Should hopefully see the set list getting changed up considerably from the last few tours as well, I believe something quite exciting is on the cards!

I hope they will play at De Oosterpoort in Groningen again. Seeing them there was pretty rare.
I doubt it will happen again.

 I think it'll be the US and Canada at this stage Andy, but, I'd expect them to come over to Europe as well.

Hopefully it's a tour where they play new shit from an upcoming album.  Or old shit that we haven't heard in years… rare shit.

so we have gone from hoping for RTS played in full to a support act (sorry special guests !!!) for MB20

sure MB20 are a nice bunch of people to tour with and talented musicians but i have seen them a couple of times this side of the pond supporting other bands and found them a bit dull live , perhaps their sound is more appealing to American audiences

My guess is that they'll just trot out the same old boring setlists they have had these past few years. Hope they'll prove me wrong.

sad bit is I am not even sure the band realise we think the setlist has become predictable

That is probably true, and I don't know if our dream set lists would go down very well with the more random fans that go to concerts either, so from their point of view it's probably better to stick with what they are doing now. Would be great if things became a bit less predictable though. At least get some new Round Here alts.
