    Default Which Tour did Ed and Mikey start singing WCTBL?

    I know they all took a line on the 1995 tour, but did they start doing this on any tours prior?

    No, they began doing it in 1995. I was listening to some boots, and Sam did it in the 3/11 show, but then we move up a month to 4/15 in Detroit and they share lead vocals

    I was pretty sure they did a few times on 93, I was thinking it wasn't planned and you can tell. I could be wrong, I've drank lots of beer since then.

    Yea they did start doing it prior to 95. I think the earliest I've heard it was 93, and maybe even the OU812 tour, but I'd have to check my videos.

    I always thought it was cool how they did that. It's also cool to find Mikey singing the high parts to dreams as early as 1986.

    They started signing it about 1/4 way through the Balance tour. If you check out the Pensacola 95 show Sam tries to get Ed to do a line in the 2nd verse and he just kind of smiles. But down the road in the tour they both (mike and ed) started in.
    They both also started singing a line in One Way To Rock.
    My question is back in 95 when they did Jump, why in the 2nd verse did mikey say, "I think I just shit my pants"
    I could never figure this one out. I know he was joking around but I dont know why he would say that. Must have been in inside joke or something becuase I have a whole bunch of 95 shows where mikey says it.

    Really? I thought it was the 1998 VH3 tour when he said that

    I always thought 95 was the first time Ed and Mike sang some of the main vocals.

    I believe if any of you guys have seen the opening night on Balance in Pensecola Florida, sam puts the mic in front of eddie for "You 've got to run to win"....and eddie got embarrased to sing it....so...maybe they figured out that it would be cool to shre the vocals after the opening night????
