Encore: Crosseyed & Painless


From August 9th thru September 4th, a second encore was added; a repeat of Burning Down the House.

On the second leg of the tour, Pull Up the Roots was added as an Encore; only played at Plattsburgh 09/30, UVM 10/01, and Providence 10/04 -- after which it was inexplicably dropped. Crossyed & Painless was skipped at Plattsburgh.

For the Pantages shows during the movie filming, Love -> Building on Fire and The Book I Read were removed from the setlist and replaced by Found a Job.
