Changing from one song to the next when gigging using Live?

Hi guys

I'm not yet an Ableton Live user, but considering this for a new live band project.

Before I jump in and buy Live, I'd like to ask how people manage multi-song sets? Is it quick to close one Live project and open the next one? Can you sequence them so the next project opens when the previous one ends?

I'm concerned that it will take time to close one project and open the next one, leaving dead air time when I'm on stage.

Keen for insight about how Live users are managing this!

I don't perform live, but from what I observed, it does take some time for Sets to load, so most people put all the songs in one Set, and use Session View or Locators to change songs.
