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.
It's not understandable at all actually. I'm not asking YOU to play it, I'm asking the guys who wrote and play it for a living to play it. I understand easing Mangini into it with a static set but honestly, I don't understand why a band would want to play the same songs night in, night out. It's gotta get fucking boring. If you've got twenty years worth of albums to work with, why wouldn't you want to mix it up?
