Q. Hello Oracle!
I was wondering if when the band plays 2 shows at the same venue 2 nights in a row if there is any variation between the setlists between the two nights.
Thanks,
James


The Oracle replies:

I know that Bruce Springsteen & Radiohead, for example, have different set lists from show to show but their production set-up allows for such vast changes daily. Coldplay have many effects, videos and lighting that are incorporated into the concert so it’s not possible to mix it up too much. There is the occasional tweak to which songs are performed on the B & C stage.
