It’s a nice incentive for sure but ‘time waits for no man’ (Geoffrey Chaucer / Reginald Iolanthe Perrin)

The answer of Guy on a another tour question.

Jep it really is over and i really have a hard time accepting this. But i know it is probably the best.

Exactly, MK is perfectly capable of playing kind of Boothbay gigs, or like the middle part of his tours, specially the last one. MK has a long catalogue of songs that doesn't need him playing guitar like he used to play, the kind of rock ones, he could play a catalogue of more than two hours like that. And most of us will be happy with it. Most don't. Better for the ones that would be able to buy tickets with less competition!
This is an interesting idea and I have also supported something like this before. But I also think at some point you would have to throw in a rocker or a more uptempo song. It's not possible to do 2 hours of slow acoustic songs. Is he willing to play something like Je Suis Desole, Boom Like That or Who's Your Baby Now?

In memory  :)

Boothbay Harbor's Opera House on 20th September 2006

Done with Boneparte
Sailing to Philadelphia
Donegan's gone
Rüdiger
The trawlerman's song
Romeo and Juliet
Song for Sonny Liston
Marbletown
Devil baby
Baloney again
Postcards from Paraguay
Whoop de doo
All that matters
A place where we used to live
Wild theme
If this is goodbye

I know the way I can see by the moonlight
Clear as the day
Now come on woman, come follow me home

I'm sorry, but could he create a duller setlist?! This was in 2006, when he was 55 and still could play guitar all right. I understand he probably tailored the setlist to the specific audience and venue, but this is just incredible.

How I love this concert! Even without a drummer all of the songs sound absolutely great. Never get tired of watching it. Wish Mark would do something like this again.
This is all the heaven we've got right here where we are in our shangri-la.

Think you've missed the point, it was effectively an "unplugged" set so it was bound to be more subdued. In fact, he almost ended up doing it completely solo which would have been great.

Another option for MK if he wanted to play live would be some NHB gigs, no pressure and others can also take plenty of solos.

I'm pretty sure that the NHB days are over, although Steve Phillips still plays every Tuesday evening with the Rough Diamonds at The Grosvenor Hotel in Robin Hood's Bay.   The last info I can find about Brendan Croker is his gig in 2020:

Have to say I'm pretty gutted by this. I saw DS in 1985 - my first ever live gig, aged 14. I have never seen MK and only recently got into his solo stuff, so was hoping to see him before he retired from live shows.
