Song History
This famous segue originated from a jam that was performed after So Much to Say on 10.3.96 with Soul Coughing's M. Doughty. The song had a resemblence to Led Zeppelin's "The Crunge" where Robert Plant says, "Has anyone seen the bridge?" Somehow, the title stuck. Two days later the band decided to play it as a bridge in between So Much To Say and Too Much. The jam was an instant classic. After making a cameo in Before These Crowded Streets, the song went on to become one of the main highlights featuring the band's energy in 1998. In 2000, the song was involved in the suprising So Much to Say > ASTB > Too Much (fake) > Ants Marching sequence. In the summer of 2003, ASTB turned into a segue for So Much To Say to go to a number of songs including Rapunzel, Spoon, and Warehouse; however, it has since reverted to nearly always segueing into Too Much, or at least a Too Much fake.

Around 2007–08, the band used a "freeze time" transition between So Much to Say and Anyone Seen the Bridge, where they would all freeze in place for a few seconds while Carter counted out a number/tempo through the band's IEM system. They would then play that number of "hits" of the last note of So Much to Say before freezing again and repeating a few times, sometimes pausing for quite a while between rounds. The "freeze time" transition got most creative when, on 7.29.08 and 9.6.08, the band played the "hits" to the rhythm of the Tripping Billies intro. [Note: Although this intro comes before Dave sings the final "little baby" from So Much to Say, we consider it part of Anyone Seen the Bridge in order to be consistent with times when the band played it without having played So Much to Say at all.]
