Las Vegas Weekly - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

"We're learning about 30 or 40 songs. We're actually gonna do two sets [a night]. A first half with deep cuts, stuff from the first and second record, stuff that didn't even make it on albums, a lot of different things. We'll do all that, go off and come back on and do Hysteria all the way through. It's gonna be a big night, a big, long night."

"It's going to be different every single night. We've got almost 40 songs to pull from, including the 11 on Hysteria. It's pretty trippy when you think of it that way, trying to do things that we have never done. It's a lot of rehearsing, too. I think even some of the days that we're playing we're going to be soundchecking so we can get an extra song or two into the set that night."

"I know for a fact that fans, especially die-hard fans, are just going to freak when they hear some of these songs."
