No Allen at the Astoria yesterday either. Eric said from the stage that he 
is ill and would be getting treatment back in the States - although he 
didn't elaborate.
This was the 3rd gig that I saw on this tour (Guilfest, Southampton and 
London) - didn't get to see Astronomy at any of them - there was alot of 
loud requesting for it. The Astoria set contained no encores as there was a 
10:15 curfew. This was a bit of a shame as they could have come on earlier 
and done a slightly longer set, but hey it was still an hour and a half ish 
of BOC, and they spent quite a long time on the stage at the end of the set 
thanking the crowd etc. Southampton was the best gig I saw - great venue 
(like someone's front room) long set and some gems thrown in too - see you 
in black, transmaniacon mc. All of the set lists from the current tour are 
on www.hotrails.co.uk (except London which will eventually appear). This is 
a great site.
