Looks like this has been their standard set for the last few Euro tour dates. Kind of hoping they change it up a bit for the U.S tour. Ive never seen them so the fact that songs like The Hunter, Burning Times and I Died For You are missing really sucks.

Yep. They don't change their setlist mid tour, so this will be the set for every European show.

The only difference is Pure Evil is supposed to be in there. It was on our setlist, but was cut.

This thread made me bust out Horrow Show....forgot how good this was.

Best time i saw these guys was back in 2001 (I think), and they did the trilogies from both Dark Sage and Something Wicked.

I'm pretty sure my brain just says "that's quite enough r's for one word" and hits the most logical alternative

I wouldn't mind seeing any of those songs, just in a different order, and maybe drop 1-2 new songs.

Its an interesting set list to be sure. Blessed Are You is great to see. But If I Could See You is a terrible song. Democide is the only song on the album that really made me say HELL YEA though Among the Living Dead and the title track are solid. There is also a very oddly flat vocal quality to the new album. Aside from the truly awful slow songs, Stu very rarely uses his upper register. Its very odd.

As for Red Baron, I dunno what you all are smoking that's a great song. One of my favorites. But I'd LOVE to see them do Attila, Stu has the perfect voice for it to.

While Disciples of the Lie and Dark Saga are oddities, both are solid but unremarkable songs.

I've heard that Stu sounds pretty rough on Blessed Are You and Question of Heaven. Not sure if that's the Barlow loyalists saying that or if the material is just a bit to rangy for him.

Nothing from Stormrider or Burnt Offerings, their two best albums. Wtf

It was lacking in those big moments. You know after you have a couple of new or less well-liked songs you get a big song that everyone loves and gets into, whether played often or not? This set has barely any of those. It was cool to hear Dark Saga and Disciples of The Lie, but the first really unifying song was probably Blessed Are You, which is far too late in the set to be achieving that. This was a bit of a problem on the last tour too. Jon deserves credit for pulling out different songs, but he has no idea how to pace a setlist.
Good to know I'm not the only person who thinks this. Granted, I haven't seen them doing this set myself, but I felt like this would be the exact problem. And yeah, setlist pacing/song order on the Dystopia tour was weird as well, despite almost every song in the set being great on that tour.
