I will be going of course. Love the Fillmore.

Does anybody know why https://thefillmoredetroit.com/ hasn't announced the show yet? For some reason tickets aren't for sale on the site yet.

I have been wondering the same thing. Trying to get tickets, but nothing is up. Same with Chicago Theater.


Hopefully seeing them in Detroit, Chicago, and Milwaukee. That'll be the best weekend of my life

I got tickets during the presale. I didn't even know it was a presale. But alas, a lot of tickets have already been sold.

Hey guys, I messaged the Fillmore on Facebook regarding the tickets and here is the response:

"The show will be officially announced at the first of the year and then tickets will become available shortly after that. There is a fan club presale that is going on right now and you can get tickets from there if you are apart of the fan club."

That pretty much clears everything up!

What's the fan club presale?  As far as I'm, there isn't an official Dream Theater fan club in the US.  I couldn't find tickets for this show either; thanks for the good news.  Hope I can still get my hands on a VIP ticket.

Does anyone have any information regarding this show?  I still can't order the tickets on the DT site, and The Fillmore doesn't have DT on their site at all.

So looking at the map layout, our tickets are across the aisle from one another.

These were bought during the presale, and Crowd Surge had a completely different layout than fillmore's page.

How do I go about selling them if they are will call pick up?

I am gonna try to make this one.  Last year I had three people lined up to go with me and they all bailed at different times.

We'll see if I can wrangle together some misfits this time around.

Seems there is only seats...

I'm glad there's no GA. I don't get why anyone would like GA?!?

As for me, seats not next to the wife are unacceptable, bought two new tickets. 2nd row! Pumped, especially after last night's set.

Assigned seating is completely terrible, but I can deal with it for DT. Gotta get my party together and get our tickets soon.

Sitting is boring as hell. No energy.

Going to end up with shit seats in the back now because I didn't sang tickets during presale...

I was there for the last show and while I appreciate to be able to sit down for a minute or 2 I wish they would have no seating in the lower parts. Regardless, I am looking forward to it!

I'm going to be at this show for sure. Don't have tickets yet, and there aren't any good ones left, but meh. Maybe something good will pop up the day of like last time.

Well, my dad was gonna go to this with me but bailed.  I went to the last two concerts by myself and don't wish to do it again.

Safe to say I won't be there this time.  Have fun, guys.

It's tomorrow!

One last day of work for the week for me and I'm done!

Going to Southfield G/C tomorrow for the clinic/demonstration, coming back to Ann Arbor to pick up my wife, and then going to Detroit for the big rock show!!!

I've been counting down the days since December!

Still no tickets. Only shit that's available is balcony GA, which seems awfully weird.

Probably going to hold out until tomorrow and then just get whatever's available.

So pumped!!! I work in Detroit, and my office is literally like a couple blocks away from the Fillmore. Get off at 4, so I'll be hanging out down there all evening. Will be my 4th DT show. Can't even describe my excitement.

Whew, managed to get 3 seats in the mezzanine a few minutes ago. It was getting scary there for a while. Anyone feel like meeting up at Hockeytown before the show again? I'll be there with my Dad and girlfriend around 3:30-4 probably, so I'm sure we'll be fairly easy to spot.

Glad you got tickets, but why didn't you just get them a few months ago?

Lack of money, mostly. Also I missed out on the pre-sale and don't feel like paying for floor seats that are in the back of the venue.

Can't wait for the show!  Took the day off so I don't have to rush (driving in from Grand Rapids).  I think I have decent seats, we'll see.  I thought my Transatlantic seats were going to be good but they ended up sucking (oversight on my part I'm sure).

Got to meet JP at G/C.

Got a picture with him, but I don't know how to post it.

I told him he wrote the soundtrack to my life.

I hauled ass to get to Guitar Center by 1:00 (I teach in Flint until noon).  I showed up just in time to not be able to see the stage, just the backs of everyone's head.

Luckily, I used to work at that store.  The manager pulled me around the way Petrucci came, and I essentially got a VIP spot about 5 ft behind and off to the side of the stage.  This is why you don't burn bridges when you quit your job.  :metal

Of course I stuck around and got his autograph.  The guy right in front of me asked "what do you wish fans would ask you more about?".  So I said, whatever the answer was, that's what I was going to ask.  Cool dude.  Killer arms.

Just got back. Phenomenal. Absolutely phenomenal. I've been to a ton of shows at the Fillmore, and every single time the sound blows me away. So clear and rich. JP's solos just cut right through and leave you in awe. Everything about this show was excellent. What did everyone else think?

Yep, phenomenal as always. I managed to complete the circle by meeting Jordan after the show (and JP and JM and JLB but I've met them before). Was going to wait a few more minutes to see Mangini again, but I had already been waiting for 2 hours and it was fucking cold as fuck.

The added keyboard solo in The Mirror was a really nice touch, and the additions to Space Dye Vest were very cool as well. Seriously epic shit.
