  • Back to the standard structure again.

  • Lay Your Hands On Me opens the show, Bad Medicine and Runaway move up to the beginning and Something For The Pain opens the part after the acoustic set again.

  • All I Want Is Everything returns.

  • Lie To Me is rotated out and Diamond Ring / Bed Of Roses return to their usual spot.

  • I’ll Be There For You replaces I’d Die For You.

  • Keep The Faith finishes the main set and Hey God completes the “These Days triplet” in the first encore.

  • Drift Away and My Guitar Lies Bleeding In My Arms are added to the second encore whereas Stranger In This Town gets dropped.

  • Damned is dropped.

  • The audience was overwhelmingly loud all night long and after Blaze Of Gloy, Jon jokingly told them that he’d no longer have a job if they kept singing like that.

  • This Ain’t A Love Song returns as the final song of the night.
