Really nice set of songs. Nice to see 66 and uptown again added to the set (ooh ooh, yeah yeah yeah). Rockin' tunes.

Come back to NY/NJ/PA sometime soon.

I forgot to say that during "The Killer" Greg sang a couple of lines of "Voglio una pelle splendida", a song by Afterhours (their leader Manuel Agnelli recently joined the Twilight Singers). It was beautiful!

Daniele Says:

"Faded" was introduced by the initial verses of "Beth" by Kiss :)

Andrea's Birthday.. no GIORGIO'S ;)

Posted: December 14, 2004 04:38 AM

Nicola Says:

"Giorgio's birthday" was the name of the song in Greg's setlist... It's strange because saturday was Bobby's birthday. Maybe that was a sort of joke between them.

Me Says:

Has Lanegan not been singing at these shows? the story (direct from one of Mark's band members) was that he would be onboard for this whole mini-tour - and I've seen no mention of him.

Posted: December 14, 2004 11:15 AM

Riccardo Says:

no, any sign of Lanegan on this minitour...

mississippi queen Says:

Any sightings of Signore Michaelangelo Neopolitino
on board? Some people say he resembles Joe Perry...sounds like a good time out yonder in the old country. 1.5 weeks till X-mas. Be safe and enjoy!

Is Greg Italian/American or Greek/American in origin?

Posted: December 15, 2004 08:08 AM

Federica Says:

His mom is (or was )Irish and his is (or was)dad Greek. I believed he was half Italian for many years, as Dulli is also an Italian surname, from the south... This is what I read on an old Melody Maker article, which should be also on the net. :)

agnese Says:

still disoriented after the gigs in Rome and Milan.not many words to express my adoration...Greg, as you said once during an interview in athens talking about Prince...I wish you could play every night, because I would watch you every night!
thank you and let the guys in athens take care of you on friday.

tgrace Says:

any sign of the dvd bootleg on the tour? anyone know when it'll be offered through the website?!

Posted: December 15, 2004 10:23 AM

Mike Says:

I've heard Greg say that Dulli is French.

Federica Says:

Gosh, will we ever know?

The Twilight Singers play new song called (think) Poses in Barcelona gig.

Posted: December 16, 2004 02:47 AM

Federica Says:

It was Roses, by Outkast. :)

Joan Says:

Sorry Guys, I have a terrible memory for set lists. I hope someone else can post all of it in the right order. But I can tell you Dulli played on piano an interesting and nearly unrecognizable version of "Dancing Queen" (ABBA)!. I don't know if this has happened in other gigs. They also played a small part of "gentlemen" which was sung with the audience, and "Twilight Kid" (which I don't see in your posts").

Amazing gig!. Complete sold out. Fantastic audience. Greg said "Barcelona, it's been too long..." Later he said he hopes he will come back soon. I have my fingers crossed!.

Started the show by simply saying ¨Mi Noche, Su Noche, Esta Noche¨, before kicking into it. Incredible show, the crowd went crazy for the Afghan Whigs material, I don´t know when he was in Barcelona last, but he was properly greeted. Called Outkast´s Roses a ¨Negro Spiritual¨. Only after getting a chance to see the She Love You songs live do you truly realize how effortlessly Dulli has not only adapted them, but seamlessly slipped them into his setlist.

Ups! my excuses, it's true... it was roses from Outkast. The last time that Mr. Dulli played in Barcelona was in 1994 with the Whigs.

Athens show
I only remember last nights' concert as a dream. It is difficult to describe in words the magic, the vibe, the atmosphere that brought into us. The songlist was kind of similar to the others -hope that someone kept a record of it cause I didn't. An interesting thing was playing faded,with lyrics from summertime on the first verse....Amazing!!!At the end inttoducing the band he presented himself with origins from Kalamata-Peloponese, and I this is not the first time listening to Greg saying that. The very last thing that he did, after two encores, he jumped on the crowd who went nuts!!! This was the very best show I've ever seen and I think that I'll fly to Thessaloniki tonight to see them again. I missed the whigs show five years ago and still regret it!

Guten morgan! There's a Twilight Singers place on that has a music player with 4 of their songs you can stream. Just go to, go 2 music, SELECT band name, TYPE IN twilight's pretty cool and has a link that goes directly to the official TS site. I heard there were more classical ruins in Turkey than in Greece...but I know much of Turkey was Greece in the past. Ephesus.
