We did some sightseeing in Dublin. We've been to the river Liffey, St. Stephens Green, Dublin Castle, the Olympia Theatre and strolled around Temple Bar. I wrote some post cards to my friends who didn't want to attend - just to let them know what they've missed :p
Around noon we headed back to the hotel for a little nap since the night would be exhausting ;) At 4 p.m. we met up with Christian again at Temple Bar for an early dinner. Then we headed to the theatre already, since Mark told us if we would be early there's a chance to get one of the 100 wristbands for a reserved area in front of the stage.
Finally the doors got open and we headed into the theatre. We were lucky and got our wristbands. So we were able to leave our places for catching up some beer or red wine or just go to the toilet. We stood in 2nd row in the middle of the stage so we had a good view on all the band members.
The support act (I forgot her name :o since she didn't play my taste of music) entered the stage and played for about 30 minutes. I looked around the old theatre a bit. It was amazingly beautiful. This was truely a nice place for this. It isn't huge - I guess for about 1,000 people but it had a special charm. I spotted Mike Mills (the bass player) at the balcony listening to the music.
Then, after a 30 minutes break, the band came on stage. Mike Mills had a megaphone and shouted "This is not a show" and the party began. The first song was "Horse to water" one of the new songs, followed by another new song "Starring down the barrel of the middle distance". The people were thrilled by the new songs and we all were in great mood.
The setlist was (if anyone is interested:)
- Horse To Water
- Starring Down The Barrel Of The Middle Distance
- Auctioneer (Another Engine)
- Mr. Richards
- Feeling Gravitys Pull
- On The Fly
- Driver 8
- Man-Sized Wreath
- Supernatural Superserious
- Until The Day Is Done
- Living Well Is The Best Revenge
- Second Guessing
- Little America
- I'm Gonna DJ
Exhausted and happy we left the theatre to head into the pub next door after the gig.
Around 1.30 a.m. we headed back to the hotel since I had to get up early for our flight back home.
