Is it really a case of his management team, haven't booked any shows in Europe yet?...I can't believe he'll only do two shows..he can/could spend the day with the boys and then jump on a plane..play a show in Europe, get back on the plane and fly home...that's what he does anyway..let's see..

I doubt he'll keep only 2 concerts in his schedule for the next year. More dates will be added I think.

Just watched his performance at the Colosseum in Rome at the Andrea Bocelli concert...

He really, really should retire "Tiny Dancer" - he can't sing it anymore, he's just shouting. Also he made a pretty bad mistake on the piano (in "Your Song"!), something I've never heard him do before. Hope he just had an off night and will sound better when the tour starts up again.

Mackay, Australia on September 22:

Haven't seen the set list yet but the Mackay Daily Mercury is raving about the show in their concert review and photo collection.

Brisbane Times also gave a good review and mentioned a number of songs (all the usual ones) and that he played a couple of songs from his latest album. Will be interesting to see the set list, but I suspect there will be no surprises...

The Mackay, Australia set list that I saw has all the familiar songs but the list I saw showed that EJ and the band ended with quiet songs rather than the up-tempo rocking ones.

The set list (not confirmed) had the show end (before encores) with:

* "Daniel"
* "Tiny Dancer"
* "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word"

Encores:
* "Your Song"
* "Candle in the Wind"

"Take Me To The Pilot" was listed as the 4th song. "Have Mercy on the Criminal" remains and the two WONDERFUL CRAZY NIGHT songs remain.

No new additions to this unconfirmed set list.
