Tonight was the night.

No disappointments. None. Perfect. The band is still full of sloppy motherfuckers who joke around on stage and continually surprise you. The show was pure fire from beginning to end, starting with a string of fast rockers before calming down with a lovely version of Androgynous. The obvious favorites were all there, though we didn't get one of Unsatisfied/Sixteen Blue/Answering Machine. In general, I thought Let It Be was underrepresented and far too much time was spent with Tim, but those are small complaints. I'm so happy. What a terrific performance; I hope they don't take such a long break this time.

The setlist from their Toronto gig is similar to the one we got, with the notable exception of Hold My Life, which was part of our "encore." That one and Can't Hardly Wait were pure joy.

It is, actually. Leaving out Answering Machine and Unsatisfied in favor of Swinging Party and Waitress in the Sky is, uh, not a bright idea IMO.

Little Mascara and Left of the Dial tho

Ok, I'm all in favor of ditching swinging party.

SEVEN songs from Tim and only three from Pleased To Meet Me = FAIL.

LOL Swingin' Party.

There was a setlist that The Replacements could have played that would have made me the happiest person on earth for 90 minutes...

...that wasn't it.

I'm not the biggest Replacements fan to begin with, and Tim is my least favorite of the three I've heard.

That being said, they sounded amazing, I didn't know most of the songs well, but I liked what I was hearing. I hate "Androgynous" though, so that was when I ended up heading out of the crowd and chilled in the back. Came back for Alex Chilton to the end, but I needed to sit down. That whole weekend was a bit too much.

I almost feel bad now, for seeing them, when some of you who want to may not be. You would likely have had a much better time than I did. At least I got to hear Alex Chilton, I Will Dare, Can't Hardly Wait and Bastards of Young.

We actually got four: I Don't Know, IOU, Alex Chilton, Can't Hardly Wait. But I agree with the premise of your post. Never Mind or Valentine would have made my night.

perfect balance for all the set-list bitching.

Great band get back together after 22 years and play their songs. Result: 55 posts. 35 are complaints.

Good work guys. Good work.
