While I'd have loved them to have done those tracks you mentioned, I completely disagree with the sentiments above. No fans, "so-called casual" or otherwise, are ruining anything for anyone. Any band worth its salt will choose to perform what they most feel like doing. I certainly hope that's the approach taken by the bands I love. If you feel anything was "ruined", surely it would be by the band themselves. Where I might tentatively nudge towards agreeing with what you said, is that I think it's a shame if an audience member doesn't give unfamiliar material a chance, they could be more open to it. But I reject the notion of a sort of fan hierarchy. If other fans are enjoying a gig in their own personal way, fair play to them. I say the same thing to people who think that a fan just sitting and absorbing the music is somehow not enjoying it properly compared to one who gets up and grooves. We all enjoy and appreciate stuff in our own way.

I agree completely.

Generally speaking I would agree that a concert should end on a high, euphoric note, however, I think there is a big difference between a regular concert, with perhaps other records and tours to follow and a last tour where you are bidding farewell to the fans and closing a career. It's done, that's it! There's nothing beyond that and pehaps ending on a more wistful, poignant tone doesn't seem so inappropiate. I cannot help but thinking about that last gig where Phil told Tony and Mike how much he appreciated and loved them. Kind of touching for the band and for the fans and as I said, after a moment like that, I think something like Fading Lights would be utter perfection but TCC, a song the overwhelming majority of fans appreciate, wouldn't be bad either imo.


I think Fading Lights would have been a much better choice given your arguments
