When was the last performance of Fade Away?

Postby TracyJosh » 28 Aug 2017, 10:47

Just wondering if Fade Away ever made an appearance in the set after TGE tour? It is one of my favorites from TGE, and I noticed throughout this forum it does tend to get lumped in with the group of songs from that album that ARE deemed the good...

Possibly made an appearance on one of the first reunion tours? I know it's unlikely to have been played whilst touring S/T or 13 with them seemingly wanting to limit material from the 'Life trilogy' to the hits they probably felt obliged to play.

I'm 99% certain it wasn't played at and of the '09 gigs, I was at three of them. I think the last live appearance was probably circa '96

Yeah, since posting I took the initiative to look up the gigograpy on here and it would seem it was phased out towards the end of 1995/early 96... What on earth possessed them to cover 'My sharona' on TGE tour!?

It was never really covered properly, it was an instrumental mini version, which I believe Alex said was done mostly to annoy Damon, as they lyrics are fairly dark...
