He answered my question: "Any Official Bootlegs on the horizon?"
He said yes, probably 2018...He mentioned Images and Astonishing shows...

That's great news! I remember a recent interview with him (https://digi.heavymag.com.au/contents-digi-mag-26/dream-theater/) where he confirmed they record pretty much every show they do, so that made me think of something like this.

Did he talk about his next solo album and/or the direction the next DT album is going to have?

Yes

-Solo album sometime in 2018.
-He mentioned that the band has an idea of the new album's direction but he didn't want to discuss it further.

I did see Eric Gillette, Alex Argento, Marco Sfogli and Jordan Rudess join the chat (but not participate).

He also said the band decided no official live DVD recording of the Images and Words 25th Anniversary tour...So I am assuming, based on his official bootleg reply, that only audio would be released of this Anniv. Tour (assuming the bootlegs get released).

Thanks for the summary! Now I don't have to sit through the whole thing  ;D

I just want them to finish this tour and focus on the next album already  :'(

It really blows that the music industry has reached a point where artists can't even film a show for a live release. Sad times.

Yes, it's a huge bummer. Especially for a band like Dream Theater, whose live releases have historically done really well. That said, if we get audio recordings of The Astonishing and I&W that have at least some professional touching up, I'm sure I'll enjoy them.

I'll admit that I'm thrilled to be getting a live version of TA in some form. I hope it's mastered well. The really killer with that tour was not only didn't we get a live recording, but the cellphone ban has really limited what we can go back and see and relive. I personally love live recordings (video footage) of concerts. They're great in my hobby room. I get to have music on while I'm working on my RC truck fleet or painting stuff, and when a cool solo or something happens I get to look up and see it done.

It really sucks. With LAB's multi-angle Instrumedley as a bonus, I thought the future of live concert recordings would have been entire performances/concerts in multi-angle thanks to the adoption of high capacity bluray, and now we don't get anything at all.

For Astonishing I think they should do a DVD / CD combo with the DVD showing the contents from the background screens if no other video is available.

I wish DT could film with lower budgest or making crowdfunding and release a DVD from every tour like official bootlegs. IMO I guess what is really missing is a change of business mentallity from DT and to get a little closer to the core fans.

Its highly likely they'll do The Astonishing. The ban may work for their benefit here.

I'm just happy we'll be getting more official bootlegs.

The situation could be better, but this is nice. Plus, with an Astonishing bootleg coming, I'll probably finally buy those last couple of official bootlegs I've been holding off on getting for so long along with it. :)

Anyway, good Q&A overall. Good fun, very interesting.

What do you mean by this?  Plenty of other artists, much smaller than DT are releasing live videos (Delain, Circus Maximus both soon, Devin Townsend has many and more to come).

But that's cool to know they have some audio recordings from the TA shows to use.  It really sucks though because that tour had some awesome visuals to go along with it that may never see the light of day again.

Also, I didn't watch but blabbermouth had an article saying JLB solo band is going to be playing ProgPower 2018 and is going to try and do some more shows around that time frame.  That'll be awesome, I'd love to see his solo band live.

He did one prior to that DT.net announcement. It should be somewhere in his FB, the one he previously did.
