Each night, the various line ups play a classic set list from their era, and at the end of the week, we get to vote who we'd like to see Andrew go on tour with? Then again, perhaps to democratic for Von. So how about the various incarnation...

There is a lot these days about mental health and dealing with depression...

That was a great show! On this tour, I did Glasgow, Belfast and then back home to Dublin for this. There was soo much smoke and I love the fog! If I remember correctly, they set of the fire alarms?

Re:filming. The Glasgow gig was basically a warm up gig for the tour, perhaps the band didn't want footage of possible forgotten verses , bum notes and sound problems circulating.
