I should revisit this tour. I was kinda fatigued with boots after hearing so many 2000 and 2003 shows. I think I have a SF show, don't know which one though. Maybe I'll listen to it. I also have the two shows I saw this tour (Camden/Philly 2, and DC), but I don't think either are "must haves" from the tour.

Leg 1 is the weakest of the 4 legs, but Camden 2 is one of the better shows of that leg.

Why is this tour so good? Like it IS but what got into the band that made it so good?

Eddie probably started playing more guitar

Touring behind an album full of strong songs that worked well live probably helped but also the sheer length of the tour meant they really got warmed up in a way they haven't since; that doesn't really happen when they play a handful of shows every 6-12 months.

Dang I was listening to the Albany show on youtube and now I know what show the bumper comes from on Sirius XM before it plays their concerts (Where Eddie talks about how some people want to hear the classics, others want to hear the things they never play, and they should do a poll and see how many of the freaks are there and how many of the normal people are there)

Weird to be able to now know exactly what random show they took that vocal clip from

They practiced. S/T had them excited. I know Mike always talks up the new record like it's the best thing since Vs., but it seemed like they all felt they had made another great rock record and wanted to prove it. The loads of rehearsal had them stale on the east coast, but it paid off as they played more and more shows. They could drop anything in the middle of a setlist (ie. God's Dice at Gorge II) and it might rival the best versions they'd played in 6 years. I'm thankful to have seen so many shows that tour.

Like Birds in Hell said, the S/T songs were great live and always kept the momentum going.

I was at that Albany show; it was a lot of fun, even with crappy seats.

I was at that Albany show as well. One of my favorite shows I've been to, not the best, but a definite favorite. Just a really fun evening. Like others have mentioned, the S/T songs work great live. And they kept the energy going through last portions of the night. Songs like Grievance and Sad mixed in with the Avocado stuff just kept the whole night moving.

I thought "Don't Gimme No Lip" was a turd when it came out on "Lost Dogs" but the live versions allowed me to appreciate what a fun and frisky little throwaway it is. I love it now and would love to see it at a show someday (thankfully I got to see "Mankind" last year in Moline).


Hey, so this happened at Wrigley last year. All that's left is "Sunburn" and I will have completed my trilogy of Stone-sung PJ songs. I'll be campaigning hard for that one in 2018.
