I don't think that "Can you forgive her?" and "It's alright" have been overplayed live really, but point taken. I hope that some of the slower/moodier "Greatest Hits" feature too: Jealousy and Rent for example. The Super Tour was too "one-paced" for me. I fear that the GH Tour will be the same.

The only really interesting song live in the list is it's alright and maybe can you forgive her.

I would love to see them changing the moods of some songs. It would be interesting to see them performing the Haçienda version of Rent and the alternative version of Domino Dancing.

Apart from the shitty set list, there's no way I'd pay 80 to 100 quid for a couple of minutes of music! Those days are over.

Maybe because the new album is going to be one of those even some PSB fans don't buy because of the mood of it (ex: Elysium). I suspect it's not an album to play live with strong single material (we'll have to wait for that).

But a live concert is just different. It's not only for hardcore fans. PSB have a strong amount of people who are not going to buy their records but they go to the concerts. The legacy here is the most important thing.

I think a low key album with a greatest hits tour is a good combination.

The probability that It’s a sin won’t be played is 0.

It is getting like that here too Alig. We are not going (too expensive and too stressy getting there). The money were we going to use bought us a much needed garden fence. :up: Glad we are not going now with that set list!

It’s not a set-list. It’s just a promo video to sell tickets that showcases some of their biggest hits. It’s not a preview. I don’t think you can infer the setlist, mood, pace or style of the show from this.

I’m sure the setlist will be lovely, don’t forget this tour is months away yet so they’ll still be doing lots of work on it.
Heaven is possible,
AFTER ALL.
