5 hours from which direction?
How was the crowd up in the balcony?
Taft is awesome. I saw G3 there (with Petrucci) a few years back and was happy to have a reason to go see a show there again :D
Agree! We were sitting a few rows behind you in Orchestra 3. Sounds like this show was one of the better fan turnouts in Ohio too, so hopefully Cincy makes the cut next tour :)
Awesome show! I didn't really miss Portnoy from a playing standpoint, but did kind of miss his stage presence.
That sucks. I went to one show at Nautica before so sort of know what it's like. I can remember being at a DT show (Octavarium tour?) at the Agora that looked like it was OVERsold and thoroughly enjoyed it.
LaBrie actually made a comment between songs last night to the effect of "who ever said you didn't get your money's worth buying a Dream Theater ticket" so wonder if that was pertaining to other shows.
I skipped the Cbus show because I was able to get 5th row tickets to the Cincy show after what I would guess were a bunch of promo tickets at the front of the main section opened up just a few days before the show. I paid $67 for those tickets, which I thought were well worth it compared to what I've paid to see Rush the last couple times. But I honestly can't remember what I had paid for DT tickets in the past.
How bad was the attendance?
I went to the Cincinnati show last night, and didn't notice too many empty seats (although I couldn't see the balcony area). I wondered about having three shows in Ohio though. In the past, I've driven to whichever city they hit in Ohio, whether that be Cincy, Cbus, or Cleveland. Just wondering if maybe they oversaturated the state on this tour, or if the fact that they aren't rotating set lists means people who once went to all the Ohio shows only decided to see one this time?
