Well I see the time frame is about 75 mins...its possible its being reserved for the more theatrical portion of the show (FMF, OWB, etc???)

I'm gonna say they're not playing it. 10 minutes left, they just started I'm Eighteen, and obviously still need School's Out.

Pretty disappointing. I know Alice had hinted at playing stuff from RYFAY before, but nothing quite explicit as this. I'd go as far to say this is just a blatant lie. :(

Still a great performance though.

Something must have gone wrong I guess...shame especially since this year is the 30th anniversary of RYFAY too...I was beyond pumped to hear that insane guitar opening....I...saw you with your wedding gown...the prettiest dress....I share your tears

Seems like they're going over their time to play Ace of Spades. Works for me.

Why even mention you're playing a song if you're not?

Why mention adding theatrics for that specific song if you're not playing it at all :/

I'm more suprised that they dropped B$B then that they didn't play Roses.

1. You really shouldn`t set your heart on something happening, even if Alice says it. No guarantees.
2. When he said that he may not have realised they had a shortened set time.
3. They still did a fantastic show!

Just goes to show that song isn`t as essential as Alice seems to think ;)

I can't understand your going off the rails in an emotional outburst, Annie Wilkes style. For nearly 50 years he's admitted he lies, so that's a huge part of who he is. In other news, he'll play the nauseatingly overplayed SO and Poison until hell freezes over. There will always be the ruined version of HOF and a drum solo, as well. Oh goody.

Not an emotional outburst I was just hoping for a little switch up in the setlist a change and to be disappointed,next time Alice , don't tell us just play it unexpectedly ok?, I was just letting out my frustration.

I understand, and had been wishing for a real setlist shakeup for 15 years, I've given up any hope of that. To me, one or two new things in a show is not even a beginning. I know that there are songs which don't work (he did a different version of Who Do You Think We Are in 2004 and it was DOA, to my ears anyway), but...

...at the BP gig, we got Caught In A Dream, You Drive Me Nervous and It's Hot Tonight, which all smoked. Those three and seven from the then new album were a refreshing change of pace. There's ten right there which I don't believe any promoter forced them to play. I know the set was like 28 songs, but, even the worn out hits were tolerable in that set.

And he needs a keyboardist. That always made a difference in textures. There's my nickel ninety-eight's worth.

While it's completely true Alice does sometimes lie (and other times might just miss-remember or make a mistake), you may like to listen to Kylers new Blog podcast as he briefly mentions the Roses thing around the 15min mark which shows that they DID consider playing the song, did think about and prepare the theatrics (featuring Sheryl) and it *MIGHT* still turn up.

didn't turn op yesterday evening in Lokeren.
Poison came very soon in the setlist, Paranoiac Personality was well received imo ( people around me seemed to know it very well) , BDB was dropped, and the only supprise was 18 sung with Marilyn Manson, who was headliner.
