If you were there you probably don't care. This night was the best of the entire stand. The first night was Prince as soulful, seducing lover. The second was the Purple One as grandmaster of ceremonies at the funkiest party you've ever been to. Tonight, a true guitar hero hit the stage and shredded it for more than two and a half hours. In two words, it was fucking incredible. Details and more thoughts to follow, but here's the initial (and likely incomplete- to be explanined and rationalized later) list:
First song- set starts at 8:35- no opening set by GCM. Set lasts almost three hours.
The Love We Make
Take Me With You
AnotherLoverHoleInYourHead (total metal verion)
Glamorous Life (toughest version of all three night)
A Love Bizarre
Controversy Reprise (not at all like the previous night)
Nothing Compares 2 U
She's Always in My Hair
Welcome 2 America
Let's Go Crazy
Little Red Corvette
Lady Cab Driver
Thank You Fa Lettin' Me Be Mice Elf (again)
I Wanna Be Your Lover
Snippet: Single Ladies
Under the Cherry Moon
When Doves Cry
Darling Nikki snippet
The Most Beautiful Girl in World
I Would Die For You
Sign O' the Times
U Got the Look
The last medley, starting with Single Ladies, isn't in exact order and Anne Enigma helped put some of this together. What can I say? It was a three hour show.
The Minister's Rebellious Daughter put it best: it was an evening of "sexual chocolate and tiny porn."
More details to follow. the setlists for the other nights (complete) are here- just look for them.
These shows got better as each night unfolded, and each night had an incredibly different vibe than the others. These weren't only great concerts- this was three nights of intense musical theater. Incredible.
