It's the B-side to Jeremy, too.

And then, obviously, it's become their signature concert closer.
oh i was just interested in the lyrics, and how it was improvised on the spot and no one, not even Eddie, knows the lyrics.

at the time of the concert i think i'd have preferred Betterman as a closer but now i think Yellow Ledbetter was pretty amazing.

I can't imagine Better Man being a successful closer. The crowd interaction is huge on that one and the crowd would be hungry for more after. As an opener it had worked a couple of times.

Here's what Eddie had to say about Yellow Ledbetter on one of his solo concerts (taken from twofeetthick.com):

"Getting back to the Q&A, Ed asks for another question and one fan’s asks “What are the lyrics to ‘Yellow Ledbetter’?”. The crowd roars in approval and Ed says “Wait … you mean there’s lyrics?” He then proceeds to tell the story surrounding the lyrics, saying it was written around the time of the Gulf War when “Papa Bush” was President. He knew an “alternative-looking” friend from Seattle who received a “yellow letter” when his brother died in the war. Ed was walking with this friend and there was a flag hanging from a porch on a house along the road. When the friend acknowledged the flag patriotically, the people seemed to not reciprocate his homage (”but they don’t wave”) because of his appearance."

Rumors are my Garden May 17 & 18 and your Garden May 20 & 21.

I don't really want to see them play Fenway, have seen Bruce and the $tone$ there, just not a good concert venue, though I assume 10club would have me down front anyway, so it wouldn't be too bad. Doubt they would sell out the place 2 nights.

We should have info around lunchtime.

yea i heard those dates too... i'm not happy about the MSG dates... i've already got tickets to the mets/yankees on may 21st, and am going down to philly for the phillies, um, red sox on the 22nd...

we'll see... maybe i can do the 20th and try to squeeze out another date elsewhere.

Being down front is the only good spot for a Fenway show.

can't.. . AAU tournament.

ahh well...

one assumes that may 18th is another Boston date, and it's strange that they would put it as TBD... i guess they're saving it in case the Celtics are in the playoffs?

perhaps fenway is still an option? sox are away that day... at the spankees none the less.

I assume the 18th is just a rollover TDGarden date that won't get put up till the 17th sells out.
Shouldn't be a problem for PJ in Boston, but promoters are being a tad more cautious these days.

i think i'm probably just gonna skip out on the yankees/mets game and do both MSG shows, assuming i can get tickets to both, of course.

i don't see anything listed as far as pricing goes...
