This sign might work:


1. Things Have Changed (Bob on piano)
2. It Ain't Me, Babe (Bob on piano)
3. Highway 61 Revisited (Bob on piano)
4. Simple Twist Of Fate (Bob on piano with harp)
5. Duquesne Whistle (Bob on piano)
6. When I Paint My Masterpiece (Bob on piano with harp)
7. Honest With Me (Bob on piano)
8. Tryin' To Get To Heaven (Bob on piano)
9. Make You Feel My Love (Bob on piano with harp)
10. Pay In Blood (Bob on piano)
11. Tangled Up In Blue (Bob on piano)
12. Early Roman Kings (Bob on piano)
13. Desolation Row (Bob on piano)
14. Love Sick (Bob on piano)
15. Don't Think Twice, It's All Rights (Bob on piano with harp)
16. Thunder On The Mountain (Bob on piano)
17. Soon After Midnight (Bob on piano)
18. Long And Wasted Years (Bob on piano)

Finally it becomes clear what happens show after show since years.
People in the first rows request this setlist and Bob isn't strong enough to say No.

You know what I miss are those flip-signs that you could use out your sunroof or car window!

Would they even let you bring a sign in? Bob’s shows have such a strict usher presence that I’m not even sure if they’d allow you to hold up a giant sign in the dark.

back in 2012 when I flew from Germany to the West Coast to hear some of the new songs from Tempest I was so frustrated that he didn't play any of them that I brought a sign with me saying "play some Tempest songs please". Nothing happend, of course.

Back in 1998 I used to flash a small cloth sign between songs, reading "GOTTA SERVE SOMEBODY", which definitely was visible from the stage on May 30th and June 14th, as I was pretty much up front (wishful thinking, I thought, since he had not performed it since 1991). In Belfast a few days later, without me being there, Bob opened his concert with this song and played it 55 times in the following months.

I took that cloth sign back on the road in September 2000, and at my ninth show in a row Bob did perform a great and rocking (you might be Bono, you might be Sting) version of this great song, while I was sitting in the center of the third row on the balcony at the Guildhall in Portsmouth.

Nice thought, but I was not in Singapore yesterday; so only if the new lyrics contain not only "Peter and Paul", or "Father Time and Mother Nature" as reported over on the set list thread, but also "Bono and Sting", we will know for sure that someone must have read my post which was written shortly before the show.

2012 Halloween there were 'Tempest' signs, but he just looked and laughed. He liked the costumes :D

One of my favorite live recording moments is from a concert in 1996 where someone yells out "Silvio" after the 5th song.

I guess you have to recall how widely panned that number was at the time...

I’d say it’s worth a shot.

Back in college, for like two years straight, over about 10 concerts, I'd stand front row with a sign that said, "New Pony".

It did not work.
