  1. Personally, any option except a 5-piece Fort Minor. Keep Fort Minor as Mike's solo outlet, and if he does continue FM, then allow him the freedom to integrate as much LP material as he wishes like the 2015/16 FM shows.
  2. July 16 2004, Third Encore
  3. DRAWING IN MY SKIN I GOT MYSELF A TATTOO Expanding on comments I've already made on the hook - there's no way that in their lyrics first approach, they actively came up with repeating the word Invisible. Rather, it feels like a symptom of producing a pop record. Invisible is really the only song where I can see this repetition being outright removed - in every other song the repetition is more integrated into the song structure, and when listening to each song in isolation it doesn't seem as noticeable. However, I'm concerned for how this album will sound when listened to in full -
  4. The constant repeating of the song title in the lyrics is really starting to get to me. Invisible in particular doesn't need it - you could easily just have this section as an instrumental.
  5. RE Battle Symphony - were there other technical issues apart from the intro samples? I think Joe is playing these - no surprise that he is messing them up.
  6. Okay, this is primarily a structural suggestion rather than an absolute song suggestion (although it's close to what is realistically possible). In summary, the setlist structure is loosely Hard > Soft > Hard > Soft > Hard. This is trying to get away from the issue of the drawn out slower section of the set. I included some rotational song slots - it would be easy enough to turn this into distinct setlists instead. 01. Wake/The Requiem/other new intro (one of these or maybe rotating intros?) 02. Given Up 03. What I've Done (Distorted Remix Intro - please LP make this happen)
  7. I'm getting somewhat of a Coldplay - Ghost Stories vibe from how I think this album cycle will pan out. That comment about not playing full sized shows leads me to think that the shows will be more stripped back, still with a full band setup, but perhaps a minimal stage design, and likely a lengthier slow/acoustic block in the set.
  8. I agree that it's too short. The song progression is really good but it's all too condensed.
  9. Looks like they had all the lyrics for Darker than Blood ready as the first line of the 2nd verse popped up during the BID intro. I wonder if they had lyrics for Robot Boy, and some poor person was waiting for vocals that never came?
  10. To clarify, my comment was in reference to what Mike was playing on guitar at the LA show, not the original sample.
  11. RE Dolla: I know it's not this, but it kept bugging me that I had heard something similar.
  12. New set of videos up courtesy of YouTube user Hybr1d7h3ory, including the full Castle of Glass/Kenji. EDIT: Also Believe Me, where it turns out Mike performed Ryu's verse.
  13. So is it FM feat. LP or LP covering FM? RTN was performed exactly as you'd expect, so no help in terms of what might be played at the FM show.
  14. I would like to imagine that Ryu/Tak removing Fort Minor references is out of respect for Mike, rather than in spite of. Fort Minor is an established framework for Mike to release new music; there's nothing to say he couldn't do a new album with a completely different set of guest artists. I feel like this would be a bit more clear cut if a collection of music had been released rather than a single track. It also seems really weird for there to be a Fort Minor show without plenty of new material... ... so pending any surprise guests, it'll be interesting to see what Mike performs solo. Hop
  15. Which would be great if they dropped something like the Ballad Medley for it, but it could very well take the place of Mike's solo (that said, the RTM verse is getting a little stale).
  16. The Rising Tied was released on Nov 22, 2005 - also a Tuesday.
  17. RE Kurt, there likely isn't any video of it. He only appeared to play Chester's part in SOTD, and he only came on stage as far as the drum riser, so you wouldn't have spotted him if you weren't looking for him due to Chester's broken arm. http://lplive.net/shows/db/2007/20071016
  18. Both verses from Lies Greed Misery in succession would fit the tempo (cue LGM hate).
  19. Not if they haven't rehearsed it/don't have audio queues set up/don't have visual queues set up. Depends how organised they were prior to the tour. EDIT: Just re-read Pooch's blog about the move to using Ableton Live. All the issues he described were about getting different pieces of equipment to talk to one another. If they've sorted that out, then they might be in a position where they can more easily make setlist/song arrangement changes while on the road. We already know Mike is working on stuff - http://instagram.com/p/pBrGxdDmR4/
  20. Biggest question mark over the remainder of the set is whether some of the other songs can be played without their regular transitions. (With enough planning they should have this covered). If not, then something like Wastelands may be skipped purely because they don't have a way to play it without the Runaway transition.
  21. Has it been confirmed that Papercut opens the set? I could see GATS and GU opening before launching into HT.
