The show was filmed at The Point Depot in Dublin, Ireland, on December 22, 1999, the final night of Gray's Irish tour in support of his White Ladder album.
As Gray explains in the Up to a Point documentary on the DVD version of the performance: “It’s hard to avoid the clichés, but what the hell. It was an unforgettable night to crown an incredible year. Not so much a gig as a celebration. A moment when it all made sense, a stepping into bigger shoes, a taste of things to come.”
The performance of "Babylon" was released as a B-side on Gray's "Please Forgive Me" CD single.
Famous quotes containing the words live and/or david:
“Women of fashion and characterI do not mean absolutely unblemishedare a necessary ingredient in the composition of good company; the attention which they require, and which is always paid them by well-bred men, keeps up politeness, and gives a habit of good-breeding; whereas men, when they live together without the lenitive of women in company, are apt to grow careless, negligent, and rough among one another.”
—Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (16941773)
“A true Friendship is as wise as it is tender. The parties to it yield implicitly to the guidance of their love, and know no other law nor kindness.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
