Default Re: Set List

I think back to that interview he had with Lars Ulrich for Beats - maybe its time they were a bit more spread out in their gigs - think of Metallica's world tour that lasts like 3 years (the worldwired gigs started in october 2016 and are due to finish in March next year as it stands).

Reason I say this, he can then protect his voice more by not having back to back to back gigs - and would extend longevity by doing that. I know they probably want time off - but in the case of Metallica they have less gigs generally but reach everywhere over time - yet still on legs of the tour they manage to get a few weeks off to a month each time. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WorldWired_Tour for reference)

By doing this they might be able to do more of the back catalogue rather than relying on covers that are easier on the throat.

Just a thought, feel free to dissect it.

Also: his voice is probably still just recovering so is bound to struggle a bit after 2 and a bit hours anyway so would be more noticeable at the moment.

If Chris is going to be singing a song every show anyway, he may as well get his own Foo song next album. That way we can bitch less about covers.
