As a collector of live audio, I totally disagree. Varying setlists is what makes it fun to collect. A tour where they play the same songs every night is not interesting at all. And while I'm not at these shows I might be in the future and they do the same thing, so I might not be going
I agree we shouldn't expect Kiss to vary the set nightly they're not Bon Jovi, Springsteen, Metallica, U2 and about a bunch of other bands that do it. But that being said not everyone is a collector so that doesn't seem like a valid reason and I'm saying that as a collector. I do hope and set expectations to not get the same songs every tour. Keep a few core one and mix up 5-10 song from any era inc new cd songs and i think all fans can be satisfied. i know I was jazzed in 04 when I saw COTN, Pledge, Tears etc...but when they got to NJ not one of those songs or any obscure song for that matter was left in the show.....IMO it's been stale since that point and I also notice they don't say "with Tommy and Eric in the band we can play anything" any longer cause people will know the real reason is laziness to rehearse material. it's easy to rely on autopilot and play the same set you did last tour.
