After meeting them a few hours before at the HMV instore signing I was already buzzing waiting for them to take to the stage at the Carling Academy! I've seen Travis 5 times now and tonight was truely one of the best gigs I've seen them do!

The atmosphere was electric tonight and the setlist was a career spanning one with the inclusion of 'Falling Down', 'Tied To The 90's' and 'More Than Us' from 'Good Feeling' (oh and not forgetting 'Good Feeling' with the classic Klaus chant hehe). The mix of old stuff and new stuff was fantastic.

One of the highlights for me was when everyone sang along during the chorus of 'Closer'. I got goosebumps and you could tell Fran was made up everyone was having a great time. 'Love Will Come Through' was another highlight when Fran asked the crowd to sway from side to side for the whole song!

The guys were on top form tonight and Fran's voice was sounding great all night. The Katy Perry cover was fantastic aswell. The new songs are really strong live and sit along side the old stuff really nicely.

Thanks for a great night Fran, Dougie, Andy and Neil I'm still buzzing the morning after the night before :-D

Can somebody give me some details on the video clip that they played at the start. Couldn't quite hear the entire monologue because of the crowd noise etc., but it was a very powerful, dramatic way to start the gig.

Any info would be great....
