IWF makes the most sense. They almost always play that in the first 3 songs and it's def the most high energy song of the early singles.

I don't see IWF as an opener. There's no suspense or build up in it. It's a song that just starts.

Works for me if it opens.  I believe it fits the theme.

They might play it for a few dates and then ditch it.

Two trains of thought on this.

Firstly, too much nostalgia in a show that is celebrating a 30 year old album! Really?
or
This is a tour that that band simply had to do due to the political climate which has come full circle. SBS is as political as it gets.

I'm not saying that I am ecstatic at the choice, only that it does fit in with either theme.

Just because they've started their rehearsals with SBS doesn't guarantee that they'll start the shows with SBS.  Time will tell  :)

apparently some people just hear a song being rehearsed once and say "THEY'RE OPENING WITH THAT?!?!"

Can you please add the word "Spoiler" to the title of threads like this? I'm seeing the Seattle show Sunday and have tried not to know anything about what to expect. Thanks.

Doubt if they'd open with this one.  It's more of a song to build up to.  "A Sort of Homecoming" makes a lot more sense.
