There were two show that night.

Myself and a friend leaked the bootlegs for both, so you can hear it for yourself if you look hard enough.

Personally I don't think flying over to Aus, then to NZ, then to Perth, then to Oakland, all in the space of 2 weeks, did him any good. That was too much

I haven't found it either sad my cousin attended both shows said they were amazing, the second one was shorter than the first which is understandable. Out of all of them in Australia he talked the most between songs, especially about Vanity and alot of us would like to hear it for ourselves. The media also reported about what happened, and there were a few clip on YT but were taken down.

No it didn't help things confused but then again he had his own private jet.

During the show he mentioned he had trouble focussing. To my experience the only thing I noticed was the instrumental parts he uses to bridge songs together where maybe it bit longer and had a dreamy mood. His playing did not sound unfocussed at all.

One thing that stood out for me were the screams in "The Beautiful Ones" because they expressed pain in a way I haven't heard before in any of his live performances.

I listened to the Paisley shows before visiting this show, but there were some parts I didn't recognize, and I felt like hearing some music I had never heard before which was very exciting.

I was breathtaken and could not speak for a few minutes after the show was over, and I'm sure I wasn't the only one.

was at the 10pm show.

The night was incredilbly special to me, obviously it became MORE special since.

Amazing night. His dad story / Vanity mentions were emotional.

The part that has stayed in my mind most was was his slight hesitation walking out and stepping to the piano. For a second there he just looked like he didn't want to do it, couldn't do it, all the while having that inner dialogue with himself saying that he should. Not something I'd ever seen before, where for a moment he was a man not a performer, and it was both heartbreaking and beautiful to witness.
