    When I saw the FUCK tour and Eddie did the electric drill thing, it was a great start to the concert.

    Never saw them with Dave, but the Oakland show where Dave comes off the drum riser with Unchained is absolutely amazing. Puts a giant smile on my face everytime I see it.

    Ed6150, check out this idea that I had a while back for a Dave intro and tell me what you think. Either in the dark or with very minimal light, they play the start of "Dirty Movies" for a couple of minutes and then really break into it. Just a thought.

    The best opening song I have heard them do is "On Fire" That is a pedal to the medal song that gets everyone on their feet....

    I just don't think that you can beat unfuckingchained for an opener. Ed back there in the dark, teasing us with those little, what I call, "tweeker noises". You see a silouette come on the stage.....LIGHTS, PYRO...Unchained baby

    I agree with intruder. They should open with "On Fire", it's a rippin song, and it's what they opened with during their club, and early concert days.

    Took the words right out of my mouth. That was a killer way to open the 3 tour. Especially since they hadn't played it live in so long.

    'Unchained' has always been a favorite
    opener for me. 'Poundcake' was cool with the power drill intro (mentioned before).
    If Dave is back with VH and they do tour,
    hearing 'Unchained' as an opener again wouldn't bother me.

    Some ideas:

    1.) You Really Got Me
    2.) Romeo Delight
    3.) DOA
    4.) Jump

    If they do a reunion tour with Dave I'd like them to open with Mean Street, or On Fire. That'd be cool.

    Whatever they open with, before the lights go up, Dave should say, "Hey I heard ya missed us, we're baaack!" Then they could go into anything that would rip your head off. And of course, Mean Streets or Unchained unless there's one off the new CD that would work better. We have to keep that in mind. A new tour with a new CD.

    Could this be magic?
