For some reason it actually sounded a smoother performance on that video.  It is reassuring, however by the time this album is released and the tour starts it will be Mark celebrating his 80th birthday!  :lol

Thanks for posting these links BTW.

I don't get why the video is black and white...

One thing is still certain. Playtime Deluxe would be fantastic on a tour setlist.

I must admit it hits me hard to see him in this clip... since 2015, he really has changed and not in the best way.. so old.. so "chubby" and so strange behaving...
I hate those glasses that totally not fit... totally another man than the guy I used to adore when live on stage.. Sorry to say...
His whole  behaviour is very hard to watch for me... even his speaking voice I love so much has turned into a mumbling that is hard to understand.. In the best case I hope he was drunk that night.. In the worst case I honestly fear something severe is wrong with him..

I won't kill you, LE, but I tend to agree with you.   MK looks a lot older than the last time I saw him in front of me in 2015.   The suit and the spectacles don't help and he seems to have put on a lot of weight.   I think he looks much younger in denims and more casual clothes.  He looked better in the pictures with John Illsley at the Big Bike Charity Hike on 20th April, although it looked like something from "Last of the Summer Wine"!    ;D

I do like Playtime Deluxe a lot, though, and hope to hear it played live next tour!    :)

Mark does look beyond his years and wearing these glasses certainly doesn't help.  He has always mumbled though as we all know and he doesn't feel comfortable talking to the audience.  On an occasion such as this maybe he had been celebrating and had a drink, who knows.  He usually puts on a little weight when he isn't touring but that would only be natural for a man of his age.  We know he likes fine wine and he has the tell-tale sign of rosy cheeks these days.

I recall the Glasgow gig back in 2013 and it had been John's birthday the night before and he commented they had been drinking the night before, rather making fun of it.  However I noticed for the first time his hand shaking like hell on the R&J solo.  Didn't think much of it at the time.

That's exactly the reason why I think the more time he rest nowadays, the better, because he looks fresh anyway after holidays and stuff.
Seriously, if he will hit another "big tour" he will need not 2-3 days off between shows, but a whole week. Let's see him after this big pause!

Maybe so, but factor-in the fact that all the time he has years holidays he is getting older...
