Basskid, thanks for setting this up and updating the setlist.

No problem.  There are a bunch of other people that used to do it, but I don't know where they've gone since the shut down.  I started following these setlist threads back at the beginning of 360 when it was mostly all we had.  It was amazing to get to sort of enjoy the show through text updates and occasionally a bad audio feed with a bunch of other fans!  Nowadays it's a lot quieter on here because people can listen or even watch all the shows, but it's still fun to have!

OMG, RFD! I'll be watching as soon as I have a chance, but I'm dying to know if it was any good or disappointing.

Live LIAWHL vocals also is a surprise.

I really hope by the time they hit Montreal they keep Red Flag Day.  Really hope they also drop 13 as a closer  (it's a dud closer) and sing You're The Best Thing full band electric and not acoustic.  It would be also nice if they add back Wild Horses to the encore.

I tried to find LIAWHL on YT for May 8 but not having luck. May 7 yes but not 8. If anyone comes across a vid I'd appreciate a link. Curious about the potentially live vocals.

Horses needs to come back. It might become a multiple night appearance type thing.

The sound was better than the first night. RFD totally rocks. The bass sound and jamming is incredible. Adam was very prominent throughout tonight. I thought Acrobat was tighter than the night before. Get Out of your Own Way and American Soul are impressive; was not enthusiastic about those two before seeing them.

Still think they need to change the encore- needs more upbeat song. LIAWHL needs the impact moments tweaked a bit. The band is playing real well for the beginning of the tour. Very excited for Vegas! I hope they pull out ‘Showman’ in Vegas.

RFD should be a mainstay throughout the whole tour! Adam is a bass god!

Yeah Bono pointed at Adam during the song to put him in the spotlight.

Sigh. I love Adam.

Was Larry wearing glasses?
