I hope this is not stupid, I have followed the band since 1978, and I was at Portland on friday but here is the question. Who makes the set lists and when? Before tour, day of show?
Do they try to set it for the venue or State? Portland was very deep, not for a beginner.
Thanks for any input, enjoy the tour!
That is an excellent question. I have also wondered when
the setlists are created, that morning, the night before, or at the beginning of the tour? I would love to be a fly on the wall of a "setlist meeting" with Jill and the other members of the band. I am sure Bobby has a say as does Phil and JK. It would be pretty cool to get you hands on the setlist before the show. It would be strange to know
what they are going to pay next. You would certainly impress your friends......
I thought the same thing until Shoreline the first night, when we saw the setlist front row. Total downer! So much better knowing as they play/tease it!
