I'm not saying every band should be Dream Theater and basically change their set list 80% every night, but more bands doing night-to-night rotations would really keep things interesting.
Right on! I appreciate the set list post, but was rather bored reading it (no disrespect to ravenheart). I couldn't imagine playing the same set every night for such a long tour. AC/DC played St. Paul twice, about a couple of months apart, and obviously it was the same both nights.

Even Maiden mixed up their final leg.

I love the excitement of those possible surprises. With bands like Megadeth and Overkill, you are guaranteed your classics, but usually have a nice surprise waiting for you that your buddies in other states didn't get a few nights earlier.

Great reply.
