Dream Alter Bridge setlist

Post by maximzub »

I'm really surprised to find that this wasn't a topic already on a freaking Alter Bridge forum!

Anyway, I kind of specialize in making dream concerts come to life (pun intended). I take the best possible live recordings of my favorite songs, and use REAPER to edit them together into one concert. I've done this for Volbeat and Metallica, and my next one is going to be for Alter Bridge. So far, here's my working setlist:

1. The Writing On The Wall
2. Come To Life
3. I Know It Hurts
4. Cry Of Achilles
5. Native Son
6. The Uninvited
7. White Knuckles
8. Shed My Skin
9. Waters Rising
10. Crows On A Wire
11. All Ends Well (acoustic)
12. Watch Over You (acoustic)
--Parallax Orchestra joins in--
13. Slip To The Void
14. Addicted To Pain
15. The End Is Here
16. Fortress
17. In Loving Memory
18. Ties That Bind
19. The Last Hero
20. Words Darker Than Their Wings
--Parallax Orchestra out--
21. Isolation
22. Blackbird
23. Metalingus
Encore:
24. Godspeed
--Parallax Orchestra in--
25. Open Your Eyes

I have yet to hear a good number of their songs, so this will most likely change until June, when I plan to start making the "virtual festival" featuring my dream setlists of 10 bands. (Last year, I did the same, but only with a few bands. The rest of the shows from the festival were basically shortened versions of their old shows, and that's what I did with Alter Bridge because I didn't know them well.)

Would you like me to make your dream setlist? Just post a reply to this, and I will try to find the best live versions (or, if the song hasn't been played live, I can make fake live versions), and make your dream concert come true!

Thanks!

There's always been threads of dream setlists or conversations about them in the past. Not so much recently, since, well. there's a pandemic going on and concerts are a no go. I'll probably create of mine at a later time.

Anything as long as it has Walking on the Sky. And a cover of Absolute Beginners by Bowie.

I love Alter Bridge and I love lists! This show is roughly 2 hours and 30 mins. I had a few songs I really wanted to include like Burn It Down with Mark on vocals, Coeur D Alene, Before Tomorrow Comes and Wonderful Life acoustic, Down To My Last, Buried Alive and Brand New Start. But they have so many amazing songs, it is hard to choose.

Intro: One Life
1. Clear Horizon
2. Ties That Bind
3. Poison In Your Veins
4. I Know It Hurts
5. Ghosts Of Days Gone By
6. The Last Hero
7. Lover
8. Broken Wings [Split between Mark and Myles on vocals]
9. Godspeed
10. Life Must Go On [Acoustic]
11. In Loving Memory [Acoustic]
12. Watch Over You [Acoustic]
13. Rise Today [First Half Acoustic]
14. Forever Falling
15. Cry Of Achilles
16. Shed My Skin
17. Waters Rising
18. Fortress
19. Walking On The Sky
20. Calm The Fire
21. Blackbird
22. Metalingus
----
23. Slip To The Void
24. Words Darker Than Their Wings
25. Isolation
26. Addicted To Pain
---
27. The End Is Here
28. Open Your Eyes

Me too!

Would you mind if I changed the order a bit? I'll try to make it so that the songs in the same tuning line up as much as possible, and also to put the orchestra songs all together. I promise I'll still open with Clear Horizon and close with Open Your Eyes.

Of course! Based on what you've posted the only change I'd make is "Shed My Skin" would be absolutely epic with an Orchestra. It and Calm The Fire are the two tracks I feel were missed opportunities by not having them in the set.

I unfortunately do not know how to record orchestra sounds over a song. I'll learn how someday, though.

Don't know about a dream set, but I would love to hear Walking on the Sky and some of the other new stuff live.
