Opening Song of 2021 Tour

Feels like a pretty amazing moment, post-quarantine, first show in over a year...

What are your predictions for the opening tune in 2021?

I'm a sucker for Ants and the snare intro would be pretty rad. Will be happy to hear anything, but curious what you all think...

    Would love it to be Ants even though I won't be in Raleigh. I could see One Sweet World as well.

    Two Step. I feel like the first song back has to be a classic and that build up of the intro would be so cathartic as a return of live music.

    Prelude > Ants (no snare intro) like Bristow 2013

    Would take Hello Again, Granny, Two Step, anything solid really. Ants would really blow the place up though.

    I think it will definitely be a classic. Something that gets the crowd really going. Nancies -> Warehouse would be nice.

    Selfishly, I donít want OSW. Rashawn ruins the intro when he goes too high and it sounds rough. Plus, itís opened the most shows for me.

    I know everyone wants a BIG opener. Ive said this before but I really think a more powerful opener would be Dave solo Singing From The Windows (or whatever) > Big full band song.

    Granny would be my choice.

    OSW would be my bet.

    Start it out with the Ants snare intro! Drop the lights, stand on stage for a couple minutes which will feel like an eternity and then have Carter hit the snare. The place would absolutely erupt.

    But there are so many great choices. I hope Dave picks one. I can't wait to be there for it!

    One sweet world, everyday, most likely something they open with all the time.

    Hello Again would be good just for the title. The song wouldn't make much sense though. I would say it should be Granny, no doubt.

    Granny or One Sweet World.

    My guess is OSW

    I love me some OSW, but as an opener in this situation I think it would underwhelm me. I want them to come out and hit us in the face right at the start...this is the ultimate moment for me in knowing we've broken through this madness that is COVID. Help me party!

    Exactly. Plus I think it's just about the most predictable opener at this point. I just checked my stats and was actually shocked to see that it was only my second most seen opener (after Pig somehow)

    Getting chills just reading the responses and thinking about what that opening moment will feel like for all of us. I would love to see something like The Stone played first, but my bet would be One Sweet World. Ants would be epic.

    wait, hold up. Your first show was in 2014 and Pig is your most-seen opener?!?!?

    Yea, idk how that happened either. I think I've been very lucky with what I've been able to catch for only starting in 2014: DMBAlmanac.com/Member.aspx?number=23499

    I just checked again and technically one of those Pig openers is a 2014 set 2 opener, so you could argue it's really tied with OSW and Squirm. All of them only 4 times though, so I've generally had pretty diverse openers in my 38 shows.

    Ants would just blow the roof off
    Granny would be fitting
    Hello again with the Live trax 8 Intro would also work well with the build up.

    I love when they walk out to the stage and that moment but the screen was also cool in summer of 08, spring of 09. They will get it right on this opener and I can’t wait!

    Whatever they do, I hope they do a nice, 3+ minute trippy buildup. Just let dave strum away and chant into the mic. Let Carter do whatever it is that he does. Let Tim make weird noises.

    I think the energy and tension will be so high at that point that whatever they do, the place will go bonkers.

    Anything loud would be great.... only cool thing that would be quiet is if dave comes out just himself and does the windows song but that can be done E1


    Ants would be sick... hello again, grey street, Billies - anything that takes off....


    One Sweet World would be the most predictable and underwhelming thing.. again.. not gonna complain about sets this year cause ill take what i can get but its after a pandemic.. cmon dave be cool

    Lights go down.

    Carter walks out alone. Starts the ants marching snare intro.

    One by one all the members walk out and join in.

    Dave walks out last and they bust into it.

    Place erupts.
