This has been discussed in some other threads, but in what ways can the band improve their live shows? I think we can all agree the band is still capable of putting on a great show, but things are missing. What can be done? Retirement is not an answer.

Play more songs from the middle albums and less songs from the last two (or three) albums.

Less from the first would be nice too but that's their bread and butter.

Agreed on both points.

Mix up the closers of encores.

Do more alternate versions of songs.

No call and response bullshit.

Less covers.
Less Ten.
Every album should be represented at each show.
The mega hits should be played a little less - maybe 75% of the time.
I love the set list formula, but it's tired.

Have a sense of why they're playing and what they want to achieve musically which goes beyond simply pleasing the audience.

There's no reason they can't work within their current limitations to make something musically and creatively compelling, they just need to have a desire to do that.

The shows now lack any kind of focus and the stadiums surely don't help - I don't think it's possible to play great music in that environment.

i'm starting to suspect that PJ's involvement with the Cubs and stadium tours is just part of a big marketing plan by Major League Baseball to grow their audience

You know I was actually thinking the return to the basebal stadiums - other than montnana - had a lot to do with Tom petty passing. He played all those places on his last tour.

I’d bet that had literally ZERO to do with it, Strat.
