Yep. They are known for playing long shows. (Or were? I'm not sure if they do the same stuff anymore, like covering albums, or playing long sets, or having a unique set list each night, without Mike Portnoy in the band. He used to be in charge of a lot of that stuff.)

I saw them in 2000, and while they didn't play any covers at that gig, their encore consisted of three songs, of lengths 20, 15, and 24 minutes. This was after playing for like two and a half hours before the encore.
