Dream Theater or Mike Portnoy shows...
« on: July 27, 2017, 07:37:01 AM »
I'm curious to know which you have seen more of, DT shows or MP project shows?

I have seen DT 10 times with and without MP

I have seen MP solo 9 times (Transatlantic, Adrenaline Mob, Neal Morse, Winery Dogs, Who and Beatles tributes, Metal Allegiance)

I will amend if I forgot any show from either side.

seen DT 20 times (15 with MP)
seen Neal Morse Band once
seen John Petrucci w/ MP once

...that's it. But seeing Morsefest 2017 (two shows) and The Shattered Fortress this September, and DT again in November. So by the end of the year it will be 15 for DT w/ MP, 6 for DT w/o MP, 5 for MP w/o DT.

DT.  The only MP project I've seen live is LTE.

I've seen DT 5 times, but only once with MP and I've never seen any of his other projects.

Haven't really listened to most of them aside from Transatlantic - would love to see them live one day though.

Don't know why I thought some may have seen more MP shows. By year end MP will have the lead 12 to 11
Going to see Neal Morse Band, and Shattered Fortress, and 1 DT show in November.

I've seen DT 10 times (7 with MP and 3 with MM) since 2005

I've seen MP outside of DT 6 times if I'm not mistaken: once with Petrucci at the G3 tour, once with Neal Morse, twice with Transatlantic and twice with the Neal Morse band.

100% DT, 0% MP so far.

Not out of spite, just never had the chance or the driving desire so far.

I saw more times DT because I haven't seen any of MP shows ;) DT comes to Poland almost every time during tour, I saw Them 9 times including 2 shows with MM. MP was here last time I think with Winery Dogs... that was the night when Piotr Grudziński from Riverside passed away... :'(

Dream Theater 5 times.

Then MP:

Shattered Fortress 2x
The Neal Morse Band 1x
Transatlantic 1x
Flying Colors 1x

---

I could have seen NMB, TA and FC all at least once more, but didn't go to the concerts for whatever reason. So yeah, I'm pretty much even on both sides. (Not voting, since there's no option for neither)

I've seen DT (6) times.....(5) with Portnoy (1) with Mangini

I've seen the Neal Morse band once.

I utterly LOVE watching MP play....he's really incredible actually. This last time I watched him with the NMB performing The Similitude of a Dream was probably my favorite concert experience ever. Fantastic musician and showman.

He just needs to take a big honkin' bite of humble pie and hold his ego under some bath water until it stops squirming...and maybe re-read his tweets/FB posts 6 or 7 times before he hits 'post'.

I've seen DT 24 times (22x w/MP, 2x w/MM), #25 coming in November

I've seen 4 MP projects:
 - HAIL!
 - Adrenaline Mob
 - Yellow Matter Custard
 - The Winery Dogs

I'm seriously considering MP's Shattered Fortress.

Keep in mind where you live. You've got the option to see either one every tour they do, often more than once. Most of us don't. I've only seen MP 4 times here in Dallas. DT's been through here countless times. What I can say is that I've traveled to see MP much more than I have DT, and that won't change.

Dream Theater. I've seen them 8 times (5 times with Portnoy, 3 with Mangini).

Only see Portnoy outside of DT once, this year when I saw the Neal Morse Band.

I've seen 54 DT shows (7 with MM). I've caught 20 MP-related shows (3 LTE, 3 TA, 5 G3, 1 NM, CatSM, 1 AJ, 1 YMC, 1 AM, 2 PSMS, 1 FC and 1 TWD).
As a basic rule, if you hate it, you must solely blame Portnoy. If it's good, then you must downplay MP's contribution to the band as not being important anyway, or claim he's just lying. It's the DTF way.

I put my count in for MP side projects.

Truthfully it was a tie, seen DT 4 times, seen MP side projects 4 times (although there was a Morsefest in there and I'm counting the two nights as two times).  But I enjoyed the Neal Morse/TA quite a bit more so I'll let that factor be the tie-breaker.  TA on the Kaleidoscope tour was possibly the most enjoyable concert I have ever been to (granted I don't go to a lot of concerts...)

DT for the eleventh time in Baltimore this November, six with MP, five with MM.

Zero for MP solo:  I would have loved to have driven up to NYC for the SF show, but logistics (in a good way) make it impossible.  I really don't like all of his 12 Steps (other than 'Root of All Evil'), would be pumped for the intro and SFAM tracks, but would have so enjoyed the show from what I've seen on ytube.
