Holy Shit!!!  They're playing 10 minutes from my house!!!  The place only holds 1,300 people.  It's a shame that they're playing such a small place.  But, it's an awesome place for a show.  I'm so frickin' psyched!

The Community Theatre sent an e-mail yesterday announcing a Jackson Browne concert going on-sale soon.  I just deleted it 'cause I couldn't have cared less.  This morning, a good friend of mine forwarded me the same e-mail but added a line of text before the forward telling me to read on.  2 weeks before my birthday.  What a present!!!

Looking at that date I'm gonna assume that they're starting on the east coast and working their way west  :metal

I wouldn't be to sure about that.  If the tour is indeed starting in September and going through October, they will probably be starting on the west coast.

By the way, you can probably count on a New York City date.  Most likely a day before/day after the Morristown, NJ show....

Anyone know anything about this venue? Ive never heard of it.  I live in New Brunswick, maybe 40 minutes from Morristown so i plan on going to this show (and a NYC show if they do one).

When I was growing up, it used to be an old movie theater.  It was closed down for several years, renovated and re-opened with a focus on live music/ comedy/ dance.  They've done a great job of getting really good (and diverse) acts there for a while now.  Ted Nugent was there last night.  Queensryche and Alice Cooper are some of the other upcoming shows.

I saw Bela Fleck and the Flecktones there about 7-8 years ago.  I've also taken my daughter there for a children's concert.  It only fits about 1,300 people.  Think of it like a mini-Beacon Theatre.

If it has the Beacon's acoustics i'll be very happy

I've been PM'ing with a taper on a different website who just recorded a show at this venue.  He's unfamiliar with Dream Theater.  But, he'd be willing to tape the show in exchange for a purchased ticket to the show.

Since I've only seen one real concert there almost 10 years ago, I can't really comment on the acoustics.  It was more a comparison of the venue's feel.

well good, i was hoping they would consider starland ballroom in sayreville, but this is the next best thing and it's seated too, i just confirmed w a friend.

im just wondering why they are playing such a smaller venue

From my experiences at NJ venues, they really dont draw a large crowd (Unless its PNC/Tweeter outdoor amphitheaters)

Paramount theter 8VM 1600 seats

Convention Hall Prog nation 3600 but way less than half full

well thats true and makes sense ive seen them a lot over the years at PNC and it generally doesnt fill up and seems empty, obviously last year when they opened up for iron maiden it was packed but that was because of iron maiden.  i hope they play the theater again at MSG in nyc. great place, i saw them there in 03 04 for their ToT tour

There are a few options for NYC locations - Theater at MSG (capacity - 5,600), Terminal 5 (capacity - 3,000), Beacon Theatre (capacity - 2,900) or Best Buy Theater (capacity - 2,100).  The Theater at MSG and the Best Buy Theater are wide open.  Terminal 5 has open dates on 10/09 and 10/10 before the Morristown show.  And, the Beacon has an open date on 10/10.

I wonder which they'll choose.

I thought Terminal 5 was a cool place to see a concert, but not the best venue overall.  I saw Bling Guardian last fell at Best Buy theater and was very impressed.  I thought the sound was solid and they had the music playing through speakers in the bathroom which meant I didnt miss anything while peeing all the beer I drank.  I would say Beacon Theater would be the best though, I was very impressed when they played there for ProgNation.

well great, I live in piscataway like 20 minutes away so ill definitely be there1 also, does anyone know if this is general admission or seating?

Piscataway is only 20 minutes away? Im in New Brunswick so I guess I am closer than I thought. Sweet.  Id love to go to the NJ show than the NYC show.  Hopefully it just works into my off days so I dont need to use vacation days (I work until midnight).

It's definitely a little more than 20 minutes.  It's exit 36(ish) off Rt. 287.  Isn't Piscataway exit 9?  That's at least 25 minutes of 287.  You gotta figure in probably another 15 minutes for getting on and off the highway.  Even at that, 40 minutes of mostly highway is pretty good.

ha well yes im right on river road but yes i was being generous at 20 minutes, generally with no traffic and fast driving you can get there in under 45 minutes on 287 north

Taking 287 was what I was thinking to get to Morristown, but since Ive only lived in New Brunswick for a year, I thought when you said 20 minutes that maybe there was a quicker route coming from this direction.

Depending on what time the concert and how early you want to get there will probably determine if there is traffic.  287 between Piscataway and Morristown can get pretty busy during the evening rush hour.  Otherwise, I doubt there would be much traffic.

They do their own ticketing through their website.  Going there on Tuesday to see The Gipsy Kings and on Wednesday to see Queensryche.
