Hi Biedjee - just to add that MaccaEDU is now leaving offensive comments - "Extremely ignorant" is what he has written to chappers2306 and I expect a similar response to my latest reasoned argument for reverting the setlist in question. Even if you decide that MaccaEDU's edit is more appropriate they should be treating other users with more respect. Thanks, T

Hi Biedjee. Hope you might be able to help with something as a moderator. There's a minor spat going on around the setlists for Arcade Fire's recent shows in the UK (see, for example, https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/arcade-fire/2018/genting-arena-birmingham-england-63ecf653.html) - and by extension all the shows on their current tour. You may know that at the end of the shows the band play the song Wake Up at the end of their encore. They finish the song, pick up mobile acoustic instruments, then exit slowly through the crowd playing a New Orleans Mardi Gras street style improvisation that usually has the chorus of Wake Up at its core but varies a great deal from night to night, often including snippets of other songs such as Bowie's "Rebel Rebel" or Ben E. King's "Stand By Me", and sometimes dispensing with Wake Up altogether and just being Rebel Rebel or some other song. Several experienced setlist.fm users, myself included, have entered this as an additional song, listing it as Wake Up Chorus and then adding an @Info note that it is played from the floor as a slow exit through the crowd and including whatever the snippets of other songs are. Other users, on the whole who were not at the show in question, or worse still have limited or no experience on this site (e.g., MaccaEDU), keep deleting these entries and just note with @Info after the main entry of Wake Up that its chorus was played as a slow exit, perhaps noting the snippet(s) of other songs. Myself and other users feel this is inadequate and doesn't reflect what actually happens at the shows. The slow exit is usually around 5 minutes long and is a really special and integral part of the show so we feel it should be given full recognition. One way to resolve it might be to add it as an additional encore or even give it as a separate part of the set - I'm reminded of U2's Zoo TV tour which had an acoustic section in the middle that is separately noted on setlist.fm as a set on Stage B that falls midway through the full set. Perhaps these Infinite Tour Arcade Fire sets should have an added New Orleans Slow Exit Through the Crowd set added with the tracks played: e.g., Wake Up Chorus (or whatever it is decided it should be called - Wake Up Reprise even), or Rebel Rebel @Cover (David Bowie), etc. What do you think? If you don't think it's an issue then we'll just have to leave it be, but if you think chappers2306 and myself have a point then it would be really helpful to have a Superpowered Moderator step in and help solve the dispute! Thanks Trevor

Thank you

My edits are being reversed and I haven't made an edit in about a week, can you please do something about that?
I'm trying to add a Tony Bennet show I'll be attending tomorrow night

The source you mention for this gig is no longer available:

Trying to remember which performance it was that I saw...

Thanks for your swift justice @Biedjee! :)

Hi Biedjee,

https://www.setlist.fm/stats/songs/antonio-vivaldi-73d63201.html?song=Concerto+No.+2+in+G+minor,+Op.+8,+RV+315,+%22L%27estate%22
https://www.setlist.fm/stats/songs/antonio-vivaldi-73d63201.html?song=Concerto+No.+2+in+G+minor,+Op.+8,+RV+315,+%22Summer%22+%28L%27estate%29
https://www.setlist.fm/stats/songs/antonio-vivaldi-73d63201.html?song=Four+Seasons:++Summer
All four songs are the same. According to setlist.fm's unwritten principle "Never use the original song title, always use some English translation", it has to get merged to "Summer" instead of the beautiful "L'Estate". I hope that moderators will find a more reasonable solution in their current discussion for multi language songs... I will wait for the result of the discussion before I put the Vivaldi songs in the song forum to be merged.

The reply is in the struggling with batch edits topic

Regarding Agua de Annique vs. Anneke van Giersbergen, I have no idea why I edited that. It was probably a forum request. Feel free to change it if it's incorrect.

Hi Biedjee,
Thanks for your info. Please remove the incorrect ones from the list of shows. Otherwise I could also report them in the "delete setlist"-forum

Hi Biedjee,
I created some proms concerts 2004, 2006 and 2007 based on this source: https://www.festivalinfo.nl/festival/4954/Night_of_the_Proms/2004/ . Now due to inconsistencies in 2007 I think that the source is not reliable on which dates there were really Rotterdam concerts. I will stop using this source, but it is the only one I found.
I will go on with 2008 and 2009 setlists, which won't be a problem, but there are some years 2010-2017, for which some Netherland concert dates seems to be missing. I couldn't find any thing about it on the net. So it will remain incomplete. I hope to finish 2008-2017 till end of the month.
One remarks: Il Novecento was renamed 2017 into "Antwerp Philharmonic Orchestra":

Hey.
I'm aware of that single release having quite a unique artist title, since I actually am a Elton fan. But I don't agree that we as mods have to go against common sense and follow every weird release name to the T's.
In this particular case I would have no objection if the song in question was for example an instrumental song, highlighting the talents of Elton's musicians - then it would make sense to call it an Elton John Band cover. But "Philadelphia Freedom" is just a regular Elton John hit, that has absolutely no striking difference from the ones that were released before or after it, nor it has any relation to any member of his touring band whatsoever. The reason why the single is named that way is unclear to me.

Hi Biedjee,
That's fine with me.

Hi Biedjee,
thanks for the info. In case of 10 setlists or so I can quickly do the correction manually. In case of many setlists concerened (like the Simple Minds songs), I'm posting it in the forum.
One other question. Is someone taking care about the troll forum ( https://www.setlist.fm/forum/setlistfm/website-support/spam-troll-user-3d6b9df?page=17 )? I posted an entry 5 days ago, and the Who & Why at Colos-Saal is still existing. I could also forward my email communication with the owner of the venue as a proove (it's in German language).
Best regards,
Markus

Hi Bidjee,
thanks for your message. I try to sort out what I can. I did so for Germany, Luxemburg, Sweden. Now I'm doing Belgium and Framce. The Netherlands will follow. There remains enough work afterwards. I'm concentrating on the Rock/Pop stuff, not caring about the classical music, as I know too less about that. And the finale song remains inconsistent. Somtimes I left it out completely, sometimes it's in one setlist, sometimes in several of them. But that's too much at the moment.
Kind regards,
Markus

Are you an administrator here? If so, please refer to my comments in the forum (ie: problems with festivals). Your help is gratefully appreciated. Thank You!!!

You may have seen this issue before. You may recall a user called Genesisfan who messed around with a lot of setlists based on live releases and what THEY thought was the correct way to put things. They basically vandalised Dream Theater’s medleys, the two major ones being Instrumedley (thankfully now fixed) and Schmedley Wilcox. The latter is still broken up into five separate parts/song sections. I was wondering if there was a way to revert or edit all of the instances where this was played. An easy way of finding them all is looking at the song Octavarium as all of its performances in 2007 and 2008 are part of Schmedley Wilcox. This medley title is used on an official release as a whole track and might be on Mike Portnoy’s setlist archive too.

Hi Biedjee,
Bonnie Tyler and Gwen Dickey definitely didn't perform that night. As a Bonnie fan I remember being disapppointed that I got Marco instead of her :)

Hi Biedjee

You've changed the artist of the following concert from Mike Garson to Celebrating David Bowie. I'm afraid this is incorrect. The concert was a Mike Garson concert (http://aladdinsanetour.com) not part of Celebrating David Bowie (http://celebratingdavidbowie.com) which had a different line-up of musicians with Garson. Could you please change it back.

Thanks, Trevor

If you would like to get other moderator opinions in the forum I think that's fine. We never officially said it in the guidelines, but making "guesses" completely destroys the credibility of the website. That's why each setlist has a 'request source' area in the moderator panel.
