I hope, this stays the same. That would be 10 new songs for me again (8 from SN, plus Burning Jacobs Ladder & Come to Me) There are still a few songs I which have been played a bit too often and I would swap (Hit the City, Harborview Hospital, Harvest Home, Deepest Shade), but I'm fine with them
Speaking of played very often - First time The Gravedigger's Song is dropped since it came out, I believe
first 4 nights look to be identical. likely to get familiar with the songs and whatnot. Got to give it to him, very few artists play only their newest stuff only. He doesn't really have any bonafide hits or anything, but it's kind of cool to see set list staples dropped in lieu of new(er) songs. Meth Blues, Gravedigger Song, One Way Street all gone.
I hope that "Letter Never Sent" and "Playing Nero" aren't scrapped permanently. Would be a shame two cut two new songs. There is plenty of other stuff to cut. Looking at you, "Deepest Shade" and "Harborview Hospital"

Have to say Gazing from the Shore doesn't really work live. Something was off. Otherwise amazing show yesterday. Mark's vocal game was on top. And yeah, Shelly is not touring with them anymore it seems.
Down to 17 songs now. Not cheap tickets either. £33 with fees. For 80 minutes. Anyone other than me think this habit of progressively shortening the setlists is somewhat cheating us punters?
I get what you are saying Ken but I think it's still pretty cheap when compared to many other forms of lesser entertainment. Mark is putting his voice under intense pressure again with some off the tracks from this tour and smoking again is certainly not going to help either. Mark is no spring chicken and personally I think anywhere from 15-20 tracks is more than acceptable at this point in his career. Mark seems to be 'letting it all hang out' again even adding little improv vocals in at times in the songs which is very rare in the history of live Lanegan recordings. He is also quite raw and ragged vocally at times which is uncharacteristic as phrasing is usually fairly precise.
