Default OWN and Undivided

Why are BJ not playing them live when they won't be hard to Jon's vocals and they're easily better than WGIGO and WWBTF?

Undivided, IMO, is a very hard song to sing.

One Wild Night would be a nice addition though. Was it 2008 the last time it got played?

Undivided is on the short list of rarities that comes out for time to time. I THINK it was done in 2013, OWN was played once or twice on the Lost Highway tour.

After the HAND-tour, wasn't Undivided actually played more frequently than Everyday?

That sounds about right.

It was by far the best live song from the Bounce album, and they played it live during most of the early (longer) promo appearances as well; so the band obviously felt strongly about the song. Kind of a shame it never became a live staple. Jon also said he liked Misunderstood, but that one also got shafted for the Greatest Hits tracklisting.

I really wish Bounce had a stronger first single, or even just a vocal arrangement and hook that lived up to the kickass instrumental. The guitar licks (not the solo, ironically enough) are absolutely ace. It's just that the hook itself is just okay. If there was a great first rock song & first single on the album, Everyday would just be an album track & that album would be 5/12 sweet guitar heavy stuff. The album could have been so much better with just a little more time I feel.

OWN was not an easy song for Jon, even on the Crush-Bounce tour he had trouble singing it, he seemed to choke sometimes.

He didn't do OWN during Bounce tour, but you're correct, that's not an easy song at all. And definitely easier one of the two mentioned by OP. LH tour performances weren't too pretty, so I can't see Jon opting to do it now.

Undivided could be back in Europe just like in 2013.

OWN was last played in 2008, pretty sure it was Brussels

Undivided Milan 2013 and also Munich??

Jon had trouble with OWN as early as 2001 (Melbourne comes to mind, he sounded pretty out of breath), probably even before
