Back from Montreal:
The DJ set and preshow film were fresh. "Happy With You" was featured in the preshow with Egypt Station graphics.
The horn section (the guys were great) and the three ES songs along with "From Me To You" freshened things up a bit.
"My Valentine" was done on piano (saw someone asked on a previous post) amd yes I'm glad Queenie Eye was still in the set as well (someone mentioned this too)
BTW-the new songs rocked in the arena setting; pity more weren't played. I believe NEW had four live songs to start out when it was released
SI thought the merchandise was weak as I didnt see anything related to ES.
Rememeber these shows are fresh for our Canadian friends. The States will get the minty fresh rejigged Freshned Up tour next summer.
Few more comments........
"You Won't See Me" was featured in its entirety in the preshow film
There were no "wardrobe change" or "this one is dedicated to Linda" comments. The other stale lines remained.
Two Japanese women were brought up on stage and one was named Yoko. There were boos. Haha
