    Default VH: if you do tour next year...

    Please start the show in the dark when you jam on stage and THEN have the light come down on Ed when he launches into the opener. I like that anticipation, the buildup...

    Start the show in the dark, with the first 40 seconds of this song. A nice nod to the other era...

    I liked the way the 2012 tour started . It felt like a return to their club days in a way . Just a MUCH bigger club ... Haha

    On a side note, if there's a tour, that would require rehearsals. And Ed is headlining one of the smithsonian gigs. This will most likely be a summer jaunt, maybe a May start, if that...

    If Mike is back there is only one way to start

    Complete darkness, train horn
    Spotlight lands on Mike holding JD up above his head
    We hear the thumping E
    Bon Bon Bon

    Running with the Devil

    That sounds cool but replace Unchained with Runnin With the Devil if we're gonna say Mike's back.
