First thoughts were... I bet this is amazing...

I think it's pretty amazing. No idea what the live show will be like but if it's anything like the box set... brilliant.

Like we say, we've got a couple of big features on the great man coming up.

If it's as good as his previous spoken-word-musical extravaganzas it'll be rather amazing. I am rather tempted.
