Once.  Chicago, IL on the SFAM tour, the second leg of the tour when they did not play the full album, but instead played ACOS for the encore.   :metal

Haven't had the desire to ever see them again.

8/9/98      Wantagh, L.I., N.Y.   Jones Beach (opening for Deep Purple. ELP was the middle act).

12/29/98      NYC, N.Y.      Irving Plaza (home for the holidays show -- awesome gig)

2/6/00      NYC, N.Y.      Roseland Ballroom (Dixie Dregs opened) -- I'll never forget being swallowed up by the crowd during Home and going from one end of the venue to the other almost in the air. Crazy.

1/19/02      NYC, N.Y.      BB King’s      Debut of SDOIT material. Was really cool seeing that stuff for the first time.

3/22/02      Boston, Mass.      Orpheum Theatre   

9/14/02      Wantagh, L.I., N.Y. Jones Beach (Joe Satriani and King's X opened...Doug Pinnick guested on Lines in the Sand, iirc.

7/26/03      Concord, Calif.      Chronicle Pavilion – (w/Queensryche and Fates Warning)

7/27/03      Sacramento, Calif.   The Cove - (w/Queensryche and Fates Warning)

3/5/04      San Francisco, Calif.   The Warfield - (Train of Thought tour -- bummed, because of technical glitches, show got cut short and they never played ACOS.

7/28/07      Berkeley, Calif.      Berkeley Com. Theatre   (Redemption opened this gig, along with Stu Block's old band whose name is escaping me at the moment).

6/20/10      Concord, Calif.      Sleep Train Pavilion (DT was opening for Iron Maiden)

9/24/11      San Francisco, CA   The Warfield   (first show with Mangini, if memory serves me correctly)

A total of 12 times. But it has been going on six years since the last time. I regret not seeing the self-titled record tour with the Awake suite. But unless there is a compelling reason like that, I'm not sure I'll see DT again as a headliner (if they came here on the I&W anniversary thing, I would see that). Been a fun run. :)

Damn, that's a great list there Stewie!

Thanks! I've been fortunate to travel a lot in my line of work, and seeing them in different countries has been really neat.

My first DT show was in Chicago for the Gigantour back in 2005.  Amazing tour.....Megadeth, Fear Factory, Dream Theater, Dillinger Escape Plan, Nevermore, Symphony X.  Pretty insane lineup and very cheap tickets ($40 for GA which was right up front).

New listener to DT - almost 2 years now. I have seen The Astonishing 3x. Oakland, Anaheim and Reno.  Was supposed to go to the Denver concert
tonight, but my son became ill and I had to fly home yesterday. :'( Had M & G also..    :yarr  Bummer.
But, who knows, maybe I can get to Dallas at the end of the tour.

Commitment
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

If so, I'll see you there. Had to miss the 2nd set and encore. So only chance is Dallas.
