I wonder if there'll be a min Irish tour somewhere in between? Possibly around Christmas?

Here's hoping anyway. I'm seeing them again in Boston in Sept which will be my 3rd time in a row to see them in America so I'd love to see them in Ireland again.

Going to Vicar St. Bringing my 11 year old daughter. She's seen them before at a mini gig in HMV but this time, i'm treating her to a proper Bellexian gig. :D

(Just hoping here Vicar st won't turn us down because of her age...)
And by the time we stand on our own two feet, we're standing there alone.

I hadn't seen the band in 2 years (not that I didn't want to, but such is life!), so I drove up to Ann Arbor a couple nights ago and am very glad I did. Here's the setlist:
Velcro
Bad Skin Day
How Your Heart is Wired
Rocky
Next To You
Alphabet Soup
Safer than Love (one of the highlights)
Offshore
Eve
Flame
Great Defector
Amsterdam Says

encore:
Motorcades (new song about a girl who cries at motorcades)
request - I'll See Your Heart
She's a Mystery to Me

4 songs I'd never heard live before, and I took my cousin who is now a fan :)
Told the guys afterwards that they need to come to Cleveland next time!

They played Motorcades in Boston last week too, I really liked it. The only other song they played somewhat out of the ordinary was In Every Sunflower which was beautiful.

A shoutout has to go to Duke Special who won himself a lot of fans on the night it would seem. I haven't bought any album since his third and had pretty much forgotten he existed but he came out and played a song. Then he stood up and introduced himself, told a great story about his next song, played a couple, explained another song, gave out songsheets for people to sing along (with all of his information for people to take home so they wouldn't forget about him) and he was very engaging between sets and again after the Bellies left the stage. The audience seemed to eat it all up.

I missed the beginning of Duke Special's set, but I was impressed with how he got people to sing along. I've never had a sheet with lyrics passed out at a show - nice touch! He also broke a piano string, which must be really hard to do? All of a sudden we heard a loud zinging sound, and it hit one of the stools on the other side of the piano.

Nashville Playlist:

Bad Skin Day
Velcro
How Your Heart Is Wired
Rocky Took A Lover
Built To Last
Next To You
Alphabet Soup (with extended "what's that you're saying to me/tomato-coated spaghetti" audience sing-along)
Offshore
Eve, The Apple of My Eye
Flame (FLAME!)
The Great Defector
Starlings Over Brighton Pier (new tune)
74 Swans
Mystery Girl (with Duke Special)

It was a cozy venue. I was less than 15 feet from the stage. The whole show was absolutely gorgeous, "Rocky" in particular. I think we were afraid to breathe and break the mood. I posted a clip to YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HnWJZNqVYEU

If y'all are interested, here are my photos from the show: http://danarsphotos.shutterfly.com/pictures/1125

No piano at the gig? That's a shame. It was very cool to have a piano at the gig in Boston.

More importantly, how was the new song?

Looks like we got a similar enough setlist in Manchester. Might have missed 1 or 2 as it doesn't seem like a 90min set.

Bad skin day
Velcro
How your heart is wired
Next to you
Alphabet Soup
Motorcade
Eve
Built to Last
First born for a song
Flame
-----------------
Rocky took a lover
Mystery Girl

Here is photo of Dave's piano ... A gorgeous battered old thing with no front on it, so the Action was exposed. I can't state how much of a difference this made, compared to his usual keyboard. For me the keyboard never quite sounded right.

Real bonus of these UK dates is the size of the venue ... Its like an Irish tour circa 2001. Got pretty close to the stage & for the opening song, I could hear Dave's strings scraping on the frets. Nice.

So, how are we all getting on with the current tour ?

I got to the Manchester gig. Lovely time was had by all.
