Third time I've seen Travis and they sounded more incredible than ever. Fran's voice was faultless throughout and the guys totally rocked! New material much stronger live than on record. If you've never been to a Travis gig you are missing something special. The warmth they create and the way they connect with the crowd is unique (Fran actually sang 'Falling down' stood next to us in the audience)
Selfish Jean as an encore was stunning!

This was the first time I have seen Travis and I have to say that up to a point, it was a really good gig. Unfortunately, my girlfriend passed out just as the band began doing my favourite song (Closer)!! One minute she was fine, the next I'm trying to stop her from collapsing on the floor. The door staff were great though and after a short time outside, we watched/listened to the last part of the set from The Leadmill's bar area.

Excellent show though and the intimate venue certainly made it a good experience.....well, for me if not for my Girlfriend!

Last night was one of the best Travis gigs I've seen. Loved every minute of it. The band were on top form. Fantastic setlist. The new stuff sounded great live, especially Before You Were Young which I have fallen in love with. Fran coming in to the crowd for Falling Down was something special, his voice sounded amazing. The crowd were great too - really got in to it. So many sing alongs =D

The set (taken from Fran’s setlist =D) was as follows:

Chinese Blues
J Smith
Something Anything
Writing To Reach You
Long Way Down
Love Will Come Through
As You Are
Song To Self
Falling Down
U16 Girls
Good Feeling
Last Words
Before You Were Young

I Kissed A Girl
Flowers In The Window
Selfish Jean
Why Does It Always Rain On Me

All that’s left to say is THANK YOU SO MUCH to all the band and everyone involved in making it such a memorable gig x
