Yes he does. He does play live. Guess we will find out more this evening. Two years ago his New Blood Orchestra was a flop. It needed a transfusion. He stripped his songs down to bare bones and played them with a 45-piece orchestra. The songs were like cars without wheels - they went nowhere. Like liking to eat the core, rather than the apple. It was sheer Pete - but that time, being so different, he went over the cliff. His 2002 Up concert was the best arena show I've ever seen. I am guessing he will make proper amends as he runs through his smash album So in order, actually - ever the contrarian - in reverse song order. Really Pete? Reverse order. KO.
