    1. Paris - 9-11-2006, best version of RVM ever
    2. Toronto - (oddly enough for me again) 9-11-2011, granted it was a greatest hits night it was still cool seeing Neil Young come out to play Rockin' in the Free World
    3. Philly - 10-27-09, first night of "closing the Spectrum" shows - Down with Mike Ness, Push me Pull me, 1/2full..... Plus incredible energy as Phillys beat Yankees 1-0 and Eddie keep bringing out a ring girl with score announcements

    hard to choose as any show could be a top three show :)

    well I've only seen them 3x so I guess all of my shows. 8-) Wish I had 20- 50 shows on my resume' like some of you. :mrgreen: Jealous. :P

    I think Ed does a great Job of making the (majority) of the setlists fit the mood of the atmosphere and crowd.

    Houston 2000 Night 1 (Couldn't go to night 2) still pissed off at that actually.
    Anyhow, Night 1 had Long Road as the opener, and it was perfect.

    Dallas 2003: Alive as the opener, "arc" being performed

    Austin ACL 2009: Red mosquito (with Ben Harper), Mountain song (with Perry Ferrell), Present Tense, and then Ed Diving into the sewage mud bath we all had to encounter, and messing up his Devo t shirt. :mrgreen:

    Only six to choose and I feel like I'm not doing justice to the three I've left out but....

    1. Berlin 10 - The venue, the occasion, the fact that I travelled with no ticket in hand! Long Road, Push Me Pull,Pull Me, Immortality, Light Years, Low Light, Black, Comeback, Alive, YL. Amazing show?!

    2. Manchester 2, 12 - Great setlist, Go, I Am Mine, Wishlist, Daughter(WMA), Deep, Present Tense, Inside Job, Off He Goes, RVM, Hitchhiker, Sonic Reducer. Very fun night with a night 1 hangover!

    3. Belfast 10 - Another great setlist following a pretty safe one the night before in Dublin. Sometimes, Tremor Christ, No Way, Present Tense, Insignificance, RVM, SOLAT, Crazy Mary, Jeremy, Black, Leash. Brilliant view side stage up above Mike.
    Like a book among the many on a shelf...

    Dublin 02 Arena - 22/6/10. Belfast Odyssey Arena - 23/6/10. London Hyde Park - 25/6/10. Berlin Wuhlheide - 30/6/10.

  • 1st show - Va Beach, VA 1998. Played Rats for first time with Matt, the Black from this show is on Live on Two Legs, played No Way, and ended with Alive, Sonic Reducer, Porch with Ed shining the mirror across the crowd.

    2nd - PJ20 - the entire weekend. Had Tenclub tickets and was up close on night two. Proposed to my now wife while we were on this trip. The museum and everything was great.

    3rd - night 4 of The Spectrum shows. Don't need to say much that isn't already known. It was nice being the only person in my section who knew all the words to Out of My Mind. I still can't believe they played that.

    I'm sure Wrigley will surpass one of these shows. But it's gonna be hard to do.
