Man, a show with In Loving Memory and Wayward One? Don't tease me like this. It would be really nice if that happens.

Honestly, Simon Dobson posting this really does make up for the lack of board pictures during The Last Hero recordings.

Quick, someone with an advance knowledge of music theory transcribe this and see what it sounds like. My mind is not advanced enough to figure out if this does sound like Fortress.

What can we make of this?:

Golly if that isn't the biggest tease I've ever seen.

#10 could be "Watch Your Words"?
#11 could be "Words Darker Than Their Wings"?
#13 could be "The End is Here"?
#17 could be a medley (e.g., WL/WOY)?

I hate to say that I don't think the really long title is Words. I don't think it's necessarily a single song title at all. Maybe a medley or just something about the arrangement is written there. I'll keep my fingers crossed though.

A few surprises in there to me if that is the setlist and our eyes aren't deceiving us.

No Calm the Fire or Ghost of Days Gone By seems like 2 big omissions to me.

Also surprised at some of the heavier, faster songs like Addicted and Writing on the Wall.

Overall, very, very happy with this set though. You couldn't ask for much more than this list.

Things are happening. I'M SO EXCITED! The clip sounds good. One thing, though. Does that mean that AB may play Waters Rising in its original tuning rather than their current live version?

They've been playing it in the original tuning for the last couple months, haven't they?
