1. Who are You- great opener from CFNYC in 2001. They should start in the
dark with light up on first vocals, get everyone singin in the audience
2. You Better, You Bet- not one of my fav Who tunes, but a crowd pleaser and
keeps a good positive vibe from crowd.
3. Magic Bus- they haven't played this since 2000. Would like to hear Pete
come up with yet another new way to play this.
4. Real Good Looking Boy- pull it out when everyone is in a Who lather.
5. Young Man Blues- Pete tore it up with this in UK shows in 2002 but they
ditched it for the U.S.- maybe b/c no John.
6. Long Live Rock- nice to hear Pete and Rog both sing lead.
7. The Real Me- Balls to the Wall, but can Pino handle lead bass?
8. The Punk and the Godfather- been awhile?
9. 5.15- some will say enough, already, but Pete always blisters in this one.
10. Love Reign O'er Me- version at Shoreline in 2002 most moving song of the
tour for me.
11. Eminence Front- crowd knows from frequent radio play and lets Rog rest
that voice and play a little guitar.
12. Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere- more Pete just tearin it up.
13. Summertime Blues- always loved the Who's hard rock version, but if can't
do it without Johns deep vocals, then replace with Shakin All Over.
14. Baba O'Riley- ought to catch people by surprise at this point in the set.
15. Old Red Wine- salute to John, followed up with...
16. Trick of the Light- Does Pete do the intro? Not sure Pino could get it
to sound quite right.
17. Overture- let Daltrey gather for the Tommy explosion, Pete just warming
18. Amazing Journey/Sparks- everyone's highlight from 2002.
19. Acid Queen/Fiddle About/Eyesight to the Blind Medley- just a verse and a
chorus from each. Just a thought.
20. Pinball Wizard- no choice. How about Simon get on electric and add some
beef to when Pino comes in at the beginning and during the interlude.
21- I'm Free- Tried it a few in UK in 2002. Bring it Back. It's the ominous
antithesis of PW.
22. SMFM/LTY- Wrap up the main set with this mountain mover.
23. The Kids are Alright- song we know and love, but indicates to the crowd
that the encore isn't going to be fleeting.
24. My Generation/Roadrunner/My Generation Blues- used to ignite mid-70s Who
shows, can again.
25. Won't Get Fooled Again- what else?
There you have it. I'm actually quite proud of this setlist. I really think
it would work. Thoughts?
