Hello Team! So here we are down the "home stretch" of Europe Spring Tour 2018. Adam and new team member Cronkite neck-and-neck heading into the last shows. Will there be a "wild card" or will Bob maintain the mostly static setlist to finish the tour?

I saw Bob at the Tower this weekend. It was.......different.Different than even my 2 most recent past shows at Academy Of Music in 12-14 and Mann Music Center in 07-16, both of those shows having a basic "static" set-list. Bob's concert-show has taken on a distinctive Broadway even vaudevillian feel even-more-so than the recent past shows. The stage set-up changed with Bob now stage-right with the band spread-out stage left and Stu/George/Tony in a tight unit stage far left. Charlie is in the middle and front-and-center quite a bit and he just wails out the electric solos. The songs (and quite varied musical styles) are well-timed and placed to bring shining moments and dark-gloomy-retrospective moments to the show. Bob "the crooner" is now full-blown with him swirling the mike stand, dressed in a 50's-esque white satin jacket and white bucks as he croons classic standards, and the crowd went wild for all of it! The "crooner" songs are well interspersed among the rockers and deep ballads so that the show tempo doesn't lag. The enunciation of words has improved BUT the re-writing of most of the older tunes and even the relatively newer ones was somewhat startling, particularly Tangled Up In Blue which was almost unrecognizable unless you listened to the lyrics. That said, it was still good, even GREAT, slick and with a nice flow to the show. Bob is on-stage for about 1:45 including the encores. If you can see it, go! One never knows.

Hello Team! Welcome to the next go-round on the Never Ending Tour. Bob has fulfilled my request and played a Tom Petty song (I wrote Bob a letter asking him to do that so it seems he received it?). I think likely a one-off think but we'll see. We are doing OK in the Top 30 last time I looked. Best wishes to everyone, Mr. Dean

For those of you who played - and it wasn't me - congratulations on your high finish with only 4/5 of a team! Does anyone else think it strange that the tour is over and no shows have been announced?

I AM A FUCK-UP! Seems I never received an e-mail and I have been less than attentive about this since Bob lapsed into somnambulence in the setlists; nevertheless I have failed my team by not filling out the form in time and here I am just a few minutes too late! Oh well, is what it is. The sun will rise tomorrow and we will be movin' on. Good luck to everyone and perhaps we will have another crack at this.

Thanks to everyone and CRONKITE for coming on board and showing all the rest of us what we didn't choose! I was left in the dust by the rest of the team but plan on a comeback this summer!

We have moved all the way up into Top 20 teams (24th place tie) thanks to the great play of Cronkite - Omedeto Gozaimasu - and Curf! Looking for more set-list surprises in London.

Thanks all! Never been on a team before and never scored this well before. I think there's a connection. Good mojo!

Hello everyone! Well, we managed to come in 38th place with only 4 responding team members this time, not too shabby! We are going to shuffle the team deck and see what happens. Thinking of you, Mr. Dean
