[1] a show is unique if no other show has the same songs in the same order

[2] a show is different from another show if the set of songs are different, regardless of order.

[3] electric and acoustic versions are counted as different songs.

[4] a song is counted as unique regardless of how it is performed.

[5] variation is computed as the ratio between number of different songs and mean number of performed songs.
