    I just heard 'Soul' from Keep It Simple while out doing some shopping.
    Nice to hear Van on the radio again.

    'Lover Come Back'? Yes, that gets my vote as Instant Van Classic (TM) from the album.

    Hey, in less than three hours I'll be in the same room as our Chubby Churlish Chum!

    You do know me too well, William. Is it normal to be nervous before seeing one of your musical heroes for the first time?:laugh: I've got enough butterflies to fill a Gypsy Caravan.

    Looks like Tom got to hear a nice set list tonight. Can't wait for his review. :righton:

    Indeed! If this is really the setlist for the Toronto show then it's one of the most interesting I've seen in a long long time. A show potentially filled with goose bump inducing moments:

    Wild Night
    Tupelo Honey> Why Must I Always Explain
    Keep It Simple
    That's Entrainment
    In the Afternoon>Raincheck
    Wavelength
    Moondance
    Help Me
    Lover Come Back
    Sometimes We Cry
    St. James Infirmary
    Cleaning Windows
    Comfortably Numb
    Ballerina
    St. Dominic's Preview
    And the Healing Has Begun
    Gloria

    "I'm not numb... I'm not comfortable either" was the endearing quip after our fearless bandleader fumbled his cue for the second chorus of 'Comfortably Numb,' the inclusion of which was a big surprise for me (a welcome one too).

    That was indeed the set list. More later, but for me it was a Vanscendental experience.:love:
    And he played for 95 minutes.

    I think there were elements of 'Ancient Highway' incorporated into this too!

    Still on Cloud Van.:thumbsup:

    wow tommy, what a money shot Van delivered for your birthday! i'm very glad you got a good set list! the only thing missing is Summertime in England which would have made me explode if he did this set list and that song too, mystic church indeed....:nauga:

    i think i have to make this playlist for my ipod, its certainly a very strong set list...i'm shocked at how generous he was with his familiar songs....wavelength, moondance, tupelo, gloria, the floyd chestnut, WILD NIGHT!!!!, not to mention a few of my all times faves Ballerina, Dominic, Healing, St. James, CLEANING WINDOWS!!! wow, we need to find a tape of this show...:help:

    I love Van's interpretation of the Floyd number, but he seemed almost apologetic, embarrassed when introducing it. He said something like "Years ago I was asked by Roger Waters to play at 'The Wall'. This really isn't my kind of music (heavy stress on this:laugh: ), but it was used in some movie last year..." Note to Van, it was The Departed.

    One of the female backing vocalists sang the Waters part, and when Van came in with the "There is no pain, you are receding" bit, the crowd just erupted.
    I nearly plotzed it was so incredible. Then, as I said, he botched his second go at the chorus and the band covered for him. Still, it was a moment I'll never forget. Goose bumps, the whole bit.

    More later.

    he probably spent the rest of the night figuring out how to throw one of the band members under the tour bus for screwing him up!

    i would have plotzed as well hearing this odd choice for a song at a van show...I"d of prefered a glum Georgia on my Mind...hahaha

    Oh, man, the bass player never once let his eyes roam off of Van's hands lest he miss a cue. Van was deliberately switching up the arrangements on the fly the whole way through, practically daring them to screw up.

    classic van stage antics. hard to be a band member in his band i would think.

    :yikes: Where was this setlist when I saw him??? May be Van didn't appreciate my comments on his more recent albums ;)

    Sounds like a Wild Night of Van Los Hnoey!!!

    What is this "PLOTZED" you speak of :help: ???:confused:
     
  23. DJ WILBUR

    DJ WILBUR The Cappuccino Kid Thread Starter

    1. plotzed
    Yiddish slang for bowel movement.
    I was so scared I almost plotzed in my pants! I laughed so hard I almost plotzed in my pants!


    2) so intoxicated as to be unintelligible or incoherent.
    1) Your computer is plotzed.
    2) Ralph got so plotzed last night that he couldn't even give the cab driver directions to his house. (i'm sure Tom meant this sort of meaning)
