I'll be in Seattle (both nights), Dublin, Manchester and London! 🥁 🎸 🎤 🎹

I'm an early-career researcher/lecturer in the UK, who is constantly questioning what's this all about. :wink:

I need your help sisters and brothers: Creatively bump this thread from today until the shows dates, so we can all enjoy this gem live again after 8 long years :hug:

Many thanks,

Panos

    I was at that Columbia show.  Education was fantastic.  The arena was at the University of South Carolina.  I won the first two rows lottery and sat on the front row.  Ed kneeled down during the show and handed me a pick.  It was unreal.  They also played a full WMA right after Education that night. They also played Footsteps to start the 2nd encore.  Some guy close to the front had "FOOTSTEPS"  painted on what looked to be a  towel and Ed took it and held it up and placed it on something on the front of the stage and then they played it.  Play this video below and start at 49:17 to see it.

    So that's what you need to do Pap.  Get a towel and paint "EDUCATION" on it and get up front and maybe then they will play it.  Congrats on your PhD.  Way to go man.  That's fantastic.  Sure hope they play it for you.
