Notes (by Avril): This theatre is amazing, you can hear a pin drop in there. Glen is doing a solo version of Leave, just him and the guitar unplugged. He’s singing away; “leave, leave, I don’t understand, you’ve already gone”, cue a sneeze from someone in the audience and Glen says “bless you” before moving on to the next lyric which of course is “And I hope you feel better, now that’s out”. Glen’s starting to giggle at this stage “what took you so long?” The audience are tying to fight it, not wanting to laugh and ruin the atmosphere of the angrier acoustic song but the sniggering gets worse throughout the verse so it’s no surprise when the audience is in convulsions by the time Glen is singing the next lines “sneeze, sneeze, and please yourself at the same time”.
