Hey guys. Just a quick request. We’ve had feedback that there are issues with the setlist for this show. So, I’d like your feedback as attendees of the gig. The setlist below is the one I took from this thread the morning after the show (I’ve read back through the thread just to reassure myself).



- Allegedly, Yes & Viva La Vida should be the other way round, anyone remember if this is the case?



- The talk video. Is it clear from the way this setlist is phrased that it’s a video & not the boys playing? Any input as to how we could make it clearer if not?



- Chris played a small bit of Erik Satie's Six Gnossiennes 1. Do we feel this needs inclusion? And if so, where does it go if it bridges two songs?



- The Escapist. How would you log this? Its on the setlist that the boys have (as per the photo from the Philly show). But how do we make it clear that its recorded & the boys aren’t on stage at the time?

You are right, here are the facts:

Viva la vida was played right after in my place

the talk video was the techno version with a video about politicians... i don't quite remember but it was funny

Chris played satie's piece at the end of politik... he was going crazy!!! then he stopped and lovers in japan started, so it wasn't really a bridge but just an end to politik.

And for your last question, it was a recorded version of the escapist as it was playing while the band was leaving the stage, waving to the crowd.

I know this is an old thread, but I have a question and didn't feel the need to create a new thread for this.

How are the tickets selling for the Montreal concerts? Fast? Not fast? I want to get floor tickets. Are they hard to get? I guess they'll come to the Bell Centre again..
