"I think this is maybe our third acoustic gig ever," Lloyd told the crowd. During 'We Were Children', he explained: "This is the part of the song where I’d normally jump into the crowd. I’m not feeling that tonight... would that be intimate?"

Later, as Lloyd introduced a cover of The Kinks' 'Sunny Afternoon', he explained their choice of tribute, saying: "Everyone loves The Kinks, right? I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t."
