They should do the teasing before announcing there is going to be a live DVD of london's show XD

Kotowboy

It's just the way things are done now.

Like those YouTube videos which pop up on your feed but you can't actually watch them for 3 days  :yeahright I hate those so much.

Oh I can watch it in 3 days ? well tell me then. not now. Now I couldn't care less.

Pretty certain it's the new live show.

Hope the announcement comes tomorrow (or today), I just don't like announcements for an announcement :lol (nothing against DT, it a promotion strategy I don't like).

Cool. I hope that's the actual cover!
Quote from: wkiml on June 08, 2012, 09:06:35 AMwould have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related

All my natural instincts are begging me to stop
But somehow I carry on, heading for the top
A physical absurdity, a tremendous mental game
Helping me understand exactly who I am

Really wicked looking cover. Looking forward to finally getting a new live DT set!

Seems like Paralyzed or Fall Into The Light will be the bonus track. I hope there will be a CD/BD set and not two separate sets for CD/DVD and BD.

I bought Live at Luna Park from iTunes and almost never watch it.

Just watched Luna Park this past Saturday for the first time in a few years and man......I forgot how freaking good they sound on that! And, it's a really good set list. I didn't remember it being that good but I was SO happy me and the kiddos threw it in and watched it. They all were on point and sounded great. JR's mix was a tad low but I got past that given how good the overall sound and vibe was.


When I need a fix of ADTOE, I always listen to the Luna Park audio instead of the actual album.  The live recording sounds better!

Nice mix of the two covers! great job!

Nice!  I always get the Dream Theater live albums.

The bonus track (that Apple Music is indicating) will be Paralyzed I would guess and FITL being in the main set. But what do I know innit.

That's a live recording? :neverusethis:


I feel the same way with LSFNY and SFAM.

I actually made my own version of ADTOE Live by sequencing all 9 songs into album order from the Luna Park discs. It's a veRy good compilation, and i highly recommend it to any fans of ADTOE.

Cool cover! Great way to incorporate both album covers. I do find the title a tad cheesy, but it's better than simply "Live in London" "Live at the Marquee" or "Live at Luna Park" (I give L@B a pass)

Should be pretty easy to do with the canned/repetitious crowd cheering that's used.   ;)
Quote from: BlobVanDam on November 13, 2015, 07:37:14 PMAs 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.

That cover is cool!  We were there and stayed at a hotel right on the right side of that bridge. Great memory!

I'm going to buy this absolutely no question but it's probably the first DT release that I'm not at all excited about.  It's probably because I was at one of the London shows and it was the first DT show I didn't enjoy. James sounded awful, the crowd was dead and just a really disappointing night.  I assume the dvd was shot on the 2nd night so hopefully JLB was better or they can use some trickery to make it sound better.  Hopefully the crowd was more up for it too knowing they were recording.

It does seem like a lifetime ago.  We returned Home  ;D (US) on Feb 24, right before the sh!$ hit the fan!

I was there the 2nd night and James nailed it!  I saw the show 4x and this was the best one!  I wished there was more standing, but the woman next to me was
so stoked, I had a blast!

I saw the show twice and both time JLB was on fire!!  :metal    I'll but this no doubt because even though I have Lives Scenes from New York I'd like to have MM's version as well. I was 'ok' with the opening set list.....I'd have preferred more DoT songs but all in all the DVD will be great.

That's what I was thinking too, they only played 6 tracks from the new album. Then I realized BTFW only has 5 songs from DT12 (FAS technically doesn't count as it's just a tape intro), but that one had a much more varied setlist than the last tour.

I'm sure there is going to be some touch ups on it.  Not that I'm saying JLB sucks or anything like that, I've always thought he was solid live from the shows I've seen, but he's not perfect and I'm going to guess for a live release, they'll make it sound closer to perfect.

Pale Blue Dot from the album is on Apple Music to stream. Out 27th November, not sure if that was mentioned yet.

Before I saw the show on this tour, I was speculating on whether they'd have a special tour shirt merging the 2 album covers together. After seeing the cover art, I realized that should've been it!

Seriously though, really excited!

erwinrafael

Wow, the drums sound even more impressive live.

And I love the title "Distant Memories." It is not cheesy at all, fitting for a tour that got cut short because of a pandemic.
