But I think there's a difference between a performer and an entertainer, and where a performer would try to do the spirit of a song justice, Myles is sometimes more focused on entertaining the crowd. That's not even a bad thing per se, but it's a clear shift from a few years ago.

That's fair enough, man :cheers

I have always attributed this to some degree to the fact that Myles, IMO, is still kind of nervous in front of a crowd. He's admitted as much and it totally goes with his humble and unassuming nature. It's harder to totally lose oneself in the moment when you remember there are a few hundred people staring at you. I don't think he has that rock star ego that allows him to disassociate himself from the setting. I appreciate how honest and interpersonal and aware he is with the crowd there, and I think the little chuckles when he misses a note or skips a line and all the little asides and comments between songs are him acknowledging the reality of the crowd in front of him. I think he's sometimes too aware of that to get completely lost in the moment. It's different for him on songs like Blackbird or Watch Over You that are so personal and that he's done with AB a few hundred times, but this tour is a totally different ballgame for him right now.
Another photobucket casualty... :(

He was having trouble with his guitar staying in tune and having a laugh about it. Big fucking deal. Get over it.

Damn the crowd was REALLY into this one, Myles seemed very pleasantly surprised by it. One of my favorite AB songs period, always wondered why they never released it as a single during the Fortress cycle. Thought it would have been big for the band and gotten a lot of airplay

It's so cool to see him unearth those old MF4 songs.
The people in the audience don't seem to realize how lucky they are.

Indeed. Who knows, this song could have made them huge.
Sometimes, you're too close to your songs, and you can't tell tell which ones will be well received.
But after this performance, I'm pretty sure Myles will try and convince the band to play it more often.

I wonder whose "and co.?" Myles, with a backing band playing a full set, will be co-headlining the Steelhouse Festival with Glenn Hughes whose playing a primarily a Deep Purple set.

TBH every song went down well. The crowd were superb in Glasgow! Myles looked well impressed. Great setlist although I would’ve loved White Flag. Personal favourite of mine

If the fans are responding well to the song. Maybe the song will be a regular on the next AB tour.

Was watching that last night and was similarly bemused :lol

Either someone behind the camera was doing something weird or Myles is hinting that he's not a fan of his own lyrics. Any folk that went to the Glasgow gig shed any light?

Regarding earlier comments. Ya'll are a tough crowd. I think the laughing and joking makes it all seem so much more intimate. Like friends hanging around a camp fire, while one of those friends performs some great music. Really hope I can make it to one of these shows.

During another show, he said he finds the Mars Hotel lyrics cringe worthy. Mostly the "tried to pay for all the things" line. He wishes he spent more time on them in hindsight and is surprised how relatively popular it is.

Thanks!

The answer to his surprise is that the music and melody is utterly dreamy.

Great performance of Love Can Only Heal, with a little Sweet Home Alabama intro and a nice added surprise at the end!

I really hope Myles releases a live album from this tour. A lot of these stripped arrangements and performances actually sound better than what's on the album, especially in those official videos. I think he may have done the songs a bit of a disservice in regards to the overproduction on the album itself, much as I love it.

The Last Hero is overproduced in my humble opinion, so I know exactly what you mean. It can take away from the whole sound.
