Setlisting Creates Crowdsourced Gallery of Concert Setlist Photos
Adds feature for music fans to browse growing archive of concert setlists
The setlist - the sequence of songs performed at a concert often handwritten by the artists themselves - attracts fans of all touring musical artists as a memento of a past show. Like the recap of a sporting event that avid sports fans seek shortly after the event, the setlist reveals the transitions, milestone songs (opener, closer), momentum and reflects the ebb and flow of the live music experience -- and sometimes gives insight into songs initially chosen but scratched at the last moment -- in a simple and concise display.
“Fans of live music know that their favorite artist is putting thought into what songs will be performed that night, “ says John Reynolds, Co-Founder of Setlisting “Since concerts are an intimate artistic experience between fans and musicians, the setlist is an endearing keepsake that brings a fan right back in their seat to reminisce about the songs played at that concert.”

This feature on Setlisting allows fans to attach one or more setlist photos to a recent or past concert, which can be enlarged for better viewing. Fans can browse setlists for all artists in a separate gallery of setlist photos, as well view recently uploaded setlists displayed on the Setlisting home page.
