On the plus side you know what to expect, i remember going to see them early on and not knowing a couple of songs (although they were good to watch, i remember counting down the minutes lol)
Try learning 6 HOURS of Dream Theater Prog Metal for one tour on any instrument.
That's why they are going back to a static catalog. How much hate does Rush get for doing static setlists? They are playing very hard music for 3 hours. It's very understandable.
