That's a pretty sick setlist!  :metal
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Hard to believe time flies that fast, but I know the feeling rumby. Back on June 29, 2013 I experienced the same thing (being 20 years since my first DT show). What's great about that show is that it happened to be broadcast on the radio that night and so is a widely available bootleg in great quality. Hope you get to relive your first show again like I have!   :)
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.

That's awesome man!  Congratulations!  As others have said, I hope you get to re-live it!

I had my 10-year anniversary last year... almost 10-years to the day and in the same city no less!  1st show was 3-29-04 @ 9:30 Club in DC; last show was 4-1-14 at the Lincoln Theater in DC.  I prefer the Lincoln Theater personally.

Also, Fates Warning opening for that show. Didn't care much for them though IIRC. The opener I remember from the same venue was Spock's Beard; I had never heard of them, and my jaw dropped to the floor when they started playing.

Today actually marks 19 years since my very first concert (which was Ozzy).  I'm celebrating the anniversary by seeing Blue Man Group. 

August 11th will be 15 years since my first DT concert.

Yesterday marks the 24th anniversary of seeing Slayer and Testament at the Orpheum in Boston. It's DT related because for the ADTOE show, we had the same EXACT seats.
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related
Winger Theater Forums........or WTF.  ;D
TAC got a higher score than me in the electronic round? Honestly, can I just drop out now? :lol

Yeah, but it was an encore. I am just used to shows ending with a bang, before an encore.

I completely understand what you're saying, but as TAC mentioned, that's how MP wrote those setlists. And if you consider TSM to just be part of AMBI (being an "epic"), then it makes more sense.

As it stands tho, there have been other times that the main show has ended on a quieter note - I know there's been a number of times that MP used TSCO to close a show (or at least the first set), so it has happened at other times, but it is unusual.

Little Green Bag was a track from Reservoir Dogs, followed by some guy (probably from a movie) mumbling something to himself before Jim Morrison (of the Doors) screams "WAKE UP!"
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.

Time flies
My first show was Feb 12 1993

My first show was supposed to be 11/13/1992, but I believe it was a 21+ yo (alcohol) show.  My older friends went to the show and delighted in telling me what I missed (even though they were only casual fans).

Since we're on the topic of first DT shows...

Mine was June 9, 1995 at Birch Hill Night Club which some of the older fans and hardcore fans will know as the Mercy Fuck show where Dream Theater played the new version of ACOS for the first time.

Of course. They're a prog band.  How could one not expect something completely unorthodox?

Oh, gosh. Amen to that!

You're a lucky man to have been at that show.

As a side note, I'd have loved to have seen DT with Derek in the band.

The time sure does fly.

My first show was 11/14/89 when they opened for Marillion.

That's a bit frightening, actually.
