I agree with the bolded, but why does it take them so long to evolve the sets? You're in NJ, no problem for you (other than the obvious) - the 'great things' start to gain momentum as the tour moves into the northeast. Texas and the rest of the south get much more generic sets and weaker performances as a result and I think that's where a lot of the whining comes in. Include me in the group of whiners, but it's too easy to call us Southerners whiners when you're within a few hundred miles of the mid-tour venues (iow, you'd be whining too). Just sayin'.
No more whining - my new model is no shows before mid-June.
