Re: US TOUR DATES

So why would he have scheduled all these multiple-night runs in the first place? Especially to start the tour, AFTER A SLIGHT BREAK, with three in a row!! He should limit himself to 90 or 100 minutes those first few nights, though i imagine the casinos will help rein him in for length of performance.

Re: Name your 3 songs to revisit this tour

I'd love to see the return of the rocking version of Complicated Shadows. And since we have the extra singers, how about Let Them All Talk. And Stations of the Cross, just cause I like it so much. I too love the original rocking CS. ..the Sugarcane version wasn't bad. I also loved the one from, dum...

How about some more up tempo surprises, e.g:
Beaten To The Punch
You Bowed Down
No Hiding Place


Great choices...would love NO HIDING PLACE.
p.s. i don't find ROSE to be a ballad however.

I don't think we have thieves here, but they do always recommend NOT showing barcodes of tix online like this. Which does remind me to give my usual tour spiel...anyone picking up stray discarded hard tix at the shows, can kindly mail them my way. Thanks, ba

Name your 3 songs to revisit this tour

From my first listen to LOOK NOW....(as both BURNT SUGAR and UNWANTED NUMBER came to life on the 1999 LONELY WORLD tour), i am left to recall one of my VERY favorite new ones from that year: I DREAMED OF MY OLD LOVER. yes, it was released ten years later on S, P & SC...yet, I can't help but feel...

A music student I ain't! However, consider this: https://petercrosbie.net/2016/08/24/why-a-middle-8-isnt-a-bridge/ That said, EC clearly uses the term 'bridge' for middle-eight on 'Flutter and Wow' (yelling 'to the bridge!' apparently spontaneously).
