I kind of feel region only releases make no sense in the digital world.  I'd buy this if I could, but if they only release it in Asia, well, I am sure I'll find a way to be able to listen.

Also, Chycki said it's for a TV stream in Japan, he didn't say anything about it going to be released in some way or anything like that. Guess we'll have to wait and see.
It sounds like, "ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk." Instead of the more pleasing kick drum sound of, "gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk."

But this wouldn't be atypical? I mean, if it's only for a TV stream, it makes sense to pay a well known producer (in this case, the band's "producer") to mix it?

While that cover art could be the official cover release, until it's posted on DT's official site, I find that highly suspect. The fact that it includes text that says "Original Master Stereo IEM Matrix Recording" sounds like something you'd expect on some bootleg cover art, not an official release. Why would the band use a matrix of IEM (inner ear monitor) sources as opposed to the original multi-track recordings to do a proper mix? And the fact that BW also included audience shot footage posted on YouTube gives me added reason that this is just a Blabbermouth-style post.

edit: Forgot to mention, a bootleg of one (or more) IEM source of this particular show is already circulating in trading circles, so it's even more reason to expect that the cover art BW posted is not official. Nevermind the fact that it's almost a given that the intro tape (which DT did not write/record) would not be included in the official release either.

As a basic rule, if you hate it, you must solely blame Portnoy. If it's good, then you must downplay MP's contribution to the band as not being important anyway, or claim he's just lying. It's the DTF way.

The article lists 3 discs in the tracklist.

The article does not site any source for where it got the tracklist - and there's been no confirmation or press release that states that this will be anything other than the Wowow TV airing.
There will be a reckoning.

Memory may be failing but I thought Bosk had spoken with JP and JP told him this would not be happening for DVD release.

Not this specifically, no.  Last time I spoke to him about a live release was for The Astonishing, and he said that was going to be very unlikely.

It really seems unlikely for an official release, but if they are putting it on TV, I'm sure it will end up on youtube and hopefully maybe as an official bootleg since this sounds more like something along that then an official release.

I can't believe they are not putting out some kind of live release being that there is this big of a gap between albums. I know it's risky and costly to especially make a concert dvd, but I would hope they have enough faith in their fan base to go for it. They've skipped alot of places on their last two tours and I'm sure there's plenty of people who would like to see these shows on film.
 The Astonishing was such a cool production with the stage and lighting, such a shame that slipped away (even though I can kind of see why from a business standpoint), but damn!
 An audio version of the last two tours would be a nice welcome if anything..

Why would a band do this?

Back in the day CDs would have bonus tracks specific to a region, usually Japan, cuz people could by the "regular" North American CD for WAY cheaper so in order to entice them to buy it locally they'd put these on for an incentive... and then us in NA would pay insane money for the "import" with the rare track.

But that was then, now I with downloading/streaming I don't see the point of making things exclusive to certain regions so TL;DR I dunno why bands would do this today.

They haven't released a live CD since Score. The recent live DVDs have only had the CD available as part of deluxe editions. I'm not that interested in DVDs, as I rarely have time to watch them, but love CD versions because I can put them in my CD rack and see all the spines lined up. I'm old school, I like that.

So yes, a proper live CD release of IW&B would be more than welcome.

I'm the opposite. I still buy CDs for bands I truly enjoy, but I don't even end up taking the plastic off. I end up just using Spotify in the car for convenience. DVD/Blu rays though.. those I love. They're great to have on in the background. I always have concerts playing when I'm working at my workbench, and pausing to watch a guitar solo or something is a joy. At least for me.

I prefer live dvd's as well. Its great to kick back with a friend and a few beers and enjoy a good concert right in your living room. With modern HD tv's and a good stereo sound system, it's the next best thing to actually being at the concert. Especially if the show is done right. The new David Gilmour Live at Pompeii is a great example..  :hefdaddy

Love that pic. Would totally be okay if this went either official release or official bootleg. I would just hope that they include the songs not played at Budokan as bonus tracks after ACOS (To Live Forever, Don't Look Past Me, The Spirit Carries On, and A Life Left Behind). I can never get enough live versions of TLF.

While we're dreaming, might as well give us an Astonishing Live 2016 official boot as well! :metal

If you are curious about the quality of DT’s performance on this show, search on google for “ultimate bootleg experience dream theater 2017-09-11 Tokyo” (sorry, I couldn’t paste the direct link), and you'll have a very good bootleg (one of the best to hear Mangini’s drums AND cymbals IMO). Although this tour had been very hard for James, I think this was a relatively good show for him.

Just googled it and the image that was posted here is from that bootleg, so it's fan made.

I don't believe it is too expensive for them to record a live video at all. If small local artists can make a half decent looking dvd/blu ray these days (also, see Mike Portnoy's projects, most of which have a good live recording as well), so can DT. Hell, if you really want to go on a low ass budget, you can go with a bunch of gopro cameras, like Gentle Storm once did for promotional purposes.

It is more a matter of wanting to do it and the planning involved. And there is likely some/a lot of music rights related stuff in play if they want a release, because I think Roadrunner probably isn't too interested in making a big release on their label. So it obviously does take effort and time and by extent money, but in concept a ytskejam esque "bootleg" dvd in this day and age could be viable.

Thankfully this is actually very easy. Since DT are members of rights organizations (BMI and ASCAP, depending on the band member) - any song they've released is registered to BMI and ASCAP. That means; anyone can record and release a song as long as they pay the rights holders (in this case BMI and ASCAP) the royaltees for it. So DT doesnt strictly have to deal with roadrunner at all regarding RIGHTS - but theres a record deal that may restrict certain elements of this though (for instance giving Roadrunner the right to control which labels DT can otherwise appear on)...

Oh, just saw that. Well, I guess we're back on the great debate of standing/sitting :D sorry, it was right there

I gotta say, as much as I liked the sitting-in-theaters-concept of The Astonishing tour, the right feeling just doesn't come up at this kind of shows (I mean the I&W tour, not the TA tour) if you HAVE to sit. I understand that at some point in your life you don't wanna stand 3 hours in a dark hall that smells like sweat at 38°C. I guess the best solution would be a standing area and some seats on the balcony (which has been mentioned).

I saw a bluray for sale on a Dutch site (marktplaats) today.
It stated that this show was pro-shot.
Unfortunately the bluray was already sold.
I assume this means that the show has been broadcast already.
I'd love to be able to watch this somehow.
If anyone has a link, please let me know! :)
