    welcome to ants!

    what was the date of conan o'brien?



    edit: 12.18.02 - in that case Conan's was the second performance, because the first was in Albany and last full one was in Rochester, I went to both.

    http://www.dmbalmanac.com/TourShowSe...9&id=453055923

    Song History This feature song made its debut in 2000 as a frequently played feature with alternating lyrics. In fact, it was the most played song of the 2000 summer tour at 46 of 52 shows.
    In 2001, this song took a back seat to the "Everyday" songs yet was still one of the top 5 openers of the tour.

    After it's release on "Busted Stuff", the extra chorus at the end omitted, the song came back with a vengeance in 2002 with static lyrics and went on to be the second most played song three tours in a row.

    On 12.17.02, the song was played with the first chorus and second verse omitted and was played that way on all performances for over a year. Starting in the Summer 2004 tour, the song began to be performed in the following form: 1st verse, 1st chorus, 2nd verse, 3rd chorus. This is known as the truncated version and is implied from herein unless otherwise indicated.

    Re: last verse of grey street

    From what I can remember, Dave had to cut that stuff out to stay within his allotted time on Conan's show. After he did that and played the truncated version, Dave seemed to like it, and it's stuck ever since.

    I *hate* the truncated version. I'll still enjoy the song live, but in my mp3 player it's studio or nothing for Grey Street.

    i think it would be a good thing for the guys to b ring back this year, what with all the other returns this year, why not bring back verse 3?

    Someone tweeted Fonz: "@SLessard Did you enjoy the sign for the 3rd verse?"

    He responded: "“@ABCanan Yes, and the idea has been suggested"


    Last time Fonz suggested something, we got Halloween in Hartford. This seems promising!

    There's talk of the third verse returning every year. Never does. I'll gladly be wrong, but I doubt it.

    I think Dave tweeted in 2008 or 2009 that it was left at the airport.

    The 3rd verse would be awesome, and I'd be a greedy little pig in wanting them to slow down the tempo just a bit. These days the band plays Grey Street (and other older tunes) like they've been taking Jessie Spano's "caffeine pills".
