Actually it does matter a little. It' kind of like "what have you done for me lately" thing. The last time I saw them was on this tour and they didn't have any mainstream act opening. I didn't get a set like this at all. It was their greatest hits with like three new ones thrown in. You're right about before that tour playing the first half of HND was a fantasy because they had to wait for the album's 20th anniversary to do it. That's the reason they played it at some shows that tour since it had just turned 20 the year before.

Wow, another regular that you've somehow missed. They rotated that with every other night with Foolin' on their last tour. So to say they don't play it at all isn't true.
