I once got a bit of bashing for calling a Y&T gig safe. What I meant by “safe” is that you don’t have to think twice about whether they will make a killer gig or not. Because they always do. This was the 10th time I have seen them live and they’ve always been amazing. Every time. What’s not safe is their setlist. Sure, they do have their must-play-songs, just like every band that has been around for a long time but they never play it safe by only going out and playing the hits and the classics, they always change the set around, playing lesser known and sometimes even obscure stuff. And those songs always go down like a charm. Somebody should tell Paul Stanley about this. Which in turn means that as fan to say that “I’ll skip this gig because I’ve already seen them so many times” is a mistake. If you do you’ll miss out because with Y&T, no tour is like the other, song-wise.
