man, a steven/i am made of you medley...that sounded too good to be true.

i think the setlist is fine, not a fan of covers, but the alice set is ok...but if a couple of the songs mentioned here, whether it's i am made of you, hell is living without you or he's back could make their way in, it would make a huge difference.

hope the tour makes its way to australia next year.

That would be great, but I never did believe that this song could be back in shows. I never did, at least, not at the kind of shows I usually go.

I think the last time he played He's Back was on the Dragontown tour. I think he could very easily bring it back but I'm not gonna get my hopes up. Would be amazing though.

Would love for him to give albums like DaDa and Raise Your Fist a go. Raise Your Fist was such a great album tour I would have thought he would have brought back some elements from it by now.
And as for DaDa it would just be cool to try some of them live for the very first time .. Especially on a not so theatrical tour like this one, could see stuff like "Scarlet And Sheba" and "Pass The Gun Around" working somwhere

I think that is correct. I miss the 2000-2002 tours both of them were great, with awesome varied sets.

He's spoken very positively about both of those albums so I'm quite surprised that he never plays anything from either of them. Songs like Freedom, Roses On White Lace, Time To Kill, Fresh Blood, Former Lee Warmer and loads of others would be fantastic live.

The strain on the man and his voice over a tour must be incredible. Give the kid a break...



Mick Jagger, Brian Johnson, both older than Alice, don't stay still on stage, Ozzy, less than a year younger than Alice, he doesn't stay still either."

Actually, I never said anything of the sort, I was quoting a previous poster and was refuting the argument that age was relevant.

In was regluarly played at Swedish shows up until a few tours ago, normally in the encore.

That would really be stunning. I would be completely mesmerised by that. I almost wish I didn't know that was rehearsed seeing as it looks like we won't be getting it.

Who knows though? Maybe it will make it into the setlist at some point.

I actually don't mind the idea of the covers section. Quite looking forward to it. I think a lot of the negativity towards the covers section is misdirected rage at the lack of W2MN songs in there. Tommy can borrow my daughters keyboard if he wants to do Steven/I am made of you :)
