.. from time to time, as they say they have rehearsed a few more songs than actually played...


well let's hope for Breakthru, Headlong, Sheer Heart Attack, Keep yourself Alive, Innuendo, Heaven for Everyone!

They don't play concerts for bootleggers bub. They play them for the people who actually show up, so unless you've spent thousands to follow them to every gig you haven't got a leg to stand on.

While I would like to see (or hear about, i suppose) a changing set list, I'm wondering why there are such high expectations for this to happen.

It has happened very little in the past.
Is it just because this idea was hinted at by Brian?

...just curious.

Not hinted by Brian, but by Roger- and he said that straightforward in Q/MOJO interview

It is a shame they aren't trying to shake the setlist up a bit. It would be very cool if they did. But as has been stated here before, that was never they're style. Hell, it wasn't anyones style for the most part. 95% of bands from the psat & present jsut have a standard set that they don't really deveate from at all. Floyd, The Who, Stones, Aerosmith, Buffett, and the mighty Led Zep to name a few, hardly every changed their set from night to night. Maybe a song here or there but nothing more. I don't like it, but thats how it is. There's only one band who chnaged up nightly. Like em or hate em ya gotta respect them for it; The Grateful Dead never played the same set twice. You could follow them for a month & never hear the same set. Between all their original songs, & all the covers they played it was always fresh. Love or hate them you gotta give them credit.

DREAM THEATER on their last tour played 3 hour long gigs. i saw them on the second one, in Hammersmith, knowing the setlist from previus night (if I remember well- Manchester)- they changed HALF of it. And on the next one they also changed an hour of material, most of it unplayed during first two concerts. At the end of the tour it apeared they had about 6 hours worth REHEARSED of their own material... on top of that in Japan they played entire "number Of The Beast" (another hour) nad on every single gig they played a different cover (in Hammersmith it was... Death On Two Legs!!!) All in all it was about 8 hours of rehearsed music. I was hoping for at least HALF of it...
