I’m hoping for:

Hallo spaceboy
She’s Madonna
Disappointed
In private
Losing my mind
They hardly play their non hit album songs, they won't play these songs in front of non pethead crowds.
however, some of these songs are better known than a lot of psb singles

I'm not sure most of those are known as PSB songs by the casuals. She's Madonna is predominently Robbie Williams, and even then I'm sure most casual fans won't remember that song as a Robbie song either. I would imagine if you ask someone to name a Robbie song released beyond 2005 I'm sure they won't be able to answer. Might say Candy which was number 1 but not She's Madonna from his least popular album.
This is a song about boys and girls. You hear it playing all over the world.

About Oslo 19th June:

This is an outdoor event, and on 19th June the sun doesn't set until 22:43. I hope PSB are aware of this.

Apparently they're going to play the most popular ones, as well as some of the lesser hits. Everything will have been a single. They may segue several together.

Es Devlin will not be working with them on it either.

The recently posted Sequence-Mix shows very good how some songs can work together, that I never thought of as a mash-up. For example Heart and Happiness or Say it to me and West End Girls.

I'm ok with Es not working on this one - amazing as she is, I bet she doesn't come cheap and we've seen her stuff now for several shows ... top of my head:

Inner Sanctum/Super - pods, giant light rings, lasers
Pandemonium - small cubes and cityscape graphics
Cubism - big cubes, neons

... any more?

I don't think she did Electric ... which to be fair was not all that visually
you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

I preferred the Electric show in almost every way - including visually. Some fantastic set pieces. The best bits from the Super tour were the slightly alien musician/dancer costumes - the Boys' costumes were mostly old hat (literally!).

I hope they keep the live band from the Super tour because I think those guys really added something to the boys performance. It really enhanced the live feeling and made it feel more real/human or whatever. The multiple keyboard parts, drums etc made for a great live sound.
Its taken me all of my life to find you

She did the Take That support dates and the original production of Closer to Heaven too.
Woof.

Do you expect an special effort for this live concert?, I mean a more expensive thing. For me, the idea of a GH tour sounds like they were trying to create something bigger to reivindicate its legacy.
