JT is so fecking hot I can't stand it.

OMG! @ Simon's pants. I have been a JT fan since 1985 (longer than U2 ). Can't wait to see them with a friend on 5/27.

I saw them in Vancouver last Tuesday, and they were awesome!

I don't remember the exact order, but they definitely played the following:

Red Carpet Massacre
The Valley
All She Wants Is
Skin Divers
Nite Runner
Falling Down
Warm Leatherette
Wild Boys (including Simon shoving his hands down his pants several times, presumably to re-arrange? Who knows. It made us laugh, though!)
Hungry Like the Wolf
Save a Prayer
Girls on Film
Planet Earth
Reach up for the sunrise
Notorious
A View to a Kill
The Reflex
Come Undone
Ordinary World

And of course they ended the show with Rio.

The opening band was Your Vegas, and I was really impressed. I was expecting to think they sucked, but I enjoyed their set. I'm definitely going to find their album eventually.

Here are 3 of the best pictures I got of the night:

Glad you got to go, Thora!

I had an okay time at the Seattle show. I was really disappointed with the venue - considering I paid $80 for my ticket and was fairly close, I wish I'd known most of the seating was flat. I stood on my tiptoes most of the time, craning my neck to see anything. That pissed me off. I wouldn't have spent money for a seat that was somewhat close if I knew it would be like GA.

But the show was fine. I was really happy they played "A View To a Kill" and "The Reflex" because they didn't play those two last time I saw them.

I enjoyed most of the new songs - I thought "The Valley" was a fantastic opener. I even liked Your Vegas, even though they were so loud my ears nearly bled. Thanks for the free ear plugs, WaMu Theater! It's the one nice thing I can say about your venue.

There was no pants splitting at the show, they were just tight. Like too tight.

STILL for the setlist woman!


you sneak in here without giving more details or a setlist.... I am locking the door to this thread until you come back with a setlist and some details...

Since I won't be going to a show anytime soon....whats the deal with the last pic---where it looks like they are standing at podiums?

Glad to hear the new songs sound good live. I Nite Runner.

Last week I went with my friend to the casino where they played in San Diego. I didn't have a ticket, I only went along for the ride. While in the casino, when the doors would open, I could hear and see bits of the show.

My friend said it was good, but sort of suffered from "the hits" setlist. That's what I don't get about some long-running, established bands. With such vast back catalogues, they play the same 8 or 9 hits over and over, tour after tour. How many times can a person hear "Rio", "Hungry Like The Wolf", "Reflex".

How about some "Sound of Thunder", "Nightboat", "American Science", "Serious", "Lonely In Your Nightmare", "My Own Way", "Love Voodoo", "Hold Back The Rain", or "Shadows On Your Side"

Let's mix it up boys!

It's probably a similar argument to the one the diehard U2 fans have here.

"Can't they drop With or Without You or Pride????"

I would guess a big part of their audience these days are people who loved them in their heyday and haven't followed their career very much after the 80s ended. They might enjoy whatever they're playing off the new release they're touring behind, but they're really there for nostalgic reasons and want to hear those hits.

But I'd go nuts to hear Hold Back the Rain!
