One I am always excited about new music. Always get excited for live shows. Please tell me that John is not truly planning on doing a 13 song show for this extensive tour? I have ALWAYS touted JM as having the best run of records with tracks 1-13 being top notch! Uh Huh Scarecrow Jubilee Big Daddy Human Wheels I mean WHAT A RUN! But at this point to tour and give this little effort? Is he ill? I hope not. But this clearly shows who still LOVES performing LIVE. Springsteen is a beast and nobody compares. Fogerty,Hiatt, and even Seger are way above doing a 13 song set. We shall see I guess. Flame away or agree.........

Where did you hear this, can you post a link, also i wish John's ''fans'' would stop comparing him to those other guys. I'm a fan of Fogerty, but at this point he's a nostalgia act, ditto for Seger. As for the other two, i admire them as songwriters, but their voices are like nails on a chalkboard, i couldn't care less if they played for twelve hours straight.

In this day and age it's about a dollar and for JM ticket price 13 songs is a joke......should be at least 20. But hey he hasn't taken care of himself the best (health wise) maybe at 62 he just can't rock it anymore time-wise. Springsteen is 64 I think.

The summer tour was in casinos, which pay an artist and ask that they not play a long set. Their goal is to get people into their casino to gamble, eat and spend money, not enjoy a long concert. When John headlines his own tour, as he will do on the Plain Spoken tour, he will play a full set. Expect a minimum of 90 minutes and 18 songs with the possibility of two hours and 24 songs within reason. The beginning of the No Better Than This tour was 2 hours and 24 songs, and he even played 25 songs in Lowell, Mass. in February 2011. You will get your money's worth
