tell me about it !

That little pic pre-rehearsal on the O/S has got me thinking that they HAVE to film it .... can't see this kind of thing happening too often and we need it recorded visually as well!

Would be a lovely treat if it was filmed and shown over Christmas for us fans.

Good luck to JoePSB ... representing the community ... :clap:

Excellent photo of Johnny Marr, and very good interview with him on Jo Whiley (although he said Behaviour was their 2nd album, tut tut johnny!)

I'm presuming/praying, that this concert on radio 2 will be on iplayer?

I'm out tonight, but will listen to it on friday, and not log on here, hence avoid you lot rabbiting on about the set list

The BBC concert
Last night's concert with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra was a wonderful experience for us. The orchestra played with such luxurious power and conviction, conducted by Dominic Wheeler, and the Manchester Chamber Choir brought ethereal beauty to, for instance, "Miracles" and "He dreamed of machines" (from our new piece about Alan Turing). To hear Johnny Marr playing the guitar riff from "This must be the place I waited years to leave" was a real thrill so many years after he played on the original record; his acoustic guitar playing on "Breathing space" was gorgeous. Other highlights for me were performing live for the first time "It couldn't happen here", "The survivors" and "For all of us". Sven Helbig's orchestral arrangements were both magnificent and subtle: "New York City boy" was returned to Broadway; "He dreamed of machines" had a pale beauty. Many thanks to everyone at the BBC, Parlophone and our management and tour personnel for making it happen, to Pete Gleadall for programming and to Jo Whiley for introducing it. The concert can be heard on BBC Radio 2 tonight at 8 pm. I hope you enjoy it. Neil x (Photograph by Kate Southall/BBC.)

From the looks of it this will be better than Concrete, bigger orchestra, choir, Jonny Marr, more interesting setlist. Can't wait to listen this afternoon!

It's possible, but a lot hinges on the quality if the recorded vocals.
And tryin' to figure out what happened to 'Germaine Propaine'
"He couldn't have fell off that hard" Ain't no way
"What happened to the way you was rappin' when you was scandalous
That Canibus turned into a television evangelist"
Plus he raps with his regular voice [BOOSH! BOOSH!]
[BOOSH! BOOSH!] (What was that?) Pet Shop Boys
