I attended thier show in LA, at The Nokia Theater, on 9/25. I was amazed by the variety in their set list. Their set list included at least one song from 8 of their 11 albums! This made me think, if I got to set up a Dream Theater concert, what would be the ultimate set list? I thought it would be interseting to put some rules to it.
1. The set list must contain only one song from each of their 11 albums (A Changes of Seasons, not included)
2. The songs can be arranged in any order you want, but in such a way that would produce the best overall flow.
3. In Dream Theater tradition, it must have a dramatic begining and epic ending.
4. The encore can be any song from any album, regardless if you've already used a track from that album, in fact since this is the Ultimate Dream Theater show, go ahead and add a second encore.
5. Try to be respectful of our beloved musicians try keep the set to around 2 hours, please.
1. The Root of All Evil
3. Constant Motion
4. Under a Glass Moon
5. Only a Matter of Time
6. Bridges in the Sky
8. Lines in the Sand
9. A Rite of Passage
10. Caught in a Web
11. In the Name of God
12. As I am
