Default Farewell setlist

So let’s say they get Richie to come back for a farewell tour. What are they going to play ? I mean, pretty much everything from their catalogue is out of reach for Jon nowadays. I remember how we used to say: “he plays a lot of the LH stuff because it’s easy on his vocals”. Not the case anymore. Is Jon going to come to terms with the fact that they are a nostalgia act (at least for the final tour) ?

I guess nobody here believes the repetitive “we are digging deep through the catalogue for this tour” talk anymore, but considering it’s the final tour, could they actually do that ? What are your thoughts ?

Cheers

Eduardo

I'll bite. Here would be my ideal, somewhat realistic setlist for a farewell tour with Richie. By putting the songs in order I think it really enhances the setlist structure. Rush did this on their final tour and I loved it. I'd also only want them to do a limited run in stadiums, not a massive multi-year money grab (though that's not what we'd get). Ideally I would want them to do 50 shows max and only cover a handful of US states and European Countries along with Japan and Argentina/Brazil. Doing it that way would truly be going out on top and give all of the diehards a chance to see them.

1. When We Were Us (Or a new song that they write together)
2. This House Is Not For Sale
3. We Weren't Born to Follow/Superman Tonight
4. Lost Highway/We Got it Going On
5. Who Says You Can't Go Home
6. Have a Nice Day
7. It's My Life
8. Just Older
9. These Days/Diamond Ring/Something for the Pain
10. Someday I'll Be Saturday Night
11. In These Arms (David on Vocals)
12. Keep The Faith
13. Dry County/Bed of Roses
14. I'll Be There for You/Lay Your Hands on Me (Richie on Vocals)
15. Blood on Blood (With a video tribute to Alec)
16. Born to Be My Baby/Livin in Sin
17. Bad Medicine (with Shout)
Encore
18. Bad Name
19. Wanted (Richie takes some of the vocals)
20. Prayer
21. Runaway
Encore
22. Always (though this one probably won't be possible without "help")
23. Never Say Goodbye

Only songs from This House and 2020. Richie will love it.

Stuff they would probably have to do on a farewell:

Runaway
Bad Name
Prayer
Wanted
Bad Medicine
I'll Be There For You
It's My Life
Who Says

Stuff they will probably do:
Raise Your Hands
Lay Your Hands On Me
Born To Be My Baby
Blood On Blood
Bed Of Roses
Keep The Faith
I'll Sleep

Stuff Jon will want to do:
Lost Highway
We Got It Going On
Born To Follow
This House

Stuff they might do:
Always
These Days

Never Say Goodbye acoustic would be nice....

So based on that.....

I would say...

Blood On Blood
This House
Bad Name
Born To Follow
Lost Highway
It's My Life
Born To Be My Baby
Bed Of Roses
Lay Your Hands On Me (Richie Vocals)
We Got It Going On
Raise Your Hands
Runaway
Keep The Faith
I'll Be There For You
Who Says
I'll Sleep
Bad Medicine

Never Say Goodbye (Acoustic)
Always or These Days
Wanted Dead Or Alive
Prayer

Feel like I may be missing something obvious here. I know there isn't anything from 2020, and Jon might want to include something, but the album was pretty much the biggest flop of their career commercially, so I can see them ignoring it.

There will never be a Farwell tour and Jon will never retire.

It's either that or he starts to mime the whole show, which would be a disgrace!

I tend to agree with this. I think they will just fade away.

1. Lost Highway
2. We Weren't Born To Follow
3. You Give Love A Bad Name
End of Show, because at this point either Jon or the audience is gone. Both due to a lack of vocals.
