Have to admit I' m not on Ed playing solo stuff. I can understand Overcome in Dutch land because it was a huge success there. We can't say the same a out Heaven in the US, for a rock crowd.

They could totally throw Heropsychodreamer out there, or The dam at Otter Creek, or Sparkle, or TBD, or Freaks or whatever, but Heaven is a confusing choice for this kind of show.

The shows sound good so far, and like Voodoo said, why not throwing a new song now? It's time. It could give them momentum if it's good. They miss an opportunity the same as when they toured Summerland in 2013 with an album that came out more than a year after that tour.

Wish that Gracey recovers fast...sad injury.

You just made me wonder what they're going to play for the GnR crowds in August?! Heaven would go from confusing to a mistake. August has quite a few big opportunities for setlist surprises.-- Lollapalooza, Allentown, and the GnR shows. If they don't bust out Freaks, Heropsychodreamer, TDAOC, or a kick ass new song at one of these, I'm going to go from being minorly annoyed to PISSED.

Heaven is a great Live song, and a pretty big hit for the band. I'm glad it is back in the setlist.

Shinedown has plenty of Hot A/C songs, Heaven fits fine with them.


Then why Ed solo?

Like I said, it wasn't a completely Ed solo. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-kIe0nGzCw8 See? eyebrow.gif We only have to get worried again when The River makes it back to the current setlist. Actually, I think the band doesn't look back in anger on songs like Heaven. But sure as hell they could have chosen other songs!
The thing I still find dissapointing is that, when they go for an accoustic song, it's never with the whole band. That seems ages ago! (Apart from the TGF and CS era's)

Heaven is a great Live song,


uggg, no. It isn't a great Live song. It may be popular, and I'm not saying its a bad song, but it isn't a good Live song, and it shouldn't be included in such a short set. It's a good Ed song. Heck it's a good pop song.

My thoughts exactly.

They may get along well now, but sadly I don't imagine any good new material coming out of the group now. I think that musically we are going to see a continuation of where they left off with Ed, which is disappointing.

Whether Heaven is a good song or not, I think Ed up there solo sends the wrong message. CCP is pretending Chris never existed. There should be a similar distancing from Ed's solo career during the reunion period. But Ed up there with an acoustic guitar is basically what he did during the break, and to be reminded of the break/Ed's solo career is not the right message to send.

Is there a good reason why Ed would perform Heaven solo instead of the full band?

Hopefully, the reason is that CC&P did not want to play it because it sucks.

True, but to let him go and play it if that's the case is not better for CCP.

I'm just happy my favorite band is still out there playing music. Hopefully Live becomes a staple summer concert tour band.
