Setlist Patterns
I have had a look at all the European Setlists and some patterns are present.
Dance Me To The End Of Love always opens the first set
Anthem always closes the first set
Tower Of Song & Suzanne always open the second set
Hallelujah & Take This Waltz always close the second set.
Songs always sung together are:
The Future, Bird On A Wire, Everybody Knows & Who By Fire in the first set;
The Partisan, Democracy, Coming Back To You, Alexandra Leaving & I'm Your Man in the second set.
So Long Marianne opens the Encores, except one time; First We Take Manhattan is second, except twice when it is third encore.
Final song is Save The Last Dance For Me 16 times, I Tried To Leave You 8 times, Closing Time 5 times, Waiting For The Miracle once & First We Take Manhattan once.

Other smaller patterns are present.
Moderators - can I upload my spreadsheet onto the forum? It is only 44Kb, but takes up quite an area.

Alan, thank you very much, this research is excellent!

btw, I prefer viewing documents online, without special software. Maybe this direct link will be useful for someone like me (hope, you don't mind): https://viewer.zoho.com/docs/urlview.do ... europe.xls

Thank you Roman for your alternative platform. I love this kind of statistical summary.
I hope both you and Alan will continue to update your spreadsheets when the North America leg is underway. :D

Oops! :oops:
Just noticed an error re "I Tried To Leave You"
When sung: Last X 8; 2nd last X 19; 4th last X 1
should be: Last X 8; 2nd last X 10; 4th last X 1
to add up to 19 performances.

Oops #2 :oops:
"Going Home"
When sung - should be Set 1, not Set 2.

Roman, can you please adjust the version you posted.
Thanks.

Many thanks to Jarkko for posting the corrected version.

Looks like "Different Sides" and "I Can't Forget" have fallen out of favor for "Waiting For The Miracle".

Hope these two make it back into rotation for the US tour!
