If I am in the minority please disregard but I have noticed that with two shows now the entire set (or most of it) was posted before 9 PM.
I like to check the forum periodically throughout the show and seeing what hasn't been played yet kind of ruins the night, or at the very least the excitement and element of surprise.

So if others don't mind just post the songs as they happen if you are going to post setlists, not before...

I appreciate those who take the time and start a set list thread so the rest of us can follow along, but It's sort of like knowing the final score of a baseball game before it begins. Just my 2-cents.

That would be great if someone were posting the setlists in real time but I haven't seen anyone do that around here for a few shows now. In fact, I didn't see more than 5 or 6 posts about ANYTHING last night. I agree with you if someone is posting in real time, but if no one is posting, what difference does it make?

I feel the same way. I was trying to do it song by song last night, but then the setlist was posted, the air went out of the balloon. On top of the fact that Gregg wasn't there, it was just different.

Seems like common sense to me, so I find it sad you actually have to tell folks that.

Then again, some might find it sad concert goers are on the 'internet during the show.

It's a sad world I guess.....thank god for music, dancing, family, friends and coffee.

I agree 100%. I go to every show and this year's posting of the entire set list in advance is a major bummer. I can't post a comment during the show for fear I will see the full setlist.Certainly prevents me from posting updates during the concert!

One night I sat near the sound board.....great seats by the way. The set lists are printed out in large capital letters are are easy to see if you are near by. I just had to look, like a car wreck you are passing....

You could "refrain" from looking at them. That too seems like a common sense solution.

There was a time when getting real time updates here happened every night. Not so anymore. I always appreciate the updates but wonder how you enjoy a show if you are posting all night.

Also a whole lot easier to post it all at once if you have it than for someone else to post every time another song starts. They could Put "Warning Spoiler Alert" in the title I guess. I prefer getting it all at once early to waiting an hour after the show or the next day.

I seem to the outllier here, I don't mind at all seeing the setlist. Saw it early last night and felt giddy at all the great songs yet to come.

Same here. If I am at home, it doesn't matter to me if I get the info in advance. Maybe setlist thread titles can contain either "real time" or "spoiler".

At the show it is different. I accidentally glanced at the soundboard setlist the other night but fortunately I only saw the first song which was already in progress. I didn't even look in that area the rest of the night to avoid any spoiler.

It kinda reminded me of the Stones/Beacon DVD Shine a Light. Martin Scorsese keeps bugging the band and asking for the setlist. They finally give him the setlist about 2 seconds before the band breaks into Jumpin' Jack Flash.

Seriously? Until this year setlists were always put up in real time, one song at a time. It has never been an issue before.
Its not like I am on the internet for the entire show. For example I had no clue who Rob Barraco was so i wanted to see if somebody posted who it was. Next thing you know the entire setlist is already posted. Thats a 30 second check in between songs.
Also, not sure if you have been to the Beacon but intermission's are looooooong, so yes I will go on the forum to see whats up instead of watching the screen of the ABB trying to hawk their merchandise for 45 minutes.
Its also not like people at home need to know the entire set at 9:00 PM either, not sure what the huge rush is either way.
Its not asking a lot, its actually just requesting to stop ruining the night for some people... in my mind that is very little to ask for.

I agree. Routinely look for the setlist to plan my beer runs!! I know not to look if I don't want to see it. Last night was particularly helpful although it appears they dropped "Old Friends" from the original post.

Can't wait for tonight. I have no doubt that the band is working up a special show so that people do not feel disappointed, that's what they are like. No doubt Gregg will be back next week and weekend, strong of voice, so happy he's resting now. Also happy that I'll be close to the stage tonight to experience what I know will be some top-notch artists at work.

Got a question for all of you WHY IS ANYBODY ON THE INTERNET DURING A BROS SHOW.
Think somebody else has already said that but i echo that statement. When im at a show my
phone is off. My wife and kids know that and have since 89. For me it's almost like going to church

Maybe if the person who posts the set list indicates that it's the whole set or whole show in the subject line, those who don't want to see it don't have to look. Those of us who like to see it all at once can read it. Simple answer and everyone is happy.

I have never posted from, or looked at the website during any show. I sure do appreciate the people that do when I am not there. If I am near the soundboard next weekend I am sure I will look again........just one of those things.

I promise not to post

Basically, some like it each way. So, can we have two threads, one for those who like to see the full set list (call it full set list) and one for those who want to know the individual songs. Kind of like opening the egg at the middle. Question is, will the people who want to only see individual songs be able to keep from peeking.

I prefer the set list in real time. If I get it all at once I stop checking the forum until later in the night.

That is just a preference. This is an open forum. Folks can post what they want. I'll read what I want.
