Great thread, especially since the band will get the info.

1. Glass Prison. Just a great song live
2. Killing Hand. Amazing live classic
3. Burning my Soul. Been way too long since I've heard this live.

4. Cover my eyes. Accoustic seems better than electric for this song.

As an observation, I've been a fan since Awake and seen every album tour plus the QR tour, Gigantour, etc and DT has always been great about plating their catalog that there really isn't any bucket list song for me. The last one was Raise the Knife. Rush had Jacobs Ladder and the Camera Eye. So this was tough for me to answer.

1. Octavarium - my favourite dt song ,fan favourite and is rarely played live .
2. The count of Tuscany - just an overall great epic that hasn’t been played in North America in quite some time .
3.in the presence of enemies I & II - would be a great to hear these played live ,even as a medley .

Honourable mention :

Wither- would be somewhat of a different song in the set list which could allow us fans to “cleanse our pallets “ from the intense dt moments

Disappear - would plainly just like to hear it live

I know ARoP is not well liked here from what I remember, but I think it would be really cool to see them play it live. It's just a solid rocker with a great chorus... I guess I could post that in the controversial opinion thread  :lol

The only song I could honestly post here for not having seen yet is 6:00. One of my favorites off of Awake and it's eluded me all these years.

The Glass Prison
Octavarium
Stream Of Consciousness

It would be cool to see Octavarium as an encore. They did that last tour with A Change Of Seasons, so Octavarium is quite a possibilty from here on out setlist speaking, and with this rumoured "DOT" being a spiritual sequel (or something like that), the possibilty of it being played is much more likely. Also with speculations, if they so happen to play Scenes in its entirety I predict the setlist structure would be something like this.

Set I:
TBA
TBA
Older Track
TBA
TBA
Older track
TBA
Older Track

Set II:
SFOAM

Encore:
Octavarium

Of course, everything is up to debate and specutations untill we hear and see the real deal in March. So stocked to be the first date of the DOT tour!!! I'll keep you guys up to date with the setlist on March 20 when the tour starts.

That's an incredibly long show. When I saw them on the original SFAM tour, they played the album, then did a three song encore of Peruvian Skies, Paradigm Shift and an I&W medley. You're looking at a good 1/5 to 2 hours before even getting to SFAM.

Yeah, if it means fitting all Scenes From A Memory, a 70 minute set two is quite the feet. But, if I remember correctly, Set II on the Along For A Ride Tour exceeded or went close to the 70-minute mark with the Second-Half of Awake + Illumination Theory. How long was Set I??? 60 Mins if remember correctly. Let's speculate the new DT albums song lengths equal that of the self-titled except the 20-minute epic. A 60 minute Set I, a 70 minute plus set II, and finally a 24-minute encore seems reasonable; not too shabby. If of course, SFAM gets played in its entirety, which is extremely likely, to be honest. They did a 20 minute set for its 15th anniversary, it would be a missed opportunity not celebrating a career-defining album on its 20th anniversary. We'll just have to wait and see what happens. My setlist chart is based on DTs current setlist tendencies, and to my eyes, this is prob the setlist we're getting (excluding Octavarium).

Ahhh this is good one! In The Name of God! I feel Breaking All Illusions will have to be somewhere on the setlist. It's such a great track, and an awesome Set I closer. It would be nice to see a classic close Set I like In The Name of God though.

Off topic somewhat but IMO if set 2 is dedicated to SFAM then the Encore simply HAS to be Metropolis Part 1. Even if it has been played time and time again.

1. Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence (does that count? 😆). It's a masterpiece. I obviously understand why they split it up but that has definitely caused people to overlook the song as a whole. I'm really glad they kept it as 1 track on Score and if I could see it played live in it's entirety, one if my dreams as a fan would come true.

2. Octavarium - other than Six Degrees, I think this is DTs most diverse song. Musically it takes me on a journey and it's a journey that I really love. It's strange, it literally makes me feel like I'm moving through physical space. Like the song is a destination where I have fond memories. I don't see any of their other songs in a visual sense like I do with this track. Would be another dream come true as a fan.

3. The Count Of Tuscany - the song has much energy and beauty. I just hope that if I ever get to see it live they fix the tempo of the click at the end - I've seen videos of then playing it live with MM and that ending seems so slow which creates a lack of energy and kind of sucks the emotion out of the most emotional part.

Honorable mention

4. These Walls - this song rips live. I've seen them play it twice and both times it was a concert highlight for me.

5. The Great Debate - a song I wasn't particularly fond of until I saw it live. This is another one of those songs that every fan needs to see live. It's fantastic.

The glass prison (blame myself for it, but never experienced that song live)
Stream of consciousness (give James a break and let us enjoy the epic ending)
Breaking all Illusions (never get enough of that song)
------------------------------
I like the idea of the last tour: a mix of songs from different albums then a complete album (Scenes in this case)
and a grand finale:
Octavarium.

I'd go hope happy  :P

The Killing Hand
Eve
Don't Look Past Me

I realise they played DLPM last tour, but it was only like 3 shows, and only in the USA. I'd like to see it as a regular on a tour. Killing Hand is a top 3 DT song for me, so I'd LOVE to see that. Eve is just really great, and they haven't played it regularly since I&W, haven't played it at all since FII... It'd be great to see. :)

I'd put Lines In The Sand and In The Presence Of Enemies in my honourable mentions. Lines In The Sand was played by Sons Of Apollo recently, so while it's still on the bucket list to hear DT play live, there are others that are more immediate. Presence Of Enemies is just a fun one that I'd love to hear, which I think is an unlikely one.

1. The Glass Prison

Absolute monster of a song, long overdue for a comeback. This is my number 1 pick by a considerable margin and will be until such time it finally gets played again.

2. The Killing Hand

One of my favourite early-era DT songs that I am yet to experience in a live setting. I particularly like the version that's on WD&DR but I appreciate all the other slightly different versions that exist, such as LATM and the version that's on one of the '96 bootlegs (during the FII tour).

3. A New Beginning

Mainly because I'd like to hear it live in a standalone context, I think it's one of the few songs on the Astonishing with the potential to work just as well by itself, especially with that killer outro solo.

I just listened to The Great Debate last night, from Happy Holidays. Wow! That song translates to a live version really well. James is great and Jordan's intro is extended from the studio version, and excellent. Good Choice!

I continue to be baffled by the infatuation with Eve and DLPM.  DLPM did NOT work well when they did it last year, and it wasn't received well.  Hence why they stopped playing it (and it was a reject pile song anyway).  Eve was, for all intents and purposes, a Kevin Moore solo piece, and I'd be shocked if they ever play it again.

I mean...it was fine as filler in those early shows -- and who doesn't like a good James Joyce moo-cow snippet? -- but I'd think we're more likely to hear "Vital Star" or "Two Far" (or maybe "Particle E. Motion").

For a big sing-along with lights shining on the crowd!

3. Octavarium
For the encore... if they're not too tired!

But given what they are planning

Touring with an opening act with, therefore, less time to play?
Playing the entire new album? (daring move, after The Astonishing)
Playing SFAM? (unlikely, they're not gonna become an anniversaries band)

Just want to revisit this now that I can say what they are doing.  MirrorMask won and didn't even know it!

Also, since people still keep suggesting songs, did you guys not pick up on the part where I said I already submitted the list from this thread to the band?

Maybe it's like that Arrested Development scene:

Michael: I don’t believe this. Did you guys not read the letter?
Narrator: None of them had read past the word “unfrozen.”

Also: will there be a difference in the Scenes From a Memory portions compared to the 2000 and 2005 performances? As in: will they be adding actors, stage props, videos? Will there be a live hypnotherapist?
