Funny moments/mistakes by Mark and the band during the tour
« on: August 23, 2019, 07:03:55 pm »
I thought we could talk and maybe discuss the obvious mistakes/greenies made by the guys so far on stage. This is not a thread intended to criticize them, rather a thread to name some funny moments from this tour. Ok I'll start:

*Bordeaux, they are supposed to play NDT, but Ianto starts with the CBC drum intro, realising this after a while and immidiately adapts to the NDT drumming

*Corned Beef City again. Think it was either Córdoba/Lisbon.. during final verse, instead of singing "don't ask questions, when there's nothing in the bank", Mark sings:
"got to keep it going, cuz there's nothing on his bank"

*Alesund, MFN. Most of you have probably heard this fail already during the start of Mark's guitar playing. They edited this out in the soundboard recording...

Keep them coming  :lol

MK sang the final verse of Speedway twice at RAH 1.

In Antwerp they played BIA. Something went wrong with his guitar when he wanted to start the song after the intro. MK looked to the side at someone from his crew. After a few seconds his guitarsound came up just at the time i believe the band was starting the intro again. Perhaps it is on youtube somewhere….

Funny that something like that could happen in a world where even amps are now digital!

There have been a couple of power cuts in Spain:

Badalona 2001 during Bonaparte and the audience start to sing along!

Zaragoza 2005 during Rudiger and no, it wasn't me who flicked the switch!   ;D
