They also played Luritja Way and im sure another newy as well,
the usual Beds,King,Dead heart,Blue Sky, Read about it,Forgotten years,
slipped in weapon and truganini tonight,and finished with an awesome 
rendition of Only the strong .Yes and i think Olivier got a little more
than he bargained for,Twas quite humourous.New tracks sounding great can't 
wait for the album.Anyways i cant remember the order of the setlist.It was a 
Tiring 3 days but well worth the trip down oh well must be off to work.
