The soundtrack they used to open the show was "Girls Wanna Have Fun", it was pretty funny. Then after dropping the banner and playing the big chord, they jump right into Howl. This show was very interesting because their guitars were tuned to E standard, so all of their songs were in different keys. Then the 59 sound came right after, and I made my way to the mosh pit that they had. I can't really remember the whole line up by heart, but I'll try to recall everything in order. My favorite song of the night was Senor and the Queen because I was not expecting any pre-59 sound songs and it made it seem like they were playing a punk show from back in the day. After a couple more songs, Brian went on a rant about how Mel Gibson is a racist, and called out an audience member for talking over him. Then they played Queen of Lower Chelsea. After songs such as Blue Dahlia, Old Haunts, Old White Lincoln, Too Much Blood, etc., they threw in the classic Blue Jeans and White Tshirts. It was great. After they played Keepsake, they all put their guitars away and walked off stage. Everyone began shouting for one more song, and we were given five more. The encore had songs such as She Loves You, Muholland Drive, and Mae. They also played Here's Looking at you Kid during the encore. This song was definitely one of the highlights of the night because during Alex's guitar solo, one member of the crew propped him up on his shoulders and walked around while Alex played while sitting on his neck. It was unexpected. Then the final song of the night was The Backseats, which is always a great closer. Over all, a great night. I'm having trouble finding videos of the show on youtube, but check them out when they get uploaded. They never cease to amaze me!

Kind of awesome but the way he does it makes him sound a little cocky. Glad he did it though.

They do it to make a connection with their fans in the audience.
They aren't robots on stage that are there to simply play and get off. If you don't want that extra experience from an artist, stay home and listen to the album because you'll never go to a live show and not see the lead singer take a minute to talk about something other then their music.
As for him calling out the people trying to speak over him, good for Brian, they were being rude and he had every right to do and say what he did. Like he said, when people are paying to come see you then you can be the one talking over everyone, or in some cases choosing not, and not making connection with your fans. Then you can play song after song and get off stage. But until then it might be best if you do stay home because like I said, it's an important part of the show.
