Light The Fuse

The band traditionally kicks off each world tour with a surprise appearance in a suitably small space. For the 2005 tour, that space was Toronto's Phoenix club, where several hundred ecstatic fans got to see the group test out new songs from A Bigger Bang, experiment with an alternative arrangement of "19th Nervous Breakdown," and have some fun with covers ranging from Otis Redding's "Mr. Pitiful" to Bob Marley's "Get Up Stand Up".
