Speaking back then he said the Derry show at Ebrington had been “exciting as hell”.

“It was the kind of show where we just leave everything on the stage, it was perfect,” he said, adding:

“The Irish audiences seem to be a little more enthusiastic. They are a bit more knowledgeable when it comes to the songs which is great. Perfect audience; perfect crowd.”
