i bet those kids who came out for their tour were pissed they didn't get the song.
personally i think they are very smart.
one way or another the band picks what songs they are gonna play and if the crowd dosen't like it, tough shit.
this show wasn't part of the tour, though. what happened or didn't happen on the tour, i.e. seventy times 7, has nothing to do with last night. you're right in that the crowd obviously doesn't get any say in what the band plays, but it was pretty much guaranteed that we were gonna get the song last night.
