Oh that sounds as a great show ... How lucky you are j !

We are also lucky, now we knwow from the setlist the tuning of Robert's guitar on A Boy I Never Knew ! Actually it's "simply" tuned one tone lower than on a standard guitar.

I would beg that the "technical difficulties" are linked to that tuning ...

I'm curious if that extended bit at the end of A forest was leaning towards Forever or really just some jamming going on to close out the song?   

I was waiting for it, but it always had the Forest bass line going.  I can post a sample tomorrow (the video is uploading right now and is 150mb +....and you know as well as I do how fast Hampton's upload speeds are :roll:)

Thanks for the info and the upcoming video  :smth023

Not all Hampton's are that bad.  My poor speeds were happening at the Airport Hilton in SLC.  Their excuse, too many businessmen  :roll:

About The Boy I Never Knew, did RS really say that would be the only time they play it in the U.S.?

At the show, I thought he said that it would be the only new song they were playing tonight.  @crowbi- check your email

that's a special double-opening, doing both 'out of this world' and 'want' back-to-back.

agreed about porl: it's better to be up close, to really catch him well. enjoyable.

it certainly looks like they have woken up/are waking up from sleep since the euro tour...
i was certainly expecting much more static setlists for the US tour too.
i hope they won't go back to being static when/if they start touring for the new album.

j, thanks for the pics.

Glad you had a great show in Houston j!  Awesome set-lit & ABINK, I'm surprised they played it, I didn't think they would.  And your pictures are great in the gallery!  Thanks for sharing!  :smth023
It's a perfect day to throw back your head
