That's generally what venues do. It is a way to keep track of the amount of tickets they are selling, etc. Also, it is a way to validate them as real tickets.

Wrigley GA was the same way.

My list looks about the same minus The Stone (caught it in '02). Tuesday has a lot of potential as far as set lists go. Won't top tonight's on paper but hopefully his voice will be back by then with 2 days off. Just hope that they decide not to write off the next couple of shows until C'Ville and hope that they didn't leave it all in NY.

Definitely. Looking at what they're playing and what Atlanta's set during the summer was, I expect that a lot on that list will be played mixed with some of the BW and "new" tunes.

It would be neat for Spoon to pop out, though I think BS and YNK have a better chance. I'm really just hoping for The Stone, Last Stop, Christmas Song, and BEF. I'll back you up would be a very very nice bonus. I would die to see BOWA and Monkey....those are two of my absolute favorites.
