nektar35, we connected via comments after the Mike Peters show in February, and I see that we were again at the same show last night, Chuck Prophet at Jammin Java. Excellent performances by both Erelli and Prophet. It's a pity that Chuck was plagued with such lousy sound board work though. The show was a last minute flyer for me. It's my hometown venue, and a friend suggested we go. I didn't know Mark Erelli was the opener until I got there. I've been a fan for 20+ years, and I'd never seen him before last night. I wasn't disappointed. Glad to see you're still a regular on the concert circuit. Best to you and yours in the new year.

A light show, really? What did it consist of? I liked the horns, never saw that with Hot Tuna before, but I could see where it would get old after a while.

Hi, I took your advice and removed @With[Steven Bernstein] from all the songs for Hot Tuna 12/7 -- thank you for adding the notes for the other shows of the tour It kind of took me by surprise at the show, as I had not heard anything about it!

Thanks so much for posting yesterday’s Billy Bremner show!
Never saw the original line up, so this was a thrill!

nektar35, I've been told that Elliot, who plays guitar for the Deplorables, works at the law firm that represents Mike in the US. Only have that second hand, but at least your info seems consistent with it. In the wouldn't believe it if you saw it in a movie category, I was the one who requested "Breathe" during the main show. I've loved that song since it came out. If I'd known he'd already played it in the pre-show, I'd have requested something else, but I really wanted to hear it, so I'm glad I didn't know. Drop me a comment if you're back in the DC area for another show. Maybe we can meet up.

Amazing work on the Pre-show set! I like it just the way you did it, before the show, the same way it happened in real time. 550 miles!!! That's incredible! I only had to travel about 20 miles. Did you pick up a copy of War on CD? I'm thinking that has to be a collector's item. Your've transcribed over 2700 concerts overall. Extraordinary! I regret that I didn't get to meet you at the show. It seems we share the same obsessions.

Please use the exact venue or location for the concerts you attended following the guidelines at
In the meantime when you create a new venue there's a specific warning not to use the festival name as venue
Please don't use festival names like Lollapalooza Festival for venues, but rather use the name of the actual venue, e.g. Grant Park in Chicago for this specific example. Also check our festival naming convention for details.

Sorry. . Just saw your question about Carl Palmer now. Arthur sang the 3....KARN EVIL 9, KNIFE EDGE and FIRE. GREAT set, fun show

Sorry about the typo on the "Endless Party" track Gangwar setlists. That was purely unintentional. Thanks for fixing those up for me. More later...:) Tom

Thanks my guests?

Hey Nektar....could not get there 5 p.m yesterday. Do you have Elliott's Rockwood set available please,? See u soon. Thanks, Benny

Hello, I was at The Church live on 10/5 and 10/6 as well, and decided to contribute to the set list for 10/6 live. I hope it is alright I have done this. Just saw you created thousands of set lists!! OMG how do you do it?

Nektar35 benny here...thanks for fixing it to Vanderbilt Hall for Paul show last night. Were you able to get in? I didnt want to kill six gours after my workday ended, on a prayer! DID PEOPLE GET IN WITHOUT TICKETS?

Hi Nektar35,

Thank you for your answer. I hope to find the scans I'm looking for.
I will contact you if I can not find them.

Thanks again,


I'm looking for a scan of the concert ticket from Steve Hackett in Tarrytown 2015.
Did you keep your ticket?

Thank you!

Thanks for your prompt response. To leave a comment on my homepage just click on the blue letters in "bendobrin" and it will take you to my page.

There are multiple reasons for leaving links to sources and/or providing comments about setlists you create or edit. Right now we both know that you are a reliable user and this is accurate. But what about five years from now when somebody else is looking at these shows. Maybe another user posts a setlist for the same date at the Landmark Theater in Syracuse because they saw a mislabeled clip of "Ocean Gypsy" on youtube that gives that date and venue and leaves a link to the video. A moderator sees two setlists for the same day and has to decide which is correct. Your correct setlist has no link or comment to verify it and the Syracuse one does. (That wouldn't apply to this particular show because you were there and we now have comments and links on it.) He is probably going to assume the Syracuse show is more likely correct and merge your show into that incorrect one.

So it is not just a matter of the two of us knowing this is accurate NOW but we also want to insure that in the future other users and moderators will.

bendobrin, If U go on the Tour page of the official Renaissance website, this tour is listed as "2017 Symphonic Journey Tour". Not all of the shows on the tour have the 10-piece Chamber Orchestra...
I am Not sure, if I am replying to U correctly, that is via a new comment on the bottom of my profile page (forgive me, if I have done so, incorrectly).
I replied earlier on the bottom of "Edits and Comments" on the actual Renaissance - 10/26 set list that I posted. I will delete those 2, when & if I hear back from U.
The source of my Renaissance set list dates & shows are tickets that I have purchased 4 these events. These dates r also on the Tour page of the official Renaissance website. I can assure U that these r "correct/true dates/performances." U noted a facebk llink as a tour name & a partial listing of tour dates. I am Not a "Facebk" person. I attended the Ridgefield Playhouse performance a few hours ago & my source 4 the above posted set list is the notes/ set list I kept, confirmed by the set list I took off the stage. I have seen this band over 100 times...

Can you please put a source onto your Renaissance setlists please. Right now I know they are correct, but I could forget later. It was hard for me to find much information on their 1970s shows. Just a quick comment like "found on the band website or Facebook page" would be enough.
