    Default Hey Wolf

    LUTS is not a good opener. It will fit better 3rd. Unchained has never felt right anywhere else in the set except as the opener. There is not a more powerful opening riff in the history of rock than Unchained. Also an obscure opening song for people seeing VH for the first time is not the ideal way to fire them up. Phenominal set list, man.

    LUTS is THE perfect opener, it would not fit anywhere else in the set.

    That song comes out "all guns blazing."
    "Unchained" is a more mid-paced chugger, better later in the set.

    You want to come out & just hit them hard, then ease into the other stuff.

    Perfect for outdoor shows!

    Yeah, we're all fast breakers comin' out of the gates takin' chances. We're the crash and burn.
    Yeah, there is a way with beauty, but you never gave a love cross the line where none return.
    I watch my television; almost lost my mind.
    It said, "Open your eyes. Leave it all behind."
    I heard the wind a whisp'rin', strong magic comin' on!
    They comin' out for sure.
    Come see your children; yeah, they're lighting up the skies.
    Won't recognize them any more.
    Ooh, mama, see the firelight.
    Ooh, we're comin' out tonight.
    Wolves at my door wised up quick.
    Turn here and gone from on the go.
    Seems the old folks who come up short were the pretty little kids who didn't want it, no.
    I had to pay admission when I came tonight.
    And it said, "Open my eyes. Leave it all behind."
    I heard the wind a whisp'rin', strong magic comin' on!
    They comin' out for sure.
    Come see your children; yeah, they're lighting up the skies.
    Won't recognize them any more.
    Ooh, mama, see the firelight.
    Ooh, lightin' up the sky.

    Light up the sky.
    Light up the sky.
    Light 'em up!

    I do like Unchained as the opener but LUTS is definitely a great opener!

    LUTS is an EXCELLENT opener and if 50 year old casual fan is too busy wearing his corporate polo shirt to know LUTS, DM, ect., then F 'em.

    LUTS works.

    I mean, in my dream world the opener this tour would be ON FIRE, but they can't hit those harmonies

    Opening with LUTS worked fine in 79, and i think it is a great opening song for this tour.

    If not used as an opener, Unchained would be great after the drum solo.

    I don't think Wolf read this forums. All concerns and suggestions need to be posted on his twitter account.

    Heck Unchained was towards the end in 81 , 2nd song in the set in 82 , after Eds solo in 93 , I think after the drum solo in 07/08. It seems to work well everywhere
