Yea but after being a DIE HARD Styx fan for 10 years, they finally decided to do a tour where they brought out like 3 songs they'd never played live before in their career, and like 6 more that they hadn't done since the late 70's or 80's, and that was the one time they didn't come to the West Coast at all. I was NOT a happy kid at that time. I'm glad you guys say there's no chance of DT doing that, I would agree!

Just to make sure... DT would never skip southern California, right?


Last tour they played here 3? 4 times? Once at the Nokia Theater (LA) and The Grove (Anahiem), and then the Grove again and then at The Gibson in Studio City :)


I'm just tired of driving down to / through LA. Santa Barbara would be AWESOME...
You forgot San Diego!   :P


Was that the other Socal date added along with the second date at The Grove? I forgot about that :lol


Scotty have you been to the Santa Barbara Bowl? If so... wouldn't you agree that it would be a cool spot for DT to play?
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

Apparently, according to DT's facebook... they are playing The Palace Theatre in Greensburg, PA

But seriously, are there enough DT fans in the Santa Barbara area to fill a significant franction of it?  Even if you pull in the booming metropolises of Goleta and Oxnard?  :lol

Well it looks like they are in Canada before heading to going to California (with an aching in their hearts), so in theory San Fran would be before LA. So maybe the 17th or the 18th.

Ugh. The Tower is a nice venue itself, but...

Hope they play somewhere better in Philly this time. I'm not driving through the murder capitol of the world (Camden) and several areas of Philly which are probably just as bad / if not worse to see DT again.

So, yeah. Probably missing DT. That, or hopefully they play NYC on a weekend.

Any chance of additional shows in LA or the OC?

dunno.  Massey Hall is the same indoor venue they've been playing here since ToT.  It's a perfect concert hall... the acoustics and atmosphere are perfect; but a drag that it's only a 2k or so seating capacity.  Problem around here is that there aren't any bigger indoor venues suited for concerts, until you get to the Air Canada Centre (our NHL/NBA arena) .. and there's not enough demand for them to pay for that kind of venue.

I like it better when they tour in the summertime here, as there is a perfect outdoor venue with 7k + grass seating.  But that ain't gonna work in March.

They're certainly not playing smaller venues in Europe. It'll be interesting to see where they play in NYC.

They for sure are playing smaller here in Minnesota. The Burnsville Performing Center is not usually a concert venue. It has about a 1,000 seats less than where the usually play. Also, my first reaction was: where the hell is that? :lol
