User can nominate favourite artist/s in their profile and receive email alert any time a new setlist for that artist is created. This would be a great way for fans to track which songs their fave artists are currently playing, or take a trip down memory lane! One stop shop, rather than trawling individual artist sites/forums. Handy for the ultra-keen but time-poor fans who can't keep on top of which of their fave artists may be currently touring internationally... I would LOVE this feature and an email would prompt me to visit probably everyday, with my pre-set search criteria saved!

Will this help us to follow our preferred artists to know when they are about to play close to our location? If that's the point then let me know you have my +3 votes!

Hi Loretta, thanks for your suggestion. This feature or at least a similar one is already available. It's located on every artist page just below "Your Options" in the top most box. There is either a link ("Notify me whenever setlists of this artists are changed.") for registered users or an input box for anonymous users. Then you'll get updates for all changes. And that's already the problem: all changes. So fixed typos, multiple edits (e.g. as users try to figure out the correct setlist in collaboration) all trigger separate mails. So you'd probably get more mails as you would like, but at least it's worth a try.
Anyway, I leave this suggestion open as there certainly is room for improvement.
