This thread is the very reason I think bands should keep the same setlist.

There's always been an argument on wether bands should play the same setlist every night or change it. Well, look at this thread: http://www.metalsetlists.com/showthread.php?t=11339 Now, if Metallica kept the same setlist every night, there would probably be less complaining going on. I feel the same. If a band is touring that I'm going to see and they do a song that I really want to hear on the show before mine, I might not get to hear it, but if they do that song and keep the same setlist, then I'm guaranteed to hear it. What do you think?

There's a flipside to that. Some visitors don't check the site very often and if a band they know is changing the set every night, and the last set the see for a night is really boring, then it can only get better from there.

Seconded. Bands should at least have a couple different setlists rehearsed for every tour, and it's better yet if they can pull out a new one each night.

The same complaints happen whether bands change the setlist or not.

Put yourself in this situation:

A band is touring and decides to play your most favorite song by them. They decide to include that song in the setlist at every other show and you discover that your show does NOT include that song. Now, if they were doing the same setlist at every show and doing that song, wouldn't you be much happier?

On one hand, if you're seeing the band, you should be familiar enough with them to like whatever they play.

On the other hand, there are just some songs you would like to see, and knowing one city got it and not you would really suck.

It goes both ways really.

Fair point that when a band changes the setlist sometimes you can be very disppointed.. But when a band has more than one album, they should definitely change the setlist from night to night. If they keep the same setlist, then theres no hope of you hearing your favorite song if it isn't on there, whereas if its changed around, then at the very least you've the excitement that the next song could be your favorite. Keeping the same setlist takes alot of the excitement out of the show. And of course there is goin to be off nights if its changed, but at least it keeps u guessing, better or worse, whether its 'I cant believe they didn't play this song, what a bummer!' or 'I cant believe they played this song, fuckin a!'..
