Great show. I meant to take notes as to the setlist, but was having too much fun. Feel free to correct me below as to things I'd missed. Fantastic to see them together for the first time since the show I went to at the Moore in 1999 in Seattle. I'm sure some of my order below is incorrect, but I didn't see it on the boards, so figured I'd put it up for what it's worth...  \m/

Pyser? It's been a few months since I've seen that on a list.  AND STEEEEEEEEEVENS. STEVEN'S. I CAN GET BEHIND THAT
AND no shit when it comes to the BFFC existing for meet and greet streaks. Mine got killed too. Though.... if you go to http://www.benfoldsfanclub.com you might be amused.

I was at this show too...when Ben broke his string for whatever reason he asked me to guess which string it was...I guessed incorrectly that it was a B-flat.

I'd been waiting 13 years to see those three together and it pretty much maid my life!! The only thing I was disappointed about was that Magic was in the setlist for the encore but they skipped it.
