And while the band's flawless mix of pop, prog and jazz tickled the audience throughout the 14-song performance, clearly fans were waiting to hear the hits. Silent Running, with a sinuous guitar solo from band namesake Mike Rutherford and the melancholy reflection of The Living Years are performed back to back but conspicuously absent is biggie All I Need is a Miracle, in all likelihood out of deference to Paul Young, the late band member who originally sang the song.
The title cut from the Word of Mouth album closes the show. Bonus features include promo video clips for seven songs and an interview segment with Rutherford and Carrack.
