Agreed - Over the last week I have listen to all 4 studio albums again and SIFTW is a great album ...

What? Owned bones? What?
Owned didn't seem strong enough so I added a rhyme to indicate the superlative. I dunno, I'm a trendsetter I guess.

It's understandable if it's just for one tour I guess, but some of my favourite bands have been doing it for years, to the point where I no longer go to their shows.

One of the reasons Frank is so great live is that he always mixes it up. Would love to hear something like 'Wisdom Teeth' or 'Vital Signs' on the November tour.

Apparently they pulled out Vital Signs recently and were faced with a room full of people staring at them, as no one knew the song.
That's crazy, such a great sing-along. On the other hand it can be a good thing when a room full of people don't know the song. In Birmingham last year Frank played 'Must Try Harder' and it was just incredible. Obviously there were a few who knew it, but most didn't. You could hear a pin drop in the room as Frank sang. You could sense those who didn't know the song were clinging to his every word, as oppose to heading to the bar/toilet.

Still waiting for Hold Your Tongue at a gig: but they even Frank is not going to get the crowd going with that.

I stood on a chair with Frank and sang Ballad at his show in Bristol last year, one of the highlights of my year to be sure so i'll be very sad to see it go. However if it makes room for some other classics (ie every song) then it's all good!

Maybe because it was the last EKMB Tour show?
