I am flying over from Seattle for this show. I wasn't originally going to cause I couldn't find decent seats, but a few good seats went on sale on ticketmaster about a week ago so now I'm row Orch Center Row B! Super excited. Do you guys thing they are going to mix up the setlist at all for the special show?

I think I saw in an interview with JP that the setlist won't change at all this tour ( fine with me).  I guess if they were to tweak it at all, this would be the show that they would do it for though...

There isn't any changes to the setlist, but there's a great amount of music that will include the orchestra.  :smiley:

That's my thought, I won't complain about the setlist at all, since it's a monster set. But I'm seeing them a few times this tour and wouldn't mind a few other songs for the Boston show, plus I'd be curious if they'd add or change any songs to fully take advantage of the orchestra. Like I think TSCO would be really cool with a choir! Or maybe they'd throw in 8VM, but I'm probably just wishful thinking lol!

I'm looking forward to hearing the contributions from the orchestra.  I'm sure it's going to be great!  Good luck to you, and have fun.

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

He composed / arranged the strings on DT12, The acoustic break on LALP, and is the one arranging the string parts for the Boston Show (Correct me on terms if I'm wrong)

Pay for my ticket, hotel, food and airfare and I will make sure you hear TCOT at the show. I can't guarantee it will be live but I'll make sure you hear it :D

On another note, It's been 10 years (at least according to setlist.fm) since they've played ACOS. Maybe time for another play during the Boston show??  :metal

Boston peeps, I plan on arriving in the city around 10am. Between then and meetup my girlfriend and I would like to do a walking tour, and a museum. For museums we are leaning towards the Natural Science Museum or the Science Museum. Others will be considered if you folks think they are really good though. And any recs on walking tours would be greatly appreciated.

Have you done the Freedom Trail? If not, do that. It's the Boston first time tourist thing to do.

Yeah, that's what we're looking into currently. As of now she downloaded audio for each stop, and I think we'll just grab a map and walk it ourselves.

Yup. They give out free maps at Park Street, where the walk starts.

I'll work on it this week and post a few places locally.  Then we can all agree on a few spots and pick one we can all agree upon.

That place definitely looks neat. My only concern would be if it's TOO close to the venue and on the smaller side, might be hard to get a group in there.
