I understand that these days, shows tend to be short but then again, Van Halen doesn' thave many songs over ten minutes, right?.. so what I am saying is that DT used to play 3- 3:30 hour show and I miss those days when they played long and sometimes playing Metallica and Deep Purple.
Like I said, Mangini was manic and I have never seen that many drums, cymbals, tom toms and you name it, all those percussions hard to name and when I first see the stage, it was ALL drum set and the rest of the band members looked like dwarves against that gigantic drum stadium! I bet the total number of places you can bang your drum stick on was over 50... somebody please count number and tell us!
I value your opinion but also give it a listen to the band like "Frost*," "Porcupine Tree."
I have read your opinion and agree that they are getting older.. sad.. but in a way, more matured for sure...in their music, too.
I am not insulting DT by any chance, and DT has always been one of my favorites. Don't misunderstand me, this sort of comment is only possible because I really care for them!
Dear DT fan,
Please do not misunderstand me, as I have said, they still are the best techinicians on earth. The sound was just PERFECT, and oh- so- tight!
It is just that, DT keeps losing its musical fountain(?) which gives listeners deep impression and chill--- the one you get from great classics like "Comfortably Numb," "Red Barchetta," "Spirit of the Radio," or current songs like "Hyperventilate," " Blackest Eyes," or "Milliontown."
Discerning ears can tell what is trully a "good music."
No, dude, there was nothing afterwards, as far as I know. Maybe some private gatherings.
