Oh yeah! Getting the VIP package. Such a monumental time in their history, gotta take advantage. Already pre-ordered the Deluxe Collector's Edition of ADToE, so I'm shelling out roughly $450 for DT this time around. Should all be worth it.

Also, the acoustics in Massey should play really well with the band. Much more of an intimate venue than the Molson Amphitheatre.

Wow! Thats awesome! Yes, Massey should be incredible for sound. Molson was okay.. Just a tad too big. Hope to see you there!  :metal :tup

Just got confirmation from a friend with connections at Massey Hall that my tickets are secured. Third time in 3 years seeing DT and I haven't seen Mangini play since 95 with Extreme. So pumped up right now and relieved I got a seat. Wish they had a second show and I hope they come around next summer to Molson Amphitheatre. The wait is going to be excruciating but worth it for sure.  :tup

Just got my ticket from pre-sale (Massey Hall website, promo code "electric") ... 10th row, pretty much dead centre.  Gonna be a long two months.

So, I'm chasing these doves down the street and she's screaming at the top of her lungs, and then when the magician comes back from Europe, two of them turned brown!  Well I followed the instructions!

The meet-and-greets go on sale at 5pm today! Here's to blowing a shitload of money on DT. The Deluxe Collectors Edition of ADToE and this. All worth it.

I've seen many shows at Massey Hall. Dream Theater has been two of those shows.

MH is 100% guaranteed the best venue for any live performance. The acoustics are bar-none, and there's not one bad seat in the house. (Even the obstructed view seats are alright!)

I'm very excited for this show. I'm 9th row, Right Floor, Center.

Clearly you've never been in the third balcony.  I'm 6'2", and literally there is not enough room for my knees to sit straight.  Saw the TSO Beethoven's Last Night tour there a little over a year ago, and man, uncomfortable would be as politely as I could put it.  Built in the 1890's, I guess there weren't too many 6' people back then.

Otherwise, you're right, it's a fantastic venue.  Although I thought they'd be doing a bigger venue.  MH is only 2800 or so I think.  I know they're not gonna sell out the ACC or anything, but their past summer shows at the Amphitheatre filled the seats... and that's about 7000.
You must be right in front of me, I'm RCF, row J, seat 34.

I had the same thought, but Molson will be closed in October will it not? And other than that there arent too many bigger options that make sense.  :-\

3rd time for me with Dream Theater at Massey Hall. Thrilled to see them returning to such a beautiful venue. I was hoping for better seats, but I guess I shouldn't be complaining because it's already a great one. LCF G 15. (Furthest seat on the left centre.)

Wish I knew about the pre-sale password though.  :(

Honestly, I've seen Dream Theater many times now and have NEVER been right in front of JM. And I'm a bass player? So tickets on the left are welcomed.  :hat

It's become a pretty regular thing at this point. Flew in for the Massey Hall shows on the ToT and Octavarium tours. I've seen DT 3 times outside of that as well in NYC and Montreal. I accepted at a young age that they were never coming near my home.  :(
