They're playing my city. I'm not a huge fan, but I went and had a good time last time around, so I might consider going again.

They miss Zagreb this time but tbh this could make me visit Slovenia, ToF might be my favorite album of this decade :azn: BTW they get so much more concerts than us :'( (I guess Mladen knows what I'm talking about, too)

Yeah, Slovenia gets more concerts than Croatia, which gets more concerts than Serbia. But we still get more concerts than Bosnia and Herzegovina.  ;)

New live album

Awesome!  :metal Hopefully, a DVD too.

Hopefully, but since Jim mentions Still Life and there have been DVD's since then, it might only be an album.  Fingers crossed though.  The new album deserves a thorough representation of a live CD and DVD.

I hope for a live DVD too! But I agree it seems unlikely because the way they announced it.

Really disappointed it sounds like they're only doing a live ALBUM.  After seeing the Awaken the Guardian blu ray, I'm itching for a blu ray of this current version of FW on the Theories of Flight tour.  The last live video release they had was Live in Athens from like 2004, which was so long ago.  Hopefully they reconsider and do a video release too.  Personally, I never listen to live albums, but I'll sure watch a video!

Me too. But it is hard to financially justify it. AtG was a no-brainer, because those were two sold out performances of a legendary record with the guys that recorded it. That's a big deal. But while I consider Theories of Flight to be one of Fates Warning's best records (its up there as arguably the best record with Ray), it simply doesn't draw enough attention to probably cover the cost of capturing and producing a Blu-ray. Sucks though. I wish they could find a way. Hell, I'd contribute a bunch on a kickstarter or go fund me something to raise money for it.

I'm thrilled that they are making a point to avoid overlap as much as possible for this live set.

Amen. Gonna be fantastic. My hopes are:

Seven Stars
White Flag
The Light and Shade of Things
From the Rooftops
One Thousand Fires
Firefly

>>>And then whatever else. But I am really hoping this six make the cut for the live record.

They were playing Pale Fire and Part of The Machine on the last tour. I'm hoping they bring those back for the live album. Also, not very likely, but I hope they bust out either "And Yet it Moves" or "Ghosts of Home", as those are my favorites from their respective albums. I'm pretty confident that "Rooftops", "Light and Shade", and "Firefly" will make the cut, at least. :) I'd also love to see...hear "White Flag", as well.
