Mine is probably when it opened in Sydney 06, the third show there I think? What a beautiful song and even better with a SIFL tag! Nothing else to declare! :)

    really getting back into the '00 versions.. romanza as an intro.. and some cool little improvs by eddie during the outro.. good stuff.

    boise and seattle (from touring band) are two of my favorites at the moment
    i'm more a fan of popular bands.. like the bee-gees, pearl jam

    I was there and it was electric.

    A surprising opener but it got everyone pumped. So I am biased but I agree

    I love the Los Angeles 2006 night 2 version with Baby Please Don't Go as a tag.

    but my all time favorite is the improv Eddie does on the Seattle 11-6-2000 version.

    I don't wanna leave
    It's hard to leave
    I wanna believe it
    I wanna believe that
    I wanna believe that... and I wouldn't believe you're in love with me
    Here I come ... I'm coming home.
    I'd rather it be yours
    And it takes my strength
    It takes all my strength
    And I know ... I know ...
    I gotta go...
    Go….
    Go...
    I'm gone

    I thought he sang "I'd rather be alone"....

  • I've always loved the improved tags on betterman. Some of my fav's are:

    TB2K, 2000 - "here I come, I coming home..."
    State College 2003 - IMO, the best performance of the popular Save it For Later Tag
    Montreal 2005 - A sweet and heartfelt tag of Ramones I Wanna be Your Boyfriend
    Hamilton 2005 - a rip roaring run of Sleater Kinney's Modern Girl, normally done as the outro to Not For You
    Arnhem 2006 - Bob Marley's No Woman No Cry is played first as an intro, and then tagged at the end "no woman no cry, no woman I cry, no woman makes me cry..." before launching into the SIFL "don't let me down"

    I love this version of Betterman, Eddie played this version at his solo concert and it sounded amazing in person:

    I still sing this improv everytime I'm singing along to the song in the car, even if it's not the "right" version! :D

    Definitely London2010! If not for the ridiculous crowd reactions to the Tittie-flash during the intro, love it for the amazing energy the band puts in it! Better Man is one of the song that's on nearly every boot but this version is just SO good! Also the Binaural-Tour versions with the Romanza intro are very cool.
