Hi Wendy,

The alternatives are:

Heart With No Companion
That Don't Make It Junk
Passing Through
The Gypsy's Wife
One of Us Cannot Be Wrong (wouldn't that be amazing! :D )
A Thousand Kisses Deep
There is a War
Avalanche
Lullaby

I'll post the sheet once I figure out how to scan it.

Thanks Mary! What is interesting - and quite disappointing in a way - is that there are so many songs on the list that were also alternativs on the setlist way back last autumn in Europe but which have not yet been performed publicly - to my knowledge anyway. Oh to hear One of Us Cannot be Wrong, There is a War, A Thousand Kisses Deep or Passing Through - not too mention Lullaby and Avalanche which have only been performed infrequently.

I don't suppose there will be any more changes now but if anyone is reading this: I would love to hear One of Us Cannot be Wrong or Lullaby in Ottawa!!

Oh, I´ve seen, The Partisan wasn`t there at all the setlists :cry:

I hope, this song will be at the Setlist for the following Europe Tour
and also the Famous blue Raincout and Who by fire

I miss the Partisan and Famous blue Raincoat so much at the DVD :?

Wouldn't that be wonderful! So many people are coming to Ottawa from all over the world, it would be amazing to hear One of Us Cannot Be Wrong for the frst time here. My only problem is, what song would he drop? I love them all! :D

I'm still on a "high" after attending last night's concert at the Wang Center and probably will be for days. The set list as reported agrees with the notes I took--everything was wonderful, spiritual, emotional, sexy, serious, funny. All the qualities that make us love Leonard and his music. I would have liked to have heard
The Gypsy's Wife (as I did in Montreal last June), but happily traded it off for Chelsea Hotel, Famous Blue Raincoat and Waiting for the Miracle. Even after 3+ hours, I didn't want to leave the theater!
