5/29/2000: Mike Peters, Olympia, Dublin
MPO can confirm rumours that Mike Peters & the New Electric Band will be touring in May as Special Guest to Big Country on the “Final Fling Tour” (Big Country’s Farewell tour before splitting up).
Mike and the boys are very much looking forward to returning to the UK in
May. Mike will be playing with a full electric line up and for those of you
who witnessed the shows in December, you will know that this tour promises
to be really special!Set List
Mike’s show was very well received by the half-full Olympia. The audience sang along to the alarm songs and 68 guns was received with a very big cheer. Mike was in good voice to begin with,but did sound a little hoarse after the 2nd song, he explained that he had just played 11and1/2 hours for his fan club in wales and had a cold. At the end of the set mike asked the audience if they would like to hear “rescue me” or “blaze of glory”, i must have been the only one put my hand up for “rescue me”, although “blaze of glory” was ideal to finish the set with.
