Since Keith has abandoned The Worst and Slipping Away, no more latter day original tunes in the set - kind of sad.
The most recent original tune is Start Me Up, and unfortunately it gets butchered...
Pity over the last decade that they dropped songs like You Got Me Rocking, Rock And A Hard Place, I Go Wild, Love Is Strong , Sad Sad Sad, and Saint Of Me, good later day songs that work well live that could be second generation Warhorses by now had they kept them going to audiences over the years.
Thankfully YGMR has been dropped during No Filter '17/'18 so far... ( beside Amsterdam '17 if I remember correctly ).
I'm missing The Worst, pity it looks like Keith got put off of that one because the audience didn't know it well in Dublin or London 2 and therefor didn't respond to Keith's liking.
It's not well known - glad I got to hear it at London 2, but the crowd round me mostly didn't react to it and there was almost a sigh of relief when Happy came up as his second song. As you say, it looks like he has given up on it.
Why start with SMU when Keith can't handle the intro? What's the point? Do they want to start on a false note? Are they making a statement?
I know it says 19 songs, and with a quick glance seems like a decent setlist, but when you go from one song to the next it just doesn't quite add up to something extraordinary.
Don't get me wrong all classic songs (and the new blues cover), but hard to say "WOW" when you put it all together.
That said, I'm sure it was an enjoyable experience, especially for the casual fans who get to hear all the warhorses.
Keith smu intro was due to technical problem or something.
