I have no reason to expect this or grounds for this demand but BRING BACK NUDE NIGHT


I hope they do change up the setlist with one or two songs while in the states!

I am hoping for a few surprises here and there.

This is up there. Like, Star Guitar up there.

One thing I’m excited about with this tour is that it’s usually the second leg of a Chems promo cycle where the live shows really kick off - think about how they stepped things up, both visually and in terms of the setlist, for the long tail of the WATN tour where they kept on the road to promote Brotherhood, or the leg of the Further tour that doubled as prep for Don’t Think. That break to reconsider and improve an existing setlist has consistently been of great benefit to them. But for No Geography they’ve already done a considerable amount of that legwork ahead of time, with the 2018 festival tour. Three No Geography tracks already have full visuals (or, well, 3.5 if you count “Eve of Destruction”) and the BITE set structure has gotten a thorough rinsing, so I really expect them to come out the gate with something impressive once they’ve added a whole additional layer of tour prep on top of that.
On that note please feel free to examine this still of a Smith+Lyall tour visuals shoot from three weeks ago for evidence of “Nude Night”:

Yes! The 2004-2005 tours I'm reminded of as well - start by touring mainly festivals ahead of the album being finished or released, with a set of hits and a few unreleased songs. Then come back the next year after the release prepared with new songs and ability / desire to tweak the hell out of the setlist after touring it the same way for so long. 2005's average setlist changed at least 4 times over the year and had so many weird surprises pop up. Would be amazing to see that in 2019 and I feel it's much more likely now that Ed's wholly on board again.

Though the number of dates on a tour probably plays into how much they tweak the set too. In 2005 they had about 50 stops on their tour. This year it's 26 (and counting of course).
Never for money, always for love.

hearing this vocal sample is just a constant reminder that I'll never hear actual Golden Path live

and that's enough spoilers for me! Need to go into this knowing as little as possible!

ngl I’ve been checking Smith+Lyall’s not-updated-in-weeks Instagram page with the specific and remote hope that they’ll slip up and include some visual spoilers in a post, so thorough is my inability to wait until May 11, so I can’t really relate

Last tour I had a little personal job of scouring Instagram for any interesting clips of every show they played in the year since their Rockhal debut.

I'm trying not to spoil the show for myself this year either so would anybody like to carry the torch for me? (or should I continue archive?)
I can't take the hearbreak of you leaving me again!!
And I'm not the one I was back then, no, no, no, no!!
One thing I can't take is to sit home all alone!!
Do what you like, my dear, but I'm not staying home!!

Maybe worth noting, on the day before the tour kickoff at Corona, that this photo ostensibly taken at some point during rehearsals has synths labeled with names like “Hoops”, “Reflexion”, “Eve”, “Wide” and “Glint” amidst the more familiar stuff
Also one that might, through the heavy compression, read “TBJ”, but that seems implausible to me

Most likely Hoops will be the transition between S2A (they already tackled the classic blend from S2A so I doubt they'll change it up) and Galvanize

So, today is the day to stay off YouTube and social media for this ruckus.

I will preserve my eyes and ears.

But eventually, I just wanna see 'Hold Tight Los Angeles' when shit does goes down.

That is all!

My prediction: they open with Eve of Destruction.
You wanna know my biggest disappointment for the live sets 2019? You wanna know? I tell you what my biggest disappointment is: I AM FUCKING NOT THERE!

I mean, they kinda have to don't they? It's such a killer album opener, imagine that fading in from tomorrow never knows!
