    Opinions needed for 70-80s arena rock tunes

    OPINIONS NEEDED! Last friday was the debut performance of another band I do called The Ultimate Sellout Band. It's a 6-piece band (3 powerful vocalists, 2 guitars, bass, drums, keys) & we're doing 70s-80s arena rock.
    The set list is below. Help us fill out our 1st 3 hr set list for our upcoming May 4th show @ the hard rock in seattle. We will need another 25 tunes.

    Post up the artists & songs. The more, the better, but keep within the band's format, please.

    Last friday's debut setlist:
    Foreplay (instrumental) - Boston
    Spirit Of Radio - Rush
    Rock and Roll Band - Boston
    Barracuda - Heart
    Blue Collar Man - Styx
    More Than a Feeling - Boston
    Limelight - Rush
    Renegade - Styx
    Carry On Wayward Son - Kansas
    Rock n Roll - Led Zeppelin
    Surrender - Cheap Trick

    So far, I'd like to add...
    Rush's Xanadu, Natural Science & Hemispheres
    Yes' I've Seen All Good People & Roundabout
    REO Speedwagon
    Pink Floyd
    Blue Oyster Cult
    Ted Nugent
    The Who
    Van Halen
    Deep Purple
    ELP & whatever else you can think of.
    ...but we also need some radio classics from that era. Think gradiose!

    Thin Lizzy - Don't Believe a Word
    Who - Won't Get Fooled Again
    Deep Purple - Lazy
    Radar Love (the White Lion cover would be right up your alley)
    Whitesnake - Still of the Night
    Queen - Innuendo
    Extreme - Get the Funk Out
    The Knack - My Sharona
    Chicago - 25 or 6 to 4
    38 Special - Hold On Loosely
    George Thorogood - Bad to the Bone
    Judas Priest - The Hellion/Electric Eye
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    Disclaimer: I was born in 1990, so I'm going off what you've posted and what I've heard and liked on the local Classic Rock stations.

    Yes - Owner of a Lonely Heart
    Journey - Don't Stop Believing (Dubious Rock-nicality, should go down well with the audience though)
    Thunder - Love Walked In (Technically 90s by a couple of months, but it should fit in close enough)
    Scorpions - Rock You Like a Hurricane/Wind of Change
    Thin Lizzy - Jailbreak, Boys Are Back in Town, Emerald

    Pretty much anything by Bon Jovi as well, if you're willing to go that far.
