes them look amateurs.

The rest is good.

What the hell is Una doing? Can't she even bother to lift her arms for the 'Ego' bit?

Well, she did leave the stage during the song after, so maybe she wasn't feeling too good? :shrug:

Do we know if The Way You Watch Me had Travie on the screens? 'cos I'm starting to think the supposed video for the song could be actually some tour screen footage, not a proper video for a single release.

Haha! I actually touched my throat with Vanessa's middle8 in 'Ego', as if I was feeling her pain.

Girl should have saved her energy that night in June, since she knew a tour was scheduled. :cool: :laugh: :laugh:
