I know hardcore people who have been going to gigs for years and wouldn't dream of looking on the internet at a fan site such as this.
Very true :!: 8)

Unfortunately, I don't think it would make much difference if they played Greatest Hits or obscure B-Sides - They'd still get the numbers/punters = cash.

Surely the band must get sick of playing the same tracks?

yep, they committed that the first time they played that stuff :roll: then again they've been known to be partial to a bit of commercial suicide now and then :twisted:

I enjoy whatever they play but it would be nice to drop a handful of greatest hits, like always the sun, all day, strange little girl, and replace with a few good album tracks that don't get aired often like English towns,Toulouse,Midnight summer dream.

Would love to see "Meninblack" on the setlist again for just one tour (just for old times sake!!) I don't think it's been sung since December 1981, but would be great to hear this off the wall track just once more. 8)
