It's Aarhus OR Århus, not Åarhus.

Either way, I'm going to this concert and will try to get the set list down :-)


This path seems the blackest but I
guess it's the soonest.

Never noticed that. Belfast Ireland. That's dangerous talk.

The set list:

Thirteen (Glenn Danzig cover)
Up to My Neck In You
Third and Seneca
Like the River
Moorestown
Tiny Cities Made of Ashes
New humorous song about his current tour
Katy Song
River
Half Moon Bay
New song/cover
Heron Blue
Get Along Home Cindy
Ålesund
Carry Me, Ohio

Church of the Pines
Mistress

A very different show from when I've seen him on his recent show. Very talkative, more or less chatting with the crow in between each song. For instance, I have never personally seen Mark asking for song request, which he actually did three times (even though he didn't pick any of them) and flirting with the female crowd. He played a new humorous song (mainly) about Finland (his previous show that night), which had some lines like "Finland may be cold as ice, but the waitresses sure look nice". The song also mentioned his trip to Aarhus and some other things I can't recall. Another song that I couldn't identify was played.
There were some people in the crowd who came all the way from Norway, Germany and also Russia, I think. Mark seemed very grateful for that.
He talked about the recent shootings in Norway and how shocking to him it was (hence Marks very personal relationship with Norway). So he decided to play Ålesund as a tribute for Norway and the norwegians at the show.

The sound was a tad too low and could have been slightly louder.
Concerning his actual performance, the lazy, almost whispering vocals were a little too much. That combined with the sound being extremely low gave a little underwhelming performance at times. The sound was much better when I saw him in Copenhagen earlier this year.
Mark seemed surprisingly outgoing and chatty, but also pretty tired. Which he also mentioned himself.

High lights for me were Third and Seneca, Up to My Neck In You, Ålesund and Mistress.

The review from Web sums it all up very well. The next lines in the Finland song were "So many trees, John Denver would be pleased" - a very humourous text but of course delivered in the usual grave Koz way.

Mark also complained about the absence of females in the crowd - a problem he didn't have 15 years ago - and that many of the men were wearing shorts.

Mark, please take Jerry and Phil with you the next time :-)
