A wise musician pointed out to me that when performing solo, I should, "leave out the lead breaks." I said, 'but, that's how they do it on the record.' To which he replied, 'No, on the record they have a screaming electric lead over the acoustic guitar.' Viva la difference!
Today's audiences have the attention span of a gnat. Don't give them an excuse to drift off and turn their attention away from your performance.
By leaving out the lead break, you'll be able to shorten the song, thus creating more space for additional tunes at the gig.
