I'm so there.  Is this a seated venue or is it general admission?  Looks seated from what I'm seeing online.

That should be an awesome view.  There's really not a bad seat in the place.

Damn They opened at 10. I called at 10 and the center orchestra was all sold out. WTF??? So i got the aisle seat on the right side, close to center. Row P. I always sit near JP's side anyway so those seats will work. The online had to go on sale before 10 to have sold out that fast in the center.

Decided I am most likely not going to this concert.  I got tickets for the NYC show because I will be off of work that Wednesday, but Tuesday I have to work so I don't want to have to take a half day.  ALso I feel its likely they will play the same or mostly the same set so this tour may be better to just go to one show.  If I start seeing they are rotating sets in the first few shows then maybe I will decide to come to this show and get out of work.

I'm in the same boat dont want to see back to back nights of the same set, I live in NJ but work in NYC os my dilemma is do I cut out of work early to get home and see the show in NJ or do I do the NYC show and go in a dress shirt and slacks straight from work

Nothing wrong with going to a concert at the Beacon Theater in a dress shirt and slacks.

The member sale was yesterday so I knew the gold seats were long gone. When pulling seats up, my choices seemed to be Front row of the balcony or dead center right in front of the sound board. I opted for the soundboard. There were seats on either side in the 4 to 10 row range, but I didn't find that acceptable.

I think there were seats being held.


Even better is that this show fits in with my Ticketbastard/Jive Nation-free lifestyle that I'm been enjoying for the last year (Except for Rush. For that I have no choice) I'm seeing Tempest twice next week (and maybe A-Mob, but I doubt it because it would be the third show in a row) and I've got Dream Theater and two Carl Palmer Band shows all in one week in October so far and Ticketbastard/Jive Nation doesn't even get a sniff.  So that's five (or six if I go to A-Mob) shows that cost less than those Rush tickets at MSG in April.

I'll be at this show. Its a bit out of the way (4 hours) but due to scheduling conflicts the closer DC and Philly shows are not an option.

Oh well, haven't been on a road trip in a while anyway, and the show should be awesome so :metal

A then I'm also seeing Devin Townsend the very next day, so :metal :metal

So a quick question to anyone who might know, I got the "Tour Package" from VIP Nation (the $150 deal), which promises "One reserved ticket located within the first 10 rows of the stage". When I purchased, they didn't say anything about a seat/row number, so I guess I'm just going to find out when I get the actual tickets? Or if they aren't sending tickets, when I get to the venue?

I did the similar package for the RCMH show and, if I remember correctly, I got an e-mail about a week or so before the show telling me how to pick everything up (including ticket) at the will-call window at the show.

The meet and greets for the show was sold out, there were a few tickets available last I checked (Friday night)   

Edit  they seem to still have tickets available in the back (ROW DD) i just tried on the site (it was for a single ticket, not sure if they have seats together still available)

Anyone on the forum has the Meet and Greet as well?

Just back from the Jersey show! My 36th DT show since 1996 and my God, they were tight as hell! What an absolute perfect performance.  :hefdaddy :hefdaddy :hefdaddy


I was VERY VERY skeptical on how MP would be replaced in the live setting, but I'll say this....The man behind the skins now (MM) is an absolute phenomenon on drums  :o! I've never been really impressed with drum solo's, but HOLY CRAP, was that incredible!  :hefdaddy



That being said though, I still DID miss MP  :'( (even though they were truly terrific). But, that's my problem! :loser:

Only problem was the sound for DT was SO F'N LOUD :tdwn Got a little better as the show went on though.


On to the Beacon tomorrow night :corn

AWESOME!!!  The boys brought their "A" game tonight!  My wife and I were sitting in the first row after the Golden Circle (or whatever it's called) seats on John's side and they kicked ass!  Mike Mangini is like a concert in and of himself.  That guy has so much friggin' energy!  Playing like a monster and always with a smile on his face.  John P was more animated than I can recall ever seeing him in concert.  And, James sounded amazing!  We actually had to start leaving during "Pull Me Under" (*gasp*) to make sure that we were home by 11 to get our daughter's babysitter home on-time.  But from what I got to hear while we walked out, he was flawless.

Hopefully, for the next US leg of their tour, we can get one of our daughter's grandmothers to watch her so that we don't have to bail before it's over.  This was probably my favorite DT show since Radio City Music Hall.

Amazing show tonight! was there  with mbert. What a great set list! 7 out of the 9 songs on the CD plus caught in a  web and pull me under. I am happy we got outcry and breaking all illusions. James sounded great tonight.
