okay off to the concert.....so excited!!!!!
I had a question about the GA tickets....Are they in fact standing room only because when I got my tickets they appear to have seat numbers. I just don't know if I come early to get close to the stage would be meaningless if I have to sit at my assigned seat.....ANYONE KNOW?
I hadn't seen DT live since the Greek Theater over 7 years ago. Tonight's show was full of positive energy from both the band and the audience in return. I saw Trivium fans rocking out and head banging as much as the older DT fans. The highlight for me was when James said, "We read on the forums some concern about our set list." Then BAM! Caught in a Web to finally getting to hear Breaking All Illusions live!
That solidified my love for this song as my favorite on the new album.
Mike Mangini was my first thought for replacing Portnoy and I'm glad that the audience was introduced to his personality during his drum solo.
Highlights from the show;
The cube screens playing the guy on the unicycle in the background (do we have a name for him yet? like Eddie?)
Jordan did a whole bunch of interaction that I haven't seen in the past (looking at the camera during the solo, Keytar solo with both Johns, His avatar playing a surround keyboard on screen, and generally looking happy).
