2.) The current version of DT are just not interested in maintaining the inclusiveness Mike Portnoy fostered with the fans

Honestly- Wow. ridiculous. The DVD is being held up because they're trying to put SO much on the DVD. They're trying to fill it completely up so WE can see TONS of extras. http://vimeo.com/66857833 17:00

#3:  They haven't said anything because things are in flux with the people involved in actually putting together the DVD and getting it out, and rather than release news that ends up being wrong next week when something else ends up happening that causes another delay, they are waiting until they know something concrete to give us. 

It can be frustrating not only on our end, but also for the band, to have information put out there, and then have to keep retracting and changing it as other obstacles arise.  I think it's a safe bet that unforseen things have popped up and that the band aren't getting answers with enough certainty that give them a comfort level that they can give us anything certain right now.  Yeah, they could take a moment to let us know there is uncertainty, but I could also understand that they don't want to do that and appear like they don't have any control over the situation (even though they likely don't).  I would guess it's something along those lines.

This all might be true, but a message like, "Sorry for the delay on the DVD/Blu-Ray, DT fans, but it's coming very soon, and trust us, it will be worth the wait! Just be a little more patient!" would take about a minute to type and post on FB or twitter.  And fans would appreciate the band at least addressing the issue, instead of saying nothing.

That sucks Dreamer but, honestly, I've never understood why companies offer pre-orders weeks/months/years before products are actually released, and I've always wondered who actually falls for that, and why. I mean, unless the company your ordering from is offering some nice exclusive content, are you really that willing to hand over your money for something as soon as possible?

That cracks me up as well.  Kind of like the people who run and order a CD as soon as it goes on sale online and then it never fails: they receive it like a week after the street date, while those of us who are smart simply waited and got it on the release date at Best Buy or from amazon.  But hey, at least they can say they pre-ordered it first. :rollin :rollin

Depends.  Most of the time, I agree that there is not only no incentive to pre-order, but actually a disincentive for the reasons you mention.  But I can think of a couple of exceptions:
1.  Where the pre-order is done through the band's own label or distribution company or website, and if you order from them, the band gets a bigger cut from the album sale than if you buy it from a brick & mortar store or a big online distributor.  Even if the album is only on time or a little bit late, I will sometimes do this because it benefits the band.
2.  Where they offer exclusive packages, such as with the Queensryche preorder packages right now.  And the package is supposed to arrive early.  But even if it is right on time or just a bit late, I'm cool with that and just want the extras.

Yep, those are two exceptions, but I can't count how many times I've seen online fans pissing and moaning about not getting a CD for close to week, that they could have picked up anywhere the second it was released at a local store.  Pre-ordering something that you won't get before the release date is pretty meaningless most of the time, but it's like some fans freak out that it will sell out immediately and they want to make sure they will get their copy bought and paid for.

I get that there's times when preordering makes sense, thanks to incentives or just putting more money into the band's comment if you want to support them more, but why anyone would pre-order Luna Park before a release date was announced while very little is even known about what the package includes is beyond me.

Exactly. I would wait until we have a concrete answer as to what we're getting in the package and when we'll get it.

now the page for EMP is updated and this is what it say: Product sold out and no longer available in the future. for all the kind of releases (Deluxe,BR or DVD)...WTF?Still, no word from eagle Rock page, about the future release...IMHO there is something really wrong with the production, maybe with the distribution in EU and all over the world.

I hope they will send you a refund immediately.

Well, they charge the price  when they send the item just like amazon, so you can cancel the preorder at any time without problems:. Not a big deal for me, I want just to know what's happening :D

Yeah, but just think about it. The first time we got the date was from the Eagle Rock trailer, and only when it leaked prematurely, when they re-released it there was no "May" in the video description. Then we had OTE prematurely estimating stuff, and the Mattivision (sorry if I misspelled) trailer was the only one that definitely mentioned May. Then we had all these distros and the range of dates from May through July and June to November. None of these announcements came from Dream Theater themselves.

The number and type of fans which get all their DT news through what they post on social media and who don't pay much attention to those either would go "what DVD?" or "what delay?" at that announcement. For all the rest of us, there's inties with two members of DT (JP, MM) which basically said that the DVD hasn't vanished into thin air, and that they don't know anything about a release date now but it's full of awesome stuff, different to anything they've done before, that the difference is the reason (or one of the reasons) why it's taking so long and that we just need to be patient. And JR through his Twitter and during his StageIt performance confirming basically the same thing. So that's 3/5 of DT telling us what they can about the DVD.

Even though every day without info delays the DVD further, and even though they're probably fully aware of that fact, imagine if they said something as vague as "yeah we don't know what's going on with our new DVD or at least we can't tell you right now but it is coming out and you'll get it sometime this year I guess" as an official announcement? Even worse, imagine if a day or two after that they got whatever green light they're waiting for and then be like "yeah uhm scratch that". They're just waiting for concrete info to tell us, very likely, and the fact they don't have it now is the source of my frustration (even though a couple of pages ago I posted something similar to the post I'm quoting).

I must admit that I'm an obsessive-compulsive person and I'm becoming obsessed with this freaking awesome DVD. DT live sound is the best ever. I wouldn't have worried with chaos in motion DVD being postponed because it is, in my opinión, the worst live I've ever watched from a well-known band.

OTE on facebook-

"To the Dream Theater fans in reference to the many requests to release some information on when the Live at Luna Park DVD & BluRay will be released: We only produce the content and make it look awesome.. we don't have control over when it gets released, that's completely up to many other people like the band, their management, their label and distribution. All we know is that it's done and it looks and sounds incredible. A lot of work by the band went into mixing the live audio and it is by FAR one of the best live mixes we've ever heard!! Please stop asking us for more info on the release date. We honestly don't know. We will of course release any info that we're allowed to release, because hey... we're just as excited for it to be released as you are!!"

Not a step forward, and that was expected, but still some good infos about what we are going to find on that bloody DVD. I like that the band took the time to personally oversee the mixing and that the outcome was phnomnal.  :)

The technologic advances alone would have proven that this should be thier best live advance at least in terms of video and audio.

Maybe we should flood Eagle Rock Entertainments Facebook-page with questions about the whereabouts of Live at Luna Park? Since it's them who's responsible for the publishing of it.

You know what? You consistently make so much sense, and express yourself so eloquently, that I've decided you're basically a female version of robwebster.

Yeah, but just think about it. The first time we got the date was from the Eagle Rock trailer, and only when it leaked prematurely, when they re-released it there was no "May" in the video description. Then we had OTE prematurely estimating stuff, and the Mattivision (sorry if I misspelled) trailer was the only one that definitely mentioned May. Then we had all these distros and the range of dates from May through July and June to November. None of these announcements came from Dream Theater themselves.

The number and type of fans which get all their DT news through what they post on social media and who don't pay much attention to those either would go "what DVD?" or "what delay?" at that announcement. For all the rest of us, there's inties with two members of DT (JP, MM) which basically said that the DVD hasn't vanished into thin air, and that they don't know anything about a release date now but it's full of awesome stuff, different to anything they've done before, that the difference is the reason (or one of the reasons) why it's taking so long and that we just need to be patient. And JR through his Twitter and during his StageIt performance confirming basically the same thing. So that's 3/5 of DT telling us what they can about the DVD.

Even though every day without info delays the DVD further, and even though they're probably fully aware of that fact, imagine if they said something as vague as "yeah we don't know what's going on with our new DVD or at least we can't tell you right now but it is coming out and you'll get it sometime this year I guess" as an official announcement? Even worse, imagine if a day or two after that they got whatever green light they're waiting for and then be like "yeah uhm scratch that". They're just waiting for concrete info to tell us, very likely, and the fact they don't have it now is the source of my frustration (even though a couple of pages ago I posted something similar to the post I'm quoting).
