2007 Summer Tour Setlist Game WinnersPosted by Joe Maliszeski in Site News at 3:00pm on Sunday, Dec 16th, 2007
Blame this one on me. Sorry for the slow results posting. You all know how you did already, but you also all deserve some recognition for another great year of Setlist Game play. It's better late then never they say, so without further delay let us look back on the Summer Tour Setlist Game. Last year we saw almost an equal breakdown among the albums; Unreleased (17%), Stand Up (15%), BTCS (15%), Crash (14%). This year was quite different with even a heavier play of Unreleased songs (25%), followed up with Stand Up at 14% with next closest at 11%. Definitely not an album tour by any means. Played 36 shows for the summer tour with a rarity index of 37.31 compared to summer 2006 when the band played 53 shows with a rarity index of 32.58. (Don't be mislead by the rarity indexes as they are directly related to time and the 2006 tour is obviously a year older then the 2007 tour.)
The Setlist Game also gives us an indication into how predictable the Band was for the tour. This year's average points scored per show was again higher then last years, meaning the Band's setlists were just about a song easier to predict then the 2006 Summer Tour. Openers were much much harder to pick this year while Closers were easier. The key this year looks to be most songs correctly picked as opposed to spots and openers/closers.
Big thanks to the 1,126 of you that tried for the prizes and joined in on the fun, it was a blast. Congratulations to those of you that won and earned bragging rights and prizes. For those of you that didnt win, we hope you are prepared for next tour.
