Ah right I see. It's not a big deal I was just curious. If it helps after CSN&Y's set finished at 4am it was agreed to wait for the morning sunrise before starting the next act so Butterfield went on at 6am. To me that would be a new day and like you say it seems a bit silly to have it as the 17th but it's not a big deal. On Butterfields official release of the show in 2016 it was listed as the 17th so that's good enough I guess ;)

I get what your saying about the Paul Butterfield set AT Woodstock being pushed over from the 17th of August. I just thought to change the date as Jimi Hendrix set is put as the 18th and he was meant to close the event on the 17th. Surely the Hendrix set should be the 17th as well then. Would you agree?

Hi,

I’m not sure if you heard yet but Brian Johnson, Phil Rudd, and Cliff Williams just returned to AC/DC for a new album. They’ve been saying in interviews that they wanna tour but they can’t right now due to Covid but hopefully in the near future they will tour again. If this happens then the June 28, show where it says last show with Phil will have to be changed and the final rock or bust show where it says last show it’s cliff will have to be changed to just last show with AXL. I won’t edit anything until another tour happens but I just wanted to bring this to your attention and sorry if you already knew I’m just super hyped they came back and we’re getting another AC/DC album with Brian Phil and cliff after everything that happened

You reverted my setlists. I have recordings of those shows. Idk what to put for a source...

But perhaps for keeping this date consistent with the other setlists on that tour, keep March 17th -82 as The Grandmothers but add a note that they were really billed Mothers Of Invention.

Hi! Regarding the Mothers Of Invention concert in Stockholm in March -82. I got the information from the digital archives of Sweden's biggest newspaper Dagens Nyheter, which is only open to paying subscribers. Meaning I can not provide a link to it. But I took a screen cap of an ad on the day of the show and uploaded here, https://imgur.com/NZ4SzeG (not sure how long it stays online before the link expires).
Perhaps just a PR stunt to boost ticket sales, but as you see the group was actually billed Mothers Of Invention, not The Grandmothers, on that date. Hope this info helps!

Thank you! :)

Hello! I need your help with something. We have a troll user making some nasty edits and comments on this setlist (link provided below), so I think this setlist should be locked. I only reverted this setlist back from their edits once, but their response told me in so few words that reverting the setlist back again won't solve the problem. Please don something about this when you can. Thank you! :)

Thank you! :)

Hello! Remember yesterday how you changed the capitalization of the Van Halen song "Ain't Talkin' 'bout Love"..? Well, there's a user on here that keeps changing some of the setlists back. They're arguing that since they added the setlists onto the site, they have say over how the song is listed on here. I tried explaining that this capitalization was incorrect and that the song is now supposed to be listed differently, but to no avail. They keep reverting it back on a few setlists. Could you do me a favor, please, and change the song to how it's supposed to be listed now and then lock the setlists? This user just won't listen. Thank you! :)

Can you do something about Luke71 deleting tour name on Corey Taylor's 2019 sets? Its even printed on the ticket stubs and the posters I have from various shows.

II received notifications for both sets of edits. My apologies for opening a dialogue on an ambiguous external rule, it won't happen again.

Very interesting, seems like that contradicts the musicbrainz rules too. Perhaps next time you should post a link to the specific example for clarity's sake, instead of reciting a (ambiguous) external rule?

Executive Chimp,
I'm leaving that '86 Stevie Ray Vaughn show as is on setlist. I looked up the show on several different Stevie Ray Vaughn sites, and they all agree with what is listed here. So you called it, my tape is wrong. So now I gotta figure out just what show I've had all these years.

(4) Capitalize contractions and slang consistent with the rules above to the extent that such clearly apply. For example, do not capitalize o' for "of", 'n' or n' for "and".

I think you've misinterpreted the very rule you've stated I think this means that as "About" should be capitalised, any contraction of About should also be capitalised.

That said, I actually agree with your choice and think "'bout" reads better.

Your native language is English or American for those across the pond.
Your reason to revert Don't You Worry 'bout a Thing
(4) Capitalize contractions and slang consistent with the rules above to the extent that such clearly apply. For example, do not capitalize o' for "of", 'n' or n' for "and".
wouldn't this be ruled out by "Short prepositions (three letters or less)" . Since about is five letters does this rule apply?

Hey Mr. ExecutiveChimp, I have a question about protocol. I was going to add the setlist for a Stevie Ray Vaughn show from 2-19-86. I received this show on cassette a few days after the performance. I friend of mine back then taped it. But the setlist is already up, and it's completely different than my recording. I don't see any indication where they got the set list from. What do you suggest? Not sure if he did two shows that night. I don't think that was something he would do at that point in his career.

Hi,
You've merged "Sag mir wo die Blumen sind" with "Seek and You Shall Find".
"Sag mir wo die Blumen sind " is the German version of "Where Have All the Flowers Gone"
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Where_Have_All_the_Flowers_Gone%3F
Seek and You Shall Find and Where Have All the Flowers Gone are different songs.

https://www.setlist.fm/stats/songs/pete-seeger-63d6262f.html?song=Where+Have+All+the+Flowers+Gone?

There are many non-English cover songs on Setlist that are credited to the original artist.
That's why I don't understand the merging.
If you absolutely have to do it please merge with the right song.

Dear Executive Chimp,
Joan Baez is a quite popular American singer. She's the only artist I saw in my life that previously had performed in Woodstock. I saw her twice in Frankfurt, Germany. It was a very special moment, when she sang Pete Seeger's song completely in German language. She knew the lyrics by heart. We all felt it was a bow towards the audience and she received well-deserved standing ovations.
To change this song from "Sag mir wo die Blumen sind" to a strange "Seek and You Shall Find" just feels wrong. It does not do justice to that very special moment, which was the reason that I immediatly booked tickets for the next concert one year later.
I know that there are lots of discussions, but as far as I can see the general answer in the forum is, that the song should be used here with the translated title, e.g. https://www.setlist.fm/forum/setlistfm/website-support/problems-with-songs-33d6b809?page=159#7bd7928c .
I would kindly ask´you to review and take back your change.
Thanks a lot in advance!
Markus
