I've been able to add a few new cities that I've seen DT in to my list with this current tour.

I'm now up to:

Cleveland (2006, 2012)
Columbus (2008, 2010, 2012)
Cincinnati (2016)
Chicago (2011)
Los Angeles (2016)

BobS is most definitely up there. Who was that other guy who saw them an unbelievable amount of times? Was it Franz or something like that?
Not sure how many times Franz has seen them, but I'm sure it's plenty. I think you're probably referring to a German guy by the name of Matthias who had seen them like 50 times by December of 1998 (MP mentioned this on the bootleg of one of the shows). However, I remember asking MP about Matthias several years ago, and he was under the impression (altho not confirmed) that Matthias may no longer be with us.

*snip the awesomeness*

That's the guy I was trying to think of. I knew MP mentioned it during one of the boots. It might have been the Rotterdam show or the one in Brussels. I forget.

Got my tickets for April 19th at the Orpheum. That would make it 4 times - The Nokia in LA, twice at the Grove of Anaheim, and then now at the Orpheum in LA. So stoked!
Now I can add last night's show at the Wiltern to my list. #5

Trying to go when I can now even though it's a decent drive as I'm realizing they won't be around forever.

I've seen DT like 5-6 times before Portnoy quit. Probably all in Chicago too. I remember going to the first show of a two night stint, thinking it wasn't worth going the 2nd night, only for them to perform MOP for (maybe) the first time. I was so pissed.

Bummer that you didn't catch the second night. You must not have been following DT much online then at the time, since it was pretty much assumed they'd do MoP for the second night in Chicago after having already done it in Spain a month earlier. I actually flew out for those 2 shows as well as the Milwaukee show that followed. So glad I did. I have some great memories from those gigs, including getting to sit in on an interview with JL before the Milwaukee gig.
As a basic rule, if you hate it, you must solely blame Portnoy. If it's good, then you must downplay MP's contribution to the band as not being important anyway, or claim he's just lying. It's the DTF way.

I guess I wasn't following the setlists as much, or maybe I just missed it. I also remember when they played The Pageant in St. Louis (which is where I lived) but I couldn't go because I had a night class, so I went to Chicago a day or so later, and then that Pageant show is the infamous one where I guy leaped off a balcony to catch Portnoy's head and thus they never returned to St. Louis again.

My awesome fortune.

I was at the STL pageant show with the guy falling out of the balcony, as well as the Chicago MOP show.

Oddly enough, Adami, we had the exact problem reversed with the Chicago shows; we only went to the 2nd show and were pissed when they spend the entire 2nd set on cover; it was not known when tickets went on sale what "special show" meant (that was before the Spain show when they first did it).  In fact, I've been to 7 DT shows and have never seen a DT crowd as dead for that long of a duration as it was when they played all of MoP.  A lot of unhappy fans during that set.  We definitely regretted not going to the first night (although it wasn't feasible since five of us drove up from STL and not everyone can take off work that easily), since that set list was far better and pretty beastly. Oh well, shit happens.  :biggrin:

In fact, I've been to 7 DT shows and have never seen a DT crowd as dead for that long of a duration as it was when they played all of MoP. 

Have you seen them this year?

Yea, at the time I was pissed, but after hearing the MoP recording they released....I didn't mind not going.

However, I can't remember which show, but it was in Chicago, I went to see them and my favorite DT song is A Change of Seasons, which I have never seen live. So during the middle/end of the show I started feeling really sick, like close to passing out sick, so I had to leave. Went online the next morning? They played A Change of Seasons.

Thanks Obama.

I've seen them in

Düsseldorf

How many times? I lost count frankly. Been seeing them every time they came around since Awake, with the exception of the current TA leg.

Unfortunately I discovered the band very late, so I missed a lot of epic concerts  :sad:
I first discovered them in 2011 and 2012 I saw them the first time :)

2012: Copenhagen, Berlin, Manchester, London. Boston, Huntington*2, Atlantic City
2014: Porto, Manchester, London, Wolverhampton, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Gelsenkirchen
2015: Bonn
2016: Hannover, Copenhagen, Bochum

Highlights so far were the second night in Huntington where they played To Live Forever and Paradigm Shift. Their tour opening in Porto 2014 was also special for me. To hear songs like The Shattered Fortress and Trial of Tears :metal :metal and to see them play Illumination Theory for the first time live was a goosebump moment :)

For 2017 I have tickets for Malmö and Düsseldorf. Hopefully there will also come a Copenhagen date and I cross fingers that this time I finally will be hearing Octavarium  :hefdaddy :hefdaddy
