Is that inside the Grand Sierra?

What? At 7 I did. You were eating. Then we met before the show.....I am confused. No matter.. That was the best concert day ever. The meet up beforehand was so.much.fun. There were 4 "Daves", 3 women and 3 sons and 12 people. 3 of the guys had seen DT like 7 times this leg!! None were from Reno.   :-\. I was able to get my banner from the preshow signed and the drum head of course. One of the guys at the preshow hadnt been to but a couple of concerts and made a comment about how cool the banner was. I found him after the VIP and gave him the banner and drum head. That was a highlight for me.
The after show was fun, kind of awkward, but fun! James is the best!! John Myung was quite chatty but I really had to lean in to hear him. Next time I will stay longer to wait for MM.

The show was of course great! Nothing beats Scenes. I wonder if James was under the weather, usually he comes to the sides of the stage quite a bit but didn't really at all...The show seemed less loud than I expected. This is good for the ears I know...but some times you just want to blast it. :metal.  I can't wait until the next one!...I hope they come back to Reno. It was a little soft in attendance..even so, it will probably be 3 more years before they do and we/me/they are going to be really getting up there in years! I am a little sad thinking this could be the high point of my DT concert experience and its behind me. Lol! 

I am so happy we were able to meet! Hopefully we will have more time at the next concert!  :)

I posted that before I got your text, just in case you happened to see the post before the show.  It was good to meet you and to hang out and chat a little bit.  Wanted to talk more afterward, but you were very busy with your duties.  Seems like you did a great job and everybody was happy.  Nicely done!  :tup

Oh, and I don't think Mangini came out.  We were talking a lot with Myung and LaBrie (and his daughter, Chloe), and then Maddie, for awhile toward the end, and then you were gone.  I left when there were still a few people, but pretty sure he wasn't coming out by that point.  I think he was meeting some other people, actually.
