. Tsb has basically been the closer since I became a fan, minus I thing 1 tour he did Albuquerque. And Yoda always gets me excited. But something else would probably be just as exciting. What songs were closers/encores before tsb?


Before TSB came out it was just Yoda. Back in '94, Headline News was added to the encore in the months that led up to that singles' release. Before DTBS was released (on the 83/84 tours) I believe Another One Rides The Bus was the encore (possibly paired with I Love Rocky Road) while Yoda was actually placed somewhere in the middle of the setlist.

I would definitely not mind a shakeup in the encore. Yoda as the final song of the main set, and have the encore be one more parody (or an acoustic parody medley?) followed by Jackson Park Express.

I thought that was part of the Mandatory Tour, but it may have actually only been Alpocalypse now that I think about it.

Mellow definitely needs to be played on the next tour.

And if the next tour is what is rumored, I hope we get more stitcher shows. And if the set list doesnt change up at least 1 full recording has to come out. It would be too special to not have one.
