The setlists.fm website of course doesn't have every setlist, but it shows 13 performances of "The Night Was So Young" in 2002, and then just three in Europe in 2004. I don't think it was done at all once he got to North America in 2004.

I must have got very lucky and seen one of those three performances then...

Quote
There are definitely some idiosyncrasies in how they choose songs for the setlist. "Honkin' Down the Highway" seems painfully obvious for the setlist as I've mentioned in the past. Written by Brian, sung by Al, then re-recorded by Al with Brian singing backing vocals, and as you mention, they both seem to be fond of the "Love You" album.

Yeah, it'd be very easy to do a mini-set of, say, Honkin' Down The Highway, Ding Dang (easy, quick, no words to learn, quite fun), and The NIght Was So Young (or if that's too wordy, I'll Bet He's Nice or Airplane). And I'm amazed, frankly, that Honkin' hasn't already made it into the set.

Quote
And if Brian is kind of getting into his groove and doesn't want to re-learn a bunch of weird songs, I wish they would just hand over a few selections to Al and Blondie. I think a mini-set with just Al and the band (and/or Al and Blondie and the band) would be awesome, and would allow Brian to not have to carry another added portion of the show. How about a mini-set of "Lookin' at Tomorrow", "Hold on Dear Brother", and a few others? Obviously, I'd prefer to have Brian with the guys for all the songs. Certainly, "Funky Pretty" for instance should have Brian's participation. 

That could be interesting (though I'm not a particular fan of those two songs -- though the band did a VERY good job on Hold On Dear Brother on the Soundstage DVD, especially Probyn).

[snip]
Whereas, perhaps he doesn’t like to regularly perform “Forever” because it’s tough. He had in the setlist back in 2001 for awhile. But at least some of the times they’ve added a new song to the setlist during a tour, they’ve done it a few times if for no other reason than to capitalize on the effort to rehearse it. So it may (or may not) be telling that “Forever” was a one-shot deal. Alternatively, perhaps they wanted it to be a special one-shot thing.
He sang it in Biloxi on December 4, which is Dennis's birthday.  At the soundcheck he said "I'll sing all the verses," which sounded to me like it was important to Brian that he sing it.  At the concert Brian dedicated it to Dennis without referring to his birthday, not even in indirect ways like "It was 71 years ago today ...."  He did a great job with it.

With all this, I got the impression it was a one-shot thing for Dennis's birthday.

Just found this set from what looks like a private function Nov 22. Pretty good quality.

That is a really good quality recording . Awesome.

This performance doesn't seem as energetic as the Ft Pierce show I went to. Maybe it is due to the setting, or could be perspective ( watching youtube clip VS actually being there).

If the show was indeed on November 22nd, then it was their fourth show in four nights. Add to that the nature of the audience, not necessarily hardcore, energetic fans, and that all probably contributes to a downtick in energy.

Al is not using his usual guitars, a tell-tale sign that at least some of their gear is rented gear provided just for the show. Doesn't mean that much, but probably indicates this was a quick "fly in and do the gig" sort of situation.

Very cool that this is up for viewing; due to the nature of the show (shortened and for a non-hardcore fan audience) it's pretty much a core hits set. The only items in the set that you wouldn't have heard at every BB concert in the 90s was "Then I Kissed Her", "Sail on Sailor", and "Love and Mercy." Plus I guess "All Summer Long" wasn't a standard in old BB setlists. But it is very cool to get a "soundboard" recording of this stuff, especially the Blondie and Al leads.

The show I attended in Rockville on Nov 20, was the 2nd of 4th consecutive shows. 

From the reviews I've read, Brian is at his best when having at least one full day between concerts. 

He and his band was on fire when I saw him in Philly on June 29th, after a day's rest. 

The Rockville show was very good, but Brian didn't seem to be at into it. 

I hope they take this into account for the Pet Sounds Tour

Does anybody know anything about the Carson Creek Ranch venue in Austin ,Texas? It appears that this is an outdoor show in late April. Isn't it a little early in the year for an outdoor show?

I second that!  I was there, but I didn't upload this.  I was sitting directly across from Al, so I had a different view (most of Brian was hidden by his piano, for one thing).  Too bad this doesn't have Brian's spoken dedication at the beginning.

Thanks again, Brian.

Funny you mention that.  I had the same view at the Montgomery College show in Rockville.  Only saw the top of Brian's head. 

Unless he brings back the Casio, I'll have to make sure to either get tickets a little further back or to the left of the piano.

I picked my New Buffalo seats with this specifically in mind. My view of Brian was perfect, but could barely see Al.

When I saw him in Philly back in June.  I was in row 5, on the left side of the venue.  I was right in front of Darian and Scott, and I still had a really good view of both Brian and Al.

I updated the top post with setlist links for the 2015 fall tour shows. Surprisingly, all but one was extant on setlist.fm. If anyone has a setlist for the November 11 Genesee Theatre show in Waukegan, IL, let me know and I'll add that one.
