It is the first concert since our daughter was born in last December.

Thank you very much for giving me and my wife a wonderful night!

I really love the way you played "Flowers In The Window". It's so touching (Especially when you have your own child!)

Hey! Fran, Andy, Dougie, Neil, wishing you great success in the coming UK tour in Sep/Oct!

Hope to see you again in Hong Kong soon!

What a wonderful evening! When I met Andy at Bedgebury Pinetum last year and asked the band to come to Hong Kong I never thought you guys could really make it! Thanks so much for coming!

After the Rocky entrance last year, I was anticipating some innovative entrance but there wasn't any (in fact the few people in front of me were so tall that I didn't even see the band entered the stage...) well, Rocky was just the icing on the cake...

When the band played the old songs, the crowd sang together, sometimes so loud that I couldn't hear Fran's singing! It was so much fun though. It's always good to hear some Travis classics but the new tunes were great too! J Smith was brilliant live and I loved Song to Self. Now I've 'tried' couple of songs of the new album, I couldn't wait to buy it ;-)

Thank you very much for giving us such a great time. And thanks Fran for your compliment, if it was a compliment, about us living in the 25th century :-) Hope to see you again soon.

In a ‘Kubrikan’ decorated Expo Centre that ‘segwayed ‘ us into the Theatre of Rock, tonight TRAVIS conquered Hong Kong and showered the audience in ‘Beam me up Scotty’ happiness rays.

What a Rocking time was had by all.
I’ve been smiling all day today : )
The new cuts from ‘Ode To J.Smith’ are soul drenched electric jaggy thistles that vault you Sergey Bubka-like up, up & away & into the clouds.

Thanks Dougie, Fran, Andy & Neil for a magical evening and your sweet sounds of gold.
Sweetheart Thanyalak is flying so high since we left your mellow souls…
What a Beautiful Glow. : )

Conker & Collect smiles throughout the Asian tour!

Love & Peace Travis.
Noel & Thanyalak & Gigo Lee

great show! You guys rock! I wish the show would have been longer! When will we see you again in Hong Kong?
Really love the performance of "flower in the window" and "why does it always rain on me?" those 2 have been played for millions of times in my ipod!
Some regrets that didn't see you do "My eyes", "battleships", "Happy", "The Distance", "Coming around" and most important of all "Walking in the Sun" !! Shall we listen to all those when you come back next time?

I wasn't there. I'm in the US but my friend called me during the show to let me listen. So I'm kinda there! HAHA.

Yay for playing Blue Flashing Lights.

Maybe next time I will see the boys in HK.
