As anticipated, Soundrink is now offering VIP upgrades (no ticket) for several shows.  Maybe they've been available for days, but I just got mine yesterday.

^ Honestly, part of the poor ticket sales might be how and where you can get tickets, it's kinda confusing what has been sold and what hasn't.

I went on the Palace Theater website, and it looked like most of the floor was sold and about half the second level, which is pretty good this far out. Little did I know there were more tickets available through Elko. Much better tickets.  :lol

Literally just noticed this. 

While listening to Dream Theater on Pandora, it had a link to buy tickets for the Nov. 8th show @ Greensburg. (slightly creepy, but kinda cool, too.) 

Figured i'd check to see what had sold since i bought tickets, and noticed there's a hell of a lot more tickets available in the orchestra (way close, too) than what's available from the venue itself. :o :o   Weird...

Now i'm torn between buying new tickets and re-selling the ones i got, or just sticking with what i bought....  :huh: :huh:

Yup, I ended up getting exactly what I wanted through Elko's site. I'm orchestra (floor), dead center, row M, which in my experience at that venue is a great spot for sound.

In and out, $60. Not bad at all for dead center 13 rows back.

Just looked on the venue's website and that whole section looks to be sold out...  :lol

I would first secure better seats before selling the tickets. I think you have ample time to sell them at least face value.

I'm very curious if DT will add a show for Friday, October 27th.   They are in Los Angeles 10/26 and Phoenix 10/28.  In the past they've added shows in Los Angeles when ticket sales were strong.  The Wiltern is virtually sold out, save a few rows in the back balcony, BUT the Wiltern is not available for booking on Friday, Oct. 27!

Being only the 3rd night of the tour, I can't imagine the band needs the night off so soon, and it seems a waste of a Friday night in a valuable market.

I wonder if they are contemplating adding a show for Anaheim (the Grove) or Pomona (Fox Theater)?  Both venues appear to be available Friday, Oct 26.  Riverside, however, is not.

Too bad seeing them come up and playing like The Ventura Theater is not an option.

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

Exactly.  Weeks ago when i checked the venue's website almost all of the orchestra was sold out.  Just assumed Images & Words tour had more draw than The Astonishing...

Little did i know all those seats were available on another website.

The current tour's last date is Dec 2nd in Dallas. What do you think the chances are of them adding a couple of more dates before the holidays for the Southeast like Georgia and Florida like they did for The Astonishing?

VERY disappointed that DT is not playing Minneapolis this time. :( Why?

They've played a show the twin cities during practically every tour in the past.  What kills me is they are playing Peoria, IL the night after they play in Chicago.  Why are they playing a city that's practically a stone's throw from Chicago?

Hi All,  I just joined this forum and am a long time DT fan.   I've bought tickets to the Nov 14th show in Albany , NY  from Sound Rink as part of the pre-sale.  This is the first time I've used Sound Rink. They say that they will mail the tickets to me about 2 weeks before the show.

Has anyone used Sound Rink?  Can I count on getting the tickets from Sound Rink?  Has anyone had issues with Sound Rink?

By the way, Sound Rink still has tickets for sale for Albany and I'm pretty sure that those tickets for sale at Sound Rink are not for sale by Ticketmaster.  So, if you want tickets to the Albany show, I suggest you check both Sound Rink and Ticketmaster.  I find that this way to sell tickets -- two separate ticket sellers  - is confusing since it makes it harder to know what tickets are available unless you know about the existence of all of the ticket sellers.

I've kept track of James and how he sings on certain tours and concerts for a while now, and I have to say he sounded amazing in Seoul.  His energy seemed high, too.  I think James really likes the South Korean crowds  :biggrin:  They surely are very enthusiastic about music.

I'm so happy and excited for him that he is sounding so good.  Makes me so stoked for the show in Austin on December 1st.  Going there with 7 friends, and I'm thinking it's going to be absolutely incredible.

Already shared this video I found on Youtube on how Mangini now plays Hell's Kitchen in the DT Manila thread but I would also like to share it here. I think the Genie is now slowly putting to rest the criticisms on his hi-hat and cymbals playing in the piece early in the tour.

JP played the Wonder Woman theme at the start. I didn't expect that! I really love the way Hans Zimmer composed it, and it is/sounds very proggy because it's in 7/8  :tup

Just booked a hotel room in Peoria for the Nov. 4th show. Anyone else going to that show? I'm taking my 10 and 11 year old sons so I figured I'd make a day of it Saturday then actually sleep and come home Sunday. If it were just me and my brother I'd just drive the three hours home after the show but being I'll have the kiddos with me I won't risk anything. Plus, they like getting breakfast at hotels...they think it's fun for some reason.  :lol

I shit you not, whenever I travel and have to choose a hotel, I call multiple in the area and make my decision based on which has the best breakfast. The people at the desk must think I'm crazy "Hi, random question, do you have waffle makers in your breakfast area and does your milk come in cartons or in a dispenser?". If I'm spending money to spend the night somewhere, it means the night before is going to be a doozy. I need my breakfast the following day to be on point.

 :lol I spend way too much time at Holiday Inn Express hotels which includes free breakfast, but I pretty much can't take it anymore.  I can tell you most don't have waffle makers, but they almost always have pancake makers and the milk has always been in cartons from my experience.  They also have delicious cinnamon buns.  However, I don't think I'd recommend their breakfast to anyone other than the fact if they are comparing similar hotels, it's at least free.  Now if you pay for a breakfast at a Holiday Inn (not express) then you are in for a solid meal.

I chose my last hotel based on proximity to a good, non-hotel breakfast. In fact, I chose the town I stayed in for that reason, and the hotel simply followed based on quality/price ratio. The only time I actually eat breakfast is when I'm on the road, so I like to make a point to do it well.

When I have taken breakfast at a hotel, American chains, at least, the free breakfasts are usually bad-decent, and the expensive breakfasts always have waffle makers and a guy making omelettes to order.

I also find that hotels tend to stop serving breakfast before I want to wake up, for the most part.

Hotel food is always just so expensive and not as good as something down the street.  Like some hotels charge $15+ for some eggs, no thanks.  I'd take McDonalds breakfast over that.

All this breakfast talk reminds me of being in Portland overnight with some friends a few years ago. Late night involving many beers, and then we get up the next morning and we're all in various states of waking up/getting ready. One guy leaves and then shows back up with this big plate of food from the "free" breakfast buffet downstairs in the lobby. So I head down, grab a plate and load up and sit down at one of the tables down there only to have someone from the hotel come by and drop a bill on the table. Turns out it wasn't free at all :lol Best damn buffet eggs I've ever had though.

I would like to make something clear in regards to my hotel breakfast decisions... I will never pay a hotel for breakfast (order something and receive a bill). To get my business there has to be a breakfast buffet that's already incorporated into the cost of my room.

I actually ate my hotel breakfast this weekend.  This is the first time I think I've seen where the breads were individually wrapped with plastic.  Like they clearly didn't seem fresh because of that, and then actually eating a bagel confirmed that.

Sound Rink just sent seat assignments for the show at the Wiltern so check your emails. Also, is anyone going to the Wiltern show who has two tickets with seats in the A row? If anyone does and want to swap my DDD row seats, send me a PM. The DDD seat is closer to the stage but this area is lower than the actual stage, so if your short you might have to look up the entire show. I'm a short asian guy so I wanted to see if anyone wanted to swap.

Earlilano, if you have seats 113, 114, or 115 in Row DDD the view should be fairly unobstructed as its situated behind the aisle for rows AAA - CCC, so no one standing in front of you. 

FYI, I did have the Row A seats for this show, with all the info forms filled out but windows crashed before I pressed complete purchase.  A few minutes later I ended up with Row CCC.  Row A is a premium seat at the Wiltern, as I think I had it for the first Astonishing leg.
