I'd guess yes. Sometimes people need to immerse themselves in something like work to blank other things out. And he probably need the money.

I was impressed by his performance. I think he acknowledged the situation regarding Peaches recent death near the end straight after Diamond Smiles, when he said "thank you, it's been hard ...... that was hard" and then got straight on with The Boomtown Rats (which I heard at Chagstock - it's a new one isn't it?). It kind of went un acknowledged, but if guess by then it was all frantic and last bit of the encore, I may even have misheard or misinterpreted what he said.

I think the reference was because that song is pretty much about the same thing as happened to Peaches, I was amazed they played it. It's one of my favourites, but I said to my daughter on the way up to Wychwood "I can't imagine him ever performing that live again".

Definitely a good show, for me a better performance than Chagstock last year.
