It’s impossible to please everyone with a 20 to 25 song setlist with how diverse the fanbase and music is, plus you can’t force the band to rotate through 50 or 60 different songs in one touring cycle. The logistics alone would be a nightmare. What I’ve been finding is that the more recent setlists try to do too much of everything. Outside of Hybrid Theory and maybe Meteora, not every album gets its due. For example, with the recent set in Argentina, THP was represented with only 1 song, and not even the most popular one from that album (as far as I know). On one hand, you could say that THP gets 1 slot so that it’s proportionate to its sales and popularity. You could say that because Wastelands follows a typical Linkin Park song structure, it’s a safe choice to play live because kind of everyone will be ok with it, so it’s fun. On the other hand, you could say that a lot of the recent set lists have been filled with “yeah ok, this is fine” material, but it lacks the oomph and passion that some of the more hardcore fans would want to see. Has the band ever talked about the setlist selection process? Do any of you have ideas about how and why they’re put together in the way they are? Does the live show have to be for everyone at all times so that they continue to fill bigger venues? I don’t know any of these details, but to me as a fan, it would “make sense” for them to cycle through 2 or 3 setlists with different themes for each. For example, Setlist A is aggressive while Setlist B is melodic. Would this alienate the more casual fan too much? Instead of having 25 songs in rotation though, you’d need more like 35, so it would be extra work for the band for sure, but maybe not too much extra work? Anyway, I’d love to hear your thoughts about this stuff! Cheers.
