I FINALLY finished downloading a torrent of that pro-shot Paris BitUSA concert. It took me nearly a week to download that sucker. But it was worth it - it looks awesome!
I've only watched the first hour of that concert so far, but Jesus, Glory Days is hilarious.

I like Mary's Place. I don't really know why, and can def. understand why people hate it.

BTW...Who the F*** is Mary ANYWAYS?

If Mary is his sister, I don't want to know

But she is the Queen of Arkansas...is that where her place is?

Oh, I hope not. I went to Arkansas once. Once was enough.

I have to drive through arkansas long-ways to get home from texas(or to go to texas) and all I can say is that if Mary IS the queen, she sucks pretty hard-corp at her job. F'n boring backwards state right there

He stopped playing it in 74 and didn't play it again until 2001 at the Christmas shows. Wasn't played outside of Asbury Park at all until 2005 and only 12 times outside of NJ since then-so it was definitely a great treat on this tour if you got to see it!

Killing Floor database: query and searches online is a great place to check when a certain song was played
It's a shame that they dropped Thundercrack from the current tour after the first dozen or so shows. I understand most people don't know what it is and therefore it doesn't get the same reaction as Kitty's Back or Rosalita, but damn, what an awesome song.

i think the problem with thundercrack was it's location in the setlist... songs that people don't know tend to drain the energy out of the crowd. i thought the energy came down for american land at the garden show in october, as well... but in march at the nassau coliseum the crowd seemed much more into it. maybe it was 'cause more people knew it by then, maybe it was near st. patrick's day, maybe i was more drunk... i dunno.

Yeah, that's a good point. Perhaps the encores wasn't the best place for it. Maybe near the end of the main set would have been better.

I heard Mary's Place this morning on the drive in and thought of this thread.

I just wish these new dates would be confirmed already.
