That's a lame excuse if that's what it is. Tom announced he wasn't gonna do the shows almost a week ago. If the guy's a good enough musician to be playing in an arena rock band, he should be able to learn those simple rock songs in a few days, even if they are a bit sloppy. It's just laziness.
I don't think that's the reason as to why all of Toys wasn't played it was just a thought. Juding by this set it seems that they realise that people are coming to hear a greatest hits set not all of Toys so maybe that's why they changed it.

Cutting four songs outta the set is just plain garbage though. It's unfortunate that their sets are so short now. I saw them 3 or 4 times when they toured for Get A Grip and each time the show was at least 2 hours if not a little more. The last time i saw them live was in '97 when they toured for Nine Lives and again they put on a kick ass 2 hour show. If they can't tour and live up to the standard they've set for themselves live then it's deffinately time to retire
