YNM live would be an incredible rarity. I think it was only played a couple times on the FII tour but is actually a great hard-rock song that I think would work really well live. I wish MP would've never commented on this song because now all the fans tend to dislike it too, probably just because of that.

Well...that's just not true.  A number of very vocal Portnoy sycophants don't like it, but I doubt their opinions are typical of "all the fans."

And most people that don't like it appear to have held that same opinion long before learning of Portnoy's feelings about it (myself included).  It's just not a very good song.

I just think its a DT song that is fairly different than what they are known for so it's bound to get some dislike

I feel this way about most of FII. The material isn’t bad, it just doesn’t sound much like DT.
It sounds like, "ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk." Instead of the more pleasing kick drum sound of, "gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk."

And I think that amplifies it even more.  Like I Walk Besides You got some flak for being a more poppy non DT sounding song, but it doesn't get the hate YNM gets and it's probably because people generally enjoy 8VM moreso than FII.

I like YNM a LOT more than IWBY.  IWBY is down in the bottom 10 with "Innocence Faded."  All that isn't to say that I love YNM.  It's fine.  Not bad, but certainly below average (of course, "average" DT songs beat out everything on a lot of bands' "best of" albums).

I thought one thing they could be planning that would make Octavarium a far-fetched idea is that they move through their discography chronologically, playing one song from every album. Then again, they have done that same thing at least on two tours before, so I don't consider this to be a very likely option.

Let's hope not. That kind of set list can work once in a very great while, like for an anniversary show, but as a regular thing, it's a bad idea.

I already thought Octavarium was a longshot, given its length.  But given what they are planning, I think it is even more of a longshot now.  But:  (1) that's all I'll say on that; and (2) I could be wrong.

20+ min epic confirmed for the new album :tup
... and for the new tour, of course, right? :tup
I second that. Really it was the first thing that crossed my mind, because normally we get, at most, one big epic for every tour. So I'm betting this the reason behind Bosk's observation. Or maybe DT is planning to pick at least one song from each of the older albums, which will lead to choice shorter songs. Let's see.

I think picking at least one song from each album for the setlist is a great idea, like they did for the summer tour of 2011, before ADTOE was released. I like it when bands represent their whole catalog and not just a couple of fan favorite albums live.

It could also be some sort of "compensation" for the last two tours, where an entire album took away half the show, and another one literally made up the whole show.

That would make sense, but imagine the following: If DT14 were to be so good that there were all killers and no fillers, you'd want to hear the entire record, would you? On the other note, the prospect of having at least one long piece on it (or more) makes me excited

Wow, I never notice they did that!.. Maybe because the songs weren't in chronological order, but I did't pay attention to that detail.. But yeah, if they do something like that it'd be cool (and not again like Score or the 2015 tour -these two were fine, but it'd feel a bit predictable if they repeat that very setlist structure so soon-)... although I think they should skip the I&W songs again..


Also, even if the new album has an instrumental and they include it in the set, I hope they play another instrumental... 1) because that would give a hypothetical second and very needed respite to James' voice and 2) because the only options if we exclude the ones they've already played with MM, would be Stream and Erotomania, which I consider to be excellent DT tracks (not counting FAS either, given its nature)..

But I agree that any of the 6 songs of the final results would be great to see live.. Haven't seen any of them yet,... well, except TGP in the Shattered Fortress event, but not the same obviously..

Still, I'm puzzled by the "given what they are PLANNING" live. Was playing live Illumination Theory a "plan"? sure, you can say so, but the real planning for that tour was having the Awake and Scenes anniversary, playing Illumination Theory was not a "plan" anymore than playing Octvarium or In the Presence of Enemies was.

Having Bosk saying that they are PLANNING something makes me think it's something more than the standard "New songs including the big epic and some classics" tour.

During ADToE tour, they played the whole album, didn't they? The songs that were played by concert changed each night, but in the end, they played all the songs. I like this ideia, cause you have the chance to play every song from the new record and vary the setlist throughout the tour.

1- Disappear
2- Take Away My Pain
3- The Killing Hand

These are my must.

4- The Glass Prison
5- In The Presence Of Enemies (I and II)

And I don't care full Octavarium but I hope I'll hear at least "Razor's Edge" section again but I don't think DT tends to do medleys anymore after MP leaving.

Hmmm ...

1. The Glass Prison. The first DT song I saw live (my first concert was the SDOIT tour). Haven't seen it since.  :metal
2. About to Crash (reprise) + Losing Time (is this allowed? Please? Can't have one without the other!  :angel:)
3. Learning to Live. They should finish with this, JP soloing in the end, and people singing and clapping and we all had the best time of our lives  :heart

Honorable mentions:
The song I like the most from DT14  ;D
Just Let Me Breathe! Preferably with some artistic tweaks and improv a'la OIAL (that rockin' mid section is a-w-e-s-o-m-e!)

Don't really understand the "be realistic" thing... There's like two DT songs ever that aren't likely choices for them to play live, and even those aren't that far of a stretch that they might.

But anyway...

- The Killing Hand
- Octavarium
- Light Fuse and Get Away

- Anna Lee
- In the Presence of Enemies

1. Home
2. Lines in the Sand
3. A Nightmare to Remember

My other two would be In the Name of God and Voices. I hooe this is still open for ‘voting’. This was harder than I thought, most of my potential choices are over 10 minutes long and I ruled out anything Mangini has played in front of an audience.

I can't think of another highly unlikely song to be played (or played again) other than The Best of Times..

I mean, for sure there are certain songs with less chances than others.. Honor Thy Father, Never Enough, You Not Me, Take Away My Pain, Status Seeker, TOWHTSTS, Light Fuse and Get Away (and I hope they're on the same page with me, also New Millenium and Just Let me Breathe)... come to mind... But I guess all of these still have very good chances to be played live at least once in one of the future tours..

1. Glass Prison
If you have a song like this you should play it. For me this is clearly the song that makes most sense to consider as a "hit" and should be played as such. Fans love it and it works really well for people who likes metal but aren't very excited about progressive metal. This song is usually how I introduce DT.
2. Octavarium
This is their true masterpiece in my mind. The song is gorgeous and one hell of a emotional rollercoaster live. Seen it once and been to their shows about 10 times, and that is just crazy considering how fantastic this is.
3. The Count of Tuscany
Just the ending alone makes it worth playing live. The crowd singing along and the spacey middle section is fantastic.

4. (close 3) Illumination Theory
Not a favorite on CD but live I would argue it's one of their best. Such a crowd pleaser and the energy is sooooo good!  :metal
