don't drink the water is one of his darker songs an to lead with it was a head scratcher.
Hate to break it to you, but DDTW is used as an opener for a lot of concerts. In fact, 3 of their most famous concerts were opened with that song. 01's Live at Folsom Field, 02's Gorge Ampitheater and 03's Central Park Concert.
That's not a bad set actually.
DDTW is used as an intro because it starts out slow and quickly progresses it a very powerful and intense song that gets the crowd into it.
Dreamgirl and American Baby are 2 of the IMO only 3 quality songs on Stand Up and Too Much is a song that has a ton of energy and a strong ending.
They aren't my absolute favorites, by all are quality songs and given that they want to play their new songs, Dreamgirl and American Baby are strong choices.
I saw most of their most recent VH1 Storytellers tonight and Dreamgirl and Too Much were played very well. The two best songs I saw though were Ants Marching and the closing with All Along the Watchtower.
