    Default What song will they open with?

    If this belongs in the 2015 tour room my bad but I figured it would get more attention here. My money is on them opening with Panama. They started off the Kimmel show with it , its one of their most popular tunes and the crowd will definitely react strongly to it.

    According to all the haters , they might as well open with 'Where Have All the Good Times Gone ?' and then immediately close the show ... Haha

    Joking . Sort of .

    I don't see them opening with Panama , yet they may choose to go with something other than Unchained , as they have been . Romeo Delight was always a great one .
    Depending on what songs they've been rehearsing , I think the fans would go ballistic for On Fire or Light Up the Sky ...

    I have it from an unknown, idiotic source that they will open with Big Bad Bill--Dave broke Ellen and she will come out (lol) playing a penis shaped, flesh colored clarinet !!!

    On Fire and LUTS would be great choices and even though for the casual fan they'd be considered deep cuts I`d bet they'd still go over great in 2015 as an opener

    My realistic guess: Unchained. It's just a blistering opener and I'd be fine with them opening with that for the rest of their career.

    My want: As Is

    Panama has typically been later in the set , as it's almost 'encore' worthy . I could be wrong , but I just don't see them opening with it .
    I have no bad feelings about it though because Panama is my favorite VH song .

    Yes , I know they started the 2004 tour with Jump , but that was a whole other ball of wax ...

    I think Panama is a great opener and they have never opened with it. Worked well on kimmel the other night. I say they stick with it.

    It still gives me shivers remembering when in 2012 on Night 2 in NYC they opened up with Unchained, after having opened with You Really Got Me the whole first half of the tour including their NYC show two nights earlier. The lights went down, a B&W headshot of the band rose up on the screen, and the opening guitar riff began, sending the crowd into a frenzy that lasted the whole night long! IIRC, they ended up sticking with Unchained as the opener for the rest of the tour.

    Don't forget that they also ripped into The Full Bug in the 4 hole during that show. I think you got a text about that.

    Would love to see them go back to '81 and open with On Fire.
