UPDATED: Some Hibernian Supporters Are Okay

Great show from Craig and Charlie Reid at the Tin Angel in Philadelphia last night.

Both were in good voice, the set list was surprisingly political (in their own polite way), and the company was top notch.

If you’ve never seen the Proclaimers live you need to try harder- not to be missed.

Here are the rest of the dates for this tour.

And, “yes,” I wore my County top to the show!

A few of you have emailed/tweeted to ask about the set list from Monday night, I’ll do my best- except for the closing song they are not in order:

  • Beautiful Truth
  • Letter From America*
  • Misty Blue
  • Role Model
  • D.I.Y.
  • Throw The ‘R’ Away*
  • Over And Done With
  • Sunshine on Leith*
  • Then I Met You
  • Born Innocent
  • Spinning Around In The Air
  • There’s
  • Cap In Hand*
  • In Recognition*
  • Let’s Get Married
  • I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)

I’m pretty sure that’s all of them.  

They told a nice little story about meeting Margaret Thatcher as teenagers and being inspired to write  “Letter From America.”  

They made a nice pitch for Scottish independence (woo!) leading into “Cap In Hand.”  

There was some nice, brotherly humor, during “Over And Done With.”  As I said above, there was a bit more of a political angle to the show (see these “*” songs) than usual- but a much appreciated one.

On a selfish note I would have loved to hear “The First Attack” and “The Joyful Kilmarnock Blues,” maybe one of their more obscure songs (“A Train Went Past The Window”) and maybe one of the great covers they’ve done- “Twenty Flight Rock,” “The Long Black Veil,” “King of the Road,” etc.- but that’s really just nitpicking!

I should probably have added “Scotland’s Story” to that list, but honestly, I had no desire to be a sobbing mess in front of my friends, so it’s just as well that they stayed away from it.

    All right…I can’t resist: To see the show, Did you walk 500 miles?

    (please don’t ban me from the site…)

    That’s going to have to go on your “permanent record.”
