Still worth it. But as much as I wanted to hear Mysterious Ways, I'm still disappointed it was at the expense of Zoo Station, especially given the length of the sets.

And I'm sure it gets said daily, but damn near 30 years of material and they can't dust off more than 22 songs?
Yeah, what pissed me off is that in South America, they'd been doing ZS/Fly/MW/WOWY as the first encore. Then typically four songs in the second encore too. So the length we lost was in the encores; the main sets (except Auckland I) were the same length.

You'd think that if you're only working for a few hours on two nights every 3 days AT WORST and fixing your schedule so that you can do some sweet holidaying too, because you're an ultra-rich rock band who can dictate cushy terms, you'd at least be able to do a decent job and play over 2.5 hours.

my favorite part is how Steve keeps interrupting him throughout the show because he's just as pissed as Bruce is Clarence too. It's magnificent.

Ending of the show:

(crowd: ´No´) you, you don´t wanna go home ? (crowd: ´No´) but are you loose ? (chuckles)(crowd: Yeah´) are you loose ? (crowd: Yeah´) are you, what do you think, Steve, are they loose ? (Steve: ´I don´t know, I can´t hear them very well´) are you loose ? (crowd: Yeah´)....

The bass player. And as we were ranting in a previous thread, the only decent bloke (left) in the band, from what I saw in "Rockstar INXS".
