Though you're missing the Kunstmuseum apology thread, and mofo82's whinge thread. Not sure if we should count the latter, but I think the former should be included.

Now who the hell's going to put all that data together?

Also, I see I was actually the first to pass 300 in a thread, in TCATT.
I'm going to add the apology thread and the winge thread at the bottom as an asterisk. I just remembered to add My brother... from WTAHNN.

I unfortunately lack verification that this actually happened. I badly want it verified, as it would reduce the threat Pride poses to IWF in the total plays count!
if it's true, and at you and your plays count!

It just annoys me that Pride will likely pass IWF on the next tour as U2's most performed live song, because it won't actually be true. I know for a fact IWF will still be ahead of it, as its play count is artificially low due to missing early sets, but I'm not willing to just add it to every show lacking a set even if I think it's PLAUSIBLE that it was played.

259 in sexy peak is my top showing, eeking out my 257 from much earlier.

i'd love to see it put into a spreadsheet and stats kept on overall totals, individual tops, etc. i've missed 2 threads, during the time when my computer was broken

are these concerts where there is no recording available, or is it just no one's sat down and transcribed the setlist?

although the rule was more put in place because in fym, the op would post a news story, and then add a paragraph or something of their own commentary.

then someone would quote the whole bloody thing
