The third chorus switches to falsetto so he should be fine on that and the infamous final falsetto can probs be covered up with guitar fuckery on the upper frets. Or lowered, which honestly wouldn't be a big deal imo since the rest of the song is fucking amazing anyway.
Actually you're right, the G#s aren't that hard because they are all on pretty open 'ee' sounds which are the easiest to sing high.

I have my doubts that he can hit the final falsetto notes these days though. +1 I bet he will fudge it and cover it with a bit of guitar fuckery while hastily retreating from the mic.

He said they're the hardest part though? And vowel (while helping) won't change the fact that Matt's voice these days is not what it used to. I really don't think we'll see him sustain G#4s like that. If it's performed, let's hope it's at least half a step down because otherwise it's gonna be a painful gig.

I've been lurking here for years but never really posted before. Just submitted my vote

MM
Cave
Showbiz
Eternally Missed
Glorious
Futurism
Space Dementia
Fury
Dead Star
City of Delusion

Went City of Delusion for Jobby, seen him pop up loads over the years. My most wanted live song is In Your World, really gutted it wasn't on the list. Dead Star, In Your World and Futurism played back to back would've been amazing.

at this point, what songs can we safely say are locks, where the only way they won't get played is if the band (or matt) flatly refuses to play them?
Looking at the polls on Facebook and Reddit give a hint on what songs are voted high. But keep in mind people not going to the gig have also voted, plus it's mostly hardcore fans who are interested in these polls. I think that's the explanation on why for example Eternally Missed is ranked so high. Really hope it'll make it though once the "less hardcore fans" have voted.

But Showbiz seems like a clear number one and will without a doubt make the top 10. I think Fury is 100% top 10 as well. Muscle Museum looks like a safe call also. In the polls Assassin, Dead Star and Citizen Erased don't look safe, but I'd be very surprised (and disappointed) if all three don't make the top 10 (or in other words, will not be played). Spot 7-10 looks more open in my opinion.

Should've been Assassin or S4A. I almost feel bad for you, Jobby, if COD doesn't get played at this gig. I won't picture what you're doing while listening to it at home.

going to let the chips fall where they may with regard to Glorious and Easily, and i assumed Showbiz and Fury are “locks”...to the extent that they end up in the top ten (Showbiz, Fury) or quite simply might get played in any event (Fury).

Ruled By Secrecy
City of Delusion
Space Dementia
Eternally Missed
Assassin
Dead Star
Take A Bow
Muscle Museum
Futurism
Falling Away With You

threw in TAB as an alternate closer to Knights, just in case they really mix it up (at the very least, it could close before an encore). FAWY got the nod over SFA solely on account of it never being played before, but wouldn’t mind hearing SFA. in the end, tho -- as trite as it sounds, the set will be what it will be.

Yeah I meant like, put it in... 3rd slot or sth.

I actually don't expect it to tbh, reckon it might just miss out. I'm 111% waiting after the concert to ask the band to play it at Belfast or R+L though. Hoping they won't mind if it at least finishes in the top 30.

I was tempted to offer a joke in response to what happens when I listen to it but I shan't dignify you with that, simply because:

Is anyone else worried about the statement "the set will be curated from the top voted songs blah blah"

Curated sounds to me more like we will choose a few from this list of 10 to mix in with the rest of the so he of our choosing rather than we will play the top 10 most voted for songs...

'Top voted songs' is pretty vague tbf, doesn't necessarily mean just the top 10. The way the band's been talking about it in interviews lately, it sounds like at least the majority of the set will be picked from votes.
