Best "Second Slot" Song (SPOILERS)
« on: July 20, 2015, 11:48:05 AM »
Which song works better in the second slot of the set?

As much as I loved seeing "Gloria" in Chicago 3, "The Electric Co" just seems to elevate things to a whole 'nother level, and that's only seeing it through YouTube videos. I can't imagine the energy being there in person!

even though i have yet to hear a bootleg or see a show, i'd go with gloria based on previous performances it seems of an early slot/energetic show opener song.

I was there for the Glorias and was so emotional, ecstatic to hear it! Top tour experience for me.

Even so, ALL 3 songs are perfectly energetically, emotionally fitting. I call TIE!

Come to think of it, it seems awhile since I've heard OOC live.

I have avoided videos so far, but I really want Out of Control for my show because I've seen the other two played before.

I wish we could get all three! Shorten the middle set. Boot Real Thing and M-Ways and give us all three of these gems! These three songs are among the best moments of the whole show!

Without having actually heard all of the current performances (I saw OoC at the show I attended), I voted Gloria, just for the fact that it's been so rare, comparatively.  The other two have been fairly frequently featured in recent tours.  Other than one instance of Party Girl at a fan's request, I've yet to see anything performed from the October era.

I've only gotten Scarlet from October and IWF and OOC from Boy. I would have loved to have gotten Gloria or Electric Co this time, but at least I finally got OOC.

I chose Gloria but I really like how they change it up (wish they would even more!)

It would be great if they added Two Hearts Beat As One as well as mix in some other up-tempo early songs in that slot too like Street Mission, A Celebration, Seconds, and Like a Song and then swap out other songs.

Would say OOC because it's my favourite out of all of them, but The Electric Co. seems to have the most energy out of all of them this tour.

I'd love to hear the three of them played back to back, though the lads might need to take a break afterwards!

Saw the show 8 times and didn't get to hear Gloria. I thought might get lucky for he 2 shows  in Toronto, but it didn't happen.  Voted Gloria just based on the youtube footage.

Very good idea, especially for cities getting more that 2 shows.  They can very well drop Vertigo and I Will Follow and play Electric Co, Out of Control and Gloria together.  Place would go ballistic.  They can easily play Vertigo near the end if they feel they can't leave it out.  They should actually try this during their 8 shows at MSG.

So true. I was already predicting what we'll get tomorrow night, is it OOC's turn for the rotation? Or maybe something new perhaps? hmmm
