Elbow Setlist – April 9th, 2008

This is the set list from the Elbow gig at Bristol’s Colston Hall on April 9th.

I realise this content appears elsewhere on the blog (in an update to another post), but I thought I’d give it a post of it’s own. Its the sort of content I search for on the web, so the easier I can make it for others to find, the better for people like me.

A tip of the hat to Elmoo over on last.fm

As an aside, it would be really handy if a Wiki was setup for setlists to be placed. I’ve been tempted to do it myself but I think it would be difficult to get going as it will require a large number of gig goers to get it going.

    As it did well, me and a friend started investigating the idea of launching a set-list wiki. Either using pre-built wiki software, or something created by ourselves (perhaps based on an API which provides gig dates).

    We started planning it and liked what we had. We then checked out Google to see what else was out there. We saw setlist.fm and at that point thought “well, sod it!”.

    setlist.fm had created the site we wanted.


  4. […] in April of last year I posted a review of an Elbow gig, and a couple days later the set-list for the gig. And every time they tour, those posts get what I consider to be a reasonable number of […]
