Anyone going to either of these two shows? I just impulse bought a ticket for the show on the 7th not too long ago so there WILL be a Debra present at at least ONE show on the NA leg.

Holla!!! :xbones

Gold Ticket for 6th and Platinum for 7th.  I've been checking ticket sales to see how the newly added Friday show has been selling, and Live Nation hasn't had any available last two days.  I doubt the second show sold out in 1 day, as it took a week for the Saturday show.  I bet more ticket bundles will be made available soon (for anyone still searching for a ticket).

Re the thread title - umm... :huh:

They play Mesa AZ on the 5th, and the LA shows are on the 6th and 7th according to dt.net.

Thanks, bluehaze - it was a total rash decision and impulse buy but it was on my screen so I figured 'What the hell.' :lol

So um... any idea who'd changed the title of my thread? Anyone? Bueller? :justjen

I have tickets to,  err,  I think the show on the 7th.
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 should be flying in some time on Friday I think. I need to procure plane tickets and secure a cool place to stay. I think I'm only going to be there for the weekend/show, so I'm TOTALLY down for a meet. :xbones

A month out.

Any ideas for a meetup spot? Who all wants to chill?


I really don't know what's near the venue. I've only been to the Wiltern once... like a few days after my dad died...so I wasn't really paying much attention.

I just joined the forum. I'm going to be there for the May 7 show and my friend is giving me his pair of meet and greet tickets so I'm so stoked to meet Dream Theater in person. I still need to look for someone to go with though. lol. I'm down to meet with other dream theater lovers before the show.

Just found an email in my spam from last week that offered a new DIAMOND PACKAGE upgrade for platinum ticket holders that includes a Q&A with Maddi and a walk through on the stage.  Dang, sold out!  I wish I fished it that out of spam sooner, as I would have surely ponied up for it.

Yeah, I got that email as well but I realized that since there were only 10 slots available that it was a good bet the diamond packages were already sold out. Regardless, I'm still happy with the platinum package I'd purchased.

I'm still down for a quick meet up before the meet and greet on the 7th.

If anyone is interested in a meet and greet ticket or a vip gold ticket I posted on DT-Bay thread (page 1 has my gold vip ticket and page 2 has my meet and greet ticket info). Also on a side note if I don't sell them I will either give them to a random person at the venue or to someone on thses forums or on the dream theater reddit. So if anyone is interested but don't have the cash and you are willing to be on stand by on the day of the concert if my tickets don't sell let me know. I just don't want these tickets to go to waste.

I just bought tickets to see the May 7th show. I saw them in Cincinnati last week, but since I'm visiting my brother in Fresno this weekend through next week, we decided to make the trip for the show since he hasn't seen the show yet. It should be a great time!  :tup

Nothing yet.  I did get some info about picking up the merch for the gold ticket.  Just curous, did you sell your ticket?  I couldn't find the DT Bay thread for the life of me.

Im on mobile and editing quotes is so hard. Lo . I have sold the meet and greet ticket but the gold vip ticket is still available, and seet is right in the middle, 2nd row, floor 2 so it should be a great seat. Do you mind sharing the vip gold merchandise pickup info? I don't know why i have not gotten that email. Thanks.

For the Gold, I just got an email so everyone else probably did.  It says to bring Photo ID between 7:14 and 7:45 to representative at the Robot in the lobby.  VIP merchandise (whatever that is) will be distributed there.  That's all I know.

Yes, it would. But my brother works Monday and not Sunday, so that's why we chose to go to the Saturday show in LA with a long drive either way after the show.

To be clear, my ticket says 7pm. Is that for doors or the actual show?

I only ask because at the Cincinnati show, the ticket said 7:30pm, but that was show time.

Doors open at 7pm, so I assume the show starts at 8pm.  The Gold ticket merch is distributed after 7pm, so I can't believe they would do that during the actual show.

hey earlino, glad you sold the M&G.  what day is your ticket Friday or Saturday?

FYI - for anyone else who has purchased a Platinum VIP package, we are to check in no later than 4:45pm.

As I suspected, this might make any meet difficult, but not impossible if there are viable places near or within walking distance to the venue.

I have the Platinum for Saturday and the email I received says check in time is way earlier than that. The ticket says 7:00 p.m. so I assume the show will start at 8:00. The good thing is that there's a show Friday night, so perhaps somebody will post their experience afterwards, so the Saturday show people will get it right ;-)

if the show starts at 8:00, there's about two hours of waiting between the end of the meet and greet and the show.
