That's a tough one; 15 spots isn't nearly enough :)

For a live show, that would be:

1 Now We Run
2 Oooo
3 Building the Church
4 Die To Live
5 Dying for your love
6 Juice
- Acoustic Set -
7 All About Eve (with Ann Marie obviously)
8 The Riddle Acoustic Arrangement
9 For The Love of God Acoustic arrangement
10 Brandos Costumes
- Back to the non-acoustic part of the show
11 Taurus Bulba
12 Get The Hell Outta Here
13 I'm becoming (full version like Feb 05 in Paris with Sharon Isbin)
- Encore -
14 The Annimal
15 Whispering A Prayer

1. Liberty
2. Juice
3. The Boy from Seattle
4. The Crying Machine (With Violins :D)
5. Lucky Charms
6. Angel Food
7. Taurus Bulba
8. Lotus Feet
9. All About Eve
10. Aching Hunger
11. I'm Your Secrets
12. Under it All
------- Encore -------
13. Whispering a Prayer
*14. Touching Tounges
*15. Here and Now

(16) Die To Live?

Got everything i'd want to see. Lucky charms and Boy from Seattle are pretty big ones for me, and I think that Here and Now has the most energy and would be an INCREDIBLE live song to see.

*Seriously, a one-off show in which Devin came on stage with Vai and they sang a few of the old S&R tunes would probably make me cry. Say in the middle of Touching Tounges he just comes out and WAILS in the vocal break. Imagine the audience reaction...? Completely unannounced... Then sings Here and Now to finish everyone off and the whole place goes berserk and all is right and well in the world. That would make me so happy...

If he played the entire Fire Garden album in order I think that would satisfy me for a set. Although it's 18 tracks, there are a couple on there that are less than a minute.
