    I'm surprised nobody's already posted this a few days into DT's tour, what show(s) is everybody going to or has already been to? I decided to bite the financial bullet and I am going to the Chester show. Got my ticket ordered but I still have to book my flight. I just didn't want to miss them on this leg. Waiting for another month is going to be brutal though!!

We are in row 12 (L) in section 104. We are sooooo stoked. Saw em play here the night the Rangers choked game 6. Great place for a concert.

I'm so stoked for the July 9th show! I have awesome seats row 4 on Petrucci's side. Making the trip from OKC \,,/

They are so awesome it is unreal. To have all that talent in the same band is mind blowing.

It does surprise me though that they dont have a few 'staple' songs that they will play in every tour. To me 'The Ministry of the Lost Souls' and ' Sacrificed Sons' are sooo powerful they should always be sung. The Ministry of the Lost Souls is a PERFECT song.

Cant wait til July 9!!!

My fiance and i shall be at the San Antonio and Austin shows July 6-7!
We went to the meet and greet in Austin last year and it was life changing (we got engaged hours before too ;) )
Floor middle row 12 for SA, floor middle row 7 for Austin.
Ugh I could never get enough of the best most diverse and emotionally powerful band in history.
Two weeks!!
I wish they were alternating an A and B setlist like last year but this year's setlist is mind blowing, i could watch them play it all year whew.

We( my entire family) are going to the Grand Prarie( TX) show. We purchased 4 11th row tickets and we are psyched. This will be the second time my daughter and I will have seen them in Grand Prarie since the release of Dramatic Turn Of Events. AWESOME album!!!

I have seen the current setlist and cant wait to hear the rest of the album live. I am also hoping they add a few extras since this will be their second time through in less than a year. Our setlist last fall did not include Pull Me Under or Far From Heaven. I would really like to hear those songs.

Since becoming a fan about a dozen years ago I have often wondered why Dream Theatre does not have some concert staples in their set list. I have felt that songs such as Sacrificed Sons, The Ministry of Lost Souls, Pull Me Under, Forsaken and The Answer Lies Within are classics and some of the best pieces of music ever written.

The Ministry of Lost Souls and Sacrificed Sons are epic both lyrically & musically and I wish they were always played. I wonder if the band themselves know how good and powerful those two song are. ABSOLUTE classics!!

Cant wait until July 9.

Flying in from Denmark to see them in Boston, the 2 gigs in Huntington and rounding the trip of with Chester. Had kinda hoped they would switch between two sets, but it seems they stick to the same setlist
