    It sounds like he just goes non-stop for 90 minutes. Is he possibly trying to make an impression on Ed and Al? [img]smile.gif[/img]

    I don't think he's 'auditioning' for VH on this tour. The last one, maybe. But, if he were trying to make an impression on Ed and Al he probably wouldn't be saying some of the things he said, like at the press conference he did with Sam. LOL

    I think Dave's just trying to outperform Sam by hitting people with nothing but the classics. Not too much banter, just rockin'. [img]graemlins/devil.gif[/img]

    Since this is speculative, I'm going to move this to Opinions/Speculation.

    He's trying to squeeze his scripted longer concert into a smaller length of time [img]tongue.gif[/img]

    I think fear is driving Dave to this tight scripted show... any deviation from the script and Dave risks losing control. This band may be tight in the song performances... but they are all hired hand 2nd fiddles so there's probably little to no personal interaction between them and Dave... so if Dave goes off script there's no one to pull the show back on track.

    This is nothing new. Each time I've seen Dave the last couple tours there's been a minimum of banter.

    He played around just a hair more at the second MN show last year, but that was because of the deaf interpreter being there. In a way it's nice to see Dave just go straight through the set because it moves so fast. At the same time, I'd like to hear a bit more from Dave. He's got such a good manner of storytelling, you know?

    When he opened for BC, I thought it was because he was pressed for time and just wanted to make as great of impression as possible. I was really surprised when I've seen him headline that he doesn't play around more.

    Sounds like a combination of all the answers given. Shorter amount of time, 'auditioning' for Ed and Al, giving the fans pure Rock N Roll, etc.

    Maybe Dave wants to do the total opposite of Sammy.
