Whole lighting sequences are now synched to a single button. So you can cue most of the effect for Song A to button 1, Song B to button 2 etc, if you want to rearranged your set list, you just push the buttons in a different order, or resequence during soundcheck. There is no need to do same set list night after night. Nor is there a need to say the same shit night after night, or bring up children on stage night after night... unless you're not a creative person who can't improvise at all.

That’s even worse than one setlist, only having few jokes, with maybe a few particular jokes for that country. For example in Germany he always talks about the bread and asks for bread from the crowd.

U2 do long tours when they tour - and I've seen them at multiple stops on some tours and they've been different shows. Yes, some of it is the same - they play some of the same songs (but not in the same order) and they have screen projections or things that go with the song - yes, of course - we know that and expect that. But Bono will talk about different things, interact differently with the crowd because they are different people and the atmosphere is always slightly different.

All the bands you mentioned tour a lot less than Mars. I personally think maybe they could tour less and do bigger shows but that wouldn't be fair to those countries who rarely have shows. Compare them with Linkin Park for example. Linkin Park doesn't even do worldwide tours anymore, they have huge setlists but always the same ones. I saw them live with a 2 years gap difference, promoting different cds and it was equal. And they have a very poor interaction and also always the same.

Maybe they tour less, but they still come in all places…

Every band on the planet has a specific time to call fans on stage when they do that. I went to plenty of shows from different bands and noticed it every time, not just with mars. They have to play for a specific amount of time, they need to have the sound and light technicians completely synchronized with them, they have scheduled times to make breaks so it's impossible to have a spontaneous show and whoever expect that is very naive. That applies to every band.

There are certainly bands who are spontaneous and have a different setlist every night. It’s not impossible to change things up a little bit.

To that anon, of course most people would choose to hang out with their gf/bf rather than strangers but if you sell something and people pay very good money for it you owe them that much. Fans pay a lot of money to see a band and last time I checked there were three members in this band. So fans are only getting 2/3 of what they paid for and that is morally and professionally wrong. He can hang out with his gf later. If someone pays you to work you're expected to do what you're being paid for. 1
