What song would you love to hear the ABB play as an opener that usually is not.

I watched them play Jessica as an opener at SPAC in 2005 that was great. Firing line would be nice.

I saw them open with Mountain Jam in 2005 at Montage mountain in Scranton. It was a cool show opener.

I'd like to hear "End Of The Line" as an opener.

End of the Line is an excellent choice also.

Les Brers - ( I know it's been used as an opener but not very often)
-- didn't see the previous when writing this - I guess we think alike!

Can't take it with you (has a lot of energy)

End of the line was my first choice, but since it has already surfaced, I think an instrumental would be nice as it gives the band many directions in which to take the show. My next thought was Les Brers but Hank got it out first, so, out on a limb but a Derek/Warren High Falls would be very pleasing and give many options for the band to take the show.

In 1999 and early 2000, they opened with 11-12 minute versions of True Gravity. It was great. Derek really soared on that song (taking the solo spots originally done by Warren & Johnny N). I think it was the highlight of the brief Derek/Dickey lineup. I'd LOVE to see the current lineup nail a similar version as an opening tune.

I will say that the Whippin Post opener at Great Woods a few years ago must have caught some people by surprise!

Whipping Post - that must have been kick-ass.

Imagine the first tune you hear that bass rumble... Wait, what? WP opener? Oh, yeah!

hotlantatim is correct on this one. True Gravity was an excellent opener in 1999-2000, and it would be an excellent opener now.

I've posted in other threads that True Gravity is the one real Holy Grail for this lineup to tackle. If they don't want to open with it, a nice 45 minute version with drum and bass solos as the centerpiece of the show would be just fine too

They opened with that at Saratoga in '08 I think, and it was so bad. There were many points in the song where Gregg, Derek, Warren and Oteil were all playing different parts, and it was painfully obvious. But I'm sure it'd be great if they all knew the song.

A bunch of us were there!

"Blues Hour" with Warren, Derek & Jack Pearson.

Wharfy got the HTN front row upgrade, we hit Dave Ashton's BBQ pre-show party.

Rich & the Red Volvo Crew blew out a hose on their car and had to be towed off the mountain.

They left me a pretzel on my windshield that I gave to Wharfy when I left the next day.

Many happy memories.
