I would love to hear more The Circle songs since WAN has only some good ones, I BASICALLY only like Teardrop/We Don't Run from BB and I don't like Knockout/This House that much
again JBJ likes to sing Work for the working man >_< lol
I agree that he HAS to play x amount of hits during a show, they all have to do that for the audience that comes to hear the hits. For example, I went to the Scorpions last Friday and I would've been terribly disappointed if they hadn't done Wind of Change, Still Loving You, Rock You Like A Hurricane, Big City Nights etc.
But my biggest gripe is: If he thinks so highly of their last few albums, why do we get the same songs again and again? LH, The Circle, WAN, BB and THINFS all have decent to very good tracks. Yet we always get Lost Highway, We Got It Going On, I Love This Town, Born To Follow, Working Man, Because We Can etc.
There are tons of album cuts there that would be great for diehards to listen to and the general audience wouldn't care because they don't know the songs either way in most cases.
Play songs like Any Other Day, Love's The Only Rule, I'm With You, I'm Your Man etc. from time to time and us diehards would probably be a lot more happy.

Jon probably knows that 90% of the fans that go to see them only know the 1st single from the newer albums. That's why he plays We Weren't Born To Follow, Lost Higway, Because We Can etc.. at every show. The die hards are a very little part of the crowd compared to the casual so that's why nowadays Jon plays a laughable amount of rarities for them. The other reason is that he knows his voice sucks and can't handle singing more rarities.

Wow, when I think about that, it's really depressing.

Lost Highway wasn't the first single from that album...

I know. I just didn't say it the right way. The casuals don't only know the first single, most of them only know the songs that got a music video.

When JBJ played I want you (acoustic) in Dublin 2016, he said "I'll remember this one for the next time." Still waiting for that next time... lol (anyway, there are better songs that I Want You in my opinion, but of course he doesn’t play them >_<)
