I think it is funny that you are all talking about how fantastic Running Scared is sung live. I adore that song (and asked Di if she could record it). Today when I went to Dads (an hour and 3/4 round trip) I had that one song on repeat the whole time. I had my windows down and played it loud and proud. The only thing I forgot was at the end I would be belting out that last note MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE ever so loudly and forgot I had the windows down. Oops!
Thank you all for the reports. Awesome, awesome, awesome.
LOOKING FORWARD TO THE NEW ALBUM 'SONGS FROM IRELAND' RELEASED 13th MARCH, 2015
Trills did mention about my 'eyebrow moment' but not my 'piece de resistance' and I am more than happy to share. We were in second row, the seating there is very elevated so you can see over the head of the person in front. I was sitting directly in front of Damien so had a great view of him. After he had come out and finished his first little bracket of songs, he stopped for his customary banter - looked straight at ME, and said, "Thank you for the lovely biscuits Gloria" and gave me a huge smile. God, I just melted and blew him a double kiss back ...I'm actually amazed at myself for being able to do that spontaneously as I'm usually so in awe of his prescence I just stop functioning - not this time though. (see, told you I got great mileage out of the Melting Moments!!!) Then later, he sang G L O R I A and I'm as happy as a pig in sh*t!!
At Wangaratta I also gave him a teddy bear which I had made for Kikki... I asked George to pass it on to him as I didn't think it appropriate to put it on the stage. I hope he liked it, actually I hope he got it
This whole tour has been a fantastic experience. Not only did I get to four Damien Leith shows but had the pleasure of the company of my fellow Damienites (geez it sounds good to say that). Also let my hair down a bit and got completely out of my normal routine (not used to having alcohol at 1am, haha) Thank you ladies for a wonderful 4 1/2 days, for your wonderful company, and all the laughs.
aaaaaah absolutely LOVED reading your special "MELTING MOMENT" Glawz!!! How gorgeous was that, beautiful story Hope I will be able to try some of your lovely biscuits one day, they've got a great reputation! What a beautiful pressie for Kikki!!
Saw your daughter's Happy Birthday moment at one of the other shows Di , just so special and lovely to read
Some self-promotion at the show is probably a necessary evil to get the word out about his other projects especially when some of Damien's audience may not access his website or DLO to see his latest news. It's great that Damien always does it in his own modest way & with humour, I love that he'll never be a "showbizzy" type & respect him so much for that .
Great to see everyone arriving back safely, enjoy your happy comas and memories

What can I say, the whole 4 nights were just maginificent, great company lots of fun and DAMIEN Thankyou everyone for making this the best road trip I've ever been on. Damien is just soooo gorgeous, it was wonderful getting a chance to catch up with him after the show, he was very relaxed and happy. The Regent at Ballarat is a lovely looking venue, it was wonderful to turn around at the end of the show and see at least half of the audience on their feet, the one thing I don't like there though is the seating, the seats are just too high, I felt like I was craning my neck to see sometimes, but Damien is just wonderful. I mansaged to record a couple of songs there too, I just have to upload them all here's one
