Get a matched set of power tubes for your DT25.

Plug them in at home or practice room and check how bad they sound if not biased (it probably won't be bad).

Replace them with the original ones you had and store your replacement set in a save box for when you need them and don't worry anymore.

Once you really need them get them biased or do it yourselves after you get homw/back from your gig.

Buy a matched quartet, install one pair and bias. Take the other pair and keep them with you at gigs so you can swap without hassle should a problem arise. Keep your original tubes as emergency backups to your backups.

Nice improvement to my simple approach ;-).

Will keep that in mind
