^^ There's a 'technically' for Repentance since you did see that one, just with a cover band :lol

I'd like to see it performed with a singer. :P

1. Octavarium: Saw it live only once, the only DT show I could drag my father to.
2. In the Name of God: The only time I saw it live, Jordan's keyboards fried. I'm not joking.
3. Misunderstood: great number in itself, plus I'm interested in Jordan's possible new tech tricks in the outro

4. You Not Me. I shit you not, I have been lucky enough to see Dream Theater many times in the last 20 years (I'm 14 months away from the 20th anniversary of my first DT show), so I really have seen everything I really wanted to see. It's time to break the stigma about this song which flies by in 5 minutes anyway.

Funny coincidence. If I'm assuming right, I missed that very show breaking my car on my road to the venue. The only DT tour I've missed in my life.

I also haven't seen Behind the Veil or Surrender to Reason, and would love to

Neither has anyone else.


Reading some of the other responses, I didn't realize that Octavarium hasn't been played since the RCMH show.  I think I'll swap it for Scarred on my list since I've seen that more recently.

1 - Octavarium - Never had a chance to see this masterpiece live.
2 - Beyond This Life - One of my favorite DT songs and I've never seen it live either.
3 - The Glass Prison - 6DOIT is my favorite album, so this fits well.

HM:
Blind Faith.
Raise the Knife - Unlikely, but I love it.

Top 5 so far (using my own points system and disregarding posts for people who merely listed and did not rank):
1.  Octavarium
2.  The Killing Hand
3.  The Glass Prison
4.  Disappear
5.  In the Name of God

#4 is surprising.

Why did you find it surprising? It is a great song.

Not for me, I got to see Mikael Ňkerfeldt sing it with the mic off  :biggrin: and also got to see MP's TSF do it too

I have that on the Fan Club CD. To me, instead of Akerfeldt singing a verse, I thought it would've been a lot cooler if he read the spoken word stuff while the band played.

There's an audio recording of the full song?  I knew there was the clip in the CHaos in Motion DVD that showed it like it went on as expected (since they did the verse again with the MIC working).

1.  Octavarium

1. The killing hand (as 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of WDADU)
2. The glass prison (this recalls to the 'Mangini era, heavy' tour setlist thread)
3. The best of times (i know.. i know.. but if I could hear only JP's final solo live It would make my day)

Oh, I know it's a great song.  I love it.  But that does not mean that it is a fan favorite for appearing in a live set.  I would not expect it to be in high demand, despite being well-liked.

1. "Surrender to reason"
2. "Blind faith" (I had the pleasure of hearing it at my first show ten years ago, and would love to have another chance.)
3. "Take away my pain" (I agree with you, bosk. It's so beautiful.)

There's an audio recording of the full song?  I knew there was the clip in the CHaos in Motion DVD that showed it like it went on as expected (since they did the verse again with the MIC working).
Yes. It was released on the final fan-club CD in 2008. You can read about it here:

1. Sacrificed Sons. IMO, Labrie's best lyrics and a top tier DT song.
2. Stream of Consciousness. Amazing instrumental.
3. Lie. A great song and a good way to acknowledge Awake's 25th anniversary.

Honorable mentions
1. Beneath The Surface. DT's best ballad to date.
2. A Change of Seasons. My 2nd favorite DT song. The only reason it's in honorable mentions is due to length.

1. The glass Prison - I would love to hear MM on this!
2. A Nightmare to Remember - since the drummerís audiction, the same above.
3. Beyond this life (with extended solo) - just to see this great song again and some improvisation.
Honorable mentions:
4. Surrender to Reason - to complete the MM era songs live.
5. Stream of Counciousness - I agree, great instrumental.

1.  The Razor's Edge.
I don't need all of 8vm.  Alternate this as the closer for the concert proper and the encore.  Has the emotional IT needed at the end of a show. 

2.  Misunderstood.  Saw this in DC back in '08.  Memories of....the light blue lighting during the second set of verses creating a wonderful vibe, before being blasted away by the  flood of lights at the start of the second chorus.  Still gives me chills.  It went from being somewhat of a 'filler' track (due to the excellence of Disc2) to being one of my favorites after that night.
(There's also nothing wrong with cutting out a minute or so of the ending.)

3.  Here's something totally different......the intro for 'Saviour in the Square' followed by 'Our New World'.  Someone put these two pieces together on youtube when TA first came out, and I've put these two pieces together ever since.

Optional:  In The Name of God, This Is The Life

1. Stream of Consciousness - My favorite instrumental of theirs. Would love to see how Manginis drums will be in the song. Plus that awesome ending unison.

2. Blind Faith - The intro, the vocals, and the overall instrumental I feel should be played live again.

3. The Ministry of Lost Souls - Now this would be nice to bring out this time. JLB could knock it out of the park live now. Plus the amazing instrumental section.

HM:
1. Saviour In The Square/When Your Time Has Come - these two would be nice as well, if they don't do the Goodnight Kiss/Solitary Shell combo.

2. Chosen - This really needs to played again. It was amazing on The Astonishing tour. I could see this as an encore song.


Also, this depends on how DT14 sounds, and the length of those tracks. Either way though, I'd be happy with any song other than Pull Me Under and As I Am.

edit: I decided that Blind Faith would be a better choice.

1. Surrender to Reason - because it's a beautiful song that fits JLB's comfort zone the past tours, just like BAI. And I would love to see how they do the wicked instrumental.

2. In The Presence of Enemies Pt. 2 - I am surprised by how this song grew on me the past year to the point that I hear some "Astonishing" vibe in a lot of parts. I think Mangini would sound great in this song, judging by how he did TDEN. If JLB nails the high "Angels fall...," I would clap really hard. LOL

3. Chosen - This should alternate with TSCO every other tour as THE ballad of the night.

Octavarium.  For obvious reasons
Behind the Veil.  A great rocker
Chosen. One of DT's best songs

 HM,
ITPOE Part 1.  This would make a great concert opener
Ravenskill. This song has great riffs and dynamics

1. Octavarium. Probably my favorite epic, enough said.
2. The Glass Prison. Should be a blast live.
3. In The Name Of God. I just love this song
4. In The Presense Of Enemies (whole thing). Criminally underrated.
5. A Nightmare To Remember. I believe they haven't played this live since the BC&SL tour.

1. Blind Faith: It's my favorite song of them and while I have seen them play it live, I can't get enough of it.
2. Lifting Shadows off a Dream: This song is top 10 for me, I don't think I've seen it live and I think it would make for a great ballad break.
3. Raising the Knife: Bring this live please, it's such a great song.

These arenít necessarily my favourite songs as most of them were played on the last 3 tours with big chunks of Awake, Scenes and I&W plus most of the post Portnoy stuff. Iím going for 2 fan faves that havenít been heard in a long time:

1) The Glass Prison
2) The Killing Hand

Iím also going to go selfishly for a song that Iíve never heard live as I missed the tour for that album for some reason that I canít remember:

3) Octavarium

No shit. Whatever the setlist for the next tour will be, if there's 8VM in there, I'm definitely buying the tickets.

Although who am I kidding, I'm buying the tickets anyway, it's been three years since I've last seen DT. :lol
