    Has Symphony X ever played Edge of Forever live? I've turned up nothing via YouTube and Google. Probably my favorite Symphony X song and I can't find a single live recording. I'm interested in Winter's Dream I and II as well as Whispers.

    Sidenote - play Pittsburgh instead of Cleveland next time!

    Nope, never played it. None of those actually. They only started touring after Twilight in Olympus so they focused on Divine wings´s songs and Twilight´s songs for the live shows.
    The only song ive heard they played from Damnation Game album was dressed to kill, correct me if im wrong.

    They played the song "Damnation Game" in Madrid in the Paradise Lost tour.

    This is correct. After a show in 2007 I got a chance to talk to Russ about it. He said that when they played it, they didn't like the way it sounded; it just didn't feel right. He said the band has jammed on it a few times since then, but it just never really "clicked." I can understand this. Some songs are just "album" songs only, regardless of how great they are. Awakenings, for example.

    The only other songs that the band has played from The Damnation Game are the title track and Dressed.

    On a side note, it was also at this show that Mike Lepond told me that we'd never hear Frontiers played live because not enough people are familiar with it.
