They soundchecked DRC, Love Gun, Shout it Out Loud, I Love it Loud, Lick it Up and RNR All Nite but opted not to put them in the set because they just didn't want to replace Say Yeah, Yes I Know, When Lightning Strikes, I'm An Animal, Never Enough and Larger Than Life...

lol... I can't believe people are talking about closed door soundcheck setlists they "might" be playing

as much as i can't stand the album... I really hope they end up adding 3 or 5 tunes to the set from SB... lots of fans dig the album, they should play em.

Yes. Absolutely.

We got pieces of "Danger Us', "I'm An Animal", "Never Enough", "Russian Roulette" etc.. Today we got bit of "Say Yeah", etc.

They get minimal time to work up new tracks. They fly in, do a short check, quick bite, do press (tons lately), go get dressed for an hour or so, and then straight off to the Platinum Meet & Greet. Lately there have been huge numbers coming backstage for this. We've counted them as high as 75-100 as they line up and come back. (They used to keep them around 30 or so a few years ago. Now it's just crazy amounts of people paying to come back.)


Great turnouts both nights. Both staff and band were VERY surprised by the huge turnouts. Baltimore/DC has been a light ticket market for 25 years other than the Reunion era.

About 75-80% would be my estimate. Lots of empty seats on the upper level.

What kind of intro did they use this time?

They seem to do small changes all the time.

The were lowered to the stage on the risers, but only from about 10 feet or so? That is what it seemed like anyway.

Great show. I was up in row 5 and ended up with a bunch of great pics. Biggest disappointment was still only getting one new song in the set. I would have loved hearing another two songs from Sonic Boom.
