My first post here. Hi everyone.
I went to the concert last night, which was my first one in Europe (I am from Australia originally, living in Glasgow for a year) and I thought it was brilliant. It was a bit weird when they did the two acoustic songs and the front half of the crowd sat down (everyone up the back where I was stayed standing) and then when they went back into the rock, the front 10 rows stayed seated. I was like WTF?
I love the song but when they played TSCO, I almost cried. Especially that opening bit by JP, that was beautiful. And I enjoyed Pull Me Under as the encore. All in all, it was a great night. Didn't think too much about Periphery. If they got rid of their "singer" they might be alright as an instrumental band. He was just awful and they obviously didn't do much of a soundcheck for them because for the first two songs I barely knew he was singing, which turned out to be a good thing in the end.
Anyway, Dream Theater ruled!
