Discuss.

It's a brilliant venue, although likely to be all seated.

Well, then.  For those asking if they are going to play other UK shows other than the Sonisphere Festival in Knebworth, there you go.

Is this going to be an evening with show?

Better question is will it be the same set lol

I REALLY hope they change it for the second legs. Make another tight show with a different set for the second legs.

Just bought tickets - going to see DT three times in a year! Yay! And best of all - Front Stalls, Row B, £40, didn't even have to pay the ridiculous VIP surcharge!

Hopefully they'll announce a date for the Friday (Wolves? Leeds?*) and I'll get to see them 4 times in a year!!

SQUEEEEEE! I'm feeling like a 13 year old going to see One Direction!


*I do recall a gig announced at Doncaster a few years back that was moved to Leeds - chances of that happening again?

Excellent news, the City Hall is a great venue despite it being all seated, plus I live in Sheffield so it's super easy for me to go. Phoned the venue this morning and they said tickets go on sale tomorrow at 9am, so I'll be getting mine then.

Already on sale at crowdsurge via the DT site. It's the only way to guarantee front stall tickets.

I'd say if they announced another UK date it'd be further south. They've played Southampton Guildhall before on a summer leg, for example.

I'd say if they announced another UK date it'd be further south. They've played Southampton Guildhall before on a summer leg, for example.

Seeing as they're playing down south (Knebworth), I think it would be more likely that they'd do a northern date, like Scotland or Newcastle.  Also I'm hoping they are playing Sheff due to me emailing the promoters asking them to put them on here, I told them it's a better venue than Leeds 02 :biggrin:

Just got the Gold VIP, it'll be my 2nd show DT show after the Manchester one in Feb. I hope there's a setlist change but wouldn't mind the same.

Quick noobish question, At what point do we get given the VIP stuff? I read somewhere that it's at the venue? but is that when they check tickets or when?

You'll get an email with details - they'll invite you to the venue early (about 5.00ish)

I have tickets!

This will be the first time I've seen Dream Theater twice in one year. I saw them twice on the BCSL tour, but fourteen months apart. And these are the best seats I've ever had. Expensive way to start the week. But, worth it! Even if they play the same set again, it'll be worth it. If there's a few curveballs, all the better.

Received my ticket today and noticed it says "Dream Theater plus Special Guests".

Look like we won't be getting an "Evening With " show.................

My tickets say that too. I was under the impression this tour would be an evening with. Bit disappointed.

In all fairness my Manchester ticket said this too and that was evening with!

But it is the day before a festival they're playing at so I'd understand if it wasn't...

The venue/ticket provider probably don't have any idea what the format is. I'd bank on it being An Evening With.

Yeah, I'm sure I've received "special guest" tickets for bands without openers, before. Should be fine!

If this turns out to be the first show of tour, depending if they announce another date, I'll do my best to post the setlist while I'm there. Really excited for this gig.

Should be a great gig! First time seeing DT in my home city!!  :metal and 2nd gig of the year
Row AA too, could've kissed the woman at the city hall box office
Hoping we get some more tracks from DT 12, would be sweet but just happy they are playing Sheffield, been way too long ..
Anyone up for drinks before hand??

Just realised earlier that Haken will be doing north England tour later this year...

If it wasn't an evening with that would be awesome!   :metal

I'm going!

I missed them in Manc in Feb. I figured I've already seen them like a dozen times over the years and I'll catch them on the next tour.

Then of course everybody here starts yapping about how this is the best evar!!! Then they announce the Sheffield show. Darn!!! I'm seeing Extreme on the Friday in Manc. Dt on Saturydat in Sheffield. Cannot afford :-(. Then  my gf goes and buys tickets for us!!! :-D

So  we're seeing Extreme on the Friday and DT on Saturday! What a weekend! I can't wait!!

....three questions;

1) When you have your photo taken with the band is it with your own camera or is it professionally taken and they email you the picture.

2) Is the special gift normally a tshirt?  - can you choose your size before hand?

3) Have DT played at the Sheffield City Hall before. (I am from near London and I have only been to their London gigs before - 14 so far!).


Got my tickets and decided to go for the meet and greet experience as well which I am totally excited about. I prefer it when you can buy these separately. The whole weekend is going to be life changing as I will be staying in Sheffield on Sunday to watch to tour de france which I have been a dedicated fan of for many years!!!

I'm not aware they've played Sheffield City Hall before - if they have it was a long time ago! The special gift isn't a T-shirt, sorry. Without spoiling it, it isn't that special at all, so don't get too excited. Don't know about the camera, I'm afraid, never been to a M&G.

The last time they played Sheffield was at The Octagon in 2000! It's been too long.
