Whatís the first song DMB plays at the first show when they resume touring?

Are they gonna go epic with a Last Stop or JTR, safe with a Too Much or OSW, or make us pretend we love TGIY or Bayou just because we’re happy to be at a concert again?

Maybe they make everyone happy and do the right thing by opening with Ants.

I think BOWA and Hello Again are the best choices.

Drive In, Drive Out.

We’ll make up a new god, and have a little pandemic of our own.

Granny is also a good choice.

I should answer my own question: I said they should open with Ants, but my guess is definitely One Sweet World.

Ants with the snare intro ala R2T should be the only choice, but youíre right, OSW has to be the leader on the board.

Unfortunately I don’t think Dave will make an effort to have it be “significant” and it will just be whatever he feels that day vs thought out.
Hello Again would be my choice if I was doing it. I would start right with “Hello Again it’s been too long to long too long hello again” and drop into the actual song/music

They might. They opened with #41 at the 41st Gorge show. They opened with Why I Am on Roi's birthday in 2019. They opened with WTWE at 12/21/12. They opened with JTR at 6/18/10 when a storm postponed the show until 11pm.

I agree from time to time they have done special openers. 41 at the 41st show at hartford too...

However, they may also think playing DDTW is special too because its a 'hard rock song'. This is DMB we are talking about after all.

I hope Dave carries his adventurism from the past year into the tour. The song spread from his solo/D&C sets has been phenomenal.

Ants
Billies
Best

First song should be a celebration for every person there. Not a free form jazz odyssey or what a percentage would think as a deep cut.

Even Don’t Drink fits though less so.
