I think it would be good to put WDIAROM up front in the set,to leave people guessing about the encore. I saw the manics do this once with 'Design For Life' and it made the set so much better.

So - here's my suggestion (in this order):

Mother
Moving
WDIAROM
Selfish Jean
Writing To Reach You
Another Guy
Sing
Side
Re-Offender
Reminder
Driftwood
Where You Stand
On My Wall
Closer
Flowers In The Window

Encore:

All I Want To Do is Rock
Know Nothing
Happy
Turn

You're right, it would be good to change up the place of WDIAROM, but at the same time it would be unsettling for me :P
I love to finish a Travis gig jumping and screaming and laughing, it's like a last sprint... So I wouldn't change that.
And I'd put Boxes in the encore and Warning Sign instead of Moving :P)

Am sticking to my guns re: not including Warning Sign! I think Boxes is a far better song but not sure how it would come across live

As long as they play Mother, Moving, Where You Stand, Warning Sign and A Different Room. Best songs on the new album! It would be nice if Dougie can sing one of his many great b sides too. A couple of surprise gems, such as a couple of songs on 12 Memories they maybe haven't performed since that time. They have so many songs to choose from now.

I would really like to hear them playing Big Chair, Song To Self, Driftwood, 20 and Walking Down The Hill/Some Sad Song...what an experience it would be...and from the new album - Moving, Mother, Boxes, Warning Sign, Reminder and Different Room. But there are so many of their songs that i would like to hear too (Side, Sing, Cage, Flowers in The Windows, Closer, My Eyes...) I am going to travel all the way to Bristol from Slovakia just because of the show, so I hope they won´t disappoint me with playlist :-)

Well summed up.
It's kinda unexpected seeing so many people wanting to hear Boxes, which is a lovely track.
