    Chicago 1. 

    Ft Worth 1

    Austin 2

    Chicago 2 was ruined by too much 10. If your gonna play 8 out of 11 you need to just go 11/11 or its not a good set. Green Disease alone keeps this ahead of the others for me.

    The rest of the shows

    Texas run was so fun. Ft Worth was just nuts how good it was for me. And night 2 hit everything I wanted out of this run personally. Can’t wait to revisit it. 

    I mean Long Road, HTI, Garden, Undone, Inside Job, Severed Hand… chills

    Based solely on setlists I'd say that Chi 2 and Ft. Worth 2 were the big winners.  I thought Austin 2 and MSP 1 were the worst sets out of the "tour." 
    I'll ride the wave where it takes me......

    I went with MSP2 because the set featured at least 1 song from every studio album.  Loved the variety.

    It was a close call between Chicago 2 and FTW 2 for me, but I ultimately went with FTW 2. It’s always hard comparing shows you haven’t been to (FTW) with shows you have (Chicago), but at least on paper, FTW had the best setlist. Can’t believe how many rarities they fit into that set. Long road, HTI, breakerfall, brain of J, red mosquito, garden, inside job, severed hand- what a setlist! And to top it all off the first performance of undone since 2010, and judging by the videos I’ve seen, they killed it! So jealous of all of those who were there to see it!

    Only going to Indy,obviously I got the dick on seeing any of them live.  🤪 

    To see a set with all of that old stuff?  Damm, that would be one that just had me on my heels the whole time.   FW1 gets my vote.

    Look forward to the boots and hearing the shows.

    The main set of this is absolute fire on paper. The first 12 songs is a helluva run. Although Austin N1 hands down got the best encore…

    Thats a fucking killer encore right there

    FW2 is my pick. My 26th show and first time hearing Hard to Imagine, Breakerfall, Inside Job and Undone. Also got to hear two of my faves- Garden and Red Mosquito.  I start every day with Long Road (my alarm tone) and my fave song to start shows!   =)

    Chicago II
    Some killer sets this tour as already mentioned, however Chicago 2 wins for me as it has more of my favourite songs…Marker, Immortality, Green Disease, Present Tense, Smile, Deep…

    With a couple of bootleg codes I’ll probably go the Chicago I and II double. 

    Chicago I for me has Animal, In My Tree, Faithful, Quick Escape. Not many double ups across both nights. 

    Next in line would be Forth Worth II and I.

    I just looked up the sets and you they played 6-7 songs each night that no other city got. That's actually a crazier stat than any white whales getting out of the way. I have heard (Tremor Christ - 25 years ago), Surrender, Green Disease (20 years ago), Light Years, Come Back, God's Dice, Faithful, Marker, Comatose, Down, Deep...heard all of them except Street Fighting Man and none of them were played elsewhere and they were all surprises for people that haven't been fans as long but grew into the band's catalogue. I don't even love all those songs but I love that people do and they got to hear them. I saw two shows and only heard 4 songs I've never heard before and that's a record low but I loved the shows so much! So I can't call either Chicago the best, bceause it's all so preferencial. Each show is all unto itself any more than the band has ever done. 
    98: St. Louis. 2000: Alpine. 2003: Chicago. 2006: Chicago Night 2, Milwaukee Night 1. 2007: Chicago (Lolla). 2009: Chicago 1 & 2. 2011: Alpine 1 & 2. 2013: Chicago & LA Night 1. 2016: Chicago 1 & 2. 2018: Chicago 1 & 2.

    So, I will say I’m a bit biased as Fort Worth N2 is the only show I was able to attend. When I look at these objectively, all are great sets! The guys did such a great job of mixing it up from show to show. These slow starts are allowing some nice gems to pop in every now and then. Also, so cool how they were dropping in at least 2-3 rarely played songs a night.

    However, I just love this setlist. While I’m eagerly awaiting the boot, I made my own playlist on Apple Music and love it! Loved the Long Road opener, have not heard that in so long! Ed sounded absolutely fantastic too! From Hard to Imagine all the way to Betterman was just absolutely amazing. Can’t believe they played Breakerfall and Brain of J! Undone?! It was amazing and had a nice little extended “building . . . building” at the end.

    I actually love Seven O’clock and it played well into Brain Damage/Inside Job (my favorite PJ song!).

    I love DOTC, but would have liked to have heard Super Blood or Quick Escape here (third time for DOTC), but honestly I’m quibbling!

    Great finish as well (not the best encore), but I loved getting RITFW into YLB with the lights on. 

    So pleased with this set. Especially, that main set, it just had me laughing every time a new song started. Like, really, they are playing this? Yes! (Didn’t even mention Red Mosquito and Why Go!)

    It’s possible playing so many hits on N1 opened this set up to be so unpredictable. Having seen a lot of those songs last year, I was ready for the unknown! Loved it.
