i wasn't in this concert in lyon...but i was the day before in grenoble...i understand Ju to be disapointed to see the same set that in grenoble...
I've seen ben in his DVD who used to say that he never plays the same set two consecutive days...but apparently sometimes he does...

a little explication for Ju about "when she believes"
in fact this song is a sample of a piaf's song (l'hymne a l'amour) on the album the sample is played on "accord

Hello Ben... :)
I heard you yesterday on France Inter (live at studio 104), and it reminded me of Friday, november the 14th... A day I'll never forget; you were there, in lyon, in the same place of mine.... And thousands people were there, with you, to listen to your magical music... 2h30 of happiness, of "awoken dream"!!! I came to see you with my best friend, and we often talk about this "unforgettable" day; we still don't realize that we've been at you show!!
Looking forward to seeing you soon, and... maybe one day I'll be lucky to see you in a intimate show, 1000 people only, as yesterday, in studio 104 !!!

Bye... and carry on, Ben, keep giving us hope and dreams and happiness...

Dear Ben, something for you...
Last time you came in Lyon,
You reached everyone's heart,
So good until you're gone,
So deep in soul of art.
Amen Oh man,
will we see your face again?
I was there with my girlfriend :
She was so glad to see you Ben...
You almost made me want to
Trust in God and shed some tears,
The way you talk about Him
Makes me shiver and releases from fear...
You're the eyes for the blind,
and legs for the lame,
You're the love for hate
light for those who don't have flame...
Keep on leading us to freedom and happiness, and thanks for everything you have given to us...

Are you kidding?
I was at Grenoble the previous day, and you've done the same setlist. It was a big deception for me. I though that with your talent, you can change your setlist every night. More, the acoustic set can be change, and you've done exactly the same.
No inspiration?
For me, it was a little bit a deception.
But I have to stop for that now.
This concert was so good. The emotion was here, and all the songs you played made me in an extraordinary state of emotion. No one understood you when you said "I would like to dedicate this song to Edith Piaf", but it was very good.
Thank you very much but don't change, Ben.
Positive vibrations
PS: I believe in a better way !

Thank you

Great gig, you guys!
A shame that Ben, you didn't talk more to us fans. We understand English y'know!
Widow of a living man tore me apart and I shall not walk alone was just amazingly good... You should consider touring in tiny venues, maybe under a pseudonym...
Juan is a definite basse god, he rawks!
Thanks guys, enjoy the rest of the French tour!
