LTEF - Glad you had a great time. When I heard the you tube videos of SSB and LE I thought they were only so so. What did you think since you were there ? The others sounded great. I checked East yesterday and there were still seats left - those mostly between $300-$450 for just Saturday's show(I did not check Sunday since the guys are not playing then).
I am sure Irving has been busy booking dates as I write this.

Why do you think that again there were no songs from LROOE?
It would have been good to hear How Long or Busy Being Fabulous.

Think LROOE died a death after they omitted it from HOTE, if material doesn't get revived for a celebration of your entire catalogue then it's in trouble.

Whilst I would be partial to having the superb How Long back in the set, I believe Henley doesn't care for Busy Being Fabulous, who I would guess now has a rather firm grip on their performance. I also think a lot of it doesn't fit too well with their 70s work / current set: I can't imagine there's much hope for the likes of uber-gentle Waiting in the Weeds or the utterly wonderful but light years long title track being brought back in a sea of Already Gone and Witchy Woman for example.

I feel like I should be whispering - some more videos have been posted and they are from a good angle - slightly elevated and from Timothy's side. They show the entire front line (ie you can see Timothy and Steuart) as well as many of the backing musicians. During LITFL, Joe attempts to kick Steuarts's butt. Less good for watching the least vocalist but great for seeing how they work together.

To tell the truth. I thought they might bust into How Long because usually when they sing Seven Bridges Road, How Long follows, but who would sing How Long with Don since it was co-lead song.

They did play How Long a few times on the HOTE tour. The Forum(only one show and I think that was January 15th), Stateline, NV concert and a few shows in Europe(mostly the festival shows).

If they ever play a song from LROOE, it will be How Long.

They did open with How Long at the Wang Center in Boston in September, as well. It was during the HOTE tour, but it was a benefit for Walden Woods so the song choices were a little different. They also did Dirty Laundry that night.

I can't imagine them doing it now, since as Shun said, Don and Glenn sang the co-leads on it.

Thanks, maryc2130. I did see that on setlist.fm and we know its not always accurate. I forgot that was the Walden Woods benefit concert.

They might had Deacon sing it with Don. It seems a little suitable for his voice. I need to go back watching the videos I saved to see how well Deacon blended with Don when Don is harmonizing. I heard him with Vince and they blended good.

I'm not surprised there were no songs from LROOE because they eliminated them from the HotE tour and I guess we'll never know why. There are several from it that I love.
