The Evening With format will magically return for the show at the Warfield in San Fran on 07.01.12 wheb they tape the show for a dvd...
...hey, a girl can dream right? In all seriousness, I would really like to see this happen again! I would pay a lot of money and do unspeakable things to see and Evening With show
When I see the energy expended by the band in the current format, I consider myself lucky to get an honest 2 hour show. The level that they play at is probably in the 5% percentile of all bands. How is it that James has any voice at all after doing 20 of these shows in a month? It's sick! Same with the others. Also, they are not 20 anymore and neither are most of us. A 3 hour show would be superfluous. How many notes can I ingest in one night? A 2 hour DT show is evening enough for me. Especially since I usually attend 3 or 4 shows on each tour.
Besides, proper concert protocol is to tailgate in the parking lot or stop at a restaurant, hang out, enjoy the show, get breakfast after the show. You can easily spend 8 or 9 hours doing the whole thing. That's enough entertainment for me. A 3.5 hour show is too damned long.
