9/30/08 - Beck played The Roy Wilkins Auditorium in Saint Paul, MN. I was able to attend the show and stand right up front. No stage props except a large LED screen behind the stage
which showed one color at a time. With Beck's new back-up band, this is a sample of what the Modern Guilt Tour has been playing.
The set list was:
Loser / Nausea / Girl / Timebomb / Minus / Soul of a Man / Chemtrails / Mixed Bizness / Nicotine & Gravy / Que Onda Guero / Hell Yes / Clap Hands / Black Tambourine / Devils Haircut / Orphans / Think Iím in Love / Walls / Missing / The Golden Age / Lost Cause / Where Itís At / ??
Notice the question marks, there was a short song that might be a new cover or jam, not sure what it was, UPDATE: Song could be from an upcoming soundtrack.
ENCORE: Gamma Ray / Leopard Skin Pillbox Hat (Dylan) / Profanity Prayers / E Pro
