1983 Setlist


1983 - Setlist


Info below is based on concert recollections and recordings.
Because of the theatrical set-up of the show, the setlist was basically the same every night...


First Set:
Psycho Killer
Heaven
Thank You For Sending Me An Angel
Love -> Building On Fire
The Book I Read
Slippery People
Cities
Big Blue Plymouth
Burning Down The House
Life During Wartime

Second Set:
Making Flippy Floppy
Swamp
What A Day That Was
This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)
Once In A Lifetime
Big Business
I Zimbra
Houses In Motion
Genius Of Love
Girlfriend Is Better
Take Me To The River
Encore: Crosseyed & Painless


On August 6th, and August 9th thru September 4th, a second encore was added; a repeat/reprise of Burning Down the House.


On the second leg of the tour, Pull Up the Roots was added as an Encore; but only played at Plattsburgh 09/30, UVM 10/01, and Providence 10/04 -- after which it was inexplicably dropped. Crosseyed & 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 a truncated (argh!) version of Found a Job.
