I really want to know the thinking behind NOT playing Pyongyang in the UK (apart from at MODE). Ridiculous decision looking back, it's obviously an album highlight and and even bigger live highlight. Glad it's now in there but it should have been played at the UK shows.

^ They were both played at Wolverhampton, great stuff. The more I think about it the more I realise that Wolverhampton was the PERFECT setlist in terms of new and old songs together. I mean:

Go Out
Song 2
Lonesome Street
Ghost Ship
Out Of Time
Coffee & TV
Thought I Was A Spaceman
Trimm Trabb
I Broadcast
Trouble In The Message Centre
Beetlebum
Tender
Mirrorball
There Are Too Many Of Us

- - Encore - -
Stereotypes
For Tomorrow
This Is A Low
Girls & Boys
Ong Ong
The Universal

I think the Wolves setlist could've been just a bit larger, but still it was a wonderful setlist!

It would be a travesty if they don't play another TMW gig, with more than 4 songs, in London to support this album.

Go Out is a perfect show opener, everything that's good about the studio version is even better live. So much energy!

I'm not sure if this has been brought up yet or not but has anyone else noticed that Damon has changed the 1st line of Ghost Ship? Studio and live are different, I noticed it first from the Brooklyn show recording.

Yep the first line is definitely different, at least it was at Wolverhampton and Blackpool. At MODE he used the album lyric. I just heard the Hong Kong audio though and it's now back to the album lyrics, odd. Perhaps Damon just forgot the first line for a number of gigs. :lol:

Also Alex really needs to ditch the shorts and hair dye! Go grey man!

Bring back the good old times when we chatted about the colour of Damon's underwear

Alex said to a Chilean newspaper that TMW is an album that works pretty well live, every song works great except for "Ice Cream Man, but we keep working on that one hahaha!"

It was the show highlight for me, alongside Pyongyang. I was singing Ice Cream Man in my head for weeks after the MODE show. SO GOOD! I'm really stumped too, seems really odd that they aren't playing it at all. One performance of the song at MODE and now nothing. It's the new Caramel.

I'll be surprised if Damon dyes his barnet too.
