As for the "weird" interplay that crystalline mentioned-- when Lindsey said he never left FM, he was referring to the time AFTER "The Dance" (he talked about how he did band stuff and solo stuff to feed his artistic side). He was definitely not trying to claim that he NEVER left the band at all.
As for the "had my way with her songs" comment, I think they were both laughing about it. They both seemed in great spirits and it showed in their performance. Definitely hoping they add more shows to the tour, as I would love to see it again!
One final note: I'm impressed that they didn't play it totally safe with the set list. Sure, those of who have seen Lindsey solo have heard many of these versions before, but I'm really surprised we got "Wish You Were Here" and "Hold Me"-- not to mention the fact that there was no "Don't Stop" or "World Turning." Crowd really seemed to dig "Too Far Gone" tonight, and I'm very happy they opted for that instead of "W.T." I thought all of the new material sounded FANTASTIC tonight.
Hey! I totally know he was talking about after The Dance it was just a bit of an odd comment in my personal opinion. Nothing crazy just a little unnecessary in my opinion and the people I was with. The banter was sweet to a point but again I thought it unnecessary just the way he worded what he did with her songs.
I agree about the setlist!! I loved it. It was crafter wonderfully to compliment the both of them. The new material is amazing on the album and live. They sounded great!
