I saw them well over a decade ago in Atlanta back with the original lineup.  I still remember how badly my voice was shot from singing along with all the songs at that volume.  They sounded just as good live as on the albums, which I loved.  :metal

Which lineup are you referring to? I ask because officially, the original lineup of DT was with Charlie Dominici in the band, and I know DT didn't do any touring down to Atlanta then. Do you mean the lineup with James LaBrie and Kevin Moore in 1992-93, or could you be referring to the lineup with Derek Sherinian from 1994-98, or the longest lineup with Jordan Rudess and Mike Portnoy from 1999-2010?
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.

Images and Words Tour - June 8th 1993 - Seattle

Awake Tour - Nov 27th 1994 - Seattle (for both of these first two shows, I was front row center, because I was the only person standing in line when the tickets went on sale)

Train of Thought Tour - March 2nd 2004 - Seattle

Octavarium Tour - April 1st 2006 - RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL NEW YORK CITY!!!!   (eternal gratitude to Setlist Scotty for that)

Progressive Nation Tour (supporting Systematic Chaos) - May 5th 2008 - Seattle

Black Clouds and Silver Linings Tour - June 21st 2010 - Portland, OR (road trip to see the headlining set from DT rather than an opening set for Iron Maiden in Seattle)

Once on the Met2 tour in 2000 in Stuttgart
Four times on the 6 Degrees tour in 2002 in Stuttgart, Lichtenfels, Freiburg and Offenbach
Once on the Train Of Thought tour in 2004 in Stuttgart
Once on the Along For The Ride tour in 2014 in Mannheim
Once on The Astonishing Live in 2016 in Frankfurt
Once on IW/B in 2017 in Hamburg

That's 9 times as of now. I know I will attend the tour next year as well. I regret not getting to attend the Dramatic Turn tour. And (the way I see things now) I regret attending all the Portnoy era tours I've attended.

Kulttuuritalo, Helsinki, 2015. Disappointing show, because they only played one song per album and mostly hits. In contrast, Anathema (the opening act) had a very intimate acoustic set. They had lost most of their equipment during the flight and had apparently get the instruments on a pretty short notice. I really enjoyed them, even though I missed the first song and only knew songs from Weather Systems and the cover of Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd.

Like in the Iron Maiden/Alice Cooper show I saw in 2011, the opening act was better.
Long after the others are dead, Myung will be found in a temple on the top of a very very high mountain. One must climb up, arrive nearly dead before being granted a moment of his infinite wisdom.
