I hope they don't replace any of the songs from the new album, it's that album they're promoting after all. I would replace Bridges, Endless Sacrifice and 6:00.

If they replace any song from the new album, it'll likely be with a different song from the new album.
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related

It sounds like, "ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk." Instead of the more pleasing kick drum sound of, "gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk."

I wish they'll do another mini acoustic set like they did back in ADTOE tour with Disappear and Out Of Reach.

If I had to sit through the excruciating Out Of Reach to also get Disappear, then I would, and it'd be especially cool in an acoustic type setting. I would not be happy if they gave a full song slot to Out Of Reach at a show though.

In the video JP says "we're playing some NEW music that we've never played live before." My guess is that probably means songs from AVFTTOTW, maybe DOT.

And Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate it!

It could very well be that they drop About to Crash and 6:00 and I will be so pleased if they change those with other songs from those particular albums. Lets say, The Glass Prison and Voices. Although it will be hard to pick songs that LaBrie is still able to sing. And Voices will probably not be in this area. I think they will keep The Ministry of Lost Souls (was the high of last Tour, next to The Count) but if they don't, I hope it will be Prophets of War, that fills the void.

Yeah, I think Voices won't return to the setlist because it's so vocally challenging (I don't think they're willing to abridge it to skip the most difficult vocal section), but I also think TGP is also off the table - too challenging for JP to play cleanly enough to where he'd be willing to add it to the setlist.

Given that they're doing a second run through Europe and they've talked about spending a lot of 2023 touring, I would expect another run through North America will happen, especially if there's some changes to the setlist as JP says there will be.
As 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.

Has JP ever dropped a song before because it was too difficult to play cleanly? I just can't see him holding back an awesome song like TGP from a future setlist for that reason.

I would hope so, I really enjoyed the last tour. Hell I'll just be happy to see them.

It has been said for a while now that The Glass Prison has been avoided specifically for that reason.
I don't know if there is any official reference to that, though.

If you see footage from the Gigantour (2005, and if I'm not mistaken they've not played it since) you can notice JP using alternate picking for the intro instead of sweep picking. I think the main factor was the tempo being faster because MP used to do that during lives.

Well, the 8V tour in '06, but yeah, the same tour cycle.

Yep, that tour started with the European summer leg (first time I saw them live, June 23rd 2005 with Labyrinth and Angra opening), and last time TGP was played was in Wallingford, CT on March 29th 2006.

I can see him doing it for that reason. I mean, just the fact that (as has been pointed out), it hasn't been played for 16 years now says something, even if unspoken.

I'm not aware of any song being ignored or dropped for that reason, but I do know that JP is very particular about playing cleanly, and I know he has publicly regretted copying what JR does from 2:22-2:52 in TGP which was a real struggle for him to perform live. And I'm almost positive he also struggled a lot with the instrumental section in BF where he doubled JR from about 7:56-8:23. That's why I don't think either of those songs will be played again as long as JP is in control of the setlist.

Me. They saw my cover of Beneath the Surface on YouTube after 7 years and thought Id be a good fit with my solo acoustic shows. Personally, I am packing it, but if DT have faith in me, well, I gotta answer the call.

In all seriousness, no, I dont think its been confirmed as yet.

Nothing official, but it seems like SOA don't have any plans to continue anytime soon...

Probably due to Derek's glowing personality.

It's such a great personnel lineup but I found the songs a little lackluster. Sometimes those supergroups underperform expectations by a mile. Chickenfoot comes to mind along with Sons of Apollo. The songs were not bad by any means, but on paper I expected better songwriting.

It boggles the mind how DT- a supergroup in its own way- manages to write its best material after 10 albums and 25 years.

It has always been the case.

I think Winery Dogs had 1 brilliant album (first one). Flying Colors too. The following albums in each case were nowhere near as good, in my humble opinion, but both debuts were gems.
