Je parle presque aussi bien l'anglais que Fran l'allemand, alors, vous devrez vous contenter dufrançais.

Merci pour ce concert.
J'attendais ça depuis plus de quatre ans.

J'aime. J'aime. J'aime. J'aime. J'aime.

Continuez, je vous aime.

Au prochain concert...

Great gig, cheers boys. The "Humty Dumpty Love Song" may really be one of the best songs ever. Hope you enjoyed your stay in Switzerland and wish to see you here very soon.

What an amazing show! Hearing "The beautiful occupation" again was a nice surprise. Thinking about Neil wearing a bra around his neck still makes me laugh! (I'll post a video of that one later). The whole set was wonderful but it went way too fast!

I was just a bit annoyed by the lack of audience participation. The crowd went completely wild during the previous concerts but while you were on they were just shy. Towards the end, Fran, you said you were worried that people might be embarrassed because they were "unresponsive" when you talked about sex. Unresponsive was the word - I got the feeling that they were unresponsive most of the time.

I was annoyed because it felt like you guys were giving a lot as always but you weren't getting much back. I did have a brilliant time though and I can't wait to see you all again soon. It was worth waiting for over 12 hours, getting crushed, kicked and elbowed in the ribs! I'd take the trip again anytime! (I felt a bit relieved though that you didn't ask the crowd to let out their inner viking or to pogo during "Why does it always rain on me?" - I'm not sure I could have handled any more pushing and crushing at such a late hour!!)

Thanks a million for another excellent show! Special thanks to Dougie for all the smiles and for posing for me on numerous occasions :) You guys rock! I love you all!

ps: I almost forgot - my mum had a great time as well. She's usually in bed by 9pm and there's no other band that could keep her up until 1 am! She left the festival area with stars in her eyes :)

The show was just beautiful! Hey, and guess who threw the bra? Me! My girlfriend was really worried she would not reach the stage so she asked me to do it. I was really hacked off that the bra landed behind a monitor where no one saw it at first. So you might guess how relieved I was when Neil finally noticed it! That day was truly special because me and my girlfriend were a couple for exact half a year! It's just magical to have Travis playing at such a special date and it was like they were playing just for us.

Yes it was so so so great!!! they were all perfect and play with a lot of energy!! I totally agree with lucile when she said that the crowd were...not very entousiatic... it's a pity! However I hope the band had pleasure making the concert...

Hey guys,
I just wanted to say I absolutely loved your Gampel gig. I could have listened to you all night long. You were fantastic!

I wish I could say the same about the crowd; the people were quite unresponsive, which was a pity as you seemed to enjoy yourself a lot, gave us all you had, and we should have shown more enthusiasm.
I must say I was also a wee bit disappointed that you didnae ask everyone to jump during "Why does it always rain on me", like you did on your Barrowlands gig.
But apart from that, everything was perfect. I don't think I can ever tire of seeing you on stage.
I look forward to seeing you again live.
