AHAHAHA nice, if they did Surfin' Bird I'd poo myself. I definitely see them doing No More Mr. Nice Guy since it's so simple to sing and play.
What a racket they're makin', Jack, they keep me up at night playin' their electric guitars!!

Great list, Marty. There's been a lot of classic rock so far, with some modern rock acts thrown in. I hope the ratio skews toward 90s alternative (or 80s new wave) artists as the tour progresses. I would love to see a Green Day cover, and I think Blink 182 "What's My Age Again" would be awesome. Nirvana must be covered eventually, and if the tour ends without a cover of Radiohead's "Creep" it would be a big disappointment!

One I am predicting for one of the two LA dates is "I Love LA" by Randy Newman.
Then again, they didn't play any covers of Apollo Theater-related artists in New York so who knows.

I have a feeling if he is ever going to cover The Doors at any point on this tour, it will either be "L.A. Woman" or "Love Me Two Times".

I just have a sneaking suspicion that they are going to do Radio Radio this tour, but fake out the hardcore fans in the process. I feel like Al is going to introduce a song they've never played before live (ie. Hardware Store, Hamilton Polka, etc.), start into it a couple bars, and then the "Ladies and gentlemen, there is no reason to play this song..."

The Time Warp would be great. Also The Sword Of Damocles, Hot Patootie / Bless My Soul, or Dammit Janet from Rocky Horror.

Did you misread RHCP as RHPS for a split second, too, or am I the only one? :lol:
