However I keep going back for more as there are still some magical moments that make it all worthwhile. Good Things & Rain From Heaven in Belgium, Kiss The Carpet in Leeds.
I'd like nothing more to hear Heartland, Gimme Shelter, Walk Away but I know its not going to happen so i'm not disappointed.
In 2011 the Sisters are what they are. You can either take it or leave it.
But why donÂ´t they play Gimme Shelter, for instance, any longer? If they can dig out Good Things I am sure that Gimme Shelter would be suited as well, and the fans would love it, it could be a highlight.
But of course they wonÂ´t. And that is one of the things that are so wrong with the Sisters of today. Not the sound or performance per se, it is a matter of taste. It is the ignorance and the fact that every tour is a repetition of the last, with some, very very very very few changes.
When I saw them 2002 they played:
Crash And Burn
First And Last
when I saw them 2003 it was identical, they began with Crash and Burn, changed Ribbons for When You DonÂ´t See Me, Train/Det Boul for Jeep/Det Boul. From then on it was the same 16 songs in the same order... Could be the same tour.
when I saw them 2005, 18 of the 20 songs played the year before were played. They also included Alice and I Was Wrong. Could be the same tour.
when I saw them 2006, 16 of the songs the did previous year. New this time was Slept, Corrosion and Something Fast.
Could be the same tour..
when I saw them 2007 they did 15 songs from the year before. the other was First And Last, which they skipped the previous year only, so it was not so new.., and On The Wire, which also was skipped only the year before. So, nothing new. Could be the same tour. Again.
when I saw them 2008, 17 songs were the same as the year before. The other was a change back to Train/Det Boul, and two songs that have not been played for a while, Marian and Floorshow.
Two oldies on the setlist...still, could be the same tour.
when I saw them 2009, 18 of the 20 played songs were the same... I Was Wrong was back in the setlist. and they did Good Things (which they aslo did on one or two occasions the previous year, but not when I saw them. 18 out of 20? Could be the same tour.....
In 2009 the played 20 songs when I saw them. 14 of them was still on the setlist since 2002.
In 2011 the Sisters are what they are. Which is the same as the Sisters was in 2002. They should at least be Sisters 2011.....
