I wouldn't be suprised if they change it up a little bit for some of the shows, Opeth is usually pretty good about that kind of thing.

But its a guaranteed awesome show no matter what they play anyways :rocker:

Hopefully they don't change April Ethereal and The Moor for the NYC show

I would prefer other songs from the other albums.

I think my ideal for the second part of the set (one song from each album)

Forest of October
Night and the Silent Water
When
Face of Melinda
Master's Apprentices
In My Time of Need
Reverie/Harlequin Forest
Lotus Eater

EDIT: and then, of course, doing Demon of the Fall to close things out

I mean it's 20 years since the band has been in existence and i thought for sure they were going to finallly finally play BLACK ROSE IMMORTAL and still not doing it. I hope they at least rehearsed it cause if they did i'm gonna get a pow-wow going with all the rest of the VIP's and at the meet and greet we have to beg Mike and the gang to finally pull it out. I love Advent but it's not Black Rose and it's FUCKING TIME to take it out of the bag and play it and what better than NYC. Night and the Silent Water is great as well but again not Black Rose. I bought the VIP ticket thinking for ABSOLUTELY FUCKING SURE it would finally be played. If they didn't rehearse it still an awesome setlist. April Ethereal is perfect since most of these concerts are taking place in April. Come on I know I am not the only one that wants to hear Black Rose live.

If I had to choose a song from each album, it would probably go something like this:

Twilight is my Robe
To Bid You Farewell
April Ethereal
Moonlapse Vertigo
A Fair Judgement
Hope Leaves
Reverie/Harlequin Forest
Lotus Eater

personally, I would have rather heard the entire Still Life album, but BWP is still an incredible choice to hear in it's entirety. Cannot wait for Wednesday, it's going to be one hell of a show.

I will be quite happy if they stick with this. Only seen 2 before of the 8 in the second set. Have been praying for Wreath and Harlequin...AE and The Moor are the icing on the cake.

Never seen Harvest or Funeral Portrait either...beyond psyched for those.:party:

It was really a tough decision for me deciding not to go to the LA show. BWP is my least favorite Opeth record, but I'm dying to see them play four songs, Twilight is My Robe, Apostle in Triumph, Karma and The Amen Corner. I'm just thankful they did not play Twilight is My Robe and Karma, or I'd be one sad puppy and really been regretting my decision not to go.

Here's my desired setlist for the XX Tour:

Play any album in its entirety besides of one Steven Wilson produced (preferably one of the first four Opeth records)

Twilight is My Robe
Black Rose Immortal
Karma
The Moor
The Funeral Portrait
By the Pain I See in Others
To Rid the Disease
The Baying of the Hounds
Burden

I agree about BRI, but I think Mikael hates most songs on Morningrise so it's doubtful we'll ever hear it.

London show tonight, bitches.

I'm pretty happy with their selections from the other albums. I would probably have preferred other selections in place of 'April Ethereal', 'Harlequin Forest' and 'The Lotus Eater', purely because they played all three of those last year on the Progressive Nation tour, so it would have been nice to get something different, but never mind.

And I'm pleased 'Demon of The Fall' hasn't been put back in. If Opeth were ever in danger of over-playing a song, that's the one.

Compared to the last full set I saw from them (the 'Roundhouse Tapes' show back in 2006), this is completely different. Only one song the same. So very happy in that sense.

It'll be interesting to compare this set to their Summer festival sets. I'll probably see them twice this Summer, assuming running orders work in their favour, so it'll be interesting to see what they drop/change.


I will be buying the special London t-shirt tonight, for sure. But I won't be buying the new version of 'Blackwater Park'. What the hell are they playing at with this? Why bring out a new special edition and leave off the two bonus tracks?! Now the only reason to buy it for people who already have the album is the needless live song.
