Phoenix wrote:It depends on the band (recent lineup changes and depth of material) and how often they tour, I think. Saltatio Mortis and Kamelot played identical sets. Mors Principium Est and Scar Symmetry played mostly similar sets but varied a few songs. Amorphis played two drastically different sets.
The rumour (read as "hope") this year is that Insomnium is playing one regular set and one set of Winter's Gate in its entirety. Which would make me sad to miss.
Kamelot varied a couple songs - specifically, they played When the Lights Are Down for the theater set but Ghost Opera and Karma for the pool deck set. I think they shortened their little ending bit (during Forever) to make room for the extra song.
I'd be stunned if one of Insomnium's sets wasn't
Winter's Gate. Makes way too much sense and it fits perfectly with their headline shows, which feature Winter's Gate plus about 45min of hits (which is all they'll play on the Epica tour). I'm making the trip up to Panama City in September to be absolutely sure though - that was my favorite album last year and I'm a sucker for full-album shows. If I happen to see it twice... well, I'll manage.
