I can't remember which one was mine, but Deadwing was the first PT album I ever bought, followed by Signify. Hearing Coma Divine for the first time cemented my love for the band. They became my most listened-to band during high school, even more so than Dream Theater, which I listened to almost exclusively in the second-to-last year. Coma Divine still is my favourite PT release and all-round favourite live album.
Hey dude slow the fuck down so we can finish together at the same time.  :biggrin:

Well, I'm taking the plunge. Only one way to find out how this will pan out. I hope we have some fun.

Moving into 2018, the big event is touring most of the year with my band. As well as playing music from To the Bone, Im going to be dedicating some of the repertoire to two albums that are soon to receive high-profile reissues, which are In Absentia and Deadwing (starting first with remastered vinyl editions in February/March). There is also going to be a lot of new visual elements to the show myself, Lasse Hoile, Jess Cope and lighting designer Martin have all been working hard to try to take everything to the next level in terms of spectacle.
Let the setlist speculation begin, right? :P I'm expecting at least Blackest Eyes to make an appearance, given that it's one of the biggest PT songs, but SW hasn't played it with his solo band yet. Out of the more obscure tracks, maybe Mellotron Scratch and the live premiere of Collapse the Light into Earth?

PLEASE STEVEN PLAY GRAVITY EYELIDS AND MELLOTRON SCRATCH :heart

Oh yes! That would be amazing.

You're probably going to the Amsterdam show as well, right?

Just a heads-up that The Wilson Cup will be kicking off tomorrow with the Qualifying section. This will involve the following songs:

PORT RUBICON, PUNCTURE WOUND, COLLECTING SPACE, INSURGENTES (MEXICO), THE 78, GRACE FOR DROWNING, RAIDER PRELUDE, BELLE DE JOUR, HOME IN NEGATIVE, FLUID TAP, THE MAP, RAIDER ACCELERATION, BLACK DOG THROWBACKS, CLOCK SONG, THE BIRTHDAY PARTY, FIRST REGRET, ASCENDANT HERE ON..., KEY OF SKELETON, LAST REGRET, MY BOOK OF REGRETS, YEAR OF THE PLAGUE, HAPPINESS III, SUNDAY RAIN SETS IN, VERMILLIONCORE, DON'T HATE ME (2016), MOMENT I LOST, PLEASE COME HOME, FOUR TREES DOWN, THE UNQUIET GRAVE, WELL YOU'RE WRONG, AN END TO END, ASK ME NICELY (INTRO), A DOOR MARKED SUMMER, ASK ME NICELY, NORTHERN CYCLONIC

These comprise bonus tracks from special editions of the five studio albums, interlude-type tracks from the albums, the entire 4 EP, and the original songs from the Cover Version EPs. Five of these songs will join the 45 songs (every studio album track except the few listed here) in the main tournament. You'll be asked to pick the five songs you want to see in the main draw. Depending on how many participants we get, the songs with fewer votes (certainly those with 0 votes, and likely those with 1 vote) will be eliminated and we'll go again until we get down to five songs. More information is available in the Home thread (link in my signature below) and on the voting thread I'll start tomorrow.

So, I missed the boat on seeing Steven this time in Boston :( The venue is too small for his popularity, and the tickets are sold out. Ticketmaster has resale tickets, but for $230, which is absurd. Maybe I'm lucky and I can snag a ticket the day of.
EDIT: Stubhub has some for $150, but even that is outrageous. $80 is my pain threshold.

The Group Stage of the Wilson Cup has begun! Groups A & B are here. There will be new polls starting each day, so make sure to go check Polls & Survivors regularly.

Voting in each poll lasts for 24 hours.

And this will be the last "plug" (from me anyway) in this thread, at least until the latter end of the group stage.

Same thing happened to me for the Montreal and Quebec city shows, they'Ve been sold out for months.  For a "prog" act in 2018 that's pretty impressive.
