Perhaps error in 1990-07-22 setlist?
« on: October 06, 2015, 09:38:05 pm »
Someone claimed on Facebook that Martin sang Blue Dress on 1990-07-22, and that the setlist that is copy/pasted on the web is thus wrong. I just asked him for more info. https://www.facebook.com/slicingupeyeballs/photos/a.10150588176768818.398526.55585193817/10152554159668818/?type=3&comment_id=10152555013458818&offset=50&total_comments=64&comment_tracking=%7B%22tn%22%3A%22R7%22%7D

Do any of you have a bootleg of this to confirm?

Yes, there is a recording from that concert - I will try to verify that Dave says something like "good evening Sacramento" to make sure it's not a mislabel. Martin did indeed play "I Want You Now" / "World Full Of Nothing" as it appears on the wiki. "Blue Dress" and "Little 15" were only played twice & three times, respectively:

The recording is quite muffled, but regardless you can still hear Dave shout out "good evening Sacramento!"
Facebook guy is totally wrong. I think he's thinking of 1990-07-31, third night in San Diego, where Martin did perform "Blue Dress". I replied to him on Facebook.

I was there. I was a little confused at first because I thought for sure he played "Never Turn Your Back on Mother Earth", but that was the previous tour, same venue. I remember "I Want You Now" distinctly, because it was that fantastic "house mix" version (or whatever it's being called).

Martin played "i want you now" only with an acoustic guitar on that tour. You´re probably thinking of the performance during the 1994 tour.
