Opener, C’est La Vie saw Kelly Jones self isolate at the end of a long runway but he soon joined the rest of the band for I Wanna Get Lost With You. With other classics like Mr Writer and Local Boy in the Photograph woven in amongst new tunes like Bust This Town and Fly Like an Eagle, the night culminated in two classics and crowd favourites, Just Looking and Dakota.
