And how was it?

Tomorrow night for me! Although the weather forecast changed and now there is a chance of thundershowers all through tomorrow evening, last time I was at Jones Beach there was a lot of lightning, I had to move up to the nosebleeds which is the only section under roof, and it cut short and screwed up my enjoyment of David Bowie's set.

Ignoreland becoming a staple?

This is so, so wrong.

You hate Bush, we get it.

A better song, please.

Well, he hates Reagan and the other Bush, too. I suspect he would hate you as well, despite your politics.

Just got back from Jones Beach - NIGHTMARE weather for a venue surrounded by water with very little cover and no buildings for miles. Modest Mouse got cut short a song or two because lightning hit the lights at the top of the stadium during their set and they cleared everyone out. Show was then delayed for over an hour, and it poured with occasional lightning in the farther distance for all of R.E.M.'s set.

EDIT: Somebody actually put up video already on YouTube of them halting the show:


They also threw in It's The End of the World As We Know It for the first time this tour, I think (Stipe said they hadn't rehearsed it at all). Johnny Marr came out at the end again for Fall on Me and probably one or two others...I missed the last song or two to get a jump on the bus home. It was so wet, that Stipe didn't put on his concert clothes, he had his regular street stuff on, and they just went into the encore instead of going off-stage. At this show, Stipe was throwing Obama t-shirts into the audience. Stipe and the band were in great spirits, which helped keep us in great spirits despite being poured on.

BTW, they did Ignoreland again, so yes you can call it a staple - and I liked it!

This was the setlist:

Have You Ever Seen the Rain (last-minute add)
So. Central Rain
These Days
Living Well Is the Best Revenge
WTF, Kenneth?
Man sized wreath
1,000,000
Ignoreland
Hollowman
Welcome to the Occupation
Houston
Electrolite
Horse to Water
The One I Love
Let Me In
Bad Day
Orange Crush
I'm Gonna DJ

Encore (although they did not break):

Supernatural Superserious
Losing my religion
It's the End of the World (impromptu add)
Fall on Me
Man on the Moon

As I was suspecting since I found out I only missed one song, making the show seem slightly fast (understandably so, though!) they did reportedly cut some planned songs - Heron House, Strange Currencies, Animal, Until the Day is Done, and Life and How to Live It in the main set and Harborcoat, Imitation of Life, Nightswimming from the encore. Still 23 songs is quite a full show, especially under the circumstances, and still a fabulous show!

BTW, an article about the craziness there last night:
