Texas at Bristol's Colston Hall

Tonight I went to see Texas at the Colston Hall in Bristol, on their first proper tour for years.

It was exactly what was required from a band in their position: a mix of songs from the new album, with old favourites from the past. A solid set, without any messing around or gimmicks. 

Of course, there were also omissions; nothing from Mothers Heaven (although it is a lower key album) nor, perhaps more surprisingly, The Red Book - Getaway would have fitted in well, for example. And, of course, there was nothing from Careful What You Wish For... 

The Support Act was Girl Called Johnny, who you can find on You Tube here. A nice touch was their singer, Karen Overton, joining Sharleen for the encore to sing The Conversation on which she has a writing credit.

Anyway, here are my tweets from the night, handily Storified for you:

I wonder if there's a band in America called Lanarkshire... or similar?
