Setlist: Walk the Earth The Siege Rock the Night Hole in My Pocket Prelude (Tape) Last Look at Eden Pictures Firebox Ready or Not Turn to Dust Sign of the Times Vasastan GTO Carrie Nothin' to Ya Drum Solo Scream of Anger War of Kings Superstitious (with snippet of "Here I Go Again" by Whitesnake)
Encore: Cherokee The Final Countdown
Aside from the addition of "Pictures", they haven't really changed the setlist that much on the UK tour.
Other than that, though, I've seen many positive comments about this concert on Facebook.
I wish they had filmed that performance for release. I've been liking the enhanced light show they've pulled out on this run. Q-Ian has done another stunning job! I'm really enjoying this WTE era of Europe, probably my favourite era since the reformation. Just the artwork, the band, the set list (although it could always be tweaked!) and the light show...just a great combination I think!

Hi guys, I was at the Royal Albert Hall concert in London. It's a mythical theater, and it has well deserved its fame, it's a spectacular, beautiful place. The band was impressive, with a set of lights that made the concert an incredible show. Two days before I had seen them in Cardiff, the setlist was the same, I like it, it is very balanced between past and present. A band like EUROPE with so many albums already on the market will always leave important songs out, but I think that this set of songs is very well thought. I particularly love READY OR NOT live, it works so well! The concert lasted 1 hour and 40 minutes, well maybe a couple of songs more would be great, but if this implies harming Joey's voice for the future, I think it's fine in this way. His voice is in a very good moment, in London it sounded especially good, she must take care of it a lot, PICTURES that has a high demand, sounded incredible, and CARRIE too. I've heard CARRIE with Joey's voice much more punished than the other day that was heard powerful and clean. All together they give us a very good show, they sound great, we have to value their ability to maintain that level of quality in live, they always give 100% on each show, and that's very honest on their part. Their attitude is always the same, the generosity of Joey making each night a special moment, without stopping to empathize with the audience makes it admirable what his shows.
KING KING are great, I have loved them, his singer is wearing a kilt, which reminds me of the Axl of the 80s although his physique is not very similar hehe ... but he has a very good roll and his songs are really appetizing.
Great night. Thanks EUROPE ...

Wow, how cool is this?! I just re-watched the entire show and that "cloud number nine feeling" I had on Sunday night was back instantly. Well, in fact it hadn't really gone away, but it's back now with full force. I am glad I get to see the guys again tomorrow! It was a special night for everyone. In the beginning Joey looked a bit incredulous. As if he couldn't believe being there himself. Also one of the extra special moments for me was to hear Nothing to ya again which they delivered with an extra punch. I remember the last time I heard them play it I thought it sounded a bit worn, it was missing that extra kick, but on Sunday it was a full on punch in the gut, if you know what I mean. And the lights ... a lot's been said about them already ... they were definitely something else! That strobe effect in Firebox with the turning bars nearly blinded me, but what the heck, that was some seriously cool stuff! Although Royal Albert Hall was far away from being sold out (there was almost noone in the upper balcony and there were free seats and also the standing area wasn't sold out) the audience's response was very good, i.e. LOUD! I think we made up for the rest!
