^^^^^^

They last played Chemistry on the New World Tour, 1982.  Maybe its time to bring it back?  We can only hope...

I guess I won't complain about the lack of a North Carolina show-at least they are playing on my continent. 

MP in it's entirety-interesting. Would have preferred PeW but it's still cool-I hope all of you Camera Eye geeks appreciate this because it's really for you. Don't accuse these guys of not listening to the fans ever again.

Yeah, we've been asking for it ever since the T4E tour. It only took 'em 14 years.  sarcasm.gif

I gotta say I am disappointed as MP in its entirety is not a strong selling point for me. It is an easy cash in for them though. weak.

It's a smart marketing move though.....designed to make people overlook the fact that they don't actually have a new album to tour with.

In any case, lets be honest...that's what folk want to hear, noy eight or nine S&A songs.

However, as they are ignoring the UK, I really couldn't care less what they play.

Would you rather have them play Rivendell, Anagram for Mongo, Dog Years, and You Bet Your Life and probably NOT make as much dough?  tongue.gif

I was lucky enough to see them play it back in the day.....quite frankly I think it's pathetic they have ignored fans wishes for so long...

I agree.  It'll be worth it just to see the crowd go berserk.  
Me, I am particularly psyched about Vital Signs live.

Awesome! MP in it's entirety AND several shows within a short plane ride...coolness! Now the only question I have is what color scheme the drums will have.

Well, really the only question is the setlist; I wonder just how far back this time machine goes...AFTK, Bastille Day, Chemistry (thank you Mara), Jacobs Ladder...this'll be fun.

MP has always been well represented in the set lists since its release.

I guess I am getting old but when I heard "time machine" I was hoping for some really old tunes.

Even though my fave album by them is Signals, MP I think would be the coolest album of theirs to hear live in its entirety outside of Hemispheres.

Ironically, the one song off that album I have no interest in hearing is TCE.  Partly that's because I saw them do it in the early 80's, but mostly because I think it's the one weak spot on MP.  It goes on a bit too long and I was never too crazy about the "focus is sharp in the city" angle.  That said, it's still a great song, but the rest of MP is SO incredible that the song pales a little in comparison.

dude don't put all your eggs in one basket.  there's still the rest of the setlist to think about possible time machine tunes.  plenty of room for new, semi new, 80's, and old.

smart financial move indeed as I suggested with the easy cash in remark.

It goes beyond ticket sales too as I am guess the DVD of this tour will sell better than the last few DVD's.

No Michigan stop.   sad.gif   And we've always been so good to them here. (To add insult to injury, I'm listening right this moment to a commercial that Huey Lewis & The News are coming to Pine Knob this summer. WTF!)

Oh well...maybe I'll be able to make it to Mohegan Sun. Or convince the hubby that he really wants to spend his birthday weekend in Toronto.

What about Sarnia, that's pretty close.
