Hi Frank,
I’m a 14 years old fan of yours from nearby Stuttgart (Germany). I have seen you and the Sleeping Souls in the LKA last October (my first show ever) and it was FUCKING AMAZING! I am going to see you again in Nuremberg next August and I am wondering if you could play I AM DISAPPEARED. I especially love the Show 2000 version of that song!

I'm not sure its every time but every time I have seen him Frank has played this as its a pretty constant permanent feature on the setlist much like Photosynthesis.

That said, he is very good at utilising his back catalogue so you can never really be sure, I'd love Four simple words to be a permanent feature, set in stone, with a legal contract binding it to every setlist ever but that's because of my own personal taste.

I actually like the changes every time, keeps it special, A certain band I also like have toured exactly the same setlist for just about their entire world tour which must be incredibly tedious for them.

EDIT*.After a quick research, I take it back, its not every gig, I just appear to have been really really lucky!

Hi Hellbound!
Thanks for your answer. I agree with you and I enjoyed every single song of the gig in Stuttgart last year. It’s just that I only have seen Frank once and he hadn’t played the song on that show. And here in Germany, I haven't got the chance to see Frank very often. That’s why I have this wish because it‘s one of my favourite songs!

And by the way - I would sign that FOUR SIMPLE WORDS contract too! :lol:

I've only seen Frank three times but I know he played I Am Disappeared at the last two shows ( a couple of weeks ago in St. Pete, FL and last October in Ashville, NC) And I'm pretty sure he played it at the first show too I just don't recall - in Ashville he performed it pretty much like the album and in St. Pete he changed it up a bit - this show was different - it started with just Frank on an acoustic for a 45 minute set. Then the Sleeping Souls joined him but they had more of an unplugged feel - all 5 of them were sitting the entire show, Frank only played his acoustic (and piano on one song) and even though lead guitar and bass were playing electric instruments it wasn't like the full-tilt distortion and jumping around / crowd surfing like the previous two shows.

When they started I Am Disappeared it was completely a Capella - beautiful harmonies - it sounded like all 5 members were singing. As the instruments were layered in it was a little more mellow, and tempo slightly slower - it was such a beautiful version and they put on such an incredible live show and I love the talking that Frank does in between songs. I hung out after the show and he and Ben were both gracious enough to speak with me - and Frank autographed my acoustic guitar - he has a really cool autograph and truly he is more kind

And I'm on board with the Four Simple Words petition!
