I also hope the reissuing of numerous albums lately will prompt them to revisit older material. Something like "hey, shit, Tomorrow was a really great song, let's play it again!"

And I just hope more classics go into rotation rather than being permanent fixtures.

Agreed As long as Streets is played when I'm there, I'm pretty much happy. Mayeb Pride as well

Found it Ax: http://www.ronaldvdberg.nl/RH2008TOU...nl/RH2008TOUR/

Took so long because it was so obsure. Had to search "thom sang" "words" "this is" "below average" on google to find it.

did you decide on a setlist beforehand?? Because it could have gone off the rails so easily. Especially if someone said "they're playing this" and then the next person said something different. and the time between songs.

This is a constant source of confusion to me as well. The fact that people who came in and called it out as bollocks were effectively ignored leaves me staggered.

It's because Rob was defending the reality of it. I loved that it only became universally unbelievable after Mofo.

Mofo is where they draw the line?

Thanks for that. I like their use of pie charts to illustrate the stats. Certainly some stuff to look into. The Personal Charts feature we have was inspired by a similar feature on a Pearl Jam setlist website.

Which I still find hilarious given that U2 soundchecked it on the Vertigo Tour and is a shitload more plausible than Flower Child or Exit!
