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!
You are completely correct, and I understand that.

I just remember when they first reunited as the original 5-piece and that first reunion tour they opened with "Friend of Mine"

Now THAT'S what I'm talking about!

I haven't followed them very closely in ages - I was a fan in the late 80's. I was there to see the hits, but like you said, I definitely enjoyed hearing the newer stuff. I'd never had the chance to see them on tour back then, so I was definitely there for nostalgic reasons.

can i just say this in regards to their setlists...i looked on their site and they had all the setlists posted. i'm not exaggerating when i say EVERY show is the exact same thus far. (except for chicago where they played the chauffeur, but that was in addition to all the usual shit. makes me wish all that much more i'd gone to chicago...oh well.)

that being said though, i had a blast seeing them. and i did loooove hearing last chance on the stairway, especially hearing it all dancy like that

Astronaut is MUCH better for me because Red Carpet Massacre was released during a very bad period in my life. Instead of elevating my spirits, RCM was just a soundtrack to it. Astronaut was one of the two best albums of 2004. The other being HTDAAB obviously.

*Friends of Mine* opening the 2003 tour. Yeah. That was AWESOME.
Their static setlist is lame. That is my only real complaint from this tour. Oh and the fact that Chicago got "The Chauffeur" and I didn't here in LA!!!

Astronaut is definitely a better album IMO. I enjoy some songs on RCM to a degree ( and some are good to work out too) but Astronaut was really great.

What a fantastic show! Despite not knowing a couple of songs and getting rained on (didn't bring my umbrella), it was great! They played pretty much all the hits including an extended version of Girls On Film with Papa Was A Rolling Stone tacked on and Simon introduced the whole band including the saxophone player and female singer. I was so happy they played both Ordinary World AND Come Undone! If they'd played Electric Barbarella, I would have been dancing with joy! Ended the show with an energetic version of Rio. Man, Simon sure does have fun on stage! He was making jokes, dancing and just having a great time! Oh and somebody threw a bra at him during Skin Trade. The whole band was awesome and lots of fun!

I thought you said you weren't gonna be up front for fear of being trampled or something.
