There were no tour breakouts this show but, Love Is A First was played in the 2nd for the first time. I only mention this because of what I wrote just last post regarding its placement in first sets only.

Whether intentional or not, I like the Toronto theme sprinkled throughout the 2nd set and encore. Was it a nod to the 1st place Blue Jays right in the Red Sox backyard? Frustration of the Bruin's performance versus Carolina by long time fan Gord Downie? A nod toward Massey Hall? Coincidence? Regardless Toronto #4, Queen of the Furrows, Bobcaygeon and Fifty Mission Cap.

After only being played in one of the first three shows, NOIS is on a current four show run and 6 for the last 7. It appears the song may be around all the time for another while yet, like it or not. Another notable run is Courage: 4 of the last 5 including one acoustic version.

Frozen In My Tracks was actually the last of the new songs to be performed live on this tour with its breakout coming in Montreal already five shows into the tour. However since that point the song is on a 5 of 6 run including the last 3 in a row. Two of these have also been in the encore.
