But there are strict rules (everyone together....ooooooohh) and I need everyone to respect them, otherwise the thread becomes a cluttered mess and I have no way to score these things in a timely manner.
So this is not a discussion thread. You simply post your set-list prediction.
That is it.
Here are the set-list guidelines
1) Maximum 30 songs including the encore but not including drum solo.
2) No points for the drum solo but there will be a bonus in that regards (see below)
3) You do not need to put in opening films, second set films etc. Just post songs.
4) When predicting 2112 no matter how many parts they play it is one song.
5) BU2B2 will not count towards the 30 song limit but will get scored if played.
Really simple rules.
So here is the scoring
Pick the opener - 250 points
Pick the first set closer - 500 points
Pick the second set opener - 100 points
Pick the second set closer - 500 points
Pick the Encore opener - 1000 points
Pick the Encore closer - 500 points
Pick what song preceeds the Drum Solo - 2000 points
Pick where in the set the Drum Solo is - 500 points
Song picked in the correct order of the set (not including set openers, closers or first or last encore) - 500 points
Pick a song never played live before - 5000 points for each song
Correct song in the set-list regardless of order - 50 points each song
Correctly predict all songs played from Moving Pictures - 1000 points total
Correctly predict all songs played from Permanent Waves - 1500 points
Correctly predict all songs played from Signals - 5000 points total
100 points - for every pre-1980 song in your set list
100 points - for picking exact number of songs in the set-list including encores but not including the drum solo or an Alex acoustic melody never before heard (like the diddy last tour before CTTH). So for example if Alex plays Broons Bane or Hope or anything that has ever been recorded or released officially it counts as a tune.
I will award the top 5 scores with some rare interviews on CD This will include:
The entire Test For Echo premier where all three members of the band were interviewed as the entire album was premiered on live radio.
I also have a couple of In-The Studio with Red Beard CD's I will give as prizes where the band talks about Power Windows and Hold Your Fire and the making of those two albums.
And your choice of one of some various sound board boots I have. Some of those include:
Hemispheres Tour - SB Boot (The famous Black Forest boot)
Permanent Waves Tour - SB Boot (The Keil Masters)
RTB Tour - SB Boot
CP Tour - SB Boot (Live in NC)
Echos From the Stage - Full Dress Rehersal for the T4E tour on SB.
So please again. Just post your set list. That is all that is needed. This will be scored in full before Christmas and prizes will go out before Christmas as well.
Let's have some fun!
