Gotta go with Pain.

It was a great opening number. It set the tone for the show. That show was fast and hard. It was just bam, bam, bam. The audiences at the shows I went to...we're dancing from start to finish.

Tour of the Universe....was a more subtle show. It was a slow gradual build up to four powerful songs...then it slowed down again. Audiences seemed to like it...but it just didn't have the same energy level as TTA.

While I love both songs I would have to vote for APTIUT. I really hope this song makes areturn appearance to a future tour.

But usually the band reserves the first song for their set to new material.

Plus I think APTIUT would be a great number for the band to play when they come back for their first encore.

Between the two - APTIUT. Best ever opener would be Higer Love from the SOFAD tour. Best tour, best album.

I am not asking for Dave to pop up through the stage floor or for the band to be lowered to the stage via crane. It just seems that the past few tours have been a little dull when it comes to the band entrance.

I also agree the last great intro was 98 pain killer dj shadow.then qustion of time......... great energy everyonr stayed on there feet in Vancouver and Seattle for the whole show!
