Anyone there yet. By my drunken calculations from the uk they should be hitting the stage soon.

I am not the biggest fan of the design either.

They also played My Sharona by The Knack.

Shorter set then I was hoping for,but great floor energy from the crowd. The floor literally bounces and Dave was saying it shakes the stage. Pretty cool.

Surprisingly short set compared to recent shows and nothing different either.

Would have been great to see in the new year with the boys though!

Yeah, short set and no surprises, but the energy was amazing. I hadn't seen the guys have that much fun in awhile. And as mentioned, the bouncing floor was really cool. You can really shake the house. Fantastic venue. A night I won't be forgetting anytime soon.

Show was advertised as starting at 10pm, it got pushed back to 10.30pm on the day and it was almost 11pm by the time they came out.

It was a very standard set list - nothing special - just a pared down tour set list but fun never the less. Pat was having a ball.

Wasn't a fan of the bouncy floor, was a few points where it felt like I would bounce over the barrier, and it was scary when the barrier almost tipped over.

How was his voice? Kinda assuming that was the reason they didn't go crazy, with big shows coming up this month.

For Taylor's intro Dave said Taylor sings a song called Cold Day in the Sun but Taylor thinks the fans don't like it. Which led into Under Pressure.

Couldn't help but laugh. Only took them 13 years to figure it out.

I feel a little less gutted about missing the show now. Didn't you expect a few changes for a NYE show? They could have tossed in a rarity or 2. Or maybe I'm trying to convince myself

We got a longer show and better set list for the Anthem shows imo.

I always hope for the rarity but have stopped expecting them at this point. Come Alive would've been a nice nod to the choir video. But I definitely wasn't expecting the shorter set. They didn't even skip anything on the setlist except the "?" before Everlong. So it was always planned to be a shorter set and not cut due to time.

I found it so bizarre that they brought the backup singers all the way to Vegas for one song. I thought Dirty Water is all but guaranteed these days.

I think they had a curfew - not by the venue but from the wives
