Question Why do you suppose...

Foo Fighters have not incorporated any of the songs off of St. Cecilia into their setlist? I just had a listen, and it is still pretty good. Surely the title track and Neverending Sigh would translate pretty well live, and I would love to hear the latter...

I know they did (or had listed) a couple of those numbers for the Cheese and Grain gig, but they have never surfaced again. The only one that really would not seem be a live song is Iron Rooster, but the rest seem playable to me. So what do you think the reason might be for their absence?

They soundchecked NS at the C&G & did Sean. Why they don't do more in their sets bugs me. I don't get it.

Mystery to me as well. They even teased NS at gigs before it was released, they seemed really keen to play it but then nothing, bar soundchecks.

I was just posing this question the other day without realizing the anniversary was coming up, and now it's nice to see a lot of others would like the same thing! 'TNS' and 'SB' kick my arse and it's a shame they haven't been played during any shows (besides that one soundcheck). Too many screamers?

I would also love to SC tracks, the title track was a fairly decent hit, wasnít it? I bet the audience would appreciate it, Dave would probably even get his nice sing-along.

Iíd love to hear any of the songs played live especially the title track and Neverending Sigh (a non-fade ending would be good), Seanís fun, too so Iím glad they played it a few times. I like that itís a song about touring with the Foo Fighters

Why on earth would you want to play any of arguably the best release since TCATS live??

Hell I'd pay full gig price to hear/watch them play just all 5 songs and walk off.

It's madness! TNS is possibly one of the best openers they've ever written, I reckon. Time to make a sign up for that at the next gig!

Except for a couple of new songs, they are very much a 'greatest hits' band these days, so they will probably mainly play the hits when they're not playing songs off the latest record.

I would love to see SC songs incorporated. Maybe next year.

Valid question.
The title track, Sean and Neverending Sigh would all be so good.

Maybe, when they do another acoustic tour in 7 years we will experience Iron Rooster.

This record was my running soundtrack this morning... I was wondering the same thing.

I'd love to hear St. Cecilia live...

TNS still gets plenty of airplay in NZ, up there with their top best of songs.
