Last hour of the set is 3 songs?! Lmao love that idea. 2 of my top 10 DT songs and some left field surprises here. If theyíre gonna play 10 songs, these are 10 fucking great choices.

I really believe 6:00, ES, IM and AtC all have the potential to be swapped out nightly. Will be curious if thatís the case! Canít wait for the Florida shows!
DT hasn't swapped out more than one song on a nightly basis since Portnoy was in the band.

They did for the ADTOE tour.

And I donít necessarily mean all of them would be swapped, but if any songs had the potential to be swapped, itíd be those imo.

Aside from the new songs I'm very meh with the rest of the set. Seen them all many times. Unless they switch it up some on night two, it'll be only one show for me in NJ.

Seems odd to me that they'd completely ignore their two most universally loved releases (I&W and SFAM).  Wanted to give others some love I guess.

ODD????????? They just played them in entirety last two tours. :facepalm:

So disappoting setlist. Playing 3 epics in a row... Really?

This is where I miss Portnoy or at least his setlist ideas.

I concur here. I&W and SFAM have been hammered at live shows in the last 5-10 years.

The last few tours with MP, they played 8-10 songs a night, lots of times playing songs like ANtR, TCoT, and other 10 min songs in the same night.

When I was told what the setlist would be last week, I was in awe :) Now I can finally talk about it since it's been played :)

The Count is back!

* The Alien
* 6:00
* Awaken The Master
* Endless Sacrifice
* Bridges In The Sky
* Invisible Monster
* About To Crash
* The Ministry Of Lost Souls
* A View From The Top Of The World
* The Count Of Tuscany

Also, No PMU, No Metropolis. No Dance Of Eternity. No Spirit Carries On... all the "staples" you expect to see one or more of are out this tour in favor of tracks that haven't been played in awhile. Honestly, quite satisfying!

I get it, but some fans like me are late to the party and didn't see those shows.  I didn't expect a ton, but more than 0.

What was swapped?

As an example, here are the sets for two consecutive nights at the Luna Park in Argentina (which ended up being used for LALP). 6 songs were swapped from night 1 to 2:

Oh boy... an opening band that cuts the set by an hour and only makes it 10 songs long.
Tuscany encore is a major bummer. I just hope it's better live I guess.
Overall. Great set with a... fine... encore IMO. And way too short.
I'm excited, but it feels lacking.

I will say Iím surprised that only 1/6 older songs are new for this lineup, since theyíve been playing completely new set lists each tour for the most part since MM joined the band. Seems like they really just wanted to play whatever they wanted, and Iím all for that!

Great show and JLB sounded great as well...

Highlights for me were About To Crash, The Ministry of Lost Souls and The Count of Tuscany.

So, static set lists????

Unknown. I was just told what tonight's would be. I could see a song or two being swapped out, but for the most part, since Portnoy left, they have operated with a static setlist with one or two alternates. It makes it easier on the production team, the programming, etc. I could see them throwing in PMU or TSCO at random as those are both something that everyone could play asleep, but I highly doubt that will happen.

DT has been doing static setlists for years. So there's no reason to anticipate anything differently unless we're given additional evidence to consider.

Maybe odd, but a great decision imo and rightly due. When's the last time time this happened, outside of the TA tour?

You can check the rest of the tour there as well, they had an A/B setlist and would change more than a couple songs from night to night, not just for the live album :tup This hasn't happened since then, though.

Forsaken -> Caught in A Web
Under A Glass Moon -> Pull Me Under
And initially Outcry -> Breaking All Illusions

Later on,
The Dark Eternal Night -> The Root of All Evil
As I Am -> Pull Me Under (briefly)

Not to mention every leg had a slightly different setlist

I thought CoT made for an epic encore and (for me) it really rocked live. Much better than I thought it would be based on the album version. Great show! Typical Mesa crowdÖnot super excited, but a big group of us stood the whole time and  :metal :metal :metal. James had a couple of minor hiccups as expected on the first night of the tour, but the band sounded great. JP is simply amazing!!

I thought CoT made for an epic encore and (for me) it really rocked live. Much better than I thought it would be based on the album version. Great show! Typical Mesa crowdÖnot super excited, but a big group of us stood the whole time and  :metal :metal :metal. James had a couple of minor hiccups as expected on the first night of the tour, but the band sounded great. JP is simply amazing!!


Great to hear! Don't wanna bask in negativity over one song that I don't totally love when the entire set is so amazing, so trying to shift myself to an understanding that every song is better live and that my biggest dislike is the Portnoy vocals which won't be there. How did they handle that? Did James just sing that part?

WHAT AN EPIC ENDING!!!

I didn't even look at the time, so didn't get a guess at what would be an encore based on time left. When I heard the first guitar notes, I was all, they're really doing this.

This was an amazing show and an amazing, surprising Setlist.
