I am funny - I am all about album spoilers but last tour, I went off interference after the album drop and got back to it right after I saw my first show. Not to avoid setlist spoilers but just cause I wasn't hooked. But I loved the surprise that came with seeing them for the first time and not knowing what they were gonna play. (Part of it was seeing htem for the first time, period.)

So I think I'm going to try to avoid setlist spoilers and just buy up all the tickets I possibly can and then after my first show is a delightful amazing surprise I'll go analyze/get you to analyze what they've been doing, so I'm still up on the trends.

But I dunno why I feel differently about the album. I guess it's new music gimme gimme throw me a bone boys but once i've heard the album and have it to tide me over, I ultimately believe they are just best live so I want to have that live experience the first time through.

I admit, I'd enjoy surprises live. But here's the thing: even if I went to the very first show, I would still know what they've been rehearsing. So the surprise element wouldn't really be there anyway. Like when Gloria debuted on 30/03/05, I knew it was coming.

As for the album, after four years of no new music, I can entirely understand wanting some news, any news, any news at all.

I love how a poster I saw for a gig recently proclaimed that it was the band's "FIRST SHOW IN A YEAR!" as if that was a really long time to be off ...

Plus, coming from me, it all sounds kind of silly anyway.
You can't get to be a 74 with just your hand unless you do drugs. Even if you use a sheep, that's still only 1 point.

That was such a fucking good call that I'm not even going to attempt a comeback.

I'll pay attention after I see one show, so subsequent debuts wouldn't be a surprise if they'd rehearsed them and I'd heard.

On the other hand, I'm thinking that maybe I do wanna know what the standard set is, because when you KNOW you are hearing something rare, you go apeshit with joy. So if they play TUF (e.g.) for the first time on the tour at my show and I didn't realize how special it was...that'd suck. Or if I went off my rocker heart attack apeshit cause they played TUF...and and it turns out they play it every other night and I'm gonna see it 10 more times....
