Jimmy Eat World Set Lists and Review

Filed under: Concert Listing — rockshowmusic @ 8:18 pm

Welcome back to The Rock Show, where it’s all about the music.  Jimmy Eat World just played two shows nearby:  the House of Blues Atlantic City and the Crocodile Rock.  I wasn’t at either of them (I saw them on the first leg of the tour back in October), but according to the set lists from the shows, they were really great.  Here they are:

@The House of Blues, Feb 11

  1. Bleed American
  2. My Best Theory
  3. Coffee & Cigarettes
  4. Your New Aesthetic
  5. Let It Happen
  6. Polaris
  7. Futures
  8. Big Casino
  9. Dizzy
  10. Action Needs an Audience
  11. Pain
  12. 23
  13. Evidence
  14. Hear You Me
  15. For Me This is Heaven
  16. Work

  18. Blister
  19. Goodbye Sky Harbor

  3. Sweetness

For comparison, here’s the set they played back in October at the Electric Factory:

  1. Bleed American
  2. Your New Aesthetic
  3. A Praise Chorus
  4. My Best Theory
  5. Let It Happen
  6. For Me This is Heaven
  7. Futures
  8. Big Casino
  9. Action Needs an Audience
  10. Dizzy
  11. Coffee & Cigarettes
  12. Movielike
  13. Hear You Me
  14. Evidence
  15. Work
  16. Blister
  17. Goodbye Sky Harbor

Encore

  1. 23
  2. Pain
  3. The Middle
  4. Sweetness

They seem to be playing most of the same stuff, although I’m very jealous that they started playing “Polaris,” a song I would have absolutely loved to hear at the show I went to.  Not to mention, at the Crocodile Rock they played “Thinking, That’s All,” which has got to be one of the deepest vault tunes they have.  It looks like they started the tour playing it safe by doing most of the hits and very few surprises (maybe just “Dizzy” and “Goodbye Sky Harbor”), but as the tour went on it seems they’re dropping some hits in favor of vault stuff like “Polaris,” “Lucky Denver Mint,” and “Thinking, That’s All.”  Either way, they’re definitely putting on a great show assuming they’re still playing like they did back in October.

Here’s a review from the Crocodile Rock show: http://blogs.mcall.com/lehighvalleymusic/2011/02/review-emotions-still-define-jimmy-eat-worlds-music-.html#tp.
