Hath's Circle Tour Blog will have all the videos from this show in due course. I'll also be doing video posts for the last couple of shows that I haven't covered yet.

Audio from the first half hour of the Lisbon concert (up to Get Ready) was streamed live on the radio. If you missed it, you can (hopefully) listen to it here.


  1. Only can say... was amazing!
    It was almost 3 hours without a break

    I was at the Golden Circle, and boy, these set list was a huge surprise cause it missed songs like Bed of Roses or Lay Your Hands on me just to quote a few.

    I was thrilled to hear again "Get Ready" and very pleased to hear songs that i had never heard live like "It's hard letting you go"

    They went out with a bang

    5 stars!

  2. I was at the Lisbon show - Golden Circle. I was actually disappointed with the set list, but hey, you can't please everybody. I expected/hoped for: Lay Your Hands, Dry County, Something to Believe in, Love's The Only Rule, No Apologies and What Do You Got (which was played so much on the radio over here). Least likely to be played but I still hoped: Bells of Freedom (acoustic) and my favourite from The Circle - Brokenpromiseland.
    I actually dislike Captain Crash and tired with songs like I'll Sleep When I'm Dead.
    It took me a few days to settle (and to get some sleep) after Lisbon's concert thanks to excitement. I'm now looking forward to an introspective solo album from Jon.

  3. "I'm now looking forward to an introspective solo album from Jon."

    Wont happen.

  4. António - Glad you had a great time!

    Sue - Lots of people dislike Captain Crash so you're not alone there. Some of those others you mentioned would have been nice but I'm pretty pumped with what they did do.

    Anonymous - Love Jon's solo stuff but unfortunately I don't see it happening either.


Thanks for giving me your time.
