I was looking for this thread in the Live Gigs area!!

Anni and Angelwithasmile- I'm SO happy you both made it!!! How completely awesome, and you met up with the crazy crew too. I'm gutted I couldn't make it - was on a plane flying home on the 4th! What bad timing on my part. It would have been magical to see James again, and hear him perform live again (is there anything to compare with a live performance by James? It's just transcending!) but ESPECIALLY to see you lovely lovely girls again.
Thanks for sharing your review of the night.
I hope to hear more soon
xx

Thanks angelwithasmile for the link. Here's the full text. Don't miss the beautiful picture.

Prince Harry is a 'great soldier and a really nice person' says James Blunt

CAMERON ADAMS NATIONAL MUSIC WRITER
News Limited Network
October 04, 2013

SINGER songwriter James Blunt has been evasive when asked if he will catch up with his mate Prince Harry in Sydney this weekend.

Blunt is in town to promote his new album Moon Landing. Prince Harry attended the London launch of the record several weeks ago along with Princess Beatrice.

The Prince is in Sydney for the International Fleet Review.

"He's on official business, as am I," Blunt told News Corp.

"I know him from army days, we were the same regiment. He came to my album launch, as well as a lot of other people. I know him as a really nice person ... and also a really great soldier."

Nine things you didn't know about Prince Harry.

Blunt said he never looked at Harry's nude Vegas photos, but bemoans the state of celebrity in a song on his new album Miss America, inspired by the fascination over the demise of Whitney Houston.

"I don't click online if there's a story like that (Vegas)," Blunt said. "By clicking, another paparazzi goes out. Look what happened to his mother. Who's fault was that? Yours and mine. I really believe that. So I don't think it's worth clicking on.

"Someone like him, he's a serving soldier. He's here to do something formal, that's what we should read about. It's fantastic. Seeing those ships out there is fantastic. What do I bring to the world? As a musician my music brings people together. I can play in Beirut in front of Muslims Christians and Jews all in the same room singing the same songs.

"For me the real celebrities of the world are doctors and nurses and firemen who save lives, teachers, aid workers who rebuild countries. my song Miss America is saying don't click on that, read a good book instead of a s---y magazine, listen to a song rather than obsess about who's wearing what."

Blunt will return for a concert tour of Australia next May. Moon Landing is released on October 18.

James Blunt iHeartRADIO Sydney Theatre Show Was Not A Royal Performance
by PAUL CASHMERE on OCTOBER 5, 2013

UK singer/songwriter James Blunt performed the first of the iHeartRADIO Theatre shows in Sydney on Friday night for 200 fans but there were no Royals in attendance.

The rumour sweeping Sydney yesterday was that Prince Harry would attend the show but the Royal plane touched down at Sydney airport after the show had ended.

The intimate James Blunt show took place at Sydney’s The Star Casino.

Blunt showcased his new album ‘Moon Landing’ with the new songs ‘Miss America’ and ‘Bonfire Heart’ as well as his greatest hits including ‘High’, ‘Goodbye My Lover’ and ‘You’re Beautiful’.

The iHeartRADIO Theatre show marked the first Australian show for the iHeartRADIO streaming service, launched in Australia recently.

The iHeartRADIO Theatre shows have been performed regularly in the United States and have featured Bruno Mars, Usher, Alicia Keys, Justin Bieber, One Republic and Lady Antebellum.

The Australian edition of iHeartRADIO is part of the Australian Radio Network (ARN) broadcast platforms. ARN runs the Mix and Gold radio networks across Australia.

The James Blunt setlist from Sydney, October 4, 2013 was:

High (from Back To Bedlam, 2004)
Wise Men (from Back To Bedlam, 2004)
Same Mistake (from All The Lost Souls, 2007)
Miss America (from Moon Landing, 2013)
Goodbye My Lover (from Back To Bedlam, 2004)
Blue on Blue (from Moon Landing, 2013)
1973 (from All The Lost Souls, 2007)
Stay The Night (from Some Kind Of Trouble, 2010)
I Really Want You (from All The Lost Souls, 2007)
You’re Beautiful (from Back To Bedlam, 2004)
Bonfire Heart (from Moon Landing, 2013)

Thanks Thulkurr for this link. I can't agree more with the first line of the text.

Blunt Instrument
Saturday 05 October, 2013

You can’t beat natural talent - and it is a rare thing indeed to experience a global star of the magnitude of James Blunt standing just a few metres away in a small room.

Blunt mesmerised the 200 fans (as well as this one and his wife) who had won a coveted place through MixFM to be at Australia’s first ever iHeartRadio Theatre event, held at the tiny Rock Lilly club in the bowels of Sydney’s The Star.

MixFM’s Tim ‘Rosso’ Ross introduced and farewelled Blunt who performed many of his hits from his career including High, Goodbye My Lover and You’re Beautiful as well as songs from his new October 18 album Moon Landing, including Miss America and the very catchy Bonfire Heart.

A firm fixture in the US live music scene, the Los Angeles and New York iHeartRadio Theatres have included performances by some of the biggest names in the music industry including Bruno Mars, Usher, Alicia Keys, Justin Bieber, One Republic and Lady Antebellum.

ARN recently launched the iHeartRadio app on iOS and Android, released ahead of schedule due to overwhelming public demand of the online service and the app rocketed straight to No. 1 on the music app charts. The iHeartRadio mobile app has already amassed more than 226 million downloads in the U.S., making it one of the most popular apps ever. iHeartRadio reached 20 million registered users faster than any digital service in internet history. It continues to be the No. 1 all-in-one digital service in the U.S. with more than 65 million monthly unique users across its network.

Thanks for the links JBfan132

His interview is like groundhog day I think he says the same at all interviews doesn't he? Even after three years. The 12 hairy men joke must work though to use it every time? Maybe its a chat up line?

The reference to Carrie Fisher is odd really, its like the show is linking her to his songs wondering if they had a romance?

His song 'You're beautiful' was different in the sense that other times you see him sing it its to an audience and he is smiling and they are singing along and the emotion of the song is lost. But here he is singing it with emotion like he means it, and its like he is giving someone a message 'I'll never be with you'

Maybe Aussies fans can explain what this announcement means? Is James to host a radio show every week or what?

http://www.smoothfm.com.au/music/smooth-music/james-blunt-on-smoothfm

Superstar James Blunt is joining the smoothfm family, Sundays from 4pm

James Blunt is one of the world’s best musicians and now, having released his fourth album Moon Landing, he is adding radio host to his long list of accomplishments.

You can join James as he plays his smooth favourites every Sunday afternoon on smoothfm from 4pm, so grab yourself a cuppa or a nice glass of fine wine, settle down on the couch and relax with James and your favourite music.

Oh jbfan132, if only!

I doubt it means James will be a regular host, likely just the wording of the announcement makes it seem so. I think it's more a one off guest host, but that smoothfm is on every Sunday 4pm.
A bit like the joke about "the panda that eats, shoots and leaves."

Unless I'm wrong! O.o
(But I kinda think James may have better things to do on a Sunday afternoon).

Zephyr, I've just opened a specific thread for this announcement. I'm hooked to the letter "s" at the end of "Sundays".

From SmoothFM 95.3 Sydney Facebook and Twitter accounts, it does seem to be true, a weekly show.
