Steely Dan Europe 2007: New trombonist + "new" song

- setlist discussion coming up -

No news about why, but Mark Nightingale has replaced Jim Pugh on trombone. A bit more on Mark can be found here. And here's another page about Mark that's part of the Trombone page of the world with short bios and more on over 4000 trombonists!!! Amazing...

Looking back at the shows played so far the setlist features songs from all nine Steely Dan albums with Aja and The Royal Scam popping up more often then the rest.
If we've kept or setlists correct Liverpool was the first time this tour that Home At Last from Aja was performed. And it stayed on the setlist for London as well.

Wonder what other "new" songs might pop up during the remaining dates?

Liverpool & London had identical or almost identical setlists. Reports differ on Bad Sneakers. UPDATE July 10: According to a comment by Lars-Erik it was indeed played in London.

Time Out Of Mind
Bad Sneakers (Was it played or not in London?)
Two Against Nature
Hey Nineteen
Haitian Divorce
Dirty Work
Home At Last
Green Earrings
Chain Lightning
Kid Charlemagne
My Old School

They definitely played Bad Sneakers in London. It was a joy to hear.

Thanks for the positive answer! One of my all-timne favourite Steely songs.
