Re:Butch ? about set lists
7 Hours, 4 Minutes ago
The sad fact is while we are on our summer tour we have found that many in the audience have a very limited attention span when it comes to new material. We tend to play a set with many more of the "classic hits" than we can get away with in March in New York. This makes Orpheo, Egypt and most of the songs from Hittin the Note rare plays. We do what we can.

It was colder than a well diggers butt that night. You might have had on a pair of ear muffs.

While we are on the Moogis subject, it would be good to go on over and show some support. We know it's hibernation season at the moment but Butch does read and write there just about daily. There is some real progress with the Moogis 2.0 and Butch hopes to have some important announcements very soon. Boehlert, has been so wonderful keeping the vibe alive and well over there and has started a goup about the Moogis 2.0 which I think you all should join and support! Show the peachy vibes and love ya'll!

No 1,

Great Woods has had 30 performances of the ABB since 1989, and you're complaining about the closers? Perhaps you might want to count your blessing in the fact that the ABB has played that venue as often as they do.

I don't know, Big V - I think MOST classic rock bands have an audience that wants HITS / known songs. Sad but true - musically conservative.

Maybe they should start the show with whipping post instead. Now that would be different.

Personally, I don't mind hearing that song at any time. Still love it.

I did go to a show where they opened with Whipping Post but I don't recall which show or where... so many shows!

Hey Eric, I'm sorry you feel this way. I am just always happy to see them play somewhere local.

We do what we can? Doesn't sound like it. Sounds like the band, with the exception of the Beacon run, has resolved to keep it in a lowest common denominator rut, admittedly a very good rut, but a rut nonetheless. I like hearing the "hits" as well as anybody, but there's some great stuff in the catalog that would be wonderful to hear. Maybe, rather than a short attention span, the audience is simply bored with hearing just "the hits". I think Butch is wrong. I think the fan base would love to hear some "deep cuts". We've had no new album in years and likely will not see another one. They've allowed practically all of their DVD catalog to go out of print. We haven't seen an archive release in years. Seems to me if anyone has a short attention span, it's the band. They've been at it for forty years, so I don't begrudge them taking it easy. Just don't put the blame on the fans.

actually, just for what it's worth, i think the co-bill with WSP part of the tour is a great time to break out Egypt or Orfeo, and some other deeper catalogue stuff as well. i REALLY believe that one should take advantage of a different audience demographic when one has the chance. i know LOTS of Spreadheads who love the ABB as well, they're perfectly willing -- and would be excited -- to go as far out as IASW. the Charlotte shows are going to be packed with fans of both bands - surprise and move us!

incidentally, for consistency's sake, let me just add that two of the most wonderful ABB shows i've ever seen were Greatest Hits type shows - Charlotte '04 - our boys just blew Skynyrd right off the stage, and by two songs in, the Skynyrd fans in our area were in awe and the 40th anniversary show this past March. but this crowd, over two nights, is going to be a LOT different. Charlotte's a hotbed of Panic fans. don't underestimate them or us. let's show 'em what we've got! you can do it! rah rah!

I agree . I don't think the ABB are drawing in "new" people who listen to classic rock radio. It's the long timers and the new young fans that come from the jam band scene. So why not get some deep cuts?. I remember seeing the brothers I think in 1997 and was very suprised by that show. Up until that point the setlist was pretty much the same except for a few songs here and there(Dickey era). But that show I heard about 4 songs that I have nevere heard live and it is still one of my favorite shows.

I think the setlist has become a rotation of just a select group of songs from their catalog.
Yes they rotate and do a damn fine job of it, but it's just the same songs that they keep mixing up. ANd yes I could see how someone could get bored. The playing is awesome as always, but nothing new or different to freshen it up.
