Default Stranger Things Have Happened live?

Have they ever played this song live? If so does anyone have a video or recording?

Haha thanks I love that song. And yeah it's a shame they've never done it. I think it'd be cool as the first song of the encore with just Dave and Chris. Then change guitars and they could do Tired Of You together too.

Amazing track, and total shame they didn't add it to the acoustic shows back in '05/'06.

I loved the song from the first time I heared it, it's kind of weird to me that they've never played it live. Maybe Dave wants to save that for an upcoming acoustic tour? (fingers crossed )

Either way, my point is really that it is a total shame that didn't add it to any acoustic set - even for the next tour when they do that little set after the break - always the same couple songs - this would be far superior than the Dave Best Of You that he shouts thru.

Yeah during the ESP&G tour they did that mini acoustic set on the second stage and throughout they did the same songs every night pretty much. I remember posting at the time it was odd they didn't play this then. Maybe they didn't fancy playing the guitar parts live, I don't know.

Maybe it has something to do with the guitars, but I've learned how to play this song fairly easily (minus the solo) and I suck at guitar

Either way, it's a shame they've never played it, it's one of my favorites (if not #1) from ESPG

Yeah, it came out in 2007, which was around a year after the acoustic tour ended. Could easily see it fitting in that type of show though!

I can play the solo and if I can play it then shifty could in his sleep even if he hasn't played it since he recorded it.
