Poll: How old are you DT fan?

    I was struck at a DT concert once how there were 60 yo people next to 20 yo's. I thought it was amazing how DT brings so many different generations together. So I'm curious about the actual fan base age mix.

@kenny-c: No not really, I can't play an instrument or sing for shit and I've been a fan for 18 years. You do need an appreciation for the skill that these guys have though.

@DTfanfromcanada: I so wanted to get over and see that, I was trying so hard to raise the money to get over there from Australia and for the tickets to the concerts as well. I bet it was awesome seeing 2 such Iconic bands playing one after the other.

43, Been listening (and loving) since I was introduced to them when I was 25 Wow , 18 years. My Dad and his Lady friend luv them too, they are 65 and 61. My friend is my age, we have been friends for 38 years and he only got right into them in 2008, 15 years after I exposed DT to him. DT shows they get fans of all ages at very different times of their lives. Sign of one damn brilliant band.

I am 30 and have been listening to Dream Theater for the last 14 years. I became a huge fan when I listened to the song "Lie" from 'Awake' and it blew my mind away! I haven't looked back ever since and "Dream Theater" became my favorite band quite instantly. Even after 14 years no other band have ever taken their NUMERO UNO position...

It's quite ironical that I first bought the two albums of "Liquid Tension Experiment" (another classic representation of mind boggling progressive voyage into infinity) and later I started buying the new as well as back catalog of "Dream Theater". The first two Dream Theater albums that I bought were 'Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence' and 'Train of Thought'! Today I own every album, every EP, every DVD and every Box Set that they have released so far. Am a proud owner of 'Black Clouds & Silver Linings' and 'A Dramatic Turn of Events' (Deluxe Limited Collector's Edition Box Sets) :).

I love "Dream Theater" and want to thank them for the wonderful music they create and the spectacular live performances they deliver. Their music has always inspired me to elevate towards a grander simply doesn't seem to stop ever! I love them very much. DREAM THEATER FOREVER \m/ \m/[/b]

I'm 16. Dream Theater is my favourite band since 2010.

Didn't accept my vote (at least I couldn't see the results afterwards). I'm was my 21 y/o son (then 18) that reintroduced me to DT (I'd heard Pull me under in the early 90's but since no other songs made radio play, I errantly assumed "one-hit-wonder"...what a waste of 15 years!!!!!).

Can't vote. I'm 41 and I've been a fan since Images and Words.
