I'll let someone else go into detail, but Reg was pretty sick, unfortunately. She was a trooper and did her very best (she took a swig of cold medicine from the bottle at the very beginning of the show) but it was clear she wasn't feeling great. That said, it was still an incredible show with an incredible setlist and I cried through the first two songs per usual out of sheer happiness at the fact that she exists. Hahah.

Go into detail!

Just got home. Posting the vids in a few. What a night. Thanks again for the MAJOR tix upgrade, Serge!!!

I can't form coherent sentences right now because yeah, I'm just a blubbering pile of mess every time I watch Regina.

Yes!!! Plus two covers of Bulat's Russian songs. One we've heard before (the prayer of Francois villon), but the other is new. The show was an excellent blend of old, new, and unreleased material. I wonder if any of the revived songs will be on the new album? It's a strong possibility.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I had my doubts, hearing all of the warnings, but in my heart I knew you would manage.

What a great night.
