I hope that Mike releases the rest of the dates this week! I've never seen Dream Theater live before, so needless to say I'm super excited about this tour. I just pray that there's a PA date...

I'm there with ya. the last time DT was in my area was '04 and I didn't find this out until '06.  They tend to stop in PA...


lets hope that all of us on the forum will be lucky to see them this tour.

I don't think they will be making a DVD in Russia thou. Not about the venue, but it'll be the very beginning of the new tour, the album isn't released yet, nobody knows the new material... not likely
I hope at least it'll be sold out ;) we'll see

I was already afraid this would happen  :( Although I'm sure a lot of people want to see the other bands besides DT, I just want to see Dream Theater.
I guess I have to wait and see if they come back to Holland with a headlining show, otherwise I think we might have to go to Gelsenkirchen in Germany.

Still no italian date(s) but uh well, they will come... I'm still undecided however if seeing three bands I don't know / don't like and then 90 minutes of DT.... I'll make a decision closer to the gigs, after all, here DT haven't sold out a show yet and they get the biggest avalaible venue anyway, so... no need to hurry....

There are bands who charge that for a ticket normally. I understand what you are saying...

but think about it like this, there are some of us who will be luck to even see the band once. It would be worth the money to at least have one dream fulfilled.


Title: Re: 2009/2010 Dream theater Tour dates
Post by: Donna on April 10, 2009, 10:05:53 pm
Hm. 

I agree with you Subu, believe me.  However you and I come from a different "school" or a different "era" if you will, where paying money to meet a band is really something that seems absurd.  I'm being very honest here.  I wouldn't at THIS AGE, pay the money.  I have a family and yes, I do have better things to spend $250-$400 on - especially for now that I am living in a one income household --- and hopefully, a vacation coming in 4 weeks! 

 I was also discouraged by my parents to NOT fall for that kind of thing.  Ohhhhhhhhhhhh I used to be GAGA 10000000000% over Def Leppard and Triumph, but to my dismay, and my upbringing, I really never even got to even SEE them in concert in their "Hay Day" (sp??)  let alone pay to meet them.  This kind of "promotion" really wasn't a huge thing in the 80's that I was exposed to.   I have to chuckle as my mom STILL uses the line:  "Why don't you just give ME the $xxxx(insert amount here) you spent for that concert ticket???  I raised you for 23 years, and I'll even give you FOOD for that money!  Heck, I even sing for you!"  LOL!!    :D :D :D   I love my Mamma. 

There is a difference in thinking here for sure.  While I understand the desire to meet the band to tell them how much they are appreciated, and what not, I on the other hand, can't justify the money myself.   There are many factors that divide us as people.  Subu is just giving wisdom - and girlfriend is awesome at that.   :-* :-* She does it out of concern.  Remember, we were young once too!  We were fans of bands PRIOR to DT and had strong convictions for them. 

But, if this is something you REALLY want to do, just do it wisely; don't put YOURSELF out for it.  YOU w3, are more important here, in this scenario.  "Kay, darlin'?

Post by: w34vi1 on April 10, 2009, 10:58:15 pm
Yeah i understand. I'm just giving another side to it. and for me... if i knew they were going to be here regardless of what it cost.. i would have money for that ticket.

Post by: Natt on April 11, 2009, 03:31:51 am
Un-freaking-fair. Now I have a choice - either buy that M&G ticket or a new bass guitar. But in fact, the choice has been mabe - it's bass 1000%. Maybe I'm overreacting because I come from a country where a hundred bucks is what people earn a month, but still. Paying for autograph and some other stuff that much is wild. There are some fans who can barely afford buying a ticket for the gig - I'm travelling to another country to see DT - and I know a lot of people who are whining about this M&G but their parents won't give them money for that.
Anyways, it's their music, not the guys themselves I'm really into. I'd better save some money and maybe try to catch another their gig in the fall - I'm sure it's worth all bandanas in the world ;)

Woohoo!! Finally!! I was wondering when they were going to be announced because Aerosmith/ZZTop has already gone on sale and they're playing Fla.about the same time.

I'm hoping the Fla. go on sale this Sat. because I'll actually be home to order mine!!

3 days in between the Orlando & Atlanta show. I see a Tampa or Clearwater being booked during one of those in between dates. *fingers crossed*

Well if you look at their travel pattern... the entire Pacific Northwest is bypassed... for the past 5 tours i don't know why i even expect them to be close... Seattle was the closest and even that was near impossible to reach for me.... oh well


Maybe one of these days in the future I'll travel to the East Coast and see them... (might be a better chance)

I still plan on going to the Fla. shows but I also got tickets to the DC show(although technically Merriweather is in Columbia, MD). Center section, Row S. What really drew me to this show was QR(although it's ALWAYS great to see DT!!). My brother lives is Raleigh, NC and he's going to this show, too, with some people he knows. Actually, we're all going together.

Now if those Fla. shows would just go on sale!!

I'd be content, and i'd go back to my reporting tour dates duties like i do now...




Though it has become funny to see how many tours pass before they come back.... the tally is so far at 4 passed (8V, SC, CIM, PN08)... i think i might just get a five and a six soon... but oh well.

New date added:


Sat Aug 8 - Brookhaven Amphitheater - Brookhaven, NY


EDIT: a note from Mike

Quote from: Mike
It's looking like this *may* be all the dates....
 
I wish we could play everywhere, but there are many variables that make it impossible...
 
I must go on record and let you all know that I have been FIGHTING for shows specifically in Houston, Dallas and Phoenix...really, I've been totally pullin for em...but its just not looking good....
 
Frankly, the promoter's offers in those markets are not very good and for us to stay out those few extra 3 or 4 days at the end will put us in the red (we have to pay *alot* of overhead to make Progressive Nation happen.....the 3 extra bands, extra crew, catering, stage and venue time, etc. all comes from DT's pay)

So I made my manager and agent *promise* me if we can't swing it this time, it will happen regardless of the expense, when we do another US run in the spring....

MP


*Pulls out the list and checks off 5 tours to pass * Oh well better hope for Spring... :-\

Update:

Unfortunately, FROST* has had to pull out of the 2 European shows they were scheduled to do with Dream Theater in June:
--- June 18th in Lisbon Portugal
--- June 23rd in Munich Germany
(FROST* will still appear at the 2 UK shows earlier in the month)

However, I am pleased to announce that NEAL MORSE will now be DT's Special Guest at the June 23rd Munich show (in addition to the already announced show the next day in Gelsenkirchen, Germany)

Opening act replacement for the Lisbon show is still TBA....

I wish I knew.
But if you ask me, I would prefer "an evening with Dream Theater" show with no opening act at all. What can be better than 2 hours of Dream Theater? Only 3 hours of Dream Theater  ;)
However, I'll be happy with whoever they decide to put on the bill.

Mike said this in the past, they needed to do something different. Every tour of 3 hour shows can wreck havoc on the guys. he did mention that they will return to that set up in the near future...

but all i have to say is any time you can see them live is better then nothing  ;)

Seeing as how the tour begins in about a week and a bit, thought I would sticky this one. 

I finally have my seats for the Toronto show.  I knew if I waited, something would open up:

Section 102, Row N

Right on!!!!!

hey everyone!

I'm still in Moscow but in a few hours heading back home. The show was simply FANTASTIC and what can I say - it was even better than I imagined and totally worth the suffering I underwent.

Once again, thanks to DT guys for an awesome night and especially special thanks to James  who really blew us away. Incredible singing. Once again - you were fantastic, James. "Voices' is still ringing in my head.

I'd really appreciate it if you guys didn't upload the bits and bobs from Moscow show and let me cover it - I promise tomorrow you'll get a full review and pics from the concert I was really honored to attend. I'm just putting together everything I'd like to post here.

Hi all.

I'm finally here after escaping from the hospital - the X-rays revealed my rib was broken after I recieved a violent blow in the chest (right in the area that had been injured in a car accident some time ago) before the autograph session. It may have dulled my senses a bit, but didn't prevent me from enjoying the show anyways.

Here are some amazing Moscow press conference shots:

followed by autograph session:

this should be titled "Welcome to Russia" XD

(http://cs554.vkontakte.ru/u4570302/93652107/x_6159719f.jpg)

The only drawback of she show appears to be its ridiculous organization. It was very messed up and resulted in schedule delays so that not all people managed to get in before the concert started - despite the fact it started 45 minutes late!

some 45 minutes before the show
(http://cs4108.vkontakte.ru/u2522040/93628722/x_6c489f53.jpg)

10-15 minutes before the show. The venue is still not packed, and many people managed to get in only after the show.
(http://cs942.vkontakte.ru/u3226133/93628722/x_a47856a4.jpg)

So the show started 45 minutes late and with no opening act, but it wasn't "An evening with..." either. But when the curtain finally fell no one really cared how long they had to wait. It was absolutely fantastic, first to last note, only the crowd weren't singing along much because not many people actually know the words.

Luzhniki is a small venue so there was no video playback and also Mike's drumkit had to be resized considerably to fit in it. But in every other way, it was amazing - lack of the show elements didn't really matter as the music itself and stage presence of 5 whiz-bangs topped it all.

The set was obviously compiled of what we consider DT "classic" songs of every album, and I'm particularly grateful to Mike for choosing to play Panic Attack on that night. This song has a very special place in my heart - not only it's one of my favorite songs ever, it was the very first Dream Theater song I heard.

The sound was terrific - at least I never heard anything better, though I read some of the reviews where people complained about the not so well balanced sound. I can't say that - I was in the center of the front row and the sound coudn't be clearer to me, keys and bass (which people moaned about) were nowhere near weak-sounding. Easily the best.

The band played as tight as smooth as they always do, save the minor hiccup at the end of As I Am, but they picked it up really fast and in a way it was even cute.

High praise to James LaBrie whose full and powerful vocals totally blew us away. And oh, once he took the stage, I found it really hard to look away from him  ::) Do I have to explain myself? I'm a girl, and the man who was right in front of me is hell of a singer and damn hot!

"...and now JP's gonna play thiiiiis long solo" ;p
(http://cs942.vkontakte.ru/u3226133/93628722/x_ae1079cc.jpg)

I really loved John Petrucci's extended solos on Hollow Years and Solitary Shell and the amazing guitar-key duel on Metropolis Pt.1. It was a mindblowing show that left us screaming with delight while craving more.
Thank you DT for finally making it to Russia - we really had the time of our lives. It was incredible.

Also I was amazed at how adorable and loyal to their fans DT guys are. I wasn't the one who chased DT's minibus across Red Square, but I was the one who asked Jordan Rudess for an autograph at 10 pm and got it. DT are so nice and down to earth. And so good looking... whoops. ::)

However, let me say THANK YOU AND CONGRATULATIONS for posting all those wonderful pictures, and for meeting Dream Theater, and getting your beautiful drawings signed by them!  What was their reaction to your work?   
There are some GREAT shots of the band, and particularly of James singing at the mic. 

We are glad you are home safe, and happy that you had this wonderful oppourtunity, sweetie.  Good on ya!!!!

Now, take good care of your rib cage, and good care of yourself. 
Thanks again!

Thanks! Don't worry about me, in a couple of weeks I should be fit as a fiddle - and emotionally, I'm still on cloud nine in spite of everything.

Man who knew Autograph sessions could be so brutal...
they're usually not, but this one was a piece of junk in terms of organization. A few hundred people were literally trapped in a narrow hallway with poor ventilation, and then suddendly security guys remembered they had to set up the barriers... We got squeezed and everybody was hot and nervous.

What was their reaction to your work?  
Just like I said - MP, JR and JP said they liked my drawings after asking if I did them myself. JM said nothing - but then again, does he ever say anything? - and so did James.

I might have to do like i did for the SC tour, pay someone to get me some swag. (Thats how i got my SC Shirt) seeing that Live nation pretty much runs the venue scene in my area... and they don't feel that DT would bring in enough money to them... they prob won't sch them for a stop. might be how i get my swag until i have the money/car/time/close enough venue to attend a concert too....

not to really state the obvious, but you can tell aside form BCSL not currently released, they have pulled their own little homage to Awake. there seems to be around 3 songs from the album. but there is also a little SFAM homage in there too... 15 years for Awake and 10 for SFAM... great milestones if you ask me.



EDIT: I wonder what the shirt designs are for the BCSL world tour...

Title: Dream Theater in Leeds last night - James LaBrie in TOP FORM!!!!
Post by: stevolabriemyung on June 13, 2009, 03:00:39 pm
Hey guys!

So who else what at that absolutely astounding gig in Leeds last night??? James was 100% note perfect and his stage presence was absolutely phenomenal!!!!

I was lucky enough to meet James, Mike Portnoy and John Petrucci at the stage door when they arrived! Awesome guys, and James is looking great!

The setlist was as follows:

In the Presence of Enemies Part 1
Beyond this life
Misunderstood (Which james sang amazingly)
A Rite of Passage
Hollow Years (Extended version)
Caught in a Web (James sounded just like he did on Awake and hit all the high notes)
Forsaken
Erotomania
Voices
Solitary Shell
Constant Motion
As I am
-----------------
Metropolis/Learning to Live/Change of Seasons


For great pics of the show and meeting the guys before check out afew of my pictures on www.myspace.com/codezeroofficial

Also check out the amazing videos on youtube for the Leeds gig... you will see how good LaBrie was and how much the rest of the guys were amazing (like John Petrucci and Jordan Rudess jamming together LYING ON THE FLOOR)

All I can say is those of you massive LaBrie fans out there who are seeing them on this tour, you will be blown away... James's voice is definitely the best it has ever been!



Stevo :) ;) :D ;D

Hey congrats on being the part of DT show! This is awesome. I'm gonna go now and check out your pics...

The setlist isn't very different from the one they had in Moscow, with a few changes

you will see how good LaBrie was and how much the rest of the guys were amazing (like John Petrucci and Jordan Rudess jamming together LYING ON THE FLOOR)
aww that provokes my envy!!  >:( Joke, joke. You guys were lucky, that's awesome. I'm so glad for you, for real

All I can say is those of you massive LaBrie fans out there who are seeing them on this tour, you will be blown away... James's voice is definitely the best it has ever been!
Yep, I already was. This is the LaBrie _\m/

Well they played an amazing version of Caught in a Web - one which LaBrie has struggled to sing in recent years, but all fans there were blown away at the preciseness of his singing - he didnt need to go an octave lower at any parts etc - he sounded VERY much like he did on Awake, and hit the high notes perfectly, similarly with Voices and Metropolis - it put a shiver down everyones spine!

At the same time I love the way that LaBrie is clearly embracing new styles for him, his vocals at the gig were very 'James Hetfield like' at times!

Although the highlight of the night was the 'lying down Zen Riffer and Guitar jam' check it on youtube if you get a chance EPIC!!!


Stevo ;)

how cool...
too bad Caught in a Web can't seem to be anywhere on YouTube... I'd like to hear it much

and yeah, I was amazed at how James doesn't really need to struggle for both high and low notes... it all just flows incredibly smooth, precise and seemingly effortless

rock on James! Rock on DT!

Title: Re: PROGRESSIVE NATION 2009 North American Tour - IMPORTANT UPDATE
Post by: w34vi1 on June 22, 2009, 07:01:48 pm
IMPORTANT UPDATE!

PROGRESSIVE NATION 2009 North American Tour - LINEUP CHANGE


For Immediate Release
June 22nd, 2009
 
 
It is with the utmost disappointment that I am forced to share the unfortunate news of both Pain Of Salvation and Beardfish having to pull out of this summer's Progressive Nation tour....
 
Their label Inside Out just recently lost the financial funding for the tour as a result of their distributor SPV recently claiming bankruptcy...which effectively meant that both Pain Of Salvation and Beardfish lost the tour support that was essential to their ability to come to North America for Progressive Nation.
 
All parties involved (myself, both bands, Inside Out, etc) are beyond devastated at this turn of events and are truly sorry to all of the fans that were looking forward to this lineup. We tried everything we could do to salvage the situation, but in the end it was not possible...
 
Well as the album title says, every Black Cloud does indeed have a Silver Lining....so with this unfortunate news, I bring to you the good news of 2 incredible bands that will jumping on board Progressive Nation to join Dream Theater and Zappa Plays Zappa this summer: Bigelf and Scale The Summit.
 
Los Angeles' Bigelf are my personal favorite new band to come along in many years...their latest CD "Cheat The Gallows" is my favorite album of the year and I already had positioned them onto the European run of Progressive Nation in the Fall....with them now joining us on PN09 in North America as well, it looks like world domination is now not that far out of reach for them!
Pretty soon, everyone will hopefully be falling for their retro, psychedelic, progressive, hard rock, doom metal as hard as I have!
 
Houston instrumental band Scale The Summit are a recent discovery for me and their top notch musicianship will be a perfect fit to this Progressive Nation lineup stylistically falling very nicely between the musicality of Dream Theater and Zappa Plays Zappa. They bring the instrumental elements of prog rock and fusion into today's contemporary hard rock/metal sounds and are one of the most talented group of young musicians I've seen assembled in many years.
 
Once again, apologies to anybody disappointed in this unexpected and unavoidable lineup change...but the circumstances were beyond our control...
In any event, PN09 will carry on and still deliver the most musical bang for its buck this summer throughout North America and we look forward to sharing the evening with you!
 
Sincerely,
Your Progressive Rock Ambassador,
Mike Portnoy

tell me about it... I've been reporting these tour dates, for this forum since the 8V world tour set... and in that time they haven't been in my area... I have a license, but its the driving down Interstate-5 that's the hard part (its the most dangerous interstate on the west coast, and trust me as someone who drove it a lot, i believe it)

It'd be great if they came to Nashville, so it would only be a 30 minute drive for me. Having to drive 4 or 5 hours to see a concert is insane. I'm sure it's worth it though, since it's Dream Theater. :3

Hollow Years
Caught In A Web

  :o
One of the best DT shows I've seen since 1995 !  8) Great location, beautiful weather as well   8)
The band was on, James was f*cking amazing in fact all of them were !!
They seemed to have such fun on stage and enjoying the great crowd in Gelsenkirchen...
The instrumental parts were awesome and so relaxed ! JP once sat down for a while before Mike's kit and played !
Funny thing was, behind the stage there was a canal, where a lot of people watched the show from the sides and during the songs Mike would stand up and wave to us and then turn around and greet the people behind him   :D
I'm uploading some vids and post them here later.
THANK YOU  James, Mike, John, Jordan and John for the awesome amazing show which will not be forgotten for a loooong time !!

Had an awesome time with my hubby, Jasja (some of you remember her) and Mark (better known as DT's webmaster) !

Like an idiot I watched with the mouse-over the setlist thread over at MP.com so I got spoiled the first two songs... still I hoped for a diverse setlist, but that was not the case, so when I saw Mike climbing on his drums and counting on the secret cowbell, I knew In the Presence of Enemies was about to start  ;D James arrived halfway through and immediately made the stage his own, very confident and secure... and obviously great at singing as well!

Beyond this Life followed immediately after, and what a roar it was... the crowd went crazy on this, ha!! everyone singing during the chorus... no changes to this one, it was "just" the studio version, but at 11 minutes, it was fine this way  ;D

As soon as the slow outro for BtL ended, JP started immediately Constant Motion, which was another neck breaker for the audience... out of the set it's the song I could have done without the most, but it's still fun to hear live... forevermore - into the night - blistering!!!!

It was only now that the band stopped, and James talked... and he did to present the new album, and introduce the new song, A Rite of Passage: my, what a great live song it's this!!! slow headbanging and a full singalong on the chorus with people luckily knowing already the song... this one is quite a strong number live, too bad they didn't play Wither as well!!

Speaking of softer songs, next was Hollow Years, with a intro that took me a while to figure out, but by the moment the actual song kicked in, I knew what it was, ha! this one was the demo version, with a slightly extended bridge, and with an added and quite beautiful solo similar like the one found on Live at Budokan... very nice stuff!!

Caught in a Web was next, and it was about time to get some good ol' Awake back! short but powerful song, James firing on all cylinders and the band following him... it was just great hearing James raging on during the whole song like in the good ol' times!!  8)

And then, the combo of the evening: Erotomania + Voices!!!!! everyone went nuts during Erotomania, and it was funny when in the middle of the song (when the most melodic part starts, leading to the themes of The Silent Man and Caught in a Web) they slowed down and stopped, with then Mike making the gesture of starting again but stopping, and then pointing at JP like saying "ha, got you!", before restarting again for real.... too funny!
And the Voices, the masterpiece that Voices is, played flawlessly and perfectly... well, maybe not perfectly: there HAS to be the second, heavy verse, no Voices is complete without "f@[k this w^0re" part  ;D

By now it was time for the ultimate higlights... first Pull Me Under, with obviously everyone singing along (and in the part leading up to the "Watch the sparrows falling" part some insane double-bass-that-it-looks-triple work from Mike), and then the ultimate masterpiece that Metropolis pt. 1 is, with an extended solo section with Jordan using his "keytar" that was standing behind him since the show started.... what a way to end the show and what a nice song to hear as last after 2 days of festival  :)

Too bad that time it flew away, and while the setlist was nice, I could think of an entirely diverse setlist without any of these songs, and yet there'd be many songs worth to hear missing from that alternative set, so I'll just be happy with what I got from my 8th live experience with the guys... no particular words of praise for James: by now we all know how great and consistent he is, so sayin that he was great is by now stating the obvious  :D and well, with musicians like that you can't go wrong, and even if they'd mess up something I bet most wouldn't notice... James' voice is obviously a lot more noticeable, but there's nothing that he wasn't able to do last night and once again I am completely satisfied by his performance  8)

Damn those czech fans!!! not only they live in one of the most beautiful towns of the world, they even get the worldwide premiere of A Nightmare to Remember!!!! strange that they didn't play Wither, the "usual" pattern for DT during summer festivals seemed to be the one of playing the "easy" songs (see last tour: Constant Motion, Dark Eternal Night, Forsaken) while saving the epics for the proper headliner tour....

maybe they wanted to save it for a later time, or when they go through Europe again...


they still have PN08 North America and Europe, AND the World tour...


who knows the method behind Mike's madness...

That was really unbelievable concert. Everyone in group was on fire. Can't say anything negative for them.

First of all; We waited for the open-time of concert with myfriends. It was like time wasn't ticking. Anyway; I bought VIP ticket with my dudes so we went to lead raw and waiting for DT. Of course CYNIC made the crowd crazy with their super performance but surely everyone here was waiting for DT.

The Open Of DT

That was amazing, drums, guitars, keys and these most talented guys apeared. In The Presence Of Enemies was done perfectly, actually they played tihs song in 2007 but this time LaBrie made this song a legendary opener.

Beyond This Life as usual perfect and almost played in every gigs. That was enough to make us totaly crazy about them. Great solos, great drum.

Misunderstood; really I wasn't expecting to hear but they suprised us, I was melting for this song cos it become such a great song on live with LaBrie.

A Nightmare To Remember; that was shocking time. This song was made to make it performe live. Begining of the song; James's voice took us back Awake's days. His voice really impressing on that one. And the second section of the song and with a lovely voice of LaBrie. I can't tell you just have to see it live.

Hollow Years; a great ballad made its work and made everyone live in wonderland. Can't believe the crowd sang it the entire song. That was amazing time of the concert of course; LaBrie and us were amazing. 

Caught In A Web; of course I have some doubt about this song cos there is no video about on BC&SL tour and I thought; how can it be cool live! But I was really SHOCKED of LaBrie's performance. Like I said; He was on fire and made us live Awake's day again. Not like Chaos in Motion tour. Really improved singing.

Erotomania and Voices; Erotomania yeah! Everyone just focused Petrucci, Myung and Portnoy. A magic time for us. And the legend song of VOICES. There is no word to explain their performance. LaBrie was star of the song. He hit the high notes with no mistakes. That killed us of course. After high notes; everyone was screaming "Laaaaaaaaaaaaaa Brieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee" 

Solitary Shell: Such a great and funny live song. We all enjoyed. Believe me; Turkish fans are really great listener. We never kept us unmoved, always there was an action, screaming! 

A Rite Of Passage: Really I undertand that; This song become pretty badass live. LaBrie really owned the begining and the chours really impressing with Portnoy. It seems; the crowd knew the song well.

Pull Me Under: LaBrie left to sing and we had the mic.   And DT just watched us   I was waiting PMU cos the last gig they played AS I AM. So it was not suprising. LaBrie nailed the "Watch the...." section, that was not like you saw on Youtube. These high notes were hit by LaBrie well.

Medley: A great medley opening with Metropolis, I felt myself watching SCORE cos LaBrie really sang it perfectly. The solos section with Rudess and Petrucci killer part of it. And Learning To Live just a taste from I&W. Brillant performed by LaBrie and I must say that this song should be played BC&SL world tour entirely. We just missing F# section. And The Crimson Sunset and the voice of LaBrie just made us kill. "Live Onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!" 

The crowd, DT, Istanbul, Turkey everthing was amazing.
Istanbul had an earthquake, we died in this beautiful agony 
Waiting again you guysssssssssssss

Yeah, I wouldn't know what to answer... obviously MP / JP / JM is the core of the band, they're friends since school so they are very close to each other... and Jordan came along "only" 10 years ago... he's probably friends with everybody and "soulmate" (not in that sense, d'uh  ;)) to none in particular I'd guess...

DT's MIAMI SHOW

Finally got home at 5AM, by the time the show ended, about midnight, to trying to get out of the freaking parking garage!!! >:(

Miami is a 4 hour drive from my house, that's OK, really nice to have I-95 to myself for most of the trip home.

Anyhoo, missed the 1st 2 bands, caught ZPZ. I saw them last year, my sister talked me into going, and although I've never been a FZ fan, their shows are still rather entertaining. From a female's point of view, too I've always thought Dweezil to be very easy on the eyes.

DT's show -

For those who don't go on DTF.org. PN09, or any of the other DT-related websites, the setlist

ANTR
AROP
Hollow Years
Erotomania
Voices

TCOT

Encore
Metropolis

From where I stood, which was right in front of JM, James's vocals were SPOT ON, especially during Voices.

ANTR kicked, too really got the crowd going. So did Erotomania.

There was also a short JR solo, only a few minutes, but I don't really remember where exactly in the show it was. Sorry to JR!!

Heading to the Orlando show tonight, thank goodness its only an hours drive!!

Holy CRAP, if they do TCOT in Toronto, I will simply PEE MY PANTS!  Definitely the #1 song in our household these days.
Encouraging, and brought out the fangirl in me bigtime:  Last weekend I was in one of the GTA (greater Toronto area) music store's called Cosmo's Music (My husband needed some new strings), and among the din, I hear someone playing the beginning of TCOT.  Mama was smiling!

Thanks guys for your responses!!

The Orlando show:

First of all, even though this is James' board, can I mention for a minute how much I love MP. Well, not "love", but more of an admiration, for what he(and the other 4), do for us fans, but especially him, because I know he's the one who does the setlists. He knows that fans go to multiple shows, and come back tour after tour, so he mixes it up, so we aren't hearing the same thing. Some fans on DTF.org are commenting on the weird setlist last night, but I LOVED it!!

ANTR(I love, love, love this song and hearing it live makes me love it even more)
Prophets of War
Sacrificed Sons
Misunderstood(this was strange they did this because I remembered they did this last year in Orl., but didn't care, LOVE this song, too!)
AROP
The Dance of Eternity
Take the Time


Encore:
TCOT

Oh yeah, and after the show, when the house music started playing I could've sworn I heard Thriller. As we were slowly making our way out, I also could hear AROP, and I noticed it was a mixture of the 2 songs.. It sounded cool and I had never heard this before. Does anybody know about this recording?

A nice tribute to MJ's music from the band.

Nop,  I did see them in Gelsenkirchen June 24th, but the m&g will be at PN09 in Rotterdam, October 7th, so still very excited here  ;) I'm sure you would have known if I did have the m&g yet  :D
Can't wait to see your pics though, Andie !

Loved that video!! James kills me!! Yes, driving from my house to Clearwater yesterday, it rained off & on. It was OK when I got into CW but wouldn't you know it as soon as I pulled onto the Ruth Eckerd parking lot, it started raining again, really hard. Sat in my car for 25 min waiting for it to die down, but it didn't, and I wanted to get in there. I had an umbrella which I really didn't want to take inside, but you do what you have to do(all in the name of DT!! ;D). Managed to stay dry getting there except my shoes, so had wet feet the rest of the night. >:(

Setlist -

A couple changes

ANTR(I CANNOT get enough of the "Hopelessly drifting" part!, seriously, I always feels like I'm being lifted a couple feet off the ground)
AROP
Hollow Years
TDOE
One Last Time
Solitary Shell
TCOT(Donna, you better go buy yourself some Depends now, looks like that song is a mainsstay in their set, including your show)

Encore:
Metropolis

It was awesome that James acknowledged Ruth Eckerd Hall, that is a great venue. I've seen a few shows there, not a bad seat in the place. Last year, when I saw that DT was booked there, I let out such a scream, I scared my animals out of the room!!

On the downside though, let me just tell you how truly embarrassed I was at the Clearwater audience though. Not soon after DT came on stage. half the crowd started sitting down. Mike kept motioning to them to get back up. While they were playing, he would point his drumstick to parts of the crowd and "swoop" his arm up as if to say "GET UP!!" He did this a few times, then just gave up, and I could tell he was aggravated. Really a shame. A bunch of lame-o's.

Something like this happened last year, I was 2nd row, standing up, and the 1st row was up, too. People off on the left side kept yelling for the 1st row to sit down. Um, idiots, the whole point of being up front is to stand up through the whole show. I mean nobody said anything to me, but these people paid good money to be up front, and for what, so they could SIT during DT? I don't think so. I stood all through the show last night and nobody said anything to me again, thankfully.

@ Andie - I am RUNNING to Walmart right now, to get those and I have NO idea how I am gonna get a box of Kleenex into my little backpack!   :D :D :D

Yeah, it sucks when a crowd behaves more like they are watching opera when they are at a rock concert.  I mean, you wanna stand up..........sing......cheer.......it's a great release of stress as well.  I know that I can't wait for our concert here, and I am praying that we are sitting around people who aren't such a stick in the mud.  What really makes me go  ::) ::) ::) BIG TIME is when these guys bring their girlfriends that obviously don't want to be there, and they are ......"like......soooooooooooooo bored, like you know?".  Well...STAY HOME.  And don't force your fake nailed, obviously uninterested girlfriends to the show if they don't wanna be there.  Same goes for these people who bash the band, but go see them anyways to critique them more.    Save your money, and stop peeing on my lawn, ya know?

I understand you, completely.  I am hoping to have a great time.  I am even going to go and get some of those glow sticks that you can turn into necklaces and bracelets.  Hmmmmmmmmmmm....pink, or blue for me?

I used to see that alot when I started going to their shows early on. I was one of the few females there, and most of the other females there were only there because their "man" was a fan, and like you said looking bored and CLUELESS. On Gigantour, I went to go to the bathroom, the line for the men's room was rather long, I got right in!! You NEVER see that!! Now I'm seeing more females come to the shows who are actually into the music!!

This one girl last night had a tattoo of Mike's autograph on her upper right back. It looked pretty cool and at first, I couldn't tell if it was his actual autograph or a tattoo. It looked so authentic.

I understand you, completely.  I am hoping to have a great time!!  I am even going to go and get some of those glow sticks that you can turn into necklaces and bracelets.  Hmmmmmmmmmmm....pink, or blue for me? 

I think blue will show up better "in the dark" Anything to get you noticed!! I was wearing my "James Rocks" shirt last night. He finally noticed it during Metropolis. It's kinda hard to explain his reaction though.

Sorry... ::) ;) :D

Well, it was a GOOD reaction. It was like he saw it, pointed at me, and gave me this silly look, and smiled. I know he pointed at ME, because for goodness sake, I was RIGHT in front of him. I mean I had to look up to see him when he was at the front of the stage. I say that he pointed at ME, because years ago Extreme fans used to tell me all the time that during their concerts "Oh, Gary pointed at me in concert" and they would like be in the 20th row!!

But I'm really surprised he didn't notice it until the last song. I mean I know he's dealing with alot on stage and there's so much going on, but I was RIGHT THERE!! Within arms length.

Also, another thing about REH is I forgot how hazardous it can be being up front there. You are right up to the stage, there's no barrier between you & the stage. I was front row for Whitesnake and for anybody familiar with David Coverdale's mic stand movements, you know he's always lifting it upside down in the air. There were a few times, I swear I thought he was going to "clunk" me in the head!! Same goes for James, he'd be at the front singing with the stand, then go to walk back towards Mike and he would swing the stand around, I was just waiting for him to "poke my eye out"!

Yeah, and you know what? I'm on vacation, scheduled it around DT's tour, and leaving tomorrow for NC, and seeing them in Asheville. Then I'm going over to Raleigh where my brother lives and we're going to see them in MD. He wanted to know the setlists from all the shows, so I was texting him all through the Mia & Orl show, but last night, I could see the setlist before the show, so I just texted him the whole thing all at once. This is really the most shows I've seen on one tour. Asheville was kinda a last minute thing. I really wanted to go to the MD show, too, because of Queensryche being on the bill, so I thought, I'm going to be in NC anyway so..... ;D

Almost looks like they're alternating the 2 setlists. I wouldn't mind if they slipped in just one different song though!! ;)

Yeah, I know, "never enough".

Hey, there's a idea!! ;D

I saw DT perform Tues night in Atlanta. It was my first time seeing them, and I still can't believe how much fun it was, and how memorable it was getting to meet all of the guys before their set! I even saw myself on one of Jordan's Youtube video uploads!

Here's a few of my pics.

James

Jordan's iPhone solo!

JP's godlike solo during "The Count Of Tuscany"

Awesome pics, JPM!! I'm still waiting for mine from this past weekend.

Now the Asheville show -

INCREDIBLE SHOW, INCREDIBLE AUDIENCE!!!!!!

Asheville, you definitely ROCK!! Clearwater should take some tips from you!!

Setlist -

ANTR
Constant Motion YESSSSSSSS!! What was I just saying about adding in a different song?!
Beyond This Life(I swear I was going to lose it last night!! ;D) When James said "something from SFAM", I didn't care what it was!!
HY
Erotomania(something happened during this, at first, it sounded like JP's guitar went out, but then they all started to kinda stop playing. Then they were laughing about something, I think the fact that they messed up. Mike went into a short drum solo which got the crowd going-you really couldn't get them anymore "going" than they were!! Then they jumped right back into it. This shows what professionals they are, and also shows their fans they're only human)
then
Voices, of course, with James' vocals being amazing as always ;)
TCOT

Encore
Metropolis

Speaking of the audience again, all of us stayed standing through the whole show. I loved it!! 3 young guys, 2 rows right in front of me, were so into the show, they were amusing to watch.

Donna & I talked recently of females at DT concerts, the bored & clueless ones. There were 2 females in particular last night, in the row in front of me at the end, and another 2 rows in front of me, you can definitely tell they were DT fans, and that was great to see!!

Philly Tower

First time poster.........35 year Queen fan, 10 year DT fan........seeing them tonight at Merriweather.  Three times previous to this tour.   Now it's twice in two nights. 

Sad set list...........Nightmare, Passages, Hollow Years (this was FAB!!!!), Erotomania/Voices (also damn good with the 'crucifix' segment removed), Prophets of War, Count

Metropolis/Petrucci Rudess Solo/ Metropolis finish

Lighting was terrific!  Better than DC last year. 

They survived the Spinal Tap moment after 'Psycho' as the netting hung up on Petrucci's side for about 30 seconds.

No mention by LaBrie of this incident.

I miss Ant Odyssey. 

Zappa Meets Zappa are superb. 

Bigelf is a joke.

Scale The Summit is good, but young.

I hope the setlist is different tonight.  It just didn't grab us last night, and was damn short.

Welcome, goodco.  Great to have a new member here.  That setlist sounds like it would be killer to me, but that's just me.  See...we didn't get DT here in Toronto last year, so I will take them anyway, anyhow this year.  Nonetheless, have a great time at the show tonight!  Post up the setlist if you are so inclined..... ;) ;D

This past Tuesday was my first time seeing DT live too.

Atlanta's setlist was great, but I wish we'd have gotten Erotomania/Voices. (maybe next time!) ;D

Merriweather in Columbia, MD rocked tonight.

Due to seeing DT last night, we took off later to avoid Bigelf and got hung up in O's-RedSox traffic.....and missed Queensryche.  Sigh.  Would appreciate any comments.

Crowd size was above average for this venue, but not close to a sell out.

Dweezil and gang were once again superb.

Now, for the good stuff.

The boys were great tonight.  I will always feel cheated due to them playing less than 100 minutes, but it was a great show, a very responsive crowd, and much better sound than last night.  An outdoor venue allows that.  Good sound engineering helps.  No earplugs needed, and my ears are only slightly buzzing though I was only 15 rows from center stage.  Feet and legs are tired from having to stand the whole show (not complaining). Moving on...........

Psycho
Nightmare (no Spinal Tap moment, as the curtain dropped all at once;-))  Grade: A-
Prophets of War:  C+

Our favorite of the night:  Sacrificed Sons.  A+ on everything.  Very emotional in all regards (duh, that's an earth shattering opinion), especially with the video backdrop.

Rites of Passage: B+

Dance of Eternity / One Last Time, and...........nope, ....sorry, ....no Spirit Carries On.  Damn....DT gets a hold of you emotionally, the Pavlovian instincts kick in, but one is left hanging.  Grade: A- (or is it an incomplete?)

Solitary Shell..........superb extended version.  Loved it!   So did the crowd.  First time I've seen JP in person with a 12 string.  But, once again.........saliva begins to form, and...and... no About To Crash / Grand Finale.  Damnit.  Two times left without the cracker. See above grade.

In The Name of God:  not a favorite and yet damn good.  Went back to the lawn area and watched the 'youngsters' head bang and do a semi- mosh pit routine.  Ahh, to be young again.  Grade:  B+

Encore:  The Count.  Anyone ever heard the Brian May and Roger Taylor benefit track 'Say It's Not True' (alternate version included on the Queen+Paul Rodgers LP)?.  I swear the last seven minutes are an extended and modified version with different lyrics.  Grade:  A-.  As a finale, it is difficult for some of the crowd, because they've had a long night and won't shut up during the intro and 'mellow' guitar solo.  Grade: A-

Glad I got to see them two nights in a row.  They never cease to amaze me with their individual abilities.

btw, thanks for your kind words of welcome.  This site was very helpful in preparing us for what was in store.  Keep up the good work.

OK.  SS AND ITNOG??????  I would have peed myself over that alone. I can only hope for an awesome setlist like this in Toronto, are you kidding?  I mean, frankly, I don't care if I ever hear "Spirit Carries On".  I know it's a rock ballad that means a lot to fans, but to me, it's not a big deal.  SS and ITNOG in the same list though.....holy....sounds like a great concert.....12 days to go..........once again, thanks for the review.....

Goodco, welcome to the JLB forum!!

I was at the Merriweather show, too!! Row S in the Center. Really good seats!!

Just got home as we went to Kings Dominion today, and no access to a computer, until we did get home.

Nice to see somebody post a review besides me(although I certainly don't mind it at all!!)!!

My opinion of the night --

ANOTHER AWESOME CROWD, really into the show, stayed standing through all of DT, and even gave each opening band a standing ovation. How great was that?

James has been sounding incredible on this tour, and he sounded especially amazing on ITNOG.

Whenever they showed Jordan on the big screen, you could see half his setlist so I think everybody knew what was going to be played next!!

Could've done without the couple in front of me, who had their hands on each other all through the night. *puke* Great, you're in a relationship, I came to see this band, not your public displays of affection. It was another episode of the boyfriend bringing the girlfriend, who is so not into DT. I didn't think he was either at first, because he didn't seem like he was into the show, but he also noticed Jordan's setlist, and he motioned to his friend who was with them "2 more songs", then "1 more song" so it was obvious he was familiar with the music. I just kept thinking "Why don't you just LEAVE??" >:(

JM & JP did a meet&greet yesterday afternoon at a place called Chuck Klein's Washington Music Center. I mentioned to JP about the Asheville show, and he was saying what a great show that was because the audience was so into it the whole night, as opposed to the Clearwater crowd. I apologized about Clearwater and told him how embarrassed I was about them. A couple other things were said, I don't remember everything, I never do!! But it's pretty much to the effect that the guys notice stuff like that. I can't imagine how that makes them feel to have an audience act that way. I'm hoping that the "love" they're getting from other shows overshadows the response from Clearwater.

Haven't seen the video, but I'm assuming it was like last night, where when Jordan was being shown on the big screen, you could see half of the page where the setlist is on his keyboard. You only need to see the left half to figure out what all the songs are!! :P

Just doing a follow up after having a few days to recover from two DTs in two days:

I'm going to upgrade reviews of certain tracks over the two days of Philly and Columbia/Metro DC.
After all, I wasn't crazy about 'As I Am' or 'Ministry of Lost Souls' until the DC concert last year.  Now, well, I like 'em quite well and were perfect for where they were in the set list.  Moving on..........

Prophets of War...... knowing they might do it, and then doing it two days in a row, I was unexcited, but.....due to the crowd response, it jumps up to a B+.  

Columbia, and seeing 'In The Name of God', and listening to the live and studio versions over the past couple of days, it goes up to a 'A-' as well.  I was just sad that, due to my watch, I knew that was it for the concert proper, and most likely they'd do 'Counts' as an encore.   Which is what happened.

I'm old, and old school, so I thought perhaps 'Constant Motion', 'As I Am', etc.....shorter tracks to grab an audience.  Please Mr. Portnoy, don't direct 'Never Enough' towards me.  I am simply commenting.  Although........I wish 'Nightmare' was cut to 12 minutes, and 'Count' down to about 15.  Loved the video backdrop to JP's slide of this song.  Really set a mood.  Silver snowflakes/metal shavings....wunderbar.

The medleys:   I don't get to see all the shows, so I want the third track attached.  Please come back and do a 'Night of Dream Theater'.  Glad I got to see Erotomania/Voices in Philly, but I wish............

Glad I got to see 'Dance of Eternity'/'One Last Time'........but I wish..........

oh, and here's a link to a great version of 'The Spririt Carries On' from, of all places, Bulgaria, during this tour

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CXqYuK6eXoM

Glad I got to see the terrific extended version of 'Solitary Shell', but I wish..........

Now, as for 'Sacrificed Sons'...........my grade goes up to A++++++.  I'd kill for a live video, with a camera sitting still, showing the band and the screen.  Words cannot describe.  Plus, MP goes crazy at the end.

and, while I'm at it.........JM goes crazy all the time.  The crowd generally focuses on the rest of the band.  While a normal bassist would just move his right hand on occasion, this dude goes lead forever, but.........do we notice it?   Mr. Myung, you are the best !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

recently................at  www.dreamtheater.net there are 'blogs' to post on each show

lastly...........Paul McCartney was playing in DC that night.  No wonder the crowd was smaller than expected.

and, btw, why didn't you guys stop in your limo and say hello in the lot at Columbia.  We were the guys in the Sgt Pepper and Queen tee shirts.  just kidding.  nice ride, dudes

I love the reviews, and yes the grades are opinion...

but sometimes the guys can have bad nights, and good nights...


I guess this is just me as someone who is has yet to see them live.



and for those who see the guys multiple nights in a row, and then say they are disappointed in the show, its not a "never enough" moment, its more of a "your lucky they are a band who likes to change up their set list, town to town, tour to tour." moment.


They can't please everyone... but at least they can make a few happy when they can

i donno... thats just me...

Ok, but I am totally loving Jordan's video diary.  I think it's awesome how he let's us into these "moments"
while on the "off" times.   It's like "Wow, I wonder what they did today..."   :D :D :D

Or... what trouble is Jordan AND James causing today  :D :D

Yeah, really!! Just a couple of scamps!! ;)

Hey, anybody know where that video is of them at the truck stop? I can't seem to find it.

Thanks, Ash!! I drive over the road and I was curious what truck stop they were at, since I'm familiar with alot of them. Mike said they were in MD, and I figured out they were at the Flying J. I'm pretty sure I know which FJ they were at, and it's one of our fuel stops. I always wondered if one of these times, I would see the guys on the road late one night(I know I would flip if I saw them in the store when I go in to get my fuel receipt!!). I see tour buses all the time on the road, espescally when I'm fueling, they're pull in next to me at the fuel pumps. I've seen Chris Robinson's bus, Jason Mraz, The Mars Volta, Rascal Flatts, Eric Johnson's.... In fact, Eric Johnson's tour manager was so impressed that I even knew who he was, he came over to my truck(the manager, not Eric), and gave me one of his picks!!

Hell during the PN08 Tour, the guys had to drive through Oregon to get to their California show, From Seattle ... and I bet the stopped at the few truck stops along the way there... (Naturally I had to be at a lacrosse game, at least we won the game) but i'd be the same way... esp to see them mulling around the candy.  :D

Off topic from the thread title, but you live in Portland, right? Then you'd be familiar with Jubitz. That's a really nice truckstop. I was watching a show on the Travel Channel called The Top 10 Truckstops in the World, and I was thinking "I bet one of those on the list is Jubitz", and it was!

Back on topic, on the one video with James, Jordan & Mike, I kept thinking, "Look at all the stuff Mike's getting!!". Of course, Jordan's thinking ths same thing!!

 :( Naturaly a ticket that is in my price range.... is on the other side of the country  :( AND I can't even use this option for other shows... because Oregon and Washington isn't covered  >:(


I should just give up even trying to see the guys live and just do my usual stuff online here  :(

Yes, I was in Wallingford last night and first, just let me say that DT get better each time I see them!  They were spectacular!  I was really happy and surprised with the set list (including the awesome "Forsaken") and of course, ending with the Count!  DT remain the finest musicians in the genre, bar none...and James, your singing was SUPREME!
Now, the bad stuff.  I know I'm going to get slammed for this and I've heard (and agree with) all of the prior posts about why they chose to do what they did and this is my opinion only:
I understand that it is called the "Progressive Nation Tour" and DT are trying to introduce their fans to other bands, but as far as I was concerned, I was bored to death for 3 hours!!!  I won't comment on each band, but I couldn't believe the standing ovations that were being given to ZMZ!  It's beyond astounding.  I guess it wasn't my thing.  I respect all of you for enjoying it and some of the musicianship was very good, but the music and songs were horrendous!  Should I have thought long and hard before going to the show when I saw these bands on the bill knowing nothing about them?  Probably.  Lesson learned.  If DT have opening acts again, I'll do my homework next time and if necessary, sit in the bar until the real band goes on.
Thanks for a great night DT-you are and will always be the best!
P.S. I still don't quite understand many DT fans though (I had my fist pumping for much of the set, but I saw little of that around me).

Well, I'm not going to slam you for your opinion. I respect what you have to say, whether positive or negative. I see what you're saying. Last year's PN, it got me into 2 of the bands, 3 & Opeth. BTBAM wasn't my "cup of tea". I ws anxious to check out Opeth especially. This year, I purposely missed the 1st 2 bands on the 1st couple shows I saw. I had least had heard of Opeth before I saw them. Never heard of these 2. I kept being told 'you really should check them out'. I finally did in MD, Scale the Summit is all instrumental. Not my thing. This is why I can't seem to get into LTE(although I LOVE DT's instrumentals). Bigelf was OK, also wasn't for me though.  I had seen ZPZ, last year, even though I wasn't familiar with Zappa's music. To me, they were entertaining, but I don't see myself buying any of their CD's. In fact, in Orlando & Asheville, I didn't get to the venues until late, almost 9:00, because I just didn't feel like sitting through all that again.

And was it just me, but did it seem like ZPZ played longer than DT?

P.S. The Oakdale crowd sounds much like the lame crowd at Clearwater!! Sorry to hear that. Did they at least stay standing? I can't even say that about Clearwater!! >:( ::)

Then perhaps you ruined the show as much for them as their preference for sitting ruined it for you.  I just don't understand why ANY audience member should tell another how to enjoy a show.....and common courtesy suggests that in a seated venue, the people in front sit so those behind them can see the show they paid to see as well......then again, common courtesty is not so common anymore....

Not getting at you personally Underground, just stating that there are as many people who can thoroughly enjoy a show from a seated position as those that like to stand for hours on end.....and in the end, if you treat someone with respect and courtesy, chances are pretty good you will be treated with respect and courtesy as well.....

I am an older fan, and it is nearly impossible for me to stand in line for hours only to stand for the show as well......it isn't a matter of wanting to or not, it is a matter of a body that cannot take that kind of abuse.....does that mean I am not allowed to enjoy the show from a seated position??

i totally agree with you Subu, though i never sit at the concerts myself. Knowing that, I always buy tickets to the dancefloor, not to make any inconveniences to others. I'm young and strong enough to endure a few hours of standing in line and then a couple hours of the show. If it's a seated-only venue, I buy tickets to the very rear sectors where people usually stand too.

I agree... for the most part depending on who the opening band is, you sit. When i was at a Queensryche Concert, Don Dokken opened, and everyone say for that one, because it was an acoustic set. but once Queensryche got on stage, you couldn't sit, mainly cause it was a small venue.



I guess if someone told me to sit down, I'd say "Sorry I paid good money to see them live. This may be the ONLY time in my life to see them, so I'm going to enjoy it my way. You don't like it... too bad. You are not going to ruin MY concert experience"  But then again... I'm not really that nice about things.... ;)

For those who think DT doesn't notice: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALh1cKrjj-4 the guys are going to make you STAND  :D

Thanks.  I read on this forum that ZPZ played for 1:20 and DT played for 1:40 and that's what it turned out to be.  Too bad.  Yes, the crowd stood, thank God!

Well, I'm not going to slam you for your opinion. I respect what you have to say, whether positive or negative. I see what you're saying. Last year's PN, it got me into 2 of the bands, 3 & Opeth. BTBAM wasn't my "cup of tea". I ws anxious to check out Opeth especially. This year, I purposely missed the 1st 2 bands on the 1st couple shows I saw. I had least had heard of Opeth before I saw them. Never heard of these 2. I kept being told 'you really should check them out'. I finally did in MD, Scale the Summit is all instrumental. Not my thing. This is why I can't seem to get into LTE(although I LOVE DT's instrumentals). Bigelf was OK, also wasn't for me though.  I had seen ZPZ, last year, even though I wasn't familiar with Zappa's music. To me, they were entertaining, but I don't see myself buying any of their CD's. In fact, in Orlando & Asheville, I didn't get to the venues until late, almost 9:00, because I just didn't feel like sitting through all that again.

And was it just me, but did it seem like ZPZ played longer than DT?

P.S. The Oakdale crowd sounds much like the lame crowd at Clearwater!! Sorry to hear that. Did they at least stay standing? I can't even say that about Clearwater!!

The last show I went to people actually asked me to sit because they couldnt see since THEY were sitting.  I looked at them like they were nuts.  I have NEVER sat at a concert.  EVER.   >:(

Really?! I go to alot of concerts, everybody from Metallica to Barbra Streisand, and alot of times, I'm in the upper section. Not alot of people standing up there. And believe me, when you go to some of the "slower" concerts where the majority of the audience is older than you, everybody's pretty much sitting!! ;)

I am an older fan, and it is nearly impossible for me to stand in line for hours only to stand for the show as well......it isn't a matter of wanting to or not, it is a matter of a body that cannot take that kind of abuse.....does that mean I am not allowed to enjoy the show from a seated position??


I hear ya, I'm an older fan, too. For the most part, I am sitting for a show. For DT, I'm usually standing, and the past week, I've been paying for it with my legs & feet being sore the next day. One night, I was awoken to the worst cramp in my leg. It took a while to get that out!!

Well..I guess I should explain.  I dont really go to a lot of slower bands where people sit during the show.  If Im at Metallica... or if anyone is.. how the hell do you sit??   Ive seen Crue twice in the last year.. no one in NY was sitting.  Saw Van Halen.. no one sitting.  Metallica twice.. no one sitting.. in fact I was actually amazed how insane the pits were for them!  Havent seen that since the Justice tour!  Anyway.. Im just supirsed at a rock show this would occur. 

Im not young anymore myself, but its almost a thing of respect to some bands.  The last time I saw DT was the first time I have seen a lot of people sitting.  It just suprised me.  And I did sit so the people behind me could see.. so Im not that much of an ass.  lol 

And how the hell did you get dragged to a Barbra Streisand concert????????    :o

Dragged??! I don't get dragged anywhere. My musical tastes are very diverse and I've loved Barbra ever since I was a kid. I've also seen Tony Bennett, Liza Minnelli, Neil Diamond(twice), & Barry Manilow(4 times). And then I've seen Metallica 7 times, Queensryche 8 times, Aerosmith 4 times, Extreme 8 times, Rush 4 times, Def Leppard 6 times, etc. I'm not trying to brag, I'm just making a point. And I wasn't dragged to any of these shows. ;)

Well, we were sitting during Neal Morse's show in Gelsenkirchen, but as soon as DT started we stand up  8)
Although through the years I must say, it's very exhausting to attend a DT show, but I'm sorry, there's no way I can or will sit during a DT show  ;D

Anyone have an idea of how long the 2 opening bands play for, and/or what time ZPZ comes on?  I don't have much interest in seeing anyone but Zappa and Dream Theater, and it would be great to have an estimate of when to go in.  Ticket for tonight at Asbury Park says 6:00 pm showtime.

No it was a good thing.... that and it might help keep this board about the current tour with the guys  :D

according to some on Mikes forum, this was kind of a bad show, not from the guys but the venue itself.  :( The guys were awesome, but the sound quality from the venue was enough that many feel it wasn't a full experience, If you happened to go to this show, please elaborate about this.

So I went to Brookahaven Saturday night, and The Beacon on Sunday.  Both shows were awesome!  They played great and sounded amazing! 

Zappa plays Zappa was entertaining, but BigElf was a huge suprise to me.  They kick ass!  On the Sunday show at the Beacon, Mike played drums on a song for Big Elf and with Zappa later on.  And Dwezil came out and joined them for Metropolis.  Def a great time!

The show was fantastic.  I was surprised that you had arleady put up the setlist.  The one thing that you didn't report was that Mike sang "Bobby Brown" with Zappa plays Zappa. Other than posting the setlist that has already been posted, I will see if i can get pics up within the next couple of days.  Nothing else to say than what else hasn't been.  James sounds better than ever and they all get better like a fine wine.  To my friend Donna.....what can I say I am still glowing   :P...muah bella  :-*!

RUSH COVER- THE CAMERA EYE (MOVING PICTURES ALBUM)
THE COUNT OF TUSCANY

Hey Donna, Marianne how was the show, AND the cover?


Yes, well, I guess my work here is done!   :D  That indeed was the setlist, and I tell you.  What a show.  I felt like from the moment those lights went down, I was living in a "dream" (no pun intended)  I am ALWAYS and FOREVER in awe at how these 5 men can just play together like that and invoke emotions in me like no band ever before.   The Rush cover was AWESEOME - we almost knew here in YYZ it was coming, but that anticipation of which song they would play is half the fun.  It's not a Rush song that had any radio play, but that's the beauty of it.   My tears flowed like water during Hollow Years, and I just about blew a gasket when Jordan did the intro's to Forsaken and TCOT.  My heart welled with joy to be able to sing those two song nice and loud WITH JAMES in a CROWD that big!   :'( ;D   My husband jokingly warned me that if I cried during TCOT, I would be in "trouble"   :D  I told him, "It's my concert, and I'll cry if I want to!!!!"   :D :D :D   
James - your voice ....my God help me.  I don't give a crap what anyone says - YOU HAVE PROVEN THEM WRONG, AND should SHUN your critics.  PERIOD.  NO SINGER - NONE....has pulled on my heart strings and manages to produce such emotions that I can not contain.   
The interaction between John P, Jordan and John M was electrifying to me.  Mike - always a crowd PLEASER and a crowd ROWSER (sp?)   They have been doing this for so long together, they just fit so well and I can't IMAGINE WHY anyone in their RIGHT MIND goes and start threads like "who would be good in DT".  Now and forever, that question in moot, and you should have your fool head examined.  And if I sound like a fangirl, to whomever is reading this, then take that attitude somewhere else.  In my world, IF IT AIN'T BROKE, DON'T NEED FIXING. 
My bittersweet end was knowing that the TCOT was the last song.  I cried like a baby during the end of the song. 
Whatta concert.  And yeah, I was the CRAZY blond in the 14th row with the glowsticks haivng a blast!

Very very nice to be close in seating to Marianne, hubby Bob, and bro-in-law Darren (nice to meet you!).  It was wonderful to share the concert, and the glow time!  We also had a nice time hanging out afterwards! 

We do indeed have pictures - I have more of John P though...James does NOT sit still!!!    :D :D :D  And I don't have the best camera either.   :-\  But what I did get, I will try to post within the next week.  For now, I am in "recovery", and now, must to return to my normal life as a housewife and mom - so I gotta go do some laundry, and go get my baby from my parents' place!   :D :D :D  In all this, my daughter with the foremost thing in my mind when she said to me BEFORE we left "Mummy, I wanna come see James too!!!"   :D

Marianne - don't forget to include in your pics and little "blurbs" about how you were witness to James before hand with his children and wife.  Amazing that these men have maintained successful households with loving families while doing what they do. 

Enough now......will weed out and post my pics soon./me floats away to get back into real life

Yes, well, I guess my work here is done!   :D  That indeed was the setlist, and I tell you.  What a show.  I felt like from the moment those lights went down, I was living in a "dream" (no pun intended)  I am ALWAYS and FOREVER in awe at how these 5 men can just play together like that and invoke emotions in me like no band ever before.   The Rush cover was AWESEOME - we almost knew here in YYZ it was coming, but that anticipation of which song they would play is half the fun.  It's not a Rush song that had any radio play, but that's the beauty of it.   My tears flowed like water during Hollow Years, and I just about blew a gasket when Jordan did the intro's to Forsaken and TCOT.  My heart welled with joy to be able to sing those two song nice and loud WITH JAMES in a CROWD that big!   :'( ;D   My husband jokingly warned me that if I cried during TCOT, I would be in "trouble"   :D  I told him, "It's my concert, and I'll cry if I want to!!!!"   :D :D :D   
James - your voice ....my God help me.  I don't give a crap what anyone says - YOU HAVE PROVEN THEM WRONG, AND should SHUN your critics.  PERIOD.  NO SINGER - NONE....has pulled on my heart strings and manages to produce such emotions that I can not contain.

Ooh Donna, YOU, as no other can discribe exactly how I feel during a DT show and therefor I was so excited to read your review, thanks for that  :-*
I'm sooo happy to hear you had such a great time !! Please show your pics no matter how good your camera is  :D

Well said Donna!  All the things that we all share put eloquantly into words...well done my dear.

Any Dream Theater show for me is a trance-like experience for me.  Somehow, someway these songs speak to me and helps me make sense of the chaos of life.  Call it spirtuality, call it healing or just call it music for what it is. These men are the MOST talented, down-to-earth musicians I know of.  As for the show last night in particular, TCOT was the clincher that moved me to the core.  There is no words to describe the emotion that not just I, but the entire crowd collectivley felt as James orchestrated his way into each and every one of us.

To Donna....It was great again to share this experience with you.   Thanks again for a great time and all the laughs we shared.  We will do it soon enough bella...not too later though  :-* 

Pictures witll be up soon enough....gotta lot of stuff to do this weekend, let-alone this week.

Caroline, I am being open and honest now.  I write these things from the bottom of my heart, hon.  I want to come by completely genuine with what I have said.  I have no ulterior motive...believe me.   I sang to my heart's content, and didn't care ....we wore our glow bracelets, and I am NOT hiding who I am anymore.  I am proud to be doing this, and proud to call myself a fan and how this band's music has touched my heart, my soul and my life.  I know they must here this a lot, and maybe get a bit  ::) ::) ::) about it, but you feel it when you hear a song like TCOT or ANTR ...and older songs like ACOS or LTL get played live.  It's that one lyric.....or one line.......
Hey, laugh at me for crying at a concert............I don't care!  My tears are REAL.  My happiness and enthusiasm are not because I WANT anything.  It's because this band just KNOWS what to write about and sing...it just ALWAYS happens to be WHEN I need to hear it......and THIS is what floors me.  So when it is played LIVE.......mama just looses it....and doesn't care who is watching. 

Sorry....didn't mean to babble.  I am still on a DT hangover....I may be this way for a while..... :'( :)

Hey sweetie thanks ! That's just it !! I can't tell you exactly how I feel, cause well as you know English isn't my first language. So I can't tell it in those words, but when I read it Donna ! :-* You being so open in the quote above, is again how I feel..well except about the glow bracelets  ;D Don't have those  ;) I think that's what happens when you are in our generation..I won't care either if someone sees me cry at a DT show. These guys are the only ones who can make this kind of emotions coming out for me as well and I love them for this ! You know...I need to get these feelings out once in a while...

Yes I can asure you it was a magical night!

I was watching this strange band Bigself without much attention when suddely some crazy fool ran out on stage and started hitting the drummers cymbals! They changed seats and he actually in my opinion made them sound better, not that their origional drummer was bad or anything. ::)

They show was good. Nightmare to Remember totally rocked! I wished I didnt had a seat place when I saw how many that actually bothered to jump! ;D Mike was on FIRE, he spitted, smiled, made flashy improvs all time! Petrucci was into hes playing, Jordan made a cool solo duet with a pre-programmed keyboard, and Myung was where he always is and played! ;D I have to say that James looked pretty tired most time on stage. He sang very good, in tune all time and got all hes screams and notes, but he didnt looked to comfortable. As soon as he could he left the stage. But Im not complaining about that at all.

Btw James seems to have lost weight. 

During the show some funny things happened: Someone throwed some kind of food (hamburger?) to James. He picked it up and said "Sorry man I just ate!". Then he gave it to MP for some reason who looked like he almost was about to eat it, but then throwed it backstage.

During "Dance of Eternity" the drums and the guitar suddenly disappeared. Mike started imidetly to play a solo to entertain the worried crowd. They got the power back and they started to play from the place they were cut, but then after just 5 seconds same thing happened again. Mike laughted and said in the mic "Theres just to much rock going on here tonight! Thats the same riff it was cut on twice, thats the Meshuggah-riff. Sweden dont want those riffs here!"
Then he played another drumsolo for a short while, power went back, then he said "Lets start to play from another part of the song!" Within seconds the band had already came clear from which part they were gonna play from and started to play again. Then the power was gone again!! Now Mike looked very pissed, and he started to play more on hes drums. All the other members left the stage. But then they got it back again and Mike called while laughting "All bandmembers back on stage!". Then it worked for the rest of the show! I sat on spikes for a while, hoping the power wouldnt cut again!!!

Wither, Lie and Count of Tuscany was probably the songs I enjoyed the most. Most of the old songs had been kinda re-made with new solos and stuff! Thats cool.

Cant for them to get back to Sweden again!!

Good to hear you had fun Erik, and I hope DT guys had fun too, despite those sound problems. I heard Swedish crowd handled it very patiently - and besides you've got some drum solos for that  ;) . And the sandwich incident is on youtube, too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VN7dgvRMuKs

Thanks for posting that video, Natt. The Mirror is one of my favorite DT's songs and I haven't heard it live yet. I hope they play it in Berlin. And to bring even more adrenaline in me, it wouldn't hurt to hear As I Am too ;)

Btw I take back when I said that James looked tired. When I look at vids from the show he actually looked very fired up this night, really enjoying it.
Trying to remember how it was makes us remember wrong things!

Anyway, that is the setlist. Awesome show. James in great conditions (funny how he forgot one part of The Count... hehehe, it happens!).

By the way, I didn't know Bigelf and liked them veeeeeeeeeeeery much.

Oh ok, Ash it's easier than your username hehehe. It's amazing how when they finished playing In The Name Of God and said goodbye I was like WTH and then looked at my watch and noticed so much time had passed with only 6 songs. Then I expected the encore with The Count of Tuscany and time to take a train back home.

I will write a review of the concert and let you all know if you're interested in reading  ;D

Bydgoszczystpynyczscdgo doesn't exist at all  ;D ;D

It was a joke from James, and it made the Portnoy-board... Hence why the only two Google-hits on Bydgoszczystpynyczscdgo will direct you to MP.com.

The concert took place in Bydgoszcz. Don't worry about the last four letters, it's just one sound. But Polish is hard to transfigure ;).

in Natt's defense.... if you don't speak that language then it is :P

Thank you Ash for defending me,  :-*
But I must have been totally misunderstood. I do indeed know how to pronounce Gelsenkirchen, as I speak German a little. What I tried to do was to make a joke referring James's trouble in pronouncing both "Bydgoszcz" and "Gelsenkirchen" (Caroline should know EXACTLY what I mean)

Okay, here comes my short review to the concert Sunday night at the Zénith in Paris:
- I'm sorry, that I can't upload pictures, but at uni it's forbidden... I may not be on the board either, but I give a sh** ;) -

The show started with Unexpect. They were okay -  I didn't know them before, so I enjoyed the unknown sound of the band and the combination with the violin. I liked it, but I heard lots of people saying that they didn't. However :) I liked it more than Bigelf who followed... I had the impression, that they couldn't get us rockin'... Maybe this is the reason why Mike came out for playin' the drums, which was fine 8) It worked out and we started to rock.
Then came Opeth. I was a bit disappointed that they started with a calm song which destroyed a bit the atmosphere that finally started to glow... But after that song they rocked, played some old songs and I really lliked it. They saved their show  ;)
Well then, finally when I thought I really couldn't be upright anymore because I was already very very tired from the night before, they came :)
The show was great but I had my troubles to get a good view as I'm so small, lol :P The guys rocked and the atmosphere was loads and loads better than before - obviously because it was DT on the stage  ;D
I would have thought that James - as canadian - could say a bit more in French than just "Merci beaucoup" lol, but obviously he is one of the English English Canadians, which I always forget... ;)
The sound in the hall was great.
As I don't like the new CD that much - I prefer the older ones -, the concert was for me a bit too technical because of the newer songs. But all in all, I can't criticize it because it's my proper taste!
As you already have the setlist, I don't have to post it again ;)
It was strange, but when they left the stage, I had the impression they only played half an hour... and I was a bit disappointed. Well, maybe because I'm not used to concerts with supporting acts. I always had pure DT shows so they played longer, hehe. And of course it was my first concert all alone without my beloved brother in a new town, so it was both: great and sad. Next time I will surely NOT go to concert without him and preferably in Germany as I prefer the ambiance :)
All in all, I was happy to FINALLY see the guys again on tour, because I didn't have the possibility during the last 3 years and missed some nice concerts in my region.

Well a funny anecdote:
In the metro I met a girl and guessed right that she's German, too, as she had an accent. We found out that we never heard of each other but have actually a friend in common ;D The world is sooooooooo small!!!! It's a pity that she had only a place to seat in the concert and we coudln't rock together. But anyway! DT is always good to make new friends - if it's not on the board, it's in the concerts  :P

I am back from Rotterdam and it was f*****g GREAT!!!  ;D ;D

Me and my friend missed Unexpect due to her traffic jam in Dutch torrential rain... We arrived in time to see Bigelf. What a treat! I can recommend this band to anyone. They mix retro 70's rock with modern progressive rock in a Deep Purple/Black Sabbath-style. Other influences are The Beatles and Pink Floyd. You can imagine how that can sound original with heavy guitars and good songs. I loved being able to see them.

Opeth was next. Mikael Akerfeldt once again was his funny self  :D I like his talking and cracking jokes in between the songs. People not knowing them could have been forgiven after one song for thinking this wasn't going to be so bad after all, since they started rather mellow with two songs (played as one) from their acoustic album Damnation, namely Windowpane and Death Whispered a Lullaby. Then the fury broke loose. "Some people will call this noise", Akerfeldt remarked briefly. "Others think of it as sex." And there The Lotus Eater started, unleashing its furious riffs, drums, basses and wild guitars on a big, bif crowd. It was great to hear this music played for so many people. It is an extreme type of metal after all that normally only is played for smaller audiences. The sound was great. I won't name all their songs here. They played for like 65 minutes. Among the songs played were Deliverance, Reverie/Harlequin Forest, April Ethereal and Hex Omega.

Around 21:15 Dream Theater started. Of course it was no surprise to see them start with A Nightmare to Remember. James tried to get the crowd behind the band and he succeeded well, thanking two extra screens on both sides of the stage. I'd say everyone had a good view on the band. The video's/animations shown on the video wall behind Mike once again were great to watch. Ever seen big, calm elephants walking in a hallway of a hospital in a very disciplined way? Holding each others tail with their trunks? I for sure didn't before tonight! During the songs the footage was both fun and entertaining.
A Rite of Passage was the second song, with on the screen stuff from the known video. I have to admit it's my least favorite track on BC & SL, but live it was good. Then I got surprised. The band left the stage, apart from John Petrucci. He got the spotlights on him, and played some awesome playful guitars. Nothing too complicated, but oh so beautiful. Think of the solo in Lines in the Sand, mixed with the one in Goodnight Kiss, but then in a faster, more diverse way. You could see the emotion on his face. It build an introduction to Hollow Years, played in an alternative way. It was my personal highlight of the whole set! The sound was so great, the song was stretched a bit and added even were some extra vocal lines right before each chorus. It is hard putting into words what this one made stand out. Hearing it did the trick  :P
Let me summarize the rest. In order we got The Dance of Eternity, Prophets of War, Wither and Take the Time. At least, I think that order is correct. Maybe The Dance and Prophet were played in opposite order, haha. I am tired. It was awesome to hear an old song like Take the Time, by surprise. One cool thing of this tour is that we can never be sure what songs to expect. Could it have been Lie/The Mirror, or In the Name of God? Or Constant Motion? It could have been  ;D

Of course it all ended too soon. The wound was securely bandaged by The Count of Tuscany which I once again loved. The mellow middle section was so great. The whole concert Dream Theater played lasted, I think, a good 100 minutes. Not a minute of it I didn't enjoy.

You all know enough  8)

I believe the extended version of Hollow Years you refer to is the original version of it before it got chopped up for the album.

Martijn already gave a great review of the show itself..so I'll just keep it to my meet and greet  ;)
Oh...and James, did you try some candy yet ??  ;)

F I N A L L Y !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 8)
OMG, this was soooooooooooo worth it !! :o I loved every minute of it and the DT guys just ROCKED and were so kind...First one I talked to ?... Yep, of course.....MIKEY !!! WOW, I know he was a great guy, but he was so patiently with me, being so nervous :)
I had a drawing for him from my youngest son Max and he was like oooh, how cute and said; 'do you know I have a son named Max as well ?' and he showed his tattoo...Of course I knew <gg>. I gave him the new Cirrha Niva (Dutch band with my friend Tommy as their drummer) cd and Mike said he recognized the name, really cool ! Mike signed the cover of his In Constant Motion dvd and when I walked away, he said; 'don't forget this....it's yours', oh my I almost forgot it !!!!
I gave all the guys some Dutch 'drop' candy and one bag for all of them with chocolate 'Kruidnoten' (sorry, there's no English word for it ! It's a cookie)...
They all were enthousiastic about it.I'm glad I gave Mike a letter with things I wanted to tell him, cause I forgot everything when I got in front of him !
Then John Petrucci....wow..what a smile the guys has (ahum..) <g> He signed the cover of his Suspended Animation cd and I told him as I did the others; thank you so much...then I said, and Rena too ! He looked at me, still smiling and said, oh ? I said yeah, you wouldn't be here without her !!! He laughed and said thank you :)
Jordan signed the picture of me and my boys I made for the Wheel competition and said it looked great.John Myung was sitting quietly as ever, but smiling when I said thank you to him as well signing the cover of his instruction video and said thank you to me :)
Last one....James !! He recognized me and I gave him the picture of him and me after his solo tour here in Holland in 2005. He signed it and I thanked him for posting on his board every once in a while. He said he will do it again soon and he shaked my hand and wished me a great show !!!
THANK YOU DREAM THEATER YOU GUYS ROCKED MY NIGHT ! AN AWESOME NIGHT TO REMEMBER FOREVER !!
YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A big THANK YOU to Flemming as well for being there with me and to my hubby Rik for being patient with me and my DT fangirlism, haha !

A video of Sacrificed Sons in Brussels
(the vid is not too good but the sound is fairly audible)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZ1w-inXo2M

One of my favorite DT songs ever, it never fails to give me chills, but to me personally, this performance beat the Score one. As for the vocals, i can't help noting that even though James's voice has obviously been in a very good shape throughout 2009, it still seems to be building up with every show. Simply  :o :o :o

I think they are running at the 2 hour mark (given how there are many long songs) the only other band with them is their opener Pain of Salvation. Other then that I have not been able to find how long their concerts are going.

this thing is huge... 5 ft by 3 ft or larger....

Thank you. I´m a little bit disappointed, but maybe they will come to Europe next year. I thought that " Black slouds and silver linings WORLD TOUR " means that they´ll tour around the world and not just south America :P . But maybe I have missed something. I am not well informed these days. One more time sorry for my english :) . Have a nice day.

Well, in a way it is a WORLD Tour. At least it covers such parts of the world as Europe, Russia, North America, NZ and Oz and South America, if you count PN 09 as part of this tour. Fair enough it is a WORLD TOUR, it's just that you missed them last year. Where are you from?

I think there is a small hope for me to see them again at Turkey for the BC&SL world tour. They did Octavarium twice but maybe they'll do again.  8)

Maybe we need to repost Mike's comment about the rest of this tour (as of November 09):

Quote from: Mike Portnoy
"As 2009 is finally winding down and no DT plans have been made public yet for 2010, I'd like to just give a quick rundown of what we have planned to prevent any rumors or speculation that I'm starting to see brew....
 
As you know, after Thanksgiving we will be heading down to New Zealand for the very first time and then over to Australia (with special guests Pain Of Salvation)...and then we will return home to our families for the holidays and New Year...
 
In an unexpected move, we will then enter the studio right after New Year's to write and record a brand new instrumental track for inclusion on the upcoming Gods Of War 3 soundtrack. This will mark the first time in the band's career we have written and recorded an exclusive track for an outside project. Roadrunner invited us to participate and we decided we were up for the challenge!
 
Next on the agenda will likely be a South American tour in the late winter / early spring...but we are still awaiting details on this, so of course plans are still subject to change...
 
Speaking of changed plans, I'm afraid I have some disappointing news for our North American fans: after serious discussion within the band and evaluations with our manager and agent, we have deciding against doing another US run in spring as we had initially planned...for many reasons, it just is not going to work out as we had originally hoped. (and yes Texas, I still remember we owe ya next time!)
 
Essentially, this means the BC&SL World Tour will conclude with South America (if it indeed happens) and the only remaining DT shows in 2010 will be some possible festivals and one-off shows that may (or may not) happen towards the end of the summer.
 
So that's the 2010 forecast for DT....
 
The 2010 MP forecast is another story....
 
Although I do plan on having some down time to enjoy with my family....I do have several things on my agenda that will keep me plenty busy (of course!)...
 
As most of you know, it's looking VERY likely that Transatlantic will hit the road with some shows in support of the newly released reunion album "The Whirlwind"....it looks like we found a nice little window in mine, Pete's, Neal's and Roine's schedules to make this happen in the Spring.
So we are currently looking into doing some select shows in major cities on both sides of the Atlantic during this period (it will be our first truly "transatlantic" tour - as we only did the US for SMPTe in 2000 and only did Europe/UK for Bridge Across Forever in 2001)
Details of these shows should start to firm up soon, so stay tuned...
 
In addition to the Transatlantic tour, I also have several other exciting possibilities up my sleeve for 2010....so time will tell what pans out and become realities....
 
So there ya have it for now!
 
Inevitably, some people will be disappointed in our plans and complain (and blame me!)...others will be excited and overjoyed (and thank me)...but it is what it is..,it's our lives and our career and this is how it looks to be shaping up for the coming months/year...
 
OK, there ya go! You're now in the loop....
 
Thank you for a GREAT 2009 (so far) and looking forward to more in 2010,
 
MP "


I know people who had been waiting for 20 years to see the show of their dream...
at the rate it keeps working out for me... it might be 20 years :P

Title: DT Mexico City date review: March 7th 2010
Post by: Arkabarca on March 11, 2010, 02:53:22 am
Sorry I haven´t had time to do this but I promised a review so I´ll try to express the best I can, considering my English vocabulary limitations (sorry for all my mistakes)…anyways here I go:

Mexico City, March 7th 2010, exactly 7 pm Bigelf started to play...We (my brother, a friend and I) were arriving to the National Auditorium (one of the best venues in Mexico City) in that moment after eating an hamburger outside and drinking a beer...we stayed just a little outside from our entrance door meanwhile they were playing the first 3 songs (I recognized Portnoy´s voice,  when he thanked after playing Blackball, but we didn´t see him because my brother was finishing his beer  :P)...after their 5th song when the people started to feel motivated for their music...THEY STOPPED! ...we said: "What the f*ck?".. they played just 25 minutes!

Well but we went  to see DT so we said: “ok , the main food will start yet”…we waited for 20 minutes more and  at 7.45 pm “Also Sprach Zarathustra” started to sound….and then “A Nightmare to remember”…great sound, great execution…I was trying to sing but I had a terrible sore throat that was affecting me seriously…so I let James Labrie do his job … after that “A Rite of Passage” (my least favorite BC&SL track), “Hollow Years” (JLB like always showing his great quality of voice) by the way in this song James extended the lyrics  between the  “wake me across the water”  and “…and maybe you´ll understand “ parts…someone knows what is the extended lyrics there? …ok, then they continued with “Prophets of War” ,  the amazing “Whiter” (again JLB in his best!) lyrics well recognized by my countrymen fans who were singing loudly more than other song , “The Dance of Eternity” (one of my favorite songs so I include this moment in the highlights of the show)…and then “One Last Time” ….sorry, but maybe this is one of my least favorite track in all the DT history…so I really didn´t enjoy this moment and I noticed the people was returning to their seats…fortunately they continued with a “cheerful” song to animate the audience and although “In the Name of God” in general is not in my Top 15 of my favorite DT  songs , its instrumental section, without doubt, is in my Top 3 and I really enjoyed the virtuosity of every musician, great job! Curious Fact: In a part of this song, JLB tried to raise his microphone´s pedestal to the audience for singing but he accidentally threw it in the fans!!!  It was fun! …Finally “Pull me Under-Metropolis “(I think  the audience in general wasn´t excited like I expected with these songs, I don´t know why) and closing the concert, like every show in this tour, the great The Count of Tuscany…End of the concert:  9.45 pm…exactly 2 hours….

Ok..you think that´s the end of my review…maybe it´s the beginning…and the following I´ll write I´ll do it with all the respect (and mainly with all my honesty) I have to you all JLB members (with the risk you hate me) but especially to this amazing band formed by these absolutely “out of this planet” musicians, but in my humble opinion: maybe it´s the worst tour I´ve ever seen…not in the way you think, because I insist: I can´t discuss the excellent quality and level of the performance of every member of DT  and I know (and understand) they have years and years making awesome records one year and the other on the road which must be so tiring for everyone and maybe that´s the problem, at least in my case, their high level made me more exigent  fan. I didn´t want to know a tendency in their setlists and I wanted to be surprised with an special set in a new Mexican and SouthAmerican Tour but..nope…almost the same setlist than Progressive Nation Tour …In my very humble opinion I felt that set unbalanced, I noticed often many people returning to their seats (opposite to the concert I saw in 2006) and just some guys of  the front rows standing or jumping…I love most of the songs of this setlist but I think many of them weren´t the best option trying to animate the people…I refer some cases like “Propehts of War” and “One Last Time”…and now the most disappointing thing for me: everything indicated to me like they (or their managers) were watching their clocks meanwhile they played…with an awesome precision they finished the concert in 2 exact hours…that finally responding me why those long (and sometimes boring) guitar and keyboard introductions in some songs, why the abuse in the duration of some instrumental sections like in “Pull me Under- Metropolis”, instead of playing more songs …in fact they didn´t allow an “encore” before The Count of Tuscany, a traditional moment of every rock concert (as you know) ,where the audience ask for more and when the band responds to the call it´s very pleasant for the fans…maybe they didn´t because their time was about to finish and perhaps they had another important compromises…After they played the Count of Tuscany, Mike said: “Muchas f*cking Gracias”, the another guys said “goodbye” too  and they gone…and immediately the lights in the Auditorium  were turned on… I could notice in not few faces that they were shocked like “Was that all?”, “Are they sure?”, and some of the guys screaming “otra…otra…otra…” waiting in vain the return of the guys… and I felt a bad taste in my mouth at that moment…disappointed, sad. I highly recommended to go to another friend who was in another place in the Auditorium and immediately after the show he sent to me an SMS in my cell phone “we paid for this?” I felt worse…

Like I said, this is my very humble opinion…I understand they have many places to visit and maybe they are tired…but many of us have to move too many kilometers (1300 in my case) and spend too much money and sacrifice many other things for being there…and I thought it wasn´t fair …I know it wasn´t DT´s fault at all, but it looked like they were running because their next concert the following day in Guadalajara…I really don´t know what happened…

This doesn´t mean that I´ll quit to buy their amazing records or to admire and recognize their virtuosity as a musicians but maybe next time I´ll think twice (or more) for going to another concert.

Sorry for this guys, I hope you don´t hate me…I didn´t want to hurt your feelings…I´m really ashamed with you for writing this but I just tried to be as honest as I can. I would wished to make another kind of review.

If you got here without wishing kicking my ass, thank you very much.

Thanks for sharing your review with us Arkabarca!

Although I can't imagine DT show (without forced breaks/ or being reduced due to tech problems) being a disappointment to me, apparently it can be one to others. I didn't quite see what exactly you were disappointed about... the setlist? I agree, it's up to everybody's taste, you can never please everyone. Extended solo sections? Come on, that's an essential part of what DT is about! Rushed encore? As long as there WAS an encore, I don't understand what's to complain about... Only 2 hours of music? But isn't it what every town they play in gets?

I hope you don't take it as a kickass, I'm just trying to figure out why you didn't enjoy the show as much as you'd expected. Considering I have the same problem of covering long distances to see a show, I can relate to the fact that putting so much time, effort and money in that trip you expect it to be paid off.

In fact, this is the first (mostly) negative review I've heard about Mexico City show, many feedbacks I've heard were very positive. As it turns out, that doesn't work for everyone. Well, let's hope you'll have more luck next time you get to see DT  ;)

don't worry about it. I should have said something about it sooner. If anything it just proves that I'm a little OCD about the tour dates.

BTW Laura, I've been reporting the tour dates since the 8V album :)

Hey everyone,

I'm back to the forum... Once I was TheSurrounded and some might remember me. Hey Donna, I'm back!
Well, I came back to talk about the Rio de Janeiro's concert, which was increadible! As you have the setlist, I won't repeat it. However, the setlist was more than that, I mean, Solitary Shell was folowed by an increadible instrumental session, in which Mike created sounds in the iron parts of his drumms.

James said "this is our last night in Brazil and we want to finish with a blast"! And indeed thay did. The public was crazy, everybody singing every single word and sometimes it was dificult to hear James' voice, for it was an 5.000 people chorus! And James, what can I say, perfect as always... thank you James! I rocked our night!

In my opinion, Curitiba and Rio had the best setlist (not that the others were bad), but it was very heavy, and Petrucci and Mike realy wanted to rock, despite beeing that the last night of a serie of shows. The first DT concert I attended to was in 2005, after beeing a fan since 2000. Dt was missing here since 1997, and all the country was waiting for them. It had a great atmosphere and untill today has an emotional appeal to me, but last saturday was the best, maybe because I like BC&SL more than Octavaruim. (again, not that 8varuim is bad...)

Check out the videos my brother in law made, not in hight quality, but gives an good idea of the night and the instrumental parts...

Laura - I don't know if I mentioned it before, but I began a thread when we "converted" to this Board :
http://www.jameslabrie.com/forum/index.php?topic=19.0
It's basically if you would like to write a message to James and express your feelings.  Now...I did put a  little "warning" on it, and I will repeat it here:  Please be respectful to James AND HIS FAMILY / PERSONAL LIFE.  This is NOT a thread I created for these crazy ladies who go around screaming "You're hot!  I wanna have your 15 love children!!!"  I would like to think we are a bit more mature than this.   ;) :D  I created it with the intent that if you want to express appreciation for the music and the singing, then go right ahead.  We know he comes here and reads when he has time, so who knows?  He could read your messages as well...... ;D

They played last night in my home country, Venezuela. As some of you know, I live in Germany nowadays, but I was excited 'cause my brother, whom I initiated into DT, went to see them for the first time. I'll update this post when he tells me more.

By the way, they played The Mirror, which is one of my favorite songs and they haven't played it on any of the 3 concerts of them I've attended.

First edition: My brother told me this was the setlist:
A Nightmare to Remember
Beyond This Life
A Rite of Passage
The Mirror
Lie
Keyboard Solo
Prophets of War
Hollow Years
Wither
In The Name of God
The Count of Tuscany

Oh, and he's there somewhere, almost front row: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wjc4gp-RBZA&feature=sub

Mike also said that they are looking into the possibility of one-off headlining shows during this summer tour in between cities...we'll see which other dates are added

Dream Theater will be doing a few select headlining shows on some of the days off throughout the Iron Maiden tour.

Please note these will not be traditional DT shows in terms of production...as it is in the midst of the Maiden tour, we are not carrying our usual lighting and video show...so instead these will be small intimate club shows...just like the good(?) 'ol days!

So come sweat it out with us.....

June 21, Roseland Theater, Portland, OR

July 2, Newport Music Hall, Columbus, OH

July 10, Palladium, Worcester, MA

All Opening Acts TBA

DT is unique in that fashion of not playing the same setlist twice... who knows Friday's setlist might surprise us.

Could be funny if Maiden brought JLB on stage during The Number of the Beast to do the scream IMO :P

And it's kinda disappointing how there probably won't be many shots of DT's opening shows...could be interesting to hear Home done at 2010 (and I don't live in North America so I can't really see it personally).

Like, all songs picked are very "metal" and medium-length, so as to adjust it to what Maiden fans are likely to prefer, a killer opener As I Am and a greatest-hit and MTV-friendly Pull Me Under for wrapping up, also one of the latest singles AROP and more or less TV-friendly Constant Motion. Best way for a heavy metal fan to get introduced into DT music. Kudos to MP

so there's two things going on through my mind:

a) thank god i'm not watching dt with this setlist
b) sucks that i didn't get a tix to watch maiden and this setlist. they are playing mostly from their last 3 albums which i dearly enjoy but i thought they were going to play the same songs as their previous 5 tours..LOL. so yes, it sucks to be me..

on the other hand, i might go to fates warning in san antonio

Mike stated in an interview with Roadrunner that the songs he picked where what he felt the IM fans might know about DT, either singles or music videos that fit the "sound" of IM as well....

Woo hoo! I'm so excited!! I'm going to the Newport Music hall show in Columbus, Ohio on July 2 of this year. That's a small venue but it has great accoustics and every band I've seen  there sounds great. I'm also seeing DT with Iron Maiden on July 15 at Blossom Music Center. Blossom is outdoors but me and a buddy from work got great seats way down in center section towards the front. Costed over $100 US/ticket, but well worth it!

this may certainly NOT be the best quality of audio and video, but I managed to sit it through and this is probably the best vocal performance of Home I've ever heard (to me, winning over studio version as well). The spoken lines in 2nd verse send chills down my spine.

To be honest. I try to watch all the performance Iron Maiden and DT done in this tour and sorry for that but Iron Maiden is not like I expected. Bruce's voice is meh and for the DT, they are rocking even the short setlist. James's voice is in super shape...

No don't get wrong pls. Iron Maiden has been my favourite band of all time and Bruce is great of course. But his range has been down. What I get from videos from youtube Bruce's voice is out of shape. Of course maybe it's just me...

Ok, well, when I heard El Dorado I thought "well, looks like age's finally taking its toll on Bruce's voice", but judging from live videos I've seen so far, he sounds more than all right

Portland Show review:

First off I was not allowed to take pictures at this show. And the pictures i did try to get on my cellphone fail to no end.

 I was located in the 2nd row, on JM's side of the stage... right in FRONT of the speakers (yes i had ear plugs). For some reason every time James ended up near my side of the stage, he would chuckle at four of us in the crowd. Not to mention James had a slight "beef" with some guys in the upper level who has been giving one of the crowd control guys down below some issues.

A NIGHTMARE TO REMEMBER: after starting with psycho, once the thunder began, the black curtain instantly came down and we could see the WHOLE band. The song sounded great for the small venue. There was a LOT of sound in that small space.
CONSTANT MOTION: This song sounded great too. JP did do a little weird riff in the intro, that sounded slight off key, However it added to the charm of the song.
HOLLOW YEARS ( with extended intro)As everyone knows the intro from Budokan, this intro was longer and has a LOT more depth in it. Jordan allowed the keyboard to "wonder" and JP just jammed away his hearts content, while still keeping elements of the solo we know. James also sang that extra verse that MANY of us are unfamiliar with.
MIRROR (with puppies on acid intro): As this song began with the heavy riff, simple enough Mirror, THEN they went "minor" and played a few bars of Puppies, then back to Mirror. Surprised a lot of us.
LIE: segwayed the same way it did on the album. Heavy, full of sound and James even played with the chorus melody a little. during the "Mother Mary, Quite contrary..." verse, James picked two older guys who were drunk in the upper level, and was using them for his own "amusement" "you tell me 'bout your two more comin' but one's just enough for me," The entire time James is looking at them and pointing at them, it was enough they really didn't give the crowd control guys down below any trouble.
A RITE OF PASSAGE (with an Ipad solo): while James did not get is vocals as low as he did in the recording. He did give the song its own charm live. For a band who had spent two weeks straight of playing the same songs, and came off two previous days of rocking, they still gave the song life. For the solo of Jordan's that was very game like, he had a holder for this Ipad, and was showing off his new Ipad app and what it could do. Playing this solo on it like he played his continuum.
Home (mike jam off): Cutting out the long intro from the album, they broke out into the juicy chords before the verse. at the end Mike decides to "solo" and go into a drumming frenzy all the while the lights are reacting to his drumming and strobing along.
Panic Attack (Keytar solo): Strobe is the main way to describe this song. the entire intro was strobed. then right before the verse JP used a very murkey chord to lead the way. towards the middle of the song, James seemed to smack his hand really had with the mic stand, but he didn't throw it at us :D. when Jordan's solo came about, he brought the Keytar out and jammed it with the Johns in the middle of the stage.
As I Am: James had fun with this one. Every time he said "For those who understand, I extend my hand." He would make sure the crowd section he was in front of could nearly touch him. Yet again he made his way to my side, looked at me and a couple of kids and chuckled as he walked back to the center of the stage.
PULL ME UNDER/METROPOLIS (with Ipad intro, and JP and Jordan riff Duel):Half PMU half Metropolis. As the song changed to Metropolis, they decided to have an extra jam off, noodle around. JP started adding little bits of random riffs here and there, even playing like a little kid and just strumming like crazy. Mike kept following and added little random kicks here and there. Jordan grabbed the keytar again and decided to have a Riff off with JP from across the stage. the little duel lasted about 5 min. We did get a little "ass and balls" moment from Mike during once of the verses. While finishing up Mike decided to add to the ending and keep playing. Jordan stopped playing they keys, JP and JM kept holding chords, and James after about a min or two, sat near the drums and just looked at the guys, waiting and sighing. Them Mike, looks around and suddenly ends his drums, leaving the guys hung to dry and finishing their chords a half a beat behind.
THE COUNT OF TUSCANY: This sounded awesome. You can all guess how it sounded leading up the the guitar "solo." once the solo arrived, JP added little extra wails to his time and was getting the crowd to cheer randomly while he was playing. 
Overall that show has been very impressive. A couple of time through Mike the camel would spit and he nails James on the hand and even in the hair... (it was nasty, and without missing a beat James just causally wiped the back of his hand off on his shirt.) For a show that was a 3rd night in a row for them, James sounded in Top form, and the guys gave the show of a life time.


Auburn Show review:
I do have photos and videos from this show, however they camera i was using wasn't the best quality.
 Each song sounded just as good if not better then the Portland show, however a bigger more open venue can do that. Ironically I was just about located in the same stop for this show as I was in the Portland show. Given this was a 4th night in a row for the guys, they sounded like it was the first night.
one thing about the IM show though, the Fans were very rude about DT opening the show. most of them said that at best they would get three songs, and the guys would take all the time soloing for no reason.  By the time Dt reached Home, they had a new bunch of fans. and by the end, IM fans were saying they could not believe DT was that good, and they had to check out their stuff when they got home.
During the show Mike was trying to get fans to throw the horns in the air. He looked over at me, I did it for him, then he kept pointing off from me to my mom (who was right behind me)and help glaring her down trying to get her to do it as well. After three tries mom did it and Mike smiled nodded and went back to jamming. Then throughout AROP Jordan kept glaring at me as well, until i started singing along. Then he smiled and went back to jamming along with his riffs.
Not like i would be hard to miss... I was the one in the crowd with the bright orange bandanna

We didn't end up staying for the IM part of the show. by the end of Dt's set the IM fans were getting very rude and shoving us about. Finally i had enough and just left my spot. When we got back up to the main area, my mom and I pulled off our mosh pit bracelets and gave them to two fans who didn't have much, (they spend their money on two IM shirts and were worried if they had enough money to eat) I hope they got to enjoy the show and got their food like they were talking about ;)


the swag: got the 25th anniversary shirt that was posted here with a piece of each album on it during the Portland show. Then at the Auburn show, my mom bought me the 2010 tour shirt and the 25th anniversary sweatshirt.

(I'll try to put videos and pictures up at a later time.. i'm still trying to see if they are worth posting... bad quality and all)



EDIT: BTW I wish i could figure out three songs that were played over the speakers before and after the show. before was two acoustic covers of DT, with As I Am and Pull me Under... and at the end was a mix of A Rite of Passage, Michal Jackson's Thriller and a Queen song.

I had a great great time both maiden and DT did an awesome show.. got to the amphitheater a cpl hrs early and parked at the 3rd gate on someones property for $10 and hung out in his shaded yard and met some cool drunk guys lol casual metal concert goers, after a while we went to the gate and they opened it to go get in line, we were 1st in one of the frisking lines lol then got up to the grass dead center pretty much and waited for DT to start. after DT kicked ass Iron Maiden kicked some ass too lulz then once the show was over it took us 10 mins to get to our car and leave, no traffic for us as the guys driveway was unblocked so no one could cut us off.:P that was nice.. as we had a 4 hr drive home to eastern washington, better than waiting 2-3 hrs waiting to just get out of the parking lot. anyhow I'm not much of a reviewer lol as you can tell. I recorded all of the DT set with my digi cam in HD and mostly all of maidens except 3 songs.

i couldn't stand being in the venue after DT played... the IM fans were rude to no end. Once I got out i could hear IM and i wasn't too impressed with their sound.... but at least you had fun ;)

btw I am so impressed by your camera... I wish mine was that good.

^^the main reason I wanted to go to the show was because of DT. Iron Maiden blew me away though and I was very pleased I got my moneys worth to see two amazing bands, now the next time I see the boys hopefully it will be a 2 + hr show. the 50-60 min set wasn't enough for me. and thanks its a good camera bought it so I didn't have to sneak my camcorder in to film shows anymore, this camera has 12x zoom dolby digital stereo mics and shoots in 720p HD so it gets the job done, plus I can take photos lol just have to pause filming but nothing wrong with that.\

here is PMU its the only one that is cut, I had to change my battery because before the show I took lots of photos and video of trip.

Yup, that was the setlist for last night's show!  What a night for a concert.  The weather was perfect, and we had a great time with our friends.  The show:  Well, what can I say that I haven't before?  I needed this outlet VERY VERY badly.  It was only a 45 minute set, but hey - they were the opening act, and it's better than nothing.  I think the people working the sound board didn't do as good a job as they could have - even for Iron Maiden.  It was SUPER loud, and the range was very very high.  However, this didn't stop me from just about keeling over with happiness that I was there.  I sang my rear end off.  I was sweating just as much as James - by the time they were done, I was once again, emotionally spent, and unfortunately, wanting more music from them.  My fav parts were when "As I Am" began....singing the part about "Victoria" in "Home" at the top of my lungs....Panic Attack tore at my heart (because it's part of the Octavarium CD) and of course....Pull Me Under has a special place for any DT fan over 35 yrs old. 
All in all, I got my DT fix - FOR NOW.   ;) :D  I wish I could have gone to the one off show in Buffalo, but the timing is all wrong, and it's not possible for me to do so during the week.  I hear that it's sold out anyway, and after last night, I had my fill of a crowd of 16 000 people, thanks! 

In all honesty - if I had a choice, I wouldn't see DT as an opener - depending on who is opening.  Iron Maiden played the same setlist as we have been reading about, and we (my husband and I ) knew almost none of it.  But there was other stuff too that sways me from seeing IM again that I won't bother getting into here.  So, the next time I see DT, I hope to see them as the main attraction. 

Still, i am happy.  It was a rough Winter.  And I was able to scream a little bit of that out of my system last night. 
Thanks again, DT.

a little article from Mike about this tour: (from http://www.ultimate-guitar.com (http://www.ultimate-guitar.com))


Mike Portnoy: I Feel Maiden's Pain

 Mike Portnoy admits Dream Theater  are finding their tour support slot with Iron Maiden a struggle. But he says his band's problems are easier than the headline act, who are facing the wrath of fans on a nightly basis.

The drummer tells Goldmine: "It's a weird adjustment for us to be the opening band. We've only done it a couple of times in our career. It's awesome to be on stage with with the mighty Iron Maiden – they are a big part of our history and a big influence.

"On the other hand, we're adjusting to the smaller stage space, shorter set length and the things that happen when you're the opening band. It's strange – but it's worth it in the end."

Portnoy has put together a Dream Theater set which he hopes will act as a "crash course in the band's metal side" for Maiden fans who aren't familiar with their music. It's the first time the prog giants have stuck to the same set every night on a tour, which makes him glad the band have never had any hit singles.

He says: "I would hate having to go out and play the same songs because that's what people want to hear.

"I'm seeing that with Maiden right now. They've chosen to do a set list on this tour that's basically songs from the last ten years. And there's a big backlash from some of their fans.

"I can understand that fans want to hear the hits, but I can understand that Maiden don't want to be stuck playing the same songs for the rest of their lives. They put out new music so they want to play the new music."

Maiden will headline Sonisphere at Kebworth on July 31 - August 2.

Thanks for the report to RockRadio (http://www.rockradio.co.uk/rock-news/portnoy-i-feel-maidens-pain/gilg8859/).

Well....I can only re-iterate.  I won't see them as as opener again.  IMHO, they don't deserve that - they deserve a hell of a lot more - more space, more freedom.  I like it when they are in control of what they do.  Not what other promoters or bands tell them to do. 
But that's just little ole fan girl me..... ::) :D

on contrast of the Portland and Auburn Show, i can say that to go from full show to opener I see where Mike is coming from.

Good set last night in OH; James sounded  great.  Pretty decent reception from the crowd (that was still filling up throughout their set), and thank goodness the row behind me were DT fans so we all stood without pissing people off.   I think I may have seen Myung's wife walking through the crowd with their kids...if it was them, they were adorable  ;)    I know it will be a while before they tour again, but I'll be looking forward to a headline set.  The Maiden tour was a great opportunity for them though, and I congratulate the guys on it.  After next week, enjoy a rest!  (well, except for MP!)

You were at the Ohio show at Blossom? Where did you sit? Me and my co-worker were in row P way down center section in front (about 10 rows back from the stage). Dream Theater were great. I saw them on July 2 at Newport musc hall also in Columbus. Fantastic show. I enjoyed the Iron maiden theatrics at Blossom (it's always cool to see Eddie lol) but wasn't familiar with many of the newer songs so I couldn't really get in to their live performance.

Yep, I was in section 23 though (second set of sections back, but still pretty good seats); and I was also at the Newport show on July 2  :)    I only stayed for half of Maiden; I don't dislike them, but just never got into them that much.  I thought Bruce sounded pretty good, the rest of them are pretty boring to watch, and all the songs started to sound alike to me.

No, it's all right, so that James and Bruce form a vertical line of vocalists, and all the guitarists are next to one another, either vertically or sideways;-)

!Blasphemy! *waves burning pitchfork*

Only kidding :)  But what don't you like about Jordan? I'm a fairly recent DT fan so I've yet to get attached to his predecessors. :)

Excellent photos, by the way!

Thanks!

Re: Jordan, I was always a Kevin Moore fan, and I think Awake is their best album.  After his departure (right after it was recorded), he started doing his own stuff (Chroma Key, and eventually O.S.I. with Jim Matheos of Fates Warning).  I think I dig CK & OSI more than any DT since Kevin's departure.  Re: Derek Sherinian, I liked him.  He was a good rock keyboardist.  Re: Jordan, he's very technical, but lacks a lot of emotion.  And when I've seen him live, I get really irk'd about his tone.  I dunno... it's all subjective.

dude, did you have the huge lenses White Camera, or that nice Rebel (from what i could see it was) during that concert?

A Canon DSLR with a 15x optical zoom (60x digital).  I had a photo pass; so I was able to be right up front for the first 3 songs.  My camera is far from professional grade... it's basically a point-and-shoot with a bigger zoom.  The lighting usually sucks in Roseland; so that's why most of mine that were B&W turned out better than the Color shots.  i wish I had a better camera, but I make do with what I've got...

Mike already said it many times, there won't be a DVD filmed this tour. Too bad.

!Blasphemy! *waves burning pitchfork*

Only kidding :)  But what don't you like about Jordan? I'm a fairly recent DT fan so I've yet to get attached to his predecessors. :)

Excellent photos, by the way!

Thanks!

Re: Jordan, I was always a Kevin Moore fan, and I think Awake is their best album.  After his departure (right after it was recorded), he started doing his own stuff (Chroma Key, and eventually O.S.I. with Jim Matheos of Fates Warning).  I think I dig CK & OSI more than any DT since Kevin's departure.  Re: Derek Sherinian, I liked him.  He was a good rock keyboardist.  Re: Jordan, he's very technical, but lacks a lot of emotion.  And when I've seen him live, I get really irk'd about his tone.  I dunno... it's all subjective.

Pfff

Don't get me started on the DT's keyboardists..LOL

Dan hits it right in the nail. My favorite DT album is Awake. Kevin's lyrics and playing was not flashy but it completed the song in some way. Derek's playing was also great and he is probably my favorite keyboard player right now. His solo stuff is excellent and features many great players (both in his solo stuff and in Planet X). Derek can combine the best of both worlds: atmosphere and technicality. Falling into Infinity is a great example of this. While Jordan is probably the best keyboard player in the world, I do think sometimes he just pushes it with his solos and wankery (I dig his solo stuff a lot more than his playing in DT). He can do atmospheric playing (listen to Listen, Resonance, Secrets of the Muse, etc...) but unfortunately the producers (JP and MP) don't use this playing anymore.

I tend to see this "keyboard comparison" as DT stages. Each one has it's own pro's and cons' but I still love the music. I love one era more than the others but that's just a question of taste and will vary person to person..

Fair arguments, with extra points for the amusing use of "wankery".

I've never listened to JR's solo stuff - have you a recommendation for where to start?

LOL. Almost spilled the water in my mouth for the extra points I used..LOL

Well, it depends. Rhythm of Time, Feed The Wheel and the Rudess-Morgenstein Project are the ones I listen to the most. The other ones I listed (Secrets of the Muse, Resonance...) are more of the atmospheric/piano like stuff. It's great stuff to listen when you want to relax. I think of those albums was written for one of Jordan's friends who was recovering from heart surgery or something in that vein. Rhythm of Time and Feed the Wheel are the most song oriented albums. Some great players in those two: Terry Bozzio, Rod Morgenstein, Joe Satriani, Kip Winger...The RM Project is more fusion oriented. I would say start with Feed the Wheel and Rhythm of Time and RMP. His last one Notes from a Dream are piano only Dream Theater songs. Pretty cool to hear his piano versions of DT songs (mostly the slow ballad like DT songs). I would get this one as well. The Road Home (his next to last album) are Jordan versions of some of his favorite prog songs from Gentle Giant, Genesis and others and features Neal Morse, Steven Wilson, Marco Sfogli, Ricky Garcia, and I think Rod on drums as well. I'm like this one but not as much as the ones I described before.
