    If I was you, I'd expect more Stand Up era songs to be brought back.

    The thread below you is "The band is HOT". So there's your answer.

    Squirm is weak? GTFO, setlists look great, and the band sounds great. I can't wait for my shows

    Every year with this crap, haha. Get over it, Dave is gonna do what Dave wants to do. The sets so far have been ok, better songs will come but definitely not regularly.

    The ABI was due to a fan holding up a sign.

    I think they're fine. With four producers on the new album (yes I still call them that) I would expect songs from across all of the catalog to be played, including ED and SU.

    Somewhere in the middle. But I like that things are being mixed up. The issue is if it will continue.

    I dont mind Stand Up being played.. take it out of the set closer spot though and dont play it every show

    Re: Anyone else think these setlists are weak

    Closing with Stand up is weak and dumb and no one likes it.

    I like everything else, especially the old school encores. She>Granny>Rooftop would be very enjoyable to me. I don't know what you're complaining about really, Squirm is a great song. You got BOWA, DIDO, YNK, STJL, Nancies>>Warehouse and Minarets all in the same show, that's cool, aaaand that encore is awesome.

    I recently watched "The Making of Stand Up (The Album)". You can tell in the video that the song seemed like such a good idea to the band when they created it.

    They did. However, it would be nice if Dave actively tried to plan creative nuggets like this for a show, not in reaction to a fan at a show.

    Well, Boyd is no longer on stage, so don't expect Spotlight any time soon.

    This. If you would have told me before the tour started that we would get Stand Up and Bayou 3/3 shows I would have been VERY nervous, but I'm happy that we are getting songs we haven't heard in a while, new interpolations, and great energy.

    I'm more excited for my shows than I was a week ago.

    Everyone complains they don't do enough for the fans, then they do something for the fans and we complain that it wasn't planned

    Personally, I love the sets. Bringing back awesome songs (DIDO, Hello Again, etc.) and they are sounding great. Can't wait for my shows.

    Closing a set with Stand Up is a slap in the face and everyone who sees it should get a refund.

    The sets have been good, granted it's a lot of stand up but that should be expected since they are working with Batson again.

    People putting too much stock into set closers. You all realize the band comes back out and plays more songs after that, right? Its not the end of the show.
