My best guess is that the first image is from another venue they used for practicing with the ensemble. Here's another image of the Opera House:

So yeah, 9th row might be still a good distance away, TAC.

The two images don't seem to match up at all.

The first image is from House of Blues in Boston.

The first picture is my rehearsal with orchestra only at a Berklee facility. Second one is from yesterday, rehearsal with band at House of Blues. Tonight, opera house!!

We ran through our part yesterday so smooth it was awesome. Everybody was really happy. I have no doubt you will all love it tonight. The venue is gorgeous as well.

My setlist prediction:

Everything the same except

1-Adding Spirit Carries On After dance of eternity
2-Remove Lie from the setlist
3-Swap Along for the Ride with Space Dye Vest in the setlist order

Eren said there's no variation.

I thought Eren said there might be one addition to the setlist?


This was also a little bit ago though so IDK
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

I heard from a source they wanted to really make it a truly special dvd, so they will be playing The Spirit Carries On, and WIMH/TTTSTA. Because no Dream Theater dvd is complete without those three songs.

Haha are you serious? They played The Spirit Carries On to death (Dramatic Tour of Events, Black Clouds tour, Chaos in Motion tour and also the Octavarium tour) and also appeared on Live at Luna Park.

I wonder what they'll do with OTBOA and BIA since those songs also appeared on LALP.

 :hat Sarcasm green would have been too easy ;)

That's actually the best thing about this DVD (the fact that those three songs aren't on it  :lol).

Apparently OTBOA and BAI are the new consistent repeats.

I just know that some poor soul has stayed away from the setlist and YouTube videos and just had the entire setlist spoiled for him when they opened that booklet  :lol

Also, at least people won't be clamoring for setlist updates, as we know that it is the same already.

Which song(s) does the ensembles perform with the band? Judging by JR's video clip I saw earlier today, at LEAST "Illumination Theory".

-Marc.
