27 songs I'd say very good. the crowd was ok except for a group of people in front of me. very loud. Dave even made fun of them. they kept yelling for #42. "What is that all about" dave responded. Then he told all the big voice guys to keep it down. Made a remark about when havin sex if you were to just hold your emotions in it would be so much better. Dave said it better than I just did but I'm sure you get the point. dave didn't talk too much but it was still groovy to see him and Tim. It was my first show of theirs since I missed IU because of the ice but lets not dwell on that because last night was well worth the wait.
Great show. The crowd was much better than I expected. They only got outta hand during Ants. What is it about that song? But, Dave quickly jumped into Christmas Song, to settle the masses. I thought the crowd was well behaved during a lot of the quieter tunes too. Dave has a fun way of ragging on the noisy people (with the rest of the crowd's approval of course). One time he blatantly told some guy to shut up and the crowd roared. The tunes: The setlist speaks for itself. Whew! They didn't play a "hit" song until Too Much, and the acoustic version of this song is great. Some guy kept yelling "42" and Dave said the dude was confusing him. "What's 42?" Dave then played Crazy and Little Thing, probably hoping to shut the guy up. It worked. I'm not sure of the name of the Marilyn Manson tune. The lyrics went something like, "Prick your finger; the deed is done. The moon is eclipsed by the sun"... and then something about better days. The song was beautiful. I thought it was a Pink Floyd song. It sounded a lot like Echos. After they played it, Dave joked and said, "I bet you'd never guess that was a Marilyn Manson tune." He then went on about them. "Prettiest damn song you've ever heard, and it's a Marilyn Manson song!", Dave said. He was a riot. Dave also told a new story about Cave Crickets and of course crap ;-) One more thing. They actually played the tune On Broadway. Usually, it's just a tease, but at the end of Recently they started it up and played it by itself for a bit.
