Re: Show Opener

I think the ultimate show opener would be Baba O' Riley.

Oh, so do I. I'm just wondering if they're gonna make a switch.

Yeah, that would be the ultimate of course but there hasn't been any scuttle-
but mentioning that song being in the set. But ya' never know.....

Yeah, the opening line of "You think we look pretty good together...." lends
itself to nice opener status. Worked well on the '79 tour.

No, they won't open with WAY. That's a middle-of-the-set song. The only
reason they opened with it at CFNYC was because they were only playing a
4-song set.

Well, they'd cut out the jam/improve part......a la' the '82 tour. It would be the
3-minute MG.
