Hip Tour Stat-Pack 2009 v.1

Pin It Now!

For fun, shits and giggles, etc. I have put together some tour stats. I will update maybe every 10 shows or so. I wanted to wait to do the first one once a good chunk of data had been compiled.

When we look at the "big picture" I am going to break everything down into two sections. One will consist of only We Are the Same material and the other will include everything else. Obviously as the touring album it is going to pull said number of slots at each show regardless.

v.1 Stats are from 04/24/2009 - 05/19/2009 (16 shows)

We Are the Same

Total Plays:

1. The Last Recluse (16) - Never missed. 8 first sets, 7 second sets, 1 encore
T2. The Depression Suite (15) - Only show not played was 4/29/2009. All appearances have been in the first set except for 5/7/2009 where it appeared mid-second set.
T2. Struggle (15) - After missing the Danforth show it has been a constant part of the rotation. 8 first sets, 6 second sets, 1 encore.
T4. Morning Moon (14) - 11/14 have come in the first set
T4. Love Is A First (14) - see Morning Moon ^^^
6. Coffee Girl (12) - 4 first sets, 8 second sets.
T7. Honey, Please (8) - Played in the first 6/8 shows to start the tour but has cooled off since appearing in only 2 of the last 8 shows. 6 of the 8 have been in the first set.
T7. Frozen In My Tracks (8) - Didn't show up in the setlist until 4/29/2009 making Frozen the last song to be played live on this tour from WATS. 3/8 have been encores.
T9. The Exact Feeling (6) - Has never appeared in the first set. 1 encore.
T9. Speed River (6) - 2 first sets, 4 second sets.
11. Queen of the Furrows (5) - Started slow showing up in the first 2 of 9 shows but has since appeared in 3 of the last 7. 4/5 have been in the second set.
12. Country Day (4) - Disappeared for 9 shows 4/29 - 5/15. I don't get it.

0.00% Should I bother?????????

Kinda neat looking at these numbers. If you're a Day For Night fan for example, it's nice to see that they have played almost 60% of the album contents. On the other hand the numbers show that on average you may see 2 of these songs per show, but it is also quite possible that you may get none.

IVL makes up less than 3% of the live material put forward this tour, yet I saw 3/4 that they have done from this album during a segment of the Massey run.

I'm interested to see what songs will be on the "one time played list" by the end of the tour. Always nice to catch one of those, especially if they hold.

Notable absences this tour: Fire in the Hole, Summer's Killing Us, Vaccination Scar, Heaven, Silver Jet, Use It Up, 38 Years Old, Looking For A Place to Happen, and Cordelia.

I'll keep adding to the info, so check in regularly. Maybe every 10 to 15 shows. Feedback is always appreciated. Just hit the "Post Comment" button.
