I've noticed at MSG that the recorded music played before the show belong just to three bands: The Who, Jethro Tull and Genesis.
Was the same at other shows?
And do you think every member of the band chose one?

I asked the same in another thread.  Someone said that they read somewhere ( Rolling Stone mag ?) that Neil selects the music.  Yeah, MSG selection was awesome.  The Who - Young Man Blues from Live at Leeds !!!

Neil's discussed in one of his books that he puts a lot of thought (no surprise) and enjoys selecting the music for the pre-show so he more or less owns the task; the pre-show music at Newark was excellent :)

In Dallas we got much the same pre-show music as the last tour. I wonder if Neil picks different songs for different venues?

I honestly don't remember what was 'broadcasted' in the last tour but it seems they used a slightly different 'set' for R40 during various dates.
Maybe someone was at MSG before me and can add further information.

Swore I heard some Yes at the MSG show, or maybe that's just my mind playing tricks with me considering I listened to Close To The Edge earlier that day.

I heard Tommy Overture by The Who in Buffalo. That one got me pumped for the show because I was even air drumming to that

It kind of makes me wonder how long the preshow soundtrack is.  I've heard a lot of the same songs over the past five years or so but they don't always seem to be in the same order. Maybe they just put it on shuffle for each show.
