If my friend decides he wants to take the trip, then I might be heading to the show too.

I just bought my ticket, and this will be my first time seeing them live.

I wonder if they will change the setlist to make more use of the strings and choir.

Since the show is being filmed and released as an official DVD, I would avoid sharing personal recordings.   In this case, I ere on the side of letting the band first present the show as they intend.
But still photography?

Well, we know the band doesn't want you to take photos, if that answers it for you.  I anticipate the venue's employees to be especially vigilant at this show.  Just an assumption, though.

Okay, that's what I really wanted to know.

Strings? Choir? Live DVD? One of a kind? They're gonna play Six Degrees. It all adds up harmoniously. Ive got tickets in the mezzinaine so I guess ill find out.

Probably not. They're most likely to play the set they've been playing in Europe these days.

It's been done on Score, so that's not exactly one of a kind. ;)
Plus, it's too much new material to learn. I'd be very surprised if they deviated from their current setlist.
Only King could mis-spell a LETTER.
Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

They won't play 6 Degrees. That doesn't make sense.

But I would still be surprised if the setlist is not tweaked. I'm trying to figure out how they would incorporate the strings and choir into the current 2nd set, other than Illumination Theory and maybe Space Dye Vest. I'm sure they are not there for one song.
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related

Hurrah!  Things lined up properly, and I just bought tickets for myself and my kids (18 and 23--this will likely be our last DT road trip all together)!  We're way up in the balcony (that's all that's left), but in an opera house, those will still be decent seats.   :metal :metal :metal :metal :metal :metal :metal :metal :tup :tup :tup :tup

Well, i heard they are going to do something extra special for the DVD recording. Heard they're gonna play set 1 and set 2 + the encore as most of us know 'em + a 2nd encore (or an added song to the encore). Wether it's true is something i can't tell you but that would be very cool.

If it's true, what would it be? What would you like to hear? ACOS (although i wonder how that song would work out with an orchestra, but DT can make everything sound awesome)?

I just noticed a bunch of seats now available in side orchestra sections.   Didn't see these last few weeks, so maybe Live Nation made available another clump of tickets?  These are REALLY DECENT seats, so if you haven't purchased your tickets yet to this historic show . . . now is the time.

We'll be in the pit in front of the stage, with cameras looking at us.

I don't know if they are planning anything else than the current set but what I was informed is the set will be the set and we'll be a part of it.

https://www.dreamtheater.net/news/one-kind-show-berklee-college-music-90811

The telling line from the DT blog is "This special homecoming will be captured and recorded for a later release.".

I may be wrong, but I interpret "captured" to mean "filmed".  However, I don't know if "later release" necessarily means "DVD / Blue-Ray".

I'm pretty sure the new seats were released to accompany the "free trip to Boston show" contest that DT announced a few hours later on facebook.  The contest blurb mentions that tickets are available, and thus spake zarathustra: "Let some good seats appear." 

Of course, I like to think these new seats are meant to accommodate the family members of the Berklee students performing.

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 can't wait for my first DT show!!  I have been listening to them for awhile now as I am a big prog fan (also a big fan of improvisational acts like Umphrey's McGee and Phish).  Will people be standing/dancing at this show?  I don't really love sit down affairs but can understand why this might be one given the formal/stuffy nature of the venue.  In any case I am psyched for my first show and feel like I am getting spoiled rotten with the setlist (particularly the SFAM stuff in the encore and tracks like Enigma Machine and IT from the new album).  The inclusion of the Berklee Orchestra/Choir is just a cherry on top.  Who knows, I may try to see them again in NY/LI the following weekend to experience a "regular" show.  Happy to join this board and get immersed in such a talented band.  DT have put themselves on a level with Gentle Giant and Umphrey's McGee in my ears as one of the tightest/most talented bands I have ever heard.  Their virtuoso chops and stop on a dime changes are really what do it for me.  That and I am a sucker for a good ballad after a band flexes it muscles in odd signature or extremely technical sections (makes for a nice contrast and provides the listener with a breather)...  I hope to meet some folks on this board at the show.  Sorry for the ramble!!
