Here below a couple of things I learned yesterday watching Paolo Nutini’s concerts @Royal Albert Hall in London as part of the mythical Teenage Cancer Trust events:

  1. After starting his career as a young minstrel armed with an amazing voice and an acoustic guitar he’s turning into a white version of Charles Bradley with a 10 men band including amazing vocalists and a brass section
  2. Still, as Bob Dylan does, he likes to re-arrange his songs differently at every tour, and all the songs from his 2nd album (10/10, Pencil Full of Lead in particular) sound much better with the new arrangement than on the record
  3. Who da fuck invented the fx of the videos projected on the screens? Unless you are on acid they don’t add anything to the concert and if you are far away they don’t help you getting a better view
  4. Roger Daltrey (The Who) still had a hell of a voice and he proved it singing “Cherry Blossom” with him
  5. I still cannot understand a single word of his Scottish accent when he talks in-between songs
  6. Ti Voglio Bene Assai” (of italian artist Lucio Dalla) can become an anthem when played by a sexy half Scottish half italian
  7. Better Man” potentially is a song that every groom could be playing at his own wedding
  8. 8 years after the first time we saw him live in Lausanne, Switzerland he’s still as stoned as ever on stage
  9. The Royal Albert Hall is definitely one of the most amazing concert venue of the world
  10. Teenage Cancer Trust is an amazing charity organization that deserves all the support we can give them

Hey Hey, My My, keep on rockin’ in a free world
