Frankly it's not much more repetitive than any other WASP album, which isn't even doing it for any good reason. The typical WASP set is only 13 songs these days, so the fact that that tour's set was only 14 tracks shouldn't leave you all butthurt.

And I agree, Dio does play 3 or 4 tracks off Holy Diver on every tour, but still - you saw tracks like Caught in the Middle and Invisible live, which are great and never get played. Not to mention he played some other really cool stuff (Tarot Woman, One Nigh in the City) at that show. It wasn't exactly the most pedestrian set ever.
Don't get too heartbroken, ravenheart just needs to keep up his cred with the anti-status quo crowd by bitching about bands playing classic albums.
Mortals are mortar and life is the fuse.

They're being incredibly disrespectful.
The success of the album is not irrelevant, its probably the sole reason they're performing it. Besides, I'm sure its still heavy on their minds that its Bon Scotts anniversary this year as well, but since the setlist more than likely be Back In Black then what, one song off Black Ice then the rest will more than likely be Bon songs. And I'm sure they don't want to be living in the past. They've had their current singer for 30 years, I think it'd be more disrespectful to undermine him, and ignore the fact that its the anniversary of the second biggest selling album of all time. I think it'd be more disrespectful to Bon to cash in on HIS death in order to sell tickets.
Yesterday don't mean SHIT.
