Basically, yes. If a band even has a "hits" set then they have enough material and have been playing for long enough to change that shit up. I don't need to hear Empire, Best I Can, Silent Lucidity, Eyes of A Stranger etc. every time. I've seen those. Now I want to see something else.

This is set is unbalanced. They went a bit too far in changing it, although I still approve. But the same songs tour after tour is boring and for a band with their wealth of material, this is precisely the kind of thing they should be doing now.

Besides which, their best song is 'London', and they never play that.

2/7 Alice Cooper
3/7 Alice Cooper
17/7 Ripper Owens
24/7 Scorpions
6/8 Queensryche
