I understand how you feel about that. When I saw them 2 years ago they played 2 hours still. They're set times are kinda screwed up. I checked on their web page and their set time at most of the venues has got them starting at 9:20. If they're playing a place who's curfew is like 11 or 1130 then that would explain the short time. In Europe right before this they were playing 2 hours maybe it's just the set times for this tour that's messing the length up. As much as i love them they also kinda do it to themselves by having so many long songs. It can really paint them into a corner live a lot of the time.
