Comments: Damien Rice and Lisa Hannigan played a short set after The Chalets and before The Frames. There was video footage projected onto a screen behind the band during some songs. They used footage from the ‘Finally’ single cover shoot for ‘Finally’, they used footage from the Eyebrowy animation ‘O Harmonica Where Art Thou…’ for ‘Rent Day Blues’, they used footage of the Number 8 ball logo for ‘Revelate’, some really touching footage of the late great honourable Mic Christopher for ‘Friends and Foe’, some footage of a bird for ‘Early Bird’ and used the ‘Star Star’ video while they were playing that. Also, they had a string quartet for ‘Happy’, ‘Suffer in Silence’ and ‘Fitzcarraldo’.
