    Oh my god are they absolutely hideous! Totally amateurish, IMO. I wouldn't be surprised if these guys designed them themselves.

    I mean, really bad.

    Wow those shirts are remarkably bad looking indeed.
    Why is it that concert shirts are so often offered in black only? I have a lovely old white ABWH shirt somewhere, it looks very nice.

    If that is the real setlist, what happened to all of the Talk material?

    Lol---I was just going to hear Awaken---it moves me even if rabin is playing it.
    At least there is no Talk ---tried to listen to it last week in preparation and it still sucks except for 2 songs.

    Really, no Talk?? Setlist seems by the book. Not so disappointed I'm missing this tour anymore. (Assuming this setlist is accurate)

    Setlist seems rather unadventurous. I guess all the pre-tour talk was a crock.

    I think if you gave JA truth serum ----he'd rather be playing with Steve Alan and Rick----Tony Levin or the current AWR bass player---he's very good.

    I believe Lee Pomeroy is on bass. Previous tour work with Wakeman, Three Friends, Steve Hackett, recent ELO concert and tv appearances, as well as recording in It Bites, Headspace and This Oceanic Feeling.
    I remember tomorrow

    That logo is absolutely awful. I was hoping they'd use something better once things "got real."

    Isn't that where he's always been?

    He calls himself a "font geek." Really?

    The setlist with JLP looked more challenging than this. Kinda disappointed. They can not live without playing Roundabout and OOLH? Is there any statistic about how many times they played it?
