I am, but I'm all for more TMW songs (even though more have been added back recently). I'm just wondering if they'll switch up the set list at the US shows. Maybe less of Britpop era and more S/T and 13 era tracks? (I think we know OOT is the only think tank we'll get). I think they added Death of a party at Coachella 2013. wouldn't mind on your own or movin on

Also, I hope they keep the universal as the closer for the us shows, totally my favorite song.

Not at all, because it has been replaced by a far more superior song in Pyongyang. :)

Some changes would be nice. I rather suspect it will be pretty much the same though.

The self titled album has been criminally underrepresented. It's my favourite too. Yet there's still 6 songs from Parklife in the latest setlist. They can definitely afford to switch one or two in favour of some S/T tracks. Also, what happened to He Thought of Cars? I was really looking forward to that one too!

Exactly! It's not like they'd struggle to pick decent songs from it either. Practically all of them sound amazing live!

And S/T was easily their biggest USA release
It's a different market out here and they should really focus on the second half of their catalog a bit more for these shows.

They shouldn't have written so many great songs.
