Default Current setlists

Dunno if this should be in Tour Talk or not,

As it's more like the set in general than a specific show I thought this would be ok -

as I've whined about the setlists in the past I'm really happy to say that the current ones have been amazing. I thought already that my days of catching every live show I can are over but if they keep these kinda sets in the future I'll definitely be going to the shows whenever I can in the future aswell!

Setlists shouldn't define a show. They do with his band however.

There was a time when they would just play all their "hits" / singles and fill time with the odd extra. Now they don't even do that and have taken to playing 3 or 4 covers in place of covering their back catalog.

I just looked at three shows. And each one skipped an entire album and 2 albums only had 1 song played. On top of that, it's the usual suspects.

Disappointing.

I think with nine albums, an EP, dozens of b-sides and a plethora of fan-favorite covers and rarities, it has to be nearly impossible to craft a set list. That said, you’re always going to have that one done you want to hear that doesn’t make the cut. Not to mention, the current tour is always going to be heavy with the current album they’re out in support of.

When you consider they play 25-30 songs a night, it’s tough to ask for more. At least they change up the sets. I’ve been a fan of some banda over they years that fall into that rut of playing the same show time after time.

Not singling you out here... but outside of the covers thing maybe, this is the exact same thing that's posted on every band's message board. In the end, unless we're going to more than one show (or trying to justify it), or watching every single one via an Internet link, any thoughts on it or more or less going to come down to whether you're a "huge" fan of the said act or not.

Here's a few threads for other bands... replace a "Basket Case" with "Everlong" and it's basically the same thing, haha.

There's 9 albums and probably 100 or more Foo Fighters tunes of which everyone has favorites, but they sound incredible live and all their songs are pretty rad.
So there's that going for us. 😊

I'm just glad they dropped the Chevy Metal - part out of the set. I think the whole deal was the worst idea ever.

I think it applies to most online discussion forums anyway. Sometimes I'll venture onto, say, a Star Wars forum to see what's going on... and it's the same type of comments except it's about the movies.

When was the last time they played something off Sonic Highways ? I always thought Something from Nothing and Congregation sounded great live.

The two you mention are the only ones they've played this tour, every few shows.

It boggles the mind why, except for that one obligatory performance, they totally skipped over 'The Feast and the Famine'.

I legit suspect Dave can’t remember all the words Though I suppose that hasn’t stopped him before.

They played it twice, once in DC at Black Cat (happy anniversary!) and at NOLA House of Blues. Too bad, because I think it was one of the keepers off of that record and it worked live both times.

We got Enough Space in Richmond and then later on Wheels

I'm also enjoying the lack of covers. I went to 3 shows this tour and only got one cover, Bitch.

I am shocked and appalled to see PJ in your list. They always set the bar for me live. But it is somewhat fair and I've seen it with them too. Two big shows in one major city and they play it safe.

The thing that bugs me with foo and bands similar. You're touring every 2-3 years in the same places and you'd have to know it's majority same crowd. And it's basically four old singles dropped for four new singles.
Granted they do each tour try bring something new.
The lengthy jams, Acoustic stage, Covers. But the rest stays the same.
I've talked to their crew a lot about it over the years and I know it'll never change. They're a well oiled machine that puts on an amazing performance. And that's the difference, it's more of a stage show than a rock show.

But even the Stones throw it to their fans to pick out some rarities each night.
A true real fucking live band can pull out 80% of their catalogue at the drop of a hat.
