Just had an amazing three nights seeing the band at SPAC and at both Forest Hills Stadium concerts! (I love the Forest Hills venue- their first time there was amazing too!)
I noticed that during Dust Bowl Dance (which is always outstanding live), Marcus didn’t sing the word “gun”- did anyone else pick that up? I am curious if it has anything to do with recent events and the political climate in the US surrounding our (much needed IMHO) gun control reform. Not trying to ignite a political debate here, peaceful discussion welcome :)
Thanks! Happy Johannesburg listening to everyone!
I noticed that too. I am guessing it was because of recent events as I have seen them a number of times and he always says the complete lyric. Even in April when I saw them in NC he said it so yeah your thought about why is my guess too.
I noticed that as well. I saw M & S June 13 and June 15 and at both concerts Marcus did not say the word ‘gun’. I had actually mentioned it to my friend. These concerts were immediately after the June 12th Orlando nightclub shooting. I think it was an intentional statement by the band.
Marcus didn’t sing the word gun both nights at Forest Hills June 16 & 17. Jo Cox was murdered in the UK on June 16th, preceded by Orlando on June 12th. I think the omission was intentional given the events that week.
