Yea, and there was a discussion here back then about the band using backing tracks live. I think the best solution would be if they stripped down the arrangements to a 4/5-piece and just played the LB songs like that, with a more minimalistic and rockist approach. I mean, between the late 80s and mid 00s they changed their sound like 10 times and they had to accommodate songs from each era into their live setlists, so I honestly see no problem there.
