Watched a few nice videos on youtube...
It seems there was no change in the setlist. 'Into The Dark' was in too.

Here you get many videos: http://www.youtube.com/results?uploaded=d&search_query=%22james+blunt%22&search_type=videos&suggested_categories=10%2C24&uni=3

Hello & welcome, Julia and Tricia..  Both of you are the first to post a review here on Moscow thread.. Very happy that you had a great time! I had the pleasure, too, of watching a few of the videos and saw just how wonderful it was. The whole audience of course..  Thank you TheBluntfan..  Listening to Carry You Home, I had noticed that he played it more slower, I really loved that!  Also the lighting during Turn Me On flashing. *laughs at self* you know I'm quite sure there's a technical word for that, haven't a clue here. I could imagine how inviting that was with not only the energy on stage but the audience.. Really sweet touch yea...  JBfan, had a sneak peek at the pictures, had noticed that he's wearing a new shirt.. Not sure of the words on it, can you make them out. Though really it's fine, I'm not one to gawk much but was a bit curious.

Thank you all for the warm welcome. Well, it's my second post here now. And it was my first time seeing James live in concert. It also was the first time I saw a singer crowd surfing I wished James would have interacted with the audience a little bit more. He's got a charming and exceptional voice..

It was great to feel the energy emitting from the stage! And I could see that the band also really enjoyed playing. I liked that during performance James went to every musician in his band and played along with them for a bit.

I wish all the best to James Blunt and his crew and I hope to see them live again!)

Thanks for all the pics and videos

Wish James and the band a decent tour in Russia!

It's better if there would be some changes to the setlist.

After reading the poor google translation, it seems to be a good review of the concert. They praise his enthusiasm...

I've read this article. As I see your google translation was kind. Cause the real article in russian is MORE than awful. They don't praise his enthusiasm! They say some kind of: "James Blunt is a mediocre singer, his songs are uncomplicated. James Blunt is not acknowledged and it was surprisingly that he has fans here. Who listen to him? Only girls who like his appearance and who doesn't know who is Elton John and Bryan Adams. In his old age old ladies would be listen to him, who now are these young girls.". They compare James Blunt with one russian singer who is a laughingstock in practically in every TV-show. Who wrote this article? A person without heart and feeling? But it is a special feature of Kommersant

TanyaO, that's a terrible review isn't it.   I hope James doesn't read Russian!

But I'm sure James would be more interested in the audience's reaction and judging from what has been said on these pages everyone at the concert was very enthusiastic and really enjoyed themselves.  That's what really counts.

It was strange to watch when James Blunt walked down to stage. He just walked from balcony door and only few people on balcony took notice of him! I caught a sight of dissapointment and awkwardness on James Blunt's face. 1 or 2 first songs James looked a little bit tight and as I feel the audience was constrained too. But then all was great I noticed one terrible moment! When he was carried in fans hands to the stage, some persons went to the barrier  (I mean they wanted to be closer to the stage). At that moment I saw that James Blunt's back curved and he was nearly to fall!!!! It was just a moment and may be even James didn't really notice it because somebody caught up him and helped to climb a barrier. But it was really terrible to notice that he COULD have fallen. What did people think of ?!?! When somebody thrust  himself to our care (no matter how long it is!) we have to remember about his safety.

A Friend, who is reading Kommersant? heheh just boring men who listen to boring music or don't listen to music at all. We love James Blunt and his songs and if there were only few people who love James it would mean alot! Significance is described not in quantity but in quality But James is lucky! He has alot of fans and has a great songs!

Thanks TheBluntfan and TanyaO. If I understand well, 'Kommersant' in Russia can be put in the same box as 'The Sun' in UK. I wonder if the author was really in the audience or if he wrote this rubbish sitting at the bar? Must be disappointing for James.

Kommersant is a business paper (it is said that it is a magazine but I am sure it is a paper hehehe). There was 2 or might be more photographers in Crocus City Hall.

I think that James Blunt wasn't upset if he would read that strange article. Or might be he would laughing at it with musicians. It is a pity to say but there are only few normal singers and bands in Russia. And I think it is too hard for some russian people (for journalist too) to admit that there are often appear new talented singers (and not only singers!) in another countries. I said it not because I am a huge fan of James Blunt. Yeah I do love his songs but I am not biased. I said it just to clear up WHY that article somewhat haughty and negative. Russia is in that period now, when there are no good movies (or just few), no good songs... But there are TOO many singers who lip-synch a song. Russia is trying to move forward but hold on to Past at that time when we had good movies and good singers. So I DO HOPE that that Kommersant article wouldn't be prophertical. I could realize HOW hard to write songs (I don't write songs, but I know what muse is it). And I hope James Blunt will write more beautiful tender songs which come from his heart and soul!

Let's talk about positive moments I noticed that the most positive person in band is a drummer (don't cast stones at me - It always hard for me to remember names). He filled stage and hall with sun and positive!!!! I saw it in his eyes, his smile. But I was great perplexity that I can't notice it in photos etc. It is strange

Heheh THANKS I will remember. Karl must take up a closer position to the audience  No matter that he is a drummer

Many videos on this Youtube channel. Sometimes we seem to hear more the person holding the camera than James.

jbfan132 hahah I've noticed that too when was watching videos. But when I were there I heard ONLY James Blunt. May be because I stood opposite the subwoofer  Ohh how it was GREAT to stay only several metres (and sometimes closer) to James Blunt! It seemed like there were no audience behind me
