Little things was dropped last night. Is this a bad sign?

No, being at the show it was all about nostalgia...the band recognized that

Rose bowl is a show city. It will be played the second night to leave the city with something to look forward to. Bad and little things were actually printed on the setlist next to each other

Might only get played once in the cities that have two shows.

Regardless of how many shows they are playing in one city, you would think the new song is 'untouchable' due to the symbolism of what it means looking forward.

A real head scratcher that they removed it. Even if it comes back tonight.

Highly doubt it's dropped, I'd say there's a great chance we'll hear it tonight. But I don't like the inconsistency with the ending. Throwing I Will Follow in there totally off script is just bizarre and screams out, poor preparation

Fair point. I like the song so I hope I'm wrong here.

Seconded - I'd be disappointed if I missed it live on this tour and had to wait.....years to see it live.  It's a real grower is this one.

Bands change up closing songs all the time. I was at the concert last night, and I think I Will Follow was a better way to end the show than Little Things. LA crowds are usually pretty great, and as soon as the chords of I Will Follow chimed in everyone lost their minds. It was a great way to end the show on a high energy note.

But it's a song that has always been played at the start of every show? There's so much more material they could throw in if they really wanted to give a curveball

They could play IWF in their sleep, it's a bit of a lazy addition. But then, they *are* having to leave their comfort zone a lot this tour with the deep JT tracks, so.

I was at LA1 and was BUMMED to miss out on hearing it live. I am a parent, and with my kids' activities, there is no way I can make it back out to Pasadena today. ˇViva Periscope!

Yep, I'm hearing the band called an audible on stage due to the curfew--they didn't have enough time to play Little Things but IWF was short enough to be played. They ended the show at 10:58pm and curfew was 11pm.
