Awesome, thank you! I really, REALLY hope they keep Mysterious Ways in there for Seattle. I'm dying to hear it.

It's been on the setlist for the last three shows...very good chance it will stay on there.

I was in Seattle for PopMart. AWESOME fans up there!

Oh, I'm so glad to hear that they have good fans there! I'm from Vancouver and I would really LOVE to go to my hometown show but since that's not going to happen, Seattle is the next closest. I'm also going to NYC in October, and I know that will be awesome.

I'll be there too! Which show are you going to?
Date:April 6th, 2005 07:11 am (UTC)


We're going to the show on the 11th. I was planning to go to NYC this summer to see a friend, and when we found out about the shows in Oct, we decided to try for tickets and if we got them, I'd go then. To our shock, we did get seats, so in 6 months, there I am!

What show are you heading to?

set list

i really wish they would change the entire set list. I am already sick of reading about the same songs. They have so much to choose from and they stick with the warhorses. I hope by November the set list will change

Re: set list

I was a bit surprised that they used the exact same set list two shows in a row at venues 30 miles apart. I imagine they'll move things around tonight tho. Curious what changes will be made. It might just end up looking like Anaheim 1.

I do think they've struck a winner with the current set list, and they know it. After the dress rehearsal and SD1, a lot of people were saying that the show didn't flow well. When they played Anaheim, they had turned the set list completely on its head, and people were much more receptive. I think tonight's will be a good indicator of whether or not this set list will be the standard one, give or take a few songs. If they stick with it for more than three nights, it's a pretty safe bet.

one more thing...

they stick with the warhorses

Interesting you say that, because some radio people in Anaheim were complaining that the set list was too geared toward long-time die-hard fans and not enough toward the general masses.

I agree with you, tho. There are a few songs that I think need to be put into hibernation for this tour.

I am so glad they pulled LAPOE away from SBS and Bullet! Now I just need them to completely remove SBS :P It's wicked that Vertigo is higher up too. I bet that song is just gonna get cooler and cooler live the more they play it.

I possibly like this set list best so far. Guess I'll have to hear it first to be sure. But seriously, I am *not* a fan of that little set with Pride, WTSHNN and one. Mix it up! Get rid of Pride! Yeah right.

"Vertigo" is absolutely WICKED live.

I like that they moved LAPOE away from the songs it was near, but I'm not sure if I really like it as an opener. It was much more fun when it was in the middle, because it was a huge showstopper. People went ballistic. Maybe the band hopes that people will go ballistic early on instead of in the middle, but from what I've seen, they don't get nearly as crazy with it as the opener than they did when it was in the middle. The set list needs that shot of adrenaline partway through the show. As it is now, at least for me, things start to get mellow after "The Fly." That's too soon. I love the set list, but I think there's still some tweaking to be done.
