    A lot of people were shouting for them to play that, but I don't think those people understand how set lists work.

    Also, the tour dates for this are mind boggling... not sure if they're flying, but those are some gnarly drives for back-to-back dates.

    Just came to say they killed it last night in LA. Was hoping they would have changed up 1-2 songs from their Boston set, but overall still satisfied. Good crowd, good vibes, great performance.

    The Dallas venue is selling tickets for 50% off. Comes to a little over $26 with fees.

    I just picked mine up for that. What's funny is it's not actually 50% off...the tickets were $30 before. But yeah, $26 with fees to see The Starting Line when they haven't played here in over a decade is well worth it.

    We just had The Hotelier. I forget the length of the show but they had to be off by 10 as the venue turned into a night club immediately after.

    I enjoyed it. I still wish Bedroom Talk would’ve been played. The mosh pits that kept trying to happen got me closer to the front but I felt bad for everyone falling cause the floor was so slick from spilled drinks. I had never been to the venue before and it’s better than most in deep Ellum at this point.

    I kept getting knocked sideways by the pit as well, so unfortunately I was a drink spill contributor for sure. I agree that it was a pretty fun venue, and it's a lot nicer than the other spots around there (especially the bathrooms).

    The Philly show was amazing me and my 4 year old daughter will absolutely never forget it. Kenny gave her a setlist and spoke to her during the event as we got front row. TSLs fans are amazing too other than some pushing and crowd surfers they were awesome about me having my daughter with me so freaking cool. I love you all and hope to see you all next year!

    Can't say for certain, but pretty sure Kenny said something to the effect of "that song's too dirty, I've cleaned up my act now" in response to bedroom talk chants at the NY show.

    Also, claimed that JLo said they couldn't play "I'm Real" on Jimmy Kimmel, so they won't play that.

    That's interesting. I would love to have gotten to see that live. Also, "The B-List", though to my knowledge they've never played that live.

    let's hope tomorrow won't cave in Moderator

    I'd be happy a) never hearing bedroom talk again or b) having kenny rewrite the lyrics

    I'm the same way. I never particularly cared for the lyrics. It always came across as rape-y to me.

    This is an old statement from Kenny regarding the song:

    "There you have them. So far people have been seriously misunderstanding the meaning. Firstly, this song is absolutely NOT about rape, and if you think it is than you are an imbecile and I am impressed that you can read. The largest misconception is that the song is about a loveless one-night stand. Anyone who really knows me will tell you that I have never had a one-night stand in my life and had remained a virgin for 19 of my years. The song was actually written before I have ever had sex, it was inspired by the idea of knowing I would lose my virginity to a girl who would love me for longer than that night. With a topic like that, I did not want to sugarcoat the lyrics with any kind of sappy nnnonsense. I wanted a lyric that would embody both the physical and passionate sides of love while remaining honest. The first line of the chorus is merely slang and is not meant to be taken literally. I apologize to anyone who found the lyric offensive, but I refuse to apologize for writing it. I realize that we do have a number of younger fans, but the fact is that I am not 15 anymore, I am 20 and am not going to write nursery rhymes.

    I hope that this message is received well by all who read it. I appreciate everyone who listens to our music and would hate to lose any fans over a misunderstanding. Thank you for taking the time to hear me out and for listening to the starting line. "

    It doesn't bother me. I can see how it would be misrepresented, and if they never play it again it doesn't matter because there's a ton of better cuts to play.

    That's pretty hilarious. To be clear (since it might not have been originally), I don't actually think it's about rape or anything non-consensual at all. I'm not sure how anyone would think it's about a one-night stand; it's clearly about a couple. I just don't like the lyrics, and "tear your ass up" just sounds super weird coming from Kenny.
