No problem. It would go back even further (to include the Systematic Chaos tour) if the forum crash hadn't happened.

Also, JLB if you're reading (we know you lurk!), please email me the setlists after the show to make updating easier.  ;)

I'm calling it now: we'll see A Change Of Seasons sooner or later this tour. It is just too fitting the moment of the history of Dream Theater we're into. Plus, it is hands down their greatest song and a huge fan favourite. I am positive about it being played again.  :)

If my memory doesn't betray me, the lap steel has been used near the end of In The Name Of God (without much success, IMO) and at the beginning of Peruvian Jam. Both in 2005/06, and both of them were improvements or jam sessions that were later dropped. So, it is 99% Octavarium!  :tup

I really doubt about it... ACOS is a very personal lyric from Portnoy, they won't be playing it for sure

Welcome here Jise :)

Anyway, I don't believe that band would cease playing their most amazing song to date beacause of its lyrical content. That would be overly stupid.

I don't understand why everyone thinks DT will dismiss songs because they're personal to Portnoy. It's like not putting a favourite film on with your partner because it means too much to your ex...


I doubt they'll dismiss epics such as TGP and ACOS because of Portnoy. I'll be very sad if they do :'(

Welcome to the forum! (Mind, I haven't been here long myself) :)

Post by: setrataeso on June 23, 2011, 12:00:41 AM
While seeing A Change of Seasons would not suprise me, I honestly would not hold my breath. I can almost guarantee they'll still be playing Portnoy songs, songs like A Change of Seasons, The Best of Times, and the full 12-step saga are all Portnoy's brainchildren. DT will exercise extreme discretion when it comes to picking songs Portnoy was close to. So, it'll be a lenghty while before we see some of Portnoy's more personal songs.

I think for this tour they'll come up with some "safer" Portnoy songs to use for now.

Some examples:

Just Let Me Breathe
anything from Scenes from a Memory
Never Enough
Constant Motion
anything he wrote for Six Degrees (song)
maybe a 12-step song, but I think that's unlikely


I'm growing concerned that the setlist is going to be very safe, just to assure the fans that DT is not going off the rails. As absurd as this sounds, I do think that DT is going to do this. If they just play a set that's too similar to what we saw for the past 2 years, I'll be pretty disappointed.

On the other hand, with Mike gone, some members might see this as a chance to play songs that Mike was less keen on (aka: more slow songs). While that's not a drastic change, if it means we see more Vacants or Disappears, then I'll be happy.

I expect them to play The Glass Prison at some point during the world tour for the new album. It's a popular song and hasn't been played since the Octavarium tour (that I know of), even though it is a 12-step song.

I think there is the opportunity for them to play any MP song besides The Best of Times. I would be really shocked if they played that song, but anything else MP-related wouldn't surprise me at all.

While seeing A Change of Seasons would not suprise me, I honestly would not hold my breath. I can almost guarantee they'll still be playing Portnoy songs, songs like A Change of Seasons, The Best of Time, and the full 12-step saga are all Portnoy's brainchildren. DT will exercise extreme discretion when it comes to picking songs Portnoy was close to. So, it'll be a lenghty while before we see some of Portnoy's more personal songs.

I think for this tour they'll come up with some "safer" Portnoy songs to use for now.

Some examples:

Just Let Me Breathe
anything from Scenes from a Memory
Never Enough
Constant Motion
anything he wrote for Six Degrees (song)
maybe a 12-step song, but I think that's unlikely


I'm growing concerned that the setlist is going to be very safe, just to assure the fans that DT is not going off the rails. As absurd as this sounds, I do think that DT is going to do this. If they just play a set that's too similar to what we saw for the past 2 years, I'll be pretty disappointed.

On the other hand, with Mike gone, some members might see this as a chance to play songs that Mike was less keen on (aka: more slow songs). While that's not a drastic change, if it means we see more Vacants or Disappears, then I'll be happy.

I have to strongly disagree on that matter. Writing the lyrics of a song does not imply nor grant the intellectual "property" of it. There is just no evidence that ACOS or any other song you listed (except pheraps for TBOT) was prominently MP's work on the instrumental side more than any other DT song, and as such there is no real reason for the band to avoid those songs.

Then why have they avoided Space-Dye Vest and Anna Lee for so long?
It's not Mike's song, true. But out of respect to his memory, I can't see DT playing it, or any of Mike's other personal songs in the near future.

Space Dye Vest was brought almost entirely complete by KM before he left the band. As MP stated, that song was always perceived as a very good song completely out of the contest of Awake and DT more in general, and as such has never been included in the band's live catalogue.

Anna Lee, on the other hand, was played many times live as long as Derek was in. Then it was probably put aside since, as clearly stated by MP on the liner notes of the FII Demos, it was mainly Derek's and James's both musically and lyrically.

Consider Afterlife. This song was written back in 86, and Chris Collins wrote the lyrics. Than, after the band kicked the man out, those lyrics were purposedly forgotten, and a new set was written by Charlie Dominici. The song has been played very often since CD's departure.

I don't know why you tried to rebut this, considering this totally proves my point. Anna Lee has always been considered Derek's song. Not because the lyrics were written by him, but that the song featured him heavily and, like you said, became "Derek's song". A Change of Seasons, musically, was a full-band effort, yes, but Portnoy penned very personal lyrics for it. What you are effectively trying to argue is that what is good for the goose is not good for the gander.  Why is it OK to put aside Anna Lee because it's Derek's song, while A Change of Seasons doesn't get the same treatment for Mike? I think you're letting your hopeful nature get in the way of looking at this realistically.
Don't get me wrong, seeing A Change of Seasons would indeed be awesome, but look at it from the band's perspective:

1)Mike left
2)They got a new drummer
3)Mike wanted back in and they said "no"
4)Mike got into somewhat of a war of words with James
5)Mike moved on to other projects
6)??
7)Profit

Does it really look good for the band, who is now currently on less-than-remarkable terms with Portnoy, to go and play one of his most personal songs?


And your Afterlife point makes no sense. The lyrics were never personal to Chris, nor Charlie. A Change of Seasons is a totally different story. IT'S A SONG ABOUT THE DEATH OF PORTNOY'S MOM for fuck's sake!

I can't see how you could possibly think that they will play A Change of Seasons so soon...

Oh wait...I forgot the main point of your argument. It's because...
That would be overly stupid.

Right. Good call dude.

Anna Lee was "Derek's Song" because he basically wrote the entire song, minus lyrics. A Change of Seasons was a full band effort on the musical side of things. That's why he didn't treat them the same way, because it's not the same situation. :facepalm:

Post by: cyberdrummer on June 23, 2011, 07:23:47 PM
I think we will see ACOS at some point on the tour, simply because I think as part of their re-establishment as Dream Theater, the band will want to play songs which are widely regarded as "classics". It's not in the same league 'personally' as Space-Dye Vest, or even, I would argue, The Best of Times. Having been written nearly twenty years ago, I think any notion of it being omitted should be disregarded.

As has been mentioned, the music was collaborative (as opposed to SDV), and the events described in it are not only much further in the past, but less literally described in the lyrics.

Even if it isn't played this tour, I don't think that that would be because of MP.

I'm not writing it off entirely at all. I am hopeful that they will play it. But, I am leaning more towards them not playing it this time around, and it's mostly because it's a song that's close to Mike.
Bearing in mind it's also a really long song, and they may not have room for it if they want to play other songs for their "re-establishment". If the lap-steel means we'll see a return of Octavarium, I would be downright shocked if they had that and ACOS on the same tour, even if they were using a rotating setlist.

I was just thinking, what are the chances that they will do Space Dye Vest on this tour? You know, just JLB and JR.

Or was that just a one-off thing?
AFAIK, it was just a one-off thing.  I would be shocked if they did it on the tour.

I recall Jordan saying not to count on SDV being played on this tour...

last month in Los Angeles I asked Jordan directly if other cities in the US would be able to see SDV live and he told me "ah, I wouldn't count on it"

So, as I understand it, the first shows were billed as "Dream Theater" shows, with tonight being the first festival show, correct?  With the warmup shows out of the way, I would think they will likely have some shorter set times at some of these festivals.  I am interested to see what they do with the set lists.  I would guess TCOT will be cut, but I wonder what else they'll change.

Yep Bosk, you're perfectly right. They got only 1 hour today, they play before Airbourne (their show is on other stage) and Slipknot (they played on the same stage as DT).  Show starts at 21:20...or 21:15 ;) I'm very curious about tonight setlist. It has 2 hours now, TCOT will be gone IMO, maybe Caught In A Web and Forsaken... Peruvian Skies is great live song, it should stay. Just like These Walls and SFAM songs.

Post by: Addy on July 18, 2011, 01:08:42 AM
Guys, I've been thinking about this lately. I've seen a lot of bands playing their songs live in lower tunings to help the vocalist in reaching higher pitches. Metallica for example plays some songs a half step down, and some of them are tuned a whole step down. Do you think it'd be a good idea if DT dropped (EDIT: lowered is what I meant - Eb standard, D standard etc.) their tuning for songs off of I&W and maybe Awake ? I mean, watching the clips from this tour, JLB is really in best shape in years, but sometimes he sounds like he's struggling during UAGM or LtL, and at the same time he's killer during rest of the set !
I wonder what you think !
Title: Re: The Dream Theater Tour Dates & Setlists Thread (UPDATED 01/16)
Post by: Ħ on July 18, 2011, 01:12:05 AM
This might be a good idea.  Usually I can't tell a key difference if I don't have a reference point.  But I think the best way to go would be to sing the vocal melodies differently and just keep the instruments the same.
Title: Re: The Dream Theater Tour Dates & Setlists Thread (UPDATED 01/16)
Post by: The Silent Cody on July 18, 2011, 01:14:27 AM
Well this could be a good way out, but They probably are aware of that - if You trying to tune down, some notes in lower tuning are just not the same like before tuning. I mean, the same frets on guitar - not always the same and good note connection...

I agree, DT should tune songs down so they could play more difficult songs for James like Learning to Live more often. I actually made a thread like this some time ago but it was about tuning down songs on the Awake tour after James' vocal rupture.
Title: Re: The Dream Theater Tour Dates & Setlists Thread (UPDATED 01/16)
Post by: Jamesman42 on July 18, 2011, 05:50:34 AM
I was think about this too.

The only thing is that some songs may have riffs that you need the standard tuning for, such as using open notes on the guitar/bass for hammer-ons and pull-offs.

You can always use a lower standard tuning and not dropped.

You know, I wouldn't mind them using a lower tuning for some songs (particularly for those from I&W and maybe for some Awake songs); lots of band did and do it; the songs might sound a bit weird in comparison, but if you hear it in a live setting without the studio version to compare, the difference wouldn't be that obvious.

You know what? I used to have the same opinion.
My mind changed after a FW concert here in Greece when they played the entire Parallels album. I think it was at least one step down, but it sounded fantastic.
I guess they could do it, and actually i am surprised that James is able to sing the older songs in the original tuning and without changing the melodic lines of the vocals.
I bet if they downtuned (since most of the older songs are in E standard tuning, lets say they tune to Eb standard) James will definately sound much much better.

It's probably different when doing an entire album.  By the second song or so, your ears have had a chance to "adjust" and you can just enjoy the performance.  I also know that it probably bothers me more than a lot of people.  I don't have perfect pitch, but I know what certain notes are supposed to sound like.  F# has a certain color to it; it's what makes songs in D sound so happy and songs in B sound so sweet.  Dropping it a half-step or more would totally change the color of the song.

If DT feel they can deliver a better performance of a given song by lowering it, then I'm not opposed to it in principle.  Sometimes, for most of us who don't have perfect pitch, you barely notice when a song is dropped.  Other times, it is a lot more obvious.  It just depends on the song.  For example, when Queensryche started tuning down The Lady Wore Black in 2000 or so, it was very apparent, but it made the overall feel of the song more dark and heavy.  On the other hand, I saw Tesla a couple of years ago, and they tuned down a couple of their songs (Edison's Medicine and, if I'm not mistaken, Hang Tough), and both of those just felt like all life was sucked out of them.

If it's a better vocal performance, I say at least try it one tour.

I'd also like to see JLB try doing less crowd work.  Just stand there and focus and see if that improves things?  This is prog, and I'd rather have a flawless performance and lose some of physical energy.  I say that because with JLB's pitch issues, it's not always the highest notes that are the problem.

It can, I agree. I also agree with your assessment of F#....if it were dropped so that F# became F, it would probably feel a little more steady and resolved on its own (that's my silly impression of the note haha).

Didn't they sold out it in 2007? 'Cause i remeber MP talking about that. And about 2009, it was just half of the place was made available because of low tickets sales?

Definitely going to Wembley! Second time seeing them there and my third time seeing DT in total. Also, I was wondering, is it going to be totally seated, because on another site that were getting ready to sell the tickets it just had seated £32.50 tickets and other seated tickets that were more expensive.

The words of the co-founder of VoicesUK:

"Not that I'm supportive of any band charging 50 quid for tickets (I fondly look back on the days when I saw DT for about a tenner in '93), but above the point has been raised that there better be a corresponding leap in the stage show for DT...

When we interviewed JP and MM, JP confirmed that they are substantially reworking their video presentation for the upcoming touring, and it will be far and away superior to anything they've had before. I suspect this could be part of a package of improvements that "might" have added to the ticket price (given when they originally started doing the whole platinum pass thing, the revenues were ploughed into the production).

Last DT tour, Kerry and I went to see Porcupine Tree with Jordan and the high standard of their video production made an impact on all of us. JR definitely talked to the other members of DT about the video, based on conversations we had with others over the next couple of days. IMO, I reckon we could maybe see something of that kind of quality and style being incorporated.

Not that this fully excuses an industry-wide screwing of concert go-ers - lets not forget this is not just DT (e.g. we will be going to see Mr Big in Manc a week on Saturday and that is over 30 quid each and is only in Academy 2!)."

  3. These Walls
  4. Build Me Up, Break Me Down OR Lost Not Forgotten (Rotate)
  5. Endless Sacrifice
*NO DRUM SOLO*

  7. YTSE JAM
  8. Take Away My Pain OR The Silent Man (rotate)
  9. Beneath The Surface
10. On The Backs of Angels
11. Peruvian Skies OR Caught In A Web (rotate)
12. Through My Words
13. Fatal Tragedy
14. Breaking All Illusions
encore:
15. Outcry

And I've actually seen UAGM live more times than I've seen PMU...

Ditto... and given the trends, looks like Toronto will get Setlist A.  Only beef is that they did Forsaken on the ProgNation 2009 tour.  It's a great song live, but we just saw it a couple of years ago.  Oh well... you can't please everyone all the time.  It's gonna be a fantastic set/show no matter what.

I'm hoping they mess this around again for the next European dates - we had TGD, These Walls and Fatal tragedy this summer - hopefully they'll switch them for something else - Sacrificed Sons would be nice, as that wasn't played over here on the last tour, and they've still never played TMOLS in Europe.

TMoLS has been played in Europe (though, to be fair, not often). I'm pretty sure they'll switch the setlist up, though I'd rather see Lines in the Sand/Scarred again rather than TMoLS/Sacrificed Sons.

Well, they would have to retire all the longish songs that have already been played in europe this summer and are still on the US set, which are:

Endless Sacrifice
The Great Debate
Under A Glass Moon
TMW/FT

That would mean about 40 minutes of free space to be filled with anything. They could even start doing what they did in the SFAM tour from the second leg on:

ADTOE
other song #1
#2
#3
#4
---
encore

But most likely they will just switch some songs and carry on with the mixed sets.

Last time they were at Wembley they played one of the worst setlists I've ever seen them play to one of the largest crowds on the tour. I'm still traumatised by that *&%$£ing  drum solo.

Having made the effort to see them this summer, here's hoping they do switch some things round. Scarred would be nice - it's one of the songs I've never seen.

Nope.  They're alternating A and B setlists, and it's on B. 

That said,  I'm also avoiding too much info,  so they might well have altered their selists or added a C by now. 

Also worth noting is that Dallas is the final show of this leg,  and the third show in Texas,  so it's remotely possible that they do something different here.

I have no hate towards TGD. Honestly, I'd love to hear (almost) every song live from their discography. Maybe I'll suggest that to JP tomorrow night.

Aside from the horribly dated lyrics and subject matter of the song, I'm not opposed to TGD in general.

I am opposed to it replacing, in my opinion, one of the best songs DT has produced in the last 8-9 years with a fairly middle of the road DT song.

Bring on Breaking All Illusions!

And then some drunk guy screamed something out during Far From Heaven. It pisses me off too.

I sat right in front of the two assholes that kefka was talking about.  They talked super loudly through FFH and I seriously wanted to turn around tear out their vocal chords... it was really distracting from what I thought were some of James' best vocals that night (not that any of them were bad).  I was a bit pissed.

At the Atlanta show last night, some genius thought that the ballad session was the time he'd tell the band what to play. For a good 5 seconds at the beginning of TSM and BTS, he bellowed out "Play fuckin' Hollow Years! Hollow Fuckin' Years!!!" The dude was probably three or four people behind me. I seriously thought about making my way back there and chopping him in the throat. Either that or have JP shoot lightning out of his eyes and disintegrate that idiot.

I feel better now :)

I feel your pain. You shoulda chewed them out the way you did MP on Twitter.

...or he could have got their twitter accounts and chewed them out there.  OR...got their phone numbers and called them up and played the ballads for them ORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR got Dream Theater to go to their house and play the ballads for them personally.

Yea. Some cunt sitting next to me at the DC show wouldn't stop screaming in my ear. If u heard a chick scream during ffh and all the quiet parts, in general, it was her.

This can definitely be uncomfortable, but at least for me there is a difference between someone showing their appreciation (albeit loudly and in an annoying way) and someone holding a loud conversation. One shows a focus on and respect for the music, and a potentially misguided choice of showing that respect. The loud, off-topic conversation is just disrespectful.

I don't know if this is the appropriate forum for this, but I'm not certain if the main DT forum would be either b/c it addresses the current tour.

Anyway, for those who have seen DT this time around, does JR seem to be having a lot of fun every night?  I've seen DT three times before:  Giagantour 2005, PN 2008 and IM 2010, but I don't remember Jordan ever being quite as active or having as much fun as when I saw him a few nights ago in Atlanta.  He was really tearing the keys up, spinning them around, and tiling the entire keyboard set at selecte parts, and when he's on the Keytar--look out.  Plus, he really seems to be enjoying the interaction with the other band members, particularly MM.  Not since Dennis DeYoung in his prime have I seen a keyboard player relish his time on the stage as I have a few nights ago.

So I want to know whether this is common for Jordan throughout this tour, or even if it is common for JR in general.  In any case, I really liked it because it really allowed him to bring the fans into the show even more.

Or perhaps he's just happy he's no longer the "new guy"    :metal

Agreed. Was at the DC show and Jordan seemed like he was having a blast out there. Hell, all of them were for that matter. I really do think Mangini's joy at being in Dream Theater is infectious, and they've all caught it.

I think you could make an argument that the rest of the guys are having more fun these days... but as far as Jordan, IMO, he was always having fun on stage.  Him and MP were always the most animated on stage, by far.

I noticed the biggest change in JLB, and then JMX.  I did catch Jordan smiling (probably more than usual) at the crowd reaction a couple of times.  I think the fans were better (more into every tune) than the Progressive Nation shows - just a bit more unified DT fan base...but it's all good.

In Atlanta if was funny during the JR zen riffer / JP shred fest portion of Endless sacrafice, when the two of them were face to face up close, Jordan playfully reached out to twang the tremolo bar of JP's guitar upon which JP promptly reached back to tweak some knob on the zen riffer.  it was quick and may have been missed unless you were right up front but I laughed my assoff. it was funny to see.  :lol

That's a good day :) I will be filming a multi-limb Rudiments video for display at the NAMM Pearl booth and doing one drum clinic: at Fork's in Nashville on Nov 15th.

The Europeans can look forward to a new set for this tour. Since there are only two ADTOE songs left to be played live, I can assume that MM means a bunch of songs from the pre-ADTOE catalogue.

Jordan was definitely distracted in Boston. I also noticed that. He seemed to be communicating with hiw tech. I also thought he was mixed a little low, so he may have been having equipment issues.

I'm going to go ahead and call this the Mangini effect.

I'd have to say that this isn't just Jordan. The whole band is a lot happier and more into it since Port "it's not you it's me" Noy left the band.

JP is smiling on stage, jumping on his foot stands, getting down and playing in people's faces (to melt them of course). Myung has been moving around a lot more and interacting with the crowd, which he never used to do....

Anyways, i think the band is just happier in general and it shows in their music and the demeanour on stage. As a fan, i'm really happy to see it since i know how hard these guys have worked to get to where they are.

the building will be ready on March 2012.

Not long to go until the guys go back on the road and take on Europe, so, let's discuss our hopes for the setlists in Europe.

I remember James saying via his twitter that he would love to bring back Trial of Tears, maybe it's a song thats going to feature. Some of the ADToE songs will also be switched out. I can see This is the Life and Lost Not Forgotten get their "debuts" and because OTBOA was played in the Summer, I can see that being dropped in favour of the song that is the next single.

Opener will probably not be changed, BITS is a solid opener. I have a feeling Breaking All Illusions will be pushed out to become the Encore, if not then I really would love Learning to Live to come back again. Lost Not Forgotten in place of Outcry maybe?

Will the instrumental be changed? Ytsejam was also played in the Summer and I can see it being switched out, the optimist in me says for Hell's Kitchen but the realist says TDOE. Or could we see Erotomania, along with Voices and The Silent Man to form the Mind Beside Itself Suite, in place of Through My Words and Fatal Tragedy?

Discussion/Predictions?

I think the ADTOE songs will stay the same, but everything else will be switched, except for Wait for sleep, The Silent man and Pull me under, since those are the only ones we didn't get to see last year.

Post by: ResultsMayVary on January 14, 2012, 07:45:34 AM
I expect to see:

Lost Not Forgotten
This Is The Life
Octavarium
Trial of Tears

Anything else is up in the air at this time. The band hasn't said anything publicly about what they would like to play as of recently.
Title: Re: The Dream Theater Tour Dates & Setlists Thread (UPDATED 01/16)
Post by: wasteland on January 14, 2012, 07:54:44 AM
If they indeed decide to drop from the setlist those songs that have already been played in the last European leg, then we will not likely have:

These Walls
Ytse Jam
Forsaken
Caught In A Web
Endless Sacrifice
Through My Words / Fatal Tragedy
On The Backs Of Angels
Under A Glass Moon

Instead, some other songs may be brought back to life:

Vacant (stronger intro to FFH than WTS, in my opinion)
I Walk Beside You (short song to represent Octavarium. Panic Attack has been played almost to his exaustion in the last couple of tours, and the other song are not exactly likely to be played soon for whatever reason)
About To Crash/About To Crash reprise (may be a good compromise to throw something lively off SDOIT without employing a massive amount of time)
The Dance Of Eternity (there needs to be an instrumental, and though it's not my favourite pick, it seems to be the most natural choice)
6:00 (a nice short awake song that has not been played in the last ten years. Logical choice)
Metropolis (may once again be the encore)
Trial Of Tears or Take The Time (as the alternative encore song)

So, that being said (and ignoring something of that), one possible setlist may be:


Bridges In The Sky
I Walk Beside You
Bouild Me Up, Break Me Down
Lost Not Forgotten
6:00
This Is The Life
About To Crash Reprise
The Dance Of Eternity
Drum Solo
Vacant
Far From Heaven / Beneath The Surface
Outcry
Trial Of Tears
Take The Time / Metropolis
---
Breaking All Illusions

That looks like a pretty realistic setlist to me, and I'd certainly be happy to see it in London.

I really hope 8V does make a comeback though.

We were all thinking the same before the tour started in July. TDOE was considered an easy call back then as well, and it was left off.

As for myself, I would not mind them throwing Ytse Jam back in the cellar, I've never been extremely fond of it. TDOE would be better, Hell's Kitchen best, but it's by far less likely.

Ytse Jam was a huge and welcomed surprise! If Ytse Jam is left off, do you think they'd revisit any other WDADU tracks? A Fortune In Lies, maybe?

A Fortune In Lies or Afterlife are the most obvious choices: Light Fuse will never be played again, most likely, (doesn't fit James's voice), and Status Seeker may be a weak choice (most people like the aforementioned more then SS, so, why not choosing them in the first place?). The Killing Hand would be the most spectacular comeback, while The Ones Who Bla Bla would not suit a dense and fast paced setlist, in my opinion.
OAMOT, finally, could be the best compromise, though not the best choice off WDADU.

My wish: The Killing Hand
Most likely: A Fortune In Lies / nothing

I hope they don't automatically rule out some songs because they played them in Europe over the summer - because obviously there are some places they'll be visiting this time around that they didn't go to last summer. I'm mainly referring to Metropolis/Learning to Live, I wouldn't care if the rest of the set was poor as long as I got either of those! But I'm not gonna get my hopes up, because I never seem to get a great setlist of songs (from a personal favourites point of view) when I go and see bands live  :lol :'(
 
I hope they don't drop OTBOA either, it's the single, it was our first taste of the new album, the opening track and it's awesome! Really hoping for Breaking All Illusions as well, such an obvious choice for the sets, I was surprised they didn't play it every leg of the last tour.

I'm not sure about Octavarium.. I mean, if the story about DT not being allowed to play MP penned songs, well Octavarium has two sections written by him.
But I'd definitely love to see About To Crash (reprise), Lifting Shadows Off a Dream, The Killing Hand, 6:00, The Answer Lies Within or other songs they haven't played for a while, and songs from the new album they haven't played yet.
One possible setlist:

Intro
Bridges In The Sky
Build Me Up Break Me Down
The Anser Lies Within
Lost Not Forgotten
Drum solo, leading to
--> 6:00
This Is The Life
The Killing Hand
The Dance of Eternity
Forsaken
Outcry
Take The Time
On The Backs of Angels
About To Crash (Reprise) - Losing Time/Grand Finale
---
Breaking All Illusions

Around 2 hours :)

Edit: Well, I realized that I didn't include Lifting Shadows off A Dream.. but I guess they could switch back and forth between different setlists like they did in the US.

I'm still trying to decide if I want to go in blind or if I should see what the first 3 set list are (I'm going to the fourth European show)... decisions decisions!

Bridges In The Sky
Pull Me Under
Build Me Up, Break Me Down
The Dark Eternal Night (with JP's original vocal melodies for the verses. I think I read about them, at any rate.)
A Fortune In Lies
Outcry
The Silent Man / Wait For Sleep
Beneath The Surface / Far From Heaven
Lost Not Forgotten
6:00 / About To Crash
The Spirit Carries On
Breaking All Illusions

Trial Of Tears

Title: Re: The Dream Theater Tour Dates & Setlists Thread (UPDATED 01/16)
Post by: ? on January 16, 2012, 10:24:18 AM
A setlist I came up with (should be approx. 2 hours):

Bridges
Presence of Enemies 1
6:00
BMUBMD
Stream of Consciousness
Answer Lies Within (acoustic)
Take Away My Pain (acoustic)
Outcry
Beyond This Life
Misunderstood
Wither
Breaking All Illusions

encore:
Take the Time

It's not my dream setlist or my prediction, (unfortunately I'm not going to see any shows on this tour :sadpanda:) just one that I thought would be a balanced selection of songs with some rarely played tunes.

I bet that either SOC or Vacant will be played off Train of Thought, I remember Jordan said in some interview that he's tired of the over-heavy stuff and those two are the most melodic songs on TOT (along with ES but it was played already).

Keep in mind the setlist Europe got last year. We already had the drum solo, OTBOA and Learning to Live.

'Dream' Setlist (as good as it can get):

Intro
Bridges in the Sky
Build Me Up, Break Me Down
I Walk Beside You
6:00
Afterlife
Surrounded
Beneath the Surface
Far From Heaven
Breaking All Illusions
Stream of Consciousness
Take The Time
Trial of Tears
-------------
Pull Me Under
Metropolis Pt. 1

only this is unrealistic.

Let me try this...

Intro

I walk beside you
Build me up, break me down
Blind faith
Wither
Outcry
The Silent man / Wait for sleep
Beneath the surface / Far from heaven
On the backs of angels
Trial of tears
Home
Breaking all illusions
- - - - -
Pull me under

Still roughly two hours. I don't see On the backs of angels being excluded, it's their hit single from the latest album after all.

All is great now and these new sets are going to rock given the addition of some heavy tunes. I'm really looking forward to this tour! See you soon if you're at any shows!

So there will be some more heavy tunes i guess... we will see in a few days from now... cant wait to see them live on the 1st of feb.

Firstly hey everyone long time lurker first time poster here.

Just wanted to start by saying I've been watching videos on the 'Tube and I really hope they keep Endless Sacrifice and CIAW in the setlist. I'm attending the show at Wembley and as a first timer I cannot wait!

Also I agree with John94, for the people who didn't attend earlier last year they still need MM's solo in!

Lastly I couldn't help but notice this:

2012-01-29 - Arena Hall - Poznań, POL
Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence Release Date 2002 01 29.

It would be a crime against humanity for any songs from SDOIT to not be played in Poland!! And I'm hoping it will be TGP and that they keep it in the setlist too!

I always look at the setlists, however this time I'm determined not to. Wembley will be a surprise - the first time a setlist has been a total surprise for me since the first time I saw them (1993 - Rock City, Nottingham).


Hoping for a similar setlist to the US one, expecting OTBOA to be cycled out, hoping for Beneath the Surface and The Silent Man, and for whatever else they throw at us. As for LNF, the other 3 long songs on ADTOE are, IMO, better, and I'd rather hear them or something older - I suppose The Killing Hand is too much to ask for, but I can dream, can't I!  :metal :metal :metal

Wouldn't want to turn up not knowing, then get a disappointing setlist as it would kind of put a downer on the night for me, even though it shouldn't because it's still DREAM THEATER  :metal

On dt.net there are two stuttgart shows scheduled for feb 13 and feb 15 (differend venues, though). The first one isn't shown on this thread...

Edit: I found out:

"The Stuttgart show has been moved to February 15th, 2012 and will take place at the Hegelsaal. This is located in the same complex as the venue that was previously announced (Liederhalle)."

Still very lame that the website keeps listing the old show as well as the new show in the tour page.  :\

The end of another leg.

I suspect we might see a hybrid setlist for Asia, chosen from the North American and 2nd European leg sets. Perhaps a couple of new additions as well.

The gap is almost as large as the difference between the NA and 2nd Europe legs, so I think we'll see a whole new set of tunes.

I think the Australian tour will tag on the end of the Asian leg, i.e. in mid-May.

South America might actually be sooner than we think, since the shows are bound to have a great attendance even at short notice, so perhaps towards the end of this month/the beginning of April.

I think we'll see some Australia and South America dates in the end of May or June, and then a US run in August and September and then they'll write a new album.

Mh, well, it's 20 years and 11 days after Images And Words was released. Full IAW on the second night? Well, I guess that the upcoming leg will shed some light on this: if they rotate the Images song including something like Take The Time or Another Day, or switch back to Metropolis as encore, than we could say that there's a strong chance of it happening.

They already did that in 2007 for the fifteenth aniversary, but back then the album in its entirety was only played in the european leg, and the US is still waiting for a full IAW show...

Also, just by chance that I end up being right, I suspect this 20th anniversary of I&W to have a great influence on the theme of the tour, while also still supporting ADTOE's release...
To explain my reasoning, I'll just assume you fans can put 2 and 2 together by linking the "I&W = ADTOE" allegations that developed from a few months ago.  ;D

BTW, I find it funny that the tour dates were announced on Friday the 13th.

Well, actually the band already made quite clear (via informal means) that the DVD would be shot in the South American Leg. However, I myself thing that something big may be in store for the second Huntington show, something big enough to be featured extensively on a hypotetical DVD2 of the video release.

+1^ plus the fact that there is no South American leg or Australian leg scheduled for this world tour at the current time. With the N.A. 2nd leg being much earlier in the summer than I originally anticipated, I believe the South American tour will come towards the end of August or into September, which plays into DT's plan of finishing up the world tour in September. There's definitely enough time after July 21st for a break and then another leg of touring for wherever DT decides to go.

As you say, though - informal means! Obstacles arise, plans change, time is in flux and all that - plus, as RMV says, this NA tour is appearing sooner than anticipated and the SA tour still hasn't shown up. My guess, for all it isn't worth, is that logistics have delayed the South American tour a little and they've bumped up the North American one into its place, so they've moved the DVD recording to fit the schedule.

Keep in mind that this is gonna be the first single-venue DVD since they dropped the Evening With format. They're gonna need a few more songs to fill out the DVD to a similar length, and with alternating setlists performed at the same venue, they can seamlessly combine the two presentations into a full-length performance whereby they don't have to miss out any songs, they don't have to flick between venues every few songs to fill the disc, and everything will look beautiful. Not saying plans have changed, but of every possibility, a DVD makes the most sense. Not that I'm hoping they have shifted to New York, particularly - they've done the US before, and I think an SA crowd on a DT DVD would be brilliant - but it'd fit in with the original production timeline.

I really doubt they're gonna do anything Images and Wordsy - now they've got a back catalogue of eleven or so, it's gonna be one album's birthday every year, and they've already done the IAW thing just two tours ago. There's every chance they might do something special that's got nothing to do with IAW or covers, (full performance of ADTOE perhaps?) but if this is a DVD, it'll be the first live recording of a brave new Dream Theater empire - this should be "look how good we are now," not "look how good we were twenty years ago."

From what I am seeing from Mike Portnoy's Tourography, Dream Theater have only played in the Carolina's once, and that was in 2009.
Promoters down there must not like Dream Theater and I suppose the low ticket sales from Progressive Nation didn't help.

I saw them in Asheville in 2009.  It wasn't sold out but there were quite a few there.  You'd think they would draw a lot more people having the concert in the Charlotte or Raleigh-Durham areas though.  They each have close to 2 million people, many times more than the Asheville metro area.

Yeah, if they were to play DPAC in Durham or Ovens Auditorium in Charlotte, they would draw a good crowd. I was at the 2009 show in Asheville and while not a sellout, it was probably 85% full.  I live in Wilmington NC and it looks like another road trip for us. We are thinking Richmond and DC. We like the back to back nights so we get both set lists. We saw the first leg down in Clearwater and Orlando Fla. Least Richmond and DC are much closer to us.

Well, usually Ohio gets two dates per leg, and a few times has gotten three or more so it isn't too weird but does suck for the fans in the other states whose promoters must have not had as good of deals or no deals at all but yet again the only states in the Southeast that ever gotten more than one concert are Georgia, Florida and Virginia.
Florida actually got 3 dates in a row for the first leg of this tour and Georgia got a show during that leg so not much of an issue for me there but I'm glad Virginia got a date this time around since they haven't gotten once since 2010.

You guys just can't tag the band with all the blame. The promoters here in Ohio definitely don't like when DT comes to town, but people show up. Even though they're reluctantly booking DT, it works out for them in the end. I would have been glad just to see one date. That would have been a miracle in of itself.
Title: Re: The Dream Theater Tour Dates & Setlists Thread (UPDATED 01/16)
Post by: Cookstar on April 14, 2012, 07:51:39 PM
I'm not really blaming the band.  I understand there are other factors at work like management, promoters, etc.  NC has nearly 10 million people now.  It seems like someone would realize it's to their advantage financially to bring them here.

I still love the band and I'm going to Richmond to see them.  This thread was just a nice place to vent :)

I'll join in in the disappointment  :tdwn . I'm getting to the 50+ concert mark now and have never been able to see DT because they always play 4 hours away or more at best.

Yes I understand I could make a trip but money is tight this way and that's gas, plus likely a place to stay and ticket costs on the spur of the moment basically. I guess I keep expecting they'll eventually break down and come close but I think this is my cue to give up that hope.

I understand there are a number of factors that go into a tour but come on ONCE in their career here? This band is bigger than that (whether some believe it or not).

I agree. The War Memorial Auditorium would be a great place for them to play. I have seen a couple of shows there and I like that venue very much. Plus, it's only a 3 hour drive for me. I'm glad they are playing Richmond, I can make that drive in 4 hours. Sure does beat Clearwater and Orlando like we did last October. That was a 10 hour drive!

The USA Tour dates being listed here are not the same as on other supposed official Tour lists I have seen, especially for Minneapolis.  On some Tour lists it says MSP will be on the 27th and others it says the 26th.  This also affects other shows including Chicago's date.  So folks, be careful with making solid plans based on these dates as something has to give here.

We'll just have to see what ticketmaster and the venue's websites lists the dates once they're posted. Just check with the promoter and/or venue of the city you plan on attending. They will have the corrected information once it is posted.

Leaving for South Korea late night all ready for the Dream Theater Pacific Rim Tour. I have a new drum solo. All sections of this one are in some form of "5" and it is more like a drum song. It will be so great to see you all there that I have performed for in drum clinics only. This will be a special treat to play with DT for you and to eat all the extra spicy seafood everywhere !!

I forgot: have also been working on new tunes for the US Leg and on hitting the cleanest and hardest I can. On the last tour, I whacked the kicks almost to the point where I'd normally think it isn't "musical," but on the contrary, the sound engineers were saying that the kicks sounded triggered because they emanated more of a broad sound spectrum that cut through. I must say I could really feel the training when I was sore every day for lunch :) I'm interested to see if I gained strength and speed for the stage. This progress thing just never ends.

This.

You have New York City and Boston that are relatively close. To pack up and go to another show.

With the exception of the upcoming leg, I've had to venture out of Ohio to Pittsburgh or Chicago for shows on the past few legs.

I love the Connecticut venue! DT used to play there every tour. I'm not whining. I'm disappointed. The closest show to me is Huntington LI on a Tuesday & Wednesday night. Its a 2 hour+ drive. Not doing that. Next closest is PNC on a Saturday night. 2 1/2 hour drive. Certainly doable, but I probably won't do it.
I would have been happy with another NYC show, so I could have gone into the city on Metro North. That I would have done.
Yup, being in the area I live I am spoiled. I want my local show that's a half hour drive from home. I can bitch about it, because it used to be a mainstay stop every tour, and now its being skipped.

This is an unexpected twist, indeed.... And, I'm not really disappointed. It was quite clear that no big changes would have been made, just like with the second branch of the North/Central American Leg in December compared with the first month of touring.

This, even though I consider playing This Dying Soul instead of  TROAE a little step back in terms of setlist consistency. I definitely think that song kills some of the momentum build with 6:00, BMU and Surrounded. Moreover, it lacks the wonderful TROAE/Octavarium finale!

THIS.

A few friends of mine who are getting into DT are coming with me to several shows on the US Tour, so seeing Rudess and Petrucci shred the hell out of that song should be a nice home run to get these guys into DT more!  :metal

I don't want to kill your legitimate enthusiams, Angry Conservative (I just can't call you RMV, it's not a name you can call a person by!), but some time has passed since the show, and on setlist.fm there's still Root listed before the solo. Do we have another source confirming TDS or is it just that one?

I also live 4 hours from Yokohama so knowing around what time the show will end would be great to know, since I have work the next day.

Yes he has been playing the other Asian shows.  The show will probably end around 10.30 or 11, that's the usual time over in in the UK.

The Yokohama show starts at 5 pm.  Do you still think it would end as late as 10:30?  How long was the actual duration of the show including the set with Andy Mckee?  If it ends as late as you say, I might be spending the night in a train station lol

Oh blimey, well if it starts at 5 it will end earlier.  Normally starts about 7.30 or later over here and finishes at 10.30. Andy Mckee will do about 30 mins to 45 mins and DT will be playing about 2 and a half hours.

Hmmm. Then again, the fact that they were playing Radio City probably clued many fans in to the fact that it would be a special/DVD show anyways.

It is odd that they haven't announced anything, especially considering that (AFAIK) every show is on sale already.

I can't remember how far in advance, but it was unusually far in advance in comparison to when North American dates are announced and tickets go on sale. For some reason I keep thinking it was about 5 months in advance, but I could be wrong. But IIRC that show was announced much earlier than the rest of the leg of the tour.

edit: Did some digging and found out when the Radio City show was first announced - Dec 21, 2005 and 2 days later tickets went on sale. So not quite 3.5 months in advance of the show. The rest of the tour dates were announced about 3 weeks later. It should also be noted that they also highlighted the fact that the Radio City show was going to be filmed for a DVD and CD release when they announced the Radio City date.

Yeah, this is how I remembered it, thanks for confirming.  I can only imagine that the delay may be production related.  Perhaps the band is still figuring out which city works for their budget, as some cities may be prohibitively costly to rent equipment, crew and recording truck.  I dunno.

Jordan said in his vokle chat that they will "change it up" since the last NA leg. You can expect a different base setlist of older tunes than the last NA leg. I would say it will be a combo of some of the 2nd Europe leg songs (Root, 6:00, TDEN, etc) and some newer tunes that Mangini said that he has been working on for this leg.

Not really, they purposedly swapped the encores in Hovet as PMU hadn't been played in Sweden for a long time. Moreover, they made a few adjustments in the setlist rotation which caused the biggest cities (London, Paris, Milano, Madrid) that were touched by the tour to feature setlist A. I'm not 100% sure this was intentional, but if they really are not in the least concerned by who gets what, why would they chose to play the same setlist two nights in a row, and more than once, if not to alter the flow?

I'm really curious as to what Setlist B will be tonight.

Let us hope they didn't drop the rotation as they did in the latest asian Leg... I would be disappointed.

Comparing the setlists between the previous US tour and the current one, I much prefer the ones from the previous tour. The Great Debate is the only real weak point in those sets. Everything else is solid if not awesome. I think 6:00, TDEN, AFIL, Surrounded, WIMY/TTTSTA bring this new setlist down, along with the overplayed TSCO. And This is the Life is my least favorite new song. Everything IMO, of course.
Title: Re: The Dream Theater Tour Dates & Setlists Thread (UPDATED 01/16)
Post by: The Curious Orange on June 26, 2012, 06:35:31 AM
Hmm. I don't really rate The Great Debate, but it was a stand out track live. AFIL is being played faster and heavier on this tour - it really is like a whole new song, and WIMH/TTTSTA is also quite punchy, especially with the new visuals this tour. TSCO is a classic, and could never be overplayed IMHO.

Where the set seems weak is the ADTOE stuff - This is the Life and Lost Not Forgotten just aren't as strong as Beneath the Surface and Outcry.

I hope they do a live album from this tour, but I hope it's from an earlier leg, preferably a night where they played The Silent Man.

Don't think this warrants its own thread, so I'll try asking here:

Does anyone know how different the two shows in NY might be? It would be a huge waste of money if I go twice and the setlists are identical (like they sort of have been so far). On the other hand, I'd never forgive myself if they did something special or they played LTL live.

Elsewhere people have suggested looking at other double shows they've done in the past, but 1) this is their hometown (might be something special) and 2) their setlists post Portnoy have been sort of unchanging.

Since an extra 70$ish is on the line, I've tried tweeting John/Jordan/DTofficial/etc to no avail, so I was wondering if you guys heard anything!
Title: Re: The Dream Theater Tour Dates & Setlists Thread (UPDATED 01/16)
Post by: TAC on July 10, 2012, 08:20:01 PM
Even if the shows are the same, it's worth going twice..as long as there's no extenuating circumstances (wife and kids! :lol)

Since they're doing a two night shoot in Buenos Aires, there's speculation that the NY shows will have varied setlists. That chance would be reason enough to go. You'd get something no other US audience would get.

This may have been said already...

I saw how all of the setlists are basically identical, and it was pissing me off.  Like, Portnoy is gone, so they can't continue to make decent varying setlists?  Then it hit me, maybe it's too hard for Mangini to learn a bunch of new songs, so they had to limit the setlist.  Maybe future tours will be better?

Or maybe they would rather have one really quality show for everyone to enjoy. Without rotating the setlist, they can make sure that the songs they do play are played at a very high level. The only downside to that is that it discourages people from going to multiple shows in the same leg of the tour (as I probably would have done if I knew the setlist would be changing). Also, as you mentioned, Mangini is still new to a lot of the material and it would be pretty rough on him if everyone expected him to learn 50 songs rather than... say 20-25 for the first couple tours.

Read interviews. The band wanted to do a static setlist because they say (and very rightfully) that the show they present is a much better one. It's not because of Mangini, etc. Thing is, yeah Portnoy had the variable setlist thing and all, but the performances and the stage production weren't as tight as they are now.

I am gonna ask in here too instead of starting a new thread. How does the touring cycle look for Dream Theater? Do they do album tours followed by festival tours in the summer, and how often are they on tour? I suppose following A Dramatic Tour of Events we can expect them to take a break for a while? I ask because I just got back into DT and of course missed them when they came here on the European Leg. Take Care!

I most certainly will be seeing them again on this tour. I have decided that I will see them on every single tour from now on until I am physically unable or they retire!

I just did a meet and greet last year for the first time, but I am tempted to do it again, as I would love to have them sign my Images and Words vinyl (2012 re-release) test press that I will be receiving in February (one of only 24 made, most of which went to the band and management).

I absolutely hate it when people do this, and unfortunately I've had this happen to me. I wrote and extensive list of the gear JP used on Dream Theater tours as well as his rig during G3 in 2007 and put it up on the Dream Theater wikia page and then someone just copied it onto the wikipedia site without even so much as a little line saying "this list was originally posted on the Dream Theater wikia page" or something like that.

True, but when that happens they generally close the leg in Spain or Italy or nearby countries. And realistically they won't be touring until after New Year's Day, so this kind of rules out Spain as the homestretch of the EU leg.

Interesting.....wonder if they'll do the first North American run throughout October/November of this year?

I think JP said in an interview that the tour wouldn't start until 2014, so I doubt it.

Correct!

Here's hoping for a Swedish date.

Hope they come to Gothenburg and not Stockholm as always. I don't have any friends who like Dream Theater, so I don't know if it's worth going to Stockholm alone.

I would very much appreciate it if Dream Theater came to Indonesia. We are an extremely dedicated fan base and many of us have not been able to experience Dream Theater live. Also, I have much respect for Mike Portnoy, who is one of my idols and a drum god.

I really wish they come somewhat close to Pisa, where I'll be moving to in a few months. Florence (like they did in 2004) or Pistoia (2002) would be great, but Rome is fine too.  :tup

This is why I love living in a Los Angeles suburb

shows are never more than an hour and a half away (that's with traffic)

Unless they are in Anaheim, which is like 2.5 with bad traffic but the venue is worth it

ALL SHOWS WILL BE 'AN EVENING WITH DREAM THEATER'



DREAM THEATER ANNOUNCE FIRST LEG OF THEIR EUROPEAN TOUR 
IN SUPPORT OF THEIR NEW SELF-TITLED ALBUM 
OUT SEPTEMBER 24, 2013
 
LAUNCHING JANUARY 15 AND WRAPPING FEBRUARY 24, 2014
 
NORTH AMERICAN TOUR PLANNED FOR MARCH 2014
 
DREAM THEATER -- John Petrucci on guitar, John Myung on bass, James LaBrie on vocals, Jordan Rudess on keyboards and continuum, and Mike Mangini on drums -- are one of the biggest touring bands in the world having completed a 14-month tour with 110 shows through 34 different countries from 2011-2012 in support of their eleventh studio album A Dramatic Turn Of Events. Now the Grammy-nominated progressive metal titans have announced the first leg of their European tour launching January 15 in Porto, Portugal in support of their new studio album being released September 24; it marks the first self-titled release in the band's nearly three-decade career.
 
The upcoming tour will encompass 30 cities in 16 countries. The band is also planning to tour North America beginning in March 2014.
 
DREAM THEATER was recorded at Cove City Sound Studios in Glen Cove, New York, with John Petrucci producing and studio luminary Richard Chycki (Aerosmith, Rush) engineering and mixing. The album marks a brilliant new chapter for the always adventurous band, their first to have been written and recorded with drummer Mike Mangini (who joined the band in 2010) wholly integrated into the creative process from the start.


“I see every new album as an opportunity to start over,” says Petrucci. “To either build or improve upon a direction that has been evolving over time or to completely break new ground. This is the first self-titled album of our career and there is nothing I can think of that makes a statement of musical and creative identity stronger than that. We’ve fully explored all of the elements that make us unique, from the epic and intense to the atmospheric and cinematic. We’re incredibly excited about DREAM THEATER and can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”
 
DREAM THEATER is proud to provide VIP packages for all shows on their upcoming tour (full tour itinerary below). VIP packages include premium seats, exclusive meet and greet with the band, personal photo with the band, signed limited edition collection tour poster, special tour gift, and much more. For more information and to purchase VIP packages and get advance tickets, visit the band’s website: http://bit.ly/DTVIPEU.

About DREAM THEATER
 
Progressive metal band Dream Theater formed in 1985 under the name Majesty by John Petrucci, John Myung, and Mike Portnoy. Though a number of lineup changes followed, the three original members remained together, along with James LaBrie and Jordan Rudess, until September 2010, when Mike Portnoy exited the band. In October 2010, Dream Theater held auditions for a new drummer, and added drummer extraordinaire Mike Mangini to its roster.
 
In 2012 the band received its first-ever Grammy nomination for “On The Backs Of Angels” in the Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance category.  The song was the first single from their eleventh studio album A Dramatic Turn Of Events (released September 13, 2011 on Roadrunner Records), which had fourteen top 10 debuts around the world (including the U.S., where it entered at #8 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart).
 
In 2012, DREAM THEATER wrapped up a massive worldwide, headline tour in support of 
A Dramatic Turn of Events and will release a new album in September 2013. To date, the legendary progressive metal masters have sold in excess of ten million records and DVDs worldwide.

Once again i'll see them in Padova (last time was in 2007 for the CiM tour) but this time they'll play in a smaller venue, which anyway has become the main venue for all the artist who come to play in that city.

I may consider to see them at the Wembley Arena, mainly for the venue itself, hoping for a good attendance.

Well that sucks  :-[ The crowd at the Glasgow gig last year was really disappointing though - don't think it being all-seater helped, but it seemed so subdued. I didn't get it, it's Dream Theater FFS, show some excitement and appreciation! No idea if that sort of thing has any impact on where they choose to go on future tours though. Probably not and it was a good turnout, the place seemed pretty full - just no atmosphere from the crowd  >:(

Unlikely I'll be seeing them this tour then. I may be persuaded if the new album is incredible, they play LTL or Metropolis on this leg and/or the support band are someone I really like. Otherwise it's just gonna be too expensive I think  :'(

The last 4 Dream Theater shows I've seen:

2009-10-09 - Manchester - £30
2011-07-23 - Wolverhampton - £34
2012-02-09 - Manchester - £50
2014-02-13 - Manchester - £62

Not sure I'm gonna give them my money this time. I would much rather see a £30-£40 show with a varied setlist than spend £60+ for those large cubes we got last time

Hopefully there will be some rotation so that you won't get the same setlist twice!

It will be cool to see the last show of the leg, but I hope they won't be too exhausted from touring for over a month. On the other hand, the playing will probably be tighter than at the beginning of the tour. Maybe we'll get to witness some end-of-the-tour pranks... :D

Australia? Surely they can't skip us twice in a row??!!!

When they've come to Australia, it's been well into the tour, so nothing they would announce right now. Always watch out for Japan tour dates, because Australian shows are usually just after they swing by Japan (and they won't skip Japan).

Man, ticket prices seem to rise every tour! Pretty sure the first time I saw them they were £25, so more than double that now.

I'll probably still go to the Manchester gig, but I'll be disappointed if ticket prices go up much more and may have to think twice about going - being a poor student and all  :\

I can pretty much say that if the tour is a AEW James will be most certainly torn apart vocally. A schedule so tight took place in 2004, and it really took its toll, as we can see in Budokan.

Has his voice in general not improved since then? And perhaps his general fitness is better?
Title: Re: The Dream Theater Tour Dates & Setlists Thread (UPDATED 01/16)
Post by: wasteland on June 24, 2013, 10:11:03 AM
Yes, but in my experience this improvement was aided by a more human tour scheduling. In ADTOE he reached the top of his game in the middle of each leg, after usually a week of warmup, or a little more. After that, a week and a half long plateau and a smooth decline in the last week. This is what happened the last time judging on bootlegs and concert videos.

I think he might be at the top of his game right now, but I also believe that to keep it that way he needs to start decreasing the amount of performances, or keep the gig density at least as low as it was in the immediate past. More or less what Roger Federer is doing right now with his career of tennis player.

Title: Re: The Dream Theater Tour Dates & Setlists Thread (UPDATED 01/16)
Post by: TheAtliator on June 24, 2013, 10:12:52 AM
In certain aspects of his voice yes, but other aspects no, and others go up and down between legs and tours. 2004 was one of his best years for high clean middle voice, but he had absolutely no distortion. 2012 was one of his best years for distortion, but he still struggled a little with parts like "as a child I thought.." and had to kind of scream it out. But then again his screams were really good in 2012. But then look at summer 2011.. Not very good for him all around. He had trouble hitting notes, could only sometimes create distortion, looks really out of breath. But it looks like he lost weight since then too so who knows.
Title: Re: The Dream Theater Tour Dates & Setlists Thread (UPDATED 01/16)
Post by: wasteland on June 24, 2013, 10:18:45 AM
Yup. Anyway: I trust James. He's an awesome singer and an even greater professionist. He knows what is good for his body, what is good for his voice and what is best for his performance and his contribution to the band's live output. If we have this kind of schedule is that because he agreed to it, so he is positive that he will be able to pull it off at least decently.

So, let's all show Jame some trust, he earned it in the past few tours!  :)

I was thinking... The new album is self-titled, so I'm pretty sure it won't have a storyline (luckily!), but maybe it will flow like SFAM and Octavarium and have a certain continuity? That would explain the inclusion of an intro track and also make a full performance reasonable. JP said the "evening with" format works best when they play some album in full ;)

I know this is all speculation, but it's interesting to think about. I just have to hope the new album will be really good if they play it in full!

I think that this VIP thing is BS.
First of all, it takes all the fun out of anxiously waiting to get the ticket. Then, the ticket prices got really expensive anyway. Based on Apollo prices, a pair of gold VIP tickets would be $300, which neither me nor my father could pay for! Regular crap tickets would cost something like $170!

Hopefully they stop at some GA place around here and I can get there early!

Hey, dudes, we could also have some faith in our man? Long gone are the days where James wouldn't be asked if a tour schedule is asking too much of him, and over the years he's grown to be way more careful with his voice. I can see how he could be a little overconfident and bite a little more than he can swallow, since this is a pretty cool moment for DT and they're all really super psyched to be doing what they're doing, but I can't imagine him saying yes to a whole tour that would totally ruin his voice, as it is already speculated here. You bet your ass this has been discussed at DT camp and that James gave his yes based on how his voice really feels at the moment. I can't see them doing it any differently.

Especially when no one's expecting them to actually do Evening Withs, which they haven't done in a while, but hardcore fans who would go to the show anyway. Literally, the only two reasons why they might be bringing them back is because a) they have cool ideas for the setlist b) they know they can pull it off again. All of them. MP mentioned in a BCSL-ish-era intie the longer shows were taking a toll on the entire band. They're being brought back for a reason and now we just gotta stand by and watch them either make it work or pull through them. Hopefully the former.

Exactly. As I said in the other thread, I'm the first to harbour some doubts and I'm not sure he will be able to live up to the standard he set on the ADTOE tour with such a tight schedule of AEW, but he's the man. He's the one who managed to recover from a nearly hopeless condition to reach a silver age at the age (no pun intended) of 50. Let's not forget this. He knows who he is, he knows what he has to do.

If he agreed to have such a schedule it means that he approved it. The days where the needs of one member were overshadowed by the others' or just plainly ignored are over, if they ever existed.

Another thing to keep in mind, with a back catalogue as vast and diverse as DT's, adding an hour or so of extra music doesn't necessarily mean an hour of rigorous singing from JLB. Adding back uncut versions of epics instead of medley's, acoustic sets, instrumental breaks, etc. all help minimize the strain on his voice while still extending the set.

I still haven't seen any solid confirmation on Evening With being added though. Does anyone have a link?

We have a couple of confirmations from ticket vendors, also a confirmation from the Polish promoter (we found it out through the Symphonic Theater of Dreams dudes) and the ex-administrator of the Italian fanclub. I think bosk also confirmed this.

I just really hope that they continue the Evening Withs to the US tour. I've never got to see songs like 8VM, TCOT, or ACOS since they haven't done the Evening With format since I became a fan in 2008.

I have to admit that I'm a little worried, because I'm going to see the last European show, but I'm confident that James and the whole band will be able to pull it off, because (as said) they've agreed on the schedule, so they know they can give us a quality show.

I kind of guess the reason why they've stopped playing GA/standing venues and gone for all seaters is exactly so they can start charging silly money for VIP packages. The whole thing is just a cash-grab IMO. I'm a huge fan of GA gigs - the people who get there early and queue all day get to the front - simple and fair.

Well you if check out the dates on their site you will see that quite a lot of them is standing venues. It seems that is only the UK dates that are all seater's. Today bands like DT make their living by touring not by record sales or airplay. So they can cash-grab all they want for all I care

Hopefully they come to Connecticut again on the American Leg. They haven't been in this state since PN09 and the long car rides aren't pleasant.


This is why I love living in a Los Angeles suburb

shows are never more than an hour and a half away (that's with traffic)

Unless they are in Anaheim, which is like 2.5 with bad traffic but the venue is worth it

 :biggrin:
Ahhh the good ol days... I grew up in N. Hollywood/Burbank in the 70's 80,s and into the 90's and there were just tons of concerts to choose from!

Now I live kind of in the sticks in Denmark and although I'm glad DT is at least making an appearance here, I friggen wish they'd play the mainland and not always in Copenhagen (which is a pain to get to and expensive) when we have a few really good places they could play much closer to me... Oh well, at least Steven Wilson is playing a half hour's drive from my house in Nov. (and I'm sure I'll make the trip to Copenhagen in feb. to see DT as well  ;)...)

Anyway, indeed those shows were 2 hours and 20-40 minutes with no opening act. They're not quite the length of the old AEW shows, but I could see them doing shows this length since they did them just fine in SA.

Dont know if anyone can explain something about the 3 UK shows...

How comes Manchester doors open at 7:00, London at 7:30 and Wolverhampton at 8:00? :/ Is it due to the decrease in size of the venues (Wolves Civic seats less than Wembley for example and therefore less people to get in - less time needed to get show going).

Just curious because if doors open at 8 then they will probably not start til 8:30/9ish. Unless the curfew is extended for that venue...

Well, at first there was no Swedish date, just a gap between the Finnish date and the Danish date. Then a gig in Stockholm was added (for the 22:th) but it was pulled in a matter of hours I think. Haven't seen any mention of it since.

So DT has played Denver (and even Loveland and/or Colorado Springs, which are not very far from Denver) on every tour *except* for the last one.  I've been at most of the Denver shows since the I&W tour - so I was depressed when they didn't come through Colorado last time. 

Not sure if there were other "outlying" locations that suffered a similar fate last time out or if Denver was an anomaly...

So here's to hoping that they don't skip us Rocky Mountain folks again *this* time - that would SUCK.

Nothing that I ever heard of - seems like they've always played to full houses in Denver on the last few tours.  Suppose it could have been a problem with a promoter or something along those lines... what ever the issue, I hope it's been resolved!

I will probably go to Copenhagen if they don't come to Sweden. It's not that much further away than Stockholm anyway.
Maybe there are some details that just need to get worked out. It would seem strange if they didn't have a date in Sweden considering there are three days off between DK and Finland and unless they sail directly from Copenhagen or something (if there's even a route for that) they need to cross Sweden to get there.

Seems like it would almost be an insult to not play in Sweden  considering how "poppet" Dk seemingly is compared to Sweden (at least on the surface) who have a festival like Sweden Rock where bands show up that I could only dream about seeing in Denmark, but that's coming from a foreigner who grew up on album rock radio and prog in the US, and there may be an underground here that I'm unaware of but I think radio pretty much sucks here (thank god for net radio)... I was actually surprised at how many there were at the ADTOE show in Copenhagen (near capacity) but there were a number of Swedes in the crowd as well ;).

Anyway, I digress... Hopefully the show will pop up in Sweden again but if not hope you can make it to DK for the show :).

If they come back to Toronto at some point, I may have to attend. I saw them during the Chaos In Motion Tour, and it was my first time going to a show. It was my true awakening as a fan, being able to witness the brilliance up close and take in that live sound.

Personally, I really like the name "Along for the Ride". I think we may learn to appreciate it more once we've heard the song and the album. What I'm looking forward to is the possibility of dark/cosmic imagery and lighting in the background while they're playing the new album live. That would be awesome.

No, you're probably right and my comment was perhaps a little unfair. St David's Hall would be about the right size but maybe not ideally suited to a heavy rock gig. They could have done the Newport Centre, though, which they did 3 tours ago, when James made his "It's been much too long, we must not let it happen again" comment. Just a crowd-pleasing thing to say that he didn't necessarily mean, then. Not unusual for a front man to do that kind of thing, but I wish they wouldn't as it just makes them look insincere later.

I´m sure they´ll come to Rio at some point in 2014 - they´vee done so since the Octavarium Tour - but it will be cool to see the new phase of the band and also get to know a bit of Spain. this will be the 04th continent where I see the band. these are the shows I´ve seen so far:

1999 - São Paulo, FII Tour;
2006 - Tokyo, Octavarium Tour;
2008 - Rio, SysChaos Tour;
2009 - Perth, BCSL Tour;
2010 - Rio, BCSL Tour;

Yes it was! I remember queuing outside and watching all the families going for their early evening swim! Bizarre. They also use it for the Welsh Open snooker. It was a very good gig though, and relatively intimate for a DT show in recent times.

 The weirdest one for me so far was going from Perth to Tokyo to see DT. On the second night in Japan they did the "Made in Japan" cover, which was great to watch. And this time I chose Pamplona as the place to buy the meet and greet ticket because I think there'll be less people in the queue.

Finally some good news! And it's the day after the Copenhagen show too. So it seems there's still room for Sweden to get a concert between the Norway and Finland shows.  :tup

The Swedish date is also up. February 22 (Annexet, Stockholm).

Can't wait to see an "Evening With" show. I've never had the experience.

After watching Luna Park in a movie theater, I came to appreciate that the setlist was almost as long as some Evening With shows.   We really got our moneys worth on the ADTOE tour.   So if you saw them last tour, the upcoming Evening Withs might actually be comparable.  Although some cities may be lucky enough to get a three hour setlist.  fingers crossed.

I can't tell you much about the NA tour dates.....but what I can tell you with 100% certainty backed by a Lords of London Insurance Policy is that there will NOT be a show played in St. Louis, Missouri. You can take that to the bank.

So Chicago, Kansas City, Milwaukee.....I'll see one, or heck....maybe all three of you in 2014.

They haven't played there since some drunken idiot fell onto someone from the balcony trying to catch a drumhead and then ran off.

John Petrucci in a recent loudwire.com interview (http://loudwire.com/dream-theater-john-petrucci-new-dvd-upcoming-tour/), regarding the upcoming tour:

Quote
John, you’re in the midst of planning the world tour that kicks off this coming January. How is it coming so far?

Really well. Were calling it “An Evening with Dream Theater” and it will be two full sets with an intermission. Just a ton of music. Our goal is to make it the best Dream Theater live experience ever and when you enter the venue, our plan is to just take you into our world. In addition to the music, there will be a complex video and lighting component that really will create this kind of parallel universe where we live. There will be many musical surprises. The goal is always to raise the bar from the previous tour but this time I think were really going little bit crazy. I have to add to that it’s been extra exciting for our drummer Mike Mangini because there’s plenty of music in our back catalog that he’s never played before so for him a lot of this really is going to be a new experience. But I promise you this will be unlike any other Dream Theater show you’ve ever seen or experienced and it’s going to be very special.

Nah, that would be a bit underwhelming, if only because it wouldn't be a surprise at all! I am seriously hoping for a few of the lesser known (to the wider audiene) songs to take one or two slots somewhere in the set, to showcase the forgotten side of the Dream. You know, songs like Eve, Mike Thinks He's Dee Dee Ramone Introducing a Song Song, or Space-Dye Vest!

....and once they are confirmed we will release an announcement confirming the confirmation that will allow us to announce we can release an announcement that will detail the release date in which we will announce our upcoming tour dates.

This is why you are angry.

Hopefully the shows are well attended across the country. Profitability and success would mean they could do it again in the
future.

Wait...what?  ???  You are aware that they have toured many, many times before, right?

And see here I thought I was being 'funny' and it must have come off as 'angry'. It's no wonder I was nominated for most angry because generally I try to do my best to inject some humor into the mix and it must end up looking like anger. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr I'm angry man Miller Grrrrrrrrrr

Guess I'll just be that angry guy.

Maybe he emtee was speaking 'Evening With' format? If it's successful this tour then they'd just stick with it rather than have supporting acts to draw in folks?

Certainly. It's been awhile since an evening with format though. If it goes well they will feel confident about doing it again.
If not they will probably opt for an opener or two than can help fill the seats.

Hey, look, all I know is, when DT Marketing sends me an email saying to post something, I post it when they tell me to.  There usually isn't much more of an explanation other than the date and time to post it.  I am but a lowly minion.  A mere cog in the machine.  :lol

Sydney and their pathetic turnouts are reducing the attractiveness of touring Australia but a few acts have figured out what to do - concentrate on Melbourne and (for wolfking) Brisbane.   Hell - Steel panther can pack in 7,500 down here no probs (and the other night packed out Myer Music Bowl on the same night as Bon Jovi had 45,000 at Docklands).

Yea but after being a DIE HARD Styx fan for 10 years, they finally decided to do a tour where they brought out like 3 songs they'd never played live before in their career, and like 6 more that they hadn't done since the late 70's or 80's, and that was the one time they didn't come to the West Coast at all. I was NOT a happy kid at that time. I'm glad you guys say there's no chance of DT doing that, I would agree!

Well it looks like they are in Canada before heading to going to California (with an aching in their hearts), so in theory San Fran would be before LA. So maybe the 17th or the 18th.

"Dates Scheduled in other countries"

Mar 27th - Tower Theatre, Upper Darby PA
April 8th - Burnsville (already mentioned)
April 9th - Uptown Theatre, Kansas City MO
April 19th - Orpheum (already mentioned)

Uh oh... With my luck they will play NY on March 24 which is my daughter's 4th birthday.  So I might be traveling to PA to see them or somewhere else close.

dunno.  Massey Hall is the same indoor venue they've been playing here since ToT.  It's a perfect concert hall... the acoustics and atmosphere are perfect; but a drag that it's only a 2k or so seating capacity.  Problem around here is that there aren't any bigger indoor venues suited for concerts, until you get to the Air Canada Centre (our NHL/NBA arena) .. and there's not enough demand for them to pay for that kind of venue.

I like it better when they tour in the summertime here, as there is a perfect outdoor venue with 7k + grass seating.  But that ain't gonna work in March.

They're certainly not playing smaller venues in Europe. It'll be interesting to see where they play in NYC.

They for sure are playing smaller here in Minnesota. The Burnsville Performing Center is not usually a concert venue. It has about a 1,000 seats less than where the usually play. Also, my first reaction was: where the hell is that? :lol

As for songs they've never played before, he was referencing songs not from the new album, and unless I am mistaken, the only songs they've never played before are Space Dye Vest, The Shattered Fortress and The Best of Times, right?  I mean, he could be referring to non-album songs like Raw Dog or several of the FII demo songs, but I doubt it.

Well, other than the new album, of course, that only leaves Space Dye Vest, The Shattered Fortress, and The Best of Times, right? I'm thinking the only possible choice is SDV, and maybe TSF.

True, but all of the FII demos (all 5 of them) have been played live before. The only B-side that hasn't been played live is "Don't Look Past Me", which would KILL live but I doubt JLB has the range for it now...unless he's been exercising his voice more. It COULD work...

That really only leaves "The Best Of Times", "The Shattered Fortress", "Raw Dog" and "Space-Dye Vest" as every other studio album song has been played live up to ADTOE. So with only 5 studio songs never before played live, how many of them could they actually pull out and do justice to? Hopefully they're referring to SDV and TSF, but it would be a BIT of a let down if they said "songs we've never played" and only mean 2.

I really thought they would never upgrade from the National Auditorium, which holds 9k people (which is a fairly good number, by DT's standards). This is probably going to be their biggest concert from the leg.

The problem is the way it's talked about. It says the tour will wrap up in Guadalajara. There is no inkling that there will be more dates.

Okay, I suck.  I went to the official site and clicked on Tour for the latest tour info, and all it had was the dates.  I couldn't even find the press release you guys were apparently reading.  Yeah, it's on the main page, but I always ignore the main page and just go to the Tour page for Tour info.  You'd think it would be there, too.

It does say that the tour finishes in Guadalajara, so maybe the next leg's in the fall, as some have speculated.

It would be cool if they announced an Ottawa date. There's clearly a gap in between Montreal on March 21st and the next show four days later. I don't want to have to travel 2-3 hours to Montreal or 5 hours to Toronto for a DT show if I don't have to. But If I have to, I fucking will!

DT pls to come to Florida. Seriously, I'll be super disappointed if these turn out to be all the dates. There is no way I could make any of these. There isn't one within 1000 miles of where I live, in Florida. Even Atlanta, I might make the trek if it were a weekend night. But really there should be at least one Florida date. There's no way that there's no market for it.

They'll probably do a second leg, there are way too much places to cover and it's unlikely to cover most of them in one run.
That being said, I do feel there are still some dates that are gonna be announced soon.

Their PR department sucks.  Or their webmaster, or somebody.  It says "All Dates".  When you click on "All Dates", you go to the Tour page, where it lists "All Dates".  Except they're obviously adding dates as they get confirmed, etc.

Would it kill them to just mention somewhere "More dates to be announced"?

Well, I don't know what the hell was happened but DT hasn't came to Turkey for 5 years. It's just depressing.

The organizing people who were responsible bringing them and keeping in touch for future shows quit the organization scene for personal reasons, as far as I know. Nobody has been interested to bring them. It's not that they don't want to come or anything.

Based on the past tours, they will probably be a late summer/fall tour.  They normally hit some southeast cities and of course Texas.  Being as they are bit more popular now, they may hit a city in Tennessee.  I can only hope.  If not Atlanta will surely be on the next list.

I'm extremely disappointed by the fact that they left out the South once again for their Evening with...shows. They don't seem to want to ever take their Evening with... shows down here. Why? I live in South Florida and long distance travel is simply not an option...and neither is paying lots of money to see them when they do their afterthought summer festival 70-80 minute shows, er, ah teases. At this point in their career, and with all of the accolades they've received over the last two albums, they DO have a say as to where they will play. If the can play three frickin' shows in Mexico, they can do a few in the South. I feel like they gave all of us in the South coals for Christmas. Thanks for the love DT.

Boston is too far and we'd have to drive to get there. My dad certainly does not want to drive 130 miles at midnight on a Wednesday.
It'd be nice if they came back to a CT theater like the Oakdale, but that's clearly not gonna happen...

Damn you all!  Seriously, enjoy the shows.  The southeast and parts of the southwest may get some shows later in 2014.  Of course by then they will probably not have the 'Evening with' format.

Found it interesting that they left off Cincinnati and Cleveland, especially being so close to the other northern cities on the list.

It'd be nice if they came back to a CT theater like the Oakdale, but that's clearly not gonna happen...
Oh well.

The Oakdale is the best venue I've ever seen a concert at. It's my favorite. I've seen DT there four or five times, but they haven't been back since the Chaos in Motion tour. I love DT and all, but to go see them in NY turns into a really expensive day. Way more than I'm willing to spend to go see a concert. The trip costs more than the tickets do.

CT is such a shitty place for bands that are in the middle, popularity wise. There are Toad's Place and The Webster, but those are only good if you don't plan on attracting more than 200 people. The Meadows holds 25,000 when they really cram people in there. DT played there with Yes, but it was during the winter months when they had the lawn closed off. Even then, it still holds 9,000 or so (I believe). There is the stadium that Uconn plays in, but that's ridiculously huge, I saw The Police there. The Oakdale seems to be the only venue for in between bands. Sure DT never sold it out, but they'd still get close to 3000 fans in there. That venue hasn't been doing much of anything lately. The best act (subjective) to come through there in the last year was Steel Panther, and they played in the arena, not the main stage.

Got my tickets for LA Orpheum and Riverside. Again, it's kinda confusing the way it gives you seats, I'd suggest trying a couple different times to see if it gives a different row. And it's also crappy that it said the presale was tomorrow, and then it went on sale today without any notice.

Anyway I'm gonna see AN EVENING WITH DREAM THEATER TWICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

anyone familiar with this program DT is using to sell tickets through their website? was looking at Philly dates which aren't on presale or anything on live nation yet, but you can buy tickets on DTs site.  the seat it showed me was pretty average so i might just wait, i probably should have been up early for it.  anyone else try and buy that way?

Yeah, I got 20th row center aisle through DT.net. That was good enough for me.

Damn!  I was out all day today, and now the dt.net available tickets for Toronto are gone.  Don't really feel like shelling out $190 or $300 for VIP.  Don't think I like DT that much.

Last time I saw them at Massey, I ended up with row G for either general sale, or Live Nation presale.  I can live with that.

Right there with you.  Although, traveling to Red Bank on a Monday is gonna suck.  But, here I am complaining about getting to a show in my own state when other people are bitching about not having anything within 500 miles of where they live.  So, I guess I'll shut up now.

How bad could the traffic be there?
Coming from Morris County after work straight down 287 to the Parkway or taking 78 to the Parkway doesn't lend itself to a fun time on the road.  If I go by myself (and wife decides to stay home), I can bail a little early and get a jump on rush hour.

Anyone ever been to the Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC before? thinkin about buying floor tickets..

Yes...I saw Iron Maiden there when Bruce first rejoined the band.  If you don't mind standing in a packed crowd (which I do) then you should be fine. It's a pretty big place. Ironically enough when I saw IM there, Mike Portnoy walked right by me.
Was that the Ed Hunter tour w/ Clutch opening?  I was there, too.

It's definitely a cool place to see a show.  However, the idea of standing for 2.5+ hours for an "Evening w/DT" doesn't really excite me.  Damn, I'm getting old!  Standing during the Roseland Scenes show was pretty brutal by the end.

crowdsurge sucks. here's a tip that i discovered, and what was actually the root of my problem...make sure each field says OKAY as you exit it. don't leave any dashes in your phone number. make sure your pw has at least one numeral and one capital.  if you don't, when you hit SIGN UP nothing happens. and you're left wondering wtf.

i finally got through all of it, had two row G center seats for Boston, and crowdsurge tells me i already have an account. i had to get a pw reset mail, re-sign in...and then the timer hit 0 and i lost the seats. ended up getting row I in the same section, so still pretty sweet. Looking forward to the lovely Opera House, a nice change from that dump we call the Orpheum.

Post by: Grizz on December 18, 2013, 05:46:30 PM
Probably doing the NY show. What sucks about that is that I want to be close to the stage, but I'm short and my dad hates standing room.
Boston is too far and we'd have to drive to get there. My dad certainly does not want to drive 130 miles at midnight on a Wednesday.
It'd be nice if they came back to a CT theater like the Oakdale, but that's clearly not gonna happen...
Oh well.

The Oakdale is the best venue I've ever seen a concert at. It's my favorite. I've seen DT there four or five times, but they haven't been back since the Chaos in Motion tour. I love DT and all, but to go see them in NY turns into a really expensive day. Way more than I'm willing to spend to go see a concert. The trip costs more than the tickets do.

CT is such a shitty place for bands that are in the middle, popularity wise. There are Toad's Place and The Webster, but those are only good if you don't plan on attracting more than 200 people. The Meadows holds 25,000 when they really cram people in there. DT played there with Yes, but it was during the winter months when they had the lawn closed off. Even then, it still holds 9,000 or so (I believe). There is the stadium that Uconn plays in, but that's ridiculously huge, I saw The Police there. The Oakdale seems to be the only venue for in between bands. Sure DT never sold it out, but they'd still get close to 3000 fans in there. That venue hasn't been doing much of anything lately. The best act (subjective) to come through there in the last year was Steel Panther, and they played in the arena, not the main stage.
They also came for PN09. The Oakdale isn't intended to be much of a music theater, more of a theater theater.

I'd completely forgotten that they only play South of Denver if they have an opening act. Since I don't care enough to spend any more than the ticket cost to see them, I guess there's no DT for me for a while. I'll just wait for the DVD, which will be beat for beat identical to the show anyway.

At least I'm getting to see TA a couple of times.

I have work to do though cause her heart is still set on the Grand Canyon and as soon as I can convince her that it's just a glorified hole in the ground which does great as a wallpaper but loses it's appeal about 20 minutes into actually being there then I could sell her NY or Chicago, hopefully it won't be too late to get tickets to these shows.

Tell her to hold off until you can do the Grand Canyon right. I'd only want to experience it floating down the Colorado river during the day and tripping balls on the banks at night. Seeing it from above sounds more like a 2 hour detour than an actual destination.

As for NYC vs Chicago, I've never been to Chicago, but NYC is definitely something worth seeing/doing once. It's pricey, but it really is a whole different sort of world.

So the CA shows went on sale on DT's website yesterday before the Live Nation presales (LA was today and Riverside is in January), but it almost seems like not all the tickets were even on sale from DT's website.. Like some seats are being saved for those "pre"sales... Could that happen, or is there no way?

I ordered mine yesterday from DT.net and closest I could get was 7th row. Now someone just said they got first row today from the LN pre-sale, unless I read that wrong.

For any concert the venue gets blocked out. So yes, DT will get a block to sell. LN will get a block. American Express often takes a block. Various entities that you've never heard of will get a block. A huge block never goes on sell at all to be held back for VIP fucktards. Tis the nature of the concert industry nowadays.

And in all fairness, never complain about 7th row seats.

That's really freakin stupid. They should at least be clear about which seats go where.

That way it's fair game, and whoever wants to spend the money and effort to get them the second they go on sale, at least knows how to do so.

Obviously I am happy that isn't the case anymore cause I would not do that but I got great seats for every show.

Hell, you didn't always even get good seats. I camped out for the Somewhere in Time tour and got hosed. Day after Christmas, too. Cold as all getout.

As for the fairness aspect, I just don't think willingness to spend more money equates fair. Tiered ticket pricing was a bad development, IMO, and I'm not crazy about bronze/silver/gold packages, either. Fanclub memberships are a scam. Presales are a pointless. The only good thing here is that we're talking about a concert with rather limited appeal. At least the scalpers aren't in play.

You can also get better seats by accidentally getting crashed into by a penniless baked kid on a skateboard in the parking lot of the show, then complain that you missed the first two and a half acts that you didn't give a flying f about in the first place. That's how you can get unsold VIP seats next to the soundboard just behind the front-center section in the Oakdale.
Or go to a standing GA show, and stand at the edge of elevated area behind the pit. It's always fun to look down upon moshers in an un-air-conditioned venue.

A consequence of the evening with format. They only play down South as part of a package deal or with other bands opening. My guess is that later on in 2014 they'll start a second leg with a couple of bands that nobody cares about and then play Texas, Arizona, Florida, etc.

So it looks like I'll be hitting both the NY and NJ shows.  The NJ show is a definite.  My friend will most likely get on the guest list for the NY show through his company. If he can't swing that, and finances are in order, I'll still hit the NY show.
What NJ show?

It looks like it's back.

That's tacked onto the end of the tour (back from Mexico). In the past they've treated Arizona and Texas the same way, so I guess there's a possibility they make it here after all. It'd be unusual, but perhaps they're commanding more interest now.

If I'm not wrong, this is the first time in quite awhile (other than the Chaos in Motion/Octavarium tours which were very close to the album release) that the first European leg does not greatly precede the album release (usually resulting in only the "single" off of the album being played on that leg).

Because of this, how many of us believe that the sets will largely stay the same between the European and North American legs (minus a couple songs here and there that they either rotate or take out of the set for various reasons)?

Yes! The only exception for me would be that they play either LNF or TITL since they were never played in Canada, except maybe one festival date in Quebec. I would be happy with ANY setlist though, since this is my first time.

I see that DT is doing 4 nights in a row before hitting Mexico.  That must take a lot of stamina especially being the 'evening with' format.   Would be nice if they hit Texas, Florida, Atlanta and then Ohio after the Mexico trip.  Of course they will probably finish with Mexico and then the south and midwest will get gigs in the fall.

If they go that route, hope they are 'evening with' format.

I hate to say it, but I'm disappointed with it personally. Nothing at all from IaW (my #3 album), nothing at all from SDOIT (my #1 album), only 1 song even from my top 20 (ToT), and 4 of my bottom 10 songs. And then they go and play TSF instead of what could have been The Glass Prison. The SFAM chunk and ToT are definitely the saving graces for me.
For a band with a discography with such a high percentage of songs I love, there's a lot there I don't really care for. :dunno:

We're in a thread that mentions spoilers. No need to make the text small!

Even excluding the fact it includes every one of my most hated songs from Awake (plus The Mirror :metal), the rest of the setlist largely doesn't do it for me either, aside from anything from SFAM being welcome. Nothing that I'd consider a must see, aside from ToT, which I would be thrilled to see live. It's not that I dislike any of the rest of the songs, but they're mostly not really favourites either.
Hopefully there's a bit of rotation in the next setlists that I enjoy more. :)

Post by: The Letter M on January 15, 2014, 10:02:26 PM
It's a ballsy move, this set list, especially considering they're only representing half of the albums in their discography. This is about as ballsy as Rush's set list on the Clockwork Angels Tour!!!

I could have done without OTBOA and BAI - maybe one OR the other, but NOT both.

I like the second half of Awake - this line-up hasn't played ANY of those songs, so that's a plus, and SDV is a world-premier, as was TSF earlier in the show. And I think, without looking up, that the other Awake tunes are back from long breaks of not being played.

The SFAM picks are genius, all being songs that were NOT played last tour. Between last tour and this, all that this line-up hasn't played would be "Beyond This Life", "Through Her Eyes", "Home", and "One Last Time".

I love that TOT returns after a decade in full form! My ONLY gripe about THIS show's set (that is, if they decide to rotate new songs) is the exclusion of "The Bigger Picture", "Behind The Veil" and "Surrender To Reason". Arguably three of the better tunes on the album, but I can see why they would emit them due to time. There was NO way they'd NOT play TEI, AFTR, EM or TLG. A real shame, though, but I hope they rotate those songs for the others.

I agree with Marc that the setlist was really ballsy - I knew the band was aware of the Awake/SFAM anniversaries and was probably going to do something for one of them, but I never expected half the setlist to be devoted to the two albums.  The picks were pretty great (except for Lifting Shadows, which is a dud, but not all DT fans agree with me about that).

I'm also bummed TSF made it into the set in lieu of TGP, which I really want to see live.  I don't like TSF much, but I understand why it's being played, and I suppose it'll be a suitably fun live song.  The rest of the first set is pretty great -- Trial of Tears and Breaking All Illusions?  Who could ask for more?

All in all I'm really excited for my show in April -- the setlist has a lot of great tunes and deep cuts, and I haven't heard the overwhelming majority of the set live yet.

Post by: Laughingplace56 on January 15, 2014, 10:26:19 PM
If it were me, and we were keeping the same songs minus one to include more of DT12, I would've done this:

False Awakening Suite
The Enemy Inside
The Looking Glass
On the Backs of Angels
Enigma Machine w/ drum solo
The Bigger Picture
Mirror
Lie
Lifting Shadows Off A Dream
Scarred
Space Dye Vest

The Shattered Fortress
Behind the Veil
Trial of Tears
Surrender to Reason
Along For the Ride
Illumination Theory

Overture 1928
Strange Deja Vu
The Dance Of Eternity
Finally Free

Taking out BAI frees up about 13 min, which is enough for TBP/BTV, then they can just add another 7 for StR.
Also moved around a few songs where i feel they'd be a little more balanced in the set. It REALLY needs more albums to even it out more so that it's not an onslaught of 3 albums, 2 songs from their last tour and ToT.

I'm also bummed TSF made it into the set in lieu of TGP, which I really want to see live. 
THIS. I get they wanted to play songs never played before, and TSF is gonna be fun as hell live, but i think every DT fan (at least a huge majority) would rather TGP>TSF.

The Shattered Fortress is finally getting played. That's awesome.

And Space-Dye Vest... Damn! I'm starting to wonder if them having not played it their entire career wasn't because of Moore, but because MP didn't want to play it.

And the encore.... Just.... Yeah, I'm gonna cry pretty hard if they change the encore for the North American leg.

Post by: The Letter M on January 15, 2014, 11:08:05 PM
Also, I have to say it was smart putting both SFAM instrumentals in the encore - it gives a lot of breathing space for JLB at the end of a long show, especially after the 2nd half of Awake and "Illumination Theory" (but mostly the Awake stuff, being older and probably harder on his vocal range).

And not counting FAS, we've got 3 instrumentals in the whole show. That must be a record, eh?

Now, the bigger question is...will the show in Boston be the same set list, meaning, the Berklee World Strings and the Berklee Concert Choir would be performing the Awake and SFAM tunes, as well as "Illumination Theory"? If so, that'd be a neat way of celebrating both anniversaries...not that already having these 9 new-to-this-line-up tracks played live isn't already a treat.

Between this tour and last tour, we'll have had 7/8 of IAW, 8/11 of Awake, and 7/11 of SFAM. That's pretty impressive considering this is only this line-up's second tour.

Granted, we're still pretty short on the TOT, 8VM, and SC tunes, but considering they are more recent albums, I'm okay with this. I would have liked another WDADU song since they've only played 2/8 from there, and more FII since "Trial Of Tears" is only the 2nd song this line-up has played.

I guess we'll find out over the next two or three shows whether or not they'll rotate for this leg of the tour, and we'll have to wait til the end of March to see if they change anything up for the NA leg.

If they DO change anything, I hope there's some GOOD RECORDINGS from this leg to put on a later live release, a la "Happy Holidays 2013".

-Marc.

Considering it's a special show, i'd imagine it'd be slightly different in the second set to better utilize the choir and orchestra.

I say by the time the tour's completely over, they'll have plays all of I&W/Awake/SFAM/ADToE(already have)/DT12(obviously). That's 5/12 albums for 2 tour cycles with this line up. Not bad :p
I also expect some songs from SDOIT,ToT, 8VM and SC that weren't played last tour cycle, like TGP, Blind Faith, ITNOG, TDS, Panic Attack, Sacrificed Sons, Constant Motion, ITPOE pt. 1.
I also expect at least one other epic to be played at some point along the tour at least once. Maybe ACOS.

From a neutral point of view, the setlist is pretty interesting. A couple of songs they have never played live before, and a few songs they haven't played in a lot of years. Yeah sure, they could have added a song from I&W and one from 6DOIT, but other than that it's a pretty interesting setlist.

Someone at metalsetlists.com (http://www.metalsetlists.com/showpost.php?p=554419&postcount=14) said he had read an intie where Jordan said there'll be no alternate setlists on this tour. We'll see whether that's true after tonight's concert, but I hope Helsinki will get this setlist.

Yeah not sure how much rotation there will actually be this tour. I can see them switching it up a little bit between legs, but maybe not that much between shows.

I am shocked that TBP was not played. In a pre release interview JP called it the "centerpiece" of the album. I guess all he meant was that it was placed in the middle...

Maybe just with some of the new CD tracks.  I could also see them alternating between the first half of Awake and the second half. There's no way AMBI doesn't get a lot of play this tour.

I popped the tracks into a playlist and it came to 2.6 hours including FAS. That didn't include the drum solo or breaks so I'm guessing it comes out to 3 hours.

I wouldn't fret about The Bigger Picture, Behind the Veil, and Surrender to Reason not being played.  IIRC, several songs from ADTOE (This Is the Life and Lost Not Forgotten) weren't played until later on during that tour, so those three songs from DT12 will likely get their time in the set lists.  Just later rather than now.

my thoughts:
absolutely thrilled with the awake and sfam anniversaries: scarred and finally free are two of my favorite tracks so I'm stoked, and space dye vest is awesome due to its history with the band.  lsoad is cool but not necessary for me, i could go with a different track in that spot.
I'm happy to see bai again, but i could go without otboa.  i get why its there due to being grammy nominated, but having seen it both legs of adtoe tour i could have passed on it, compared to bai which sf only got second leg.  its also just not my favorite adtoe song
tsf is awesome and I'm glad to see it, and tot is cool but not one of my favorites, id rather have a different mini epic like itnog, but its ok.
I'm very happy with the DT12 song choices, and though I'm bummed no str, theres no one DT12 song id give up for its place (or that would make sense to give up).  I'm not that into tbp or btv, so I'm ok with that.

Overall I'm thrilled with this setlist and i hope it stays the same for the US leg, or if it does change i hope only my lesser tracks change  ;D
considering i've only seen two out of 18 of these songs live, not too shabby  :metal :metal

The tracks come to 2hrs 33mins in total studio time, add I'd say ten minutes to that total for extensions and JLB talking to the crowd, and 15 minutes intermission = 2 hours 58 mins.

I hate to say it, but I'm disappointed with it personally. Nothing at all from IaW (my #3 album), nothing at all from SDOIT (my #1 album), only 1 song even from my top 20 (ToT), and 4 of my bottom 10 songs. And then they go and play TSF instead of what could have been The Glass Prison. The SFAM chunk and ToT are definitely the saving graces for me.
For a band with a discography with such a high percentage of songs I love, there's a lot there I don't really care for. :dunno:

With you totally on that bud. VERY disappointed with that set list apart from its finally nice to see "SDV" live purely for the novelty factor rather than the actual song itself. Still at least the "Encore" is smoking hot and very welcome.

And the encore.... Just.... Yeah, I'm gonna cry pretty hard if they change the encore for the North American leg.
Actually, I wouldn't mind if they put the SFAM anniv. spot where Awake is and add in Home, then put Awake as the encore and take out Lie.

Even better would be to play ALL of SFAM again and leave out most, if not ALL, of the mediocre DT12 songs!!......

Post by: Bargey on January 16, 2014, 08:02:38 PM
My thoughts:

The first Act is epic.  :metal It was always going to start with FAS into TES. Shattered Fortress is nice and metal, though I'd like to see them switch between it and The Glass Prison (easier in theory than in reality obviously). Angels ain't too bad of a song, and I would have been disappointed if they completely abandoned ADTOE already. The Looking glass ain't bad but I hope they rotate The Bigger Picture (by far the best song on DT12) and Behind The Veil through the setlists as well. I'm absolutely astonished The Bigger Picture isn't in the setlist, it's by far the biggest oversight. Trial of Tears will be great to see live, can't wait. Enigma machine is a crap instrumental and  I'm disappointed to see it in there but it was always going to get played, and I ain't got no time for solos, particularly drum solos. Along for the Ride I was hoping wasn't in the setlist to be honest, average track. Breaking All Illusions is brilliant and I'm glad it's still in there, by far the best song off of ADTOE and I'm glad it hasn't been dumped for this tour.

Act II... well here's where I get disappointed. Space Dye Vest well it's cool and all to get to hear it live after all these years, but not if it means a third of the concert is spent listening to the lesser half of Awake. The Mirror / Lie is a cool combo but not one I'd die to see (got to see it just two tours ago), LSOAD meh, Scarred would be cool to see live but there are much better DT 10min + epics I'd much rather see. Space Dye Vest well it's a cool song, but it's not a very DT song, and if it had been played on a semi regular rotation I don't think anyone would be hoping to see it. It's really in there for those fans who've seen DT 20 times and have yet to see it. Ideally if they wanted to pay tribute to Awake I would have much preferred A Mind Beside Itself + Space Dye Vest. Better tunes and taking a smaller chunk out of the concert time. Interesting that IT wasn't the closer for the first gig, it was always going to get played and it has really grown on me so I can't wait to see the boys smashing it out.

The Encore... I'm really glad to see Strange Deja Vu in there, it's a bit underrated IMO, and I like that they are leading in with 1928. Finally Free is a cool inclusion, TDOE I saw two tours ago so it could have been left out for something else.

I don't think no I&W is a bad thing, but I would have liked to see a bit more from other albums mixed through there, and a bit less from SFAM & Awake. Nothing at all from WDADU, I&W, SC, TOT, SDOIT, 8VM & BC&SL whilst playing 5 songs from a rather old album is kinda bizarre I think, anniversary or no. I also think it's a little strange that if you're paying tribute to a couple of albums that you don't play the most popular songs from those albums (SFAM: Beyond This Life, Spirit Carries On & Home, Awake: Voices), even if they've been regularly in the setlist rotation previously.

For my perfect setlist for this tour (sticking with the notion of getting a sizable chunk of Awake & SFAM in there) I would have liked:

1) From DT12 If they switched out TLG, EM & AFTR for TBP & BTV
2) Swap the first 4 Awake tracks for A Mind Beside itself
3) Ditch The Dance of Eternity (especially if MM's gonna screw it up LOL)
4) Rotate in six or so tracks here and there throughout the setlist from SC, TOT, SDOIT, 8VM & BC&SL

That said I'm still pumped to see this tour, for the most part the setlist is great. It's very much a setlist for hardcore fans who've seen the band many times, offering up some lesser known songs (to newbies) and some stuff that hasn't been seen in awhile, if ever.

I have never been in the financial situation to drive to a DT show before, considering I am in Louisiana.  I really want to see these cats live, but I'm now worried since they've only announced so far, a one month tour and the closest place I can drive to would be Kansas City.  Is there any talk of a second leg?  Surely they wouldn't give the finger to the other 38 states?

This setlist is completely drool worthy.  "Scarred" deserves to be played at every show on a tour, and we get a very tasty block of tunes from Awake to go with it.  I was stunned, as they have never played more than one Awake song per night in recent years, "A Mind Beside Itself" not withstanding.  Hopefully they will keep the set the same for the US leg.

Yeah, I was counting "The Mirror" and "Lie" as one, as they've treated them that way ever since the 8VM evening with shows.  Were "6:00" and "The Silent Man" played in the same night in America last tour?  I don't remember seeing that in the set lists.

As much as I love "A Mind Beside Itself", it's been played a ton over the years and I'm glad to see them giving time to the second half of the album.  The last three songs in particular have been criminally neglected.

The setlist so far is great, but i think they should replace "The Looking Glass" "On The Backs Of Angels" and "Breaking All Illusions" with "A Change Of Seasons". They haven't played it live since 2004 (I think) With the change the setlist should look like this:

False Awakening Suite (intro tape)
1. The Enemy Inside
2. The Shattered Fortress
3. Trial of Tears
4. Enigma Machine (w/ drum solo)
5. Along for the Ride
Dead Poets Society
6. A Change Of Seasons
=======================
Bad Larry cartoon
7. The Mirror
8. Lie
9. Lifting Shadows Off A Dream
10. Scarred
11. Space-Dye Vest
12. Illumination Theory
------------------------------
13. Overture 1928
14. Strange Deja-Vu
15. The Dance of Eternity
16. Finally Free
'Easter Egg' (outro tape)

I really hope they play it live when they come to Riverside, it's my favorite Dream Theater song, and my favorite song of all time.

With 3 instrumentals, and a long break in Illumination Theory, this shouldn't be as taxing as it might seem.  3 hour set; 20 minute break + about 30 minutes of music where he's not singing... it's really not much more for him than a non 'Evening With' format.

I still say it's a little much to ask James to sing 4 nights in a row at this point in his career.

With 3 instrumentals, and a long break in Illumination Theory, this shouldn't be as taxing as it might seem.  3 hour set; 20 minute break + about 30 minutes of music where he's not singing... it's really not much more for him than a non 'Evening With' format.

Yeah, but it's the 4 nights in a row several times that worries me.

A bit disappointed they haven't included Surrender to Reason, The Bigger Picture and Behind The Veil.

This a lot. I'd rather have these than any of the other songs from the album with the exception of Illumination Theory. Kind of funny how their choice of songs is pretty much the opposite of what I personally want to hear. I thought all of the three songs you mentioned were among most people's favorites on the record, so I'm very surprised that they don't even play one of them.

The only thing I would change to the setlist would be removing On the Backs of Angels and putting Behind the Veil, Surrender to Reason or The Bigger Picture. Any of those 3 songs would work wonders, considering OTBOA was played in every single show from the ADTOE tour. I love the set the way it is, but I'm truly dying to listen those 3 songs live.

I just read the updated North American tour and setlist.  Phenomenal setlist, but I'm utterly disappointed at how few US dates there are.  It seems they almost always make a point to hit the Dallas, Texas area.  But nothing even remotely close.  DT was the very first real "rock" concert I brought my son to on the last tour.  I'm hoping to repeat that event.  Fingers crossed that more US dates will follow....

They'll do a second leg with a support act and hit the Texas cities. They just never come down here doing the evening with format. I'm surprised AZ got a date; they normally get skipped as well.

I'll be curious to see what they'll do if they decide to do a second round of touring in Europe and North America on this tour. In Europe, they generally stuck with the Evening With format for both legs, but in North America, they did a package tour, but I get the sense that was more MP's doing than anything (keeping in line with his wanting to always change things up). For those cities that don't get hit on this leg of the tour, I hope that they'll consider another Evening With leg later in the year.

I stand corrected. I though they were subject to the same evening with passover. Seems they get all of the shows we do, plus the evening withs that we don't.

I suspect that part of the problem is that they only want to play Nextstage, witch is far too big a venue for them to sell alone. Even with their package tours they only sell about a third of it. HOB is a perfectly nice venue with the best sound in Dallas. It's perfect for them, but it never happens.

I'm not sure it's merely them wanting to play a specific venue. I'd imagine it has more to do with the promoters not being willing to front the money that the band commands in other markets. After all, Dallas isn't the only city in Texas that's big enough to warrant a DT concert. I know they've played Austin, and certainly San Antonio and Houston are huge cities too. The fact that they are in the same relative area makes it a better bet in terms of mapping out a touring route (especially if you were to include New Orleans and maybe Oklahoma City). So I think it has to do with what kind of offers they are getting from promoters there, the amount of time the band wants to be on the road for a given leg (generally no more than 5 weeks) and them going to some other cities they haven't played recently (you can't cover all the major cities effectively within that short a time period). I'm sure this is the same reason why Florida and the south in general don't get as many dates as the southwest, midwest and northeast.

Gotta be honest here, that explanation doesn't exactly endear me to them any. Plenty of bands do just fine playing down here, and the notion that we get skipped time and time again because we won't generate their asking price doesn't really sit all that well. I don't expect them to tour at a loss by any means but it's certainly possible to play down here and make money. I'd happily hit Houston or San Antonio, and plenty of people in either of those cities would come up here. Would it really be a problem to play one gig for less money to appeasea fairly enormous geographical market?And I don't really buy your geographical aspect, either. They're saturating the NE playing comparatively small venues. If they only wanted 4 weeks in the US, spending 2 of them in the NE doesn't seem all that cool. There comes a point where you have to try and balance greed with loyalty to your fans.

And to be fair, I don't know the economics of this situation. I'm basing this on the suggestion you made. What I do know is that bands of all shapes and sizes play down here profitably, and if they can't make enough money playing Texas, either they're doing something very wrong, or they're thinking a bit too highly of themselves.

To be honest, I don't know all the details either. My post is simply the best idea I can imagine coming up with to explain the situation. Again, it makes no sense for them to skip a specific city and/or region just because they want to/don't want to play at certain venues, which is what you suggested in your previous post.

As for them "saturating the NE", it is true that they play many shows there. But I think there's a couple of reasons why it makes more sense there than anywhere else - not only is it closer to their home (there could be some bias involved because of this), but there are many more cities in that area that are closer together, requiring less expense in transporting everything. And I don't think that they're playing comparatively small venues, if you're comparing to a House of Blues, which I imagine holds roughly 1500 people or less. I don't know the specifics of all the venues that DT's played around the NE region in recent years, but from my own personal experiences at the shows I attended in the NE, almost every one was larger than that.

As for them playing "one gig for less money to appease a fairly enormous geographical market", it may sounds like a reasonable request on paper, but it's a matter of making it all fit. Not just within the self-imposed 5 week window, but also so that it is cost effective in terms of transporting everything from city to city. If they were to play only one show in Texas as opposed to 3 or 4, I think it would actually be less cost effective. And let's remember that DT is a business, not a charity, so they gotta do what makes sense business-wise.

Again, I don't know all the details of why they skipped Texas so often when it came to headlining gigs, so there could be other things we haven't thought of. Hopefully they'll lengthen that self-imposed time limit on touring in a few years, now that most of their kids are in high school and will soon be in college (and no longer at home).

At least you can be happy that they're starting to do headlining shows in Texas again - by my count, 3 in 2007, 3 in 2011 and 4 in 2012. Whether there will be a second North American leg on this tour remains to be seen, but if there is, I'd guess that some Texas dates would be included.

These are good points, and as we've both pointed out we're mainly just talking out of our asses about this. Hell, it might be as simple as Cramx's scenario.  :lol

As for the smaller venues part, the only place they play in Dallas has a capacity of 6350. I didn't see anything close to that size in the NE. Problem is they only sell about 20% of the place, so it's not surprising that it isn't cost effective. As seen below, only the middle 3 sections of the 1 and 2 hundred level (the pit is actually 3 sections of seats when they play) are even offered for sale:

(http://intl.ticketseating.com/maps/450w/8658-verizon-theatre-at-grand-prairie-end-stage-zone.jpg)

The thing is, Dallas has tons of venues in their capacity range. Same sorts of places that they play in Houston and SA/Austin. Nice, 1.5-3.5k seat places. Don't see why they're so affixed to Nextstage. Then you've got Ft Worth, which probably has more suitable venues. My guess is that they favor venues with fixed seating, which narrows their options a bit, but they still have plenty to choose from. Hell, I'd bet if they played Denton's very nice performance hall they'd sell quite a few more tickets than they do in Dallas. It might also be that they favor Nextstage for being between Ft Worth and Dallas, but it doesn't really work that way. We're all used to driving from one to the other all the time for bands we really want to see, and Grand Prairie kind of sucks for everybody.

The PNC Bank Arts Center is a modern amphitheatre located in Holmdel Township, New Jersey, USA. About 17,500 people can occupy the amphitheater; there are 7,000 seats and the grass area can hold about 10,500 people.

We've had some discussion about this in the Red Bank concert thread, but when DT plays this venue, it also only sells like 20-30% of the capacity.  In 2012 when I saw them there, I bought lawn seats the day of the show, but they moved me up to like the 20th row for free.

I've seen them do that with our shed down here. Usually they'll actually curtain off the shed from the lawn seating to "encourage" people to move forward. I suspect that it's considerably cheaper to book the place when they only need half the security, half the parking lots, half the concessions, etc. Still, it certainly seems like it'd be better to just play an appropriately sized venue.

Also, all of our shed concerts are in the Summer, and if you curtain off all of the covered seating so that no breeze can get under there it's downright insufferable.

LOL! One could assume so, if it weren't for the fact that they still do play shows there! Granted, they've been package shows, with some headlining and opening shows mixed in, but it's better than nothing.

That said, there have been occasions where they've "blacklisted" certain locations due to the terrible problems that they had - their bad experience in mainland China made them swear off playing there again. And while that is extreme, I'm sure that there are some venues that have been blacklisted - one I would imagine is the Palace Theater in Los Angeles, site of the infamous fire marshal show.

In reading over your response, another thing came to mind - they have booking agents that book their shows, so it could be a matter of the booking agents having some bias. I dunno. The point that you make about different size venues is a valid one. Perhaps it's a matter of them (or even the booking agents) not being fully aware of all the venues available? I know I mentioned to MP about the Open Air Theater on the campus of SDSU around 2002 after I had seen a pair of concerts there. I don't think he ever mentioned it to their manager or booking agent, but I found it very interesting that they played that venue on Gigantour (which would've been booked by Megadeth's booking manager), and they ended up playing the same venue the next time they played in San Diego.

One other thing that I just thought of might have to do with the political behind the scenes crap that probably goes on with booking shows. It's been a few years and I'm too tired to try to dig up the article now, but I remember reading somewhere that Clear Channel and/or Live Nation had been purchasing numerous venues, including some, if not all of the HOB's. The article said that since they had so much control over the US concert market, they could cause hassles for bands that tried to book some of their shows at venues they didn't own, in cities where they did have a presence. So that could be another reason why shows are booked the way they are.

And it could be that the promoters they deal with aren't comfortable booking them without an opening act or two. After all, DT doesn't command the audience of Rush, so there may be concerns that way.

Regarding the seating thing - it is an established fact (MP said so several years ago) that they are choosing to play in venues with seats, especially for the longer (Evening With) shows, so that the fans can sit down when they need to.

The PNC Bank Arts Center is a modern amphitheatre located in Holmdel Township, New Jersey, USA. About 17,500 people can occupy the amphitheater; there are 7,000 seats and the grass area can hold about 10,500 people.

We've had some discussion about this in the Red Bank concert thread, but when DT plays this venue, it also only sells like 20-30% of the capacity.  In 2012 when I saw them there, I bought lawn seats the day of the show, but they moved me up to like the 20th row for free.
This is one of the venues I've been to and seen DT at (altho I personally don't like the venue). Even then, consider let's say 25% of the capacity of this venue - that's still 4,375 tickets. Never mind the fact that both Philadelphia and New York City are each only about 2 hours driving distance, and typically they play in good sized venues for both cities too. So you can see why there's a big focus playing in the NE.

Sadly, I'll bet they have blacklisted the Pageant here in St. Louis, which is why they haven't been here since that show here in '04 where that idiot fell out of the balcony going for one of the drumsticks Portnoy tossed into the crowd.  If so, that is completely unfair to blacklist an entire city basically because of one idiot, but there really is no other rational reason for them not having come here since (we went to their shows here in '94, '00 and '04, and all of them were packed to the max with energetic crowds)

It would seem pretty strange that booking agencies wouldn't be familiar with the various options here. I know that Nextstage pretty much inherited the entire Bronco Bowl market by default when BB got bulldozed, which is how I suspect that DT wound up playing there. Most bands that played the Bronco Bowl now play out there, which is probably why Nextstage accommodates them with the half/quarter size configurations. Seems odd, though. As for HOB/CC, that's an interesting notion. I know that Nextstage is AEG, so there's no affiliation with HOB there, and if they're not obligated to them then there shouldn't be any problem. After thinking about it, most of the sorts of places that would work for them are city owned, so no hassles there, either. You've got a couple of colleges that host rock concerts (UTA just built a new concert hall just for that sort of thing; saw Kansas there recently).

Something that always puzzled me was why promoters would think that the sorts of bands that open for DT would actually boost attendance. Do they think that people who would normally blow off DT would drive all the way to Grand Prairie because Periphery is opening? Of course no sooner than I type that I remember that I drove to Austin largely because Crimson Projekt was opening.  :lol

Just admit it, DT hates Texas  ;)
LOL! One could assume so, if it weren't for the fact that they still do play shows there! Granted, they've been package shows, with some headlining and opening shows mixed in, but it's better than nothing.

That said, there have been occasions where they've "blacklisted" certain locations due to the terrible problems that they had - their bad experience in mainland China made them swear off playing there again. And while that is extreme, I'm sure that there are some venues that have been blacklisted - one I would imagine is the Palace Theater in Los Angeles, site of the infamous fire marshal show.
 
 
As for the smaller venues part, the only place they play in Dallas has a capacity of 6350. I didn't see anything close to that size in the NE. Problem is they only sell about 20% of the place, so it's not surprising that it isn't cost effective. As seen below, only the middle 3 sections of the 1 and 2 hundred level (the pit is actually 3 sections of seats when they play) are even offered for sale:

(http://intl.ticketseating.com/maps/450w/8658-verizon-theatre-at-grand-prairie-end-stage-zone.jpg)

The thing is, Dallas has tons of venues in their capacity range. Same sorts of places that they play in Houston and SA/Austin. Nice, 1.5-3.5k seat places. Don't see why they're so affixed to Nextstage. Then you've got Ft Worth, which probably has more suitable venues. My guess is that they favor venues with fixed seating, which narrows their options a bit, but they still have plenty to choose from. Hell, I'd bet if they played Denton's very nice performance hall they'd sell quite a few more tickets than they do in Dallas. It might also be that they favor Nextstage for being between Ft Worth and Dallas, but it doesn't really work that way. We're all used to driving from one to the other all the time for bands we really want to see, and Grand Prairie kind of sucks for everybody.
In reading over your response, another thing came to mind - they have booking agents that book their shows, so it could be a matter of the booking agents having some bias. I dunno. The point that you make about different size venues is a valid one. Perhaps it's a matter of them (or even the booking agents) not being fully aware of all the venues available? I know I mentioned to MP about the Open Air Theater on the campus of SDSU around 2002 after I had seen a pair of concerts there. I don't think he ever mentioned it to their manager or booking agent, but I found it very interesting that they played that venue on Gigantour (which would've been booked by Megadeth's booking manager), and they ended up playing the same venue the next time they played in San Diego.

One other thing that I just thought of might have to do with the political behind the scenes crap that probably goes on with booking shows. It's been a few years and I'm too tired to try to dig up the article now, but I remember reading somewhere that Clear Channel and/or Live Nation had been purchasing numerous venues, including some, if not all of the HOB's. The article said that since they had so much control over the US concert market, they could cause hassles for bands that tried to book some of their shows at venues they didn't own, in cities where they did have a presence. So that could be another reason why shows are booked the way they are.

And it could be that the promoters they deal with aren't comfortable booking them without an opening act or two. After all, DT doesn't command the audience of Rush, so there may be concerns that way.

Regarding the seating thing - it is an established fact (MP said so several years ago) that they are choosing to play in venues with seats, especially for the longer (Evening With) shows, so that the fans can sit down when they need to.

Isn't it possible that they were blacklisted by the theater for said incident? They may have taken issue with the fact that the idiot fell because MP had thrown the drumstick in the air.

Strange - didn't realize that they had been skipping over that city for so long. Honestly, I can't imagine that they'd blacklist that venue or even the city over what a fan did. But as Wasteland said, it could be that the venue could be the ones preventing them from playing there. Or it could be some sort of legal threat because of what happened. Hard to say. And they may feel that because St. Louis isn't that far away from Kansas City or Chicago, that you guys can travel there. Then again, it could be that they get better offers in KC so that they opt to play there for the region - I'm sure that's one of the reasons that they'll always do shows in Chicago.

It really would be interesting to know why some cities and regions (not just Texas, the south and Florida, but the northwest and even Indiana) get passed over on at least a semi-regular basis.

Agreed, considering it's their job to be familiar with all the options, but who's to say they stay on top of this all the time, or maybe have assistants or employees who help book the shows that don't have that same knowledge. Without knowing all the ins and outs of booking concerts, all we can do is guess.

It may seem odd, but it must be cost effective, or else you wouldn't continue to see them doing it over and over.

LOL! It could be that this is just the rule of thumb that promoters always go by. After all, we can say that we are one of the most dedicated fanbases in the world, but I'd wager that the majority of hardcore fans of any band/artist would say the same thing about their respective fanbases. So my point is, while we see DT and it's fanbase as different, the promoters do not, and therefore assume that they'll always sell more tickets having more bands on the bill.

That is very possible.  In fact, I have wondered that before here, too.  But if that is the case, why not go to another venue in the area?  It's not like the Pageant is the only venue around here that is fitting for a band that draws like DT.

I would never have a beef with them playing in Chicago, which is clearly the biggest city in the Midwest and a natural city for any band to play.  But KC getting shows all the time, while we get ignored?  That just blows.

I don't have any inside information regarding their tour plans, but if I were you, I'd go ahead and plan on traveling to one of the shows in the north. While it's true that they usually do 2 legs through North America, there's no telling if they'll be Evening With shows or if they'll do a show close to where you live.
