    I think Hello Again makes for a great opener regardless of the circumstances. For the first show this year though would be unreal

    I've always been a huge advocate for Squirm openers. People say Hello Again, but besides those words, isn't that song about a dude killing his girlfriend?

    Squirm's lyrics are actually relevant to what has happened this last year. Through all the anger and division and uncertainty, we're all going to be there--together--and for that time, despite our differences, we'll all belong.

    Re: Opening Song of 2021 Tour

    The buildup of Squirm makes it a fantastic live song.... however

    It's way too slow/ depressing when the opening chords/ drums start. I do not want this to open the tour after 16 months off lol. People won't freak out when Squirm opens.

    If any of these songs open, the crowd will flip:

    Bartender
    Ants
    Two Step
    BOWA
    Granny

    I prefer "ominous and mystical".

    You're right. I personally like the slow buildup to when those horns finally hit, but it doesn't have the "pop" that this moment calls for.

    So glad I’m not only one who has pondered this more than is likely normal.

    For me, that first song is less about the meaning or lyrics and more about the feel. I think the opener should be something joyous. We know Dave usually paces himself, but in this case I’d like to see them just bust out something very upbeat and happy. So my choice is Rapunzel. PNP is a nice intro and then that whole song is just 6 minutes of joy. And of course they could just unload on the outro.

    Hadn't considered this, but count me in for a rapunzel opener. I know you said you didn't care about the lyrics or message, but ironically, not sure we can do much better than the opening line of PNP. Also yeah, jam would be a face melt, totally satisfied if this is what we get in July.

    I think Too Much would be my choice, for some reason I keep going back to that, gets going immediately, song everyone knows and can get excited about right off the bat.

    I had originally thought So Much to Say>ASTB>Too Much would be stellar.

    As long as they come out of the gates throwing haymakers, I'll be happy.

    Yep, I think itís perfect.

    Also, any word on if Raleigh might be streamed? Assuming interest would be VERY high.

    Show was amazing... but the world went downhill after that night.

    I am all for a curtain drop with Two Step opening. Or Ants.

    Re: Opening Song of 2021 Tour

    PNP would be a cool and fitting opener they could either go straight into Rapunzel which would work well or they go into another big upbeat hit song and throw everyone a curveball.

    What songs could they realistically transition into from PNP that would work musically and fit the moment?

    The more I think of it, Dave isn’t going to do something out of the ordinary. Probably OSW

    It will be Louisiana Bayou Bc Dave wants everyone to understand that the same songs you got tired of hearing in 2018/2019 are coming back at you, lol.

    HAHAHA I came here to say that exactly. Standard One Sweet World opener and because it seems fitting and meaning more being the first show and song back.

    Granny, Billies, & maybe even JTR if using 12 string for PNP.

    PNP>Ants would be a great upbeat curveball that would get a huge pop.

    PNP with the curtain up.

    CURTAIN DROPS ONCE THEY GO INTO ANTS.

    I am all for this.
