I was just curious if anyone knows when (approximately) the concert showmanship of calls for audience participation like thishttps://instagram.com/p/BYM4qp8gwZv/began?Or did it evolve as different songs became more popular with fans?
They did play DOTP a lot during tour, but even at Sayreville it seemed like this. I remember when they just came on the stage, after Strength Through Wounding and I could still barely hear Davey because the crowd was singing along so much.
They've done this for a while. I think as far back as 2003/2004, maybe even further back. But I remember people doing that for a long time, but it might just be the places I see the shows. NYC show ALWAYS have that for almost every band I've seen.
Plus... DOTP is just one of those songs that I feel really anyone would like. It's the equivalent to STS Girl's Not Grey, except a '00 version... IMO.
It does lend itself to call backs. They always have so much energy when playing it, too.
