Iíll be interested to see the encore. If they do just tracks from the new album, then why bother having us do that ďWhat songs do you want to hearĒ thing.

Donít get me wrong, Iím pumped to see them next week, that first set just has me kinda shrugging my shoulders.

I can only imagine the encore will consist mostly of D/T. At Wit's End would be a fantastic set closer.

I agree.

It would be simpler = act 1 d/t; act 2 SFAM; encore.

By my calculations, we should be at the encore in about 35-40 minutes. Not sure if my eyes can stay awake that long (it's 1:02am here). I may have to wake up and be surprised tomorrow morning! Argh...

Wow... I'm surprised given that they played I&W to death last tour. I'm hoping it's the only song from that album to appear again.

PMU has been the only "meh" choice for me up to this moment. They could've gone a more interesting route with Under a Glass Moon or something to that extent.

That being said, I'm surprised they played something from I&W. I thought they'd be done with that for a while. Ah, hits will be hits I guess.

Yeah Iím meh on it too, but itís pretty rare for them NOT to play either Metropolis 1 or PMU

This would be kinda lame lol.

I mean, this is a long 2:30 show and the guys are not 35 anymore but I could've definitely used something cooler as an encore.

Iíve seen some pictures on Instagram and it looks like they do indeed have a giant screen behind them. I was curious if theyíd drop the screens like they did on the last tour.

And yeah, Iím kinda underwhelmed by this set. We submitted this giant list of songs directly to the band, and I donít think a single one made it on the set. Still looking forward to Scenes though. Home is one of my favorite songs

Yes disappointing.

I get you absolutely cannot please everyone but man...at least thereís SFaM

Thoughts:
-Missed an opportunity with not playing At Witís End. That song is meant to be played live and a clear fan favorite.
-Odd they didnít play FItL - theyíve hyped the hell out of that song, Iím 99% certain it will show up in other shows
-Feel like Nightmare and Prescence of Enemies were most likely chosen because they are easier on LaBrieís voice. I could probably sing ANtR and get away with it, and Iím no singer...

No Portnoy-centric songs beyond SFaM just as I predicted. Another tour with no Glass Prison.

Lyrics were done by Petrucci. I guess by Portnoy-centric I meant either a 12 step song, or a lyrics by Portnoy. I suppose itís Portnoy-ish with the growls and heaviness lol...

I am pleased with ANTR and ITPOE Pt.I (although I donít quite see why you would do only the first part, especially when itís not the opener) but I agree with the sentiment about nothing from the submitted list. FITL missing is really odd. James said in Prog magazine that PMU was one song he was definite they werenít going to do, he said something like no one needs to hear that one again.

Yeah, I just thought that Volante99 was talking about songs featuring Portnoy prominently, as he referenced SFAM.

On a positive note:

Excited that the big screen is back; backdrop looks cool, excited for the visuals.

Also saw a clip of ďHomeĒ from the show; LaBrie sounds strong!  :metal

Set One - Awesome. Will see that in a heartbeat. Set two - would love to see SFAM. Encore - Ruined it.

Set oneís problem is length. Should be a bit longer to fit in some classic songs (didnít they say thereíd be ďclassicĒ tunes. Kinda count the two songs from pre-D/T as deep cuts.). Another problem, the top two songs on this album after PBD were completely unplayed.

My issue lies in the fact that certain key elements of the shows were cut short. Usually, with the MM shows, you always get the extended guitar solo, a keyboard solo and a drum solo. The only one of these that can be fully accounted for on this setlist is the guitar solo which would be in Through Her Eyes. I donít see the room for a keyboard solo, nor the drum solo outside of being embedded in Pale Blue Dot.
At Witís End wouldíve been the perfect song for an extended solo for JP. S2N wouldíve been great for a bass solo intro and keyboard solo outro. I donít know where MM really can solo though.

Iím looking forward to seeing what can be brought by the rotating setlists. On to tomorrowís show.

I saw the clip too. It was pretty good but ...I felt his pitch was rough on all the high parts. It seems like the power is back  and it's only one clip so we'll see. Excited about this tour though.

I should say itís strong...compared to what I heard during the last I&W anniversary tour. In any event LaBrie takes a few shows to warm up.

I like the set list, I wouldn't mind seeing this show. Pull me under is a safe choice for the encore, but I get it, they need to throw casual fans the bone. Even though SFAM is a legendary album, some people probably don't listen to it in full religiously. And that first set is all "newer" stuff, so Pull me under is perfect way to close things off.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pffSrUymjqQ MM is far too close to Porty here, I was dissappointed. Had to throw up (mentally). He failed. Doesn't suffice at all to me. He failed.

Not necessarily this particular one but some of your comments sail really close to the wind. What was it you said about Portnoy recently? Something about ruining early Dream Theater and you could barely listen to them solely because of him? Now you're 'mentally throwing up' regarding Mangini's performance and telling people "he failed". I think you might need to get a little perspective.

You're right I guess. It's just that I always expect more notes to be played. I don't really know why. Probably because I'm focusing on the technical aspects of music only.  (about the perspective quip: Yes, I'm still happy MM plays these pieces. I'm German though, we always complain, it's part of our constution :D I still don't know if I'm going to attend this tour though) Apart from all that, I do think James does a good job of Home here. (and it's only the first night of the tour)

It's his first time to play the song. Wait when he gets to us here in Asia, it would be miles better already. :p

Why the band always avoiding playing ITPOE pt 2?  It's far better than pt1.

I wouldn't mind if they replace Pull Me Under into ITPOE pt 1 in set 1 and play ITPOE overall as an encore.
