Re: Is it effectively "All Over Now"--what a horrid set list in LV! What a BORING show!

Funny, when I talk about what crap the set list is / was / probably will be everybody jumps on me as if I was Allen Klein..... Good for you Lynn1, and StonesTod sarcasim has me laughing out loud. The bottom line is we expect the Stones to be bold, take chances, try new things and instead they're acting like The Beach Boys. The last tour was kinda know for FINALLY dusting off CYHMK, such an overlooked classic.The '94 tour had everybody excited about "Monkey Man" - another one that should have popped up years earlier. I figure that they should do 3 or 4 rare ones per show for the die hard fans that go way back. On this tour surely they could have done "Sway", "As Tears Go By" and either(pick 2) "Time Waits For No One", "Loving Cup", "Let It Loose", or "She Was Hot" every night to please us long termers. Another 4 could be new ones off of ABB and the rest...whatever. That's 8 songs out of 20? Surely making the other 12 the war horses/greatest hits is enough to please the Stones - Lite fans. This just seems like the "Take the Money and Run" Tour. Not Even Rio had any surprises - not even one extra song thrown in. Maybe Charlie's Cancer has freaked them out or something...what ever it is it's a shame.
