gruff rhys

Newport- 26/02/2007 The Riverfront The stage and venue were set up to give the impression of being on a flight, with in-flight magazine and 3D glasses.  Lisa Jen joined Gruff on stage to perform the title track from his album Candylion along with other highlights such as Cycle of Violence, Now That The Feeling Has Gone and Gyrru Gyrru Gyrru.  Old classics from Yr Atal Genhedlaeth were also played including Gwn Mi Wn including live sampled looped harmonies.  Gruff also played a cover of Meic Stevens' Y Brard Houdini before donning a captain's outfit with Lisa Jen in a shiny stewardess outfit, to play out with the huge and brilliant song Skylon, before returning to the stage for a solo encore.
