October 5, 2004 Fox Theater – St. Louis, MO

Show Notes

PJ makes a return to the Fabulous Fox Theatre, a beautiful, acoustically sound venue, after ten years. Ed is wearing a brown shirt with Bush’s face on it that says “Expires Nov ’04.” After ‘Corduroy,’ Ed says, “It’s about time this group played a classy joint!” (in comparison to the prior arenas). ‘Alone’ again catches many off guard and Ed’s vocals are nearly spot on with the original recordings but the harmonies are missing, filled by guitarwork. ‘Wishlist’ has the “I wish I was the president …” tag and includes some language about Dick Cheney and how you can’t sacrifice the lives of American men and women for a war that appears to be profit driven … “it will be Dick Cheney who is not forgiven.” This leads to a well-received and strong ‘RVM,’ concluding the first set. Upon returning, there is a toast to St. Louis and one to the whole state with some discussion about how only 1/3 of those between 18 and 22 vote and a plea to register and vote and that they don’t really care how people vote. Ed says actually they do care (“That’s why we’re here …”) and that leads to a lovely ‘Patriot’ with just Ed and his guitar. ‘MOTH’ is dedicated to Johnny Ramone, really lovely and a nice showcase for Ed’s deep range. ‘Elderly Woman’ includes a bauble (Ed notes, “I fucked up”) and he could tell since the crowd was singing along. ‘Off He Goes’ is beautiful and ‘All Or None’ again seems to be a bit lost on the crowd (and it would be nice to see Mike go a bit longer on the ending solo). Ed turns the end of ‘Black’ over to the crowd and it is a nice finish to the acoustic set. The next set begins with the normally quiet Stone talking quite a bit, thanking St. Louis and reminding people it is important to vote. Very solid set follows with so much excitement during ‘DTE’ that someone in the front of the balcony nearly falls. A brief, cheerful band huddle follows and they go with Mike’s selection of ‘SOLAT’ to keep the momentum going. ‘Wishlist’ slows things down but has a solid ‘Save It For Later’ tag with some “please vote” lyrics intermingled. During ‘The New World,’ Tim Robbins and Ed square off and slam into each other (you can guess who won … not Ed; Tim is tall!). The fun continues into a high spirited ‘Fortunate Son.’ Ed toys with the Bush mask a bit but there is no ‘Bushleaguer.’ ‘YL’ finishes, featuring a short ‘Star Spangled Banner’ tag by Mike.
