2012-06-22 - The Fillmore - Detroit, MI
« on: April 20, 2012, 09:33:55 PM »
Thought I should set up a thread for this date, especially since I am now going. I was going to go to the Cincinnati show, but I was able to get way better seats here! Got me and my friend going. Anyone else going? We are going to get there a couple hours ahead of door opening to get the best place in the pit. Hope we get to meet some DTFers while we wait or are hanging in the venue.

We are meeting up at Hockeytown Cafe at 4PM. It is right by the venue location. I will be wearing an Opeth - Still Life T-shirt and there will be two others in my group so we shouldn't be too hard to find. See you there!  :metal

Bringing another friend who is open to prog and is more of a casual Dream Theater fan but definitely still likes them. 3 hour roadtrip!!  :metal

I hope we can get a decent amount of people for a meetup. Also hope to check a little bit of the area and go to a good restaurant for lunch.
Also will be getting in line early so we can get in the pit!

I thought the Fillmore show was reserved seating. Is there a GA section?

Also, best place to go for lunch would be Hockeytown cafe. That place is the shit, and is most likely where I will be going before the show.

Well, the show is supposed to be reserved seating, but I looked up reviews about the venue and pretty much everyone has been saying that they clear out the first two sections of the chairs. I have also looked up pics as well. First come, first serve for that area apparently, but only if you have a ticket for that floor. People with balcony seats can't go down there.

I'll definitely check out the place on the net.

Well, that's very interesting. I'll certainly be there as early as necessary for that.

I guess it kind of depends on when I can get up there. I assume I'll be up there around 4-5.

That works for me. I was hoping that my group wouldn't have to leave early because we are going to be watching all the DVDs from "By A Thread" the night before so it will be quite the marathon and will need some sleep afterwards!

I don't know what the fuck I'm going to do about By a Thread. I'm seeing Dream Theater in Cleveland the night it's projected to arrive. Probably won't be able to watch until Saturday or Sunday, depending on when I have to work.

Oh that's cool. I work on Reynolds Rd. just north of Heatherdown's. Pretty not so sweet gig.  Just moved to Ann Arbor, will be looking for a job around here somewhere.

Should we set up a more concrete time for the meetup since it is a week away. I also would like to get in line before the doors open to see if we can get in the area that will be make into General Admission(Pit).

I'd be okay with that. The Killing Hand would be one hell of an odd choice though. I'd much prefer Take the Time.

I considered going to Detroit just to see DT on my birthday but I'm too broke for the travel expenses.
I wouldn't want somebody with 18 kids to mow my damn lawn, based on a longstanding bias I have against crazy fucks.

Very well then!  So lunch at Hockeytown around 4ish/5ish?

Also my name is Brad in case some of you haven't been around since the old forum days.  I'll wear a DT shirt if that will make things easier.

Not sure if I'll make it to Hockeytown. If there's any chance of there being a few GA rows, I'd rather be chilling at the venue at 5 to try to get front row.

Have they changed the venue since last year?  It used to be the majority of the main floor area was standing room.

On Ticketmaster, they have the first two sections as seated, as well as the rest of the theater, but from what I've heard, and I guess from what you just said as well, is that they make it GA.

Yeah, this will be my fourth time seeing them at the Fillmore and the main floor has always been general admission.

How early do you think we should get in line to get a good spot? My group will definitely need to eat before this though!

Depends how close you want to be.  At the last show in Royal Oak (also general admission) I was in line around 6 I think when doors were at 730.  I ended up being about 4-6 "rows" back, but my friend who showed up well after doors opened met me down there in the same spot without any problem (no pushing people out of the way to get the spot or anything, he just walked up).  So basically, for me to get the spot I did, I wasted a lot of time in line.  :lol  I still recommend getting there pretty early however.  Also make sure you pee beforehand, it can be difficult to fight for your spot back once you give it up.

And I would definitely be down for some chow before hand.

I showed up to the Royal Oak show at 3, and they ended up letting the ticketmaster "Print your own tickets" people in first. I was pissed. But, I ended up getting into the first row anyway because of a really cool guy I met in line who saved me a spot.

I didn't know Hockeytown Cafe was right by the venue! We should be fine eating there. We will be able to see what the line is like before we even get into the restaurant and can periodically check out the progress of the line. I think 5 should be good or maybe earlier if either of you are worried about waiting in line.
