I wouldn't expect the band to reach too deeply on SIT or Seventh Son, although Infinite Dreams live would be a VERY GOOD thing in my book.
All of us need a longer set list.
I'll give you Moonchild. That was a big surprise. However, just playing the others to me isn't thinking outside the box. I would've bet $100 that they played each one of those tracks simply because of the theme of the tour. If they didn't play Rime there would've been riots in the streets. Thus, just playing those songs doesn't really make them earn any points for me. Like I said, I'm not really bitching, it was a fucking incredible show.
Honestly, the set list isn't really lacking length. My gig last a full 2 hours.
