Going to be an awesome show as always. Hard to believe this only their 3rd time here. Can't wait. Anybody meeting before the show? Think I'll go downtown early, park, check out record shops, get a bite or something.

Are you including opening for IM as one of the 3?

Opening for another band counts as "being here" since they did actually play here.  So, yes, this is only their 3rd time being here.  I just hope we, as fans, can show up and bring it.

Is anyone going to update us on the set list? Would be good to see if the A/B rotation continues.
I punch those numbers into my calculator and they make a happy face.

The show was EPIC. Everyone was just on and KILLED it. LaBrie was AMAZING!!! My ears are ringing...I'm in heaven. It seems like it was the "B" setlist. I stayed away from finding out the sets to keep it a surprise. What a great show!!

Killer show and I can't say how awesome it is to see them having SO MUCH FUN on stage!  We tried to meet with other DTFers but it just wasn't in the cards.  Next time we'll have an actual plan, right?

@Spidey
I could have gone to Seattle but I've been sick lately and didn't feel I could make the drive.  Next time for sure, or you could always come up here.  :)

Seriously, signing the iphone is a cool idea. If I do manage to get this meet and greet package after all I'm going to have him sign my iPad.

OK, PetFish, I thought we were together, well, we were :) I was the one sticking with Mike backstage and giving him a hug (couldn't help it  :blush) AWESOME show! I really can't be happier that this! James was phenomenal as everybody else!
Setlist #2 for the record.
bosk, my husband did some pictures of the opening, it was a cute cartoon with them fighting some ugly powers, taking the plane from the cover and getting on the stage. Sweet begining. Awesome set and show! Can't really say more now, I am dead :)

So who were you?  You got a picture?  It would have been nice to actually meet someone, but I guess we sorta did, and it's funny that we were both there but didn't know it.

Yeah, funny :) :)
Well, there were only 2 girls in the room, a friend of mine who knows Jordan and he was kind enough to give us all passes, so she stayed with him. And me, that was such a fangirl around Mike  :blush So, I was around him most of the time, if you remember the small circle we had :) I have pictures, yes, but there are my friend in there, so I don't feel like posting them here. I'll PM you the link.
Did you manage to meet the rest when they were going out? Seems some of the people we met on the way out were patient enough to meet them, which is great!

So funny.  I should have just said out loud "anyone here on DTF"?  It would have been a lot easier.  Next time we'll hug it out.  I didn't wait outside by the bus, it would feel weird to meet them and then meet them again, like I'm a stalker or something.  But I *still* have yet to meet JM.  He's elusive.

I also always make it a point to spread the wealth and take a different friend who likes DT whenever they're here (I'm buddies with JR and I get 2 guest passes to any DT show I want to attend).  It's the least I can do for my good fortune.  Still waiting for karma to come back to me but at least I have a clear conscience. 

Here's a few more shots:


Me and my friend Andre (his first DT show):



I love JR's face here:



I really like this shot, someone should caption what they're thinking:

Sweet pictures :) :) I hope you got my message, I know you will easily recognize me :)
Great that you are always bringing new friends and expose them to the band!
And yeah, next time we need a better plan, so we can meet. Hopefully that will happen SOON!

P.S. That's very cool from Jordan! We got our tickets during the pre-sale in early Aug and a few days ago my friend told me about the backstage thing. Overwhelming. I am a fan since 92.. go figure :)

Dream Theater were amazing last night. That was easily the best show Iíve seen them play. Although I was disappointed that they didnít play Outcry, the set list was excellent, and much more dynamic than on the last two tours. Fantastic!

Hey Guys, Just got back in town. I live in Prince George, BC, I made the drive down there, best decision of my life, The best set imaginable, it was my 4th time seeing DT and the only song I've seen before last night was Pull Me Under. Mangini was the star of the show for me (that might just be because I'm a drummer) His solo was mind blowing, my jaw was on the ground the whole time he was just insane. The stage was awesome. James was awesome he sounded like studio quality if not better! Wait for Sleep and Far From Heaven was an awesome little break in the intensity of that awesome set. My personal favourite was Build Me Up, Break Me Down. I still have no voice at the moment because I sang at the top of my lungs for every song. Ugh so much to say about it but I don't take up a whole page on this thread. Lets just say I can die a happy man now! Thank you Dream Theater for such an amazing experience!
May The Force Be With You.

Love your review :) Mike was a highlight for me as well. I've been watching his solos for months now, but seeing it only meters away was so much more intense! And the smile while drumming in such a speed... beyond words!
One thing that hit me as well was the contact with the audience, the eye contact, the joy and the smiles on their faces. As well as the contact between them on the stage.
Songwise, Breaking All Illusions killed me! Can't say it was the best as there were many great ones. But this song is something else.
Agree for James' voice, so beautiful. Wait For sleep was a treat live!
I know I am repeting myself and others, but it was amazing :)

Well, I'm 6'8" and I can only imagine what would Dream Theater guys look like standing next to me, especially MM. If I ever get the chance to have a photo with one of them, we'll have to sit down.  :lol

EDIT: And yeah, someone should do the captions for that group photo. I guess I'll be the one to get the ball rolling with an easy one:

I really like this shot, someone should caption what they're thinking:
