Tom Waits Concert Set List Phoenix, Arizona

Tom Waits kicked off his world tour this Tuesday (June 17 2008) in Phoenix, Arizona. Waits played at the 1,364-seat Orpheum Theater and gave his fans a confident two hour performance.

Mr Waits reckoned it was 30 years since he played in Phoenix. This is actually his first full-scale tour in over eight years. Tom filled the set list with plenty of songs from his 1999 album, Mule Variations.

I love how a journalist once described his voice being "like it was soaked in a vat of bourbon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months, and then taken outside and run over with a car."

Thank you for posting the Concert Set List. I have tickets for his first night in Milan and was eager to know what songs would be played. Not my dream set list but still pretty good I guess (would love to see him perform "Telephone Call from Istambul" for instance). He may have a diferent set list for the European leg of the tour.

hi,

what was support like/was there support?

I'm starting to get anxious that the gig I've waited years to see will be spoiled by the typically horrible Irish promoters getting someone terrible to open
