So, anything special planned for these shows do you think?

I can't imagine that there isn't something special planned--I mean two nights at one venue, I smell a treat!

I hope they announce something about these two shows and whether something special will be done or if they will just be regular shows.  The PNC show is much more convenient for me and I'm leaning towards that one.  But I just can't imagine that they don't have something special planned for these shows.  I've never been there but it seems like a small venue for what DT is used to these days, which is kinda cool although if it's general admission I wouldn't be too crazy about that.  Guess we'll just have to wait and see if they say anything about it.

INB4 some bitch after the show that the things they did aren't as cool or special as the things they supposedly would have done had Portnoy still been in the band. :biggrin:

Those would be perfect to film for the next DVD. But wouldn't the band announce it so that fans can plan to fly in? So possibly the DVD won't be filmed there...

These are going to be the DVD shows obviously and I'm so glad they chose NY for them.
Considering JP is probably going to manage the set lists; I think both nights are going to have 70% similar songs and of course that pays off for the editing and the montage of the final product, and I expect the couple extra songs to be bonus footage on the DVD. I prefer that approach, just like I prefer JP's fixed set lists with minor rotations, it's fair and establishes performance perfection.
I say DVD but I actually want a BluRay and I want it to the standard of the Porcupine Tree's Anesthetize BluRay in terms of audio and video quality, superb audio mixing and surround features. I want the direction and the editing to be similar to that of Budokhan DVD.
I'd also like a documentary that features a tour of the set and how the idea for the 3 cubes came together, the videos that play with each song, etc.
I want multi angle camera options on BiTS, Outcry, BAI and at least 2 more songs.
I'd like to have subtitles but it's not a make or break feature.
And last but not least I want the artwork to be connected to that of ADToE and I want the DVD to include all ADToE songs that was played on this tour. I just really want that release to mark and document this great era that I'm enjoying so much.
I wouldn't want somebody with 18 kids to mow my damn lawn, based on a longstanding bias I have against crazy fucks.

This venue seems to be too small for a DVD

It has a capacity of 1,500.  Maybe the size is why they're doing two nights there?  It's got a GA floor plus mezzanine at the back and balconies on each side.

It's a brand new, BEAUTIFUL venue.  Just opened up a few months ago.

I'm so psyched for this.  The venue is literally within walking distance from my apartment.

You're leaving Long Island?  A Long Island without ZeppelinDT is like a Dream Theater without Mike Portnoy.

These two shows instantly become the highlight of my summer.  I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it.

Not definite.  But if I did move, the furthest I'd go would be Brooklyn.  I'm looking for a new job, and while I'd prefer to stay out here, I have to consider looking in the city too.  But if I took a city job I don't know if I'd wanna do that commute every day.

^ Awesome! Enjoy what either way (special show or just 2nd normal concert) will be a kickass show! I really wish I could have made it to NY for those.

I got my tickets for both shows.  On the right side.  2nd row first night, 3rd row second night.

I'll be traveling from Colorado to see this as they have skipped us on both legs of this tour.

I also got tickets for both shows and went for the GA and I will be traveling from Denmark and since I'm over there in the US I might as well make it a roadtrip and take the gigs in Boston and Chester

What?  They did seating?  I was so busy at work that I didn't even get to look at buying tickets yet.  I figured it was General Admission so  I didn't have to rush.  Fuck.
