Title: 2011-09-27 - Moore Theatre - Seattle, WA
Post by: Cool Chris on August 04, 2011, 11:03:23 AM
Might as well start one for Seattle. Anyone here going? I've never been to Showbox Sodo, even when the space was used for other bars/clubs.

I will be there; bought my tickets today via the presale.

I must say that I'm not the biggest fan of Showbox Sodo. I would have preferred for Dream Theater to play the Showbox at Pike Place Market; it's just a much better venue with better acoustics. I've seen Coheed and Cambria and Nightwish at Showbox Sodo and the acoustics just weren't tremendous.

All that said, I am excited about seeing Dream Theater again (this will be my 7th time seeing them going all the way back to the Images & Words tour in St. Louis back in 1993), and based on the live clips of the European festival show leg, the band is just kicking on all cylinders right now. It should be one hell of a show, inspite of the venue.  :metal

I thought the market Showbox is much smaller though? The only time I've seen DT in Seattle was at the Moore. Totally different type of venue, but I like seeing shows there.

I just saw this on the Showbox's website under DT's 'event details.'   :facepalm:

Quote
Octavarium is not only the eighth studio album from progressive heavy rockers Dream Theater, but it also marks 20 years of existence for this majestic outfit. "It's pretty incredible," says drummer Mike Portnoy, "Especially given the nature of what we do. I think maybe that's probably been the secret to our longevity, is that we've never fit in. But it's still incredible that here we are, 20 years later, and we're not one of those bands that's just sticking around on the downslide. We're still growing and progressing with each album and tour."

I don't even know what to say about that idiotic quote, other than you'd hope that the booking folks would do at least a little bit of homework.

Showbox at the Market is only a little smaller. I've seen a bunch of shows there, including Opeth. The layout is different, but I think both venues hold a little over 1,000 people. Sodo may hold 100-200 more people than the Market. I have yet to see a show at the Moore, and I would have loved for them to play there.

I live in Seattle, so of course, I'll be going. :)

The setlist on wikipedia doesn't include songs from Dramatic Turn of Events - is that just implied, or are they not playing that stuff on this tour? Or maybe they haven't so far, but will on the events AFTER the album comes out...

Thrown off as others are about the venue. Obviously a smaller venue is going to be more intimate, which is obviously cool. But this was the first time I was prepared to shell out the money for really good seats, possibly even the Meet and Greet, but with GA, I wouldn't be guaranteed that seat in the first five rows as I normally would be.

This will be my first DT concert so I'm pretty excited, but I'm very bummed by the venue. The yelp reviews are unanimous in saying that the showbox sodo is horrible: power hungry and abusive bouncers, horrid acoustics, packed tight like sardines.

Given that I have tinnitus and I almost died from being unable to breathe at the last concert I went to, I'll probably be in the back with earplugs.

Btw, I don't go to many concerts, but I was wondering if the setlist is known at the time? I see the thread setlists and dates but can't find anything about seattle setlist or a wiki that replicon is referring to.

I just got an email back from the Moore/Paramout boxoffice.  I asked if the tickets purchased at the Showbox could be exchanged for a reserved seat.  Here is there response:
"Your Showbox ticket will be good for general admission seating on the main floor at the Moore for the Dream Theater show"

bondrkm, do you know if those who purchased sodo tickets get to reserve? Someone on the facebook page said "We will have first come first served access to the floor level seating which will be general admission but seated."

Glad to see the venue changed :)

It looks like The Moore Theater has gotten excellent reviews online for the most part, and from the photos, it seems like a beautiful place to see Dream Theater. I am so excited!!! I'll be coming from Portland so hopefully the rush hour traffic won't be too brutal. So had the previous venue already sold out and that's why it was moved?

Never been to Seattle, have you?  :lol

I've never come from the south in to Seattle on a weeknight, so maybe another local can help out. The Moore is great, I saw DT there in 2004, but I was in the nose bleed section.

I might have an extra ticket if anyone wants one. It was purchased when it was scheduled at the Showbox so assuming this holds true...

It's a pretty good venue, although the last show I saw there was in 2001.

Whoa... and I would have known this without checking this thread how? Thanks you guys!

Seriously. However, I have fond memories of DT at the Moore, (3/2/04, A Change of Seasons encore anyone)? So it'll be cool to see them there again. But what kinda bugs me, is that I was prepared to shell out the cash for the meet and greet this time around, which guarantees you a seat in the first five rows... but of course with a GA show, that would be pointless. So maybe next time around.

And @Dittomist: Traffic coming into Seattle from the south on weekdays isn't great, probably about the same as coming into Portland from the south on I-5 (not just a guess, I know PDX well). If I were you, I would leave Portland by 2:00 at the latest, but I am a pre-funker  :laugh:.

And bosky in Seattle, who knew?

I am hoping for a mix of A and B........I prefer the last half of the B setlist LA got.....that is amazing!! Seems like they are trying to stay away from the long 20+ single song.

I think for Seattle to appreciate DT they need to hear either Octavarium or The Count.....that would show their prog prowness for sure.

This Is The Life instead of the acoustic spot, Lost Not Forgotten to close the set and Learning To Live to close the show.

Does anyone want to meet up before the show? I'll be getting there around 5pm or so. I'll be the biggest guy there most likely, I've a hefty dude. Probably be wearing all black.

As for the set, If I hear Wait for Sleep live I could probably die a happy man. Of course, I also want to hear Breaking all Illusions AND Beneath the surface. Pretty sure we won't get all 3, but I would be happy with any combo of the two.

Yeah, I was there for Queensryche's Live Evolution shows.  I was also hoping I would get to go again for becoming a finalist in the "sing with Queensryche" contest is...when was that again?  2007?  :lol  Oh well.  My Neon Knights demo still knocked it out of the park, as Susan Tate said herself.

Anyhow, does anyone know whether this show is sold out?

Dammit I was hoping not to see any potential setlist spoilers in this thread.

Bosk1, I had an extra GA ticket that I sold online. I had 5 inquiries so I assume those are sold out, but hadn't checked. Might be balcony seats available.

Hoppipolla, Laich21DT and I might be meeting up beforehand, but there is nothing organized.

On a related note: GODAMNIT, THIS IS GOING TO BE AWESOME!!!! Third time seeing them and from what you guys have said from the Cali shows, this should be ballin'! :D

The Moore has good seats anywhere..no need to be there wayyyyy in advance. The Showbox tickets are GA anywhere in the venue I believe. If you bought a ticket after the switch I believe it is only GA in the balcony areas. The seating is all arena theater style seating so the sections are sloped downward, remember it is a 100yr old venue made to view plays, so all the seats are good views of stage.

I definitely want the L.A. setlist more then the SF one.  I'll be happy with either, but there's a song in the L.A. one that I never thought I'd get to hear live. I don't want to ruin it for anyone else so i won't say the name.

I'll be across the street at the bar as well. Wearing all black, really big guy, impossible to miss. Say hello and have a beer with me!

Oh, no, I am SO excited to see them tomorrow! And I know I'll be way more than just pleased with whatever set they choose. I just commented as Beneath the surface is such a beautiful one! We'll still get 2 acoustic songs, which is great :)

DVD with merge of all songs they perform would be AWESOME!

The show was FANTASTIC.   Wish I could have heard BAI, but you can't have everything.

The band was ON FIRE as far as I'm concerned.   One complaint....there were several moments when you could not hear James *AT ALL*....The Great Debate was the worst, but there were other examples....

MANY THANKS to glaurung and lateralus88...I had alot of fun hanging out with you guys.   

The MM drum solo was surprisingly entertaining.   I personally, would NOT have given it up for another song.   But I would have given up Forsaken for almost anything else.

One thing that stood out over everything else....the guys were happier than I've seen them since the Score show.   Everyone was smiling, happy, having fun...everyone was just really having a blast.

It's a great show folks....don't miss it.

That would blow everyone's mind, since there is no way in hell it will happen.
There's a small chance, but I would agree it would probably never happen. James and Jordan did play it not too long ago, so I wouldn't say it's out of the question.
There's no chance, both of them said afterward that it wouldn't show up in a DT set.

I was at the show yesterday, a few feet from JP.

It was an awesome show. It seemed like a lot of people near the front (myself included) stood the entire show, which is the first time I've seen that at a concert.  :metal:

I recorded about an hour and a half of video I think, which I'll upload when I get to work.

Kept away from the setlists ahead of time so was pleasantly surprised and pleased with everything. Not a big fan of TGD, or TW, in fact I didnít recognize it for a minute or so I listen to it so rarely. I know people hate on ES here, but I love that song, and it always seems to get a good response live.

As far as the Setlist A vs B, I would have preferred A going in, so was happy to get that one. Iíve seen PMU twice, could live without WFS, and prefer Outcry to BAI. BTS could be my favorite on the new album but didnít think they would play it live for some reason, so that was great. CiaW kills Forsaken, but otherwise I couldnít be happier with ĎAí

Seconded. Nice to hang out with both of you. That was weird with James' mic/vocal levels. MM is truly a beast. He totally looked happy and comfortable, like he was born for the job.

Oh man what a fantastic night. Trivum put on a pretty solid performance I thought. Got to see a few favourites live (Ignition and Gomen).

As for Dream Theater, oh my lord did they rock. As mentioned, we got set A. And there was such engie, powah the entire way through. Ended up waiting in line for the show for almost 5 hours, and got a pretty good seat. Nate (Glaurung) and I ended up meeting Jammindude, who apparently is close friends with SetlistScotty. Definitely a cool person to hang with before and during the show.

My neck is sore. My throat is dry. And mother fucker was Fatal Tragedy good live.

Post by: Architeuthis on September 28, 2011, 12:17:57 PM
As said in earlier posts, Dream theater was out of this world!!  I was gonna go to this show by myself, a two and a half hour drive. My wife decided to go with me about 10 minutes before I left, which was a treat. I thought the show was sold out, but we found a guy who had extra two tix because his friends backed out. So we had great center seats on balcony. My wife was sooo glad she went with me. She said that was the most fun she had in a long time and she is now a renewed DT fan! She almost broke into tears when they played beneath the surface. How cool!
  The band was flawless and what a fantastic light show! The only problem was the sound guys couldn't get the lows sounding right and was too boomy and drown out James vocals alot of the time. There was a tremendous amount of bassy feedback especially the first two songs. Even throughout the whole show, whenever there was double bass on the drums, it was painfully boomy with no compression or noisegate. Mike Mangini deserves a better sound technician than that, as he played top notch last night.  No complaints about the band, but they need to have a serious talk with the sound man!  Last time I saw DT, the sound was mixed near perfect, so theres no excuse for a band of that caliber to have a bad sound mix. DT has too much dynamics for that!

Post by: Dittomist on September 28, 2011, 12:44:16 PM
I drove back to Portland last night after the show and could only get 3 hours of sleep, so I'm a little disoriented, but here are some of my reactions.
-This was my first time at the Moore Theater and I was really impressed; it's a very cheerful and elegant place.
-Despite an enthusiastic performance and a good ability to work the crowd, I just could not get into Trivium.
-In between sets, I talked to the couple sitting next to me, and we discussed Queensryche, Saigon Kick, Duran Duran, Stryper, Savatage, and Depeche Mode, so that was very awesome, especially considering how I've never had much luck in meeting people who share my musical tastes.
-I enjoyed the animated intro, but I was missing the theme from Psycho!
-I resisted the urges to check out the setlists from the previous shows so I had absolutely no idea what to expect. So I became ecstatic when I heard the opening to Bridges in the Sky. I was really hoping to hear that one last night.
-Mike Mangini definitely won everybody over last night--holy shit, that guy is incredible!!
-My favorite part of the night was probably Beneath the Surface. I think that's one of the most gorgeous and emotional pieces in their career (along with Far from Heaven), and I am hoping it will be a crowd favorite in future years--it would give me chills to hear that with the whole audience singing along.
-I was in the balcony and I wish people up there had been a tad more energetic. I thought for sure once Fatal Tragedy began, everybody would stand up and go crazy, but no, they were stuck to their chairs for most of the night.
-The Great Debate is a spectacular song but I've always found it to be a bit of a mood-killer live. Maybe that's just because the entire Six Degrees album is unbelievably depressing in my opinion (I still love it though of course).
-I'm sure I say this after every time I see them, but I think this is the best James has ever sounded :)
-I was also very happy to hear Outcry, Endless Sacrifice, The Silent Man, and Under a Glass Moon.
-I was positively giddy after the show, walking around downtown on a beautiful autumn night, seeing Dream Theater, Queensryche, and Rush shirts everywhere!

I'll chime in with pretty much the same as most are posting here about the show last night. My family and I got to the venue at about 2:30 and it paid off nicely, 2nd row in the real seats (behind the M&G folding seats) Petrucci side.
It was a prog metal blitzkrieg!!!! I am sooo happy we got Under A Glass Moon rather than Pull Me Under as encore.....sure BAI would have been nice but I am not complaining.
Biggest issue was not being able to hear LaBrie for the songs already mentioned. Myung was a beast.......Mangini was very good...I'm also glad that we gave him a good reception, I think he was very pleased. I have not put my finger on it yet but there was something "missing" in this show and with Portnoy behind the kit normally.......I am perfectly fine with Mangini, there is just something askew.

I have to give serious props to the Seattle crowd on this show.......I think we showed the boyz that Seattle can be a prog rock/prog metal regular stop. You could see how LaBrie and Petrucci were feeding off the mayhem that was going on in the crowd. Many nods of approval by Petrucci......and everytime LaBrie asked for us to sing along, I think we hit a HR each time for him.......Its good that people actually know some of their lyrics.

Great job Seattle.......I have renewed faith for future prog in Seattle!

Great show! First off, it was great to see Cool Chris again, and it was also great to have the pleasure of meeting bondrkm. Not very often I get to have a full on music conversation with folks who share the same type of musical tastes as me, thanks guys!

I got in line as the doors were opening, but was still able to find a nice seat on the floor, center row, about 15 rows back. Unfortunately, because of where I was seated, Jordan was eclipsed from view for a good portion of the set by Myung. I agree with all who have mentioned James was tough to hear at points.

The stage presence from the whole band was refreshing, especially Petrucci. I loved when he was standing on his foot stand, that was funny stuff. I'm 100% with everyone who's said that JP looks much more confident singing back-up vox, and seems to be really embracing his role as the leader in the band. There were too many times to mention when he came to the front of the stage to pump up the crowd in some way.

But it wasn't just Petrucci. Myung was grooving all night, James was energetic and seemed very comfortable, Jordan was Jordan, and Mangini has an infectious personality that seemingly eminates from behind his kit.

Trivium weren't too bad. I can't see myself ever purchasing one of their CD's, but they weren't unenjoyable. I noticed that the lead singer would occaisonally go and sing on he bassist's or guitarist's mic, I have never seen that before, is that common?

It's a shame to hear that the balcony wasn't too lively. On the floor, I'd say 90% of us were standing for the entire set, including myself. However, it seemed that those around me didn't know the new album all that well. For example, during the intro music of Outcry, I was going apeshit  :lol but I seemed to be the only one around who knew what song was coming. I was also a bit dissapointed with the overall reception of Outcry. I thought they did a killer job on the song, and people seemed generally underwhelmed.

I think I've typed long enough, so I'll just finish by saying that James' mic stand kicks ass.

I think one of the absolute coolest moments of the whole show for me was seeing both John's playing shoulder to shoulder during the instrumental of Endless Sacrifice. I couldn't help but smile the entire time.

Also, Mike Mangini has such a contagious laugh/smile. I am loving this guy.

Sorry, man.  But they can't please everybody.  Maybe they'll do a DVD at the end of the tour and you'll get to see it that way.

They should schedule 1 Evening With show and record it for DVD (3-hour set  :metal)

Oh man, i don't even have words that sum up how awesome last night was, but here it goes. Third time seeing them and it was THE CHARM!! Much better than Prog Nation 2008, and IM/DT tours combined. Due to showing up at 3 in the afternoon, we had first row right in front of Myung! Great venue, great acoustics. TSM/BTS was one of most intense parts of the set. Very much reminded me of Resist/Heart Full of Soul from R30, but better IMO. Mangini is the perfect replacement for Portnoy, this guy is practically perfect in every way (and incredibly short in real life).  When they welcomed him, we cheered for what seemed like forever, and he had the most grateful look on his face and literally lit up. When James tried to interrupt and go on with the set, we just kept cheering for Mangini. Also, UAGM was the perfect encore! You guys who have yet to see this tour are in for a real treat! :D

This.

Announcing that a single show would be an evening with and that it would be filmed for a DVD would sell out, regardless of size. Hell, I would go anywhere in North America to see that.

First, thanks to the guys for posting the setlist as I text them. Sorry there was no real surprises to everyone who was checking the thread during the show.  ::)

Second, your videos look awesome Lloyd! I can't wait to watch them all at work tomorrow. I wish I had known they weren't doing patdowns or bag checks, I would have snuck in my HD Canon handicam. I own $6000 in video equipment and film bands in my spare time. I just don't bother trying to sneak anything in anymore because most places check bags and give the standard patdown upon entry.

This was my second DT show, my first being last year's one-off show in Portland where they didn't have their lighting or video equipment. What a difference those two things makes! I got to the venue 2 1/2 hours before doors and the line was already snaked around the building and half a block long! I hadn't been in line for more then 3 minutes before Jordan came out of the backdoor of the building. I didn't really know what to say other then "amazing album" ...I was starstruck which was a first for me. He's my favorite member of DT and seeing him after only being there for 3-4 minutes really caught me off guard. I did get an awesome picture with him though.

I just couldn't get into Trivium. Glad to see they had a lot of support from people going to the show specifically to see them though. I thought initially it was an awkward pairing (DT & Trivium) but I guess it isn't so strange. Surprised to see some people actually LEAVE after Trivium. Blew my mind.  :justjen

DT were absolutely on point and hitting on all cylinders. I think I was the only one who knew the words to most of the ADTOE songs but the crowd was definitely digging the newer stuff just as much as the older jams. Bridges is a really good opener. I was BLOWN AWAY during Endless Sacrifice. That is one of my favorite songs and to hear them play it live was really something. And to play it flawlessly too!Mike Mangini is a beast!!!! One hell of a drum solo by that man. Not that he had to, but he has definitely proved to be worthy of being MP's successor  :metal . I thought that the acoustic spot was really well done. I would have much preferred Wait for Sleep over The Silent Man, but I'm not complaining! But we did get Beneath the Surface which was perhaps my favorite song on the night. I'm a sucker for DT's softer stuff I suppose. Debate was excellent but like others said, James' vocals were very quiet at times. He was having some feedback issues if he went too close to the edge of the stage it sounded like. Outcry was my favorite song of the night because it is my favorite song on ADTOE. Under a Glass Moon was actually a pretty cool encore. I thought it might be strange initially but I really dug it live.

All in all, this was bar far the best concert I've ever seen. I can't wait to see them again. I'm very glad to see the band getting some well deserved publicity and recognition for how amazing ADTOE is.

Oh yeah, my vids:

Hmm, I recorded the acoustic set as well. I didn't upload it today because I thought the audio quality was terrible when I looked at it after the show last night. I guess I must've been half deaf after the concert or something, because I watched it again today and it sounds great.  :facepalm:

I guess I'll upload it tomorrow.

Man, I can't believe it's over, and I'll have to wait until the next time they tour to see them live again.

Post by: ImagesAndWords on September 29, 2011, 10:16:59 AM
Hey guys,
It's my first time here on the forum, but I've been a Dream Theater fan since 2001 and seen them live once on every European tour since 2004.
I'm from Norway, so the past 4 times I saw them live in Oslo. Last year, I moved to the US though, and so this time I saw them for the first time on American soil, in Seattle on the 27th.

Anyway - the concert rocked! (of course). Here are my thoughts:

- I got a seat slightly off-center on the third row up on the 1st balcony. The theatre and its vaulted ceiling was beautiful, but it felt like a weird setting for a metal/rock concert, lol.
- I didn't care for Trivium but hey, I don't have to. I cannot believe some guys actually left after they were done. I'm like "hellooo....the greatest band on earth will be on soon, and you are leaving??" Lol...
- It felt REALLY strange to SIT at a rock concert, something I have never done before. Back in Norway, you always stand the whole entire show, and although your legs can get tired as hell - it just makes the audience more dynamic, and you can "rock out" more in the pit! Here, I felt like I was sitting at some opera and should be politely clapping like a gentleman, lol. So I felt the audience was a bit more on the reserved side than what I am used to. Back home, everybody goes wild, all fists pumping in the air and stuff. Granted, yes there was fist-pumping and the occasional stand-up here too, but not quite the same.
- The sound was also a bit disappointing, but this could have been because I had a balcony seat. At my previous DT concerts in Oslo, the sound was simply excellent. Like a cd just louder. Here at the Moore Theater, I thought it was too "grumbly" and distorted. James also had some mike/sound issues.
- Anyway, enough on that...the guys in the band were in AWESOME shape and like others have said, in a very good mood it seemed! :)
- James and John P. in particular made good contact with the audience at all times, smiled, and seemed playful
- Mike seems happy as can be and he really is the perfect replacement for Portnoy. Man, the guy can play!!
- It was strange that there was no pat-downs or security. Wish I would have known that I could have brought my SLR camera...
- The setlist was awesome.
- The performance was awesome.
- Dream Theater never fail to deliver.
- I love Dream Theater. :)

Thanks to Lloyd2112DT for the videos! dude... can you please upload those unplugged songs as well? :) Thanks!!

Welcome I&W! Glad you had a great show. I know what you mean about American audiences these days. It wasn't this way 20 years ago. People have progressively gotten lazier to the point they won't even stand at rock shows. There's something very wrong with that. That's why I like shows in dives like the Roseland Theater in Portland where there are no seats on the main floor. At any rate, I still stand, in the balcony or not, and will never stop standing at rock shows.  ;)

I hope you all know that the venue the show was originally going to be at was all standing room only. Apparently The Moore just holds more people or something.
