Got my tickets for April 19th at the Orpheum. That would make it 4 times - The Nokia in LA, twice at the Grove of Anaheim, and then now at the Orpheum in LA. So stoked!

Hopefully I will be able to get tickets for this :/
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

I know I know but money is tight at the moment with Christmas and all.


I hope to be able to work on tickets next month.

grew up in Boston area.  Moved to Southern Cal after college.  Provindence shows:

Fix for '96

Lupo's WHJY birthday party (FII pre-show) featuring first ever live performances of New Millenium, Hollow Years and album version of Burning My Soul.

Would have been 3x in providence, my friends invited me to the '95 Change of Seasons leg, but I had to pass on opportunity because I was preparing for my first college film shoot the next day.

I hit all three of those Providence shows.

Loved The Strand.
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related

I recall at some point in the show a girl walked up to the stage and gave Derek roses, and James joked "Oh sure, give roses to the only unmarried guy in the band."

I have just seen them live once in Costa Rica on August 12th, 2012. I hope they go to Costa Rica again (since I can take for granted that they won't come to Panama), and I think they will because the show was an absolute blast.

Hi to all, this is my first post, been a regular visitor to this site over the years, if I need to know anything, this really is the place to look. First discovered DT in 2001, after someone advised I listen to SFAM. Since then I have been a massive fan. Seen them live 4 times now and have tickets for the Wolverhampton UK show to make it 5.

Manchester Apollo - 2004 (TOT Tour)
Newcastle City Hall - 2007 (Chaos in motion)
Leeds Academy - 2009 (BCASL Tour)
Leeds Academy - 2011 (ADTOE Tour)

Really looking forward to Wolves gig in February, anyone else making the long trip from the North East?

I don't remember that. I'll have to listen to the bootlegs.

At the Lupo's show, we were right on the side of the stage, and MP's wife and baby were standing right next to us.

Lupo's was a great show.  First time they played New Millennium among other FII tracks (I think).  I was probably next to you.  Talked to MP after the show about Metallica's Load and other stuff. (probably because they mixed some metallica riffs into Metropolis during the encore).  MP was getting out of his rap stage at that point.  Saw his wife for the first time at that show too now that I think about it.

Manchester Apollo - 2004 (TOT Tour)


Thanks for the first post.  I would imagine the 2004 show was amazing, as was every rotating set on that tour.
