More bands today need to follow this format. I'm tired of a lot of todays bands coming out and giving 60-75 mins and thinking that's a headline set Well, it's not! GNR still set the standard live just like they used to, and, i'm glad to see no matter who Axl has in GNR they still play sets of this length.

My only complaint is the same for this one as it was for the ones they did a month or two ago, too many solo's and no Civil War or Estranged. Other than that I hope they try a full tour at some point so I can get a chance to see them again.

I'm happy with whatever I can get and the 60-75 is fine but I agree if it is truly is a headlining gig then step it up some There are curfews and stuff yeah but cmon

Regarding set length:

It's important to remember that not all bands choose their own set length. Obviously for a really big name this is NOT the case, they are in control of what they're doing. But if you have a band that tours and plays clubs, they usually can't take too many liberties in their set length, unless they make the club contractually agree to get them on-stage by a certain time in order to perform a longer set. I've been at multiple shows where the headliners, some of which were notable acts (WASP, Dokken) had their sets cut short by venue curfews. Also, on a related note, I don't always WANT a long set. Especially in cases where I see a band I really love and stand through like 4 local supports before they even come on - I'm exhausted already. I'm not saying I want a SHORT set, but I don't have the strength and energy for a 2.5-3 hour show.

Also, I'm not really in favor of bands inflating setlists with solo spots. Frankly, most of them are never interesting, it's just fluff that in most cases (not with this one, due to the length otherwise) could be spent playing other songs.

This isn't even to worst of the solo stuff they've done. Some shows they played last month they were doing like 7 or 8 solo spots I think. I don't mind if a do like 2 mini solos that are only 2 or 3 minutes each (like Kirk Hamment does) but this many solo spots is a bit much. When you consider the day of the live solo's being cool died years ago there really isn't any need for it anymore.

usually i would agree, but when the set is 3 hours long, does it really matter??

The bands that are only playing 60-75 minutes are usually club acts who have 4 or 5 other bands opening for them. They only have the small amount of time that they booked the club for. They have to go by the club's time to play which limits how long they can play.
