I can think of a few reasons bands don't change their setlist:

-they're touring in different cities, different fans, most fans will only see the show once so why bother to change it
-stage setup, lights, videos, etc...is carefully planned for the one setlist they have (this was Rush's explanation)
-they only rehearsed the songs on the set list

Bands that DO change their setlist: Bruce Springsteen (different setlist every night, takes fan requests, changes setlist on the fly), Pearl Jam (different setlist every night, takes fan requests), Red Hot Chili Peppers (I think Kiedis writes the setlist on the day of the show)
