Logic 9 - Import Multiple Tempo data

Hi everyone!
That's one of my first post here and I have a tricky problem to solve. I hope someone has the answer to this ^^
I'm a keyboard player, I use Logic on my Mac Pro to record and arrange songs and I have another Logic running on my Macbook on stage with my band.
On my Mac Pro I have separate projects for each song, with complicate tempo automations and time signature changes. On stage, instead, I can't switch projects between songs, too much time to close/open different project, and we often play songs as medleys or simply connected without pauses. So I use a single project for the entire gig, with all track loaded in, appropriately faded.
On stage I have also MIDI files routed out from my Motu Midi Express 128 to command various instruments, mostly with MIDI CC, and soon to command even lights, via DMX.
So I obviously need tempo automation for keeping MIDI file in sync with audio running in the project.
The problem is...
Write tempo automation in our songs it's quite a trouble, it's a huge work, and I have already done it on Logic on my Mac Pro within the single-song projects, for ALL our songs.
BUT...
When I import files on Logic on my Macbook, Logic ask me if I want to import tempo data ONLY FOR THE FIRST FILE, so I have done it for the first song but not for the other 13-14 songs to play live.
And write the tempo automation for all the songs we play live every time we have a gig make me want to kill myself. :p
There's a way to "export tempo data" from the single-song projects or import data from multiple .aiff files in the big project on my Macbook to keep tempo changes in the appropriate region?
About 5 days of tries and I can't find a solution for this T_T
Any ideas?
Thank you all in advance for help!

Would this work better if you used Mainstage for the live gigs?

Copy what? Where? I have the Tempo automation line in the global tracks and the tempo list to set all the changes typing them at the right spot ^^
Am I missing something so simple? Maybe, I'm not a Logic 9 master yet ^^°

You can copy any tempo automation line in the global tracks with the automationselection tool. Then paste it in your live-session wherever you want. Obviously you must have both songs open on your MacBook.

For curiosity...
Can you change the tempo automation line via MIDI file?
Or even paste the line in it?
