Trivium just ended. Million times better than expected. Never heard them before this.  Everyone in the trivium thread in the dt section was wrong

No one posting the setlist?

They must be better live than on CD, because their albums suck with a capital S. No offense to anyone who likes them but they just seem to me to be the definition of a "poor man's Metallica."

Eren said he wrote the cello part for Eugene, so that means they aren't actually playing vacant. Which would have been neat. Cool nonetheless  :tup

Well, there's at least one song in the current rotation that has cello in it, so he actually makes sense as a guest.  (although I'm a bit disappointed that it's not Gary, because I had talked myself into believing it was him)

The special guest was indeed Eugene Friesen playing an (electric!) cello on Beneath the Surface. It was an amazing show, I give props to the guys from Trivium for not getting upset at the lack of headbanging, the main guy (Matt Heafy) even talked about how he was just there to have fun and pump everybody up for DT, which earned him accolades in my book.

Great set, it was Set List A (Silent Man/Beneath the Surface) but Great Debate was dropped for BAI, although the order shifted around...sorry I'm not more clear, it was an amazing show and I'm still in the after-glow.

Yeah sorry I forgot to post the set.  Surprisingly enough it was the same as the last show (Oct 8):

These Walls
Build Me Up, Break Me Down
Endless Sacrifice
Drum Solo
The Ytse Jam
The Silent Man
Beneath the Surface
Outcry

Very cool lil extra you all got.

Hmmm... since they played the same set twice in a row...  wonder if that means DC is going to get the piano set instead of the acoustic set.

I just got back from it, awesome show. Trivium was great, I thought it was really cool how matt heafy was really chill saying "you guy enjoy the show however you want, sitting down tapping your foot, or jumping around going crazy, up to you. just have a good fucking time". DT was great as always, I couldn't believe what I was seeing when I saw Mangini's drum solo, the guy is a god damn monster.

I think that's been there deal so far because that's what they said in Toronto also. I thought this was really cool though. I was rocking out like all hell to DT, but where I'm less familiar with Trivium I just took it in and enjoyed their set. (They probably made a fan out of me next time I give In Waves a spin). But before they started one tune, he said something along the lines of "We're just here to have a good time and we hop you guys are having a good time. We're here to pump you guys up for Dream Theater so on this next one, do whatever it is that you do. Whether thats head banging, snapping, clapping, tapping your toe. Let's have a good time!"

*starts a really heavy riff*

Really dug their on stage presence and their approach to pumping people up. Really cool guys, Trivum seem. :hat

Further back in the balcony, DT's volume was only slightly excessive.  I needed the earplugs to make out anything clearly by Trivium, however.  For those talking about how great Trivium was, I disagree vehemently, however.  This is the first time I can recall seeing an opener whose music I even own and enjoy (The Crusade), and emerging as even less of a fan than I was going in.  I'm not a fan of the screamy/growly vocals, and this is the first time I've seen a band in which two people were screaming at the same time.  While I admit that the novelty of harmonized dual growls was interesting for the first few seconds, there was just so much of it! Every time they switched to clean vox, complete with nice harmonies, I wondered why they kept doing that stuff instead.  Not my thing.
This was my 8th DT show, and first with Mangini.  Holy crap! I never thought I'd say this a year ago when Portnoy split, but this was the best DT gig I've ever seen! Mangini is not human.  The waves of positive emotion heading his way from the audience are an almost surreal experience, and I was almost in tears at one point, especially when I realized why we were all feeling that way.  A year ago, I thought my favorite band was over.  Last night, they were not just back, they were tighter than ever, and having a blast, and the focal point around which that renewed spirit revolved was that little guy from Boston.  Thanks for making this possible, Mr. Mangini!

Maybe the volume was different where I was. I was 3rd row from the stage directly in front of petrucci. Volume/sound was perfect.

I said the exactly same thing to the friend and a fellow long time DT fan that I was at the show with.
But on the other hand for me the love Mike M is receiving is not only because of what he is doing with DT, it is because of his own personality and professionalism. This makes him such a perfect fit and such a loved member of the band.
Wonderful posting that made me smile. Thank you!

Agree 100%.  That was DT show # 25 for me, and easily Top 3. (Radio City will always be #1)  Portnoy is probably my biggest drum influence, and I initially thought they were done when he announced he was leaving.  Once I heard MM play on ANTR on the doc, I knew they found the guy.  He just fits in so well it's incredible.  I like that they are playing to a click, makes everything even tighter, light cues and perfectly synced.  Just an amazing show.

But Dream Theater was way, way, way, way too fucking loud.

Agreed. I was in the balcony as well and DT was definitely too loud. I believe it was just a function of being in the balcony though...sound is generally pretty good on the floor at the Orpheum. Keyboard mix was off for couple of songs, but seems like they fixed it.

Mangini though....Jesus, what a drummer. And even better guy. He saved this band, folks....I hope you all realize that.

They were in a pretty tight spot when Portnoy quit.  I don't know if you were at the concert last night or have seen any of the gigs since Mangini joined, but I think I agree that Mangini "saved" Dream Theater in that both is technical abilities as a drummer and his personality were an excellent fit, and you could really, really feel the love flowing to him from the audience last night.  I can't speak for anyone else, but that's what I get from the "saved" comment.
