Hollywood Palladium, Los Angeles, CA | April 16, 2015

The second Palladium show was a stand-out, from all accounts. After playing a somewhat shorter than usual set the previous night, the band played 27 songs, with 3 (!) encores.

I came across a link on the Mats Facebook page to some beautiful black and white photos of both Hollywood shows, taken by Jim Wright: April 15 | April 16

Shirt Watch Show 5: The bottom letters are what’s being spelled out on the back, hard to find good shots of those letters. (Paul is spelling out a message, adding a letter each night of the tour.  He said what’s being spelled on front is for the audience and the one on back is for the band.)
