I think it may be a little while before Erik can compose himself and post here again as he’s probably still pinching himself to see if it wasn’t all a dream.

Anyway, in museum Louisiana, north of Copenhagen, Denmark, or for those with a little geographic knowledge – ‘Just Across the Øresund’, it was a cold night.
But even if the sea was frozen outside the windows, there was very warm anticipation inside.

Erik sat in the front row between his girlfriend Jane and Jimmy’s wife Laura, and I sat behind Laura with Sven and Totti (from Finland).

This felt a little strange at times because every time Jimmy looked at Laura (which he did a lot) I thought he was smiling at me (Tim)!

Playing in Denmark for the first time was a step into the unknown for Jimmy and I thought he was a little nervous to start with because of this, but he needn’t have worried.
There are obviously a number of frustrated Danish Webb fans who have been unable to see him perform live before, and the screams of a couple when they heard him begin to sing ‘What does a Woman see in a Man’ surprised him so much he had to stop (in a nice way!).

The whole evening was special but a couple of extra highlights!

The date of the concert coincided with a full moon, and I suppose because of the cold and the air being so clear, it was the brightest full moon you are ever likely to see.
One wall of the concert hall was glass and this just happened to be the side on which the moon was rising.
So it was a wonderful and unique moment when Jimmy sang ‘The Moon’s a Harsh Mistress’ with both him and us bathed in this strong moonlight.

Jimmy also spent some time speaking about Erik, about how this concert was his, and how he came to ‘love Erik as a brother’ before singing ‘Where’s the Playground Susie?’ for him. Another magical moment.
