How does Lars make the setlists

Postby MetKing » Thu Jun 15, 2006 3:31 pm

I was just wondering how Lars makes the setlists.

and how he chooses to add songs and such.

Thanks

Before every show he's given a data sheet that's built similarly to the way this site is. It tells him what the setlist was the last time they were there, what theyve played lately, what they havent, etc. Lars uses that to build that night's setlist.

He also has to take into account things like what songs work well at the beginning, middle, or end of a show, what guitars the other guys will be using for which songs, what songs have pyro, etc.

They'll usually print out a "first draft" setlist and then he'll take it to the other guys and talk it over and Lars will go over it with a sharpie and make changes. Frequently he'll put songs in that club members request before the show at Meet N Greets. He usually does the setlist right after the M&G.
