I mean, they did say they're in their 40's now.

If they were to play, say three or four songs each from (1) Contradictions / None, (2) DEI, (3) Chaosphere, (4) Nothing, (5) obZen and (6) Koloss, that would still be about 18-21 songs or more, which would easily be two hours' worth of material. I couldn't ask for much more than that, even in a wet dream.
They've said on multiple occasions that they can't play I live, as much as everyone would wanna hear it.

For Catch 33, they could do Shed or something.

But unless they don't play Minnesota, I have nothing to complain about. I've seen Meshuggah twice and both sets were completely different sans Bleed and ILID/IDID.
