Default No Skin and Bones???

Noticed on the most recent setlists that there has been a severe lacking of Skin and Bones. This is my wife's favorite song and has been dying to hear it live. They played it throughout most of the tour but with the recent US leg of shows it has been absent. Her birthday is right around the corner and she would love to hear it. Does anyone know why they aren't playing it anymore?

it doesn't really "work" at a stadium show and without the excess band members it really doesn't work.

my 2 cents.

Wrong Donnainavan . It sounds good with the 6 of them. They played it recently when I saw them and it sounded good. Maybe they think it slows the show down too much or maybe they are just giving it a break. Only Dave and Co. know.

I remember it from earlier in the tour. Did they replace it with acoustic Wheels? I'm loving In The Flesh and Breakdown is still in the set. Tomorrow night! Yay!

They played it during the iTunes Festival in Camden, this year. But it's rare.

I agree with donna, it's not the kind of song that works.

And even then it only works when there's a big fucking fight in the middle of it!

I'll never be able to watch Skin and Bones live ever again and NOT think of that moment. I'm so pleased that I was there to witness it in the flesh.

Please don't turn up a day late - there's a slight chance you might regret it Got no great love for Wheels but the acoustic version's way better.

Well I plan on being near the 2nd stage on the floor for the Garden show, and Wheels looks to be the first song for the encore. Guess I'll just be pissing myself like I did at Hangout Fest.

They played Skin & Bones in Denver a month ago and I shouldve known in St. Louis 2 months ago.

I think someone needs to fly me to a show soon so I can keep my monthly foo show fix
