The Rolling Stones set list discussions
Posted by: bv ()
Date: July 29, 2015 17:18

There has been hundreds probably thousands of posts and comments regarding the Rolling Stones set list. They are posted everywhere, in any thread, live reports etc. It is like salt and pepper, you find it everywhere.

Don't we trust the band? Do we expect them to take our advices? Will Keith replace B4 and Happy just because we say so? Will they start playing 30 songs for 3 hours just because we say so? Or will they go on as they have done the past 53 years?

There might be many older setlist threads. At one point it is time to say the subject is debated to death, but I understand people do want to express their opinion, regardless of Mick and Keith care about what some say.

So here you go. Feel free to comment, and now I have a hook for most of the future set list discussions. And if there are some older ones, separate threads on set lists, feel free to report me and I will merge.

Thanks!

SET LIST FIX

Ok...so here I am waiting for the South America Dates / Tour

It is a given fact the Stones play from anywhere to 2 hours to 2 hours and 15 minutes.

WE WANT MORE SONGS.....MR JAGGER


So...do the math MICK...shorter versions of the WAR HORSES.

Miss You needs to be gone forever and is to longs.

You could replace it with 2 songs.

Doom and Gloom GONZO...its tired already

Rambler is ..great but again we could get 2 for 1

Satisfaction...a sorter version and add another song.

The list goes on and you get my point.

Real quick...No Miss You, Doom and Gloom, Rambler dropped, Satisfaction

shorter

You can add 3 songs to the total and play 6 different songs

Ok MICK....you can thank me later

Just a formal remark here. Since Sir Michael is a nobleman he should be addressed Sir not Mister.

miss you will NEVER leave the setlist. opening night voodoo did not have miss you. i loved the setlist, but noticed it wasn't played. they added it to the second show. crowd loved it. it will never go away. i'd like a more '78 version, but the song gives keith and woody a breather.

Let's keep our fingers crossed for more shows, boys and girls, and THEN we'll worry about set lists, OK? Time is no longer on our heroes side.

For quite some years they didn`t play "Sympathy". For sure that seems to have changed. However, fans don`t like lame set lists.

Does this mean set list discussions which are viewed as negative won't be merged into the set list complaints thread? This is getting confusing.

I do agree that it can get tiring hearing everyone's opinion on what the Stones should be playing, but it's pretty clear most hardcore fans would appreciate a bit more diversity. So many great songs that have never seen the light of day since they were recorded.

The problem is that most of the audience aren't like us saddos winking smiley

I'd love to see them shorten or drop some warshorses,but there's a problem :

I've been close enough to see the fear in Mick's eyes when the high rollers get restless during "rarities" such as Rocks Off or Worried about You, never mind deeper cuts.

It seems to work quite well for them.....They ain't about to reinvent the wheel.

I went to all of the shows this summer. Every time they digged out a rare song, i.e. rarer than the ones played every time, people started to wander around, sit down, talk etc. Not everyone but quite a few.

Another problem.. As soon as they move "out of the box" ... they mess up more. The reason why the shows got better and better during the tour is they are well oiled by the time they play show number 12, 13, 14 and so on.

Also, did you ever try to ask an old dog to sit down?

The Stones play large venues, so they have to play their best-known songs to fill a stadium. Audiences expect the big hits and that is what they get from the Stones.

Since the Stones cannot please everyone in the crowd, they try to please the majority. The majority knows the 40-Licks/GRRRR-Sampler and that of course is what they want to hear. The majority does not own all 29 studio-albums, so most of the album-songs are unknown to audiences.

The Stones want the crowd to go wild and this only happens with Honky Tonk Woman, Miss You, Statisfaction, Brown Sugar etc. It would not work with rather obscure songs. Mick mentioned this in several interviews. So this Greatest-Hits-Setlist-concept will never ever change. You can always dream about exotic setlist with lots of never-before-played songs, but these dreams will never come true.

They will not turn the setlist upside down at their age. Plus, The Stones are quite average musicians, they can´t include 150 different songs in their live-repertoire and do a completely different show every night. Only a few can do that. The Stones sure can´t. See what happens, when they do a song that has never been done before, like Silver Train. It wrecks. They need the Greatest-Hits-setlist-routine, they always had rather stiff setlists and at the age of 70+ you cannot expect changes.

Appreciate what the Stones are still able to deliver, if not stay at home and listen to their studio-albums. The actual setlist-concept works well for both the Stones and the audience. It will not be changed.

I have been so fed up with Miss You since 81' LSTNT
I used to wind past it on my VCR in 83' and have done the same since on every DVD or CD release. Plus it has always been my bathroom brake when i see them live.
So please Mick, replace it with something else, anything else..sad smiley

Am I the only one who feels like it really doesn't matter WHAT ORDER THEY PLAY THE SONGS IN?

If they are gonna stick to warhorses, and things the fans know, that's fine, but how about they MIX IT UP A BIT???


They could OPEN up with the dreaded "Miss You," and because of the element of surprise, people would likely say it was a great show, and fall in love with the song again...like the time they opened that club show, with Midnight Rambler -- people's heads nearly exploded!!!

OPEN with Rocks Off, open with "Bitch" -- Heck, open each show with the SURPRISE INTERNET VOTE SONG!!?!?!?!

Move up "Gimme Shelter" as second or third song, Keith sends that riff out into the evening air????

"Sympathy" with the pyro and lighting, third or fourth song, blow people away? See how fresh that sounds?

"You Can't Always Get What You Want," as the big early warhorse song before Keith's 2 song set --- saving "Honky Tonk" for the end????

"Tumbling Dice" as a final encore -- use the choir!!! Why not?

See how it doesn't matter???

THEY ARE ALL GREAT SONGS -- play them ALL and change the ORDER around!



Even better, CLOSE the show with "Miss You" so the fans who don't like it, could head for the exits and beat the traffic!
