I was at this show and it was my 5th time to see them as well. The 1st four times I saw them was in Houston, TX. I had the meet & greet this go around and it was well worth the money. Talking to those guys was like seeing Santa for the 1st time when you are a little kid. The 1st time I saw them I was at the Tower Theater in Houston Texas and Mike Portnoy was filming us in the crowd. The footage actually ended up on their Images and Words Live in Tokyo VHS when they skip to a scene back in the states at the once again sold out Tower Theater. I am in the crowd, wearing a white shirt, jumping up and down and looking like a dork. Now on to the KC 2012 show at the meet & greet I was talking to James Labrie trying to tell him the story about the Tower Theater but was so nervous I told him Mike Mangini (instead of Mike Portnoy) was doing the filming. Labrie responded back to me "Do you mean Mike Portnoy?". I said yeah, I mean Portnoy. He said he was just going to let me go with that (Mangini). It was pretty funny.
43 and have been hooked on Dream Theater Phonics since Images & Words and was at that concert as well at the Tower Theater in Houston, TX.
