4/29/19 Dallas, TX - The Bomb Factory
« on: March 27, 2019, 07:50:48 PM »
Hi!

Anyone planning to go to this show? Long time DT fan here, but Iíve never seen them live before and this will be my first show. Decided to do it right with a front row ticket (just slightly left of center) and Platinum VIP. If there are any fan meet-ups before the show, would love to hang out if the opportunity came up.

I also keep hearing (from multiple sources) that they play at deafening volumes, the likes of which human ears are not designed to withstand, lol. Let me know if Iíd be advised to bring some earplugs just in case.  ;D

Dude you maybe sitting a few seats away from me, I'm also front and left of center (JR's side of stage)

I wouldn't want somebody with 18 kids to mow my damn lawn, based on a longstanding bias I have against crazy fucks.

Itís getting close :) Iím in next level excitement stage that tends to hit 1 week out from a great show. Will have to concentrate harder to get anything productive done in my day to day world until then, lol.

Hey guys!  I'm seat 31 and I've also got seat 30 that I need to sell.  I'm not looking to make money, just sell.  I paid $170 so if you know someone that may want to buy it let me know.  Thanks!

Front row? Those are just a few seats from me. Iíd snag them in a heartbeat if I hadnít already purchased. Good luck! :)

Cool I'll look you guys up when I get there.  The guy I bought the ticket for is flaking out on me...  I'm sure I can unload it somewhere.

Oh, I misread at first ó you are still going, but just have an extra ticket. Thatís a pretty good deal for front row. Hopefully youíll move it quickly :)

First DT show and meet and greet. The M&G went amazingly quickly, lol! I was 4th in line, and the time to get pictures and signatures was 20 minutes. But it was fun! I had a small gift for JP and he seemed to dig it. :)

LOL! Man, what a great show, and it was awesome meeting you and DTinTX. Had a total blast and the band really knocked it out of the park tonight. Canít believe they can sustain so many dates in a row and still sound this good. Wasnít this the 3rd night in a row?

I was front row center for this concert. Freaking awesome.  FYI I was the freaking giant in front of James Labrie.  Loved the show.  Best part for me was John Petrucci tossing me a pick and telling me he loved my shirt.  . Gotta love the fact that this band is looking at their fans.

BTW not the first time Petrucci noticed me at a concert. about 4 years ago, I had worn My Detroit Redwings jersey to the show.  This was deep into the Baseball season and Texas was doing.  He said, " Man I thought it was baseball season."

So my advice is if you want to be noticed by a DT and dont have DD's.  Its best to stand out.  well more that being the tallest guy there.

Great to meet you last night! What a blast! I got lucky and got a JP pick too. I was impressed by how well behaved the front row folks were, and that area was extremely well controlled against people who tried to sneak up there. I believe I only saw one dude try and they made him return to his seat instantly. We were right at the stage, and when JLB would step right to the edge, weíd back up to give him some room, lol. Either that or be staring straight up his nostrils, lol. Killer show, and one hell of a good time.
