Hmm, that's a good point.

It just doesn't make sense for him to do a whole tour from July through to October, following the June release of a new album, with no band personnel changes, and not play the new songs.

He usually changes up the older songs in the middle each year too. Keep your fingers crossed that he keeps the 'Steven' > 'Dead Babies' > 'Ballad of Dwight Frye' bit. That's awesome. He used to do songs like 'Killer', 'Black Widow' and 'Devil's Food' in that segment too. Either way, the combo of 'Steven' and '...Dwight Frye' basically sums up the theatrical nature of his best music.

And that segment always shows off how tight his band are as well. I don't know how they do it, but throughout that whole thing the music becomes really involving, if you see what I mean.

My favourite setlist of his that I've seen is still the 2002 Descent Into Dragontown Tour set.
