Setlists of the North American tour, Spring 2009

Postby Maarten » Sun Mar 29, 2009 4:40 am

Hello,

I'm keeping a document with ALL setlists of the tour. Please post the exact setlist here if you have been to a concert, so I can update my file. Also write down the date and venue! (and check my file for mistakes in the content and the actual setlist page).

HINT: print out one of the most recent setlists so you can easily edit/write the setlist on the printed paper!

My pdf-file can be found here:

Thanks in advance and enjoy the concerts over there!

Maarten

(Jarkko: can you please make this topic stay on top? Thanks!)

Hi Marie,

Thanks to both you & Joey for posting the setlist. What song is "Lullaby"? Is it "Hunter's Lullaby"?

Howdy, Joe. Nope, Lullaby is definitely a new song. This might be the song that Leonard played during his Rolling Stone interview (http://www.webheights.net/speakingcohen/rs031909.html).

I hoped for the new setlist or songs like A Thousand Kisses etc. which he is rehearsing (between some standard points, from Dance Me... via Future and Bird to the end), because the DVD/CD is out and the show-goers (particularly in Europe later this Summer) would have a deja-vu during the shows ... but new song is a good surprise :)

Grand Prairie, TX set list 4/03/09 was exactly the same as Austin, TX 4/01/09.

Lullaby was a real treat. It made me cry.

From memory (which may or may not be faulty), I believe the setlist in Phoenix was the same, only substitute "That Don't Make It Junk" for "Lullaby."

NO LULLABY !?!
Does this mean the setlist at the North American venues will be different?
Are we going to be deprived of hearing "Lullaby" in San Diego and Los Angeles?
I am very, very disappointed.

There is a setlist included in the OC Register's excellent review of the LA concert on April 10 at the Nokia Live.

Just a note, the setlist for Los Angeles on the 11th is the same exact as the setlist for the 10th.

Hi,
Nice to see everybody was helping to write down the setlists while I was on skiing holidays! :-)
Thanks Marie and all the others for their contributions!

Back in Belgium, so here's the update:

Not sure if I should post this here as its for set lists so delete if necessary! Just wondering, the songs on the right in smaller type on the set lists, are they just extras that might be added to a set depending on how the gig is going? or have many of them been played as extras or substitutes?

Maarten, excellent job on the set lists pdf!
