Perhaps the first show ever he has not done BEG, Southern Cross, Fins, Cheeseburger and...OPH.
No. For starters, it was an off-tour show; he's been known to drop even "Margaritaville" during off-tour shows. Secondly, even on tour BEG and SC are dropped at least once or twice. "Fins" I don't think has ever been dropped from a tour show, nor can I recall CIP being dropped either. OPH wasn't played at all during the 1988 and 1989 tours, plus only occasionally during 1997â€”but yeah, for the last 15 years it's pretty much been a standard. SOASOAS would occasionally be dropped too, however it's been played at every tour show since 2005â€”looks like Jimmy swapped the rates he plays WDWGD and SOASOAS.
Anyway, enough of my setlist-know-it-all-ism. Sounds like you went to a great show.
Well if you want to put it that way then yeah. I guess I meant in general as his cruise control set list has been for eons. Not sure why he bothered with Volcano and Margaritaville even.
It was fun. He had a blast. I had a blast. But it's not something I'd want on record. The flat notes he hit singing are jarring at the least and embarrassing at the most. One of those shows that will always be better live, in the moment, than captured and watchable/listenable.
Not as bad but similar to The Rolling Stones' Shine A Light movie/soundtrack. Horrible.
