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.
Some recording from that night (not mine):
