Official Tour Setlist/review Thread 2009/2010

Recommended Posts

so... nothing new last night... that's a shame.

 

Hopefully Kelowna tonight gets something new, doubting it though.

 

Can't wait to hear these new songs live...

 

 

Which tune sounds better live than on record, from Vancouver?

Kelowna show is cancelled, venue doublebooked.

 

What I'm wondering is if there is any sort of "intro", like when he used Harold Wood during the In A Coma tour, or if they just come out and start playing.

Come out and play.

 

Actually it's kinda cool, some of the shows Matt has opened with songs consisting of him starting on just an accoustic (empty's, silent army) So it's dark with just the sound of Matt playing acoustic, then a spotlight hits just him, after a few minutes the band joins in it's really a cool effect. Also at the end of the show, either the last song of the main set or the last encore e has been ending in reverse. So the band stops and the lights go down to just Matt playing solo in the spotlight which works great when he's done it with "weapon" and Empty's Theme Park.

Ok, that's frickin' sweet. But now I want to stop reading this thread, I've still got a bit over 3 weeks until I see him and I don't want to know how the show is going to go before I get there myself. Dammit.

I get to see him one week from tonight! Very excited! I've never heard Avalanche live with a band, I really hope he plays it!

 

And I will always hold out hope for Near Fantastica!

Empty's Theme Park is excellent, it's really different from the album and it is definitly a major highlight of the show.

What!? Really? How does something like that happen? I mean, did Matt and company show up with their bus this afternoon and get the old "sorry, we double booked and the Kelowna Kettle Krooner Boys got here to set up first!"

 

Don't tickets get sold, and all that kind of stuff. You'd think somebody would have noticed that kind of thing.

Here's the setlist from Dawson Creek

 

On Nights Like Tonight

Avalanche

Volcanoes

Great Whales of the Sea

Born Losers

Load Me Up

Last Parade

A Silent Army In the Trees

Black Helicopter

Blue Skies Over Bad Lands

Apparitions

 

Giant

Weapon

I'm a Window

 

Some douche standing right behind me insisted on requesting white walls after every song, and it was funny as I turned around to leave he had this utter look of shock that the song wasn't played ;)

 

I thought that Volcanoes sounded exceptionally good live, and it was great to see Avalanche and BSOBL. Would have liked to have seen Empty's but everything else that I expected/wanted was on there so I was quite pleased.

Thanks for letting us know. That's actually a really decent setlist, IMHO. Any other comments on the show itself? We're all ears.

There were a few interesting moments.

 

The guy getting kicked out during the improv polka song was pretty damn funny. There was extended bit about the pirate story, and how it should be spun into a commercial for the Sunfire. At the start of Empty's the fire alarm went off, Matt stopped the song, there was a tad of banter, and started it over.

 

I throughly enjoyed the show. Sound was great, Matt's vocals were exceptional, and the crowd seemed to be having a great time.

Attended the 11/14 Edmonton show, fairly decent set list; but after 23 times it's tough to pick the best shows over 10+ years. As said in this thread, the new songs sound great live. Having Giant in the encore was a thrill, no matter how many times I hear that I love it.

 

I am just in the process of transferring the Mother Mother and MG recordings over so look for a sample later Sunday morning and the full MG show available a few days later.

As promised, here is a song sample from Edmonton November 14. "Great Whales of the Sea" can be downloaded from here: http://bit.ly/30OWUL. To save on my bandwidth I uploaded it as an MP3 (4.5MB), but the whole show will be seeded in FLAC.

 

EDIT:

 

how's the sound quality of the boots?

 

I think my recording was fairly good. I have recorded at this venue many times and found my spot last night to be pretty optimal for sound. I had some talkers around me for some songs, but the mics may not have picked that up (it is usually never as bad as I think it is). This song sample was EQ'd with Har Bal so it makes it sound a little brighter then the original recording so I will spend some time doing that to the whole show (assuming it doesn't make it sound worse).

As soon as I get home from the show tonight, you guys will get a setlist!

 

 

I am glad you'll be there. I can never remember the set lists once I leave:)
