Fat chance she's going to make dramatic setlists. Have you witnessed her numerous times she's said in her career "I'm working on a new setlist of songs, putting a lot of new stuff" She's got the same prehistoric notion of whatever happened to them in Rumours tour when they played new songs and almost got booed off the stage. That has haunted her since to this day.

We're lucky to get 1 maybe 2 changes, or new songs that get added in and yanked back out after a couple tries. Someone needs to shake her and be like DO NEW STUFF, but she never fully goes along with it and changes her mind.

It's the most obnoxious thing about her career to me is that she could have done SO much more over the years.

The only silver lining for me was getting to hear Bella Donna and Wild Heart even if it's just medley arranged. That tour she stuck her neck out a little bit which it was like FINALLY. But man, so many missed opportunities.

Honestly I have always seriously doubted this claim.... it just makes for a good excuse to not push the set list.

Does anyone know WHICH shows those would have been, and if there are any contemporaneous accounts (fan accounts, or actual reviews etc) of any specific shows where this happened??

Wasn’t it supposed to be in Kansas somewhere? I bet Stevie’s recollection is exaggerated. Very early in the tour — from the Jacques Cousteau benefit through March — they were still doing a bunch of pre-1975 songs. Obviously, at some point, they decided to drop some of those warhorses and do more Rumours songs. I bet what happened around that time was that audiences just thought they were going to hear “Sunny Side of Heaven” and “Tell Me All the Things You Do” and the like and were suddenly listening to “Dreams” and “Oh Daddy.” Of course, applause was probably subdued.
