Don't forget, that for the last 10 years or so Mark also needs to figure out setlist by his vocal abilities. Despite being an outstanding singer on records, he's not as perfect live as he used to be (if you can call that singing :lol).

I'm pretty much convinced that 5:15 am was dropped so early because of the song being too difficult to sing live. So he has to pick songs that's not too hard to play, not too hard to sing, but also remain unpredictable and fresh. An extremely difficult task if you ask me... And One Song At A Time could be another "too much of a song", it seems.

Good point there and would certainly explain why Trapper Man hasn't made the set; can't imagine that sort of enthusiastic vocal live these days.  OSAAT I find easy to sing along to though, but it could just suit my voice.  MFN and Once Upon a Time would both benefit from a bit more oomph, the reason R&J and BIA haven't been so good for years.  In fact the last time his vocal has any energy or enthusiasm was the BIA tour!

You need energy to sing Why ayeee, why ayeeee man !! attempted in Barcelona

How come I'm so surprised when the tide rolled in

Hey Lis, where's the picture from our short but wonderful meetup? It's the first time I've seen somebody from AMIT IRL, so it's a big deal :lol
Big kudos to Dutchessy for connecting us, it was a true miracle of Facebook magic. And hopefully Lis will say I'm not as rude IRL as online :lol

Put Broken Bones next to this and hear the resemblance, it's practically the same, the intro I'm talking about

That's why I was so sure that Nobody does that will be played and that will open the concert.

Practically was the same that broken bones but better.
You might get lucky, now and then

It sounds like the opener for a Graeme Blevins and Tom Walsh concert - not an MK concert!   :-\

Nobody Does That sounds good and I understand that this is the first song but Why Aye Man should stay. I recall the tour in 2007 Cannibals and Why Aye Man.

Oh man I remember Cannibals and it's the best song to open a concert... Fast, energetic and fun. A great tour it was!

A great tour indeed, with lots of songs heard live for the first time from Ragpicker's Dream - extended Marbletown, HFB, Devil Baby, Daddy's Gone to Knoxville and opening with Cannibals.   It was wonderful for me to be there on the first night in Amsterdam and to have so many surprises!    :)

I thought Cannibals as played in 2008 was so slow, dull and lifeless compared to earlier versions.  The worst decision as a starter until BB in 2015.

But in Amsterdam the rest of the show was so great (until hearing TR new first half).
