A thank you, universal in nature, for being here. For the mighty SP embarks on another European tour, 31+ years on. The wildest of rides. And so many friends made along the way. The other day I found myself musing on a much beloved musician, the kind everyone liked to like (I like them, too), but certainly their music is not respected per se as I'd hope I've gained some modicum of it from you. Anyway, I said to a friend, if I had it to do all over again I'd still choose the harder road in music and in public life. The road less traveled (a poem which always spoke to me, obv) versus one of back patting and slavish, numbing approval. Not everyone agrees with that inclination, and I can certainly respect why: life is short, and why be grim when you can party, or laugh, or yeah, be liked? I said many, many times when I was young (in my 20's) that I'd have preferred (and this was honest, btw) to belong, to not be some loner outcast archetype against the grunge cash grab. That if I'd been made to feel I belonged as a teenager there'd be no Billy the Vampire Bat, or Zero, and so on. So note: I DID WANT TO BELONG; it just didn't happen. But it's not in the Corgan or Maes bloodlines, anywho, to be-long. It's not who we are; confusing as that is to us. My son is the same way. He is just is a natural iconoclast. He doesn't try to be that way, he is that way. And the world, particularly now, needs it's windmill chasers and it's linguistic assassins and yes, it's ageing Goths. Long live the Goths. And God bless you who hath made this crazy dream possible. In you, you have made it immortal. And it will outlive us all, which is majestic. So thank YOU. As they say in Cali: you are rad. See you at those shows, SP and WPC, too. Lots of music, new memories, new memes. New stupidities. The true Gods will roar. And the little gods will cower behind their manicured beards and plastic weapons of mass destruction. Bite from the apple ye saints, the poison will do ye good... -WPC

Not nearly as bad as it could have been re: inclusion of post-Machina material

the inclusion of a BC solo track is kind of surprising as well - wonder how long 'til we start getting SP versions of DIA or something

Spaniards was first played on the Plainsong tour in a better form, when it showed up on Ogilala it was sapped of what energy it had

Not gonna lie, I'd be damn excited to hear Tiberius live.

Too many covers, and I can't believe they played G.L.O.W, but Aeroplane redeems it.

Wish You Were Here at least kinda makes sense beyond simply being a "top tier classic rock inclusion" for the fact that he actually played it with members of Pink Floyd at their induction

Street Fighting Man seems like it could go down well, tbh

Both seem more exciting to me than them tryna do Stairway every night, in any case

billy always goes offstage while james sings? i understand he had a costume change during the shiny tour, is that still so?

maybe he thinks he's giving him all the space to lead, but it kinda looks more like he can't be bothered to accompany him as a band member.

James is like the sweet, lime-infused Corona chaser after Billy's low-grade tequila stage banter

lol @ G.L.O.W

jesus. The rest are pretty interesting choices

Didn't Billy confirm there's an Oceania track they were rehearsing for this tour? I wonder if this song made the cut and will pop up in a set list soon. He also made reference to the band rehearsing Bodies as well. I find it interesting Silvery was left out (I don't like the song but given it's overall 'warm' reception I thought it would be in every night).

I'm hoping the set lists will have some variety show to show. I'm pretty interested to hear Street Fighting Man

Stage setup looks great!

Superchrist with James has piqued my interest. The rest is a bit of a greatest hits snoozefest.
