I was at the concert on Friday in Chicago.

The good… IGNORELAND (song of the night, by a mile), Find The River, I’m Gonna DJ, Let Me In and Horse to Water (the best of the new songs). Also, The National were very, very good.

The bad… For a band that can be so inventive, I do not understand why they continue to play The One I Love, Orange Crush and Losing My Religion. They need to be brave and challenge the public - this is what R.E.M. has always done with their records and they should do it more live. Modest Mouse was simply awful. For the life of me, I don’t see what people think is so great about that band.

they play those songs for the same reason dave matthews band still plays Crash Into Me. they are songs that got them where they are today. you have to please some of the general people who came to hear the hits.

i thought it was a great show. same feeling on Ignoreland. i love that song. and Man on the Moon to close - :)

I was at this show as well, and it was one of the best rock shows I've been to in a long time (I'm actually a big jazz geek...my trio actually does a version of Losing My Religion on our latest CD. Click my name).

Ignoreland was great, The Great Beyond was fantastic, and These Days has long been my favorite REM song, so that was a blast to hear, especially so early in the set.

Krazy Eyez Killa: You were bummed that they played Orange Crush, The One I Love and Losing My Religion. I'm kinda shocked that they had the balls to not play End of the World..., Stand, Everybody Hurts, Shiny Happy People, etc, etc, etc.

I agree with the assessment of Modest Mouse. But Johnny Marr is the poop. I love the Smiths.

And The National needs to write a song on their next album called: we really coulda used a soundcheck, man.

Yeah the majority of people get pissed when bands don't play the big hits - the casual concert goer goes for those very songs - which explains why everyone gets so up set when radiohead don't play Creep! Die hard fans shoudl be happy rem is making a real effort to play some of their older catalogue!
