Sunday, 1 April 2007    Hammersmith Palais, London

Senior Twilight Stock Replacer / Pacifying Joint / Fall Sound / Over! Over! / Theme from Sparta FC / Hungry Freaks, Daddy / Wrong Place, Right Time / My Door Is Never / The Wright Stuff / White Lightning / Blindness // Reformation

Last ever gig at the Hammersmith Palais.

Reviews on the message board, the Evening Standard, Yahoo Music, PlayLouder, The Guardian (3 April), The Financial Times (2 April) and the NME. And a bit of hyperbole from contactmusic.com:

A riotous performance by veteran British band THE FALL saw legendary London music venue the Hammersmith Palais close its doors for the last time yesterday (01APR07). During the incident-packed gig, some audience members took offence at frontman MARK E SMITH's refusal to acknowledge the venue's closure, and mayhem ensued as angry concertgoers invaded the stage in protest. The final encore of the hour-long show was cut short after security bundled the troublemakers offstage and fans tried to pull down light fittings as souvenirs.

On Sunday, The Telegraph covered the (apparently "official") last show at the Palais the night before, and previewed the Fall's actual closing. The Independent wrote about the closing, too (31 March).

Thanks as always to Mark for the setlist.
