Why run a sequence to shutdown a show?

Could someone please tell me why I would want to run a sequence in the shutdown section to shut down a show when you can just list the sequences in the musical section and the show ends when the last sequence or animation is payed? I am having a hard time trying to figure out why I would use startup and shudown rather than just list the sequences. Thanks.

Let me give a scenario. Last season I started my show at 6:00PM each evening and ended it at 6:15PM. All I did was list the 5 musical sequences in the sequence editor under musicals. I did not use start up, shutdown or anything. It worked fine. This year I put the last musical sequence in shutdown and now it repeats the first musical sequence before shutting down. Do I need to cut back on the show times because I put one in shut down? I also want to have my lights come on until 10:00 then shut off. I made a 1 minute all lights on animation and made that a second show to start right after my first show. Does this sound right?

Suppose your show runs for three hours. At the end of the three hours you want a "good night folks, show is over" sequence to run.

You would place your 5 sequences in the musical tab, and they would play during the show. The shutdown sequence would then play only at the end of the show.
