There's always a chance that some songs will sound a bit off if they're only played once in awhile. Overall this will be better for their live sound. When was the last time you heard Rush or Megadeth sound off at all musically live? I never have before, so there are positives to doing this.
No. The European tour was the way it was because of Mangini.

They actually said they would be going back to their old format after that. This is a complete change of mind.

And there's no excuse for it either. Look at bands like The Black Crowes and Gov't Mule. Every night their set is completey different, and they never sound unprepared or unprofessional. There's actually no excuse for ANY band with a substantial back catalogue not to change their setlists up.

And are you implying that Megadeth aren't hit-and-miss when they play live? They never change their setlist and they still have nights where they suck.

I'm sure Megadeth has off nights but the six times i've seen them they haven't. It's not like DT picked bad songs for the European tour either. As long as the set represents the bands catalog well, which that setlist did, it shouldn't matter if they change it up or not.

I'll probably only see them once on this tour so them not changing the set doesn't bother me at all.

Also, it's much easier musically for The Black Crowes to switch up every night since their music is blues based rock and not nearly as complicated as what DT plays. So their isn't much of a comparison to be made there.

I'm trying to decide what level of hatred everybody is up to for DT now. I know its not deathcore hate or Metallica right after St.Anger hate. Somewhere in the middle maybe?

I thought the hate was about Mike Portnoy, not the current lineup.

nah I like Dream Theater only somewhat but in the past year it has been really hard not to notice a topic involving them and a past member. At first when the feuds began I just ignored it and didn't care, now every week some stupid shit pops up.

Dream Theater for my most hated band 2011.

Absolutely no hate from me. Just disappointed with the set list thing. But I'll probably won't have another chance to see them again so I guess it doesn't matter.

Guess I'll clarify. Its pretty much all been Portnoy but even someone who loves them like me even found their X Factor, dragging out our auditions for our new drummer even made me cringe. Its been Portnoy primarily but the setlist thing and their drummer thing was on the current band. Not any former member.

I don't consider this a problem. Hell even their recent tour they had one switch up, Metropolis.

As long as the show and songs are good, I see no problem having a static setlist
