Keep "Waltzinblack" for the opening proceedings.

Then I want Black onstage first, launching into, "The Man they love to Hate".

Dave takes position next and does some fingering.

Burnel and Warne walk on, looking moody,after about 1.5 minutes.

I did like "SBC" as an opener in 1985. I always thought the worst openers during Hugh's time were "Ugly" and "Threatened". :|
Hugh - "We had gangs of skinheads coming along trying to cause problems and stuff"
Rick Wakeman - "How did you deal with it?"
Hugh - "Our bass player used to jump off the stage and beat the shit out of them!"

I think Ugly is a good song to have as the second number in the set

MK1 - Shah/Ice
MK2 - Valley Of The Birds
MK3 - Norfolk Coast
MK4 - Retro Rockets (I think this would work well, I also think A Soldier's Diary would work well as an encore)

There would have to be loads of Brandy consumed if that were ever to happen again.
Maybe a fine Armagnac might assist!
