despite the fact the lights decided to move, and James decided to brush something off himself... this is rather one of my most favorite pictures i took during the show.

The encore for SLC was UAGM, not Pull Me Under as posted above. 
Had an amazing time in Salt Lake.  The M&G was cool and all the guys were extremely nice.  Had a nice talk with James about his amazing vocal performances on ADTOE and Static Impulse.  After the show I talked with him about the acoustic songs and about how much I love that.  We chatted briefly about Rush doing that on the VT tour with Resist.
I really got a kick out of how all five guys took time with everyone after the show.  MM is so freaking nice and happy.  My Man Crush on him is continuing to grow to disturbing levels. 
Don't know how to post pictures, otherwise I would share some.  My M&G picture turned out good.  Unfortunately, my after-concert shot with the Captain turned out a bit blurry. 
James did sound great (particularly in the acoustic songs).

 Cool WHOA!   What a show!!!    I am not very skilled as a reviewer, but I do have my thoughts, and since James did state they do read their boards I will pass on my perspective…
PROS – The new lineup simply RAWKS!!  James was simply on FIRE last night.  I don’t know where all the negativity is coming from that I read on the internet – like how he has to warm up etc.  He nailed everything from the first note to the last!   JMX could be heard in the mix, finally, and was stellar, as usual.  He and MM seem to have a good chemistry and are tight and solid.  JR’s contributions were tasteful and less “over the top” than before and I am grateful for it!  The keyboard elements fit the music.  JP was – well, JP.  Tens of thousands of notes seemingly effortlessly being generated for each song…..and backup vocals that were spot on!  And MM – what a GREAT addition to DT…..it really boggles my mind to think of what he has had to learn in the past few months, and then for him to perform  so well!  Even the clam at the beginning of Fatal Tragedy was recovered from extremely well and went unnoticed by many.    His drum solo was a real pleasure to listen to and be amazed by.    The “lighter” portion of the set – Wait for Sleep and Far From Heaven, were, simply, beautiful!    New songs we heard were great live…..we had Bridges in the Sky, Build Me Up, Break Me Down, the aforementioned Far From Heaven, Breaking All Illusions and On The Backs of Angels.   BMUBMD was not a fav of mine but I like it much more now having heard it live.

Pull Me Under - always a Chicago favorite......

(the order may have been a little different than what I posted above, but I believe all the songs are accounted for)

CONS – Why oh why do some sound guys think we paid our hard earned money to have our hearing destroyed???  While the sound is usually really clear and good in the Rosemont Theater, the sound people had the drums and bass turned up so high it was actually painful, and consequently it drowned out most of the keyboards and a lot of JP and James’ work.  Vocals were hard to hear, JP was low in the mix and JR was practically not there at all……and the sound was overall just TOO loud!  When the sound starts clipping and distorting and making people in the theater plug their ears, it is too loud.  The nuances get lost and the musical experience is reduced and that is what happened last night. 
Other cons – Trivium.  I’m sorry – I just felt like we listened to one obnoxiously long song (even though there were several – they were all the same meter, same key, same “groove” (if you can call it that) and those horrible cookie monster vocals….and FAR TOO LOUD!  It was literally deafening.  While they played with enthusiasm, the music was just not something of interest to me. 
Anyway, great show overall – love the new stuff and was impressed by how the older songs retained their sound but had new dimension with MM at the kit…..THANKS DT, for another great show!!!!

I hear you! It seems to be the fashion lately or something. When Anathema played after DT at the Loreley, the bass drum and the bass were extreeeemely loud for those of us front row. And with Judas Priest last August in Berlin it was also the bass drum and the bass that were extremely loud, making my chest vibrate terribly with every beat and taking from the whole musical experience. I've never used these ear things, but I'm gonna have to buy them if that's the way it's gonna be at every concert I visit :S

Great to read those reviews!! I am glad the guys pleased you all so much.

I decided not to go see them, the risk is too high... In mid-winter, with chances for snow and ice on the roads.

I have often wondered why Trivium is opening for them....What does this band's music have in common with DT's music? Besides both being metal?? I have a strong feeling Roadrunner placed Trivium with DT, and DT did not have a choice on who to take out on tour with them...I could be completely wrong.
I mean seriously...why not take out Myrath on tour??!! But instead Trivium?? Myrath would INSTANTLY get the recognition they deserve and be overnight successes touring with DT.

I am not looking forward to my ears being blown up...Your review makes me nervous!! I am used to losing my hearing for a couple days after a show....but your review sounds likes the music is even MORE loud than normal.
I paid for my VIP meet and greet package for the Boston show. I can hardly wait, and it seems still so surreal!
