2017 D&T set breaks

Tonight's show in London, 11 songs in, they take a set break.

Didn't expect that this year.

Made a poll but accidentally selected multiple choice. Whoops.

    Re: 2017 D&T set breaks

    Said this in the other thread but,

    I don't want set breaks. However, if there were set breaks I'd be chill with it as long as they start earlier and use the break to ensure they're rested enough to play more music.

    But I'd prefer no breaks.

    Re: 2017 D&T set breaks

    As long as it doesn't negatively impact set lists (like, they end up playing basically the same first set every night or something) I'll take a set break. It's a good chance to go get a beer and talk with people.

    Re: 2017 D&T set breaks

    Almost every small venue European Show I've been to does it this way.

    David Gilmour did 3 small sets at Royal Albert Hall just this past Fall.

    Every small venue Euro show that I've been to has been broken up into 3 small sets and an encore.

    Even David Gilmour did it at Royal Albert Hall this past Fall.

    I could be wrong, but I think set breaks are more common overseas than they are here. Perhaps it won't be carried to the states?

    Re: 2017 D&T set breaks

    Yeah, but I guess considering how few chances they get to see DMB/D&T overseas, they may not care as much about variety as us in the states

    Maybe Dave knows that and sets it to cruise control

    It makes no sense at a Dave and Tim show.

    Could also just be a European type thing. Mexican shows didn't have breaks other than encore right?

    Some in the crowd still treat Tim solos as breaks.

    Re: 2017 D&T set breaks

    I was watching on Periscope before the break. Dave discussed it and based on his ramblings it sounded like "They" were making them take an intermission; that this is something "They" do. If you want to hear him talk about it, it's at 55:10 of this scope: https://www.periscope.tv/Clarmd19/1vOxwYArqkqGB?

    There was a set break when I saw D&T in Paris back in '07.

    Basically, just an opportunity for the venue to sell more drinks.

    Re: 2017 D&T set breaks

    Hopefully this is just a venue thing. I don't need a break. Plus the crowd gets all restless between sets and it takes a song or 2 to get back into things.

    Really though, what's with the short sets? 25-29 has been the norm for years. That was part of the cool thing about seeing D and T was that you were in it for the long haul marathon setlist.

    I mean I'd be okay with short sets if the song choices were better.

    Hard pass. D&T doesn't need a set break. Tim solo songs are a break for Dave and most of the crowd anyway. And Tim is a beast who doesn't need a break.

    I hope this isn't how the US will be.

    Shorter sets, Breaks and no openers - making the US tour a potential disaster compared to the classic D&T tours. Not trying to bitch but if their are only 22-24 songs instead of the near 30 and breaks at all US stops, it will be a major bummer and that's the truth

    I'd be prepared for 22-24 to be the norm this summer.

    Texas/Mexico run:

    27, 22, 22, 21, 24...


    I really don't see that jumping up to 28-30 when they get back stateside.



    I doubt there will be breaks though (and am sure there won't be openers.)
