Dream Theater was absolutely unreal. The best concert l’ve ever attended & the greatest group of musicians of our era! l loved that they opened with their new song “Untethered Angel.” 100% would recommend going VIP and experiencing the beauty of their talent. The concert lived up to every expectation minus getting hit in the face with a pick from the third row, center and reaching down for the memorabilia only to have someone in the fourth row jump over and steal it from me. Nevertheless, my bf and I have checked it off the bucket list; yet, its only a matter of time until we add it back to the list when they announce another show date in TN ✅😊

20 years ago I had the chance to see secnes from a memory and even the one they did for the DVD! I didn't go. When I heard they were doing it again, I had to go. The show was incredible! Both sets were just the best. This is one of those experiences you carry with you through your life and I'm glad to have had it.

As usual, DT did not disappoint. Would like to have seen a little different song selection for the first set, and more than one encore song (Pull Me Under). Loved the second set of Scenes From A Memory played in its entirety. James did struggle a bit to hit the high notes on a few tunes. Other than that, the show was amazing and I loved every minute of it. Also, I am convinced Mangini is part octopus because what he did at the end of Finally Free is not humaly possible. 🤘🏻

The most incredible Dream theater show ever. The first time I saw them was the Scenes from a memory at the Roseland ballroom in NYC. I haven’t missed a tour since. And it bought me back twenty years ago. They were tight, and the sound was perfect. It was an all out attack of musicianship that was perfection. I hope they do a second leg back in our area, because I will go again! 👍👍👍

What better way to experience your first Dream Theater concert than with Metropolis pt.2. Honestly though, I was zoning in on John for most of the night. As a fellow guitarist, I have always wanted to see the man who was on the instructional videos when I was kid shred in real life, and boy did he do that. Finally Free was killer and of course, so was Home. This is definitely going to be a concert I remember for years to come. Also, for anyone who is one the fence about seeing them, it’s worth it!

I have seen DT over a dozen times at various venues and have splurged for the VIP meet & greet experience 2 times and they have never disappointed me.........until the second show (Thursday)on the Distance over Time tour which landed them at The Wiltern, Los Angeles. Now I know this was only the second show but these guys are extremely polished perfectionist and to hear John Petrucci noticeably miss and or hit the wrong notes at least 4 times was like a parent watching there kid on stage , trip in a grade school play performance. Other then that Petrucci was flawless and his many guitar changes played emotionally beautifully. Jordan also played amazing but lacked the wizardly playfulness he usually displays, he seemed almost too focused on What he was doing and not enough on Where he was doing it at! There were also some technical issues with the mobile keyboard and his then his main keys so maybe he was focused on trying to hold it together like a runaway truck and trailer, which may have thrown him off? I was excited to hear Mike Mangini play Scenes from a Memory as I really love his playing style and feel he really keeps Dream Theater who the are and not where they were going! His playing this show was a bit slow or maybe pausastically (I made it up, it means to excessively Pause almost unnoticeably but noticeable enough if you are noticing ) There was a part he got lost once by “skipping a beat” but quickly found his way back. I did find my self questioning why he wants his symbols at a height that he is doing shoulder presses the whole show? Looks cool though! John Myung is awkward and underrated!....There I said it! He is the Muhammad Ali of bass players, his fingers are whimsical and without those lower notes and upper fills the music would have no power! He played great! Now for the “Big Guy”, the Main Man! The voice of Dream Theater James LaBrie! I watched his interview of when he lost his voice and it devastated him and how it changed his ability to sing as before (age doesn’t help neither) but, an I am truly sorry to say, his voice is the weakest link to this show! I am not going to run all over James because I genuinely love his singing but.... yeah! I also feel (be it where I sat) his microphone was also having Technical issues and I wouldn’t be able to hear the soft and lower parts but when he belted out those parts of the songs upper register it was as if they forgot the mic was at volume 10 and just flipped the switch on!.... Wholly Loud! I Love me some Dream Theater and I can Definitely look past all of my critics,.... watch.....see I already forgot about it! Now what was I talking about.... Oh Yeah, I am going to attribute all of my “Golden Ear” critic on the AWEFUL SOUNDING VENUE CALLED “THE WILTERN” I am a veteran to the theater, although it is historic and beautiful it has to be one of the top worst sounding venues I have “ “scene” DreamTheater at (yet the keep playing here???). I have sat in multiple seating areas, this particular show I was in the mezzanine almost in the back and it was So Sharp and Ear Bleeding with No lower Bass heard, I had to dawn my professional ear protection the entire show. For the risk of losing my hearing! The Wiltern just has awful acoustics and every time I see a concert here I say “Never Again” and then a great artist plays where I have to see them..... Uhhhggg! As far as the Music....well... if you know Dream Theater music then I don’t need to review that... just Go See The Show! A..M..A..Z..I..N..G..!
