Inside Job As An Opener?

Was listening to the song last night, and for the first time the thought occurred to me that it would make an incredibly cool opener!

What do you guys think? Take another listen:


It's kind of interesting how like Release, this song makes for a great album closer yet at the same time, (potentially) a fantastic slow burn concert opener!

I also feel like it would be an incredible opener because it makes for a satisfactory start lighting-wise onstage.

    I just listened to it about 20 minutes ago and came here to post the exact same thing. I think it would be an excellent opener. 

    I love this song and I hope to hear it live one day.

    I think that would be pretty cool.  I would love to see them mix in some non traditional songs into the opening slot.

    Don't need a listen to Inside Job to get on board this thread. (Mike's masterpiece I like to call it-or one of them) Great idea!

    Excellent opener. So much energy when they play this song.

    Start the campaign: Wrigley 1 opener Inside Job - for Bob...all Bob's! And all those out there facing trouble times and adversity. Quite literally a GREAT song. Not just from a homer PJ fan either.

    It’s killer as an opener on Vegas and Dublin 2006. One reason I revisit those boots pretty often.

    2006 Vegas was sensational. Crowd was totally into it, cheering the guitar riffs during the slow opening.

    Love the song.  I would prefer it as the transition song between the slow openers and the rockers or the acoustic encore and the heavier stuff.

    Release
    Lowlight
    Inside Job
    Go

    Something like that.  Just my opinion.

    I can't get this particular song out of my head lately.  I have been painting my parents house the past few weeks and have had the album on repeat and this song is stuck in my head now.  :)

  • There was a 6 year gap in Ireland shows (2000 -06). The way the band came out and started Inside Job and then EV comes out just before he starts singing... goosebumps, even when listening to the boot.
