The band did their usual songs (Columbus Stockade Blues, Honey Don't, Bye Bye Johnny, Big Boss Man) and it was time for our man. Although he did not as many songs as in Paris, he played really extended versions. And he was in a talking mood in between songs, joking throughout the concert. At the beginning he asked the audience for requests and Pierre Pennone shouted the loudest, guess what: Mexicali Rose! And we got it. Another time Pierre shouted Old Black Joe and Jerry replied: "That goes way back to my drinking days!"

At one time Jerry asked us: "it is so quite, are you preaching?" But the thing was, that Jerry really talked a lot and everybody was trying to understand him (which is not an easy thing these days) and therefore it became always very quite between the songs.

All in all a great show and Jerry was in an excellent mood and the people liked it.

The first greeting was: "Welcome in Clayton, Louisiana!...Kenny, in what city we are in?" And before Kenny could answer him, the Killer went on: "Do you really think I forgot in which city we are in. Hello Lyon, France." He even built it in in the song You Win Again.

Lastly: What do you think about this: After WLSGO he looked at his watch and nodded something like "We're on time" and went straight into GBOF. Or is it just coincidentally that so far all shows have finished at around 45 minutes?
