Best "Starting Run"?

Here's a question for you all. What is your favorite starting run of songs in an LP setlist? For example the first 5-9 songs or whatever you want to do it. For example at my first LP show I saw this:

 

http://lplive.net/shows/20070807.php

 

01. Wake

02. Given Up

03. No More Sorrow

04. Lying From You

05. Don't Stay

06. Somewhere I Belong

07. From The Inside

08. Papercut

09. Points Of Authority

 

They start with Wake which gradually builds and then do 8 hard songs in a row before taking a break. Literally back to back to back all down the set right there. It's my favorite PR07 setlist because Wake opens instead of killing the vibe in the middle of the set. Pure rocking right here. They've done some others though that are like this, including their new set (APFMH to SIB). What's your favorite?

I would say the new set is really good start:

 

01. A Place For My Head Long Intro; Ext. Outro

02. Given Up Ext. Outro w/ Extra Note

03. Faint Ext. Outro

04. With You 2012 Ext. Intro; Ext. Scratch Outro

05. Runaway

06. From The Inside Ext. Intro

07. Somewhere I Belong 2012 Ext. Intro, False Start

08. Numb

09. LIES GREED MISERY

I think the What I've Done/Faint/No More Sorrow combo they used to open a lot of shows in 2008 was perfect. They basically did those 3 songs without ANY kind of pause in between them, with the AMBO intro on WID it kept the energy going for a solid 12 minutes or so to kick off the show.

apart from the current set I would say something like this: (that was btw. Mannheim 2008, my second LP show)

 

01. No More Sorrow

02. Lying From You

03. Somewhere I Belong

04. Wake 2.0

05. Given Up

06. Papercut

07. Points Of Authority

 

This show also had the best "ending run" (encore) I've ever seen from LP

 

18. Cure For The Itch

19. A Place For My Head

20. Faint Ext. Outro

21. One Step Closer

I have been to 12 LP shows, my first being Bamboozle in 2007 and my last being MSG 2011. The best starting run I have seen was in Manchester, NH in 2008 for the MTM Arena Tour. It had a crazy energy and the band brought it. I also love HHH live, I think I'm the only one that ever did.

 

1. What I've Done (AMBO Intro)

2. Faint

3. No More Sorrow

4. Somewhere I Belong

5. Lying From You

6. From The Inside

7. Points Of Authority (W/ It's Goin' Down Verse)

8. Hands Held High

9. Wake/Given Up

Adelaide, Australia - 09.12.2010

 

01. The Requiem

02. Wretches And Kings

03. Lying From You

04. Given Up

05. What I've Done

06. No More Sorrow

07. From The Inside

 

Personal bias for being at this show. :) This was the debut of this opening combination, and also only the third time that From The Inside had been played in 2010 up till this point.

04. Lying From You

05. Don't Stay

08. Papercut

I'm gonna agree with Mark on the bias that they did this setlist at the first show I saw them at, MSG 08, where they also played APFMH. The set was just killer at that point in their careers. The WID opener setlist is also killer to listen to in the DSP's.

The set I chose was from that tour as well. I think that tour was really good, set wise, and energy wise. LP was really energetic during the MTM tour, then during 2009 and the ATS tour and now, their energy has seemed to decrease..

Um, no. How can you say that about 2009?

Another great starting run. Listening to the DSP now.

 

01. Session

02. Given Up

03. From The Inside

04. Somewhere I Belong

05. No More Sorrow (Long intro)

06. Points Of Authority (High Voltage/Bloc Party/POA intro; RME outro)

07. What I've Done (AMBO intro)

 

Fucking awesome. Germany knows how to rock. Band was in great form, crowd was exploding and going insane the entire show and overall it was one of the best LP shows I've ever seen. Second only to the first time I ever saw them (extreme bias).

7. From the Inside

 

This is from the NY 2/4/11 show. It was the best opener of the shows I've been too. I love Faint as an opener. The rest of the line up can be moved around.

12 relentless, aggressive songs. They get halfway through their setlist before taking a break to go soft. It's insane and unheard of from the band since the old days!!
