i have to say that i am really sad for China fans.
here in Indonesia we also had this cancellation experience back in 2006, and the promoter also made a "hatred" open letter to all DT fans in Indonesia, and to the band leader at that time, MP.
it was not easy for me and the fans to determine which side was right and wrong. but in the end, the love for the music beats anything else.
we just want to hear DT's music no matter what the band and promoter problems were.
Indonesian Dream Theater Fan Club never gave up the hope and kept doing DT Tribute night consistently over the years, and promoting the love for DT.
it was very sad also that our efforts paid off only a year after MP left.
it was other promoter that brought DT last April, with a very huge publication via national televisions and more than 200 billboards around Jakarta.
i believe DT fans in China will forget evetything thay matters now and DT will play again there. and i hope it will not after JP leaves the band.
