2 hours is actually much longer than what we were getting before. For Black Clouds, DT only did the 80 minute Progressive Nation shows in the US :(

According to 2 separate fans calculations, the average DT song is....
8 minutes 48 seconds. Based on their first 10 studio albums (count 6DOIT as one song, SFAM as twelve songs and ITPOE as two songs).
Round up to 9 minutes and see how many songs they can do in a full 120 minutes. Approximately 13 songs with 3 minutes to spare. 3 minutes could easily be the length of a pop song that doesn't take near the demand of most any 3 minutes of most any DT song.
If you take 15 minutes for breaks then 105 minutes of demanding, sublime music averages 11 songs with 2 pop songs to spare.
The Korean show set list MINUS 2 instrumental solos and a cover song.
1. Bridges in the Sky
3. Build Me Up, Break Me Down
5. The Root of All Evil
6. A Fortune in Lies
8. The Silent Man
9. Beneath the Surface
10. On the Backs of Angels
11. War Inside My Head
12. The Test that Stumped Them All
13. The Spirit Carries On
14. Breaking All Illusions
15. Pull Me Under
With two instrumentals and a cover song it seems like the show would have been longer then "2 hours". I wasn't at the show, but that seems like a fair amount if the price is fair and it's quality live music.
Loosing their mojo? I haven't seen them live in awhile, but ADToE is worthy of "their best album yet argument" and with a grammy nomination.

Ok...deep breath here...calm down.
Because I seriously wanted to issue a beatdown to the TC when i saw the set list he enjoyed.
I'm about to create a topic requesting some songs which is probably very presumptuous and forward of me but I need to hear 6:00 and Caught in a Web before I die. The rest of the set was sick but to hear just one of these. I actually thought they ceased playing 6:00 for some reason. I digress...
The one thing I am going to join in the criticism of DT was what I got for the Meet & Greet. Cue up, picture, cue up get something signed with literally less than 1-2 minutes per member to say something, collect your goodies, go sit in your front two row seats. I am of a mind that it would have been nice to have like a modest deal where you could mingle with the band a bit or maybe have a Q&A session. For that price I do. The one thing I respect is that they likely do not want too much interaction (get a flu bug or something) and there will always be one or more "that guys" that will be...difficult to be around. I do not feel shorted. No. Because being that close at their concert balanced it out but it could have been a bit more and I would have appreciated it.
But other than that - to come here and say that they are losing that "kick"? How pompous and rude. We all have opinions and you are entitled to yours but for a band that is so fan-focused, to come here and say that was inappropriate. I for one would edit that post if I were you.

I understand that these days, shows tend to be short but then again, Van Halen doesn' thave many songs over ten minutes, right?.. so what I am saying is that DT used to play 3- 3:30 hour show and I miss those days when they played long and sometimes playing Metallica and Deep Purple.
Like I said, Mangini was manic and I have never seen that many drums, cymbals, tom toms and you name it, all those percussions hard to name and when I first see the stage, it was ALL drum set and the rest of the band members looked like dwarves against that gigantic drum stadium! I bet the total number of places you can bang your drum stick on was over 50... somebody please count number and tell us!

You can't be serious, DTOE is a pure Musical & Lyrical sensation. I have all DT albums and would have to rate the latest stuff up near the top.
I would pay to see these guys for a 1 hour concert if Australia could only get a gig.
