I always thought that COBL made a great opener, to be honest. Watch the Vertigo Chicago DVD, it's just an awesome opening.

Vertigo, on the other hand, was not a great opener. Probably better than Breathe though (even though I kind of weirdly like Breathe as an opener).

Yeah ... COBL could work well. The first concert for me it was Streets, that does not leave your system. I can still hear the intro ..... and Larry's pounding drums........

COBL isn't rock enough to open a show. An encore yes. The show itself? no way.

COBL is, sonically if not lyrically, a deliberate remake of Streets. I find it hard to believe it wasn't memory-holed after Vertigo tour.
