Neil says they're changing a few songs for the Dreamworld tour this year. Did he say 2-3 songs? I didn't hear it clearly.

Do we think these are Dreamworld shows, or Nonetheless shows?
Woof.

From the radio show I deduct that they are Dreamworld shows but with a few songs changed. I assume they play Loneliness. But what else will be changed.... well, who knows.

So glad I held out going to see Dreamworld again this year ...

Saw the Inner Sanctum show twice at the ROH and it was truly special - wonderful venue ...

I'm looking very much to seeing this performance also. I suspect they will twist up the Dreamworld set a bit - perhaps different staging elements to fit in with Nonetheless as they will definitely want to use these shows to promote the album.

No doubt we'll see some exclusive merch - another limited ed print I guess and a special ROH mug in white this time would be very welcome

What a time to be alive!

Ok so it looks like it's being marketed as a continuation of the Dreamworld tour on the ROH site and Afirka, Simon and Clare all part of the show

Hmm, if it's just the Dreamworld show, that makes me less eager to see it more than once here, although the ROH is an incredible venue.

I have to be honest and say I'm disappointed that it'll be the Dreamworld presentation. I was hoping/dreaming of 5 stand-alone performances like the Elysium one in Berlin, although I appreciate that it would be difficult to rehearse those and still be touring the Dreamworld concerts.. Oh well..
