That is an awesome BOC set! They are one of the greatest Hard Rock bands the world will ever know.

That is a good set, but it is definitely too short.

Maybe the set may not have enough songs itself, but B.O.C don't play shorter than average sets. Through some sheer power of magic, audience participation, drum solos, jamming and 80s hair metal medleys they can make 11 songs into a 90 minute set. I've seen them three times now (and will see them for the fourth time this summer) and I know that they never played more than 12 songs, but played for a total of 90 minutes every time. For example, they completely stretch out "Then Came the Last Days of May" and add in an absolutely gonzo guitar solo played by their rhythm guitarist (not Eric or Buck, the new guy Richie), and they go nuts. It really is a treat to see these guys play a show, so don't let a low song count deter you from going.

I have seen them eight times over the years and I am looking forward to seeing them again in September. But most of the times that I have seen them they have played 15 songs or more. I know that some festivals, etc. will limit their time but I will be slightly disappointed if they only play 11 songs. Unless one of the 11 songs is their extended version of Astronomy. Then I will be thrilled with the set no matter what.

these guys put on a great show no matter what or however long they play and i've been following them for four decades! even if they don't play ME 262 or harvester of eyes (my faves), they're still amazing!!!
