Speaking little, except to thank the packed crowd for their support, the band played the likes of [b]'Walking In The Winter'[/b], [b]'Green Is The Colour'[/b] and the title track.

They also included several crowd favourites like [b]'Simon Diamond'[/b], [b]'Pass It On'[/b] and [b]'Dreaming Of You'[/b].
