So, it's probably one more statistical weirdness that you got to see only one time an older opener, just like I got fucking Bee Girl, but no Rearviewmirror. Why Go and Release opened 2 out of 3 gigs I've been to, songs that are over 15 years old. And it was awesome!

Nice, Headache. Did you use one of those setlist stat generator things? I know they had one of those for U2, but had never seen one for PJ.

Anyway, I've seen 'em four times. And the opener at my first ever PJ show was fucking Do The Evolution. Which might still be the coolest setlist stat out of any of my shows. I don't know, but I'm guessing that's the only time they've ever opened with that song. (At least I hope it is, because that would be cool.) In a lot of ways, that show is still the most memorable of the four: it also had four very rare covers in Driven To Tears, Know Your Rights, Fortunate Son, and Blue Red Grey. And one of the few times they played Habit in the last 10 years. That was 4/23/03 in Champaign.

But the 5/17/06 in Chicago is my favorite of the four, and is probably the best concert I've ever been to. And, with that, I realize that it's now been four years since I've seen them. Fuck. That needs to change.

Nice. That's one of my favourite bootlegs, includes a rare version of Deep as well.

In comparison to Headache, my overall setlist stats are far less interesting, with 56 different songs heard over 3 nights, with 10 of them appearing on all three (Even Flow, Given To Fly, Corduroy, Small Town, Do the Evolution, Severed Hand, Better Man, Alive, Rockin' in the Free World, Yellow Ledbetter). They slightly vary less in Europe than in America though, although there were some Euro concerts with some pretty crazy setlists in the past (Marseille 2006 comes immediately to mind, with the inclusion of Fatal and Dirty Frank).

Listening to Philly IV now, the energy is amazing.

I've got 20 shows, with 2 more coming up on the 15th and 17th, so we'll just say I've seen a lot of Even Flow and a lot of rarities.

No.
The 3 Mansfield 2003 shows were no repeats (exept for Yellow Ledbetter on a whim), so I have a max of 18 Even Flows, Its probably 16, 17 or 18, I'll check and get back to you...maybe.

Ah. My jealousy knows no limits.

Oh yeah, I should add Education to the list of weird rarities I've managed to hear.

That list would be much shorter.

Just a hunch.

I've seen U2 three times as well. 38 different songs, which is actually not that bad, but it is important to note that they've toured two different albums, and two of the nights were in the same city. And I've seen Vertigo 4 times!

Edit: Now for the shocker, they've repeated 10 songs for the three times I've seen them, the same amount as PJ! Heh. The catch is, PJ always played 6 to 7 songs more...

The coolest thing (setlist wise) from my two U2 shows is that I saw the all-time debut of Your Blue Room. Which is pretty fucking cool.

But I think I remember those bastards Hewson and Headache saying they were at the show when PJ brought back Leash for the first time in forever. That would have been insane and trumps everything.
