good and fun performance, would obviously like to see more songs thrown in the mix, but I wont complain about that unless the setlist still remains largely unchanged in the summer tour.  Anyway, great to hear IWBHFC live and in good qaulity again, same with Wishing Well which honestly, I think I prefer live over studio for that song.  And its  cool that we now have a good quality live version of Heart's All Gone assuming of course someone ripped it, which I'm sure it will appear online soon enough to download.

solid show.  Surprised to see no Ghost considering that's one of the better new songs.  I really think they should toss out a few like First Date and put in a few more new songs.

BTW I recorded the whole show flawlessly.  No hiccups in the stream at all.  Some people will probably have it uploaded before me since it's finals right now but I'll start posting the videos over the next view days on My YouTube Channel

The set list was great. I don't know what you complaining fags expect. For 55 minutes, my only change would be First Date for Carousel..

awesome show!

wow dude really??  I mean was I coming across as pissed or even annoyed?  Cuz thats not the case at all, I'm just excited and ready to see the setlist take a major overhaul is all I'm saying.  But until the day that happens, I'll enjoy the shows for what they are.  And this was a great performance, I really liked it.

I don't care about the set, seeing as my first show was in October and I haven't really had time to get sick of it, but I did have a problem with how sloppy Tom was after Wishing Well up to Christmas, and then back to pretty slops after that song too.

Just watched the show, and I'm impressed with it. I don't consider myself a big blink fan these days and I've come to accept that they just don't sound great live but this was definitely an exception. You still have Tom slurring a bit and some weak guitar tones but it's live music, it's not going to sound like it does on the CD. None of those things sounded 'bad', and certainly not as much as I've come to expect from live Blink. Anybody who doesn't think that was a good performance probably isn't ever going to be impressed by a live Blink performance.

I'm still surprised about how Tom still gets nervous on the shows. You can see it clearly. The main symptom about it is how they (specially Tom) really fight against their songs on the first ones instead of playing them, if you know what I mean. After a few minutes, everything seems to go in its place and starts to sound more fluid, but on the first songs/minutes, they use to struggle with the songs. It's weird.

And well. I'm still convinced about blink being able to do their live shows way better than they are doing them. Obviously, they are not bad (and definitely, we've seen worse concerts from them), but except for some videos here and there, I still can't say that blink is a good band playing live. And hey, I think that it's not really hard to play those songs almost perfect and make them sound better (specially about the guitar, I'm still trying to understand how the fuck that set up sounds THAT bad), but well...
