If they (meaning Chuck and maybe Mick) really do look at set lists they played previously in these cities we might see a few changes.
Not your statement but Chuck, or Mick, stating that is complete bunk. Because it's not the SET LIST, it's... one or two, maybe three, songs, that they...
HAVE they changed them? I've seen plenty of set lists that are duplicate of the previous show etc.
But for someone like, ohhhh, let's see, let me think an hour - got it - CHUCK, to state 'oh the last time we were here we played 2000 Light Years From Home so let's not do that again' is complete BULLSHIT, since it was played at every show in 1989/90.
What wasn't played in every show then? Just from memory... Play With Fire. Little Red Rooster. One Hit. I Just Want To Make Love To You. Almost Hear You Sigh. Terrifying. Now with a look... Dead Flowers. Angie. Probably some others. Only looked at 8 or so shows.
Basically songs 8 and 9 in the set. All the rest were concrete. Thank you music director, for finding what was played between songs 8 and 9 and making a difference
They've been pretty consistent in that kind of different song placement in the set since; VOODOO tour within songs 9-10, BRIDGES song 8... blah blah blah. They've ALWAYS been that way, regardless of what song number the different tunes are, with the exception being the introduction of new songs staying in the set. The last time that happened was STEEL WHEELS/URBAN JUNGLE... to my understanding.
What will they do in 2021? HA HA. At this point, we know some of what to expect. But there may be some changes that are not normal. As in, maybe something from BETWEEN THE BUTTONS or AFTERMATH around song 8 or 9. Perhaps some kind of fast blues chuggy tunes, like Miss Amanda Jones, or something a bit more rolling, like What To Do.
Or! Strictly a HOT ROCKS/(REWIND/JUMP BACK) HONK set list.
It seems obvious they'll play Living In A Ghost Town. It would be criminal if they didn't. Great tune. But... they won't.
What they won't touch? Scarlet. Criss Cross. All The Rage. Or no other extras from reissues. They've proven that by not playing any of the EOMS or SG extras. Which is unfortunate in a way. Just the hits.
MAYBE an extra from the TATTOO YOU deluxe. Or better yet... Slave, Tops, Heaven or No Use In Crying. But Mick could just say, fresh from our recent reissue of TATOOH YEWWWWWW... Waitinnng... On A FRRRRRREND!
