Lets see an official setlist! And maybe a review from the perspective of one of the youngins' who got in.

Man - if I were 15 seeing one of these shows, I'd pee my pants. I almost pee'd my pants at Dodger's stadium seeing them the first time, and I was 40 at the time!

pretty sure the first kids in line were about 16 years old, they totally scored.

can't review the show just yet, need more time. i drove home in silence because i just wanted to let it all sink in.

for now i'll say this, been going to foo shows since '95 and this ranks right up near the top of the 20 or so shows seen. can't beat foo's in a small club.

Ha, I did the same thing driving home to San Diego from Spaceland. I think I had about 45 minutes of silence with just the windows rolled down to help keep me awake. Felt almost "wrong" to try to play any music.

13. Pretender
14. My Hero
15. Generator
16. I'll Stick Around
17. Enough Space
18. Times Like These
19. Cold Day in the Sun
20. Big Me
21. Watershed
22. Long Road to Ruin
23. Skin & Bones
(OK, this is where I get confused on the order but I'm pretty sure this is it or very close)
24. Aurora
25. All My Life
-----------------
26. For All the Cows
27. Monkey Wrench
28. Hey JP
29. Everlong

Like I said, not exactly sure of the order at that part. Aurora was scheduled to be part of the encore but they threw it in earlier.

Thanks for the setlist - wow, quite a mix up of the order. And Long road to Ruin and Best of You.

I was about to think the band had given up on songs from the last two CD's except Pretender.

Two of my fav's are Aurora and Headwires. I am hoping Aurora sticks around for the proper tour and would scream my lungs out if they added Headwires.

I tried to keep track of the order...but gave up cuz my mind is old and has no room for much of anything anymore. I was going to attempt to keep a list via my mobile, but by that time the battery was flashing red and I wanted to attempt to get a few pix.

Glad we got to say hello at the end of the night...very nice to meet you.

Great show, great venue. There were two 16 year olds behind me last night, their first concert ever. I almost felt sorry for them, everything else will pale in comparison. Nothing like starting at the top though.

I really liked Arlandria last night and Aurora. Dave really seems to be into Aurora at these small shows, it sounded awesome every time. I was right in front of Chris when Dave said Butterflies and his eyes widened, then Dave said "you know it" and he just shrugged like I can figure it out. He was really watching Taylor to see where to come in at the beginning. Love he has Shifty on his Telecaster. Weird he was using regular Dunlop pics, I guess he ran out of the others. I like how they can just let loose and have fun at these shows, I hope they do more someday. I feel sorry for people who couldn't get into any of them, but they could never get all of the people into these shows that want to go, or it wouldn't be a small show.

Hell yeah I remember Aurora!

Definitely the first time Chris has played it live, he probably practiced it at some point since he joined though.

You too, Sara! Yeah, I was tired of all the bitching in the Dave Tweeted thread and couldn't believe nobody was really talking about the actual damn show!
