      I asked about getting Studio M a couple of times, but the idea
      didn't catch on.

      Yeah, but luckily I wasn't contracted to watch it all the way
      to the end ;). It was more than long enough for me.

      Well, in Quebec City IQ did three encores, and I'm pretty sure
      that was more than originally intended.

      I think they hedged their bets by leaving so early. Of course
      their fans would want more if they were expecting another half hour :-P.

      I think if time was running short for the venue it would make
      *more* sense to keep the set longer and any potential encores
      shorter. That said, it was already more than long enough for me.
