yeah... I don't know what he's talking about. who would buy tickets that wouldn't want to see Clarity as much as a normal setlist? I'm gonna make this sound cheesy for a second, but this tour is a celebration of Clarity. I couldn't imagine the crowd NOT absolutely loving every second of it. Of course with the songs on the encore, they're less somber than, say, Goodbye Sky Harbor, and many other songs on the record, so of course they'll seem more alive during the encore. That doesn't mean they weren't paying attention to the slower stuff.
im hoping that by some miracle from heaven that they will add another AZ home show, im so pissed i didnt have a job at the time to get tickets, clarity changed my life and perspective on local music when I was in 8th grade, so so sad i am gonna miss it when they come home
