I really don't know why they bailed at the last minute on Bullet/Troubles. That would've been perfect.

Agreed. Imagining Bullet/ Troubles/ Streets combo. Thinking of all the great segues into Streets over the years. I bet they could've come up with some magic there with a beautiful Troubles outro.

In the spirit of baseball season, if I had my line up card out and using tonight's setlist as it was played, I think a good slot for The Little Things would be between Pride & Streets at the 6 spot. I don't care for Pride/ Streets combo as much as a mournful or sorrowful song before Streets. Plus it would be ballsy of the guys to move it up that far but still a safe spot squeezed between two warhorses.

The armchair setlist critique in me wishes they still played the new song, but it looks like LA got a great show.

Also, I approve of the City of Stars snippet

But that isn't what I'm saying. I'm saying I do t care where TLTTGYA is, it should be there, and the fact that it isn't can't mean anything good

I would be worried if this was the 2019 untitled world* (*=North America and Europe) tour and they dropped it, but it's The Joshua Tree tour....no biggie....it'll 99% likely be back in the setlist tomorrow.

Dan and friends who think Little Things not being played at one show is a sign SOE has been canned, you can calm down.

It was on the printed setlist after Bad.

The band just decided to play I Will Follow instead on the spur of the moment.

Bad was supposed to be played second to last?

It's all lipstick on a pig. I just got back from the Rose Bowl. The b side tree songs were cool for me to see but other than that it was weak.

Opening with SBS doesn't work and the sound was muddy until WOWY then it got muddy again later.

I didn't think it was possible to do a bad rendition of Ultraviolet but there it was. The randomness of the encore was stupid but at least they played Bad.

Sorry my review is so negative. It was great to see them again but....

Yes. The only difference between the printed setlist and what they played is IWF instead of Little Things.

Huh, so much for what Travis thought he heard then. He thought they were having tech problems early on.

Having gone to the show, this thread is pretty funny in hindsight. I gave up on the possibility of Bad myself, but after hearing ASOH, RTSS, RHMT, Trip, One Tree Hill, Exit, Mothers, Miss Sarajevo and Ultraviolet, complaining about anything would have been fucking stupid.

So that's who it was. That fucker. He really ruined the Lumineers last song, which happens to be a favorite of mine. Distracted everyone, no one was paying attention. What a fucking attention-whoring loser.
