My favorite is when I create a smart setlist and specifically exclude rap, but then a song like Ben Fold's Bitches Ain't Shit cover comes on right after Iron & Wine or something.

No, what's lame is that you have to mention this in every single thread.

Yeah, I don't think they were doing Gloria much by leg 3 either. It's a shame.

On the plus side, they did throw in Fast Cars a few times.

yes and it PISSED ME OFF that i missed out on it. i was unemployed during the entire vertigo tour, so i'm lucky i got to attend at all. and i am thankful i have very generous friends who will just give me a concert ticket and free room/board, food, etc. but i was bummed i got the stupid acoustic encore.

I saw them like 14 times in 9 different cities. That's just how I roll. You might take it upon yourselves to roll in a different manner. I'm ok with that.

pfan... not liking Kid A on first listen is not surprising at all. Give it at least 3 or 4 more listens!

Khan: I'm like you too. I doubt I can afford more than 2 shows for U2! Unless I completely cut myself off of other artists' shows!

Elfa, are you proud that you only discovered crossfade playback now?

I've only seen two concerts in my life, so I'll take what I can get.

Don't make me list all the things you've admitted to not knowing about, Zoots. I do not want to have to do it.

I saw them 4 times on the Vertigo tour, in 3 different cities and loved every single one of them. Especially Discotheque during Toronto IV.
