Re: why have people stopped posting the setlists?

We must organise ourselves - previous setlist were posted by Forum Members who know the importance of having the setlist etc. Maybe there's a way to find a fan on each show, willing to write it down?

I didn't know it was so important, had I known I would've made lists -- perhaps: shows were so mesmerizing that I could as well forget about making notes, even if promised.....

I can definitively confirm setlist for Saturday, May 17 in Halifax for all but the first two songs, when I was waiting anxiously outside for tickets. But since these are the first two songs from all other setlists to date, I would propose we proceed with this list. I will try to find someone who attended on Thursday, but unless they're as manic as people on this Forum (no disrespect intended as I'm including myself in this group), they probably won't remember!

Perhaps the mods could "stick" setlist posts,so they remain at the top of each city's thread?
One setlist post for each show in that city's thread.
(presuming they have that function here...most boards do)
That way it would be easier for members to know if the setlist from multi-nights in one city have been posted yet.

(but that doesn't solve the problem of obtaining the setlist from each night)..just makes it easier to determine if it is indeed there

Thanks much. I never thought much about set lists either until I read Jim Devlin's work and realized how much I got out of knowing what Leonard was performing and how he changed it up.

All the SETLISTS

Postby tomsakic » Tue May 20, 2008 11:39 pm

In this thread, we will try to post ALL the setlists, for complete tour, and nothing more! (Copying from each town's threads - so please, write the setlists there, and Mods will try to copy the lists here as soon we see them posted. :razz: ). - Tom

If it's any help...
after years of writing the setlists down at Bob Dylan concerts I've always found the best way to go about it is to print out the previous night's setlist. Take it with you and just either tick off the songs if they follow the same order or put a line thru them if they don't and just scribble a short code word or a couple of letters down that you will recognise later.

Looking at the setlists for the current LC concerts there's going to be a minimum of 'paperwork' to do.

Exactly! My point, perhaps not well put, was that the appropriate time to publish set lists is at the end of the tour.

Well, as it seems that LC will NOT change the setlist for some time, we can relax with the existing one(s) :lol: We will heard if there'll be a big change :)

Hello,

no one knows the setlist so far, not even leonard himself I Think,
but I guess it will be about nearly
identical to those of these days.
