I wonder where they stay after the shows.Neil's house or an hotel?
I suspected that the term "residence" (used to describe their Savoy and ROH series of shows) implies that they actually stay at the venue all the time. Wrong?
I believe it means the shows are all at the same venue as apposed to a tour of different venues.

No, I don’t think that’s the case. They dashed off pretty sharpish to somewhere else last year. Chris left literally straight after the gig through a staff entrance apparently.

Was listening to In the Night while driving yesterday.

Made me recall hearing this live at the end ROH shows in 2016. My word it was magnificent and a real standout moment of the show.

Sadly I'm out of the country this time around but would have definitely bought a ticket for these repeat shows. So glad they are going to film this one so that we can all get to watch it at some point.

Those that will be seeing the show for the first time... You're in for a treat!
you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

Do people think the show will be different in any respect than the ones from two years ago?

Just the updated set list that ended on the super tour I’d imagine. Maybe 1-2 variations to it..

I’d like to think they’ll throw a surprise or two in there. I wonder if the merch will be new too?

What exactly is the difference between a lithograph and a poster? Just nicer paper and different printing process?
