I will be back as well. Why try to change us now?! I was just happy to catch two shows on the tour. At our local mall they replaced the HMV store with an independent record store and they carry all kinds of great stuff. I picked up a a bootleg of Bob and Tom Petty from the 1986 Australia tour. Bob is very chatty between songs. He tells the audience to "shut up" at one point when he's talking about "heroes" (very similar to the opening of Hard To Handle, if you still have a VHS player!). Great live show, lots of Empire Burlesque in there and a killer Watchtower.

You know, Willie, I was waiting for the scores from the very last night, but I don't know if we'll get them. It seems to me this has happened more than once on this site, and I don't get it. Not that it would make a difference to our number 7 ranking. After being in the middle of the pack most every tour, it was good to see us have some success. I don't know what the future holds, but if there is another pool in the future, I'll be here. Hope to see you all then.

Not that anyone seems to bother checking in anymore (can't really blame you) but we did finish 7th as a team. Way to go Pounds of Headlines.

Bob really got stuck on the setlist for 3/4 or more of this leg. It just might be enough to keep us in the top 10 as a team though.

The Oshawa and Toronto shows were great. Bob was more playful in Toronto and seemed more energized by the crowd. I had 5th row in Oshawa stage left and had a direct view to Bob the whole night, but couldn't see George or Stu very well. In Toronto, 7th row, same spot. the stage was bigger so it was easier to see everyone. In Oshawa everyone put their cell phones away, in Toronto, it was a bit a struggle between security and the crowd, but all in all pretty good compliance. Highlights for both shows include Stormy Weather, Once Upon a Time, Desolation Row and Ballad of a Thin Man. Duquesne Whistle fizzled a bit in Oshawa, but came together the next night. In Oshawa,the guy next to me at the merch stand bought the last poster, so I lost out (long story involving the world's worst dinner and getting there just in time).

That's terrible. Only 9 nine days to go before my back to back shows. Top ten, obviously "4" believers are pounding those headlines.

I could give you the whole sad story, but won't bother. I didn't make it to the show. But let's turn to a happy subject. We're top-10!!

It was down to the wire. I was out of town for the weekend, with limited access to the internet. As soon as I got back, I filled it in (with something like 6 hours to go until Tour Time). Summer Day for 20 points...one of those songs I usually pick. Not this time. Still, not a bad start all around. Have fun at the show (on Father's Day too!). I have my two shows lined up in a couple of weeks.

You had me worried for a bit there, Willie. We have a full team again, and I'm seeing Bob this coming Sunday. All is well.

It's not entirely stagnant though...To Ramona, Don't think twice, I could have told you...all in and out. Stormy weather and Old Black Magic are my aces up the sleeve on this tour so far.

Have you guys noticed that while the set list is stagnant our ranking as a team improves constantly? Sweet sixteen!

Stockholm # 2 had some changes (and scored me some points)...could this be the return of the set list shakeup? I want them to put Braggin in the set.

What was I thinking? Should have selected only songs on the setlist from the last show of the previous tour. I mean, why shake things up just because you've released a new triple album?

...suffering, like a (April) fool...20 points would have been nice.

I have 5th row in Oshawa (where I coincidentally just moved a few months ago...Bob must have heard) and 7th row in Toronto already lined up. Nice to see the gang back in action.

Great to see everyone made it. Bought a 5th row seat for the Wallingford, CT show in June.
