After guitarist Lynval Golding dedicated 'A Message To You Rudy' to current keyboard player Nik Torp, Hall retorted: "It's nice to work with someone without a God complex." Founder member Jerry Dammers had declined to take part in the reunion having described it as a "takeover" and claiming that he'd been forced out of the band.
But Hall saved his ire for 'Babylon' singer David Gray. Introducing 'Hey Little Rich Girl', Hall said: "I'd like to dedicate this to David Gray's big, round, bobbing head -- every f------ inch it!" Having played 'Blank Expression', Hall justified his outburst by saying, "Well, he is a c---!"
Hall is no stranger to controversial comments. Earlier this year at a gig in Leeds, the singer -- referring to Leeds United's 1992 sale of Eric Cantona to Manchester United -- quipped, "Thanks very much for Cantona." A shower of coins from the partisan crowd led Hall to hastily add, "It was only a joke!"
