    I heard that Steven Wilson recorded all of their shows at full resolution multitrack audio, every night just to 'take the red light fever away', I never thought that was the case.
    The venue has rights as a recording site, otherwise bands could just use them as a studio that pays you to be there

    I've had the pleasure of seeing most of my favorite songs live in only five shows. However, God Given, Ruiner, and Various Methods of Escape are the ones I haven't seen that I would love to see.

    So very many, but if I'm supposed to pick just one, I'm going to have to go with "The Great Below", which completely disappeared from shows after Fragility.

    See,"We're In This Together" has been done like five or seven times. So technically, it's in the realm of possibility. Reality, though....

    I would Love Big man with a gun though.

    Unfortunately, through the 8 shows I've seen and 79 unique songs, I've never had the chance to catch The Becoming.

    That's my realistic choice.
    But HiS is my true first choice.

    Don't feel bad. When he brought The Becoming back in '09, he stripped all the balls from the song. That acoustic guitar and lack of bass behind everything ruins the song. I hope he keeps it in mothballs unless he's going to match the album version more. And if that requires more backing tapes or whatever, then so what. I HATE the version he's played since '09.

    Have you seen this video of it? Watching JMJ play the finger cymbals with such serious intent is fantastic. Rob's video misses that for some reason

    5 shows over 4 tours and I haven't seen Burn yet. That's gotta be the top of my list. (Suck would be fun, too.)

    They are probably the two songs I could do without and seen too much.

    Saw NIN 5 times and somehow managed to not see terrible lie at any shows. So yeah, terrible lie, please!

    Other than that happiness in slavery would be rad as hell but is very unlikely.

    Reptile. The kicker is that it was on the setlist for my first show in Greensboro back in 2008, but they didn't end up playing it.

    I would literally stab a baby for The Fragile, The Becoming or The Way Out Is Through.

    IMHO no TF performance has topped the MTV one. Dammit

    Into the Void.

    My St. Louis show in 2013 was robbed of that sadly as I think it was a staple early on into the Tension tour. Worst part was that I had to sit through Echoplex for the third fucking time for three different tours in a row, 2008-2009-2013...

    The becoming.
    I saw NIN TWICE on TDS and no The Becoming.
    And to make it even worse, he teased the crowd by singing "and god damn this noise inside my head" just randomly into the microphone at one point and then started playing something else.

    IIRC the only times they played it back then was on the David Bowie tour.

    I'd have to say Ruiner, simply for how difficult it is to find a good recording of it (though what I have heard is supremely intense). One of my favorite moments on any of the albums.

    I was being sarcastic Re: impatience about new music.
    When was this played live? 'Has not been played live.' This doesn't fit the criteria? Being sincere now, officer.

    Wow is that even possible? Do you always arrive late?

    On that tour it was pretty standard for him to say that line (for no particular reason) at the end of "Dead Souls".
