Release The Pressure Tour Part 16: Edinburgh - Citrus Club - 1st May 2010
The full set was as follows:
Marching On, Where Were You Hiding When The Storm Broke, Direct Action, Absolute Reality, Alarm Calling, Superchannel, Rescue Me, Drunk & Disorderly, Release The Pressure, 45 RPM, Blaze of Glory, Strength, Walk Forever By My Side, Spirit of 76, 68 Guns.
The encores were:
In A Big Country, One Guitar, Love Hope & Strength – Blaze of Glory (reprise) – Love Hope & Strength.
One really special moment of the show was when Mike asked on behalf of Carole Johnston if her boyfriend David Wallace would marry her. Carole had contacted Jules Peters to ask if this would be something Mike could do. Of course Mr Peters agreed and prior to singing 'Walk Forever By My Side' did the deed. The good news is that David said yes. Just another reminder of how music brings people together.
