I think touring with special concepts like CTE or RIP in it's entirety is a good draw but when they are just doing their standard thing it does seem like you will have the opportunity to see them again in a few months if you miss a show near you so it's no big deal. I drove 6 hours for the CtE anniversary tour though and it was well worth it, would definitely not do that if they are just playing a standard set however.
