Me neither, Avalon_Eyes.

There were rumours that BF's set might not exceed 45 mins, so I checked with one of his team at the Royal Albert Hall and was told that his Hyde Park set would probably last an hour.

I'm guessing that half the problem may be that Streisand's headline set may itself be quite short (maybe 75 mins or so), so the "undercard" can't be afforded similar stage time. I've no major interest in Streisand and none at all in Kris K., so I failed to convince myself that £90-£100 for an hour of BF made sufficient sense.

I'm all for quality over quantity; BF's Proms In The Park set a handful of years ago was a fun 45 mins, but then those tickets probably cost no more than £40.

I hope those who are in Hyde Park today have fun, but I'd probably have opted for BF's music & wine festival appearance in Portugal in September, if I'd been free.

I've not read or seen any reviews, but by accoubnts on fb of those that were there...it was amazing. More than one had said that Bryan was so good, they didn't bother to stick around for Streisand's set. This may have been the set list (found online). It makes sense because he was the support act, not the headliner.

The Main Thing
Out of the Blue
Slave to Love
Don't Stop the Dance
Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues
Oh Yeah
Can't Let Go
If There is Something
Dance Away
More Than This
Avalon
Love Is The Drug
Virginia Plain
Jealous Guy
Let's Stick Together

Ferry looked great in the pictures I saw, and good for him for taking this slot on.

I guess the reviewer didn’t know the difference between You Can Dance and Dance Away. Waiting for the US setlist. No doubt The Main Thing will be the opener.

Cher AzArtist,

W2 loved TRAH set and hope our US brethren get to enjoy it too.

If you are going, listen out for some interesting arrangements. ‘Boys & Girls’ in particular is a masterpiece.

Salutations,

Windswept
