I don't think setlists have much of an effect on concert sales one way or the other except if someone likes the current setlists they are more likely to be a repeat customer.

Cutting four songs outta the set is just plain garbage though. It's unfortunate that their sets are so short now. I saw them 3 or 4 times when they toured for Get A Grip and each time the show was at least 2 hours if not a little more. The last time i saw them live was in '97 when they toured for Nine Lives and again they put on a kick ass 2 hour show. If they can't tour and live up to the standard they've set for themselves live then it's deffinately time to retire
I also saw them on the Get A Grip tour (my first rock concert ever when I was about 13 years old) and it was amazing. I also saw them twice on the Nine Lives tour and once for Just Push Play and they were still putting on great shows then. I then saw them on the Honkin on Bobo tour and was dissapointed in their performance for the first time and they were even worse on the Motley Crue tour. Like you said, they've set a standard for themselves that they now cannot live up to.

That's true to a certian extent but I think a big reason concert ticket sales are down is becasue bands like this who used to play two hours are now playing 90 mins or less and once word gets around via the internet or word of mouth people just say "well fuck it i'm not paying 90 bucks a ticket to see a band perform for 75 mins"

Plus look at the four songs they took out if you made a top ten list of the most well known songs from the band those four would be in it. Those are songs they need to play at every show and they cut them out? I don't know if it's them being lazy or just getting to old but no matter how you look at it, it's just bush league crap and the band needs to toughen up get out there and do all the songs that are on the set and don't cheat the fans by cutting out four of your most famous songs.

Aerosmith has really started pissing me off with this tour.

Yea that really is kinda crappy that they aren't going to do Toys in full or apparently not doing Rocks either. I really would have liked to have seen both. As much as they have had to cancel I will be greatful if I even get my show in. Love that they put in "Stop Messin' Around" I love the "Honkin' On Bobo" album and that is w/o a doubt my favorite song from that album.

I'm a little disapointed I haven't got a ZZ Top setlist on here yet, even though I doubt it will be different from the other 5 times I've seen them but thats ok anyway!!!
