Dream Theater / Re: DT16 Timeline Thread - DT16 sessions initiated
« Last post by Chino on Today at 10:54:48 AM »
I still continue to strongly believe that a summer tour followed by an album release is the only possibility that makes sense.

When the band did ADTOE, they did a small amount of setlist rotation before phasing it out entirely by DT12. I think we’re going to see the inverse: the initial tour will be a static escape from the studio tour, then maybe we’ll see some rotation slots for the full album tour before a big Evening With type deal with old school style rotating setlists.

1. announce the dates
2. take my money
3. repeat

The first shows back are going to be nuts, hoping to make as many stops as possible - rotation of sets or not.  Still a little surreal this is happening.

I'm on board with this.   I'm blessed that if they do this "local" I'll have multiple opportunities to catch them playing.  I don't care about growing pains and learning curves; that's what's going to make it special to me. 

I know we've touched on this a couple times since 'the announcement', but I'm hoping for the hometown kickoff as well.  And couldn't agree more w the growing pains - it's okay that they show they're human.  However, regardless of where this ends up happening, I will be making every effort to get there for show #1.

I have a limited entertainment budget in 2024 and the majority of those dollars will be going to DT if/when they decide to escape from the studio.  The meetups will be great too - there's so much excitement for this next chapter for DT.

Outside of the Radio City Music hall DVD filming, and some extra views of The Astonishing, I've never really bothered with seeing DT outside of CT despite so many other shows being so close. I'd definitely make an exception this time around. I imagine a kickoff show in NYC would sell out pretty quickly.

Hmm yeah, there is a little difference on that chorus. It might have another instrument giving some extra flair, maybe keyboard or a second guitar. Nice find!

There's something similar, and maybe more clear, at 6:50 of At Wit's End where JM plays a "wrong" note.  If you start at 5:55 to get the feel of the melody and structure and then hear the 6:50 note it hits pretty hard.

I just found another example at 3:18 of Halestorm's "Tell Me Where It Hurts" if you start from 2:58 to get the feel first.

Is there a musical term for this?

Also, I'm just totally blown away by The Warning's stage presence.  They perform like they've been touring for 20 years and their sound is so huge for just 3 people.  It really adds so much to the experience when the artists look like they're enjoying being there.

Rikard posted a picture of him in Ft. Wayne last Friday, I think it was. He was on the town and at a bar.

Yeah the meatball/pasta thing cracked me up too. Great to see the band finally in the states.

When I went to see Bruce Springsteen, I eventually found out that he dropped the last song of the main set (Thunder Road) and the first song of the encore (Born in the USA). Am I happy about it? no. Do I think there was anything I could do about it? no, it's him who's in charge of the setlist. I paid for a Springsteen show and I got to see him playing 3 hours anyway, I didn't pay for a specific song. Again, I would have loved those two songs that many other dates got, but it's the band or the artist that make the setlists, I don't, I have no power over that and I accept that.

I'm in agreement with everything you said, but I'd be freaking crushed if I went to see Springsteen and didn't hear that song/heard it was cut. That's one of his top 3 live tracks, imo. It'd be like Tom Petty cutting Free Fallin'.

Why even bother going to the show, if you already know exactly what's going to happen?


I mean, I get the fascination of unpredictable setlists but I have hardly (never actually) made a decision to see a show based on me knowing what an artist will play or not. Don't really get why that would be a dealbreaker. In the end I would assume one would still enjoy seeing your favorite artist perform music you like would weigh more than anything else?

For our in-flight meals I notice that Alberto chooses the meatballs and Rikard the pasta, thus reversing the natural order of things.

This cracked me up.  :rollin
