I saw Dream Theater FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER on July 10th in worcester, Massachusetts!

Dream Theater:

A Nightmare To Remember
Constant Motion
A Rite of Passage
Home
Hollow Years
The Mirror
Lie
Wither
Panic Attack
As I Am
Pull Me Under
Metropolis Pt. 1: The Miracle and The Sleeper
Encore:
The Count of Tuscany

Charred Walls Of The Damned: (The opening band)

Blood On Wood
From The Abyss
Scream Machine
Creating Our Machine
Ghost Town
The Darkest Eyes
Fear In The Sky
Voices within the walls
Manifestations

It was REALLY quite amazing as I was right on the barrier and everything!.

Also, this is an epic clip from the show!

Man, heard about Mike leaving earlier this week. Fuckin sucks. They still have it, and i think could have been churning out good albums for a while yet, but alas, it is not to be :(

After reading Mikes article about his retirement from the band, it's quite understandable. I do, however, hope that one day he will return. Even if it is in years to come.

I haven't heard anything off it besides The Back Of Angels or whatever, which I thought was mih - the keyboards were the only thing about it that stood out to me. Haha

Go.

That way you can see how much Periphery fucking suck and how much Dream Theater kick ass, ESPECIALLY live.

Legit, Dream Theater is easily one of the best live bands ever - and i'm not even that big of a DT fan.

You seem to enjoy them enough. :P As for the European tour, haven't listened to Periphery before but I should see Dream Theater at least once in my lifetime. I'm sure my friend will be up for seeing them in Manchester in February.

The new album that I pre-ordered ages ago has been shipped out today. The earliest I should get it is Saturday.

Meh, I only went with the standard version. The bonus tracks were only instrumental versions and I can live with just the standard version. At least Black Clouds & Silver Linings had covers. When it comes to pre-orders, I rarely go for the big stuff. Just the CD with possibly some bonus tracks will do for me. I don't play vinyls and considering the postage prices for them, I'd rather stick to CDs.

The tickets are like £50 each, this is way wayyyyyyy outside my £20 boundary, are they really worth it.

50 FUCKING POUNDS?! That's slightly more than the ticket prices for Manowar in the UK in November as well as being more than Maiden for their UK tour this year. My friend isn't so sure about seeing them due to the extreme prices and my sister won't be happy about it either.

Using an exchange rate site gives me $79.40. May as well round it up to $80. The rear tickets for the show is around £37 and that certainly isn't cheaper than $40.

I see. Looks like we're all getting fucked.

To be fair, dream theater shows ALWAYS range in prices.

When it's a festival, or back when it was the progressivenation tour, it would obviously be pricie. And when the Iron Maiden/Dream Theater tour happened in North America that was expensive as fuck. (The show nearest to me was like 80, 105 and 145 bucks respectively depending on which type of ticket you wanted)

But Dream Theater headline shows, outside of festivals and prognation, tend to be cheaper - I saw DT with Charred Walls Of The Damned in a standing venue last july on one of their few one off shows for only 45 bucks.

Maybe part of the reason the shows are so expensive is because it's been over a year since they last toured? Either way, prices are crazy.

After several listens, I can say that although it's a decent album overall, there are still some forgettable tracks. The better songs are Lost Not Forgotten, Bridges In the Sky and Outcry. Beneath the Surface has its moments for offering a non-typical album closer for Dream Theater. I'd say this is their weakest effort since Falling Into Infinity. That's not a bad thing, though since it suggests everything from SFAM through BC&SL are good or better.

I really like Bridges in the sky and outcry, but I think my favourite on the album so far is Breaking all illusions.

I'd say this is their weakest effort since Falling Into Infinity. That's not a bad thing, though since it suggests everything from SFAM through BC&SL are good or better.

It's not their worst in my opinion, but as you say, it's definitely not their best either.
