Question for you setlist experts out there (*cough*Bob*cough*) regarding the ADATR tour's encores. The Earl's Court tape makes it seem as if Now I'm Here ended the set proper, with Liar being played as the first encore and In the Lap of the Gods...Revisited as the second to last song in the set. Other aspects of the performance (Brian's comments before Gods Revisited, the "explosion" segueing into NIH, and the fireworks at the end of NIH--the band only used pyro in the encores during the Works tour) make me strongly believe that NIH closed the set., though, says that Gods closed the set for that tour, with NIH being the first encore. I believe it, for one because Sir GH knows quite a bit more about such things than I, and two because the setlists indicate that late in the tour, Liar moved to the encores. My question, then, is this: when Liar moved to the encores, did NIH become the set closer immediately, or did the band really play the 13-15 minute encore that would be NIH and Liar played back-to-back?
