Chicago Abbey Pub - September 3, 2009  Reply with quote  

Anohter solid show by the Flowers at the Abbey Pub in Chicago on Thursday.

I think this was their third or fourth visit to the Abbey. The house was about 80% capacity with alot of Flower fans.

They played for about 2 hours. Liam stayed behind the keyboard most of the night pounding on the keys. The crowd was a little chatty at times but Liam played maestro and got them quiet.
Liam told a story or joke in Gaelic them seemed funny.

The lads rocked and it was a rare pleasure to hear "It Will Be Easier in the Morning". Just awesome.

Here is the rough setlist from what I can remember(order might be a little off).

Your Soul
Isnít it Amazing
Feel Like Living
You Can Love Me Now
Itíll Be Easier in the Morning
Your Love Goes On
Your Nature
I Can See Clearly Now
Sweet Marie
Forever More
Iím Sorry
Don't Go
Encore
Sows
Si Di Mo
Feet on the Ground

I taped a few songs for my wife to enjoy since she could not make it to the show. I uploaded "I Can See Clearly Now" to You Tube. Enjoy.

Thanks for the great review db and I enjoyed the vid too. Such a small venue, just the way I like it.

Thanks db for the review and a great setlist Very Happy

Will check out the vids later, would have loved to have made that gig but it was not possible.

I have seen some pics on Facebook of the gig and read another review which was not very complimentary of the gig Shocked

I suppose everybody is entitled to an opinion.......thats what life is all about Razz

keep well db
