A lot of naysayers are eating crow now. They are playing Portnoy written songs.

Awesome setlist, especially A Fortune in Lies. The debut is honestly one of my favorite DT albums, and for a few years I'd been afraid they'd just completely forgotten about it. Aside from "Build Me Up, Break Me Down", there's not a bad song here, or something I feel should be dropped.

Nice of them to pull out rare songs like 6:00 and A Fortune in Lies. Never thought those songs would end up in a set again.

If they're gonna represent a track from Awake, i'd probably prefer it to be Caught in a Web, but 6:00 is definitely cool nonetheless.

They've been playing Caught in a Web since a long time, so I guess it's time to change a little bit...6:00 it's a nice surprise

However, I'd prefer Home instead of The Spirit Carries On...Lost Not Forgotten instead of Build Me Up, Break Me Down...and a song from FII...like Trial of Tears

I saw a video of On The Backs of Angels, which they link the end with War Inside My Head, it's pretty cool, but hearing Petrucci singing Portnoy's part is awkward though.

And I don't see why people would think they'd never play a Portnoy written song. Some of DT's best songs are Portnoy songs, they wouldn't ignore those.

Damn, it looks like Metallica is not the only band who likes to bone their American audiences in the ass by playing awesome stuff in Europe only:lol:

Seriously, how long has it been since 6:00 has been played? I didn't think i'd ever see them pull that out again.

According to statistics of setlist.fm, the last time they played 6:00 was in 2002...for the World Turbulence Tour

10 years is a long time

Great set, I think this is the first time The root of all evil was played since the Octavarium tour. (An first time not an opener.) Could be wrong. A fortune in lies kick ass, so glad they've renewed their interest in When dream and day unite. Maybe they'll whip out the Killing hand later on (despite the fact that modern versions of it haven't been too good.) The test that stumped them all would have me going crazy. Only bad thing about this is The spirit carries on. I hate that song and three ballads in a row is too much. Of course they could stop playing PMU. Maiden hasn't let RTTH stain their set in three years so DT should follow. (I know they hadn't been doing PMU too often recently but most people who go to see DT are die-hard fans that don't need that song.)

I think they played The Spirit Carries On, dedicated to Jordan's mother who passed away Saturday 21st...died at 86

Don't now if Jordan was already flying to Helsinki when this happened.

What a great set set. A little bit of everything and quite a few that haven't done in a while. Nice
